Why use clubs?
I'd like to hear why people use the club feature on the mobile app. I joined a club with a couple friends, but I honestly found it pretty useless. I guess you can see how active everyone is on their studying, but I could already see that on the desktop site.
Maybe I'm not using the clubs for how it's meant to be used, so please let me know why you like it. Thanks!
In the Android app you get some achievements only when you use clubs ;)
I often just forget to study Spanish. When you are in a club with a couple of friends, you have a reason to keep doing it and, compete for who gets most XP in a week, and, most importantly, they can remember you to keep doing DuoLingo if you keep forgetting to do it.
I'm part of an active Swedish club with people I don't know at all, several of which are active Duolingo'ers. Most of the time I ignore it, but it's fun sometimes to try and win first place for the week. It's really only fun on the Android app, as RosieStrawberry mentioned.
