New Words Update! (Extra)

I previously made a post about the new features available on the new words update but I wanted to post some pictures to show what it looks like to the people that do not have it :)

Once you click on the bar for the word, this shows on the right hand corner Imgur

Once you click on 'more details', this box pops up Imgur

If the word you selected was a verb, you can scroll down on the box to see the conjugations of it Imgur

All in all, I absolutely love this new feature! :) Thank you Duolingo!

Fabulous! And for nouns you see the gender. Wonderful new feature. Thank you, Duolingo.

When can we use this?

November 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/heathermagoo

I'm able to use the word feature for German and Spanish. But not for Irish, which is still in beta.

I'm Speechless. After All the complaints about the missing Vocab - This an absolutely fantastic Improvement. (Over both Words and The Old Vocab!)

You get a Lingot for your lovely clear post, but really The team deserve one too! :)

The only thing missing is having the ability to Strengthen, that one word, BUT this is Good thing.... You have to return to the unit it was in and practise there. Meaning that at the same time you possibly get to strengthen lots of similar words!

The Old Vocab could be a bit of 'Cheat' with a few sentences to do, - An easy way to keep your streak going!!

It's really great that they're paying attention to the community's feedback and restoring the old features that many of us have missed since their removal in January. Now newer users or those that never looked at the vocabulary tab before can see why those of us that used it were so upset by its disappearance. This is even a significant improvement over the old version's presentation method. Also, I agree with you about the individual word practice - it was always a bit goofy in that it's not much of a practice if you know the word you're about to be presented. Really the only thing it was good for was to update a word that, due to bugs with the word strength / decay system, may not have otherwise come up in the course of normal practices.

Kudos to the Duo devs!

I was speechless too! I love the speech and conjugation feature :)

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/maddyis7

It's super to have all the conjugations, isn't it?. I'm sure it'll come in handy during some of the latter tenses, especially. :)

I hope this Post gets into the 'Popular' pages, so lots get to see it

July 26, 2014

It is very super!

Thanks for that I am learning Portuguese, when the box appears with the word in when I click on more details it is greyed out.

How do I view this info?

July 27, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Kgm_7

Do you have the words tab?

July 27, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Ben1323

No

I think that everyone should have the "Words" tab. Because I'm one of those who don't have it, and it looks really really useful. Also, I've been waiting for a while for Duolingo to re-add the vocabulary section after they redesigned the entire site. :/

July 27, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Kgm_7

I think this is just as good as the vocabulary section! :)

July 27, 2014

I just noticed that, so thanks! :) Awesome feature, thanks for posting about it.

July 26, 2014

You're welcome

July 26, 2014

Thanks! I was curious to see that words tab everyone was talking about, it looks amazingly useful.

July 26, 2014

For verbs do they have conjugation tables for other tenses at the top next to indicative in your case for sappiamo? ex: in French parler: Present tense: Je parles tu parles il/elle/on parle, etc. And then next to that you click on imparfait. Imparfait: Je parlais, tu parlais, il/elle/on parlait, nous parlions... Single word future tense: Je parlerai, tu parleras, il/elle/on parlera Conditional: Je parlerais, tu parlerais, il/elle/on parlerait So basically what I'm asking is there a button to click so you can see every tense for a certain verb?

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/fantomitzah

As far as I noticed (comparing two of my trees), you only see the tenses you learned until that moment.
So if you just did the Present skill, you only see that, but when you finish the tree you see all the tenses. Yes, you have buttons to switch between the tenses of the indicative/subjunctive/other tenses (infinitive, participle).

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Kgm_7

It only shows you up to what you have done. The slight problem is, I clicked on sappiamo (meaning 'We know'), and the conjugation table has all the conjugations, but it doesn't show the infinitive (which is 'to know'-sapere).

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/DavidDiano

The new feature is very nice. Quite excellent. But I REALLY like/miss/want to be able to sort the word list by Skill as well. I've been maintaining a notebook of words I've learned, organized by Skill, to help me track my progress and study/review in the order I learned, and the lessons were taught.

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Kgm_7

I think you can still carry on doing that by clicking on the skill and writing down the words you see in each lesson :)

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/DavidDiano

Not all the skills pages list all the words for each lesson. They have most, but if it's more than 4 lines of words, they just put a comma to indicate more words for a lesson.

July 27, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/_pinkodoug_

The text is there, it's just hidden behind the button to begin that particular lesson. You can highlight all of the words and copy & and paste it into a document or text file and do whatever you want with it.

July 27, 2014

It worked ! Thanks.

That's interesting! I've got the first screen, but when I ask for more details the screen just goes dark and nothing happens.(Just discovered this works fine on a Mac, but not on my iPad) I've still got the flashcards, which others have lost, so maybe the are subgroups in the original test group?

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Kgm_7

I was operating it from my Macbook so it should work for you too! :) I use Safari

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/bibliobibulous

Aaahhh, I'm so excited! This is amazing. Why, what with the Incubator bustling, the "review lesson" feature, the beautiful, if not so new, design, and now this FABULOUS and SPECTACULAR feature -- well in my opinion, Duo is greater than ever now!!

