Welcome to Duolingo! (Tour for Newbies)
Hi everyone! If you're new to Duolingo and can't find your way around, well here's more or less a walkthrough of the major features on Duolingo. I hope you find this useful and are able to use this great site more easily and effectively!
This is basically what your window will look like when you login:
The following images give you a brief description of the features on this page:
If you want to mark up your posts to discussions, like apply bold and so on, use the following before and after the word or phrase:
For Bold, use **
For Italics, use *
For Bold Italics, use ***
Other Markup Syntax
- For unordered lists, like the one above use - or a single * followed by a space before each line.
- For ordered lists, just start with the number followed by a period, e.g. 1.
- To add a link, do it thus [alternate text](link)
- For an image its about the same thing, but a little different: ![alternate text](image link)
- For headers, prepend the heading line with 1 to 6 # signs depending on the level of heading you want.
- To indent, prepend the line with a number of > signs, also depending on the depth of indenting you want.
- To escape a markup character, use backslash, like this: \[
- You can also escape a markup character by placing ticks (`) before and after the phrase.
PS: Everyone is welcome to share any tip they may have found useful on DL!
Duolingo uses Markdown as its markup language ;).
\1. For unordered lists, like the one above use - or a single * followed by a space before each line. After two consecutive newlines (press twice enter) before the first item of the list and one newline between items.
2. New paragraph: two consecutive newlines (press twice enter)
3. Newline without creating a new paragraph: two consecutive spaces then newline.
Indeed. This seems to apply to an earlier version of DL on a PC. And I got to this page by a link in a discussion of a question - I have no idea where DL hides useful Support material like this.
