Oh my god. I didn’t realize until now how much I’m gonna miss the Zach Clap on eviction night.

This is Duolingo, a language-learning website/app that deserves some serious recognition. It offers over 10 languages for English speakers, as well as courses for non-English speakers around the world, and they’re in the process of adding more. 
But wait, I don’t want to do any more schoolwork! Not to worry little one, Duolingo is actually more like a game. You can compete with friends, and earn “lingots” (which are basically Duolingo money) to buy power-ups, extra activities, and bonus skills - like Flirting.

I’m already taking a language, what do I need this for? 
It’s not really a secret that most school language courses (in America, anyway) suck and only teach you to speak the language at about a third grader’s level. Which is why Duolingo is so freaking awesome.
Teachers can’t give every student individualized attention, but Duolingo can. If you’re not learning the way you want to or as much as you want to in the classroom, Duolingo is a really great resource. It’s easy, tailored to you, and really effective.

Duolingo tracks your progress and reminds you when you haven’t studied for a while or need a refresher on something. Already semi-fluent in a language? No problem, just take a shortcut to more advanced subjects or test out of the lesson. 
The lessons start with the basics (he, she, hello, thank you, etc) and move up to harder stuff. Duolingo focuses on vocabulary first, so you can learn the language and then the grammar that goes with it - much simpler than the system most schools use. It also tracks the number of words you’ve learned and how well you know them.

And you don’t even have to write out the flashcards!
Duolingo is perfect for reviewing everything you forgot over the summer or giving you the extra help you need. And if you’re trying to learn a language on your own, it’s fantastic - you don’t have to create your own lessons. Whether you’re trying to learn your second, third, or fifth language, I seriously recommend Duolingo.
Okay, what else?
Duolingo also has discussion boards, where you can ask for help with a hard lesson, make new friends, watch for updates, and share your achievements.
Even better is the Immersion feature. It won’t send you to Spain or France, but it’s pretty awesome. Duolingo takes real articles from the internet, which users translate. You can translate articles from your native language into the language you’re learning or vice versa, which gives you more experience and makes the Internet more universal.
You can suggest new languages and track Duolingo’s progress in creating new courses. Bilinguals (older than 13) can help to create these courses. Duolingo has a long list of courses that can be contributed to, like Punjabi, Hebrew, and Vietnamese. Oh, and Dothraki, Klingon, Sindarin, and Esperanto.
And the best part? IT’S COMPLETELY FREE. 
If you love languages or just want to pass French class this year, USE DUOLINGO. Download the app and practice a language while you wait for the bus instead of playing Angry Birds!

Coolest app I’ve ever downloaded.


oh my god! i have this on my phone! I’m bummed it still doesn’t have a Japanese course, but I signed up for Spanish ‘cause I kinda know a few things about it anyway. This is definitely a great app.

When people throw hate at Frankie:

When people throw hate at Zach:

When people can understand it’s a GAME, appreciate the Zankie moments we’ve gotten and not hate on actual human beings who aren’t scripted characters in a television show:


zankiedoodle:

Zach goes into the storage and then a thump can be heard so Frankie sprints to see if Zach’s alright… cute tho. 3:53pm 8/19

see? Frankie may be talking shit about Zach, but HE HAS TO (to get the alliance’s trust). It’s not like he means it. But the Frankie of Frankie’s game needs to do that.


People are taking Big Brother way too personal!

I don’t like Frankie’s game decisions at all. I fucking hate it. But it’s his game, and he’s doing what he thinks is best for his game. He thinks it’s best to trust Cody and Derrick. WE KNOW HE SHOULDN’T, but he doesn’t see what WE SEE. He’s not in in all the conversations like we are.

But at the end of the day, I LOVE FRANKIE as a person and out of anyone in the house, he’s probably the first person I’d call for a sleepover, and then Zach, and then Nicole. I love him for all the ways that Zach liked him in the first place. He’s fucking funny, he’s intelligent, and he’s sexy.

Big Brother is a game. We should never judge someone for how they act inside the house, because I bet you, the person that sets foot inside is different than who they really are outside. It’s a game where you have to leave whomever you are at the door for freaking $500,000.


i don’t want to be so optimistic, but…

the renom rule might be enforced this week, because of two things.

(1) Frankie is both HOH and holder of the Golden Power of Veto and; (2) Frankie told Zach he’s going to put him up as REPLACEMENT nominee.

You might be saying it’s unfair because of PaoPao’s eviction. Yes, Devin was also both HOH and POV holder, but Paola wasn’t a replacement nominee, she’s an existing nominee. So it’s really not the same.

In this case, the two things “needed” for a renom rule callout is in play.

Or not. I did some digging, and found that Brendon was HOH but wasn’t the POV winnner when that Renom Rule shenanigan happened.

So now I’m rethinking what I just blabbed about. I just thought with too much power in Frankie’s hands, the rules about not telling a houseguest that he/she is going up would be enforced because of the certainty of the outcome. I mean, if he’s just HOH, he doesn’t know if the POV will be used, so telling someone they MIGHT be the renom is not entirely “certain”. I don’t know. Maybe I should freaking sleep.

Ugh. Big Brother is a tricky game, not just because of the game itself, but because of the fucking rules.

These posters are in the stalls of the bathrooms at my university (at least in the ladies, I haven’t asked anyone if they’re in the gents too. I hope so though). Thank you National Union of Students for doing it right. If only they put these posters up in all public bathrooms

YES.
