The new crowns leveling is messing with how I learn.

I don't like the crown leveling, it totally undermines the whole lessons that need strengthening and Is making it difficult for me. I would ask that you please revert beck to the previous platform, as it is much easier to work with. I would hate to give up on my education.

I agree. This new system makes it impossible for me to identify and work on individual skills that I need to strengthen, including the strengthening of specific vocabulary. I find the new system useless as a learning tool. I have loved using Duolingo, but I have cut back to minimal use. In the meantime, I'll stick to learning from textbooks.

However, I will point out that there still is text for the lessons. To access it, hover your cursor over the lesson to make a dialog box appear. Then click on the little light bulb icon that appears on the right side of the dialog box.

No text for the lessons, no test out, not fixing anything that was broken before. In exchange for more flashy colors, and an over complicated system? Gamification sucks when they take it to the unusable extremes.

IMO Duolingo needs more flexibility, not even more rigidity.

yes! more flexibility, no more rigid!

It is just a more in-depth analysis of the new Crowns system and the reasons why it would be great if they brought back some of the good old features.

Thank you.
