on a envoyé chercher qui (= complément d'objet direct / COD) −> réponse : nous

« on nous a envoyés » car le COD est placé avant l'auxiliaire avoir.

It's the trickiest rules among french grammar rules.
When the COD is located before the auxiliary « avoir » in a sentence, the participle have to be agreed with it (but in any case, we never have to agree the participle with the subject with the auxiliary « avoir »).

In my native language, french, Siri makes a lot of errors too. It doesn't analyse well some grammatical obvious schemes. :)

I would like to study cases one after the other and not mixed, because it too hard to deal with vocabulary + gender + cases together IMLB (in my little brain).
I would enjoy an option to chose what mix I want among cases to study.

I even bet on that as the major improvement for native speakers of declination free language who want to learn Russian, German, Polish and so on.

@Marina Yeees, that's it ! I've called it Siri, but perhaps it's a wrong denomination indeed. And it not recognise a single word of my cut-with-a-knife accent in russian ! But… когда я повтаряю, оно иногда понимает.

Yes, an alternative mode is the best option to consider. Indeed I use such a mode with siri on iOS but it's not flowless because Siri needs a sentence to recognize the word. If this mode is integrated to lingvist, it should allow the recognition of the word in his near environment, I participated to the test of the vocal system recently and it sucked, he didn't recognize my beautiful accent ! ^^
Thanx for the link, I visited it yet.

I'm conscious that precise spelling is, peculiarly for russian, eventually essential to know radicals to progress. It's not a way to take bad habits I'm looking for, it's a way to not focus too much on spelling which might divert us from progress in language learning. And ok, the machine have to correct and indicate strongly the errors to us, but maybe the weight of such a typo error could be decreased.
I have an autocorrective brain when I read foreigner writing french, I hope russian people will do the same with my олбансций яазык.

Привет всем,
My remark is especially for russian,

I have seen Russians who write approximately : i.e. a for o… And I, as a French, don't ought to do better than them ! Why isn't it an option to allow approximation if the learner is agree ? I'm fed up with errors of a а for a я - a и for a e and so on that say that I don't know the word.
It might be interesting to ask the learner for accuracy, but we should be allowed to choose. For example, it could be a cursor that permit to be lazy on spelling of a letter for the x first presentations.
