I want to be able to practice on flights.

Flights are the perfect time to practice while killing time. It would be nice if we could practice offline or download the modules we want to practice later when we do not have Internet access.

I was wondering why there isn't a desktop/offline option where you download the entire course. I figured maybe it isn't possible, but then it seems on my tablet even if there's no internet I can work on in-progress sections, I just can't move on.

Maybe it downloads a few units ahead so you can learn a couple, but you don't have to learn the whole lot

That's what I figured, but if it downloads anything it would seem to me there should be an option to download the whole course (which may be useful in situations where you are going to be on a bus/plane/train/elsewhere an extended period of time without internet.)

That would be a really good idea!

You could also allow time stamping so the offline version you were using could sync with the server when you got back.

I am sure this is possible, but I am not sure DL has the time or resources to spend on such a project.

I totally agree with you......it seems that someone always has something to catch up on. EVERYONE!!!

Absolutely. An offline version of Duolingo would be much appreciated.

I know, I've had the same thought. Thankfully Memrise allows you to make courses (sets of flashcards) available offline. I have all of the Duo vocab there and I use it frequently on flights :)

You might be able to download (or even write) some activity sheets to practice on. I usually do that.:) It usually is good practice to do something on paper instead of on the computer.

    Activity sheets are a good idea. That way I can test myself so I actually know the words and/or sentence structure. I'm good at memorizing but that doesn't help me. I wonder if we could get free printouts in the future!
