Duolingo alternatives?

What are some good Duolingo alternatives? I just saw someone mention Memrise and I made an account on there. I just feel that Duolingo is not the "go to" learning tool and it's necessary to use other tools alongside this. So far, I've watched some movies in French with English subtitles and I've summarized a few articles from French websites (lesoir.be, afp.fr).

As a side note, I saw someone post that Duolingo is going downhill, focusing more on mobile, removing Immersion, et cetera. Because of this, I realized that Duolingo is not the best tool to learn a language, it's useful but is must be used alongside other tools and resources in order to fully "capture" a language and learn proficiently.

Duolingo is very good for the first stage of learning a language. I don't use anything else at the same time until a later stage. After I finish a tree I start using other resources to practise speaking, reading, etc.

Fully agreed. That is the way I approach learning new languages also. Duolingo makes it so easy to get the basic grasp of a new natural language. Then use some other tools (e.g. flash cards) or even (online) books to deepen the knowledge.

A good way to do learn a language (besides learning it on websites) is to actually get someone to practice with in person (or Skype). Or to read it, listen to it, etc. by whatever means. YouTube, books, movies, etc.

I don't think any one tool (online is the best tool to learn a language however . . . you can't beat YouTube. You alone will provide people reading books, professional audio-books, films with French or English subtitles, childrens' songs, language lessons for children (in French or English), French video blogs, and many songs in French.

Mango languages, but that might only be on mobile.
