    It's been years since I used Duolingo, but I do remember that I had some head scratching/eyebrow raising moments with Spanish!

    Comment


      JCU In Scottish Gaelic, I’ve had:

      “Cha toil leam aodach idir.” - I do not like clothes at all.
      A little odd to share but alright.

      “Halò Eilidh! Tha drathais orm.” - Hello Eilidh! I have underpants on!
      Again, odd to share but humorous. Especially when, in my mind, I picture someone yelling this to their neighbor across the street.

      Then Irish:
      “Tá an bhean sa chuisneoir.” - The woman is in the fridge.
      This one made me very concerned. It’s funny but I’m also just like ​​​​​​​.

        Those are hysterical! But, yeah, saying a woman is in the fridge is definitely a questionable comment...

          JCU yeah, I'm getting curious why they think Irish women would be found in the fridge

            I've seen some absurd phrases in Portuguese and Russian. Mind you, since I'm a native Spanish speaker, I have DuoLingo in Spanish, so the absurdity isn't limited to one language only.

            This is the second reason as to why DuoLingo is the butt of some jokes across the Internet. The first reason is the daily reminders.

              Duolingo gave me "my daughter died then turned into a zombie and tried to eat my brain." There was also "my girlfriend was killed by a wizard without a nose". I'm sure these are sentences I will use, yeah? Apparently the reason for this is so that you remember the vocab and constructions and don't just guess at things. Who could guess at those?!

                TopNotch Sounds like the folks at DuoLingo were watching way too much B movies

                Comment


                  TopNotch I figured that would be the reason why. Makes sure you’re paying attention. I love coming across sentences like that. It makes it interesting.

                    Got hit with a migraine in the afternoon. I took my breakthrough meds immediately but it didn’t go away. This was the first time in a long time that I’ve had a migraine.

                    Reward! But it’s going to have to wait until I feel better.

                      I hate migraines. I hope you feel better by now. In any case, healing vibes
