Question about skills

Does Duolingo ever add new skills to our language tree's?

September 18, 2013



I want to know too. Just finished French skill tree and wondering "now what?". I still really need to strengthen my skills and advance my (rather low) level. Is translating the only option besides just to keep re-doing the same skills/same questions again and again? Translating articles may be a valuable complement to learning, but it doesn't replace the essential repetitive work of learning a language.

Rather a let-down. I loved it so far, but there just wasn't enough.


One option is to go to settings (http://www.duolingo.com/settings/account) and choose I want to learn English (I speak French). That way you get more English to French translation type of exercises. Also there some new words or phrases to learn.

You can learn a bit more by answering other users' questions in French sentence discussion section. http://www.duolingo.com/topic/147/sent

In couple of days the language incubator will start, which could mean more words/skills. http://www.duolingo.com/comment/868354

Language experts are constantly adding new sentences to our skills and also you must take in account that you probably haven't seen all the sentences in a certain skill if you only did it once.
