UPDATE: THE GIVEAWAY IS OVER.

Two years ago today, I was looking for a Spanish-learning app and found Duolingo. I found that it was a remarkable application with its game-like system that makes learning languages fun and a lot less of a chore (compared to learning from books). So a great big thank you to the developers who made it.

Now, I have completed three trees, and I'm working on a fourth.

I have also accumulated 2872 lingots.

Now for the Duoversary FIESTA!

This Duoversary is brought to you by HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY (care of the French course and the iOS app).

Nous devons payer l'impôt.

HAPPY HAPPY

Il a un accident de voiture.

JOY JOY

Deux personnes sont mortes.

HAPPY HAPPY

Le chien est mort.

JOY JOY

Son état est très mauvais.

HAPPY HAPPY

Il n'y a pas de traitement.

JOY JOY

Il ne peut plus marcher.

JOY

Il a perdu la vue.

And also this.

Je suis blond.

I typed exactly what he said, and it was marked wrong!

oraytoang payay ploos ong fronsong

The images are from the French course because that's what I've been focusing on the past few months.

One more thing: I shall give 50 lingots to 57 people who indicate that they want lingots in a comment below.

UPDATE: THIS GIVEAWAY IS OVER.

I gave away hundreds of lingots yesterday. I am not unable to get rid of them. I said that I would give 50 lingots to 57 different people, and that is what I am going to do.
