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

YOU ARE A PIRATE, YEAH! DO WHAT YOU WANT 'CAUSE A PIRATE IS FREE!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/stingerbee12

Just noticed that whenever you give someone a lingot, instead of the heart image, they replaced it with the actual lingot image.


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

Had to test it! I liked the hearts better.


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

Wow! Now I can watch zombie movies and understand all those grunts!


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

Yeah and now I can think of a real job as a pirate some day.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SD-77

You saying that is completely incongruous with your profile pic XD


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

=.= Dont judge a book by its cover. I will be the best pirate ever


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SD-77

Buona fortuna! :D


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

I guess a course for Gibberish would be the best though. ;) Because everyone on Duolingo would be able to contribute to it! ;) Ja‘um dê sooky mo‘apû Gibberish bukuhasa rêjê zosû‘e. ;)


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

Gibberish for Russian speakers, spanish speakers, english speakers, etc. Everyone can speak gibberish! ;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SabrinaPerez24

I love Snape <3 :D


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

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

    Damn, I want to play that now!


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

    Lovely prank! Do you think I should apply for the Lolcat course? I'm quite fluent with it. ;)


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

    Yeah why not? I was trying to talk to the contributor of that course, but seems that they no speak anglais :v. So you probably have to write the application form in lolcat language


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

    Lol, I guess I'll have to do that ;)


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

    My application: teh hommins r stoopid. dey hav 2 lern lolcatz. if dey lern lolcatz den dey wil b able 2 comunikat wif us.


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

    I should apply for Lolcat too.


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

    The more the merrier ;)


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

    What is Lolcat, exactly? When I saw the flag I thought it might be cat language (which would be funny) but then I saw your application... I don't know.


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

    Also, are they actually going to make those courses? or is it just a prank? just not clear


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/seby1607

    It's just a funny prank


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

    AHOY! Ya know, now I'll take me grog and sail t'seas! Arr, Duo! :)


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

    Love it! And (semi-) seriously, the Pirate course needs to make some great progress so it will be ready before International Talk Like a Pirate Day! For ye scurvy landlubbers and those mateys who aren't familiar with this beloved International holiday, that's September 19th.


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

    I'm not sure if they're serious or if it's an April Fools joke. Also, they should add ghost. I would so be a part of that.


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

    Woo woooooooo wo woooo?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/seby1607

    Woooo woo woooooo wo !


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

    They should actually complete these courses.


    [deactivated user]

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

      I applied to Lolcat.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mhtardis21

      How did you apply? (Or do you mean the you applied to help make it? )


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

      [deactivated user]

        As the resident ninja, pirate, chef, who is also a neko but not on this type of site, I feel that I must sing us a song. I can't though so here is the song I would have sang: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=no-aK-goln8 Enjoy it's piratiness!


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

        As fun of an April fools day joke it is, I really hope they put a real language up for this week. Every week one of the main things I have to look forward to is seeing what language will be put in incubator next and I would be sad if Pirate, Zombie, and Lolcats is all we get this week. please let it be Esperanto! :-)


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Airrifle4894

        Arrr, that be pleasin' t'me ears!


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

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

        Classic! Je l'aime ! :-)


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

        Lol cat wuld be pretty fun to lern. Considering that teh cats wil rul teh wurld somday.


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

        I agreez. Hole-hartadly.


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

        I like cats...................................................................wut?


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

        I'd actually love the pirate one. I really think Duolingo should go a bit further than the usual languages, ... what about morse code? Could totally see morse code being done on here. What about teaching dialects and accents, like Scottish? Heck, why not teach Klingon or something. Would be kewl to learn some slightly different and fun things.


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

        I think Klingon is actually on the list of the languages that will be added. They've mentioned it multiple times and in the preview image when they first announced the incubator the image of the flags included the constructed languages Esperanto and Klingon.


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

        That would be cool. I'd love to check out Esperanto.


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

        Or they could do something really different......like Cat-ese!!!!!! Meow meow mew, purr meow mrrp!!!!!!!!!!


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

        oh that would be so funny...mrrp.


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

        I'd like to see Tolkien-like Elvish!


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

        I'm sure that will eventually be added to. Elvish and Klingon have been a bit of a running joke because they will eventually be up there, but in one talk Luis said that the language they have requested the most by far is actually Esperanto, and he doesn't know what to make of that lol.


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

        Right, Esperanto would indeed be a good idea.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jorma1998b

        April fools! [pasela por inocentes]


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

        It's the afternoon of April 2, now. Reality calling. We'd like the prank spots replaced with real language courses, please.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cupcakes2020

        Hss, I ams zee best! Theez eez coolzies!


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

        I might make a stupid question (not really odd for me) but what is that exactly? I mean are they real languages?? I'm sorry if I'am asking something dumb but I don't get it.... :/


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

        they're just pranks


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/yahoo3579

        Awwwwwwww! I wanted to learn all of them!


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

        The links still work in February 2020...


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

        Doggo for English speakers!

        So that the hoomans can do the doggos a understand.


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

        They should do Mudkip as their next prank!


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Erven.R

        So the Moderators in the Pirate course are Cody and Coco, aren't they the dogs of Duolingo


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

        Arrrrgg! Guuuuunguuaaaaa!


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

        I don't get it... why someone would want to learn such "languages"? do they have some real practice in the current world?


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

        its an April Fools joke. Also, it would be a conversation topic at parties.


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

        I think it would be kindof awesome to have a 'standardized' version of pirate that people could practice and code-switch to when they wanted.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/yahoo3579

        yes. u cud lern it and rite and speek in da langage fer code.


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

        I think pirate is a good idea. It may be related older English...


        [deactivated user]

          The pirate that you think is pirate is actually a West British accent from a guy cast in a Disney movie. Pirates came from all over the world. Even my wonderful Ohio, touching no Oceans, has and had pirates!


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

          Yes! I can finally pursue my life's dream job as a professional zombie!
