Oh yeah, I should probably mention that, too. I'd like to send a special thank you to you (lindakanga), Lrtward, and Usagiboy7, the three main moderators I have seen in the regular English forum this year. And thanks to Songve for keeping us posted on his language adventure this year. And a welcome to all the new users who have poured in this year. 2018 has really been a great time for Duolingo. I can't wait to see how 2019 goes.

At one point, the teacher was asking us to do solos. Being the musical kid in the class I was called on twice, and I declined, twice.

I just looked at the new design from what lindakanga posted, duo looks obese. Not that I have a problem with that, but seriously he needs to cut down on his sugar, second I loved the "practice or he will eat a loaf of poisoned bread" perfect for getting 10 year olds to do their practice.

Ok, Duo. Maybe it is time to get on the treadmill.
