Description from store Duolingo, and the Chinese course have changed a lot since this extension was built, The job on my own is too big so I'm going to open source it on GitHub. If you're interested in collaborating please follow and start this repository: https://github.com/robincard/chinese-duolingo (It's empty right now). And, if you're a developer or not, feel free to join the discord which will be for developers and non-developers. https://discord.gg/FKWCr9C As of 2018; this extension is no longer supported. The information below is for reference only. This extension allows users to see the meanings of characters as you learn, store character meanings and switch between traditional and simplified. • Switch between traditional and simplified • See word definitions • See a list of word of learned words • Collect a basket of words you want to learn later • Re-hear sentences slowly, in a different voice. If you're interested in reading any Chinese literature published before the 1950s it will be most advantageous to learn the traditional characters. Also, it is easier to read simplified if one has learned traditional Chinese, than the reverse. 0.9998 Made the delete button in the basket look like the delete button in the skills quiz. 0.9997.1.2 Made the delete button in the basket look like the delete button in the skills quiz.
