The bots seem to have stopped short (in French) - maybe they've run out of subjects? How about a series of how-the-French-live or how-Francophones-live bot conversations?

  • Putting out the bins - recycle bins, how often they're collected, is it municipal or companies, do French people recycle more or less, plastic packaging, whether rubbish goes to landfill or for incineration or for recycling, bottles and other glass, recycling old electric items, whether charities take clothes or old phones, etc…

  • The supermarket - oh, looky, Monoprix has electronic prices on the shelves so the item and price listed can be changed at the click of a remote! lots of vegetables from remote places; look how almost everything is produced in France, do you like yogurt? how many cheeses? At the cashdesk, what do you say and what does the clerk say? Paying and getting change, or paying with credit or debit card.

  • The shops - French institutions like Monoprix and Darty and Fnac and Tati and Samaritaine…

  • Moving in - you're renting an apartment; does it have a cellar for your bike, a washing machine (or is there a laundrette around the corner), a dishwasher, wardrobes, double and single beds, the French style of windows opening out, shutters, window boxes, where do you get your mail, how do you work the fob to open the door, or give your friends the access number…

  • Going to the laundrette - what on earth do all these instructions mean! How do you buy detergent, set the machine and then the tumble dryer, how do you ask for help?

  • Going to a concert - do the seats have numbers - where do you want to sit? What kind of music? Can you buy a CD of that band/orchestra? What kind of crowd is it?

  • Going to the country - buying the train ticket (single or return), getting out at the station, getting a taxi, phoning the landlord when he's not there to meet you, learning where the light switches and sockets are, and that the toilet has a fiddly flush…

  • Problems with the TV - there are three zappers, which do I use for what, and what are all these buttons? How many channels, and what do they show? How do I find subtitles! Can I play DVDs?

  • Renting a bicycle, and the laws on how to cycle - is this a cycle path? Do I have to use it? Can I cycle on the pavement? Can I join the Velib' scheme for a few days, and how does that work? Using an app to find out where the nearest bike stands are…

  • Buying a SIM for a few days - sending all your friends the number, but saying TEXT ONLY! Downloading and using apps - what apps are useful for visiting France, like the free GPS maps that will guide you around and speak the names of streets, and the public transport apps that give train and bus times, and news apps, and Bison Futé if you're driving…

  • Gardening - flowers or vegetables; what size plot; clay or sandy or friable soil; spade and trowel and fork and dandelion weeder; the lawn; which flowers will you grow? compost, soil amendation; flowerbeds; climate and microclimate; watering; pot plants (and flowerpots); pests - weeds and snails and slugs and greenfly; saladier and herb garden…

  • Job interviews - introduction, CV, experience, the boss, the HR manager, the receptionist, your co-workers; your papers - social insurance, work permit, visa, proof of qualifications; does the job include housing; you will be paid a monthly/weekly salary; hours of work, entitlement to holidays, sick pay, maternity leave…

  • Going to the doctor - sick tummy, fever, headaches, tired all the time, coughing, sneezing, aches and pains in the bones; virus, bacterial infection, accident, broken wrist; need a recommendation for a dentist, an optometrist; prescription, where to get it filled, take two tablets a day, suppositories (eeek!), liquid medicine, a tonic…

  • The dentist: open wide, this may sting a little, left back molar, white fillings, extraction, root cana - you'll need an orthodontist: bracesl, crown; social insurance…

  • The optometrist - look at the chart; is the spot in the centre or in the green or red half; different lenses - is that stronger or weaker; type of frames; bifocals, multifocals, contact lenses, laser treatment, lasik treatment…

  • Pets - walking the dog; the doggy-bag; collect the poo; what age is he, what's his name, is it a dog or a ❤❤❤❤❤, what breed, I have a collie, its colouring is black and white and yellow and… what is your favourite breed; puppy; vaccinations; leash; collar; harness; guide dogs; dogs in restaurants; dogs in apartments…

  • Going to the vet: kittens, tortoiseshell, calico, Siamese, Persian… vaccinations - distemper, feline flu, FIV, rabies? - pussycat, here, kitty-kitty! - cat basket, travel basket, do she and the dog get on? - that lady's had her cat put to sleep… paws, tail, whiskers, claws, dew claw, claws trimmed, grooming…

  • At the beauticians - hair removal, skin tightening, softening, tanning, manicure, varnish, colours, cuticles, nail strengthener; pedicure, make-up - concealer, moisturiser, mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, lipstick - eyebrow tweezing, waxing, threading; throat, décolletage, styles of beauty…

