4 years on Duolingo!!
My fourth Christmas here ... but Duolingo is going from bad to worse .. when I started here it was so fun to learn English, now Duolingo is not like before ... I hope next year comes with New thing :)
Disculpen el inglés soy colombiano :D
Happy New Year
I wonder how many people would pay 10 USD for any immersion-like feature... People were sharing articles and helping each other. I wish someone would reconsider the immersion feature, in a profitable way. I'm looking at a children's hospital ad. Next I will be looking at an ASPCA ad. IF I play the game for 1 minute I will be hooked, guau. ... brb.

There have been a lot of changes in 2017, some of them very difficult. However, let's not forget that there are also some exciting changes happening on Duolingo, such as the stories and the Spanish podcast in the Labs. I hope this continues to expand to include more languages, like English! Soon we may have skill levels for our trees too, adding a new dimension and challenge. These changes leave me feeling optimistic.
Change is hard. But I'm still having a blast from the community of Duolingo. I can tell that a lot of really hard work still goes into it. It's not perfect but what is? I mean you cant have ice cream everyday. It's been 4 years maybe its just time for you to go to the next level. You are at level 25 in two languages.
No sé, pero discrepo contigo en que Duolingo está cada vez peor. Lo que sí puedo compartir es el tema de inmersión, que era una excelente herramienta, y también lo del activity stream o como se llame. Quizás un poco más de interacción entre usuarios no vendría mal, pero no diría que Duolingo está en decadencia.
De hecho, han sacado cursos nuevos, hay árboles que se han renovado, tienen podcast en español, agregaron stories en alemán y francés y también incluirán algo llamado Skill levels, lo cual me tiene bastante entusiasmado. A mí me sigue gustando Duolingo y no lo veo como una red social, de hecho, me encanta que no lo sea, pero por lo menos ver cuando un usuario sube de nivel, o que aprendió X unidad en X idioma también sería mejor.
Apoyo Duolingo 100%. Mal que mal, es gratis y es una excelente herramienta.
I still remember your user name from times when discussions on the forum were vibrant and stimulating ...
But to be fair, Duolingo has made some good and some bad developments: The best new feature are certainly the stories, not to mention that we finally have Japanese after all these years. The mobile version with gems and severe punishment for mistakes is surely the worst development.
Still, I hope we us here for the 5 year aniversary :D
I have also been here 4 years and seen some things go e.g. hearts that I was glad to see the back of, and some I was sorry...Yes, immersion. But let's not forget Immersion was only for the original courses: Spanish, French, Italian and German.
We have seen so many new languages added we should be happy. We have Labs with charming and instructive stories. I'm thrilled with the French.
And now with the introduction of the new Levels you have options on how much you want to do on each skill and most important every language can be taken to a much higher level. Far above what we have even at level 25 now.
There is no doubt that Duolingo has made some questionable decisions, but I think we often allow the negatives to overshadow the good. I'm not at all happy that Immersion was removed, but I do love how Stories are in French now. I'm glad a Stories feature exists in the first place. There is good in almost anything. ^ ^
Keep on with your studies and I hope you're here for a fifth Christmas!
Look at your flags. Most of them didn't exist when this user started his streak. Can't you remember when Duolingo started off? There were only a few languages, most of them European. The number of languages available here has increased at an incredible rate. Most courses are developing and adding content every day.
Wait, sorry, I'm a tad confused. Did you just argue with yourself? Or did you quote someone else and then prove them wrong? I haven't really gotten good sleep in the past several days so I might just not be processing information properly but it kind of looks like you debated yourself.
