OH MY GOD A GIVEAWAY
Hey, so i’m giving away a copy of Five Nights at Freddy’s.

Okay, so, here are the rules, I guess:
- Only reblogs count as entries, likes don’t count, nor do multiple reblogs.
- No giveaway blogs
- You don’t have to be following me
- The game should be played, don’t try to trade it away or anything
- Have fun
Giveaway ends on the 28th of August, 6pm Australian Eastern Standard Time.
How else do you think Groudon got stuck on that dinky land? (´⊙ω⊙`)
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.
Wow so cool!
I was just thinking of trying to pick up Japanese and Korean. With the growing relations in the animation industry I’d really love to be able to connect with artists overseas. God we need more collabs like Masaaki Yuasa’s adventure time episode. Or flipping all of studio Mirs season 1 and 2 of korra

Edison - What bad habits do they have? Is there something they would be ashamed of?
He is moderately ashamed of his habit of being submissive and doesn’t like to flaunt it. If Edison is close to someone with a stronger and more controlling personality he tends to give in and just follow them. ( unless they’re suggesting something he’s completely and utterly against it has it’s limits ) He’s not the best at arguing with his superiors or anyone giving him orders.
He won’t admit it, but he does enjoy not having to make his own choices sometimes.
Nadia - How bad does an insult go over? Do they hold a grudge long?
Nadia holds HORRIBLE grudges. Insults are usually met with instant retaliation and she won’t forget it anytime soon. If you break her trust or give her a bad impression of you it sticks for a loooong time.
Helge - What’s their favorite thing to talk about? What do they go on about?
He’ll actually go on and on about the accident that took his arm. He’s not ashamed to share about it and will sit and tell you all the lessons he learned from it and how it made him a better person and yada yada Arceus has a reason for everything etc. etc.
He loves sharing ‘inspirational’ stories and trying to encourage those around him to be their best. Often a little too much though, he can get really pushy with his standards.
