If you’re not familiar with the Duolingo memes, they are basically a funny take on Duolingo’s owl and its various more-or-less menacing pop-ups and notifications. Forgot to take a lesson? The pesky owl will soon let you know that bad things are coming your way. And with Duolingo themselves posting a pretty ominous picture on Twitter, it’s no surprise the memes have flown in like the Amazon on a rainy day.
Check out these 10 Duolingo memes for a taste of why language learning isn’t as risk free as it used to be.
1. The original.
2. Time for some French.
