DUOセレクト例文徹底解説: DUOセレクトで英語学習される全ての方へ (全例文378本を解説)

DUOセレクトの解説記事を書いた理由

管理人はDUO3.0で英語基礎を身に付けたので、DUOセレクトでは学習してません。ただ、Twitterのツイートを見ていると、少数ながらDUOセレクトを選ばれている印象がありました。

ちょっと気になってDUOセレクトを見てみたのですが、DUO3.0の単語とかなり被っており、かつ例文数も378本(多いですがDUO3.0の560本に比べれば少ない)だったので、説明を流用する形で解説記事に出来るのではと感じました。

学習者視点では、取り組んでいる例文に対する解説が1ページにまとまっていた方が利便性がよいので、DUOセレクト学習者用に解説記事を書き直してみたという感じです。
