My chatting experiences on other language learning sites have been negative. Too few people actually interested in learning. Without moderation/guidance/direction it ends up being the same few people saying the same old things = a social network. We already have the option of discussing lessons and/or posting on one another's threads..

Yes, it's really a good idea.I think it would be easy to learn and communicate with native speakers through chat directly.or at least we should have conversations in the lessons itself.

Not a good idea to add chat.Many other websites have that option and what i felt was that just attracts pervs.Maybe adding a message option is better ,because interested people can exchange contacts.

I like the idea if it is a Skype type chat. I know the words on the page, but I need to practice speaking....

Yessss, something along the line of skype but through Duolingo (probably old technology to you guys) would help a lot. ie native Spanish speakers speaking with folk learning to speak Spanish. Bring it on.

In addition to a chat room option, a private chat option would be nice too :) Kind of like facebooks

March 3, 2013

https://www.duolingo.com/jupiterrjazz

I changed my mind. I don't think it's a good idea. Though private messaging I think would still be nice

Sounds like it could be a good idea, but there are a couple places it could fail. Like a couple other people said, it could attract perverts/spambots/etcetera, but it could be very helpful. I'd like it if it was more geared towards a pen pal option; I'm learning Spanish and someone else is learning English, so we chat and correct each other.

Oh, I didn't know about Lang-8! Thanks for the link.

I left LiveMocha because I got loads of spam, and it seemed half way to a dating site. The noise drowned out the signal. We can already post things to our "friends" via the stream of whatever it is a stream of. So I am presently a 'No' for this.

I agree, this side should concentrate on individual studies. there are far more opportunities out there to chat

I think it's a good idea, but only if we can chat with our friends, and of coarse if french, right?

April 12, 2013

Yea. What if the chatting can only be designated to one's friends within the duolingo, so that spambots and pervs will not have access to chatting? Is this is a possibility?
