Hebrew mobile: Todah!
I opened the Duolingo app to practice my fallback language choice....and I found myself in the Hebrew Duolingo page!!! What a surprise. Yeeeeeee-haaaaaa! Todah rabah lachem xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx!
I have noticed apps are frequently slower to update on Kindle Fire - not just Duolingo - but it's getting a little absurd at this point how far behind the Kindle version is. I deleted and reinstalled just in case, because sometimes the apps seem slow to notice an update, but nothing doing. It is a shame, I agree. I don't know where the fault lies, whether it's in Duolingo providing the update (because shouldn't it be the same as regular Android?) or Amazon being slow implementing it.
Is there a way to have my phone (android) automatically switch the keyboard to Hebrew when the mobile lesson requires it. I got to the second part of the lesson and then it stopped me because I don't have a Hebrew keyboard. I thought someone mentioned an app for duolingo that switches the input language for you, but I don't remember where I saw it.
I don't want to switch my input method every time it changes on me.
Just in case someone has the same question as me, I sorta solved it.
I changed my language and keyboard settings to make my keyboard bilingual. Then whenever I need to change language, I hold down the Swype logo on my keyboard (I use the Swype keyboard) and from there I am able to go to "languages" and select the other language. I did have to download Hebrew at the beginning.
It's a little annoying, but less annoying than changing the language on your phone, which doesn't even change the keyboard.
Hope it helps someone!
Yay! since duolingo has no coffee, let's have a lingot together. Here is mine, with frothed milk and no sugar. Any special wish?
P.S. Do you know that in Israel when you order a coffee they ask you: Nescafe or filter? If you say Nescafe they make and sell powder coffee to you!
Not a warning, just a curiosity...Powder coffee is just dead coffee brought back to life. You almost cannot distinguish it from normal coffee. And with that very charming name it makes you feel as if George Clooney flew in to drink it with you :-) No joke, and hey, the company there is always GREAT. You'll be very likely to be invited by random people for sharing a coffee and they will tell you many anecdotes and stories, and will philosophy with you about the purpose of life. My powder coffee in Jerusalem was the best coffee I ever drank!
