I'd like commend the Welsh team on not making any of their units horrendously large. There are no units with more than seven lessons and, for me at least, this definitely helps with motivation; too many times have I felt put off from progressing through a tree on Duolingo because the next unit was nine or ten lessons long. I'd much rather have more units each with fewer lessons than vice versa. I don't know whether this was a conscious decision on the team's part but I'm glad the course ended up being structured this way in any case.

There is one problem with this... it facilitates addiction! Just one more level...

Dw i ddim yn hoffi coffi, dw i'n hoffi te :) I am also glad that the units are short. This is something that has always bothered me - if the unit is too large I just want to give up hehe.

It was just the way we adapted the adult courses which tend to have fairly short units to be taught in one (sometimes two) evening classes. I'm glad it works for the Duolingo course.

I always prefered the longer lessons where each word was tested three or four times across fifteen or twenty questions, but I can see why the decision was made. This way, those who learn a lot faster than me and don't need the repetition can move more quickly through the material. After all, there's nothing stopping me repeating a unit if I feel the need to go over the material more thoroughly.
