A couple things.

Hola, I have just a few things to say.

First off, the mobile forum on iOS is really laggy. Of course there is the mobile APP, but on the forum it lags and you can't type even slowly or it will freeze for 10 seconds...


Second off and most importantly, I haven't been able to learn ANY new lessons in Spanish for atleast two weeks.

WHY?

Because my old lessons keep going weak EVERYDAY. I practice each of them each day and they go off, even the ones I completely understand. I have about 5 of these and its extremely annoying! All of them I completely understand! And the ones I don't, like Sizes and Phrases, they NEVER EVER show up. I know I can strengthen them but weak skills should be based on time since last practiced and not some algorithm..


<pre> Third, I think Duolingo should explain things. When teaching verbs, they should show the conjugations and not slowly hint at it over time. Just make some cute cartoon with Duo at the beginning of the lesson.. </pre>

I really really hate when the same ones keep going weak and they're the words I've known forever! Also irregular verbs that they don't explain at the beginning! I love your ideas.

I had that for quite a while too, several weeks, but eventually, it stopped doing it. Now I get a couple going weak every few days. Try doing 2 reviews and 2 new lessons a day or something along those lines.. Just try to live with things not all being golden for a few days, so you can do some forward momentum. Eventually, it should balance out.

Juliestarling, I did exactly what you did and it evened out for me also.

That sounds like a bug. I've never had anything not be golden. I even stopped doing any French, and it took like two weeks for the first thing to decay.

I for one really appreciate that Duolingo doesn't give the verb conjugations in a lump. If I learn the verb conjugation from a chart, every time I need to conjugate a verb I mentally pull up the chart. Learning them "on the fly" means that I learn each conjugation as a separate thing, not part of a set that I have to run through to get to the right one.

If you want the conjugation charts, they are all over the web.

Bite size chunks are the way forward perhaps
