Do you mean the fluency rating or the whole Duolingo programme?  If the first, I agree, crude method of encouragement at the best.  If the second, I think that you're being a little bit drastic.  I'm not aiming to speak enough German to get a job; I'm only interested in mastering enough grammar to have some conversation (mainly in pubs!).  I can nearly do that with my limited capability now and Duolingo is definitely helping but we'll see the results when put into practice.

I've already taken on board your recommendation re the modal (not model!) verbs, though, as with all things memorising their conjugations is not so easy but getting there!  Again, the proof of the pudding will be in the eating or, more hopefully, the drinking.  What I really need is someone to talk to in German on a regular basis but I still haven't found anyone here yet.

BTW: have you heard anything about the supposed 'one in a hundred winters' that Issy posted on Facebook?
