Duolingo Dreams

This site is dangerous.

Last night I had a dream. I found myself in a strange and seemingly very old city. People were milling about on the streets and all of them were chatting in German. As I sat on a bench, several people, whom I did not recognize, came up to me and began to talk to me- in German. The conversations were not complicated (as my current skill tree in German should indicate) but none-the-less I responded as per what I have learned here. As the conversations continued, I heard many strange screeching sounds coming from a nearby tree- where a whole parliament of green owls were perched excitedly on various branches, observing the goings-on with enthusiasm. Then I woke up.

Obviously, this must mean that Duolingo has some sort of subliminal mind-altering aspect to its program and as such should be considered a controlled substance. I wrote to my Congressman this morning reporting this incident in the hopes that he will introduce legislation to thwart Duolingo's attempts at world domination. I will need support in this from the rest of you- please contact your local authorities and tell them about the insidiously addictive site known as Duolingo. We must unite if we are to triumph against this emerging internet polyglot evil!

I tell people about Duolingo everywhere I go. I'm in the Army, and because of me, I know of at least 14 people who started using the apps. I think it's great people are getting out there and learning languages. Being more worldly is a great way to unite us all.

Are you making this up as a joke?

The dream is not a joke- it really happened. Did I actually contact my Congressman? I'll never tell.
