Same sentences again and and again and again in Dutch!

I love Duolingo to bits - and it is really helping me learn! Ik houd van Duolingo - en het steunt me te leren!

But if I see one of these sentences again I will scream or cry:

  • Some newspapers are important
  • The woman has no apple, lemon or lime
  • Are you going too? (in fact all of the sentences in the Conjunctions module - I see the same ones "he runs until he is strong" etc - over and over)

Also - if I ever actually see a neushoorn or a schildpad I will be sure to point at it and name it - but it seems unlikely.

Do you see them all the time in "Strengthen Skills" by any chance? I always see the same phrases every time in there.

Well you see a schildpad every time you do the audio exercises in Duolingo. ;-)

I know exactly how you feel. I "strengthen skills" but it seems like the same old stuff pops up a lot. And then there are words I haven't seen in weeks, and I'm wondering why those ones don't need strengthened.

It also happens a lot with koeien, katten and olifanten. Seems like the Duolingo people love animals ;) (and newspapers, 'cuz there is ALWAYS at least one sentence with krant/kranten in every single unit lol and most of them are with het meisje or de meisjes, apparently girls love newspapers :p )
