Usagiboy7 was always very inspirational to many people. Very kind and dedicated. All of the forum mods are, really.

I'm inspired by the achievements of many multi-level 25's; PennyWhistler, Blazerunner and Alec737 to name a few out of the dozens.

I also know some very kind people who talk to me somewhat often, and they've inspired me in more ways than one.

I think Duolingo is a magnet for inspirational people; polyglots and enthusiasts alike and everything between the two. It's one the the things I like most about this website.

Pennywhistler tops my list. She has a knack for knowing when I need a boost in morale, and her delight in learning languages is contagious!

    Usagiboy7 inspired me, along with with Lrtward.

    DuoFlash and BlazeRunner. A_User and PennyWhistler. Hyllning and CharmingTiger.

    All these people are my inspirations and they are what drove me to come back to Duolingo, after being away a while. They're really good people, go give them a follow!

      I always get inspired.

      Constantly by those new,

      wonderful, lovely, learners

      with abounding curiosity

      A lot of those have been inspiring me as well! Good list!

      Pennywhistler is who inspire me.

      I'm speechless. Thank you for putting me on your list! I have way too many friends who have inspired me to list them all here (you know who you are!), but I have to mention our amazing moderators, and particularly Sitesurf, who has done twice as much for my French as everything else put together, and even for my understanding of English grammar when I've had to research something to be able to answer her questions. Thank you Sitesurf, all the other mods, and everybody else!

      SimoneBa.

      Tons of useful posts on German, plenty of helpful comments when I was learning it via Duo, and also writes a couple of great blogs.

      Luís for coming up with the idea of Duolingo in the first place. Jitengore for making Sunday evenings more exciting and enjoyable. And also many of the volunteers actually making the courses.

      September 7, 2016

      Two of the (very many) people who greatly inspire me are revdolphin and jackelliot. These two Duolingoers were some of my very first friends on Duolingo. And they are still here! (Those who don't know, I started here September 2013).

      Revdolphin ended up with his dream job that requires him to use Spanish daily. (For his privacy, I won't say what that job is, but, it really warms my heart that he has it and that it is bringing him such joy.)

      jackelliot has been an amazing source of gentle and kind welcome for new Duolingoers since he arrived and has continued to be all this time.

      :)

      I think Ektoraskan and Shady_arc. They've both provided a lot of help to me here, and they've also inspired me to learn other languages without even realizing it.

      September 7, 2016

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Alxaphy-

      nice :)

      CharmingTiger, lindakanga, -Katrina.-, and she-of-many-names, Annie. :) These are just a small sample of the incredible and inspiring people in this community, but they are a good representation of the kind of amazing people we have here. :)

      September 10, 2016

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Usagiboy7

      "she-of-many-names" hahaha so accurate!

      September 10, 2016

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ME2300

      I know right? She has several different profiles and I couldn't choose which one to use, so I figured most people would know who she was. xD

      September 10, 2016

      Oops? ;) xD Thanks Mads :)

      Aw, thanks for putting me on your list, Maddie! :) I can't agree more with your list; they're all amazing people...

      And you deserve to be on that list too! You are an inspiration every day. Of course, you can't exactly put yourself on your own list, so I'll just have to mention you instead. ;)

      September 10, 2016

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ME2300

      Thanks Kat. :)

      Maddie! You inspire me in so many ways. The amazing creativity of your brain, and the skill you have at transferring that expression to your hands to make astonishingly good works of art via drawing and painting, it's incredible! I truly admire you.

      If art is expression in a medium, than let us all make art in our own special way.

      Thank you for being my friend. ლ (ᵔᴥᵔ) ლ

      (I hope he doesn't mind me putting him), but someone who really inspired me is PCHO_G5_CI. It amazes me that he is able to speak a language different from his native language so fluently. Some others are: Lindakanga

      Theo_Matrakas

      -Katrina.-

      And some others :)

      September 7, 2016

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-Katrina.-

      Oh my gosh, I can't believe I'm on your list! Thank you so much; I'm happy to hear that I've impacted someone. :D

      Great streak, by the way. :)

      I think people who are moderators. People like usaigiboy7 jrkihal and Lrtward

      September 7, 2016

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

      I'm going to have to give a shout out to vvsey, basically my current patron saint of Hungarian who always had all the answers to help me get through the particularly difficult middle of the Hungarian course. Honorable mentions to Shamarth the Wizard of Hungarian specializing in grammar technicalities, and jsiehler the Wizard of Hungarian specializing in localizing Hungarian quirks for Americans like myself.

      September 8, 2016

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

      All the members of the DuoFam: A_User, CharmingTiger, ALousyUsername, Blue_Basket_Girl, and everyone else! Of course, all of the moderators, but I think I have to give a special mention to Sitesurf, who has taught me so much about French. Thank you to everyone who has answered any of my questions on the forum as well.

              I have several people to thank for my success on Duolingo. The first is Macjory who got me started with ideas on how to make progress. Two others include Licielo and Ana Arias who when I got stuck dug me out of my doldrums. Last and far from least is my team of Yaza and Camila-danesa who have been willing to stick with me and make gradual progress. While we seek perfection getting better makes me constantly feel good. They give me ideas and spur me on getting better each day. My goal is to someday be like my friends and team and speak the Spanish language like I do the English language with confidence.

              Ohmigawd people who inspire? Well... That's hard to condense into one list but I'll try ;) First up you got the D4JAM squad + Aaren & Lexa (and of course my besties)..... Then you've got my fam which includes people like Bunneh, Alexis, Tigs, Katrina etc etc. Ok let's be HONEST, it's everyone.

              Usagiboy7, Lrtward, and Lindakanga for helping people, MagicalMaya13 and blUE_BaSkEt_GirL for my contest-hosting side, and Iphigenia for INSANE XP. Right now I don't have time for tons of XP, but if I could, I'd Duo all day.

              Thank you for thinking of me, I am also inspired by your dedication to learning languages and your amazing performance in Hebrew.

              There are so many other people here who have inspired me that the list would be a long one, so I'll just say thanks to you all, you know who you are. :-))

              I am always inspired by anyone who says I was helpful or motivates me. (no, I am not thinking of you, Duolingo streak emails).

              Vinnfred has been a big hero of mine, super helpful on the Ukrainian forums. She replied to one of my first comments and said I was right and corrected me. Really it was nothing big, but I remember jumping up and down, shocked. This is why I love helping new users, because you never know what you are doing for them.

              Every moderator has been absolutely amazing and inspiring. Usagi, Lrtward and Lindakanga are so helpful and awesome.

              The remaining list would be: Anise1105, betatron, EpicNougat, -Katrina- (of late), flootzavut, A_user and onthehype25. They are wonderful people, very helpful and welcoming to all.

              I am sure I am forgetting plenty. Kudos to all my followers and everyone else I am forgetting!
