what's your opinion of adding a chat option
i think it's a great idea to improve our new languages by sharing
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....
With messages Say I learn Spanish and your first language is Spanish so I learn a d practice in the same site :) You get my point
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
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.
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?
