Duolingo Memes...

So in my French class, we incorporate Duolingo (I'm one of ldunn288's students) into our daily French and I gotta say, I love Duolingo.

To display my love for Duolingo, I've decided to make some Duolingo memes that I'm sure everyone can relate to. This one was my very first one. http://i.imgur.com/vwlSvPz.jpg . You have to relate to this one at least once in your Duolingo lives.

Using http://memegenerator.net/ (I am not paid to advertise this website), make some memes and post the links here! Share the Duolingo struggle/love with fellow Duolingo students and laugh as we relate to each other in such ways.

Happy meme-making! :D

    The first one is so true for all of the languages I study. Sometimes I will talk to my cat in Japanese.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/The6thKid

    I tend to slip into German every once and a while.

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

    This is the most funny discussion ever made!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rainbow.K.Chen

    Thank you very much! :)


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

    I miss the xp bar, bring it back. sacrifice coach if you have to. no hacks please.


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

    This is one of my favorites. I love it!


    [deactivated user]

      This may be ironic but, have a lingot.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-Attimon-

      Same. Here ya go.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tbot360

      Haha! that's soo true!


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

      HAAHAHHA oh man these memes are so great


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Eey91

      Hahaha this is me in vacations.


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

      Now we need a SHARE button to repost these to our own Duolingo walls! :-)


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

      You are able to post images. ![](your image's url here)


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

      I appreciate the advice, of course. But my meme is about how easy it is to learn on DL, versus how counterintuitive is the process for learning to add images. It's not easy to figure out, and even when some helpful person like you offers advice, it is easy to misunderstand:

      What works, follow Lenkvist's advice literally.

      Do not remove anything -- leave in the exclamation mark, brackets, and the parentheses. At first I removed the exclamation mark thinking it was only there to allow you to display executable code. Then I tried removing the parentheses because I thought you only added them to set off the instruction to add an image URL. Then I tried variations on those themes.

      It would be much, much easier for DL to include a button that users could click to add images. A small add image button that shows up along with save and cancel. It would ask for the URL and then spit out the code in-line for you.


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

      The discussion section used to be quite serious at the beginning. People would have very long discussions about the website and nobody cared about having images because they didn't add anything to their writing. The discussion section might be a bit different in that sense from other forums. You don't really need images to explain language questions so I personally wouldn't miss them. Sorry for the disappointment. There are certainly areas where the forums are lacking but I don't think that will change any time soon.


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

      No worries. It was after all, just meme-fodder. :) Lingot for all the help, though. (Ever think the plural of lingot should also be lingot? After a short while one is as good as several as good as many.)


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

      I agree that it could be made easier--but so could many things in the forums. In the meantime: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=markdown+language


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

      Should be a meme for that. ;)


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

      I tried but couldn't get "you spend hours learning a language...but markdown language is too hard?" to not sound mean.


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

      No worries. I did that search myself a long time back. When I was trying too hard to learn how to add screenshots to troubleshooting threads.

      While it was not hard, it was a waste of my time then and now.


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

      Hey! I just happen to qualify! xD


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

      Your streak

      Is over 400!!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Iris_17

      I used to have the same Pusheen cartoon as my whatsapp ava for a long time:) (ok, random comment, but I'm happy I'm not the only one who can appreciate a book-reading cat;)


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

      Well, I love cats and reading :3, that Pusheen "me llegó al corazón" (touched my heart?)


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

      Haha thats a throw back :D


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

      For those taking the dutch course - his grandfather is a sheep


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/M.Dantes

      I'd love to see this discussion as a showing of controlled and appropriate humor based on language learning. Perhaps we can push ourselves to be clever in a way that won't make any user feel "uncomfortable" as is stated in the Duolingo guidelines. Hoping the moderators will help determine and take into accounts what it takes to make "all" users comfortable (and help remove those things that don't fit that criteria. Let's think of young language learners as we engage in some good clean fun!!!


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

      Aw I miss the XP bar...


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

      I still have the xp bar (and i'm hoping that after this AB test everybody gets it back). I just miss the old serif font where accents were far more noticeable,


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

      That must have been before my time, but I quite like that. Stronger colour contrasts.


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

      That was even before my time.


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

      A true relic, then. Can you decipher its ancient symbols, Professor? :P


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

      Those ancient symbols are still Spanish. xP


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

      Aaaah... Who'd've guessed? :P


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

      Aw, I'd forgotten about the little puzzle pieces!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Martijn-J

      Puzzle pieces?? What are they?


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

      Number of sentences translated.


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

      Nice. I really liked that design. Wandering through the maze was fun.

      Did you save that screenshot or find it online?


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

      I found it online using Google images. I think the previous Duolingo´s design was very nice and artistic, It remembered me a bit the pixel art style.


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

      I'm crying right now :') That picture brings back too many memories.


