Where is the Vocab Practice section? I used this everyday and i also checked it to keep track of the number of words i had learned. Has this been removed in the new design?
Hey Emorin30- the vocab page has been removed in the new design. Here's some more info about it :)
"One thing I’m sure some of you will miss is the vocabulary page. After a lot of testing, we found that in its current form it wasn’t helping you learn a language faster or stick with the language you are learning longer. Instead, it complicated our system by adding another layer of information that wasn’t well integrated. We went one layer up and instead of "word strength" you’ll now see "skill strength" in a lot of places.
That being said, I can guarantee you that in our efforts to bring all of you the best learning experience, we haven’t seen the last of the vocabulary page. We still believe that learning a language largely depends on having a huge vocabulary, and once we come up with a good way to integrate it across all platforms it will come back." - Marcel / Duolingo Designer
