Translations not at bottom of screen

I don't know if this is supposed to be an improvement, but if I get the answer right it no longer shows the correct translation at the bottom. That is fine when I am translating, but not when I am verbally repeating a sentence. Is this a bug? Can we go back to the old format?

This is a bug, and will be fixed tomorrow (or else they might not let me into the duolingo holiday party).

It is funny, I noticed the bug this morning, and assumed it was an experiment to see if it helped us learn better, and then halfway through a lesson it just got fixed.

It can be easy to forget that you guys are behind the scenes always improving things, it is amazing to see it happen right in front of your eyes live!

Where I work we have maintenance windows to push code to production, I envy your ability to do it live like that. There should be a developer's blog, I would love to have some insight into how you guys work, what tech you use etc :)

Yes, did this just start today? That was an integral part of my learning process...

I'm pretty sure this must be a bug.

We would hate to have that happen. Thanks, Tyler!
