DuoLingo should have a back/previous button on every screen.

I think DuoLingo should have a back/previous button on every screen. There are so many times when I want to go back to check something or look at something again but I hit continue and I can not get back. Most language course have a way to navigate back and forward. I think it would make DuoLingo a much better language site. I hope someone from Duolingo sees this message.... :)

you then could cheat a lot easier

Oh no.....you can only go back or forward to what where you have already been... :) But how could one cheat? Certainly not going back. Even if you could go forward to where you haven't been, what would you see? Just more questions. If someone wanted to cheat it would be a lot easier to go to Google.... :) I haven't seen any other language site that did not let you navigate back and forward.

Also why cheat? Any one doing that is just not going to learn the language....at least not that part and at that time.... :)

might not be a good idea

How does one get a message to The DuoLingo staff?

One doesn't. There are over 150 million users. It would overwhelm the staff if you can.

But they need to hear feedback and suggestions....It's not a good idea to put your head in the sand... lol :)

At the end of the lesson, there is a "Review Lesson" button. You can check it then.

Yes but when you want to check something quickly as an after thought you should be able to do it right then and there. When you are learning repetition and validation are extremely important. It would be so easy to add these buttons...:)

This isn't exactly what you are looking for, but it might be semi-helpful:

I've developed the habit of clicking on the "Discuss Sentence" button every time I have even a slight hesitation when answering a question/screen. That way, if I have a follow-up question, I can look thru my browser history and re-locate the page.

Sometimes I go a step further and copy/paste my incorrect answer to a notepad app along with the URL of the corresponding "Discuss Sentence" page. I've found this very helpful when debugging my grammar (over time, I've identified some of my common mistakes this way).

Thanks for the ideas... At one time I was documenting everything so I would have a list of all the words and sentences to go over all in one place. But it is extremely time consuming. You gave me an idea though, but I have to check it to see if it will work as I envision. That is to use history in Chrome and see if it is logging each separate screen/page as I use DuoLingo. They really should have the navigation buttons though. It would enhance our learning.

I just tried using Chrome's history but it is only tracking the main site not each page..... arggggg! Ok DuoLingo let's put those navigation buttons on the pages... I'm a programmer and willing to help... :)

Yup. Is why I click thru to the "Discuss Sentence" page.

And I know what you mean about keeping a word-list (takes time). So far, I've found it helpful. My brain prefers to learn: the m/f versions of adjectives at the same time, verb infinitives and all of the present-tense conjugates at the same time, etc. It's extra work, but is the only way my brain is willing to store the info.

Me again. I just found this thread re: a Chrome extension which you might find interesting.

My only request is that if you get this working ... ping me back (I've installed it, but somethings not working right).

Long story short: it is no longer supported, but it is open source. https://github.com/JakeLin/DuolingoNotes

What I wrote to the developer: Is this extension still supported? I just installed it on MacOS Sierra 10.12.5, Chrome 59.0.3071.115. I've confirmed that the extension version is current (2.0) and have checked at chrome://extensions/configureCommands to dbl check those settings.

The UI is working as described, but the data is not getting stored.

There are a few recent reviews at the Chrome store which imply that the extension stopped working somewhere around 56.0.2924.87.

Is there any chance of getting the extension up and running again??

And the reply: Sorry, I am not working on this app, if you like to, you can update it, it is open sourced. https://github.com/JakeLin/DuolingoNotes thanks.
