Lack of English to Spanish questions
When I first started using Duolingo, a long long time ago, I was regularly given an English expression and asked for the Spanish equivalent.
Now, I very very very very rarely get asked this sort of question. I only get Spanish -> English and the various multiple choice questions.
Am I unusual? Or is everything seeing this behaviour?
I have noticed the same thing when it comes to German. For the most of the time it feels like I'm learning English rather than German.... not that I don't need to practice my English as well but it's German I'm here for! I really want to practice to write German more, not just be able to understand and translate it.
I don't know about you but over the past 3 or 4 days when doing German practice sessions I've been getting almost a 50/50 ratio of English-->German , German -->English questions which I'm thankful fo but it's also slowed me down a lot. I find it a far better way of learning because it forces you to think of cases which when translating into English don't require as much thought
I'm level 13 but I spend most of my time through the week doing practice sessions so it could be that because I've done so many of those that I'm getting a new formula to try. This could however be a test that the devs are running to see wether or not to implement it across the board
