Hello, I recently started learning Polish and Vietnamese - exclusively using the Android app, and to my disappointment there are no tips (unlike in Chinese or Spanish for instance).

I decided today to use the web version and to my great surprise discovered... that there are tips in these two languages!

Why on earth are they not present in the Android app? Technically if they are there for Chinese or Spanish, it should not be a problem to have them in the other languages either.

Thanks for either correcting the issue or letting me know why this is so. Bruno

It's Spanish and Chinese that are the exceptions here, not Vietnamese or Polish. Supposedly French was supposed to have them, too, but I've never seen them.

I think it's a far bigger task than you imagine to bring Tips and Notes to the app. What's on the web can't just be copied over. I hope they'll be rolled out to additional languages, but who knows how long it will take.

Tips are not exactly robust on the computer version of Vietnamese. The "tip" for the Passive lesson is this: "Two forms of passive." For Prepositions 2: " dùng kết hợp với "ở". And my personal favorite for Verbs 3: "dành >< giành"

Dành vs giành is quite confusing even for natives because of the similarity in both pronunciation and meaning
