Finnish app in Duolingo style
Finnish contributors lost hope and made their own web application in Duolingo style:
https://finnlingo.herokuapp.com (choose Test course)
I've only tried the first lesson of the test course, but so far I'm pretty impressed. It feels somehow a little rough round the edges but seems to work fine. A shameless Duolingo clone, but... well, DL refuse to make a Finnish course so it's not as if Finnlingo are competing for users :).
I'm incredibly grateful for that! I already studied Finnish for a month now with various sources, but was still missing the duolingo style.
With some previous knowledge/vocabulary, this course is perfect. For a beginner I'd consider it hard without learning about cases first (e.g. haluta taking partitive or accusative, as a beginner there's no visible pattern in the endings) and with words not being introduced before using them in sentences (e.g. punainen).
Anyway, I love it!!!
I'm also not at facebook but would love to try it! Will there be other options available (email, google-account etc.? ) I think most of us still practise with memrise. I think there are quite a few people who have no facebook account and it shouldn't be a requirement for registrations on projects outside from facebook. Would you let us know when there other registration options available?
Anyway - Thanks for sharing!
