How to start Duolingo

Can someone tell me the Best way to start and use this program.

I have been using the duolingo for about 2 months, but I'm "finding" my way.

I would be nice if some one could give me the correct approach and how to navigate the system that is best.

For example should I go through each grouping or skip to each category .

For example should I go through each grouping or skip to each category .

The Duolingo Wiki is a good source for this kind of information:

Please have a look at http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Getting_started and read from "The language "skill tree""


Thanks much Now I've Got it!


You're welcome.
Here is the link to a discussion with a helpful overview for "Duolingo Wiki & FAQ (unofficial, but still amazing)"


do each individual lesson. The less you can "peek" the better. try to memorize the words after you "peek" once.

definitely read the discussion at the bottom of every question if you don't get it, chances are, someone else asked the same question.

the forums are also a great place to go for additional, or more in-depth questions.

don't be afraid to write stuff down too!

happy learning!


I think the best way to start is to just jump in and learn, but don't forget to review occasionally.
