8 new skills have tips and notes now as of today!

Thank you so much to all the contributors who have been writing them! I'm not sure if it's just one out of the three of you, but it is hugely appreciated!

Just in case you don't know, these are the skills with new released tips and notes as of today:

  1. Hobbies
  2. Travel
  3. Feelings 2
  4. Countries
  5. Pets 2
  6. Body 2
  7. Days
  8. Family 2

Only 7 skills left out of 34 until every skill has some tips and notes! Is it possible we could get all 34 skills with tips and notes by the end of the weekend? :D Can't wait to find out! :-)

Mòran taing to all of you who are still working on the course! :D

8 now - and it's still 21 December, 2019! Only 7 skills left without tips and notes! But it might be useful to add to the tips and notes in Clothes/Pet/Weather about when to use ag vs. a' is used in verb nouns:

According to wikitionary: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/ag#Etymology_6

  • "Ag" is the form used before a vowel. Before consonants it contracts to a'. The sole exception is ag ràdh (“saying”).

Would have saved me a hunt on the answer if it was in the notes, but no worries, I found out anyway! :D

See: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/35675856 :-)


That’s a good idea! I’ll add that in!
