Upgrading content is great but at the cost of wiping out practically all completed sections?
"Just a comment. Why did they have to wipe out practically all my "completed" sections with their latest upgrade? Very disheartening after something like 9 months of constant, unbroken, practice." In the grand scheme of things this doesn't matter at all but it sure was a clumsy way to "improve" their product.
You will just have to repeat the same old sentences over and over again just like everyone else. Every now and again you will see a new sentence which justifies wiping everything out!
We had to destroy the village in order to save it!
I’m so confused! I was on level 16 in French and now because of the ‘new and improved ‘ version, everything has been erased and I am on level one Basics. What can be done to restore my other levels?.
If some English guy in a TARDIS materializes near where you live, try to hitch a ride!
I have exactly the same feeling! But we have to accept it the way duo provides to us, no other choices.
My plan is to do repeating reviews of all courses at different times to enhance/enforce what I learnt for the language.
I am trying to utilize it in this way: when I have time, I go through ALL purple courses and do testing-out one-by-one, so that all level 1 purples become level 2 blue. This is more like a review of all learnt contents. Right now, I am still in progress of wiping out all purples.
In few months of time, I will do testing-out on all level 2 blue and make them all green. This action of testing-out will be repeated later until all become golden.
I have the same problem with losing all my completed lessons. I'm lost. I practiced specific subjects and was making good progress learning and re-learning where needed. Now that Duo has wiped out all my progress is there going to be some help provided or recommended for those of us in this same situation? Duo may not yet understand what a disruptive thing they have done to daily learners who now have to start over or maybe just leave. Comments are welcome. Thanks
I agree!!!!!!!!!!!.A very clumsy and poorly thought out way of trying to improve the course.
Is that what happened? I had to reinstall the app on my phone a few days ago because my microSD card (where the app was stored) had failed, and I thought I'd lost all my progress because of that.
I sure am glad I didn't waste any lingots "testing out" of skills I'm already comfortable with. I would have been p****d!! But I can't believe they reset all our crown levels back to zero. What a joke!
the question is were you 30 days away from understanding and speaking the language you were learning, i assume it's spanish.. cause i was just a week or something away from turning my entire tree gold, but when i hear someone speak spanish i don't understand any of it, maybe a sporadic word here and there. i'm happy with these updates as they bring new concepts and a broader vocabulary.
in spanish everything i had golden or red is still golden or red.. there's only been a whole lot of new skills added in between which ofcourse are at level 0.. i'm very happy with them cause they bring new concepts that weren't there previously and a broader vocabulary.
