  5. Die Spinne frisst eine Fliege…

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Olti0

Die Spinne frisst eine Fliege - OKKK I got itttt...

There is something wrong with Duo's algorithm. Why do I have to learn everything about spiders? In 10 strengthening exercises I got the same sentences again and again and again... the spider eats a fly, the spider eats a bee, the spider eats a beetle, the spider has eight legs, the spider is harmless... This last one was in every single exercise series..

DUO, what's wrong with you??

You're going through Spinnenallee. It eventually ends. Just keep swatting!

Apparently this is common, someone else recently posted something similar: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/15546181

It's always about moose in the Swedish course and turtles in the Norwegian course. I assume that each language has its own unofficial mascot. :)

which language are you learning?

Doesn't the sentence give it away: Die Spinne frisst eine Fliege?

I reinforced Animals 1 after three days of this madness and voila, it disappeared. So if you haven't done so already, you really ought to! Cheers. :)

I'll try that. Thanks.

It worked. I still wonder if every language has its own mascot though.. :). Thanks anyway!

I had a beetle streak.....boys liked beetle, cows had beetles, ducks ate beetles.......It made me laugh.
