A Poem for Duolingo

  • Many have said thanks to you
  • But just to show I care
  • I've written a short poem --
  • For which I'm here to share

  • Across the globe they are teaching
  • The next generation the are reaching
  • Impacting the world each day --
  • It's Duolingo all the way
  • Wait a moment! That's not all!
  • They've made it so that you
  • Can also help add languages
  • And make a difference too!
  • Alas,
  • Fluency in two languages is something that I lack
  • But DL has given me so much
  • I'd like to help give back!
  • So if there ever is a way
  • Of help that I could be
  • Just let me know, give me a call
  • I'll be there as you'll see :)

-Clara


  • Duolingo — you're the best!
  • You really are so great
  • This program is so brilliant
  • You've been able to create!

Thank you! I love to write poems :)

Cool. Now translate it into German.:)


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

Haha, I could probably do some of it... :)

give it a shot!

No, I don't know, I think I could get some parts of it, but it would be really messed up. Let me try the last part:

  • Duolingo -- Du bist die besten!
  • Du bist wirklich so toll
  • Dieses Programm ist so brilliant
  • Du hast erstellt!

I really don't know the last line... maybe you could do it for me. :)

Maybe like this:

  • Duolingo -- Du bist das Beste!
  • Das Beste der Welt!
  • Dieses Programm ist genial
  • Von dir so erstellt!

I know that I changed the second line, but I thought it would be cool to keep it in rhyme!

Perfect! I love it! :)

Oh. My. Goodness. That is my favorite poem too!!!! Gotta love Roald Dahl ;)

I missed this somehow in my childhood. THANK YOU for sharing, Samsta! (I don't usually go for all caps, but that seemed to merit it.) :)

It's not as good, but this is one I have gotten much amusement from over the years: http://www.turnoffyourtv.com/poemsessays/jimmyjet.html

Thanks I love it!

Great, now all you need to do is translate it into all current duolingo languages. Edit: you could upload the poem to the immersion section and see how the duolinguers translate it


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

Really? Do you think that would be valid though? And I've never uploaded something before, so I'm not sure how it work.


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

Yes, although you need to post it in an external site because the upload won't really process anything from the duolingo forum.

I think you miss an y in the second line, or i'm missing something...

    "Impacting the world each day, it's Duolingo all the way." I'd like to see this become the DL motto :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Christine1999

    Why not? I think DL needs some motto :).

      I had learned English and Russian when I at school. Several months ago, I found Duoligo at an Android App website. I start learning French from English with it right now. Since I'm Chinese, it will be a challenge for me,but I will persist in it.

        Nice! (5 years later...)
