Tree 3.0: Changes & Vocabulary
The third iteration of our tree has finally been released from A/B test limbo, and is now being rolled out to all users. Since it's been beta tested for half a year, it's already quite stable, but please help us out by reporting any missing translations.
We're very happy to be able to share this new tree with each and every one of you, and hope you'll find it equally instructive and enjoyable. :)
In this thread, I'll share our internal vocabulary list for 3.0 with you, which may not be complete, as we're sometimes more enthusiastic than we're organised. Nevertheless, it should make a good starting point for anyone looking to start a flashcard deck for the new words.
New skills - partially filled with old words
- Compounds (read the tips & notes!)
- Skills have been moved to make the tree flow better.
- Words have been moved so that there'd be no more than 7 of them per lesson.
- Words have been moved so that it'd be easier to make sentences with them.
As always, suggestions and constructive criticism are more than welcome.
We'll take a breather now, but a Tree 4.0 is certainly not out of the question. :)
The Incubator word count is 3428.
That number represents the number of "lexemes", or word stems if you will. Each lexeme can have numerous forms tied to it. The lexeme count also won't count most of the compound words, as we create many of those by gluing together already learned words.
So, it's a flawed number, but there you have it. :)
Thank you so much to the Norwegian Team for assembling a third tree! After taking the Swedish course, which I thought was masterfully put together, the Norwegian tree has blown me away with how well constructed it is, and it amazes me that the team has continued its efforts to improve it.
Thanks to all for your work... I like Duolingo very much. In particular, thanks to the kind woman that recorded all the words and sentences for this norwegian course.
(Grazie a tutti per il vostro lavoro, Mi piace tanto Duolingo e, in particolare, colgo l'occasione per ringraziare la gentile signora che ha registrato le parole e le frasi del corso di norvegese.)
Thank you so much! At first I was annoyed because I had to complete a few subjects in the language tree again - of course I have to refresh the lessons all the time anyway... Thanks again for always working on the best language course on the net, it really works! (Any progress with a Finnish course hint,hint?)
I've been waiting for this moment for so long I nearly lost my streak. But this is so worth the wait. Great work, team Bokmal. I'm interested in the formats other European languages have introduced, including conversations and recorded/marked playback. Anything stirring there?
Tusen takk for denne kursen!! I started the Norwegian course in april, and got about two thirds done by august before travelling to Norway for a few weeks. I understand virtually everything that is written down. I tried to speak on many occasions and had some very cool conversations. Basic conversations of course, but conversations none-the-less! I live Duolingo and I love the Norwegian tree. Dere er de beste :)!
I've been enjoying the new tree, but I've noticed that sometimes it will show me having, say, 1/4 modules in a topic, so I start the second module, and when I'm finished that module, the whole topic is gold again.
I'm not overly anxious about it or anything, but I enjoy doing this stuff and I'm always a little bit sad when it tells me I'm done before I expected.
I'm trying to finish the tree at the moment and am coming across a lot of words in sentences which the computer thinks I've seen before but I haven't. If I've been moved to the new tree this would explain it, but the tree looks just the same? I mean the skills I've finished aren't showing uncompleted lessons which I've found the case in other trees that have been updated. Has everyone been shifted to 3.0 yet?
