New language/NO writing anymore

before when using Duolingo we used to write in the new language(Turkish) but now we only chose the words or write in english .

the previous way was much better and helps learn faster where words stick to your head .. is there anyway to get this back ?

Use the PC version.

There you can switch between the words bank (choose the words) or writing in the language.

yes correct i could see that on PC version it is a bit different with some writing in turkish - how can i get this version on my mobile cause i have always been using the mobile vesrion before and there was alot of turkish writing .

Do you mean the new "Listen and tap word bricks" exercise challenge style instead of "Listen and type"?

If you are on lower crown levels L0-L2 (L3) on the EN-TUR forward tree, the ratio of typing in English is higher than your target language Turkish.

It always was like that even before crowns and you can usually get around this bad translation ratio if you start the reverse tree (e.g Turkish-English).

actually on the mobile version , there was no listen and speak - i experienced this with the PC version when i realized that there is no writing in turkish anymore so thought the problem was from the mobile version . But there was alot of writing in turkish , that is my issue . now there is almost no writing in turkish , it is more multiple choice .. so doesn't really help alott

I am also experiencing this, with French, and I hate it. It's so easy as to be boring. Doing 50 xp a day without writing is mind-numbing.
