The Klingon Language Institute Forums Duolingo Duolingo's new format

  • Duolingo's new format

    I’m sure this question has been asked in other places, but I could not locate the Klingon-language forums on Duolingo and I’m not facile with Discord.

    Duolingo has shifted to their new “yellow brick road” format. The “Tips” that I relied on to learn and review grammar are gone. The few guidelines that are present are, frankly, inadequate.

    I’m going to take a wild guess: Duolingo dumped the new format on you. The Duolingo Klingon course is maintained by unpaid (but dearly appreciated!) volunteers. No one has had the chance to create revised guidelines.

    Is this guess accurate? Is there a rough timescale by which we might expect some guidelines to appear?

    Or perhaps, given what Duolingo has done, should I seek a different on-line resource for a daily Klingon lesson?

    Duolingo deleted their forums earlier this year. ☹

    We are currently working with Duolingo to get the “tips” added to the new path. They forced us to switch without giving us the option to get the “tips” converted to their new “Guidebook” format.

    In the meantime, we’re working to compile a list of links to those tips and will expand the post in the forums with them as soon as we have them all. We know this is making learning Klingon using the Duolingo app more difficult.
