    Kneading, originally a behaviour that kittens needed to survive, is now a way for adult cats to show that they trust you and feel safe, and if you had a soft pelt like mom, you wouldn’t feel so much of the little knives.”

    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.

    These Pottermore stats literally go against every house stereotype ever

    •  Gryffindor chivalry tends towards the cliquish and protective, and to most of them the highest expression of bravery is to fight for what’s right and to stick up for ones’ friends and family—all else is empty thrill-seeking. Living up to the ideals of daring and boldness gives them the courage to seek out new friends anywhere they go, and approach strangers fearlessly. 
    • Hufflepuffs are ‘dilligent and steadfast’—i.e, tenacious bastards who won’t ever back down from a challenge. They won’t stop until the job is done, and if the job is beating you hollow, god help you. 
    • Ravenclaws don’t just value knowledge, they delight in the pursuit of it, and love to search things out. They’re oriented around seeking and collecting behaviors, and get a rush from the challenges of uncovering what’s hidden. Hide something from a Ravenclaw and watch them tear a tower apart brick by brick to get at it. 
    • Slytherins are very results-oriented, (‘these cunning folk use any means to achieve their ends’) and so giving gifts— literal tokens of esteem, attaching an objective value to your regard— just makes sense to them as a way to display their sincerity. Empty statements and trite declarations don’t impress Slytherins, jaded as they are to lies and glib politicking— if you mean what you say, you’ll be expected prove it, like they do.
