Gender and capitalization
I miss the correction when I don't capitalize nouns. This appears to have been an "improvement" made several months ago and I consider it a step backward.
Also, particularly in early lessons, why only ask for the noun without its companion definite article, e.g. "Wasser" or "Brot" instead of "das Wasser" or "das Brot"? I get that it's more accessible for speakers of non-gendered languages (English) but it's a fundamental concept and so much is dependent on knowing noun gender I feel it is a disservice to the student not to introduce it at the very beginning.
From my personal experience, it also works remarkably well, you simply get a feeling for the articles if they are learned from the start. Trying to memorize it later is futile and a waste of time. This is why I use a third party application to learn the nouns first.
BTW does anyone know when DL would actually implement the option for more English -> German? I thought there was a talk about some skills level? Thanks.
