What language has the greatest number of completed trees?
Does anybody know it?
Can you release some stat on the different languages? Such as: 1) all-time/monthly/weekly/daily top 100 achievers per language? 2) user's position within a language 3) table of friends/followers within a language (all timers/monthly/daily/weekly) 4) top 100 strikers per language 5) strikers ranking within my friends/follower etc'.
Feed us, stats freaks!
I don't have official stats but if you scroll down on the incubator page http://incubator.duolingo.com/ spanish has most learners and is (in my opinion) one of the easier languages. So I'd go with spanish. It is also most useful for Americans, who (again my guess) probably make up most users (at least for the moment).
If you wanted to know 'percentage of users (of a specific language tree)' which complete the tree this might look different.
I would like to know this, too. Well, Luis already answered this. But maybe this is a dynamical thing at some point.
Like: on x people are your tree, y people have similar skills (based on the tree) than you, z people already finished the tree (without shortcuts). I like numbers, but I'm not sure whether or not this is motivating.
Especially if about half the users are learning English... But maybe English is number one if you count all the languages-to-English? So French to English, Spanish to English, etc -- combine them, and English ought to have the most completed trees, right?
Which tree is the longrest? Has the most lessons? Is hardest to complete? Meaning individual language x to language y tree?
25% of Duo users are from Spanish speaking countries, and 25% are from English speaking countries. 20% of Duo users are from the USA. No wonder Spanish has 17 million learners registered (English has over 35 million though).
This explains to a certain degree the "popularity" of Spanish (17 million USA citizens learning Spanish), and the sheer amount of learners (16 plus millions) that English has from Spanish (Spanish Latin-america contributes with 20% of users). The other factor Is that Spanish was one of the first two languages to be accessible (yet look at the enormously impressive performance of French which being the last, surpassed Portuguese, German and Italian - it would be interesting to know who is learning French - I accessed to it from English although my language is Spanish).
