English to French translation
Hi! Does anyone know if there is a way to change the settings so that the lessons ask me to translate from English to French more often? 90% of the time I get asked to translate from French to English, which is way too easy and doesn't help really help me grasp the spelling and grammar. I am new to Duolingo and and I really like it, but I wish the questions were a bit more challenging!
I agree 100%.
It seems backwards that English words I'm already familiar with take priority over words I'm trying to learn.
I was also wondering why I was not getting English-to-French questions, until I learned that DuoLingo is conducting an A/B study. Apparently, we are in the easier group that drills us with more French-to-English translations. I'd rather switch to the more difficult group but I suppose such defections would affect the results of the study. Think I'll just begin the reverse tree...
yeah, I was considering that too...anyway, I hope they change it soon. I feel like I'm not getting as much out of Duolingo as I could be, which is unfortunate
Quite a few people have been concerned about this - apparently there is an a/b test running. I agree with you; it's really not helping us learn the spelling or the sentence construction when you just translate from your target language to English.
I hope they change it soon! I really like learning French on Dueling but the French to English translation is just way too easy!
This is my second go at Duolingo and I must have been sorted to the DuoTooEasy mode. Really annoying since I felt I was learning far more when confronted with the sometimes difficult English-to-French questions. Does any one at DuoLingo monitor these forums? I don't like this dumbed down version!
Nina, I agree, and it seems to be more unidirectional the higher you go. (I'm at level 13 French)
