Duolingo presents simple sentences with audio and a translation. The vocabulary words are in the Dictionary under "MORE" accompanied by other model sentences. The forum is available to sort out difficulties, if necessary, but if the student moves on to the next sentence and continues with the lessons, the "difficulties" become clear and the "simple sentences" are recognized as such. There really are no severe problems with this method of teaching.
For an excellent traditional method for learning Arabic grammar, which is very interesting, please see this video series by Muttaqi who begins with sarf/morphology (how all Arabic words (nouns, verbs) derive from 3 and 4 letter roots. Suggestion: some patience to watch (and take notes!) until after the 2nd video, because the teaching really takes off and is a complete pleasure to know and learn.
Arabic grammar consists of two main fields:
Nahu/nahw النَّحْو or syntax is “the arrangement of words and phrases to create well-formed sentences in a language.”
Sarf الصَّرْف or word morphology is “the study of the forms of words.”
[There are many similar video series on Youtube, but I began with Muttaqi and appreciate his teaching. Good luck to all!]

"Duo is fast and smart." Translation:دُوو سَريع وَذَكِيّ.
(4) Duo's method forces learners to pay attention: to read the word letter by letter, to sound it out, to listen, to think AND when wrong one is forced to try harder.
Research shows better results from "interested" learning in excited, emotional states rather than calm