  • Cooking - tarte Normande: tablespoons, teaspoons, grams, litres, flour, apples, chop, sugar, glaze… moules marinière: mussels, garlic, parsley, white wine, butter, simmer till mussels open, remove, reduce sauce, serve with crusty white bread… omelette: beat eggs, fold over, cheese… croque monsieur: grate cheese, melt cheese, toast… onion soup: cook onions till sweet and transparent… croutons, gruyère…

I got the email confirming I was in the test group - but it said I would be able to submit new answers and it would shake to let me know it was recorded...but I still seemed locked in to the default choices like usual. Is it based on fluency? I selected intermediate, so I suppose it might only let advanced/native speakers submit new answers? Or is there some option I am missing?

Bots is probably my favorite feature so I would love to help improve it.

February 10, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Der-Michael

Take a look at this (click here), it's about the German alpha test, but the same problem you face.

February 19, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/iSamuelHoffman

I did the exact same thing. But every time I try to say a new answer, it doesn't allow me.

February 25, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/IrishCyborg

I filled in advanced on the form but it didn't record my answers either.

February 21, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Ferret513

Filled out the form; I'd love to help!

(EDIT: Quick question: how will we know if we have been chosen to alpha test?)

February 10, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Der-Michael

You'll get an email confirming it.

February 21, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Ferret513

Oh, thank you, I found the email. It was in the wrong inbox so I didn't see it at first...

bots to help people learn ? genius ! but like many others I have android so it would be a lot better if you design the bots for all platforms . or even on site itself .

February 17, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/CarolPalko

I tried out the Bots just a few hours ago. I'm trying to learn French, one more time, and I think I might do it this time! The Bots provided me, a beginner, with the ability to feel like I was actually in conversation with someone. A bit frustrating in that the direction of where I wanted to speak was limited to the guided response that was being looked for. I have a little bit of French vocabulary from school days but wasn't able to use it. I came away from the Bot conversations feeling more confident that I could actually do it. Thanks! Looking forward to more chances to try it!

February 18, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Der-Michael

Is the test working for any confirmed testers or has nothing changed for you?

February 19, 2017

I like the Bots. I think learn through dialogue is the way to go. :-)

March 30, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Recisymone

I love the Duo Bots! It's pretty neat to "text" someone and practice my language

February 8, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/helenfwatson

this is great and all but there really should be bots for NON apple phones/tablets aswell. If you didn't know a lot of people (about half the world) can't afford a $700 iPhone or iPad. It would be a lot more convenient if all devices were able to use it.

February 9, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Der-Michael

They aren't choosing to not let android users have bots, they simply have many more developers for iOS. When more android devs apply and get hired, you're more likely to get the features and at a quicker rate.

I've filled out the form. It will be an honour to help!

February 6, 2017

Ditto. Not sure what I'm supposed to do - am I supposed to 'converse' back to the bot when it says a sentence?

yes my friend!!! I fully agree with you!

October 13, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/spongekupo

this has nothing to do with the topic but... are you taking ALL of the duo courses?! Wow!

May 8, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/RyanOkushi

Yes, I am. All of the languages possible from English, including Japanese, even though it's not officially released yet, and all of the languages possible from Spanish too, like Guarani and Catalan.

May 8, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/spongekupo

c'est incroyable. how do you find the time? here's a lingot to help maintain your impressive streak :)

May 8, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/RyanOkushi

Merci! (Although I really don't need Lingots anymore, since I have 1730. :P ) Gave you some in return.

And in response to Lewis_Fassero, there are much longer streaks. The longest right now is almost 1500 days now. Look here for more.

So cool

https://www.duolingo.com/Hsn626796

As Japanese has not hatched yet, how can you, and other people, practice its lessons ?

July 6, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/JamieF-jimmy

Do you practice them everyday.

July 17, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/RyanOkushi

No. I don't have the time to do all of them. But I do practice a little of a certain language for a while before moving on to another for a while. This is why I've never managed to get my Spanish to level 25.

July 18, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Speakercat101

I think it's also incredible that you have so many lingots and languages.

September 19, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/RyanOkushi

Thanks! I like trying out all of the languages, and the Lingots just build up after doing all the lessons and keeping streaks. I have a bit over 1820 now. You can also get them for posting good comments or discussions. :D

September 19, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/___sunshine___

OMG! Je suis calme, je suis calme... HOW CAN YOU SPEAK SO MANY LANGUAGES?! Pardon, je suis NON calme... (Translation for those who need it: I'm calm, I'm calm... - Sorry, I'm NOT calm...)

