Hello everyone,

I just want to give you another wonderful app that I came across this year that might help you while studying Duolingo. It's call http://www.funeasylearn.com/. I found the app in September of this year and it's pretty cool if you go to the website it will tell you more about it. It has a lot of different languages to learn from and it's a nice addition to Duolingo (in my opinion). It might not be for everyone one but at least you know it's there so enjoy!

My very favourite thing about this? I discovered it by accident because my iPad is set to Russian: you can use from a huge list of source languages.

I've been wishing for a while I had easy access to learn the Slavic languages via Russian in manageable chunks, so I can get the differences cemented in my mind rather than being confused by them. Lo and behold, I can now learn/review Ukrainian and Polish (and Croatian, though that's not yet available on Duolingo) vocab from Russian. Nice!

I still look forward to the day Duolingo brings out another Slavic language from Russian, but this is going to be a good addition to my routine. Thanks! Спасибо! Dziękuję! Дякую! Hvala!

Checked it out. No support. Comes from Moldova. Have to give your email address to get any information. No download instructions. Said it was downloaded but didn't give location, or name, of file to help with opening it. Searching my computer for the apparent name of the program (which isn't funeasytolearn) I couldn't find anything that remotely resembled what was supposed to be downloaded.

Pretty deep into a few glitzy pages of promotion I found a reference about it being Android. Perhaps it is intended for cell phones and certain tablets only. If so, it doesn't say a word about that on or around its download links. There are no help resources to check out if that is the situation.

I just downloaded it and did not have to give my e-mail address. The apps come from the Android or Apple Stores so will just appear on your device. The free versions come with annoying adverts but apart from that it looks very good.

Are you trying to download them to a laptop or PC?

As I said I am looking for the file which they say has been installed, on my computer.

If someone has any need to look for support information of any kind, you must give them your email address. Looking through several pages of extremely well done promotional material, I did not find anything indicating it is limited to some cell phones and tablets. I see that it mentions android but I have several android apps that work on Google Chrome on my computer. I just assume that anyone that offers something on the Google App store will mention up front if it doesn't work on many Google products.

I am not saying that the app is bad. Apparently, it works with some cell phone/tablets seamlessly. However, if anyone does run into a problem and find's the app's method of dealing with basic issues unsettling: ..you are not alone.

Looking at the website I can see the dropdown menu where it says Apps. You choose your language from the dropdown menu and it shows you clearly where the download App button is. It also has extensive explanations of the features.

I am not sure why you said you have to give email address because that is kind of standard these days with most free (and paid ) web applications.

Maldova is a country just as our dear UK or Germany.

Maybe you should contact them. It may be your location is not compatible with the site. http://www.funeasylearn.com/contact-us/

I thought about contacting them but I just don't like giving my email address to Moldova. Especially if it is about basic things like what is the file name after downloading.

Like I was saying...it says the program is installed. I just don't know where or what to look for.

Moldova is not a country just like UK or Germany.

In September, a hundred thousand demonstrators blocked the exits of their parliament for hours until they could see their prime minister being arrested and handcuffed on the legislative floor, for fraud. The fraud in question was a banking scam. It resulted in the theft of one eighth of the value of the entire economy of Moldova. The authorities are widely regarded as not only being part of it but also being in a leadership position in carrying it out. Even the organization leading the protest against corruption offered a mercedes car to any police officer who would arrest the prime minister.

Any Moldovan will tell you both the private and public systems are corrupt. The reformers themselves are corrupt, openly using corrupt practices to remove the current scammers . Of course, there are many fine Moldovans but they function in a system which even they acknowledge is hopelessly corrupt and from which there is no appeal.

Worse luck for the good people of Moldova but I won't be sending any of my personal information in that direction. I simply don't care about the politics of it either way enough to bother. Naturally others feel differently and have no hesitation about sending them personal data. I commend them for it.

If I might offer a commonsense solution; it's the work of less than five minutes to create a new email address for free on gmail, yahoo, etc, which will enable you to contact anyone you should like without ever giving them personal information. You could very easily circumvent the necessity to give out such information, and get any help you require, without risking your scruples in dealing with Moldovans. It ain't rocket science!

Political problems don't stop a country from being a country. If that case, the world would just be a giant amalgamation of people with no definite lines of demarcation, as EVERY country has its problems.

> Political problems don't stop a country from being a country.

But they can stop a country from being just like UK or Germany, which are countries you can feel fairly confident about doing business in.

The government does not define the people within it. There are plenty of Republicans in congress, but they don't define me; why should it be the same in any other country?
