Mistakes of the day
There are days when I do lots of lessons, and I would love to see another tab in duolingo that put all the mistakes in the day from the lesson that I taken so far (the same idea that happens when we finish our lessons).
The idea is to review I learn the words that we didn't know at the beginning of the day.
It is feasible?
Thanks before hand!
I understand what you mean...as you know, there is no such tab yet. I'm sure it would be feasible for a Duolingo staff member to create such a tab, the question is, how many people want the tab? It's possible to go into 'words' and sort the words by strength. That way, you can review all the words which you need to strengthen by clicking on each word and studying each word.
It is very difficult to know how many people would use a possible "review section of the day", without actually doing it, but I think it would be worth a try. I personaly don't use the word section because:
there are lots of words that I know pretty well and appear as if I do not know them (I speak spanish so words that are common or similar with my native language I remember quickly)
there are other words that appears as if I know them but in fact I don't or is very difficult to me to remember them.
*The last thing with the word sections is that it is kind of picking up words in an unorgnanize dictionary, and therefore it is very dificult to learn them.
*The review section I think we can learn more than just words, but also about other mistakes like word order, hearing difficulties. And perhaps (just perhaps haha ) learn more about our behaviours like when we make more mistake. I think the best way to learn about anything is learning from the analysing of our mistakes.
And finally I think Duo staff can learn A LOT analysing the mistakes we make and analysing latter how we learn from them, they sometimes makes studies about lots of thing and one about learning, mistakes and maybe forgetting curve would be great :)
My point is, the tone of the comment sounded kind of rude, and it wasn't really that necessary at all to this discussion.
Hey, buy a good dictionary....
Lots of spelling errors today!
You could have mentioned it in a P. S. and the main part could've been you explaining it to them, but your comment was entirely focused on the OP's mistakes. If someone posted the exact same comment to my post that was entirely about something else, I'd feel discouraged, and I would probably ignore them, but then again, everyone's different.
If this was not your intention then I apologize for making a big fuss over nothing.
I stand by my philosophy! now I know the correct spelling of two words thank you!! I usually use the online oxford dictionary, but I still make some mistakes writing in english and I have grammar issues too (that I hope to improve both issues).
My computer doesn't detect that I am writting in english so it doesn't correct me automatically :B (that would be useful)
At least on the web version you are always given the option to review at the end of the lesson. If you leave all those tabs open on the review and open new tabs for the new lessons you could review all mistakes at the end.
Alternatively, just stop for a second to write down (or screenshot) your mistakes for that lesson before moving on.
I do like the idea of a review all lessons at the end of the day, but don't expect it any time soon.
