Duolingo featured on SNL
Duolingo was parodied on this weekend's Saturday Night Live hosted by actress Kristen Stewart.
This took us all by surprise, but some of us felt like we could relate...
And guess what was spotted in the Incubator yesterday...
Even if Duolingo actually wanted to, I don’t think that this would work. Phrases that children and teenagers use change so frequently that you can’t get a proper guide to compile them unless it is constantly being edited, such as Urban Dictionary. For example, approximately 5 years ago if you had asked a teenager what the phrases “What are those?, What’s 9 plus 10?” and similar equivalents, most could tell you what they meant (excluding various places- most slang and child/ teenager phrasing is based to some extent on the internet, and not everyone uses it for the same things. However, it is a reasonable assumption that these sort of phrases change or are substituted for others over a matter of months regardless of where you are). Nowadays, these are much more obscure.
Duo never stops teaching me things.
And I asked, " cool flossing " ? How can that be a thing ?
So I searched again, and found this:
What can I say now, and know what it means ?
Obviously I also would benefit by this ;P
Once upon a time, in my childhood I spoke child.
However since then, the language seems to have changed quite a bit.
Though some of the old forms seem to work, there is a lot of new terminology and culture for me to catch up with.
So I am not the one to ask.
We need to find an expert in Modern Child.
And I am soooooo looking forward to the release of this course
I hope also we can encourage the community to create some embellished resources, and share them with the community, so that they could also assist me in learning how to speak in Modern Child.
Ideally to talk about it in this discussion post.
