Duolingo’s Portuguese course gets “passivo agressivo” lesson

In addition to “flirting” and ” idioms”, the Brazilian Portuguese course on Duolingo gained a third bonus lesson today: Passive Aggressive.

This lesson contains ways to say mean things indirectly. The sentences are designed to provide plausible deniability should your conversation partner confront you (“I didn’t mean it like that“).

Bonus lessons become available on some courses after you complete the first basic lessons and must be unlocked by purchasing them with so-called “lingots”. This part of the article is actually true.

Whether a “Passive aggressive 2” lesson will be added in the future or whether this will simply be “Aggressive 1” is not known at the moment.
