Can anyone speak a new language completely just from this site?

I'm new here and already I can tell this website is pretty good. But is anyone speaking any language fluently just by using this?? Just wanna know if I should take the lessons and be able to speak Spanish to people in the end.

Duolingo is not intended to bring people to fluency. It is great for building a solid start with grammar and vocabulary. :)

Unfortunately it can't. However in my opinion, it does do a very good job at building vocabulary and teaching all the basics. After learning for almost 3 years I can understand about 40% spoken German. :-)

No but it's great to start with.

I started from scratch with Portuguese 962 days ago and now read and write it fairly well. I started studying Portuguese on Duo but have supplemented my studies, at first with the late Immersion feature, and then by reading books of increasing difficulty in Portuguese.

I am a lifelong student of language and Duo has really helped me expand my horizons. It is an exciting tool to get started learning a language and I have taken advantage of what Duo has to offer, but Portuguese is the only language that I have started here that I would begin to approach any kind of fluency in.

Regarding the person with a blue ring claiming to be a staff member in this discussion yesterday saying they would fire me at noon, it is 2:27pm. I'm still here for those wondering. Staff have blue rings and mods have green rings. But, only in the forums. If those rings still show up on their profile, it's not a real staff person or moderator. :)
