onions and horses!!
does anyone else experience the word 'caballo' or 'cebolla' just a little too often?
It seems to be the word i am tested on most often and too often. I have not experienced a different animal or food word in a long time.
I tested this with 3 consecutive timed practices and it was the only animal and vegetable i received.
Duolingo! i know these words far too well!
Is anyone else experiencing this with onions and horses or any other words? If so please make a little change duo!!
i'd like to get to know some other animals and vegetables pleaseee!
omg, I own horses and I was talking to this guy saying I owned horses....but instead I said onions and he just starred at me like I was crazy!
You could have easily said that you ride guinea-pigs / cavies :) (cobayos).
Don't worry it's not as bad when you mean to say someone's hair is nice and use Cebolla instead haha.
Others have commented that they confuse these words, and would like more practice with them. Duo cannot win. ;)
ah okay, i can understand. I would of thought however that duolingos intelligent little system would recognise that i've gotten it correct everytime and so adjusted my questions accordingly.
From what i've seen Duo's system is pretty damn clever at suiting questions according to your strengths and weaknesses. But i dont have much insight into this.
There is another similar sounding word: "cabello", which means "hair".
So that means we have:
Caballo = Horse
Cebolla = Onion
Cabello = Hair
Are there any more?!
All languages have this so the native speakers can snicker at the foreigners. :=D
Only caballa and cobayo/a are used.
