I've created a survey for an assignment in my university (RMIT) and I would love it if you could take a few minutes of your time to answer it. I'll even give 2 Lingots to those who answer the survey and reply to this post. (first 30 only because I don't have enough lingots to give more! :D )
All the information used in the survey will only be shared for the purposes of my assignment. (My thanks to the anonymous donors who have given me lingots to help with the survey.)
Done. I rated the time spent on Duo a bit lower than it actually is, because it varies (some days I just do what's necessary for the streak) and I only counted exercise time, not time spend on the discussion boards and I didn't know if you wanted to know the total time or the time spent doing lessons.
And no need to give me lingots. I got enough. :)
I do this on an iPad, so I don't have a mouse and the user interface is much simpler, even when I'm on the site and not the app. But thank you! I did find the help page you were directing me to. (Unfortunately, I can't remember what I was trying to even do on it! It's been a while...)
For those of us who are studying more than one language, the question as to why you are learning a language is a complicated one, since there is often more than one reason for learning languages. For example, Turkish (my husband is Turkish), English for Arabic speakers (to check up on what my students are doing), Japanese (to see how it is being taught on Duolingo and to review a language I haven't used in a long time), Italian (to help my father), Polish (because my mother was born in Poland), and German for Turkish speakers (intellectual challenge to keep my mind active). I'm sure others have equally diverse reasons for learning. Your survey seems to be aimed at people who are learning one language. Nevertheless, I completed your survey.
I am interested in why you have chosen those particular aspects of Duolingo to assess. You haven't actually considered quality of teaching in your questions, and for that reason, your respondents will probably not think about teaching in the last question. There are a number of things that I would like to see improved on Duolingo, but none of them relate to anything you have mentioned in your survey.
Although it is possible to write quite a lot in the last question, I could not easily see what I had written. As a result, I only gave you one suggestion, whereas if I had been able to see a paragraph, I might have given two or three suggestions.
I hope that you will let us know the results of your survey. I think it would be very interesting.
The questions aren't actually aimed at the quality of teaching, they're aimed at the User experience and interfaces, and about who the users are.
I changed the last question so that long answers are easier.
Thanks for completing the survey! :) (I'll release the results on Oct 9th if my schools OK with it)
