Wanna learn a new language while leveling up, gaining points, and pretending to be a bi-linguist? It's a pretty cool and innovative way to get people to learn new languages and I figured i'd share it with you guys.

I'm a level 2 German.

I used it to help me prep for German before I took a class and I used it a bit to review my Spanish which I was pretty good at but I haven't used it to speak to anyone in years.

I was actually thinking about starting Duolingo again a few days ago but at this point I'd rather pay for a language class, since it doesn't help much past a certain point. It's good for an intro though

Yes, I am addicted and obsessed, as are all of my friends. We compete with each other every week. It is honestly getting out of control.

All we do now a days is yell very basic and pointless sentences at each other in different languages. We each chose a different language and are trying to see who can become fluent first. We each get well over 1000+ xp each week so far.

Strange, I was just thinking earlier that I need a new method to learn another language. I tried to learn Italian and was eventually going to move onto French, but I just don't have the free time to do this on my own in between a full-time job, being a full-time student, boyfriend. The little leisure time I do have is spent on sleep and playing guitar.

Anyway, it seems kind of limited. I'll stick to Rosetta Stone and if I can find the slot for credits in between being a psychology major/pre-med student, I'll try to take classes.

Oh my ****ing god, I just found out if you go to the website and use the online version of the application, you can learn so many more languages than the phone app offers. Dutch, Irish, Danish, Hungarian? With Turkish and Swedish coming next month?

Shit just got real, guys. Just feeding into my addiction. Help me.

No, **** that smug ass owl. "Shucks! You're out of hearts! Try again!" while he's dramatically standing in a little puddle of tears as if he gives a shit. It's even worse when you unlock the fancy attire for him, with his little monocle like he's better than you. You just know all the languages, don't you? **** that owl. YOU TRY AGAIN!

I really need to put the duolingo down for a while.

According to Duolingo my Spanish accent is horrible and my French accent is impeccable. I highly doubt this

I disabled it cause it also makes you look like an idiot trying to speak with a poor imitation of a french accent in public areas.

There seems to be an aptitude test on the website.

You can turn that off with you want.

I try to use duolingo as often as I can. Currently I'm level 6 in french and level 5 in Italian.

If anyone feels like following me or whatevs my username's Duffbag. I'll follow back.

no amount of languages can make up for having english as a first language as a result of being a natural born citizen of a first world country
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
#31
The only two languages available so far (in Germany) are English and Frech. So if you already speak English that's pretty useless.

edit: found out how to access the English language lections so I'm now taking an English Spanish class. That's what you call bilingual.

The same was true of Persian not that long ago.

I have been using the site to learn Italian. Although I use mindsnacks and a couple of apps on my iphone.
Duolingo is great for teaching sentencing and speaking, I use mindsnacks for popular conversation/phrases and my apps teach me vocabulary like numbers, colours, days months etc.

I used to but then I slacked off and now I haven't done a lesson in ages.
I believe it was guitarxo who first brought it to my attention.
