I think that the flashcard system is unfair and cheap. people just rush right through them and get you stregth back. its unfair. they should change it so you have to get the flashcard right to move on.
I agree that the flashcards would be improved if we had to provide the answers instead of just flipping through. Also, would it be possible to access the flashcards from the Skills page too? Example- practice your skills in "Objects". If you have finished all the lessons in that skill, the strengthen Objects box appears on the right with a link to do a timed practice or untimed practice. I think it would be very helpful if a third option appeared on that page. It would be the flashcards for that skill. That way, you could practice the words from that skill group. Having an option in flashcards to practice from either 1)the learned language to your native language OR 2)having the words appear in your native language and you would have to supply the learned language translation, would be great. Also, the previous iteration of flashcards, which allowed you to continue to the next set of words without closing out the flashcard box was much easier. It also encouraged longer practice times in flashcards since you didn't have to continually start over when practicing more than one word group.
I agree they should've juts told you to write the meaning so that other people dont rush to get their bar full!
A nice feature would be one that lets people pick the words they'd like to practice from the word list to the left.
I agree, it should truly check. Most online flashcard applications do a better job than the Duolingo flashcards! And the flashcards need to contain the gender of the noun for languages like French and German.
Well, if people want to cheat themselves...good for them..that's their problem. But, I do agree, the flashcards need an update. And soon...
I am not sure what you mean by flashcards? Is that the 'which word means' screen?
It would be nice if the flashcards with nouns would show the gender by using the proper version of the word "the" (where applicable). German has three genders, so learning the word with the proper article would be especially helpful.
