Duolingo, please add the definite (nominative) article for the nouns in the Flashcards. It will be of great help in memorizing the genders of nouns. Danke!

+1 Completely agree with this suggestion. Not having the article makes this feature much less useful for nouns. It would also be nice if the nouns were capitalized as they should be.

Definitely! Also the option to do cards from the other side would be great; that is eng-de in addition to de-eng. I am a native speaker of a different west germanic language, so translating from German to English is often quite easy for me. The reverse, English to German, is a much more important form of practice to me.

And here I was, thinking it was a reward for finishing my German tree.

A 'you are wrong, Duo' button would also be useful. It just gave me 'Park', and claimed it was a verb despite the capital letter.

From my use of "Words" it is very clear that a lot is lacking as far as comprehensive relevance. However, all of its short comings aside I feel it can be a very useful tool if continually improved.

the English translations are American usage which isnt a problem most of the time as British English speakers understand both. It took me a while to get Liter /Liter is Litre in Brit English. It would be good to include or allow for Brit English in the word translations. ie; Garten is 'Garden' not Yard (which to us is a small paved area at the back of a house)
