No. But don't tell the yanks or you'll be able to spot the flotillas from Dún Laoghaire in the morning!
Is there an audio error on this? I can't make out what the audio is saying, but it doesn't seem to match the text.
I don't quite get why almost every Duo course teaches you 'oil', favouring it over more common foods.
That's what I'm saying. It's not an uncommon 'food' for everyone. I'm not sure what your point is.
My point is that it's not a common drink for everybody so why is it being used as a drink for every single course?
Sure, depending on the language, it could be common in the country of the course, but I'm sure not every country that has a language taught by Duolingo as its most common language drinks tons of oil.
I was just pointing out another of the strange things about Duo. There was no deep point here and I have no idea why it's a big deal. If you want to continue to assert that oil is the best drink ever I'm fine with it, but I'm just saying that it's odd that 'oil' is one of the first foods learned in every course.
Does anyone drink oil? That just sounds unpleasant. But as it has previously been pointed out, most dishes will require some oil at some point in their preparation. Fried foods (e.g. McDonalds) will require a lot more.
So what you're saying is because it's not common for you, they shouldn't have it? It's a big, varied world out there you know. If it weren't for the spelling of your name, I'd think you were American. I'm not saying that it's the best drink ever or even that it's a drink. I'm saying it's very common in many countries but I suppose if your idea of a good meal is a McDonalds then, yes, you probably haven't encountered much oil.
