The owl cries every day, even though I practice almost every day. It's too difficult to meet the standard.
Pls make him cry less
@deNani, I totally agree the purpose of it. I just think that maybe the standard is a bit too high for some people. It makes little sense to have a goal that you cannot reach, and it may even cause frustration. Maybe it's better to make it flexible on how aggressive you want to be with practicing.
@Strong: Okay, these arguments are good . Maybe it's better to make the standard more flexible for all people. :) But, do you know? I don't watch every time at the owl. I'm learning for myself. The owl is a cute thing to make Duolingo for many people easier or ... funnier - i don't know. But YOU know, what you have learned. Thats all what you want, isn't it? To know that you have learn something, not only the owl shows... :)
Are you sure you are practising the way that the owl wants you to practise? I have found that choosing things to practise on my own doesn't change the owl's state at all, but when I click the button below the owl I just have to go through a number of questions and it's happy again.
