When someone says Duolingo to you

If someone says "Duolingo", what is the first thing that pops into your head?

When someone says Duolingo to me, I recall a memory of the time my Spanish teacher once asked me why I knew so many words about clothing in Spanish (during my spanish lesson concerning types of clothes). And once I told her that I used Duolingo she was like to the whole class (something along the lines of...) "Ahhhh, you just reminded me. My mum is trying to learn English using Duolingo and I was going to recommend it to you and all my other classes, but I completely forgot". And so, everyone in my year ended up using Duolingo to practice their French and/or Spanish. (A really random memory)

    Sorry, I can't relate, I'm the one talking about Duolingo to everybody, and they are like, "cool, I'm gonna try it" and I'm like, create a profile and follow me so I can make sure you really did it lmao


    ME, TOO! I've managed to get people to join, but they don't do anything! Either that or they say they'll do it and they don't.

      I'm reminded of the owl.


      When someones says Duolingo to me my first thought is "Oh no! I probably broke my streak!"


      Loool... I swear if that happens to me!!!!


      I remember green cutie owl ^^



      I am reminded that I am learning it. And most of the time I get excited! ;)

        When I hear "Duolingo", I think about the frustration of looking at my leaderboard and then racking up XP for hours to catch up. (>﹏<)


        Haha.... I feel you fam!! BTW - Well done for you're 100 day streak!! :D

          Thank you! ❤


          No problem!!! Keep it up :D


          Man : I see you had finished the common human languages,so why not you invent a new language?

            I've been thinking about it. If I do I'll let you guys know. (◕‿◕)


            I think of endlessly translating sentences with 'vino' and 'manzanas' in them.

            Why wine and apples comes up so often I have no idea. On the positive note when i head to Colombia and Ecuador next year I will have the ability to talking about wine and apples. I guess that's better then the wore out small talk on weather.


            Uh, French, Mandarin, and my Streak?


            Sure, why not hehe


            Unfortunately, once I hear " duolingo ",I remember the downvoting !


            My reaction is normally, "Contain your excitement. Try to be normal." :)


            First thought is a good place to learn languages, and I would say resource.


            I never hear anyone mention it... I wish I did... like if my phone would alert me that someone learning from their Duo App was in the proximity...? I WOULD SEARCH THEM OUT!


            What if the person was actually a kid in school using Duolingo Schools?


            I'm brand new to it tbh


            Good luck with ur German!!


            "Keep the green owl happy" is what I'm reminded of.

            you know how they notify you by gmail, reminding you to keep practicing? yeah, that's the main thing I think of. dont get me wrong though i think duolingo is a great tool

            and XD that's a funny story


            Italian tbh... that's all I'm here for


            I'll admit, when someone says "Duolingo," I just think of the Duolingo app.


            I think of two things: the "correct answer ding" and me in March 2015, back when I was new, doing the beginning German lessons and having fun with it. I was taking German 101 at my university then, so I was still basically a beginner and Duo really helped me.
