Spanish Club Code JAK9X2 - For anyone active each week!

Since Duolingo stopped making clubs available to search and join, I thought I would post here. Having been frustrated as a member of clubs where everyone including the administrator is inactive I have created my own - Spanish 140.

The goal is to earn 140 xp or more per week or risk being removed. Since I want to see clubs working again, for the time being anyone serious about learning Spanish and who stays active each week (I.e. earning any amount of xp) will not be removed.

So come join - Code JAK9X2 and lets have some fun learning together!!

I just joined and am looking forward to sharing tips, ideas and conversation. My spanish is pretty limited, however, I am working on improving. Feliz domingos!

Great news. Welcome, I have already seen you and look forward to your participation. It doesn’t matter how much or little Spanish you know, as long as you have fun and we all help each other out. Also stay active each week, or like Lexi B, let me know if you are going to be absent, otherwise you risk removal on sundays when I remove a number of inactive members to make way for people who want to learn Spanish. Bienvenido y buena suerte!

I think it's a great idea Practice makes perfect! I've never done this before how do I join?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/redsed

Hey Arelene1. Go to the club section in your mobile app, and I think there is an option to join club with Code, or “I have a Code”. Something like that. Then just enter JAK9X2.

Hope to see you there!

I couldn't find a way to join on my computer or my iphone. It only lets me invite.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/redsed

Does that mean you already belong to a different club?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Melyndi

hum... tried to join but looks like you're full


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/redsed

Hey Melyndi, I'm sorry! It did fill up very quickly but I am determined that this remains an active club and so not only will members who are not actually interested leave regularly, but each week on Sunday I will be removing the inactive members to make space for serious Spanish learners. I hope you keep trying, and hope to see you in the club.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/redsed

There is space at the moment if you want to try again!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DirtyHarri3

I have only been studying for 3 weeks, would the club be too advanced for me at this point?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DirtyHarri3

I tried to find the option you mentioned, but the club page changed a week ago and I don't see a way to join a club. Bummer


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/redsed

Hi there, I'm sorry you had difficulties. As I said earlier, because I want this to be an active club, during the week some members will leave of their own accord if they find Spanish is not for them after all. And then on Sunday, I will remove inactive members to make way for people like you who want to learn and are willing to be active in earning XP at least once a week. I hope you keep checking back because it doesn't matter if you have been learning for 1 day or 3 years, anyone is welcome. Good luck!!

Cool! I would love to join when space becomes available. I’ve been looking for something like this for a while now. =)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/redsed

Would love to have you! I am always removing inactive members so if you are interested let me know and I can coordinate a removal with when you are likely to be online and able to join. Otherwise Duolingo automatically fills any empty spaces in the club with new members within a few hours of space becoming available.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lexi_B.

Alright! Thanks! Mi familia va a ir de vacaciones en dos semanas. It’s unlikely I will be active during that time. If you’re still up in a months time I’d love to join then!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/redsed

No problem. I can either try and get you in before and leave you there whilst on vacation - I would not remove anyone inactive for a reason! Or, reply to this thread when you are back and ready to join and we will get you in then.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SamRees7

Hello there! Are there any free spots left?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/redsed

Hi there husidr. I do create free spots each week by removing inactive members to make room for active members. Two people from this thread, for example, have joined the club as a result of enquiries such as yours. It is an active club for all levels from absolute beginner through to level 25. If you are interested I can make room for you at a time you are likely to be online, or you can try your luck on Sunday afternoon (EST) which is when I go through the member list and start removing people. Let me know, and hope to see you in the club!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SSuperCandy

The club is full!, any chance you have an inactive member that I could replace please?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/redsed

Hi there. Absolutely. Two options for you - I do my usual removal of inactive members on Sunday afternoon normally around 2pm EST. If that doesn’t work for you, let me know when you are normally on line and I can coordinate a removal with you. Let me know what works for you.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/redsed

No hay problema. ¡ Espero verte en el club el domingo!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aayush7777

hi ! is this club still active ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/redsed

Very active!! I remove a selection of inactive members on Sunday afternoon at about 2pm EST. If you are interested in joining but not around on Sundays, let me know and I can make room at another time that works for you.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aayush7777

yeah mate , make room for me in the club whenever it is convenient for you. thanks !


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/redsed

No problem. I will make one space available now. Good luck!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ognjen974783

Also for me if it's not a problem, if you find someone inactive I'll try on sunday


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/redsed

Hi there. I can make a space today if you want. Let me know?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ognjen974783

If you are still there


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/redsed

If you see this message I am opening a space for you now! Good luck.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ognjen974783

It is still full. Nevermind... It would be better if we've set a time For example, 11.00 AM, 18.00PM... UTC?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/redsed

Ok. 1800 utc (1300 est) Again good luck!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bart.s88

Hi! I would like to join your club. Any chance you could make room for me? If not I will wait for an inactive member. Thanks!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/redsed

Hi there. Would love to have you join. I am traveling at the moment so not as attentive to our members as normal. However, if you are online now I can make room for you otherwise can you tell me when you are normally around? I won’t be doing my usual Sunday elimination this week but can definitely get you in at another time that suits. Let me know! Look forward to you joining!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bart.s88

Yes I am online right now.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/redsed

Great. I am opening up a space right now. Good luck.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bart.s88

Yes I got in. Thanks for the quick response, have a good trip!
