  5. Gender in vocabulary


Gender in vocabulary

It would really be nice if this was returned. Many, many people have asked about it, but there is still no gender designation in the vocabulary lists. It has been months since I first asked, was told there would be updates, but still nothing. Please bring this back. Thank you.

Yeah that would be easier


Are you asking to bring the discussion back or are you saying that at one time there was actually a gender designation in the vocabulary main page (if so why did they take it out)?


No, about four or five months ago the gender labels were in the vocabulary lists. For example, if you went to see the whole list of words for the section on occupations, the gender was next to the word for the entire list. You wouldn't have to click each word to see what the gender was. Made it a lot easier to refresh my memory. I have no idea why it was taken out.


how about colour coding words ie: red feminine, blue masculine


great idea! Although for German, it would be red, blue, and black? (Male, Female, and Neuter). I hope somebody at Duolingo is reading this!


I saw the suggestion of colour coding words according to gender. I think that would be a great addition to add to the Vocab lists


I am a new comer for duolingo but I find it very interesting the way it teaches. I am learning French.


I see this message was posted 2 years ago but I have been thinking the same thing as I study French now. Having vocabulary lists that include gender would be immensely helpful.
