Bot Talk

I LOVE the bots but at times get stuck trying to figure out an acceptable response that Duolingo likes. Anyone else solved this?

Hello, Judy! I'm afraid there are currently no "workarounds" for this, save for using the "Help me respond" function. It may feel elementary, but sometimes, there is no other way if what it is asking and what it wants is simply not in your field of thought. We are currently beta testing the DuoBots, however, and should hopefully roll out with improvements to the system soon after more diagnostics are collected and more tests are conducted. To the future! Best of luck to you in your current and future endeavors. =) (Also, I completely get where you're coming from. I can't get the first sentence of the Valentine's Day interaction to take for me.)

Unfortunately, I haven't, other than the "help me respond" area (but that has its own frustrations because it doesn't count it as a good answer point-wise even if you already said something similar).

Believe me, I wish I had an answer. This problem is the main reason I no longer use the bot chat feature; it just doesn't help me learn like I wish it did, and like I was really hoping it would when Duo released it. I am aware that different people learn differently, and this makes me hopeful that the bots might actually help some people, so I'm slow to complain. However, I agree there seems to be a problem

Thanks to all and heck, I didn't know there was a 'help me respond...' will go hunt it down. These are great and I can see will be more valuable as they continue testing.

Ah, yes on the Valentines question and I couldn't figure out a similar respond on Happy New Year!

If I might help with duobots, please let me know. judy@judyrobinett.com
