Duolingo seems to have lots of bizarre sentences that always makes me think twice.

https://www.duolingo.com/jboehmer17

I think that's why they make such strange sentences. When you read this, you stop and read it twice, think about it. And you remember it. It helps the words stand out in your mind, making them easier to recall later.

The sentence is too poetic or metaphorical to be used here. It can mislead the learner. It should be replaced with a sentence like the ones proposed by enevee (above).

I've divided the class into two teams: colors and shapes. I want each team to sing along with me.

I hear the colors. I don't hear the shapes. Sing louder, shapes.
