Duolingo helped me learn a language!!!

Ignoring my rather obvious title I would like to say -- I'm addicted to Duolingo. I can't wait to finish the whole course because I'm learning so much faster than my stupid French class at school. I don't understand half the things but here I can learn at my own pace. <3 you duolingo owl and the website :)

It is kind of addictive. I start many projects, but rarely do I finish them (one of my flaws). With Duolingo, I may not log in every day, but I'm finding I always come back . . . . so for me, that's a testament to this sites success and effectiveness.

I learned more on Duolingo in one week than I did in four years of school.

Happy to hear this! Thanks!

I tested out Duolingo by revising my rusty Spanish. It's so effective that I've finally taken the plunge into German, as well! The owl is rather adorable, but the system they use just seems to make the information stick. So delighted!

I'm learning more Spanish in a few days than I have in 8 years of daily Spanish classes in school!

I am from British Columbia (very much NOT French Canada) and I am moving to Quebec in a few months, so that seemed like a pretty good excuse to learn French. I was told about this site/app at just the right time. (And it seems it came into existence only last year so good timing, Duolingo!)

Yes, I am very impressed with the site. Discovered it quite by accident while I was trying to work out why my Captcha (ReCaptcha) wasn't working! Was impressed to learn that ReCaptcha has a philanthropic purpose ie. assists in digitising free books and took the web page up on its invitation to check out their other projects! (Learn a language while translating the web - very enticing!)

Yo soy un gringo, but I grew up around Latinos and always loved their culture and their appreciation for family. I picked up a few irrelevant phrases throughout the years, but seriously, I started Duolingo last night, and woke up speaking Spanish, albeit, like a beginner. I was off today, and in less than twenty four hours I am understanding and translating pretty well. Rosetta Stone never did it for me, but then again, I wasn't that enthusiastic at the time I used it. I don't know what it is about the format, but this website is amazing as hell. To say I'm glad I found it would be a gross understatement. I feel a whole new level of confidence in general about what we are capable of as individuals when provided with the right resources to learn new skills.

Ha ha didn't know this would actually be discussed x) For me it's always like "oh whatever french -_-" but can't break that owl's heart...and I also love how tempting the email reminders are (you're just that much far away from this!). So yup, all in all, [insert stereotypical french accent] zis is ze great idea! :P
