Well, how am i soppused to know it is 'Eight' when the lesson haven't told me?
If there are dots under the word, you can click on it to see it. Well, you need to do that the first time and the lesson tells you. And ling = zero as far as i know.
I speak Chinese to people that don't know any Chinese, and they make funny faces. I think that's very cool.
Does anyone here believe: God is not dead? If you do then please like this, if you do not believe this then don't like
You'll only learn a language by making millions of mistakes. I believed "roger that" meant take your knives out in cs 1.6 because he said it like gilette but here I am speaking English fluently and hopefully chinese too in the next few years
Could be very enjoyable to learn. Too many holes in the teaching method, very frustrating.
You should inform students they will need to download/install the chinese character set to learn properly here. I had no way to type the chinese symbol "ba".... kinda silly!:P
I don't get why we learn "ming, ne, me, etc" sithout getting that asked. So we don't know what that means and they don't ask for the meaning for that or teach it :/
uuugh i don't have a chinese keyboard so when I wrote ba they told me wrong
why won't it accept a pinyin answer? the difference in remembering two english letters like "ba" is easier than remembering the nuances of the volcano shaped thing means 8.
Im leanrning but have no clue what im learning. It doesnt translate into English.
Also i think it's harder to learn if the lesson doesn't say what number is it.
I was seeing the number characters of eight, three, one and seven, but i only knew it till the end, making it harder to learn. Also, the lesson is showing characters that has nothing to do with lesson (or it seems to be) such as Lìng and others. Just a suggestion.
They allow you to hover over the character to learn it. When the character is highlighted orange, that means it is new to you. Also, Li (李) was introduced already in a previous lesson
Yes, if you hover over the character, you'll see the meaning... but only in the very last exercises of the lesson. During most of the lesson you are just learning characters and their pronunciation, not knowing what they mean until the very end. This makes it rather hard to learn them.
It would be good to have the meanings at the very beginning of the lesson.
Just read the tips first? It lists all numbers from 0-10 and explains how to construct larger numbers (at least up to 999).
I agree with Diego. You have to present/teach the numbers before you ask questions about them. Otherwise, it's random useless guessing!
It's kinda hard to know which number is the correct answer since it only tells you a few at the beginning and then it goes on by saying the number 8 and such. But I guess it depends on the person. It makes me curious and really want to learn.
I don't have Chinese characters on my keyboard, and Duolingo didn't accept pinyin spelling. I think this is an error.
At the bottom center of the screen there are a few symbols listed that will allow you to answer the question using Chinese symbols.
I am so glad JeanneNo said "Thank you! " A lot of People seem to not be thankjful
This is a helpful app and all bit it would be great if it told me outright what the characters meant instead of just making me hover over them, it doesn't really seem to be helpful to just give a character and expect me to know it
when using keyboard input，八 is written without the small horizontal line at the top - is this a variant?
My computer isn't able to write characters, so I have to go to a translator to copy and paste words, even if I already know them.
