Duolingo is a language education app that’s been really helpful in teaching millions of people a new language! That is until you miss a lesson. Learning a new language takes consistency and repetition, and if you forget to check in for a few days that’s when the Duolingo Owl comes for you.
The Duolingo Owl is weirdly aggressive about you learning your new language. Not only is there something extremely unsettling about him, but even the “random” sentences he has you translate. The whole thing has a bit of a horror movie vibe. I guess the best way to explain it is through memes. Read on.
