A distinction between hard and soft vowels is mentioned but not further defined or identified in examples. Or, are we to understand this is the same distinction as between long and short vowels? Is a hard vowel the same as a long vowel, and soft the same as short?

The section on initial g and k preceding soft vowels would really benefit from some audio samples. In fact, every chapter of this course could use a recorded illustration of pronunciation. It appears that only this Alphabet chapter offers the very useful audio guidance.
