Communication in Duolingo
I am one of the many users that has recently come back after an arbitrary hiatus in their learning process. In my case, I'm now persevering on the Russian tree. Aside from the numerous new language courses hatched, the limitations in communication are what caught my attention the most. I mean, if the website's premise is built upon a free community of language learning, why is individual communication supressed? I may be missing something out of this, just wanted to share my thoughts and possibly hear insights from people that feel the same as me.
