Duolingo's New Stories!

WOW! What a great idea to have stories. I only had time to read one story but, it was a cool experience and it would be fun to have always. One thing that I recommend would be when trying to fill in the blank word with no multiple choice; it can be hard and frustrating especially when there are so many words it could potentially be. Also, I do not know if this is already an idea but, I would love if the stories eventually got harder and more intriguing as well as longer. But, overall it was great!

Keep it up Duolingo!

totally love em. Yes, they might want to try more stories.. and DIFFERENT level stories.. the stories now are perfect and challenging for me.. maybe throw in some gentler level stories so that folks that are starting out can discover the additional learning help they provide. Anything to add to my learning faucets is appreciated. Thanks guys!

I also thought that I just couldn't figure out how to use it

I do agree with you on that, there was not a whole lot of explanation or instructions (especially because most of it, if not all of it was in Spanish and it was hard for me to understand some of it) on how to work/use the story in the way they wanted it.

I just tried one it was so hard I didn't know a single word and then it glitches and put me on the home page of Duolingo

Hmmm... that is weird about it glitching out. I did not have that problem with mine. As for the difficult stories, I agree. But, I think because Duolingo is still working on it, they do not have a bunch of stories to choose from resulting in some being much harder than others. But, I totally understand your frustration! There were a lot of words that I am not familiar with and have not learned in the story I "read".

It's not really helping me learn, it's messing my up with learning a lot and It's not really easy to work it for me

Thanks for your comment! When I really think about it, yeah, it does not exactly "help" me learn per say but, it is interesting and a good way to comprehend the language at hand in a more or less "real life situation". I believe that it does help you string together words and understand full-on sentences better but, it does not (on a regular basis throughout the story0 help you learn anything new.

Additionally it is supposed for advanced students, the target audience are definitively not the beginners. They can try it, if they are very enthusiastic, why not? But please donĀ“t complain about the (high) level of difficulty then.
