このテレビは古いでず

It should be "です" not "でず". Probably just a typo, but just to make it clear to other people.

Am i missing something, or do they quiz us on new words without actually teaching them first? I'm using the Android version, if that makes a difference.

That's the way DuoLingo works. You just have to tap on the word to see the translation. That's how it teaches you the new words.

Not always the translation helps. I feel like the whole Japanese course is a guessing game sometimes. It's ok though.

Don't I seem to be rude or impolite not sounding the ending "desu"? Like in here: "このテレビはふるい". To what degree is it essential for peaceful and quiet friend-like chatting?

Did the app recently remove the option for people to type in Japanese? I had this option a few weeks ago but it seems to have gone?
