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.
