Suggestion: "Pen pals"

We should be able to receive Pen Pals according to the the language that we're learning. You could get paired with people learning your native language, and you learning theirs, to help practice and achieve fluency in the language that you are working on. You can do it by email, by letter, or by some sort of special place on Duolingo like a mail center especially for that. We could even buy the feature with lingots!

Fabulous idea! Maybe when you first start DuoLingo there could be an option to "buddy-up" with a person who is also starting that week/or month. For weight loss and physical fitness routines, having a buddy is really supposed to help your chance of maintaining the program.

What we can do now: we can exchange emails, skype or facebook account names etc. through our streams, and then converse through these channels. Now, there are few drawbacks:

  • the profile is visible to anyone, even to those you wouldn't want to share your address with (it can be visible to spambots too)

  • often I get a message in the evening, and when I get to Duolingo some ten hours later, it's hell to scroll done through pages and pages of my friends' posts and accomplishments. Following quite a lot of people, this makes communication through streams very clumsy, sometimes to the point that I refuse to really read the message

  • no formatting wouldn't inhibit mail address exchange, but it makes conversation through streams even clumsier, especially when longer messages are involved (I rarely can express what I need in a short message, but I usually make my post readable through formatting... when it's impossible, I either don't respond, or spend a long time over a wall of text that probably won't be read by the other person - I feel ridiculous in either case).

At first, personal messages visible for the recipient only and allowing formatting are enough for "pen pal" program. Guidance for matching ideal partners would be nice, but it's not necessary as long as we can communicate this with each other, and it would mean lots of extra work for duolingo team - extra work. Duolingo team does a good job and Duolingo is developing at extreme pace (in comparison to many similar projects), but we can't expect them to perform miracles.

If you really want to have a pen pal:

1) browse discussions and people's prefiles and try to find someone who is from a country where your target language is spoken. For better effect, change your language (for example from "I know English and I want to learn French" to "Je parle francais et je veux apprendre anglais") and then pick anyone who doesn't state in their profile that you share a native language.

2) contact the person you have chosen through their stream. Write something like this: "Hi! I learn French and I've read you are a native French speaker. I would like to converse with you, so that I improve my French conversation skills. If you are interrested, send me an email. My address is abcd(at)gmail.com." That "(at)" instead of @ is a safety measure, because it fools most bots so that they won't send you spams.

3) repeat points 1 and 2 until you find enough pen pals, or a one you are happy to chat with.

4) converse!

Don't let technical imperfection restrain you language learning!

Duolingo doesn't need to have the Incubator, or a discussion forum, or a mobile app, or a leaderboard. But those features improve it. Just like a "pen pal" feature would improve it.

https://www.duolingo.com/alsocass

I disagree, it does need all the thing you mentioned above, but at some stage it will have to deal with feature bloat and everything that comes with it. Why downvote the fact that a good website for language exchange already exists - if someone wants a penpal they can go and get a dozen pen pals for less than the cost of a coffee.

I agree with alsocass. there are many sites out there doing the job already, why reinvent the wheel?

the enthusiasm of some members are admirable but being realistic is important as well. duolingo consists of small team and it is best to focus acing at what it is already and filling the gaps and holes, adding features which take the site to whole lot other level isn't practical, it requires being highly moderated.

instead, why not just add simple "messaging" feature, where we can have private talks... I think private chat with friends would be more practical as well, comparing to the idea of penpaling.

Yes. It has a monthly fee of $4. So I signed up for a single month (one off payment of $4) and then was able to send messages to all the people I was interested in. I made 4 or 5 contacts in a single day. It was great as it let you specify not only languages and locations, but the type of contact you were interested in (ie email, skype, facebook). I love the idea of eventually skyping with contacts, when I feel brave enough.

I have left the site now of course, but I will return if I ever want more "pen pals".

https://www.duolingo.com/Trentles

It is much easier to learn a language when you are immersed around native speakers. I would suggest maybe having it as an account option when you sign up, if you are interested in having a "pen pal" in a certain language. That way you other people who are interested in the same thing can search for these people easily.

Alternatively, you could have people apply for "coaching" spots and find people that want native coaches to help them with their language. Maybe get a little icon by the account name.

This idea is genius. I would love it if Duolingo would implement this. We should have some guidelines to help protect users from spam and viruses, though. It would be nice if it was an option to use, since some users wouldn't appreciate this kind of feature. And buying it with lingots is a superb idea, so many users have no way to use all of them and they just pile up. I would say a live chat center would do the job, and the "Let's make conversations" thing seems like exactly what ShayneBower1 is trying to describe!

Yes, but finding someone is the hard part. Where would you find them? There was requested for a search function for users learning your language, or maybe even speak the language you are learning. That would actually be helpful because there are probably thousands of Duolingo users that probably are learning the same language as you and are at the same level but you don't know about them, just because they don't have a name you'd probably search in the name search function, or don't translate too much, or reply in the discussion area. So, maybe if this was actually implemented, (with the search function), this would probably be pretty helpful.

Discussion board users are more involved with Duolingo, therefore they are the most willing to become pen-pals. Find any user, post to their stream, see what happens. It's really not that difficult.

5 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Alien-Layer-Hen

No, it's not, but some people may not think of asking for a penpal. Having this as an option would make them actually think about it. Also, I don't really appreciate your response to 1bimic's post. It makes you sound like you didn't read the entire thing, since s/he SPECIFICALLY mentioned people who don't use the forums.

@Alien

I did read the response and I said that your best chance at getting a "pen-pal" that will be beneficial to your learning are those who are actively involved; this includes people just post simple questions in the lesson discussions. Heck, pick anyone who posted in this very discussion and ask them to be your pen-pal.

I believe this would just lead to a lot of people signing up, just because it's a new option. Some would definitely use it the way it's intended but many would just use it once or twice and forget about it. It might even end up that a whole bunch of people will get paired up with spammers or 1-post users. Bascially you don't want those users.

If people want pen-pals all they need to do is put in a little bit of effort. Don't be so sensitive, ^_^

Many people who live in a foreign country need/ want to practice too :D if anyone lives in Nantes, France I would be delighted to teach them French or help them find the decent event or fb page to do language exchanges in person and make foreign friends! Good luck with your learning to all of you :)

    This would definitely be a helpful feature with more applications than simply language! It also allows the learning of culture as well.

    guys until this feature is added (if it is) HelloTalk is a great app where you can talk to people who are fluent in your target language and who want to learn the language set as the one you'd like to teach or are fluent in !!

    I Think its a absolutely brilliant idea! and if used correctly could really benefit us individuals looking to expand our knowledge in a specific language. It would also play a crucial part in speeding up the process.

    Make an account at Conversation Exchange: https://www.conversationexchange.com/

    You can find a penpal and write with him/her or give the penpal a call by phone, Skype or whatever you like. It is always a very good exercise to use the language in conversation and this website is for people seeking a penpal. I have met a person there and we have been exchanging mails since and sometimes talked on Skype in many languages. I can clearly recommend it! :D

    What do you mean pen pals? Im sorry for being mean but you dont even have a streak. If you check your profile you haven't played for a while. Don't suggest anything if you don't even play dualingo. If you had a day or so of a streak or even just whatever I would buy in to what you are doing, but even that Pen pals cost much more money to put in. sorry man, you got me.
