https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SpyDuck42

Apparently I can't spell banana in my own language, but I can spell it in French and Spanish off the top of my head.

why didn't this guy get any lingots for being humorous


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

Lingots are worthless

"Banana? BANANA? Bananas!" Minions just rushed in and stole my banana. It's havoc here at the moment. BRB.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MathLover11

Bananana Banane

Minion eat banane


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/daisyboo247

Minion mange banane. Le minion aimons banane!!!


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

Really does it matter if you know how to say i eat a banana in french? If you were eating a banana couldn't everyone just SEE the banana in your hand+


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

Yes because this sentence taught you the word banane and that it's a feminine word.

I accidentally typed banaba(RADIOACTIVE BANANAS?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). (the truth is, almost all food is radioactive.)


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

Bananas actually have radiation


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cshepherd239

No they don't dumb as


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

Whats wrong with that huh


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

I think that Adam O' Reilly and Cole Shepherd should have their immature comments blocked. This is a comment thread for learning, not for childish air-headed squabble. 'Respect' guys, and when you finally learn what that is then maybe you two might finally be happy with yourselves...I dont care who you are, if you don't show repect for others than you probably bare a cringing complex of unhappiness in yourself. So if you could do us all (those who are trying to actually use this as a learning tool) a massive favor and save yourselves from further shameful exploit, it would be much appreciated. So now children, please exempt anymore unoriginal shallow cyber garbage from these threads...I mean wouldn't it be nice to finally take off the dunz cap for once???

Trying to get the microphone to understand me and it never does no matter how i pronounce the words. I tell it to eff itself with its banana and i get a green tick! Duolingo has a sense of humour obviously...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SpyDuck42

You can just click the mic and then have the french guy speak into it (click mic, click audio) it works on everything but laptops


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

i just have a random question, is it strange or "wrong" to say like nous mange for example? do i have to say nous mangeons? someone please clarify.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Immanuela6

It's grammatically correct to say nous mangeons


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

It is wrong but understandable anyway


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

Je mange Tu mange Il/Elle/On mange

Nous mangeons Vous mangez Ils/Elles mangent


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/brody1394

I spelled banana correctly but it said it was spelled "bannnnannnan"


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

ʒə mɑ̃ʒ yn banan. Correct?


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

Btw, I expect my comments to get blocked as soon as the others are taken care of because I'm not here to make a scene or show of anything, but rather to interact with others who share the same interest in building up a word arsenal of languages!


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

Gwen Stefani taught me how to spell


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

"I am eating a dummy" Haha!

Go on Facebook if you just want to write banal comments - what a waste of time. Why are these comments not deleted, this is supposed to be a teaching site!

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MATH_guy1

what kind of sentence is that


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

A sentence that teaches you the basic structure of a French sentence, as well as the word "banane" and "mange."


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

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/King2E4

It's not rude at all. Instead, it's just that you have a dirty mind.
