The automated voice genuinely sounds excited. It makes me smile. ^_^

Looks so live! That's actually the way a woman says that in Brazil.

I know, me too! I keep replaying it lol. I love the way she says it. I wish more recordings on Duolingo were like this one.

It sounds ridiculously happy when it says 'parabéns' !

I know! Sometimes, in the Spanish course, when there is a sad sentence, the voice sounds sincerely worried.

Haha I was thinking the same thing!

I really like the voice of the lady that says all the greetings. Is it automated or an actual person's recording?

Olá >> automated. Parabéns >> real person. It's funny tho.

Why is it mixed? Automated and real person?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RickPotter16

It does really seem to be a real person talking when she says Parabéns. When Olá she doesn't seem to be real though.

What is the difference between "oi" and "olá"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nevermind98

not much, same difference as "hi" and "hello"

I love How she says Ola really dull, and says Parabens like it's her birthday!

Wouldn't "Hallo" written with 'a' be correct as well?


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

"Hallo" is German - the English equivalent is "Hello" (or "Hi").

"Parabéns" is also used to mean "Happy birthday"

Parabéns pra você, nessa data querida, muitas felicidades, muitos anos de vida!

Happy birthday to you, on this dear date, lots of happiness, many years of life!

This was translated literally, also, this sounds better in Portuguese than it sounds in English.

I accidentally said it in English, and it counted it right.
