I am starting to grow a love for languages in only three days thanks to Duolingo!
I joined Duolingo thinking it would help me with my grades, and not only has Duolingo delivered perfectly, but I am starting to feel like learning French is a prize and not a chore. Anyone else feel the same way?
I do. Except I don't feel so much love with Hungarian, yet. :)

Exactly! I started with Duolingo for the same reason as you. I needed to bump up my grades. Learning French is now enjoyable and I'm studying a lot aside from school assignments.
Yeah! I used to hate Spanish, but ever since I started using this as a Spanish tutor, I can't keep off. I think the language is beautiful and I can speak it perfectly, the trilled R and everything! :D
Their mission is to make learning fun, and i'd say duolingo have achieved that!!
So true! When I was at school and I had to learn german I didn't do so well as now and was less focused. There was no DuoLingo back then :) (We're talking about the ninetees) Doing German course now I have so much more fun with it and I am more eager to learn the language.
Congrats! Good for you! I think it always starts kind of slow at first, but after I while, you'll get to liking it a lot better!
I think lots of people really enjoy it on here - i introduced someone else to it and she finds it addictive. My comment though is that I personally need to understand the structure of a language so duolingo is not enough for me, I have also bought reading matter. So for he main language I am learning, which is Polish, I have bought some audio conversation CDs, a dictionary (smallish for now), A small essentials of grammar book, a very large grammar book, a grammar workbook with questions, one of those for later at intermediate, the Polish for Dummies book (which is very good) and a reading booking with some stories in it plus translation For my German I have also bought books but am not using them yet. Things work for different people but in Polish being able to understand the work and how verbs conjugate and nouns and adjectives decline, what case follows certain prepositions...for me I need books. But Duolingo is what is driving it
