I was tempted to say the same.. unfortunately it translates to "IT is Duolingo".. I feel a kinda frustrating sensation for not sayin "this is duolingo".
"This is Duolingo" would be "Das ist Duolingo", but yes, it is kind of frustrating.
Modern Germany is very infatuated with the English language and Latin based words. Typically if a new word comes up and is of English origin, Germans will keep it the same. An example is the switch from saying "Americanische fußball" to simply calling American football "Football" with a German accent.
Duo is the Latin root for 2 and lingo is the root for language so it roughly translates to double language
Its the name of the app. I think by duo it means like yiu will speak two languages.
Annoying sentences as from context you'd always want to say "This is", rather than "It is"..
Got this one wrong because I had no idea what the guy was saying when he said "Duolingo." sounded like "Dalingwa" or something
In English you can you the words it and this innerchangeably does this work in German too?
I was wondering the same thing. Are it and this not interchangeable? What would the sentence be in German if it was This is Duolingo?
"it" and "this" are not interchangeable.
"this" introduces something new to a conversation by metaphorically pointing at it.
"it" is a personal pronoun and refers back to something you had already spoken about previously.
"This is Duolingo" = Dies ist Duolingo. or Das ist Duolingo.; a bit more colloquially also Das hier ist Duolingo.
Thanks for your answer, and I wanted to say thatyou're really brave, learning all those languages...
When I answer Duolingo, it"s wong; when I answer dueling, it's wrong. Was gibt?
Is "Es" really pronounced like that, or is it the same as "Er" pronounced like "air"?
I wrote It is Doulingo and it came back wrong I tried This is Doulingo and it still came back wrong What is it then?
Hey, i'm not really english, but does "that is duolingo" normally works ?
How can i set the fast speech cuz most of the time slow speech goes first its annoying
I accidentally typed in english, instead of german kudos to the developer who made a provision for this case!!
