We launched the Duolingo website two years ago at 10:08am EST. It was supposed to be at 10:00am -- lots of people were waiting -- but Tony, Vicki and Severin were still making last minute changes. And then Ryan wanted to change the background color of the whole site. But in the end it worked out, and we were only 8 minutes late :) We couldn't believe we had a whopping 17,000 users that first day.

A lot has happened since then:

Thanks for all of your support! We are spreading free language education together.

2 years now? Impossible! That was too quick :)

Je dois vous remercier pour votre site web! Je ne suis pas parfait mais avec l'aide du duolingo et sa communauté j'ai appris assez français pour faire le bac! J'espere toujour pour l'opportunité de parler le français. Quand on ira en france cet ete je parlerai tout le temps!

He mejorado mi espanol y ahora puedo charlar y hacer bromas. Hice un intercambio con espana y gracias a ti, yo pude disfrutar de la vida, sabiendo que pude hablar bien el Espanol. Encontré la gente que fue asombrado de mi abilidad en el idioma. Siempre estuve hablando el Espanol (y mis discursos estuvieron llenos de errors pero) cada persona me pudo entender!

Asi, hace falta declarar que duolingo es simplemente el mejor sitio de internet para aprender las lenguas y como las lenguas te dan tanto confianza, experiencia, inteligencia y sentido en la vida, aqui estamos aprendiendo por la vida

Ta orm deir go bhfuil is fearr broduil me!

Finally a chance to learn what should be my native tongue! Go raibh mile maith agaibh agus is athas orm mar chonaic me "an gcursa gaeilge" sa pictuir ón goradáin (The pic from the incubator!)

So now thanks to duolingo the world has many more aspiring polyglots, aiming to learn for work, holidays, willingness to preserve cultures, improve their minds, making them want to get out more and live life through language. Still full of errors but who wants perfection? Now I feel I still have loads more to go, a reason to keep going and its good!!!

Gracias, danke schoun, merci, go raibh mile, grazie, obrigado, ačiū,labai and thanks loads. Gratias tibi ago.

And one big happy birthday

I can only recognize Luis from this image, and I think that the tall blond women with the blue dress in the bottom row is Myra, but I'm not sure, can someone indetify them all?

I think Mukkapazza is the second one (left to right) on the bottom row.

Myra is the one in the mustard colored shirt, next to the juggler. I've had it confirmed. ^^
I think the one in the blue dress could be Gina, Gina's tall'ish... but not that tall, so I think Gina is next to Luis and Severin, being a press officer and all :P

Happy Duoversary to Luis and the team! I only joined a couple of weeks ago and I am already hooked! It has been a great tool and I hope it continues to be as I progress.

I am using it to learn a few languages so that I can communicate with my patients, especially in Spanish and French as I hope to join Médecins Sans Frontières at some point after I graduate and hopefully Duolingo will be a big part of that, communication is such an important tool when someone is ill or in distress so thanks Duolingo!

Wow. I can't believe how much I've missed :( I've been here since late April 2014 (at the earliest, on another account) and I really wish I was able to see all of this. 4 million the first year. 30 million the second year. That's basically 7 and 1/2 times the amount from the previous year! Surpasses Rosetta Stone (totally not worth it, heard it just threw vocabulary words at you) in Google searches. Won "iPhone app of the Year" during its second year (an impressive feat). Wins "Best Educational Startup at the 2014 Crunchies (same year). And with a team of only 32 employees! All in 2 years... just amazing. Duolingo team, you have really worked so hard to get all this recognition. And 30 million! Think of it as 30 thousand thousand people who signed up for free language education! Thanks a bunch, Duolingo team, for making free language education around the world more accessible to everyone. Happy #duoversary!

Can I coin the term Duoversity? It just hit me, reading this story in the WSJ while waiting for family at the airport in Des Moines, about this Venezuelan entrepreneur whom created Open English, and is making a lot of money, and planning to launch an online university. Once proved to the world that you can teach and learn any language "for free", why not doing the same with formal courses in different fields? We can reach the sky some times. The university of the future is Duoversity! http://online.wsj.com/articles/online-school-has-100-000-students-one-subject-1403050947

@jorma1998b I love when people creatively link words to Duolingo. This is the first time I've heard of "Duoversity". It now joins the list I'm keeping in my head:

EDIT: I'm sad to be the bearer of such news to you: First time "Duoversity" showed up on Duolingo, coined by user Atanaa.) https://www.duolingo.com/comment/2051755

  • Duolingoer--A Duolingo user
  • Duolingoter--A Duolingo user who gives away a lot of lingots (??)
  • Duoredditor--A Duolingo user who is also involved in the Duolingo reddit (I'm not sure if this is any user or just the D.R. moderators.)
  • Duoversary--Duolingo's 2nd birthday (though, I wonder if people will use it to mark the passing of each year regardless)
  • Duowikian--A Duolingo user who is an editor at the Duolingo wiki. and now Duoversity! :D

In that sense, you are a perfect toddler any mom would be so proud to have! :) It would be nice if you could update the previous timeline, I am sure a lot has happened in these past 12 months! :) I strongly believe that "knowledge is the only treasure that increases on sharing".
