Teacher Review For Duolingo

Useful to learn by translation and not immersion. Learners may benefit if on the long run information stops being translated.

How I Use It
Used to research learning outcome in my classroom to comapre it to immersion exposure.
My Take
Immersion vs. translation- how will students retain information is key. Students who have difficulty with language benefit from connecting ilustration to meaning of the word rather than translation.
