Duolingo is getting worse
Why is Duolingo working so hard to make itself worse?
I think its only a matter of time they change it again and add hearts to the PC version, if they continue down this path of money-grabbing from free users that might not be to afford plus I will have to cancel my plus out of personal morals and I hope other plus members will do the same to send a message to Duolingo the only way they will listen and that is reducing their profit margin.
If Duolingo is really listening to the community they should revert the changes and just improve the courses otherwise I see the community disappearing
Fortunately, duome.eu is not part of Duolingo!
Please, read about this wonderful website in
They (or someone else) should make a clone of Duolingo.
For language flashcards: https://www.memrise.com/home/https://decks.memrise.com/home/
For language in context: https://www.clozemaster.com/ (Don't use this too much though)
For immersion (will need VPN): (French) https://www.france.tv/ https://www.tf1.fr/
If you don't have a VPN, you can still immerse yourself in a language with YouTube, but you'll have to change the language. For Esperanto learners, you can find all Esperanto-language videos at Tubaro: https://tubaro.aperu.net/
Hope this helps!
It's all about money for Duolingo now. They make it seem free but they make a lot of money. The changes to XP and leaderboards obviously pushes people to significantly spend more time on Duo (due to competition, beat the others etc) and get exposed to significantly more advertisements. All their changes are around that. They want to see what would make you stay longer and get exposed to more advertisements rather than what would make you learn the languages more efficiently because that just won't be as rewarding to them as the first option
