Eu tentei usar o Duolingo pra aprender coreano mas o curso de coreano era horrendo de ruim.

I didn't think it was all that bad. Lingodeer is better though.

While the Korean course may be better than Duolingo's, the general idea is the same and it's still ridiculous:

There's even a Korean flag!

Oh, nice!

But when did Duolingo make testing out of lessons a paid feature? :? At least testing out to the next checkpoint still works, and thankfully it was actually doable for the first two checkpoints (even though I lost three hearts and almost failed...)

Sometime last fall? I was bummed.

You can still skip the remaining lessons on a level but doing the first two flawlessly. It's a less forgiving route than testing out of a level all at once, but on the other hand you can cheat (by highlighting unknown words). Fortunately, I built up a huge store of lingots last year and had nothing to spend them on, so I use those to pay for placement. (5 lingots a pop, with a reward of 1 lingot for succeeding sometimes.)

I made a couple of dumb mistakes on the initial placement test for Yiddish and was so annoyed I almost quit and started over. But now I'm making it up by passing individual checkpoints so it's no big.

It's just an example.
