German reached 6 million learners today!
Just thought I would stop by and congratulate you guys. The German community on Duolingo has really taken off :)
Portuguese has also reached a milestone, 2 million learners! French nearly has 10 million learners, and Italian nearly has hit 4 million learners. But Spanish leads the way and is dominating, hitting 15 million learners a couple of days ago!!
Wow. And if my trusty mathematics training doesn't fail me, that means that Duolingo has a total of over 31 million learners! And even that is not counting users who are learning English from other languages. I remember the day when 5 million total was a big milestone... :)
Going to be a bit less because some numbers will be double, triple or more counted due to someone learning more than one language but yes it is still a milestone.
Don't forget that many of the X -> English courses have significant numbers of users as well; Chinese -> English has 1.25 million!
I love how you've taken German being native and all! I am currently ploughing through, the grammar is hell but the language is really rewarding :)
I mostly did it to report errors and to improve my English. A year ago there was no English course for German speakers on Duolingo, so we had to do the reverse course.
I"m learning German (only level 2. :P) and I like it...specifically that ALL nouns are capitalized. No more 'proper' or 'regular' nouns for me! :)
Hurray for German! :) I'm learning it, and it's not the easiest, but it's interesting and it's really neat to realize that you can actually say a lot in another language.
I am super excited by this news. It is wonderful to hear that people around the world are working on improving themselves by learning a new language. I struggle in high school with four years of Spanish and very little stuck so I was skeptical but I have really enjoyed Duolingo and it has been wonderful. I always thought German was a hard language to learn but so far I have not had much difficulty, now I have only been at it a few weeks but already I am forming small sentences with the words that I know. I am very proud of myself for keeping up with my German even with a heavy school schedule. Everyone starts somewhere and as I long as I keep going I will master it eventually. Good luck to everyone!!!
In this case it is gramatically wrong to use "ein", here are the correct ones:
- Und ich bin einer (davon)! (learner of male or unknown sex)
- Und ich bin eine (davon)! (learner of female sex)
I trying to find German tv shows so i can improve my language skills. Any recommendations?
Extra Deutsch. They make this show for every major language. It is the same thing except different actors for the different language. It is free on you-tube. I use it to just learn pronunciation, even though I don't understand most of the words I hear the language and when I encounter a new word I try to speak it properly before Duolingo introduces it to me. It was made to help you learn the language being spoken.
Another recommendation is see if you can find a kids TV show that you like and try in find it in German. Since it is in another language you can sometimes find it free online. I want to do this with books as well once I get more of the language under my belt.
The verb (to be) is missing and the grammatically correct sentence is:
Wir sind die Besten!
That's great because it is hard to find German tuition even in London which is not terribly expensive
How many of them are natives who were just interested how far you can jump through with test outs? Didn't do anything else ....
it would be awesome if german learners would have their page as a duolingo community and will have chats and everything.
There is this German Discussion section. Why not simply open a new topic if you want to chat with your co-learners? Everyone can read it and contribute to the discussion. And further each profile has a public pinboard/timeline where you can post and discuss publicly.
I am taking the german for english speakers course - but I would like for it for portuguese natives. Anyone out there? Pretty please?
hi, i'm learning german but i can't pass to the next level...'food' and 'animal' it's kind of blocked...why is that? :/
