Why did I buy timed practice but nothing happened?
Thank you, but I do use what you have shown above. If you to the Lingot Store, there is Timed Practice listed. It is a practice session which takes about 20 minutes to complete and covers a range of topics. I used to do it every couple of weeks, but I can no longer access it. I use a laptop computer.
Ahhh, you are thinking about the progress quiz which they used to have available for certain languages! Many of us miss those! That was where you could purchase a comprehensive quiz for something like 25 lingots and you would get a comprehensive quiz that resulted in a numerical rating.
The progress quiz was removed and so was the option to purchase it. There is only the option to purchase Timed Practice now and that is totally different.
Hopefully they will bring back the progress quiz or something like it, but don't hold your breath!
That's what we're all talking about! I heard somebody reference the Japanese store for the DuoLingo tracksuit still being sold as well but I'm not sure if it was English to Japanese or Japanese to English. Interesting that they would still have it available in one or more languages yet remove it from others!
The Japanese course isn't released officially on web yet. Nor have we been given any indication that it will be coming any time soon either. The best we've been told about it is still the vague thing Luis said on the iOS launch day two whole months ago— "Japanese should be available on Web at some point this year"...
Luckily, however, it's been possible to access the Japanese course on web for the last few months via a trick. Of course, it's not exactly designed to be used on web right now and has a few problems (lacks teaching of individual characters), but it is still pretty decent:
Also, because it's not officially released, it's still using the old site code. This is the reason why the Progress Quiz is still available for purchase and it even still works too! ^^
