Duolingo's 'Game of Thrones' Course Update Teaches You to Command Dragons
Learn how to make excuses, discuss cooking, and more with the newest update to the Duolingo High Valyrian language course.
A recent graduate of the University of Minnesota, Nina started at CNET writing breaking news stories before shifting to covering Security Security and other government benefit programs. In her spare time, she's in her kitchen, trying a new baking recipe.
The update comes as fans await the release of Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon, which kicks off on HBO and HBO Max on Aug. 21. Those interested in fine-tuning their High Valyrian can learn how to make excuses, discuss cooking, talk about themselves and command dragons as expertly as Daenerys Targaryen.
High Valyrian is a "conlang," or constructed language, that linguist David J. Peterson created for the HBO series. Duolingo partnered with Peterson in 2019 to create a High Valyrian course on the app.
