LATIN - poor vocabulary
I love the course and I'm grateful that Duolingo offers it. HOWEVER I have to point out that most of the vocabulary is pretty useless for anyone who wants to speak the language. I mean, what's really the use of learning ''the sear fills the dirty bathtubs'', ''the drunk parrots are angry'' or ''the weasel doesn't know how to write"? It may be funny, but if you squeeze the content of the entire course, there's actually very little that you can use to communicate or even read a basic text. I'm a bit disappointed, I have to be honest. Still, better than nothing, I guess.
As a biologist, "parrot" and "weasel" are important words for me, and I'd imagine that vets (who need to know at least some Latin in many countries) will see it the same way.
And I'm willing to forgive all the words for sanitary and water related things, since the Romans were (rightly so) quite proud of their plumbing and their water pipes.
Besides, it's not that likely that we'll find ourselves having to use Latin out in the real world, so the excentricities make the course fun.
