Once during a sociological study, they went to random people in the streets of four countries, and asked them the same question: "Excuse me, what's your opinion about the shortage in meat?"
In Moscow, the person asked back "What's 'meat'"? In New York, the person asked "What's 'shortage'"? In Beijing, the person asked "What's 'your opinion'"? In Tel Aviv, the person asked "What's 'excuse me'"?
Funny. People in Moscow are known to have meat shortages. New Yorkers are known for having access to just about anything. People in Beijing are known for having their opinions suppressed to the point that they might even forget what an opinion is. And people in Tel Aviv are known for being frank to the point of rudeness (or to the point of not having heard of politeness).
Wilma, how to get tips and notes (I use the first two ways):
organized by skill in one pdf for the whole course: https://www.docdroid.net/JnfmyEV/tipsnotesbackup.pdf (this was created by one of the creators of this course).
Replace your username where USERNAME is for information on your progress & the tips & notes: https://duome.eu/USERNAME/progress
The whole course tips and notes are here (and the site has one for each Duolingo language): ,organized by skill individually: http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Hebrew
You can also get them on the duolingo.com site (make sure your browser is in desktop view mode so you can see the other duolingo features like discussions & timed practice. From discussions you can search for all the discussions in this course (like this one you're reading, as well as see general duolingo discussions). If you can't see discussions on the main screen once logged into duolingo you're not in desktop view.
