On other language courses on Duolingo, we are given vocabulary in advance of being asked questions about it. For example, in Spanish, we are shown a picture of a house with the word "la casa", Then, later, we will be asked to recognize and use that word.
In this Arabic course I am asked to translate into English things like "new house", without first having been introduced to the meaning of any Arabic words in the course.
Is this the intended pedagogy? I mean, we select two from five words at random and learn by trial and error? It may be effective, but I just wanted to check if something had gone wrong in the course.
Im having the same problem. Im in description 1 and never saw any pictures or anything relating to any of these words.
Using the android app. I hope they fix this, it's not a good way to learn. Randomly selecting answers with 0 knowledge is just teaching me if im good at guessing.
