I like the new sound effects!
Very cute. I'm sure there will be detractors, but I like them & think they are kind of charming & fun. Thank you, Duolingo designers, for all that you do to make language learning a rewarding & enjoyable experience. :)
I love them! By chance had my speakers on and very much enjoyed the fanfare after completing a practice!
It reminds me videogames... was strange at beginning ~ But then I liked it.
Yes, I appreciated it too.. It sounded very user friendly and very rewarding.
I hate the sounds as they add nothing to the learning process. Someone advises me that I turn of my sound! I'd like to know how might I do this and still hear the questions?? Any advice?
Turn off sound effects in your account settings. This option does not affect the questions.
Olimo, many thanks, but I don't know where to look or how to do this. Can you advise?
Olima, You Are A Star!! I have succeeded and am now free of the stupid sounds. I really was becoming disheartened and was about to give up on this most excellent programme. Now I can happily continue. Again, my thanks.
Do you mean the settings? Click the gear icon in the upper right corner and select Settings. There is where your account settings are.
