Duolingo Grammar Guides Hub: (Tips and Notes PDFs!)

Duolingo Grammar Guides

Hi!

On the Discussion forums, I have seen many posts from people asking questions like "Where can I find PDFs/Word documents of the Tips and Notes?". Here is where you can find them! I have created "Duolingo Grammar Guides", which are handy PDFs or Word documents which contain the Tips and Notes from each course. I will make a guide for each course (for English speakers), but they are not all ready yet, so you can follow this page to keep track of each guide's progress!


Stage 1/3 ~ Coming Soon:

~ Irish

~ Danish

~ Swedish

~ Turkish

~ Ukrainian

~ Norwegian (Bokmål)

~ Esperanto

~ Polish

~ Welsh

~ Vietnamese

~ Hungarian

~ Hebrew

~ Greek

~ Romanian

~ Swahili

Update: The guides listed above will enter Stage 2, starting with Irish once the guides already being worked on are completed.

[Note: The courses which are in Phase 1 of the Incubator are not listed]


Stage 2 ~ Underway

German: The German guide is underway! I expect this one to take a while because the German tree is such a long one, but it should still be ready in the next few weeks or so. I hope to start adding the Tips and Notes once the French guide IScloser to completion.

French: I have begun to add the Tips and Notes. It shouldn't take long it is my top priority at the moment. I can't give an accurate estimate as to when the guide will be available, but it should be within the next few weeks.

Portuguese: The cover has been designed and I am now adding to the contents page. I expect to start adding the Tips and Notes once the German and French guides are nearer to completion. Once these guides are completed I can give an estimate as to when the Portuguese guide will be available.

Russian: I expect the progress on this guide to be at a bit of a standstill for the time being, mainly due to the other guides that must be completed first, but after that I will easily make up for lost time and make sure that the guide is released by the end of the month.


Stage 3: Available Guides!

Spanish

Italian

Dutch

To download these guides, click here


I'd like to note that all of this is not just my own work. I am only responsible for the layout/editing/formatting, but I'd like to thank Duolingo and the course contributors for creating the images and tips and notes. I have used the images and the tips and notes without permission based on the fact that I have no intention to use them for personal gains. I have created these guides for your convenience, so please don't use them in an unintended way!

(I may also be able to make guides for the courses which are for speakers of other languages, but the ones above need to be done first)

Enjoy!

Wow thank you! I'm excited for Russian since on my mobile browser Duolingo has made it impossible to access these. My lessons lately have been introducing some weird sentence structures that I am clueless about. I really appreciate that the Duolingo community is there to compensate for something that Duolingo takes away. I'll be checking in again!

June 9, 2017

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

No problem:) I will be able to work on the Russian guide again once I finish French, German and Portuguese. It takes my roughly 1-4 days to make each one depending on the amount of skills which have Tips and Notes, so Russian should not be much longer:)

June 9, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/frogger2013

No rush! I'm just happy it will happen eventually. I was really worried I wouldn't have access to the notes at all. 1-4 days sounds like a lot of work. I think we all really appreciate the time and effort you're giving.

Hi there how are you is turkish easy for you to learn

December 23, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/frogger2013

Hi! Was this question for me? I sadly have not been focusing on Turkish, and it does not look like I have gotten much farther than you already have by now. I do not have anyone to speak Turkish with, so I don't know if learning it is easy, but the lessons on Duolingo are really easy so far. It seems like a very straightforward and logical language to me. I wish i could give it more time. How do you like it?

February 20, 2019

I'm looking forward to downloading the German guide. I'll find it very useful. Thank you.

It will be ready very soon:) I will have the Dutch guide finished today and then I will be working on the French guide right away!

Thanks for letting me know, otsogutxi! I see your learning Dutch; good luck with it!

June 9, 2017

It's a very nice language. It's quite easy to learn for me (but then again I am used to German and Norwegian, both are quite similar).

This is a fantastic project! I know several people have started on something like this but no one has finished. Is there anything we can do to help you along? I'm almost done with the Esperanto tree and can give you a dump of the tips and notes if you like.

June 14, 2017

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

Thanks:) I've finished the tree already so I have access to all the tips and notes. Good luck with finishing it:)

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/S0R0USH

I made one for turkish but its from a year ago. I don't know if they changed anything, if anyone needs it google "Turkish grammar notes epub site:duolingo.com", I should be the first result.

You can copy and do whatever you want with it. I don't hold any rights to it. I just compiled it.

June 9, 2017

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

I'll just have to make sure that nothing with the tree was updated first. It will hopefully save me from having to "unlock" the Turkish tree.

Thanks!

June 9, 2017

Any updates on this? :D If you've made another post I can't find it since activity is gone.

July 2, 2017

Great! When you finish the next guides, are you gonna edit this post to include them or put them somewhere else?

If you want:) It is a lot of work though.

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

Hey, Otsogutxi, how are you doing?

I was wondering how you got all the tips and notes, did the moderators share them with you? It's just that the last time I checked (March 2018), all the Tips and notes for the languages I'm studying were gone. I had copied all of the Dutch grammar Tips and notes, so I have them, but I was just wondering in case there's a way some of us can help you with the formatting/editing process.

Just let know, I've just followed this thread to get a notification next time I log in.

Cheers!

I saw that you could also make the guides for speakers of other languages. I'm about to finish the Esperanto course from Spanish (Probably in the next 10 days) and I'm more than willing to help you make it into a guide.

How do you PDF those tips and guides? I tried using web page to pdf converters, but no such luck. I'd like to do Hebrew for myself.

August 9, 2018

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

Hi Heilswahrheit,

If you don't care about the format being exactly the same as the one he used (I mean, the guy who compiled these guides), you can just copy/paste to a word document, format it as you wish, and then save as pdf.

I have no idea how he got the document to have that design, I'd like to know!

Hope this helps.

December 11, 2018

Any update on this?

August 12, 2018

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

You can print them yourself:

  • log in on www.duolingo.com
  • open a new tab and go to your unofficial progress page
    https://www.duome.eu/FluffyLongbottom/progress
    This web page will show the skills of your active course in duolingo

  • sort "progress by Original order"

  • tap all the light bulbs
  • print the page to a PDF-file
    or copy and paste the text in a Word-processor.
August 12, 2018

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

^^^ THIS Progress page that pentaan posted about is very helpful; I didn't know it existed! Follow the duome.eu link above, but place your own name in place of "FluffyLongbottom." You may be surprised at the amount of detail you see!

Of course, you can only access the skills you've unlocked so far, since this goes off your personal progress, but that's fine.

I assume that to change languages, you probably have to go back to the main Duolingo page and change your active language there.

Thank you, pentaan! A lingot for you for showing us this great resource!

September 7, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MaiGee5

I think people are looking for hints and tips or some kind of mentoring for individual language courses. It seems these were available previously, but cannot be found now. That's what I'm hoping for in regard to Irish. Thanks and good luck to all.

I would really appreciate it if someone could help me get the FRENCH GUIDE from this series. PS -- Feel free to connect if you are also learning FRENCH and plan on being a fluent speaker. Maybe we can learn together. All the best, everyone. :-)

September 18, 2018

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

yes, the grammar tips and notes are normally available on the website. But I've noticed that for some courses the notes/explanations are almost non-existent (like for the English for Spanish speakers course, which I wanted to recommend to my EFL students).
