Re: Paying for Duolingo. Would you ?

Today is my 1000th day streak! I've paid during two years and I think I'll continue, as long as I'm motivated enough to learn languages and Duo provides enough good courses that interest me. I use mainly the Android App because I find the display and ergonomy better on my smartphone than the web app...

Re: Final R pronunciation

Thanks to Spotify I can listen to a lot of Turkish music with lyrics. Right now I can understand nothing but some words and hints on the sentence structure. Anyway I use them to better my pronunciation on some words, I also look for ending Rs to check them. It appear that in songs there are very few...

I'm no expert on Esperanto, but I think you can also use trinki with alcoholic beverages. I'm sure I've seen it somewhere (Lernu, Duolingo). Yes you can, drinki is for unmoderated alcoholic drinking.

Now I need to consider which language I would then propose as the third easiest to understand, along with English and Indonesian —from my point of view.

From your point of view, it will most probably be Esperanto. Sendube vi povas tre rapide lerni kaj kompreni esperanton.

I think that Duo's gamification is very effective, maybe too effective for some people like me.

Everything is fine now since I've quit the league...

It is 100% real, and many Turks admit that they do not hear it themselves. It could be described as a bit of extra air across the palate when a phrase ends in "r." Whenever you are worried about pronunciations -- you can find real native-spoken words at: Forvo https://forvo.com/languages/...
