feel free to join the Facebook group I just created: https://www.facebook.com/groups/256301394545508/

We can discuss meetups there. :)

Are you talking about Polyglot Gathering? I hope to join it. But maybe we should make separate topic so everyone could get to know about it. Or do you mean separate meeting? That would be cool too. I am definitely coming for it!

And I personally think that Berlin is pretty easy to get to from many other European cities :)

This is a great idea! I'd also like to through Köln into the mix (mostly just curious if there any other users in the area!).

I am going to try and come. I will have to take a day off from school to do it, and will probably spend the entire day in NYC with my dad, having fun, and then go to this later. The thing is, the meeting is fairly late and it's a few hours drive to NYC.

Perhaps the Duolingo team can design "something" on this website so we can invite others to our own meetups in our cities? I LOVE the idea. Have fun!

January 30, 2014

We are working on adding features like that. It's in the plans! We want to make it easier for community members to meet up. This is just the beginning :)

Thank you very much.

January 31, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MystyrNile

Do you know a way to say that with fewer words, perhaps more colloquially?

Gloss of English: {polite/optional command, second person} respond

Gloss of French: {command, "respond"} {second person} {IF} {second person} {like}

The English phrase expresses a lot of this in a single word.
