I wanted to give you a heads up that we’re planning to remove / not have Listening Skills on Decks web and mobile and the reasons for this.
Listening Skills is the least popular mode for community course learning by some distance. It accounts for between 1-4% of community learning sessions on Memrise and Decks, depending on the platform (1% for iOS and Android, 4% for Web). This also holds for community sessions done by Pro users.
The other 96-99% of community learning sessions are Learn, Classic Review, Speed Review, and Difficult Words.
The logic behind removing it on Decks is therefore to simplify the community learning experience, given it is used so little, and to reduce maintenance for us.
Listening Skills will continue to be on Memrise, where it is used much more.
I’m sorry for anyone who likes Listening Skills for community learning. Decks will still have Learn, Classic Review, Speed Review, and Difficult Words, so I hope most of you will not be much affected.
Thanks, please let me know if you have any questions or comments.
