Showing course's vocabulary and faster browsing for words - a working workaround!

TIL - how to browse course's vocabulary, even if the "words" section is not available in that course.

Just google " * site:https://www.duolingo.com/dictionary/Japanese/" and replace the "*" with the word you are looking for and "Japanese" with any language you want ^.^

Be careful to not enter the "", as it will give you errors!

Tested it for both German (which has "words" section) and Japanese (which does not).

Example: (https://i.imgur.com/1tjQj8l.jpg)

It will show you the links to the dictionary section, which also contains grammar, definition/explanation and examples. Enjoy!

@CarlosLM, do you think it could be of use with your lexemes and vocabulary count? The number of found results is shown there, although it probably must be filtered for duplicates and grammar references. (I'm not good enough at programming to do anything useful here...)

Edit: What also works:
Browsing for words in foreign scripts.
Japanese example: とり

Browsing for grammar (for courses in which it's available).
example: German verbs conjugation - machen, essen etc.

The "site:https://www.duolingo.com/dictionary/language word" (leave a space between "language" and "word") structure works as well ;)

Edit2: It works for browsing a certain word in all the languages available on Duo. Google " site:https://www.duolingo.com/dictionary word " and switch *word" with any term you want. As above, remember to remove both the "" or it will show no results! ;)

Yes, it worked for me. Many thanks. Have some lingots.


Thank you very much! :) I wasn't expecting lingots for this post, it's just something that I wanted to share because it may be of help ;D


Thank you for this tip! And I for one am glad you used とり as an example there ;)


Well what can I say, とりはりっぱです!^.^


Are you sure you mean Google? I tried it and got no result/error.


Are you sure you googled the right thing? Maybe try this: "walk site:https://www.duolingo.com/dictionary/Japanese/" without the "" (be careful to remove both of them, or it will show no results).

Ps. When I posted thread I first input xxx as I had to edit the link for Japanese, sorry for the confusion!


Seems to be working for me now, but not effectively in the target language, only for English search terms.

Cool though.


I haven't played with this (indeed, cool!) feature much yet but... Maybe we should not add the final slash after the language, as mentioned here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/23670198$comment_id=23684747


Thank you, I checked it and added it to the post!
