Chinese course progress
Have you noticed that the course progress is jumping back!?
Going from 40% to 38% to 37% and now to 34%
How are they going to get it done in 8 days?
11/16/17 is the course's page estimate https://www.duolingo.com/course/zh-CN/en/Learn-Chinese-Online
The % complete seems to be low for all the courses using the new exercise type.
None of them reach near 100% before entering beta. I doubt any will hit 100% before completing beta either.
I guess that whatever data they are adding to the course, in order to support the new exercise time, are not showing as complete. Even though in reality, the data is as complete as it will ever be.
Some people have said it below, but as they add vocabulary, and more importantly, as they make corrections to the content, the % complete will fluctuate up and down. Have faith that the course designers are making improvements, based on recommendations and feedback from the alpha testers. The goal is to debut a course that is ready for everyone to learn the language from, and minimizes the frustrating "But Dr. and Doctor mean the same thing! Why was I marked 'incorrect'?!" type of errors.
