Re: Update grid is TERRIBLE

I did exactly that. For me as someone who uses Duoliongo more or less exclusively in a recap scenario it is now borderline worthless as especially the grammar can't be accessed easily. A UI update that bad more or less qualifies as a bug. At least you should have the opportunity to choose between t...

Re: Big changes coming to a Duolingo home screen near you!

This Monday I saw the path on my PC. On the Android app I still have the tree, so I keep doing my lessons on the app, but here are my observations: On my English->French tree, I'm in the middle of unit 7 (out of 10) - I have about a dozen of different skills open at different levels. On the never e...

So how would you find the money to pay for the staff and other things like server storage that Duo needs to have run? Having paid for versions of apps, alongside a free version isn't that uncommon, I think I've got at least 6 others on various devices. After 2127 days, I've also seen a lot of change...

Re: Giving lingots to other users

Currently they are pushing the new Duolingo Super thing, and you can get two weeks for free. It's totally up to you. Personally I feel if a site is touting how they are "free" and then they push a paid version, is it really "free"? Just rhetorically asking...LOL They are just us...

His suggestions of reading in the target language for fun are all very well - but I don't understand enough to be able to.

Not even a children's book (may be one you've read in your native language) or a newspaper article where you possibly know the sort of things it's likely to be saying.?

A tip for leagues. Get in later in the day, they usually give you people that aren't so competitive.
