New Duolingo Feature
Hi! I think it would be great if Duolingo could provide a fun language game to keep us motivated. What do you think? Also, using coins to play games and stuff?
This is what Luis von Ahn (co-founder) said about the API 7 months ago:
That sounds good. Also if it were possible to be able to print out the names of items both in the language you are learning and the mother tongue, you would be able to place them on particular object for example the name of a table, chair etc. what I mean printable flashcards!
I've been meaning to get duolingo masterminds and these brilliant (free) flashcard developers together: http://insidestoryflashcards.com/printable_flashcards/index.php. I've already been assigning the flashcards as translation homework to my students, and then we'd have a place to upload the translations! Duolingo is a fantastic program for learning the mechanics of language in a fun way, but it's a little sparse on vocabulary expanding options. More matching games with great visuals would be a perfect development! THANK YOU!!!!
Yes! Exactly! Could you do me a favor? Can you tell all your friends on Duolingo this link? I want everyone involved so I can make this happen! I already asked the Duolingo Staff and they said for me to start this discussion so they will know what other Duolingo users think. Thanks!
I love Duolingo. I've been telling language teacher I know about it. I was wondering if there is any way to create groups among "my friends?" I am enrolling students in my Spanish class, and I would like to group them by class if possible. I am going to check in with them every 2 weeks to see their progress, asking them to get a certain number of points per week. My students didn't want to leave the lab because they were having so much fun with Duolingo. Thank you for such a great website & app.
