tips and notes
I keep seeing references to tips and notes in the forum, but can't find them anywhere. A search in HELP only brings up "tips on viewing tiny cards". I'm on a laptop using chrome. Finally today I saw where someone posted a link in the forum: https://www.duolingo.com/skill/de/Family-1/tips-and-notes so I know that there really is a tips and notes section, but I still can't find it without a direct link.
Be aware: The German course (web "tips and notes", not mobile grammar notes on the apps!!) behaves differently than the newer staff French trees 8+12!
French tree2+3 T&N are also not available on the mobile apps!
What French tree are you on?
For French you can view the updated T&N which Sitesurf has exclusively published on the discussion forums here: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/29385314$comment_id=30276539
I just looked at your German tree. (I can't see your French tree because this link: https://www.duome.eu/samsplace/progress only shows the tree you were last working on.) Almost every skill on this tree includes a Tip section. Just click on the light bulb to get the Tips for that skill.
You can also get to them if you use a browser and not an app.
If I remember correctly, Duolingo is working on a way to incorporate Tips into their apps. I think it's live on one tree, probably as an A/B test. So if you just wait....
And wait a little longer....
It might be better to use your browser on a computer.
If you click on the lesson you want to work on, look for a light bulb icon in the upper right, instead of hitting start. If there isn't a light bulb icon, then there aren't tips & notes for that particular subject (or language, possibly). You might be able to access them through duome.eu, too (but I'm not sure).
