Duolingo, Vocab page. Pretty please?
This post comments on the new Duolingo design, and a lot of users have requested the return of the Vocabulary page: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/1538409
The post is now one month old, and still no vocab page. I understand that it takes time to develop a full-featured and robust system, and that your priorities are inclined towards the new incubator program. But if you read the comments on that post, the Vocab section is critical to a lot of people's learning process.
Could you share the development status of the Vocab section with us, the community? If it is at a very early stage in development, could you create an intermediate page that just lists out the words and their meanings, separated by lesson? It doesn't have to be sleek or anything, just a plain list will do wonders.
For anyone who shares my sentiment, please up vote this page to increase visibility.
Hey there! We are aware that viewing vocab is something the community would like to see on Duolingo. We're working on it. We have a lot of improvements and features being worked on at the moment. We'll definitely keep you all informed when it's clearer when we'll have a vocab update.
sorry to be so pushing but please speed it up :(
I came back to duolinguo after a break and now the vocab and all those very useful tools are gone! please give us back as soon as possible these features:
the list of words itself the "practice weakest words" button ( I loved it) the "practice word" button for each individual word. Please, get those items back on the menu asap. Thanks. A.
Just reiterating what has been said here and elsewhere about how useful the vocabulary page was. Your answer is a little worrisome, frankly, in that it suggests it's something "we'd like to see" and not something integral to the site and that we had that in perfectly fine working form.
I think the only reason that such an essential feature as access to learned vocabulary isn't available to users is that Duolingo is afraid that competitors would use it to steal their course content data.
It's obviously a dilemma for them. On the one hand it's a basic requirement for a language learner to personally possess a list of their learned vocabulary. Contrasting this is Duolingo's equally valid business sense of avoiding having their product ripped off by competitors. This is perhaps also another reason why access to the skill lessons disappeared once you start the Crown process.
Must give them headaches given their origin in desiring free access to education. Perhaps Tiny Cards is their work around?
