A thank you letter to every person whom contributed to DL in one way or another.

I thank every person who had contributed to DL, whether it's ideas, lessons, or even whole languages! The community which built this platform is the reason this is being held together, many people form around the globe contributing to keeping this website steady, despite what people may / may not like. The dedication that many people give to making new courses, those who bought PLUS, those who reported issues, and many more, have helped this language website keep growing. I can imagine that many people have gone somewhere due to this app, and that's because of our contribution to this website, and also to the many whom were dedicated enough to spend many hours learning, trying out new things, and just... Helping this website.

With Duolingo, I study German and Italian from English. Since all these languages are foreign to me, I am sure you won't blame me if I say I feel proud that I have suggested eleven translations that Duolingo now accepts as correct answers (seven for the German course and four for the Italian course). I am glad I was able to make my own contribution to this wonderful project. And of course, I want to use this opportunity to say a special 'Thank You' to all those people who created the two courses I am working on. You are fantastic, and I have been enjoying your lessons very much!

Laboratory, thank you for this post, and the contributions you make to this community, and also for this post.
And you have nailed it, that it is all of us that are the reason for the success of Duolingo.

To point out some of the more formal ways people contribute, another resource that is useful, and makes a difference to our community are those that Host community catchups. Checkout more about those here

To read a bit more about the different types of Global Ambassadors, check out this

And I also want to take this opportunity to do a shout out to the amazing staff who are so key to the resources and success to Duolingo. Those who give their skills to developing and maintaining this platform. It can not be sufficiently said how amazing they are. For also many of them, this is so much more than job that they are paid for. Their seeking of both quality and providing this quality of these resources for free for learners is also the backbone of what allows us as a community to provide the reality of this dream.

Thank you each and every one of you staff members !

It is also one of my honors in life to have the opportunity to also get work with you, to know such amazing and passionate people. And something I am continuing to look forward.

And then there is this community, this world wide community that interact and learn languages. Thank you each of you who do this for the benefit of yourselves and in a way that is of benefit to others. For those that choose to not just follow our guidelines, but do so in the spirit of those guidelines.

Those that also hold their peace when, as we are world wide community, that someone says something inappropriate. Thank you for down voting inappropriate comments, and also not responding to people who say inappropriate things. For when we do that, we can give people who have inappropriate intentions more fuel to carry on with further comments, and also they can feel rewarded and justified for their behavior. So thank you each one of you who chooses to not interact with people who act inappropriately.

And even more so, thank you each of you who DOES interact with people who are seeking to learn another language, or more effectively use Duolingo. You are changing the world for the better when you do these things. Thank you for this great gift, every one of you.

Thanks.

By the way it should be "who" not "whom".

True, but really

September 21, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Usagiboy7

The9, an interesting thing I read recently, "whom" appears to be on it's way out of contemporary English. (I can't recall if the article just meant American English or the wider English speaking world though.)

Also, I am not meaning to embarrass anyone. Just was reminded suddenly about the article and thought I'd mention it in case anyone was curious.

Think about the effect on the world as a whole when you give so many people the ability to understand each other better.

For some reason I have no spoken lessons :'( The sound is always back in an hour but never does come back . My Spanish is getting better

September 23, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Usagiboy7

Hi Murphy2u,

I recommend checking the Help page. If you don't find an answer there, at the very bottom of the Help page are links to the Troubleshooting forum and a bug report form. I hope you can get it resolved! If not, Just make it a habit to say everything out loud as you go through the sentences. I actually turned off my mic in my settings a few years ago and do that. It ended up giving me more verbal practice that way anyhow. Good luck! :)
