Sounds like the title of a novel.

What on earth would a spider do with an apple, though?

Maybe "spider" is a person's codename, or something alone those lines!

Sit on it and stare at you with its eight evil eyes.

Doesn't "spider" rhyme with "cider"?

written by A Webb ?

I think it is one of the silly things that Duolingo leaves to be done. A more logical phrase it would be: the ο ιστός της αράχνης. But we don't know the word ο ιστός=the web yet, do we? :)

Notice that I met this phrase in a strengthening exercise.

Where do I find a strengthening exercise?

It's the dumbbell icon on the skills page of each course.

Thank you so much for replying. Is that the same thing as lesson practise then...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/G.Georgopoulos

I realized that I have actually never used it, but yes, I think it's the same thing.

These kinds of unrealistic and also funny examples makes it actually worthwhile to read and understand the sentence rather than guessing it with the word bank. GJ I like it.

That's what I like about Duolingo: You can't just get away with guessing all the time! And it also brings a smile to my face...

How big is a spider who owns an apple?!


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

Who makes up these examples?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/G.Georgopoulos

Our team does, sometimes it's nice to create some unconventional sentences, so that the learners get to learn these new words faster ;)

Never seen a spider with an iPhone...! He hee!!!
