new health heart is depressing and unusable. I need to change to Memrise Babbel any suggestions
I've heard good things about Babbel, you can use a combination of programs like Babbel, Lingvist and Memrise.
I haven't used health yet but the system doesn't seem to have many fans.
That's pretty much what I'm doing. I use a combination of Duolingo, Memrise and Babel. Memrise is good for learning a lot of single words and gradually stringing them together into sentences. No explanation of the rules behind anything though. On it's own it would probably be a bit confusing at times.
Babel explains how things work as you go along, giving you a bit of a deeper understanding of what's going on, like a class. It's got a lot of example conversations in it. You do have to pay for the subscription though but if you don't mind doing that I'd recommend it.
I am glad I finished the German tree before this new health system that, as far as I can tell, both punishes you for making errors and forces you to learn a specific way as per some sort of statistics. Yeah, I might have to start looking at alternatives.
Which is a shame, because I love duo as it is now and I keep recommending it to friends and strangers.
