Duolingo is great! And our community is great! One reason why people come is to check out the top notch learning platform, and in my opinion, an important part of what helps people continue when they hit the rough patches is the warm, welcoming, and helpful atmosphere created by everyone here. (And the severely awesome gamification xD)

5 stars for Duolingo!! ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

not really when you see how much is spent on pictures, paintings art,, football players .. etc wealth and money are always relative and contextual to the situation ... the old story of comparing apples and pears remain true in that even similar things are distinctly different Och aye here are five new stars (lingots) miaow

Man more people should hear about this awesome website, after 3 months I feel comfortable chatting with a Native Spanish speaker. Instead of taking pictures for instagram and twitter, I would rather spend my free time learning in Duolingo and making friends with different people from around the world.

Luis says that Duolingo is not yet profitable. I hope that they can achieve positive cashflow seeing that they are already in the C series of fund raising.

But here is what I'm most excited about from this article:

"In the coming months, Duolingo plans to provide a $20 accredited certification test that can be proctored remotely over a person's computer, saving the expense of traveling in person for an exam."

Would be cool if we can get official certification in a language through Duolingo!

@J-Stevens,

I'm pretty excited about that too! I hope they also keep the free (purchase by lingot), non-accredited version as well. :)
