QuQ Also don’t be shy to self-promote, i’ll gladly follow if your style intrigues me!

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.

My dad uses this, and he loves it! He’s been multilingual for a long time (Spanish, Portuguese, Italian) and he says it’s taught him things that even he didn’t know. I might be using it for my german soon too, ‘cus I’m definitely rusty on that. Harumph

omfg this is awesome

Short story: I was told i’d get payed, turns out i’m not getting paid. Now i’m looking for a job as best as i can, but i won’t be getting news right away. I`m hoping to get some commissions to help with my rent and food, BUT DON’T FEEL OBLIGED! I can still go on for a month until i get a job, and i know others would need it more than me, but i’ll do my best to pay for my needs and i’ll gladly draw/paint for you if you wish to help. QuQ;;
HOW IT WORKS: 
∙ Send the amount you feel like sending to my paypal and i’ll draw my bestest to your liking. You could send 5$ if you wanted to, it’d help. Of course if you send something like 30-40$, i’d cry my eyes out and draw the to my full extent for you. 
∙ Give me a reference(s) if you need one, of course if it’s characters from an already existing show/manga etc. or an animal, i’ll do the searching. no problem. If you don’t have any references and it’s an original character, you can describe them as well as possible in your message and i could send you a W.I.P (work in progress) of the picture to verify if i’m drawing your characters properly. 
∙ You can send the message/request/references via note here on tumblr, or e-mail at Gabbybitez­@hotmail.com
∙ My paypal is Gabbybitez@hotmail.com as well.
I’LL DRAW WHATEVER YOU WANT.
- couples (2 guys and 2 girls counts OF COURSE!  (っ◕‿◕)っ)
- action shots 
- fanart
- OCs (original characters)
- boobs.
- mixes of all of the above (sdsbgbgaawttonbsdodssdefggb!!!)

It would be a big help if this could be spread-ed on the glorious toast that is tumblr. I’m not that well known so i don’t expect the impossible, but thank you infinitely for the help, even just by spreading this around!

From top to bottom: Me, my friend gabbybites  and my sister as pokecenter ladies from X/Y, each with our favourite pokemon Mew, Inkay and Blissey. The three of us were a trio of pokemon nurses at the Quebec city Geekfest last 5th and 6th jully, it was pretty funny and and we made some people smile :3 We are probably going to wear the same cosplay at the Otakuthon, Quebec’s biggest con in Montreal next 24th august.
