Latin graduated from beta
Thanks and good luck! :)
I'm actually not too proud of my French level 25, since I'm not as far down my tree as I'd like to be. I took French for several years at school (and my reading comprehension is still pretty good), and am a bit frustrated by the duolingo course because it is fairly picky even in the English translations and because it has enough repetition to not feel challenging and enough expressions different from the ones I learned to be frustrating. Add Spanish messing with my French and the frustration is complete. A fair amount of those XP were earned with practice in order to not forget everything. :/
There already is one for all the skills except three at the end, if you're on web.
The only practical difference between Phase 2 and Phase 3 is that you know the course has now been below the target report rate for a couple weeks with no relapses, and that the team can now start a new tree version without special help from staff. There's no difference in functionality.
Duolingo courses are developed in three phases. Phase 1 is when the course is built for the first time. When it's ready, it's released into Beta (Phase 2). Any new course has a lot of errors because the contributors are human (mostly missing accepted translations), so the course stays in Beta for a while. Once the report rate has been below a certain target for long enough, the course graduates into Phase 3, which means everyone can know the course has got the report rate down (indicating that there are far fewer missing translations) and that the contributor team can now begin work on a new tree version as soon as they're ready.
Great stuff! I have finished the course and even gone on to start reading Lingua Latina per se Illustrata because of how interesting I found the language, so I am hoping there will be further content at some point soon! Big thanks to the course contributors for a good and fun course!
