Support is terrible maybe you can help

I don't have sound or a microphone at work and this is the only internet access I have. Is there a way to skip these parts without it affecting my score?

If you go into your settings (http://www.duolingo.com/settings/account) you'll see that you can turn off your speakers and microphone. You'll want to do that. You can still use Duolingo at work :)


You can follow the instructions of kristinemc to turn off the sound from the settings so that you can use duolingo at work whenever you have free time, but I recommend you find some place (like an internet cafe of a public hotspot if you have a mobile device) to practice with the sound turned on whenever you have the chance. Listening, and speaking is a very important part of learning a new language.
