Ok. So, I have lapsed in my use of Duolingo for the majority of 2013. I have came back to it about seven days ago and I am even more impressed than the last time I have used it. The site and apps have gotten even better, and I thought that they were pretty awesome before.
It is amazing how this site has matured since I first saw it just over a year ago.
Awesome job to the Duolingo team for what they do.
I'm going to recommend this to my ESL students as a method of practicing English outside the classroom, one or two lessons a day. Was introduced to it by two of them last Fall, and I was really impressed by how fast they improved, compared to the other students. This, plus watching TV in English (the Vampire Diaries for one of them) really worked . I've been impressed with how much easier and less painful it is to learn to USE the language properly here.
That is a great idea. I never have taken a French course, but I have completed the French tree here, and I am able to read some French news and blogs because of it. I think that this site is awesome.
For the website? I don't think so. I like the interface in the most up to date ios 7 apps.
