Connecting learners together
I was wondering whether it would be possible for people to be connected who are learning similar languages so they can communicate direct and help each other to learn; this would be more useful than simply adding Facebook/Twitter friends.
If there could be a board where people could submit themselves, which is separated into languages in the same way the discussions thread, people could then easily find people with similar goals and share in the learning experience.
I am currently learning Italian and feel that having friends who are learning the same language would help me with my own. Hopefully this could bring the community of language enthusiasts closer together :)
It could even be a side bar underneath your current leaderboard which says "People at your level" where a selection of members at the same level/position as you on the tree your are studying. If you study multiple languages then those that study both those languages could be included. This would help people make connections to learn together; within or outside Duo.
Currently going on Reddit is like going through the discussion thread on Duo and doesn't have much organisation and isn't particularly good for interaction; more problem solving.
