Duo is the name of Duolingo's mascot. It's just the app's creators having a little fun. :)
Definitely, would appreciate using more realistic names rather than app ones
Doo-oh, shortened from Duolingo. Duo the owl is like the company's mascot.
Yes. Also "you're welcome" and "here you go".
The basic meaning of bitten is "ask" and the connection with all these polite requests is like that as well:
"Do something for me, please" = I ask you do to it.
"Pardon?" = I ask you to say that again
"You're welcome." = I ask you not to mention it
"Here you go." = I ask you to acknowledge what I have given you
How do I know when to use please, ask, or you are welcome. Do I just judge it off of the rest of the sentence?
If I go to a German resturant, is polite to reply "Ja bitte" when a waiter asks a question?
Wait, why would they say "sie" in that sentence? There is no "she" or "they" in the translation. I assume it also means something else?
Why did it say my "Duo" pronuciation waa wrong?
No matter. I'm glad I'm learning this language, for the sake of my boyfriend. Although he speaks American good, he is German.
This software did not interpret my sound correctly. Everytime I use my microphone and say the German sentence which was given to me it always shows me incorrect. Please anyone help me in this.
I said exactly "Yes please, Duo." maybe a little bit fast, but in a very clear voice!
Bitte is also used to say 'you are welcome' in which case the sentence would read as the following "Yes you are welcome, Duo."
This is also correct, but it said it was wrong
There are different kinds of exercises on Duolingo.
Sometimes you have to translate a written sentence; sometimes you have to listen to some text in German and write down the German words that you heard; sometimes you have to pick out the correct answers from a mixture of correct and incorrect options; and so on.
It should usually say at the top of each exercise what it expects you to do.
The good thing to prevent confusion is that all noun in Deutsch are write by the capital letters.
He needs to enunciate better so we here the difference between "Duo" and "du."
