I dont like the new league system
Actually the idea itself isnt that bad. But it doesnt help me at all, when I compete with learners of other languages. I learn greek, I dont care about those learning english, spanish or french. So I dont have anyone to talk/write. Was definetely better before
Yes, I agree with you. I find the system THAT bad, though... The new league system makes everything an individual rat race. I find the promotion and, especially, the demotion possibility a rotten idea devised only to make people focus on completing lessons and nothing else. The previous system was also a competition but it was lighter and helpful for the language one was learning as it encouraged you to work and be creative with it.
The competition has as only goal to show you more ads. More ads, more $$$ for Duolingo. But... it is a fantastic program and I learned a lot of Greek this way.
