I've received the new design. Here's a suggestion.

So in timed practices, that bar on top with the twenty segments, can you keep that there? I liked that, not sure, it was just nice to see how much there really was to go. I like it.

Thanks for the suggestion! Is there anything you like or are your feelings towards the new lesson design about the same?

I like the change up. It seems fresh.

I think it could look better with a bigger text box and bigger accent-letter circles. It seems a lot different than the rest of the website, but that doesn't seem to be much of a problem.

Also, I like to be able to see the top blue bar during lessons.

And maybe put the font of the "you got the answer correct" or "wrong" box in the bottom left after a submitted answer back to what it was. It's a bit hard to read this new way.

Hi, I don't know if this is the right place to put comments, but here goes. In general the website font size is small for me. I sit beside my computer with a magnifying glass to try to read suggested translations. That works somewhat OK, but accent marks and Vietnamese tone markings are very difficult to see. Printing suggested translations in dark blue on a light blue background (same for brown, etc) is problematic for me. My workaround has been to copy and paste these translations into a word processing document in order to see the words in a larger font size with black writing on a white background. Recently Duolingo started blocking that maneuver, and I think that just creates problems for people with impaired vision.

I didn't. Is there a place where I can see the new design to see what it looks like?
