Is the "hearts system" being phased in on the website? [Solved: No.]
This a.m. it seems that one of my courses has the "hearts system" available for new lessons and the older "non-hearts" system for completed lessons. This may have been so for some weeks but I did not notice. Looking around at other courses, there seem to be two other variants. Altogether:
- a current incomplete course (English for Spanish speakers), in which completed lessons function in the non-hearts way but new lessons have the hearts;
- an older incomplete course (Russian for English speakers), which looks to be only non-hearts functioning;
- a completely new course (Swedish for English speakers), which also looks to be only non-hearts functioning.
To use the "hearts" system again, I'd have to completely revamp my method for using Duo, which would not be fun, and I sure hope it's not the wave of the future! Has anyone else noticed something like this?
It's my bad, thank goodness. I was being invited to test out (exonerarse rather than reforzar) the newer lessons, which I did not notice, and testing out must use the old hearts system and present a slightly different screen format, which is what I noticed.
Hooray! for (pretty much) "heartless" Duo! :) My apologies to anyone I alarmed.
Fortunately it's okay, and just my mistake--see my addendum to the OP.
Yes, I was thinking the same thing ("I'd quit Duoingo altogether . . . "). I did the French tree (first one for me) w/ the heart system. It didn't bother me too much then, but the way it works now is so much better. Duo the old way would take a huge readjustment.
It was my mistake, only. See the addition to my orig. post. It's funny. I didn't mind the stars too much when that was all that was on the website. But when they seemed to have returned, I sure didn't want to go back to them. What Duo does now is so much more effective.