Thanks for the thorough post and photos Kgm7, so here are a few lingots for you :) ~~ still, I wish the team would make an official post so we could officially shower them with lingots!!

July 27, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Kgm_7

I agree, it's a wonderful addition to the Duo site! :) Thank you for the lingots! :)

July 27, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Thijmen98

what do you mean, I don't understand what how you can do that. Can you explain that again to me?

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Kgm_7

Go to the words tab, on the right hand side of 'Home'-> click on one of the word bars, not the actual writing but the bar-> then it should come up

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/killary45

Some of us do not have the Words tab.

I think that it is great that Duo is running a trial with some people have different features, but it is a little irritating when people come on telling us how great it is.

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Kgm_7

They tested flashcards on me too, but now it got removed and its back to Strengthen Skills

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/killary45

Do you think that it would be a good idea if they let us know about the trials that are running? I would be interested to know what percentage are given the test features and for how long. Perhaps they could give this sort of information on the official Duolingo blog - or as a "sticky" on top of the discussions board.

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/lindaljc

Good idea! Also, I've only found out about some things like flashcards through these discussions - I simply had not noticed the change, so the team might have thought I was not interested when I just did not know it was there!

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/lindaljc

I've still got mine!

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Thijmen98

I don't have the Word Tab, so that's why I didn't understand what you mean.

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/altlmiss

Looks great! Can't wait until it's rolled out to everyone. It would help me a lot - especially with those irregular verbs.

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Kgm_7

If you struggle with verbs a lot (like I used to), I would make a word document as you go along the verbs and make a table of them with their conjugations. I done that and printed it out and now I go over it every day :)

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/SarahShaheenn

how do we update it??

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Kgm_7

It's not possible to update it. From what I have heard, Duolingo is trying out these new features with a group of people to see their opinion of it. I guess I was in that group. But I'm sure this feature will be made official, it's very helpful! :)

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/SarahShaheenn

thanks

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/NancyMihalich

I absolutely love this new, new feature! It is so much better than the previous falshcards!!!!! Oh, what fun! Thanks for pointing this out, Kgm7! I thought I had lost it yesterday! I was wrong!

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/_pinkodoug_

Flashcards are still being tested, Duo just shuffled some of the test group memberships, so some that had flashcards two days ago, lost them yesterday.

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Kgm_7

Yep, I lost flashcards since yesterday. I didn't quite like that feature as it was missing several things like conjugations and genders... I love this feature though! :)

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/_pinkodoug_

It looks like some lucky few get to have both still. I have neither.

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Kgm_7

I am sure this new words feature will be made official! It's really good! :)

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Kgm_7

No problem :D

July 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/RienaW

Definitely excited for this feature. I haven't had the ability to test it yet, but I had the flashcards and (while I love all of the work Duolingo puts into all of their updates) I was pretty disappointed with those.

This, however, looks fantastic! How extensive are the verb conjugations that they list? Do they list all of the forms, or just the present tense?

July 27, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Kgm_7

I think it depends on what tense you've reached on the tree. I've only just passed the Present Tense 1 skill so only the present tense shows :).

July 27, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/RienaW

I got it on mine! It does show all of the verb forms. Mine was separated into tables in three categories: Indicative (Present, Future, and Past Imperfect), Subjunctive (Present Conditional and Present Subjunctive), and Other (Gerund, Imperative, and Infinitive). Examples on usage of all the forms (as far as I could tell) were at the top.

That's great! :)

Bescherelle is the bet homepage for verb conjugations. They have everything in their database =)

July 29, 2014

Is there a practice button? It would be helpful for conjugation practice.

Could you please inform me how I can reach this feature? I cannot find it.

June 22, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/PhilipJollans

I have a list of about 1600 words, most of them with 4 bars ("Still Strong"), but down at the bottom there are quite a few with 1 bar, which I can't get rid of. I have repeated the relevant lessons, and practiced them repeatedly, but they won't go. At the end of the list I have about 10 words with "Last Practiced" 5 months ago, which is simply not true. I have seen these words more recently. Does anybody know how to fix this?

September 8, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/PhilipJollans

I have found some more stuff out. 1. Repeating the lesson doesn't count, even if you 'see' the same words again. You have to see the words during practice of the lesson. 2. I think you have to see the words during practice of the same lesson. 3. Some words don't come up in practice. In particular, I have about 9 words from the lesson "Present 1" in Italian, which are at the bottom of my list, which I can't refresh. It is as if the words are in the lesson, and get added to the list, but are not in the practice.

September 13, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/PhilipJollans

And I found something else out. Use Chrome in preference to Firefox. It works better.

I'm from Poland and I learn English. I haven't the list of words. When it will be?

July 23, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/DirtyHarri3

well, that version bit the dust. It's hopeless the way it is now. When you click on the word, it give sentences that the word is used in but no way to know what lesson it was first introduced so you can practice it. And the sort feature only works for each time frame, so I can't sort all the words by noun and have them all together. I really don't do well with change because changes don't seem to always be for the better.
