vocabulary tab - please add gender...

I think the vocabulary tab could be improved by also stating the gender of every noun -- right now, I can only see the gender of a noun by clicking on the word first...

Thanks for the suggestion! We've heard this from a few community members. I'm going to bring it back to the team. I know that a lot of people would like to see that too :)


Yes this would be very very helpfull! Learners make the most of the mistakes because of not knowing the gender.


I don't know why that isn't the case already. I'm German and every single natively English speaking person that learns or learnt German has problems with the gender because they did not learn gender and noun but rather the noun alone and then it hits them like a brick when they notice that there is no easy way to recognise the gender.


This would definitely help me! I make gender errors more than any other kind.


Yes ,that would be a good addition .


yes please! It's so hard to forget with Spanish/French too! Would be very helpful to have them, I am new to Spanish and completely mess things up with French.


I agree. I would love to see this addition.


Oh yes, please!!!!


Yeah, this would be great, but even better would be a feature that lets you practice only noun genders. I am learning German, and right now, there's no way to just go over the genders of the nouns you know, you must also slog through everything else. It would be great to have a quiz that just gives you the noun (e.g. Brot, Auto, Frau) and you pick the definite article. I know this format of question does already exist, it'd just be nice to have a quiz that consisted solely of this.


This would be so helpful for me because I really have trouble remembering gender, it would be great to be able to see it when looking through vocabulary :)


This would be very helpful! I think more directed exercises aimed specifically at remembering vocabulary would be great.


I totally agree. Words listed as mastered are not unless I have the gender right.
