Hooooray! Duolingo teaches grammar!

I don't know if this is old or new and how frequent it is, but I'm noticing it for the first time and just let me express my joy of this!

I'm pretty sure this feature has been here for a long time.

Yes, it has been in the Tips Tab right to the Discussion Tab of some lessons, it is just better visible now.

No, it was always accessible directly in the lesson, like on the screenshot.

You're right, it was there too. Anyway, it has been around for a long time for sure, possibly in several places :)

I can't wait until they implement it into the Android app. Just wondering but is it avaliable on iOS?

Same here! The Android app interface I think is simply gorgeous right off the bat. The available features have zero-to-no learning curve, and the design and usability are great. I can only anticipate fantastic new implementations and capabilities as the duolingo design team develops it further into its full potential.

They're trying to figure out how to cleanly implement the grammar from the web on the mobile apps.

it would be also better if they add Discussions

This is cool. Didn't know about this. Something to look forward to.

No, not in iOS, either.

It's always been there, I think either someone pointed it out to me, or DL told to click it during and intro lesson, I don't remember. :)
Unfortunately, its not there for all the lessons, and shows up less frequently as you progress. But there are always helpful explanations in the Discussion Forums to make up for it!

yeah, I've had those for quite some time, usually much shorter though. But they tend to be on very basic grammar, after the first checkpoint I don't think I have seen any... (and now I really need them!)

Nice - I think it was in the lesson specific discussion before, but now it is much easier to look at within the lesson, and therefore more useful :)

It was in the lesson before too (even in the old design).

EDIT: I'm pretty sure the reason that no one knew about this was that there are no more Tips & Notes sections after you reach a certain point in the tree, unfortunately.

As some others have said - I would love to see some of the grammar, reporting, and discussion features come to the mobile apps, as they are my primary point of contact with Duolingo. Thanks for all your amazing work!!!

Now they need to add that to the Italian course!

This has been there from almost the very start. The grammar instruction on Duolingo is not nearly detailed enough though.:(

As I've been using the iOS app which doesn't have these notes I've also only just recently discovered the grammar notes on website

Good to know! I been accessing the Duolingo lessons through my mobile app - and the features and interactivity are still quite limited. (Although this is understandable as I think they just released the Android version mid-to-late last year.) This motivates me to log-on more often via desktop and hopefully be more active in the discussions and interact with all you awesome polygots and culturalistas!

I can't seem to find this in the French tree, am I missing something?

July 12, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Shazumi

I couldn't find it anywhere.. tried a practice and then even tried to redo a few skills but nothing. Can anyone in French tell me where there is something like this?

February 18, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CecilieO.

are you trying to do the very first few lessons? they usually come up there for me

edit: actually, I get them as pop-ups, not collected like OP has. Possibly this is only in the spanish course?
