Klingon is so hard, coming from a beginner learner.

February 25, 2020



Klingon is very different from English and that can make it very difficult for English speakers at the beginning. However, the grammar is pretty logical and consistent with very few irregularities. It's actually a pretty easy language once you get used to the differences. Keep at it and you'll get it.

Duolingo has Tips which can help a lot, but they have sort of hidden them, so I want to make sure you know about them and where to find them. If you have not been reading the Tips, I would like to ask that you review those.

If you are doing the course on iOS or Android, you cannot currently access the Tips through the app. To access the Tips, you will have to access the course using a web browser at https://www.duolingo.com/. You can still do it on your mobile device, but you will have to use the web browser instead of the app (or you can do it from a computer). When you click on a Skill, it will expand to reveal a large Start button and a large Tips button.

If you click on the Tips button it will reveal the Tips and give you a detailed explanation of the grammar that is introduced in that Skill.

If you have questions after reading the Tips for any Skills, we are happy to answer your questions, but many of your questions will probably already be answered in the Tips.

It is. But which lessons have you completed for it shows that you haven't completed a Klingon lesson?


I stumbled upon this and it was eye-opening to see the course from the perspective of a completely new learner. There is so much in the Tips and Notes, and the poor guy is seeing bIyaj'a' torgh and saying "blydja torg" through no fault of his own. At least we have sound now.