October 17, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/DrJones17

Wait, how are you getting Japanese? I've been searching around trying to figure out how people are getting early access. Still can't find anything though...

May 12, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/RyanOkushi

Sorry, I can't seem to find the discussion, but if I do, I'll send you the link. It has to do with some "inspect element" hacking."

May 12, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Der-Michael

You can also become an alpha tester for the Japanese course. That's how I I have it.

    February 6, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/CarolPalko

    I understand you love of your iphone 4. I had a iphone 3 that I had to trade in for a iphone 5 ONLY because it's operating system would not update to the newest iOS, thereby limiting me on what apps would load and work. Until that time enjoy your phone :)

    Or iPad. I've tried.

    May 3, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/Gracesen

    I love the bots! It's great for helping someone learn to use the right words when there's not a 'multiple word choice' type thing going on at the bottom of the screen. I like that you can still click unfamiliar words to get the definition and even get help on replies when you're not sure.

    March 24, 2017

    Is it only on apple mobil devices? I use Duolingo on my computer all the time and I cant find "bots"

    March 29, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/Searlasmane

    It's being tested out on iPhones and iPads; I'd guess (though I have no more information than you) that when it proves popular and successful (and if it's not too labour-costly to implement) it'll transit to the other forms of phone, tablet and computers.

    March 29, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/Smeetheens

    So it will never get off of iOS?

    April 12, 2017

    March 31, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/Smeetheens

    So I'm going to have to wait for: 1. This to come out on Android, or better yet, PC 2. This to come out for Swedish And that's assuming they don't cancel this, like they did for other helpful things Duolingo cancelled (like Immersion).

    i would like it if there were sometimes more ways to answer a question. but thats probably just more programming. so you go girl! thanks for providing such a great platform for free!

    June 20, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/solojones1138

    I would love to help evaluate bots. Hell, I'd love to even have bots. But they're still only available to iPhone owners, aka the richest people in the world. Duolingo continues to spit in the face of its poor and middle class users who don't have access to $800 phones, and would like access to this on their cheaper Android phones, or through the web.

    Only 12.5% of smartphone owners have an iPhone. No, that is not a typo. If everyone you know has an iPhone, you are a very privileged person. Good for you. But Duolingo was supposed to be about bringing free language learning to people who can't necessarily afford expensive things.

    So where are the chatbots for the other, poorer 87.5% of the world? You know, your supposed target demographic.

    July 12, 2017

    March 17, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/Searlasmane

    Rani, "an iOS app" means an app used on an iPhone or iPad, phones and tablets made by Apple (which use an operating system called iOS). If you have an iPhone or an iPad you can click on the Apple App Store icon and download the Duolingo app (called 'Duolingo') and use it on your phone or tablet. The bots are available on the iPhone and iPad version of Duolingo, where people are testing them out, but they're not yet available on Android phones or on the Web version of Duolingo used on computers.

    I have used the bots on my iPod touch. It's is a really great way to practice conversations. Any idea when it will be available for Android? I also noticed the overall layout of duolingo is much better on Apple products. I hope that changes soon also because Android is way better than Apple. Or at least make it available to use on a computer.

    Hey guys, my friend and I decided to make a YouTube channel to give the opportunity to everyone to learn French ! Ninon comes from France and I'm from Montreal. In each lesson you will get the chance to understand the concept of the video from both point of views ! Each aspect will be taught in Canadian French and French from France.

    Here is our YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/channel/UC0S8-ZGmy9UqN_BMoascH3A

    Bots are good to a point but leave a lot to be desired as a conversational tool because I have to anticipate what the bot expects me to answer. If I chose to answer in an unexpected way (for the bot) my answer is totally ignored and the bot continues as if I had not been there - even though I get "Great answer 2XP"

      I have been using the bots and I think they can be a cool tool to help feel like you are in a conversation. The disappointing part is they don't appear to react or respond to what you say. If they ask you a question, there is an expected rote response. If you don't give that response to them, they still just say "great...." and continue on with the rote conversation. It is hard to know if you mess up in conversation because there is no correction feature from what I can tell.

      By the way, it is so interesting to see the different options in different platforms; like clubs on android and ipad but no clubs on the web, or the magnificent timed practice on the web giving much more lingots for strengthening, which does not exist on android, etc.

      I like the bots a lot. I think it could be improved by adding the pronunciation feature. Sometimes there are new words in the chats and it would be nice if I could hear the pronunciation of the words when I go back and click on them. The definitions are available when I click on the words and it would be great to hear the pronunciations too.
