Hi AyantuYemane,

Welcome to Duolingo.

Some tips:

You are not expected to get everything right the first time.

  • You are expected to hover over the words, and get hints - and to make mistakes.
  • Gradually, over time, you will remember the words, not need hints, and you'll quit making mistakes.
  • After Duolingo said "wrong answer", mostly (web and Android) there will appear two buttons on the bottom of the screen. Example:
  • Click on "Discuss" and there mostly will open a new window, with the right solution on top of the window and sentence discussions below.

In Duolingo you will find background information in:

  • the grammar "Tips and notes" in the "Desktop mode" of the browser of your phone/tablet/Pc.
    . in the Firefox or Chrome browser of a phone/tablet you can select the "Desktop mode" via the three dots in the upper right corner of the screen.
    . just click on the Skill and scroll to the bottom of the Lessons page.

  • Duolingo Wiki FAQ

Good luck.

Please say DUOLINGO. Welcome but better to use the general forum unless you have "troubles".
