#Duolingo pro-tip ... the app sucks. Language lessons have "tips", many of which are full-blown lessons in themselves, explaining grammar, sentence structure, word choices, etc.
You (apparently) cannot read the "tips" in the app. If you use the app, have the website open in your mobile browser, as well, to review the tips for each lesson.
Just my dos centavos.
@nattiegoogie excellent! Although, I thought I used to see that the app used to have discussions for each question and answer. Especially about the answer. Also it is never predictable when or how flexible Duo can be. I should probably be reading the Tips, but I like challenging my guessing to start a lesson or level as blank as possible. I should revisit tips when I'm revisiting older categories
@nattiegoogie @dadegroot So, as far as I understood (I do not know the German language), the German word "hamsterkäufen" means literally "to be buying similarly like a hamster eats"; so, not "hamster-buying", but I think "hamster-way-buying", or "like-hamster-eats-buying", or "hamster's buying". An English word about a person: "shopaholic".
She seems remarkably pleased to be delivering such distressing news, @nattiegoogie
