I thought it was interesting what he had to say about learning words with the same ''theme'' (video 3)

Oh my effing god every single damn video on the page started autoplaying simultaneously. DEATH TO AUTOPLAYING VIDEOS! You might want to take the ?play=1 bit out of your link.

On the flipside, very interesting project, thanks for linking to it.

I disagree, no punishment is too severe for webmasters that make videos autoplay. I would backtrack a bit and maybe suggest just 15 lashes for a first time offender though :o)

The internet is revolutionary because you don't sit there passively absorbing it, and I resent even the slightest pollution of that philosophy, much as I would resent finding the smallest hair in my soup. Except my speakers were set very loud, and I was treated to 8 simultaneously talking identically sounding opera singers at a volume I only reserve for parties, on a page that locked up under the weight of delivering that pleasure to me :)

It would be great if Duolingo could adopt some of these concepts like thematic groups of words . See more here: https://d2pq0u4uni88oo.cloudfront.net/assets/001/421/783/35d21a0196d4cc70defa2bbe1f045da1_h264_high.mp4

I don't see any reason why duo has to even change much, they could just change the practice system to prefer words in thematic groups when pulling from your weakest set. They could probably even do this as a test group and test effectiveness before rolling it out site wide. This is nice since it is probably completely server side.
