34 hours of Duolingo Spanish equals a college-level semester of elementary Spanish. Would love to do a study in German.

Personally, I average around 400XPs per hour.

So, about 13600 XP's on Duo equals approximately one semester of college level Spanish?

Don't know yet. That's why I want to conduct additional studies. DUOLINGO is making huge claims based on one study conducted in 2012.
