"Kennen Sie Duolingo?"

Translation:Do you know Duolingo?

September 7, 2017



Duolingo? Nah, never heard of it.

I translated this as "Do you know about duolingo" because I think that would be more natural in English. I wouldn't say "Do you know ____" unless I'm talking about a person. Is translating "kennen" as "know about" correct?

I wrote "Do you know of Duolingo" (which was not tight according to Duolingo). English is not my mother tongue, but I would also accept "Do you know" to be used for persons only in English. Am I mistaking?

You know, I thought this was a joke at first, because the owl is 'Duo' so I thought they were referring to the owl. Interesting. Not quite sure. But yes, "do you know" should be with people only.

No, you can use "do you know" with things as well. e.g. "Do you know the movie Star Trek?", "Do you know the company?", or "Do you know where I can get my DNA tested?" "Yes, do you know Ancestry.com?"

In prior instances when this program used the abbreviation "Duo" in the audio, the full "Duolingo" was not pronounced.

However, in this question, Duolingo was supposedly pronounced.

When the speaker pronounced "Duolingo", it sounds like he suddenly began to mumble and did not pronounce the word clearly. Of course, my translation was marked wrong because I had no idea what was said at the end of the sentence when Duolingo was pronounced with a mumble.

While it is nice to use given names and names of companies in learning a language, given names or other names have little to do with learning a language especially if the name is not clearly pronounced in the audio.

Maybe omitting a name might cause fewer students to get an entire sentence marked wrong merely because of the name rather than an error in translation.

I translated it as "are you familiar with Duolingo" and got the green.

'Understand Duolingo?' . . . . . . ?

November 10, 2017


Ja, Ich kenne.

Stupid question but why is Do they know duolingo not correct?

September 16, 2017


Because "SIe" is capitalised hence can only mean Formal you.

Makes sense, Vielen Dank!
