I think I really confused Duolingo...

(Or else I inadvertently discovered German via English for Russian speakers...)

(Or maybe this is the dawn of Triolingo...)

Congratulations on discovering Triolingo: for those times when learning one language just isn't enough. ;)

Confusing Duo is always fun. This one time I got a French listening exercise so wrong it decided it wasn't even French XD

Oh, when it tells you you've written the wrong language, do you mean? I've done that. Kind of embarrassing xD

Yep! It came up with the "please write your answer in French" message. It was /in/ French, it was just really, really bad French XD

xD oops!

Usually I get that if I'm doing one of the Russian trees and I write in the wrong alphabet. but I have managed it a few times where I've written in the right alphabet, just so badly that Duo has gone "excuse me?" lmao. I feel your pain!

It may be just that Duolingo has not come out of April's fool mode. Or perhaps it was wanting to make Russian reach to you sooner than the Russian course :)

The latter would be fairly awesome. I'm going to try and see if it'll happen again today; more Russian in my life = good ;D

I think you just set the website language to Russian? By the way, how do you post images like that?

April 2, 2015

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

That's actually from the app. However, while I do set the website to Russian on a regular basis, in order to do the RU to DE tree, it doesn't ask me to answer the questions in English. There are three languages in that picture!

The code for posting an image is quite easy to find on google, this is the first time I've used it so I don't remember it off the top of my head.

That's from the app? Are you on Apple or Android? Because I still have the hearts on the app, which annoys me quite a bit...

Apple - it updated pretty recently.

Thanks, that gives hope for Android.

by the way if you have trouble finding the post that explains how to post an image, here's the link to a discussion that shows the formatting codes. https://www.duolingo.com/comment/2591660

Once you get the alphabet down it's just another language.

Depends on the individual. I started Russian and French at uni after 7 years of French (and a smattering of other languages) at school, and dropped French after my first year in favour of Russian, because I got on with Russian better.

The alphabet is probably the toughest part, but as someone who has had to take some Greek and Hebrew language study and done personal study on Russian, it isn't that difficult. All alphabets are just symbols, you just have to figure out what symbols go with what sound. Many are in fact similar.

The alphabet is so not the hardest part of Russian. It's one of the easiest parts.

It also happened to me. I think it was a sync issue in changing devices in my case.

Early in the day I had worked on my phone and left it on italian for English speakers. I then switched to my pc did some work and left it on german for English speakers. Later still I went back to my iphone and in retrospect it didn't automatically reset to the En->Ge but kept it on En->It. So I'm sitting there working on an italian strengthen skills and at the end of the lesson an italian sentence is followed by "Eine Blume". That was very disorienting... It ended up giving me points towards german even though 16 correct answers had been in italian.

I think that somebody just tried the famous Konami Code (↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → B A) on Duolingo... :)

April 3, 2015

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

Hahaha :D I had never heard of that before so I looked it up... apparently (at some point, don't know if it's current) if you plug that into the Marvel website, you get squirrel!Deadpool:

Not gonna lie, I love it.

Is this on a phone or mobile device? If I use Duolingo on my iPhone (at least last time I checked), because my iPhone is set to Chinese, the interface is in Chinese, even though I'm normally on the Spanish or French for English speakers courses.

April 4, 2015

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

It's on my iPad. I don't have my iPad set to anything besides English, so the interface language usually corresponds to the home language set here on Duolingo.
