Reference for "Tips and Notes" in all Duo Languages

I just discovered https://duome.eu/tips/en/ thanks to liamstudiess, who was kind enough to post it in response to a question on the Korean Forum. There are Duo notes available for 34 languages.

July 1, 2019



There are Duo notes available for 34 languages.

Yes, the classic old html formatted "tips and notes", made available on the web pages - including French tree3 contributor notes.

All the "mobile grammar notes" (=tips by staff, new layout/format mainly for mobile apps created, also ported over to the web) on the new CEFR trees (Spanish, French, EN from ES/PT) however are not available as a summary and cannot currently be accessed through our "extended user profiles" (Incubator skill "explanation" variable) and Duome!

    The Italian and German courses now have the new style of tips on the mobile apps as well. It should be emphasized that for those two courses you can only see the new style of tips on the mobile apps; if you go to the same skills on the website you will see the old style of tips & notes. Not all of the skills have them yet, but they are adding them over time. I hope that that content can be added to Duome eventually.

    Thanks for pointing this out.

    Duome has a new beta feature since July 2019 http://www.duome.eu/blog where you can access the new tips as well (skill list) here: https://www.duome.eu/notes/

    Obviously this already works for German and Italian trees.

    Side note:
    The new (CEFR) mobile grammar notes for the updated English from Portuguese course (108 skills) - which new tips you can access on the web with the lightbulb botton - have not been uploaded yet.


    I didn't know you could access the "old" notes on one page like this - it's perfect! And I like the old format of "Tips and Notes" more than the new one.

    I've been learning Swedish for almost a year and recently started the new CEFR-aligned Spanish tree to dust off my Spanish so that allowed me to compare the two.

    It may just be me as I'm not really a "visual" type of person when it comes to learning language skills. Tinycards / flashcards concept also doesn't work very well for me. At least for the Spanish tree, the new "Tips" contain too many pictures cluttering the actual information (again, it's my personal view). For Swedish, there's a often very concise block of information with neat formatting / tables, etc. But I like the voice examples in the new Spanish tips.


    I am a fan of duome, and this is also one of the reasons.
    Thank you duome.
    Also, thank you Thomas.Heiss for the quality of the depth and breadth you take language discussions to.
    I also know I am not the only one that appreciates the intellectual quality you add to discussions.

    You're not alone!


    Thanks for posting this, I try to point these out every chance I get. Because I've noticed from many of the Discussions that people in general don't realize that these notes exists. But that might be because many people only use the phone app.


    I mostly use the app on my phone and these notes are on here. When you click on the section (the same way you would to open a lesson) instead of clicking on start you tap on the lightbulb in the top right corner. This will open up the tips for that section.


    I have an Android Samsung Note 5, it maybe too old, or I may be one of the users who cant see notes on the phone app.


    Good to know. Thank you
