Course 'Tips and Notes' - a reminder about the course notes (updated mid-March 2019)

Just a reminder that Duolingo has 'Tips and Notes' for the language patterns, background information and so on to support most sections of the course. If you read these before starting on a new section you will find them helpful in understanding more about the topic before you begin. They also point out any known problems with the section and with the course in general that we have not yet been able to fix. We try and keep them updated with common questions that we notice from feedback in reporting and in the discussions. As at mid-March 2019, the notes for the Welsh course are not available through the app, but they can be accessed if you have a web browser on a computer or mobile device and an internet connection:

  • Using your web browser, go to and log on, then choose your course - you may need to make your browser show the desktop/full version of the web pages. On the course navigation screen, you can click on the icon for a section, then click on the light-bulb symbol in the pop-up window to see the notes for the section. The notes now appear in a two-column format if you are using a wide window, so some tables may be split across the two columns. (If you still cannot access the web-site using your device's usual web browser, you could try the 'Puffin' browser app, available from your app store.)

  • You can also go to the notes directly if you know the URL name of the course section. For example, the notes for the section 'Present 1' (the short name you may see on some devices is 'Present1') are available here - - note the hyphens inserted in the 'long name' of the section. Another example, for the section 'Auxiliary Past Gwneud' (short name 'AuxPGwneud') - (Note - If using the long name with hyphens does not work (for example 'Present-Tense-3'), try again using the short name with hyphens ('Present-3') - the URL names are not entirely consistent at the moment and we are unable to update them until the next version of the course).

  • A full set of the notes is here - - if you take a copy for off-line use, remember to go back and refresh it from time to time to get the latest version. The notes are also available if you go to (putting your own userid instead of 'yourusername') and click on the lightbulb icon on each line. That will show you the course notes for that section of the course. (Note - the links are to a site not run by Duolingo, but kindly run by a third party.)

I don't know if it helps but I have put the Duolingo-webbside as a bookmark on my android phone, next to my app-icon for Duo. By doing so I can easily switch between the two. I choose the web-vesion whenever I need the notes, otherwise I choose the app.

How come this information is so well hidden ? I have been going crazy trying to make sense of the grammar and have had to use other websites and course providers!

I've been posting them all over the Hebrew discussions (even in the skills) This is the exact thing I post:

how to get tips and notes: (My favourite ways are the first two, aside from the Memrise course):

(By the creator of the *Memrise Hebrew Duolingo vocab course I'm learning Hebrew Duolingo on Memrise! ):

organized by skill in one pdf for the whole course:

Replace your username where USERNAME is for information on your progress & the tips & notes:

The whole course tips and notes are here (and the site has one for each Duolingo language): organized by skill individually:

You can also get them on the site (make sure your browser is in desktop view mode so you can see the other duolingo features like discussions & timed practice (the language clubs were only on the app. Now that they are discontinued, many of us have moved to either or both the DISCORD** Hebrew servers, one is at: or the Facebook Duolingo Hebrew learners Facebook page). From discussions you can search for all the discussions in this course (like this one you're reading, as well as see general duolingo discussions). If you can't see discussions on the main screen once logged into duolingo you're not in desktop view.

If you are taking a different language you can use your language DISCORD server @

Or change the language name into your language.
