There should be a section where you actually use what you have learned to have conversation with other people who are learning the same language.
We would like to include more opportunities to practice speaking with others through Duolingo. Happy you're interested! Have you tried the immersion section (a good way for advanced learners to put their language skills to use- great practice and a nice challenge)?
I agree, but for me the immersion section has become more of a check if someones translation makes sense, rather than translating the article. :(
I think that it would be nice if the Immersion section wasn't translating parts of sentences, but allowed longer translations. It is difficult to figure out what the highlighted section means when it is broken up into small sections. Especially when different users translate different parts of the same sentence.
