It's quite fun to hear some of the exotic ones :D. 850 on the first try, thanks to a bit of luck on some occasions, and also thanks the ability to distinguish between slavic languages, because there were quite a few of them :).

Lost because of Maori, Kurdish and Welsh :S

fun game :D 750 had to guess from some of the sounds which area of the world they were from, which is strange because scots gaelic almost threw me but in some ways it sounded like Welsh so I got that one.

O yeah defo, on scots gaelic sounding like welsh:) ( first language welsh speaker here ) probs cause all the voiceless uvular fricatives (same basic sound as the french 'r':), They're from the same language family ( along with Irish, Manx, Breton, and cornish(practically extinct))

I'm not very good at this game. I tried 3 times and my best score was 400 and one of the languages I heard is many first language (French) and the language I'm learning now (German).

Very fun though!

September 17, 2013

just 900 ;) I truly enjoyed observing my internal reasoning ... I attempted learning Finnish once, and thus detecting Finnish and Estonian was easier. Having been to Denmark, I had a vague idea of its sound etc. This really speaks for immersing oneself in foreign audio.

550 on my only try, but i was helped because they used the same cheerful Polish woman for 3 of my samples.

Fun. 650 on my second attempt, but guessing on over half of them.

That was fun! I was surprised how well I did--maybe there's hope that I will learn a new language!

A great game for language lovers!!

I got 800 points... Kannada, Central Tibetan and Hindi caught me out :-/ Why can't they have English, French, Spanish and German on there?? :-p

September 17, 2013

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

They have French, Spanish, and German, but not English.

September 17, 2013

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

Ok, well I didn't get any of them! ;-)

I have also 800! And all were tips excluding German, Slovak and Czech (I live in Slovakia and czech language is very similar to slovak). I was wrong on some Dali (I have no idea what is it), Croatian and Samoan language. But the game is nice and very challenging. :)

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

700! It's great when you get it right by hearing what language it resembles, and guessing from there!

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

Very fun game. My score was 600. European languages, except for few northern ones, were easy for me. But there were a lot of languages I never heard of, so I had to guess those. But the site keeps crashing.
