Duolingo is the most popular way to learn languages in the world. Best of all, it's 100% free!

Let the user choose the test please!!

I love Duolingo, I think it's an amazing tool for anyone who wants to start learning a new language but I was thinking that, in the "Practice skill" tests, or in the "Practice weakest words" tests, you should let the user choose what kind of test they want to do, for example to choose between the following types of questions for the test: 1) Random (as it is now) 2) All listening 3) All speaking 4) All translating TO English 5) All translating FROM English

This way a user could really choose the area they are weaker on, i.e. in my case it would be good to practice the translating FROM English, because I find it particularly challenging and helps me best in remembering the words.

Any chance we might get this in the future? it would make Duolingo even better than now! thank you

Is your German skill you just shown only from learning on this site? If so, I'm definitely not stopping til I complete the entire course.

Very impressive that you completed the tree with such little practice. I'm level 12 and I am not even close to done.

Das ist eine sehr gute Idee! Ich hoffe Duolingo addiert diese Idee. (actually: Ich hoffe Duolingo führt diese Idee ein.) Ich brauche Hilfe beim Hörverstehen und beim Übersetzen vom Englischen ins Deutsche. (?) Nicht vom Deutschen ins Englische, weil es einfach ist. Viel Glück (mein Freund)! (Don't use "mein Freund",you sound like an old creepy person. Keep up the good work!!!)

Unless you want to be condescending or are talking to really good actual friends (still might sound weird to some people).

I think that rather than the users themselves choosing which areas they want to practice, Duolingo should do that for us. The system is already monitoring individual word strength. There could be an "exercise type strength" as well, and the frequency of each exercise could be adjusted according to how well we are doing in each.

Having the user choose the exercise types themselves is probably something most people don't want to be bothered with, and it invites gaming the system (e.g. work through the whole tree with only speaking exercises).

Things would definately work better that way... You could work on your weaker points.

Good idea.I'm weak on listening and I usually practice on my mobile app,it's only 2 or 3 listening tests in a lesson,really not enough for me.

This would be an amazing feature, and hopefully not too hard to implement! Translating from english is indeed the hardest part and I would like to practice that
