I had no idea what was being said, so I typed what I heard, and it was exactly right. I clicked this discussion to find out what it meant, as I had never heard this in English or in German - wondering if it was a regional English phrase or a new German word for me to learn. I feel silly now, because I didn't even connect the new word with the robot with whom I am communicating. I'm glad the developers have a sense of humor and I vow to be more polite to the robot in the future.
Keep in mind folks - this is a game.
This is the 4th time out of 10 prompts that the word "hallo" is used. It's an easy cognate with the English word "hello" and doesn't need much practice. I think the last time I worked this lesson that 7/20 were "hallo" . Please consider reducing the number of "hallo" practices in favor of "good-bye" which is is much harder or the other phrases. I think we English speakers get "Hallo" on the first try or two. Thanks.
Don't really understand why anybody is confused about the name Duo. this is called duolingo. Anybody really not know what app they're using? You had to know in order to find it in the App Store and download it so you know what this app is called so for short it makes total and absolute 1000% sense to say duo. I figured it out the first time I heard the word duo in the program that it was probably shortening duo as a name because they're gonna use their own program. They could say welcome Sam or thank you Sam or please Sam but they are going to use duo because that's their own program it makes sense. Come on people this is not very confusing. And I'm not trying to get myself down votes or deleted or blocked I'm just trying to say that everybody's making a big cow about this when it's actually pretty obvious if you pay attention it doesn't take a lot of sense to recognize or notice that about the program that they're using duo Place of saying Sam or Jenny or Megan or Tiffany or Michael or Alex and I did not know that the owl's name was Duolingo but I figured out pretty quickly and understood pretty quickly that duo was short for duolingo because "duo" lingo. I mean I guess not everybody can pick up on that as quickly but if you are native English speaking or Native American speaking you would probably pick up on that duo – Duolingo thing.