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

      Awwww! hugs and gives you ice cream I never saw that map. I've been here for 3 years, I think.


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

      I actually remember this... I didn't use Duolingo as much back then. Ah, the good old days.


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

      Ah, the good old days.


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

      I agree. those were good times.


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

      That ALWAYS happens to me! I think I've found the reason for my only 2 day streaks!


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

      Molto buona. Hahaha


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ME2300

      Yes! Every dang time!!! :D


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

      Okay, I know this post is kinda old but I could relate to it.


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

      Thank you. No, really, merci beaucoup. :P


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

      Boss: Ah, so what languages do you speak?

      Me: Fluent French

      Boss: Oh! Billingual, I see! Tell us some examples!

      Me: uhhh.... le chat mange une orange?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/M.Dantes

      Anyone have ideas as to how to most easily upload our own images for meme creating so we aren't limited to the limited database at memegenerator? Suggestions appreciated!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rainbow.K.Chen

      Google is a learner's best friend!

      There's always another meme generator/editor out there, but memegenerator is one of the easier websites to create memes with. Also, you could just use photoshop to generate some of your own custom memes.

      These are just some ideas I know of, but I'm sure there are more creative people out there.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LittleHannah.13

      The problem with using photo editors to create your own is that Duo won't let you post a picture directly, and the programs I have don't allow my to copy the image link.


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

      The code for displaying an image from a url is ![](your image's url here)


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/M.Dantes

      Appreciative of your help here! Also, I notice that in general you moderators do an incredible job of keeping this discussions civil and appropriate. As the classroom teacher of several students on this post, I'm just wondering if I can flag this post as one for you all to keep track of to make sure it follows proper protocol (although perhaps I'm doing a disservice to the work you guys do in assuming this wasn't already the case...just trying to be proactive so I can keep using this program as much as possible in my practice.)


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

      Don't worry, got you covered. :)


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/The6thKid

      I totally agree with you here, the moderators are keeping this site pure for younger people like me. :)


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

      Upload it to imgur and then post it here.


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

      3 all the way. All the way.


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

      My brothers teased me so much when they heard I was doing that :P


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

      I'm not sure #5 really applies. I experience #7 all the time with Danish.


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

      Eh it was a cute baby, but thanks.


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

      He's actually right, the 5th meme is Evil-Plan-Baby so a proper use of this meme is:

      6 and 7 are right on the spot haha.

      I like them all (great job!), but #2 and #7 are my favorites. :)

      I'd say 'Grazie', but . . . Ain't Nobody Got Time For That!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rainbow.K.Chen

      Well, considering the fact that you're a moderator...


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

      Well, that explains why I've never had a reply to the many reports I've logged, and as such I've given up reporting problems. Also, this morning I ran the code to check which A/B testing groups I'm in. I'm still trying to figure out which test this one is: report_messages_test: false. I just figured that I was in the group whose report messages got ignored. As I'm in most of the 'false' groups (other than the longer sentences and the more listen challenges groups - yeh me), I'd figured that I was on the outer in the Duo-sphere.


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

      I love you, man.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rainbow.K.Chen

      Duolingo moderators have the best relationships ever.

      You know I wasn't going to let that slide.

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/The6thKid

      So your doing french? Im the only kid in the sixth grade at my school that knows how to speak german.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Urnus1

      Meme about conjugation with some Doctor Who:


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Urnus1

      Another Doctor Who related one, but probably a bit easier for non-whovians to understand:

      DOCTOR WHO!!!!!!!


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

      A quick note to those contributing to this discussion. People have reported that some of the images posted caused uneasiness. Remember that there are younger people around (including the original poster) for whom certain content may be troubling.

      This is not meant as a sleight towards anyone as I am sure you were all posting with the best intentions. I hope you will continue posting humorous reflections on the Duolingo experience.


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

      I'm new. This is interesting! What do the little flags by someone's name mean?


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

      Those flags represent the languages you are studying on Duolingo.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MatildaSHA5

      i made one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


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

      Which one? I don't think the image went through on the post.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MatildaSHA5

      oh....................... how do you do it then? :)


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

      Old meme I did when the homocidal Duolingo was around. Why was that a thing again?

      test


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KevinGuo212785

      I made one thank u for sharpening that :D


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IzzyDaBoss3

      the duolingo bird scares me


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WelcomeToChilis2

      Duolingo is ve[r]y safe and there is no need to worry. The D[u]olingo bird is [n]ot real and cannot make you beg for your life in Spanish. The email thing is most likely just so they are able to send you messages to remind you to continue your lessons.


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

      Love this! My class and I enjoy looking at Memes in Spanish! I try to post sayings, jokes, movie trailers, music videos, and anything else I can think of on my Facebook page for students. (www.facebook.com/laprofesmith)
