Laughably useless but sadistically fun
I don't want to be too snarky in commenting on an otherwise outstanding (and free) product, but this section is so pedagogically worthless that it's actually quite humorous. I felt that way when I completed it a couple weeks ago, and having gone back to practice this section after completing seven other lessons has only confirmed that feeling. Perhaps the creators of this section wanted to create an example of how poor language training can be to remind us of how well-thought out and executed the rest of the lessons are? Or maybe they wanted to frustrate people so they drop the course to limit the users of the following sections for some reason?
In any event, to those who are struggling with this section keep plugging away at it. Once you get through it by whatever means at your disposal, you'll find the following lessons to be valuable and much more reasonable.
I agree that this is a very hard section. And duolingo could provide us with more grammatical explanation. However this information is available elsehwere on the internet. That does not make this section useless. It is just a very hard part of French grammar. I used this website to help me: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_pronouns and I often use http://french.about.com/. Hope this will help you and others with section :)
Oh, this goes for the "Pronouns 2" unit. I thought it was in the title. Oops
It is, but it stills shows up in the discussion area. (You can still find it in the pronouns 2 area.)
I had zoomed through most things until I got here. I don't know how many attempts I've made so far at this section! I don't really feel like I'm learning much here either.
