Weekly Duolingo-based Crossword Puzzle: 19/10/2013
And so my fellow duolinguers, ask not what DuoLingo can do for you, but what you can do for DuoLingo.
Puzzle about language facts:
Feel free to translate this into other languages.
Answer will be presented 1 week(26/10/2013) from now along with a new puzzle.
You can try it online here: https://crosswordlabs.com/view/language-puzzle#cell-5-15
Edit: You can create your own crossword puzzles in that site, and we can start a new thread just with puzzles.
No. 7 is incomplete it should be: 7. A number with the same spelling in portuguese and French Enjoy.
Hint: no 6. is actually in portuguese, since its unfair to non-portuguese speakers. It is the portuguese word for dad.
Hint: no 18: its actually written in portuguese

I found a better site. Sorry I'll change the puzzle somewhat, but the answers are the same :P. Just a small mistake number 3 contains an error it ends with "/". So it really is 10 letter word( not 11).
So close... Hehe, Your googling skills are lacking there is no month in French called Zeus.
@Vedun I see, well, I was actually thinking of expanding this, and creating a crossword puzzle for each skill in the languages I'm fluent with. Something like "animal-skill crossword puzzle", "numbers crossword" puzzle, and so on. However, it may take considerable time unless others decide to contribute because coming up with questions is not so simple.
It may serve as an excellent pass-time to refresh skills, at least for me.
Actually, I was thinking.... "Geez Dessamator, I speak English, and I'm learning Spanish. Your puzzle is HARD. Could we have a simpler one?
Yes, I'll make a simpler one for English next week , more in tune with Duolingo. Although at least a few (5 or less) questions will still be hard.
Sadly, I don't know Spanish, I made a simple puzzle in French though:)
I couldnt be bothered to use google, it was a wild guess at the moment
too many parts requiring extensive portuguese knowledge :P i don't know a single portuguese word :(
ps: the rest of the puzzle (not requiring any portuguese) is completed. ;)
Google is your friend. You can save a screenshot of it if you think you've finished. Theres only 4 questions requiring knowledge of portuguese.
P.S. Hints on the words requiring Portuguese knowledge:
- 1 -This number is shown when learning French
- 4 -Brazilian dance is painfully obvious
- 7 -This number is shown when learning French
- 10 -Dance form (Famous dance in latino countries)
- 11 -The bird's name is derived from another language and means fire
- 15 -This fruit is in duolingo's lessons (French(different spelling), portuguese)
- 9 -This fish is very vicious, a cannibal, omnivorous, and can kill a human.
i figured out 14 of the 20 already, but not going to figure out the rest of them EVER. it's sooooo difficult!! i love it :)
Well, you could always try guessing the password on the site, it shows you the full answer. Heres another hint, those numbers are smaller than 1000. :D
OOOOoooo, I'm liking the additional clues. I still don't know the other 6 with the extra clues, but I now have #9. Woot. HINT- more clues please.
Hmm, I'll make you a deal, I'll give 2 more hints if 2 more people request it. :)
- 15 I am full of envy until I grow up, but once I do I become a coward. What am I?
- 18 Sometimes I'm light, sometimes I'm dark, Sometimes I'm round, Sometimes I'm not. What am I?
