@gmads You could try a poll on Duome if you want.

The whole Duome or the Duome forums? The latter would be too small a sample, I think.

Re: Escape the Snake!

Birds of a feather flock together, says the saying. It would be quite interesting to have all DL users world-wide participate in a poll to know their thinking about the system. I believe that a great majority would answer something in the line of "I don't care much, I just use it," followe...

Re: Escape the Snake!

I don't think any of the other courses received as many complaints as the Japanese one: the voices were truly unbearable, in pitch and in volume. I wish it was just that. The problem is that Japanese characters have different readings, onyomi and kunyomi , depending on the context. Unfortunately Du...

Re: Ela é minha menina. (en → pt)

Watch out. That menina may refer to your daughter or your girlfriend, but never to your wife. It's the same in English, right? I think that in English it is more common to use "girl" for girlfriend; it sounds a bit off, at least to me, when trying to use it to mean "daughter." T...
