Immersion and uploading documents...
In the Lingot store it mentions something about uploading documents in the immersion section the be graded/ translated. Is this something that is no longer offered? I'm looking in circles trying to find everything.
Only for some languages. Spanish French German Portuguese and Italian?
It would be easy to find if it exists for your language, it would be one of the options at the top with "Home" "Activity" "Discussion".
It would say "Home" "Words" "Activity" "Discussion" "Immersion"
Here's some lingots.
As much as I'd love to have it here, Norwegian will likely never have an Immersion section.
Duolingo staff has stated that Immersion takes too much resources compared to the relatively low increase in user engagement that it provides, and that they have no commitment to rolling it out for the new language courses. Source.
Keep in mind that the vast majority of users are app users, who have no idea Immersion even exists.
Here are a few more immersion uploads as at 30/01: 1. https://www.duolingo.com/translation/9767b733499b9b3b8557242afe775a8c 2. https://www.duolingo.com/translation/bc7d0f3c3591bf752478352b9b5ec7e6
For some reason, someone found a way to do it. It is unofficial though and the articles uploaded won't be made publicly known unless the uploader 'manually' shares it in forums like these. Check this page for more information on how to do it: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/13018570 .
In addition, here are a few immersion uploads for Norwegian you may want to look at: 1. https://www.duolingo.com/translation/90b2db10c555e219bc449f762f816836 2. https://www.duolingo.com/translation/9a564bd8dc62ccd39fc926281aff2e97 3. https://www.duolingo.com/translation/ec9dae8cbf425f173b991e605ed1de34
I'm convinced immersion is the best way to learn a language – I've made vast progress in French that way – and Duolingo's hover-hints are invaluable. It's such a shame it isn't formally supported for all languages, though kudos to those who've managed to make it available anyway! And thanks to those posting relevant links!
Probably because it's still in beta mode. When it is "officially" released we might have access to the immersion section. At least, I hope so.
