Game of Thrones fans can use the Duolingo app to learn high Valyrian, fictional story language written by George R.R. Martin. Available for Android and iPhone (iOS) phones, the free learning platform offers a number of lessons for understanding the meaning of words, as well as pronunciation training. For this, the application has as a prerequisite the mastery of basic English, because there are no lessons in Portuguese.
In the adapted plot of the book "The Chronicles of Ice and Fire", the language is related to the inhabitants of Valria, in the eastern continent of Essos, the imaginary territory of history. The language stands out for the use of Daenerys Targaryen, one of the protagonists, known by the accompanying drages. Linguist David J. Peterson has expanded the dialect to the series and also to the teaching platform. In the tutorial below, prepared by dnetc, learn how to learn high valyrian on mobile with the Duolingo app. The walkthrough was done on a Google system device, but the instructions also apply to Apple devices.
