Display Noun Gender on Hover-Over? Good Idea?
In the German course I'm taking, when you hover over a word, it displays the gender of the noun. I find this helpful for learning the genders of the nouns, and also for "connecting the dots" in my head about the word endings and cases and how they change as a function of the nouns' genders.
I think it would be super useful if the Russian course could add this too. I don't know if this is something they are planning and just haven't implemented yet?
Currently the hover-over feature just shows a translation but I haven't ever seen it display the gender for nouns.
Nice observation - I would actually want to go one step further than this, though this is probably beyond Duolingo's goal at this point.
I would like an option to ONLY show me the root and the gender/aspect/case.
Sometimes I just don't remember the word but I want to figure out the form on my own. If I hover I get all the information handed to me. Some people would want that. And, depending on what I'm doing that day, I might too. But some days I would rather be able to practice my grammar even if I sometimes forget a word.
It works fine, nothing is wrong, I go to yandex or google to find the root/word and go from there. But it would be nice to toggle that in the app. Though that seems like a basic framework thing and I'm not sure how useful that would be in many other languages.
