Curry ... and salad ? In the same meal? I have reached a venerable old age and have never encountered this. Aren't they opposites or something?

That's probably the joke...

i keep seeing references to "notes". what notes? i've never seen any notes??

They're not available on the app, only on the website. After you click on a topic, you get a page showing the lessons and below them are the notes.

I thought this could be "I got a curry" in the meaning "bought", but I guess it can't?

So what governs the addition of "mi" in a sentence? Would "ges i gyri a salad i swper" also work, with the elided "mi" being understood?

North vs South - the notes for the lesson explain it. Mi ges i is North and Ges i is south

"a curry"? That's not English

It is in these parts:

  • Can we have a curry tonight? Good idea, and you can do a side salad to go with it.

It's English in England. "Fancy a curry tonight?"
