App vs Website Question
Very new to duolingo so apologies for the basic question. I have googled a lot and checked the official FAQ and unofficial wiki etc but still can't work this out...
Bit confused about the difference in the app vs the website. On the website each skill seems to be divided up by levels, but on the website it's divided up by lessons? I've noticed that the website will say I've completed a skill when I haven't completed all the levels on the app. Why is this?
I've currently only been doing duo on the mobile app, am I missing anything by not doing the lessons on the computer?
As the desktop says I've finished the skills, should I move on to the next skill before maxing out the level on the app? The skills take a long time to complete to level 5!
It’s supposed to be designed so casual learners can get an overview of all material while the more serious students can drill into the material. The app is undergoing an A/B test, so half of the users have the test and the other half don’t. If the tests get mostly positive feedback, it will be fully implemented for everyone.
Hi William! Here is the post by karint about the new features on the app you are experiencing with: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/25615588/Upcoming-Feature-Skill-Levels
When did you get this version of the app? Many users are anxiously waiting for it!!
Hey, I don't have the app, I use the computer only. The language is divided by categories, which are divided by lessons. Once you complete all the lessons, you get the category finished and receive lingots. I assume you probably already know this. It is pretty hard to advance on the levels. I am supposedly 46% fluent in my German (which is pretty false!) and only on level 9. I think the app and computer are not synced. Maybe you should keep working on either, and see what happens. As I said, I don't use the apps, so I'm not sure how it works. Good luck
