Doing a German skill I came across an odd sentence like "The mouse and I learn" which I wasn't sure what it meant. Being on my last question with no hearts left I asked one of my German roommates and he laughed then told everyone else in the room what I had asked him. Way to make me look like an idiot DL :) (got the damn sentence wrong too)

LMAO I have to follow that. I take screencaps of things I find amusing and put them in my "Fun with Duolingo" folder on fb. Stuff like, "I pesci non mangiano i gatti" and comment with, "I hope to god not."

That's cute. I live on the US/Mexican border, we do switch languages all the time. Sometimes the thoughts flow better in Spanish or we only know the word in English.

If you check the French tree, the word "black" is used abundantly that it will make you wonder about the black water, black dog, black cat, black horse, and black lion.

I don't get the joke. Code switching is very common by multilinguals; there are even places like Hongkong, where you can see television presenters regularly mishmash a mixture of Mandarin, Cantonese, and English in a single sentence without batting an eyelid.

I guess this joke is lost in translation.
