New skills- Body parts+ accents
Unfortunately, there is neither "Body parts" skill nor "accents" skill. I think both are really important and basic to learn. Can you please consider creating them?
thanks, but, it doesn't explain each one's meaning. Or did I miss the explanations?
No there is no explanation, as usual on Duo. But if you listen carefully to the pronunciation of the words you will eventually know how all the letters sound. (Yes, I know the sythetic speach has errors, but in general it works well).
What do you mean "meaning", though? You mean what is does to the letter? Well there is no level on the french alphabet, so we don't learn the name of letters, so wie don't learn the names of the letters with an accent. Asking for an explanation is a bit like asking how letter "e" sounds. Accents chance the sound of a letter. I couldn't explain the meaning of "¨" on the german letter "ä", "ö" and "ü". They are just letters by themselves, not an "a" that has something done to it... I guess the concept is a bit odd for those who don't use any accents in there native tongue. But if you want to hear the sound of the alphabet go to youtube and search for french alphabet, there are plenty of those.
And some are just there to distinguish between word like "ou" and "où".
At the moment "Medical" shows up in 14th last position on the skills tree. I think it would be helpful if this skill is presented much earlier so that one could become familiar with the body parts-related vocab. much sooner than is currently the case.
You would be better off looking for a resource outside of Duolingo that teaches accent/pronunciation. Forvo is a good site for that stuff :)
