What is the point... ?
Can anyone tell me now what is the point of a 'test out' button when there are now only 2 or 4 lessons to complete to level up?
I am very sad that lessons have been so dramatically reduced. I think this update has been very poorly thought out.
Before, people had the option to take the test to level up to get their gold disc, while the rest of us could still choose to complete the more challenging lessons.
We have now been denied that choice and instead have been given a dumbed down practise button.
After two weeks of having the reduced lessons I have also yet to get a cracked disc.
When will that happen? Is this what they mean by spaced learning? And how will those discs be selected? At random? Surely I am the one that knows best what I need to learn and practise.
I, for one, feel completely demotivated now.
I think he's venting his frustration with the loss of lessons, it take almost as much time to test out as to do the 4 lesson. You now lose lots of positive reinforcement I feel his pain and think the same way. It is about the loss lessons not testing out. Help us slow ones, SAVE TURTLES!
Been a week since I first made my post about this drastic reduction: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/34468432
There are now three other similar posts and Duo still hasn't done anything to rectify the problem. Apparently duo did repond on another post but I'm not holding my breath. We still need to let them know how unhappy we are or I believe we are stuck with this awful dumbing down
I started a petition to go back to the old way. Some android users have reported that their lessons have been restored but not for iPhone. Please visit this link to sign.
