A few weeks ago we got a very sweet email:
Dear Duolingo Team,
I am Italian and my American girlfriend Kate is in love with Duolingo… she’s learning my own language and she enjoys it so much that I’m wondering if I could ask you to set up an exercise for her that would lead to the big question:
“Will you marry Flavio Esposito?”
She would die if she saw this! Thanks so much for your time and consideration ;)
Who could resist that? Excited to help, we worked with Flavio to come up with a special love lesson that Kate would see the next time she logged in:
And then came the big question:
Would she say yes??? We weren’t sure, so if the answer was “no” we were prepared with our crying mascot:
It was a suspenseful weekend for us (although not as much as for Flavio!), but she said YES!!!
Congratulations Flavio and Kate! We’re honored to have been part of this special moment.
ok that’s… actually adorable, esp since doing it online like that isn’t actually A Public Question (when it’s in public in front of a lot of people i’m super uncomfortable bc that puts a lot of pressure on her to say “yes” because saying “no” would ruin the guy’s day in front of all these people and cause a huge scene and stuff)
n duolingo is a good site for language learning i have plugged it on here before

I believe the highest point is reached in Simone Martini’s Annunciation
and the look of absolute hatred Mary and Gabriel exchange.
I’M SORRY BUT MARTINI’S ANNUNCIATION JUST MAKES ME THINK OF THAT SCENE FROM KILL BILL
