Course updates and new content for advanced learners
I have been using Duolingo for more than a year now, and I absolutely love it. I was wondering if there are plans on the horizon to add new content/vocab/complexity for people that have increasing levels of fluency? I have finished both the Spanish course for English Speakers and el curso de inglés para hablantes de español, and I am running out of new things to learn.
It would be so great if this was possible. For now, the stories and podcasts help tremendously, but it doesn't work as efficiently to teach vocab and grammar as does the repetitive exercise that is offered by skill strengthening.
I heard that there were plans from the Duo team to add more immersion/advanced skills to the already existing ones for the benefit of advanced learners. That was to happen at the beginning of this year (at least according to the post i saw here, which i can't locate now). I would really love it if that was to happen. Let's hope that that is the case.
Yes if your showing around 60 /63 leaves on your Spanish from English tree it should soon be updated. The new one has 108 + the three you can buy. A number of people volunteered and were selected (including someone I know) to go through the new content to share feedback and report any issues related to correct answers that are not accepted, unnatural sentences, etc. Hopefully it will soon be rolled out to us all.
Also the app is being updated to show strengths from 1 to 3 on each leaf.
You're going to like this new feature. It takes you to a higher level and uses repetitions to embed the language into your memory. https://www.duolingo.com/comment/25615588/Upcoming-Feature-Skill-Levels
That looks fantastic! I can't wait for it to be made available!
Have you checked www.languagecourse.net vocabulary trainer VT for 10.000 words?
I found an audio listening course on Memrise and 5000 top up #1-#9 courses.
See my profile for concrete links: https://www.memrise.com/user/Thomas.Heiss/courses/learning/
Further 10-15.000 sentence courses are available as AnkiSRS shared decks!!
I would suggest using Lingvist for vocabulary practice - good for intermediate+ :)
Just curious. Why did you take English for Spanish speakers as well? Did it help with your Spanish retention?
Hi. Yes it helped tremendously, because there are a lot of new phrases and vocab not covered in the Spanish for English speakers course. I strongly recommend that you do this course as well if you finished Spanish for English speakers :) Good luck!
