What language keyboard did you use to make this emoji?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MagaDzhabr

You have to copy and paste it. And by the way they aren emojis they are "Emoticons" or "Lenny Faces".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BernhardMa1

The Google keyboard app Gboard for Android has a special section for them. When you press the smiley icon left of the space bar/button where you also access Emoji, there is a :-) that brings up text emoticon templates. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

This is the most sweet and wholesome thing on Duolingo.

Have you done the Esperanto course? It's non-stop about kissing and honestly makes you sad if you don't have someone to do that with.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NicoraBogdan

What a relieve! I wasn't into learning Esperanto but will keep myself away from that course even more from now on lol

I guess, but what happens when this love interest starts to lose their looks and mental acuity? Hm? Is the love conditional?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AlexDale7

In colloquial (Canadian) English, the statement "very smart and handsome" can imply "very smart" and "very handsome" ("very" modifies both adjectives), but it can also imply "very smart" and just "handsome".

Is this the same for Russian, or does "очень" always modify both adjectives/adverbs, or does "очень" only modify the following adjective/adverb?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Agelastos

I am sure in this case it is for both "smart" and "handsome".

Спасибо, Дуо!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Loo951371

Dear Duo, I am very flattered, however I am surprised it took you this long through the course to tell me this...

Я знаю, я знаю...

Thanks i know.... But go back to the friend zone


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/john.newbe

I put like and was down marked....elsewhere like / love have been said to be interchangeable. Is there something here that shrieks love ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/problemslike

You're talking about a person.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Crotha

And how would you say you like the person?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Apyrase

Мне нравится ты


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bettyru2

This would probably be: Ты мне нравишься. I don't know the exact order of the words. Only нравится should be conjugated to the second person.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/curtkobain

Does красивый also mean beautiful or pretty; can it be used on females?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MagaDzhabr

Yeah, красивый means beautiful.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/geneven

You can't just "like" somebody because they're very smart and handsome? I got it wrong because I used the word like instead of love


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/luisa710900

I think люблю only means to Love while Мне нравится means to like. I like you is (Ты мне нравишься) But am not a native Russian speaker so don't relay on my replay too much


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Guenter212784

I don´t comprehend why "I love you because you are very clever and beautiful" is rejected.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SuperCiacco

Came here just for the comments


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Amuglot

I'm wondering why the genitive form of the personal pronoun is used here. I would have expected the dative case. Is this a general rule with the verb "to love." спосибo


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RichWood9

Can the что be omitted here?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RichWood9

Thanks for the reply, why can't it be omitted?

Because = потому что (if this information is still needed)
