Don't some of us get very tired of scrolling down our trees so we can learn a new skill? I know I do, so I thought I would offer my suggestion to improve Duolingo. This change would put the level of skills you are learning at the top of your tree. The one negative thing about this is that you won't be scrolling down past all your decayed skills, but I think this might inspire people to get right to work when they log in. Let me now what y'all think!
Not a bad idea! Do you mean that the tree would be backwards, or do you mean that it would simply show your only one skill you are currently studying? Both would work, I suppose not the backwards idea though. I think there are many things DL could improve, such as strengthening. Sometimes I log on to DL simply to realize that the skill I just strengthened yesterday is weak again......I think that could use some work. Not a bad idea, asawp! :D
Yes, a good idea! How about an adaptation to it as well, where you could drag a particular skill to a box down one side of the screen?
This would mean that you move any skills you wanted to practise more extensively into their own little area.
Perhaps it could be enabled only after the tree is completed, as an indicator of having achieved that milestone.
Having finished a tree, it seems to me that the game-like format runs out of steam a bit, and of course that's when the real work of properly learning the language begins. But even so, this would probably add a nice little bit of fun/involvement to the interface. Maybe worth another A/B test someday?
There's a userscript out there called "Duolingo - Trim Tree" (I think) that lets you do almost exactly this, except it shows the skills that need to be strengthened too and hides all the other skills instead of just putting the ones that are being studied or need to be reviewed at the top.
Here's a suggestion : to give all the possibilities of reporting a bug, even if you got the proper answer (I don't know if that possibility exists in some of the courses, but not in Hungarian Beta).
=>Because sometimes you can give the proper answer expected by Duolingo, and still would like to report that the English sentence has an error, which you can report only if you fail answering...
