i love science tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

I love science. It's actually mysterious and we will never know all of science since science is like a endless pit we have to explore. Science is also everything, ranging from astronomy to artificial technology.

Frankly, the subjects taught at Khan Academy are much more crucial than second-language education provided by Duo.

I use Duolingo more as a hobby than anything. Scientific/mathematical literacy takes precedence over bilingualism. So for that reason, I voted for Khan Academy. I still love both sites though and I think both are doing great things.

Knowing English is a pre-requisite to learning science and math these days. So many people in this world don't know any English, or enough English, to use Khan Academy. Duolingo is helping close that gap in giving everybody an equal chance to learn science and math. It is addressing a more basic human need. Even though a second language for an English speaker is a luxury, learning English for a non-native English speaker opens the door to so much more kinds of knowledge, and this makes it an essential need.

I'm convinced! Very good argument, Samir. Also, if this Duolingo experiment succeeds in reforming virtual translation of the web, they could integrate with Khan Academy to accurately translate its website to many different languages.

beyond that, i fell the ability to communicate with others is more important than scientific and mathematical literacy (and those ARE important), so even when it is an English speaker learning another language, I would still call that a more basic and more extensive benefit.

Wow, I've never heard of Khan Academy before, but it looks excellent. I had no idea there was such a thing out there. Thanks for describing it, because I might not have checked it out otherwise. :)

There's no way that Duolingo doesn't take this. Khan Academy has been around for so much longer (can it even be considered a startup anymore?); plus they don't even have any of the MOOC moguls like Coursera and edX listed.
