Yeah, this course really sucks without sound, especially since the language looks quite difficult to read. I will try again at a later date if they ever decide to add audio.

Later, you'll even learn how to say "I don't understand you."

Though even in the first unit, you'll learn nuqjatlh? which is probably even more direct. "Huh? What did you say?"

I don't know about this language. Is it real? Where is it from?

Depends how you want to define "real". This language was created for the fictional race of Klingons from the Star Trek TV shows and movies. They hired a linguist to create it and it has a complete grammar and large vocabulary. Though it is invented (or constructed) most linguists view it as a functional and real language. However it has no native speakers and it's expansion is still quite artificial. There are some people who are fluent in the language and many of them have proved that it is possible to function speaking only Klingon for extended periods. Perhaps it is not a practical language, since it won't help you speak with a native culture and only in very rare cases can help you get a job. Many of the best speakers already speak multiple natural languages and for those that don't already speak multiple languages it can be a wonderful introduction to how learning a foreign language works. It is a fascinating language and can be a fun hobby. Please check it out!

The Duolingo administration decided not to provide audio for the Klingon course at first (which has been true for a few of their more atypical languages). The Contributors and Moderators would love to add it and Duolingo is working on a method that might allow us to do it, but even when they add the ability, it's going to take us a long time to add audio for many of the sentences.

There is a Skill a little bit into the course which teaches the names of the Klingon letters and has a description of the pronunciations in the Tips & Notes, however, that skill also lacks audio. If you want to check out some ideas for learning the pronunciation, check out the thread at: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/26605745
