Furthermore, 51% admitted to utilizing these idioms to add wit and humor to their conversations or as terms of endearment or love language. Recently, the company celebrated this language diversity by asking users to go on a voyage of linguistic discoveries with the “#EnglishMeinNahiJamta” campaign, which was posted on Duolingo India’s Instagram page.
