new crown system
changed my mind! i now quite like the new format. I think it makes you do more exercises and work harder! Susan
I can't wait to transfer over to the new system. I did the tree a few times - even maintained a solid gold tree for a while - and then became a bit bored with going over the same stuff. For a time, even doing the minimum to keep my streak going started to feel like a chore. Then the stories came along and reignited my enthusiasm and I'm hoping the crowns system has the same effect.
I thought it was fine the way it was. I'm OK with the new crown system. I just got a level 5 crown on a skill today so now, apparently, it will remain golden. It only took repeating the lesson about 50 times...
It's more flexible. The problem that I've had with learning languages in the past is knowing when to move on. I tended to spend a lot of time on a single lesson and hence make little progress. Both duolingo systems addressed this issue but the new system is giving me more information.
