Duolingo is the most popular way to learn languages in the world. Best of all, it's 100% free!

Suggestion: L2 --> L3 counts as practice for L2

I was thinking, as more and more language paths open up, some of us might decide to learn a third language from a tree we've already completed to keep our previous language in practice. I for example would love to do a German --> French or French ---> German course if they were ever created.

It might be nice, if when doing a language through a base you've previously learned or are learning, any words used got strengthened and perhaps you could get some skill points in the base language as well.

Its a minor thing, people will do L2-->L3 even if they don't get points for it, but I think it would be cool if there was some sort of official implementation.

I also think it would be nice to have language courses without English in between. Remember that here are not only English native speakers learning ;)

Yes, that's the idea. Those courses are coming soon - check the incubator.

Personally, I don't think I'd ever repeat the Duolingo tree going from another language (Spanish to French or something). Much as I want to stay in practice, I'd rather spend time expanding my vocabulary in new directions than spend another few weeks going over the words for cats and rice and skirts :)
