Hi Duolingo Team, I have noticed that you have changed up the multiple choice answers and made them a lot more difficult. I really have to take the time to see where the teeny differences are, whether it's la bougie or le bougie. It is keeping me on my toes and I really like the change as you know, the devil is in the details. This is helping me learn. Thank you.

I've noticed it too and love it!

It's a lot better than just picking the one without the weird words that make no sense at all. Sometimes in timed practice, I didn't even read the question or solutions, those jumbled up sentences were so irritating that I wouldn't have learned anything anyways - not anymore and that's good!

Exactly! The timed practices where I would just look at the last word and usually it was pretty easy to pick the right one, but not really learning anything.

I like it too.


But now your Userstyle lesson script does not work anymore, as the white translation box is again under the text....so maybe again class auto-generator changes?
Or am I dreaming (using on my 2nd PC just the generated user script, not the style; will re-test on my 1st PC)???

Hmm, it shows up correctly for me... Can you make a screenshot of it, so I know how it looks for you?

Je suis d'accord !

I'd noticed that too, and I like it a lot. Having to click that "solution" = "solution" was not much of a learning aid, but the new exercises really do make you pay attention and learn better!

I think I noticed it for Portuguese.
I like it too.


But where has "alternative answer solution (the once from the sentence discussion" gone to?

It was shortly there for my EN-PT Portuguese tree, as I explained it in another thread.

I do not like to read sentences with tiny mistakes in. It makes me echo them in my mind and make mistakes further down the line.
