  • RE: Apprendre le portugais.

    Bonjour @Yann-de-Prince et bienvenue à Lingvist. Maintenant, Linvist propose d'apprendre l'anglais en portugais. Peut-être, est-ce que vous cherchez à apprendre le portugais? Vous pouvez voter pour un nouveau cours ici: Vote for your most wanted language pair here!

    I hope what I did to the French language above is more or less comprehensible, but I'll repeat it in English, just in case 😉 At the moment Lingvist offers an English course taught in Portuguese. If you want to learn Portuguese (or any other language currently not offered), you can vote for your favourite new course here: Vote for your most wanted language pair here!

  • Variations of Russian instrumental pronouns not being accepted as correct

    Before I start - sorry if I haven't put this in the correct category, feel free to move it as you wish!

    I've been progressing along in the English-Russian course and I've gotten to the point where I'm learning instrumental pronouns - мной, тобой, собой etc. I already had some knowledge about this from the Duolingo course, but when I went to put them in, they weren't accepted as correct at all, with Lingvist forcing me to enter мною, тобою and собою instead, even though these forms of the word are considered to be either dated or dialectal, and not the standard form that most Russians would use. If this could be fixed to at least accept both answers as correct, I'd be very grateful.

    Thanks in advance!

    Same happens to me, it's also visually messed up. And I don't think access to the sidebar should be revoked.

    Just a short moderator note: Because it seems to be the same bug, I joined the two threads about it together.

    Addendum: If Google Translate didn't get me on the wrong track, this bug report seems to be at least related.

  • Stuck after completing a course focus

    I just came across a bug in the web app. After I completed a Course focus (in my case, "A Weekend in Paris" in the EN -> FR course), I got to the screen that says

    You have completed all of our Unlimited Course Focuses – amazing! You can now continue learning with our General Language course.

    But if I click on the button "Learn General Language", nothing (visible) happens and I'm basically stuck on this screen.

    I can reproduce the problem in different browsers on Ubuntu Linux 16.04. Firefox and Chromium give different error messages in the console:

    Firefox 61.0 gives me this error message twice every time I click the button

    A reload doesn't solve the problem in neither browser, I have to wait until some cards are due for review.

  • RE: Lingvist Unlimited holiday challenge

    @kaspar Hi Kaspar,

    I've just been doing all the cards in my repeat stack to get it to 0 everyday. So sometimes I'll do 100 cards, sometimes it's much less than that. It all depends on what the algorithm wants to give me 🤖 👩‍🏫

  • RE: There are often synonyms, that are not accepted as the correct answer

    @Lubos-Dobrovoda I agree that the synonym recognition could use some work. But it's not always that easy.

    You're right in the "Samstag" == "Sonnabend" case. But "hier" and "da" aren't really interchangeable. "hier" refers to where the action takes place, like "here" in English. "da" has a more demonstrative meaning, it refers to wherever the speaker wants it to point. That can be here, it can be there, it can be anywhere 😉

    As far as "Rechner" and "Computer" are concerned, if anything, "Computer" is used far more frequently these days than "Rechner". Just as an example, the Google ngram viewer shows that "Computer" is used about 3 to 4 times as often as "Rechner". That's also about congruent to my experience as a native speaker.

    Additionally, in German "Rechner" refers to anything or anybody that computes. That can be a computer, but it can also be, for example, a "Tarifrechner" on an insurance company's website. The English term "computer" includes that broader meaning as well, but the German loan word doesn't. So in German, "Rechner" and "Computer" aren't exactly synonymes.

  • RE: No use of paid version!!!!

    Hey, I resent that! I'm a developer myself (not at Lingvist, though), and I'd like to make clear that @Kaspar is not my son! 😜

    Seriously, though, as Kaspar already said, the LingVist devs are always up for suggestions how to make the service better.
