Writing texts in a foreign language and getting corrected

Hello, everyone!

I'm sorry if I'm asking something that has been asked before - I did a quick search and couldn't quite find the answer I am looking for. Does anyone know if Duolingo has any official tool for people to write in the foreign language they are practicing and then getting corrected by other members of the Duolingo community? I think this would be really great for all of us. I'm not sure if the "Discussion" area is the best to do so.

Thanks in advance!

I second the Lingots for Stories that the other commenter suggested, and you should also check out Lang-8: http://lang-8.com . It's pretty much exactly what you described - you write something in the language you are learning, and then native speakers can correct you, tell you if it sounds natural, etc. Happy learning :-)

I second this! I have been using lang-8 myself, and I got the impression that people who were writing in Norwegian were receiving corrections right away :)

You should check out Criculann's Lingots for Stories - https://lingots4stories.wordpress.com/. They post a discussion on Duolingo every week or so and users post stories focusing on a specific topic which are then checked and corrected by other users fluent in that language. It may not be what you're looking for, but I'd recommend you check it out!
