German has reached 30 Million learners!
The German course for English speakers has reached 30 Million learners! Congratulations to the German team!
Is that the number of people who clicked the begin course button or the active learners?
It is the amount of people who have a Duolingo account and have wanted to learn German at one time or another. I don't think the active learners now means anything: for example; look at some users who have not been active for months now and have accumulated over 30,000 XP in German. People learning German now are still learning German the same way people did 6 months ago.
The German course is simply awesome, I use both Duolingo and RosetaStone to learn German, and both of them are great. So, I've invited some of my friends to use Duolingo. Thanks Duolingo and German team
