The Duolingo app is actually a really great way to make learning a new language both fun and easy. 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 whole thing has a bit of a horror movie vibe. I guess the best way to explain it is through memes. Read on.
