Anyone else have trouble with Duolingo teaching Chinese?

I find it highly difficult to try and learn Chinese when Duolingo does not teach you what the words mean. It just throws symbols at you and then asks you to write what a phrase means without actually teaching you what the symbols/words mean. Anyone else have this problem??

I started learning Chinese here, but I gave up pretty quickly because of this issue. I'm not really serious about Chinese, so I haven't tried to solve the problem. My next step would have been to go to Memrise to learn the vocabulary and then come back to Duolingo to put sentences together.


The thing i hate the most is when they give you the wrong translation when you mouse over some words its so terrible
