Duolingo: What are the Lessons Like?
I just love everything about the sleek interface of Duolingo. This creepily slow voice is a very useful feature in the exercises that ask you to type what you hear:. Let me give you a brief summary of the things I noticed that could be improved. Making mistakes is an inevitable and essential part of language learning. So my advice to you would be: Some of the sentences that the app makes you translate would not normally be used in natural speech.
I wish I had more control over choosing which words are the ones that matter to me. However, what the app actually asks you to do is to repeat what you can already see on the screen in written form.

But when you learn this language, a whole new world opens up to you. Dealing with life in language learning challenges: You may remember the one month update coming from three different language learners about a month ago. All three are back and ready to let us know how things are progressing at the month two point. This discusses an issue that we all have to deal with — life getting in the way of our [ Review of Rosetta Stone: This is a very detailed and frank review of the latest version of Rosetta Stone: The Language Hacking Guide is now available to be read in its entirety in six languages seven next week , translated by natives.
The stone of Rosetta You might think that this post has something to do with expensive yellow boxes that you can buy at airports with language learning software. The Rosetta stone [ True friends are hard to find so I kept you. Care is the main ingredient that keeps true friendships alive despite separation, distance and time.
Since I can't see you, let my care be with you, friend! What is a friend? She looks out for you, inspires you, laughs with you, cries with you, understands you, guides you and walks with you. That's what a friend is. I have a pen which is blue, I have a friend which is you. Flowers will die, waters will dry, but our friendship will never say goodbye. How long shall we be friends?
Do you want a clue? As long as stars twinkle in the sky, till the water runs dry and till the day I die. We will be friends. A friend is a push when you have stopped, a chat when you are lonely, a guide when you are searching, a smile when you are sad, a song when you are glad. Colors may fade, the sun may not shine, the moon may not be bright, heartbeats may stop, lives may pass but our friendship, I'll treasure 'till the day my heart stops.
When you're down, I'll be there to cheer you up. When you're tired, I'll be there to lift you up. I'll be your friend no matter what! Friends are like mangga Well I'm lucky coz I was able to find the sweetest mangga in you! If you want to be happy for a day, get a date. Happy for a week, get a lover. Happy till the end, keep me.
I don't regret the things I have done and the things I didn't do. For somewhere along the way I must have done something right coz I ended up with a friend like you. I may have forgotten to say that I care. I may have failed to open up and share, but though no words have been spoken, my promise of friendship won't be broken. Time and distance are important between friends. When a friend is in your heart, they remain there forever.
I may be busy, but I assure you, you are always in my heart! I was never tired of this life and it's not gonna matter if I fall down twice, coz I know each time I fall, you won't let me hit the ground.
Thanks for being around. Friends are gifts wrapped in ribbons of thoughtfulness and trimmed with kisses and smiles, given by God to stay not just for a day, but for life. Fifty years from now, I'd be so old I might forget you. I might not remember ever knowing you, or might forget I once cared for you. Do you ever recall the first day we met? The day we became friends?
Well, I do and I will always remember. For that very day, I knew I'd cherish you. Some friends are remembered because of their smile. Some friends are remembered because of their style. But you are remembered because you are so nice to remember. Someday you may lose your hair, your teeth, your looks, or even your memory. But there's something you won't lose.
Me, coz I'll always be your friend. I won't promise to be your friend forever, coz I won't live that long. But let me be your friend as long as I live. I thank God I'm rich not with money but with people like you. I may not have the most expensive things but I've got a most precious gem. I admit I'll never be the perfect friend. I'll never be there always. I may not make you smile at times but there is one thing I admit I could do. To be the person I could be for you.
Friends are like the walls of a house. Sometimes they hold you up, sometimes you lean on them. But sometimes, it's enough to know they're just standing by. I thank the Lord for the gift of friendship where I can be myself and be accepted as I am and for finding a home in the heart of a friend.
Keep me as a friend and I will keep you in my heart and lock it up. I'll throw away the key so that no one can take you away from me. Some joys are better explained in silence, as a smile gets more audible than laughter. I was asked if I enjoyed my friendship with you. If all my friends were to jump off a bridge, I wouldn't jump with them; I'd be at the bottom to catch them. Thank you for touching my life in ways you may never know.
My riches do not lie in material wealth but in having friends like you - a precious gift from God! I always thought loving someone is the greatest feeling, but I realized that loving a friend is even better. We lose people we love, but we never lose true friends. If one day you feel like crying, call me.
I can't promise to make you laugh, but I'm willing to cry with you. A man should keep his friends in a constant repair. The difficulty is not so great to die for a friend, as to find a friend worth dying for.
Some friends are separated by time. Some are separated by differences. Some by distances, some by pride. But no matter how far you are or different we may be, you'll always be a friend to me!
