German needs a 'practice genders' option in addition to practice words

Title says it all ^^

It'd also be helpful if the vocab list included the gender

Go to vocabulary and practice 'ein.' That way, you can practice genders in the context of Duo sentences. Edit: I'd recommend the same with 'das,' but the different genders are listed separately.

That's a good idea, thanks!

great idea thanks

Would love this, I have trouble with figuring out gender because it's very different than in my language.

I am doing memrise vocab lessons (5000 most frequent german words, sorted by frequency) + DL . Would be much nicer to do it on one site but I'm hardly complaining about all this nicely made free education...

When you practice the words, you also practice the genders. But for pure vocabulary drills I do prefer Memrise.

I myself prefer Anki, http://ankisrs.net/, of course any type of SRS should do.

Ahh, I tried Duo and Mem first up together, lasted 5 minutes on memrise as Duo had hooked me already as I tried that first. Maybe I'll have to go back to Memrise and try some of the pure vocab lists ^^

I was doing Dou and Babble but Dou is a lot easier to understand and use than Babble.

Yeah, I have trouble remembering if it's der, die, das, ein, eine, einen, den, dem.........and so forth.

haha yes I agree!

I found a video before I found duolingo that I found very helpful for die/der/das, I don't know if it will help but here's the youtube link (Introduction to German Nouns and Definite Articles - Elon German Studies)
