Latin Classroom/Community

Would anyone be interested in creating a Duolingo Classroom for learning and practicing Latin? We can discuss the Latin exercises in Duolingo and also share other learning materials, engage in conversation, play games, exchange lingots, and have a fun learning environment. Reply if interested and we can get something started!

[EDIT: Duolingo Classroom is NOT a good place for community and conversation! I would still be interested in doing this on another platform but not on Duolingo.]

Beware of joining a classroom run by anyone you do not know personally. Classrooms are not clubs. The "teacher" in a Classroom can limit your access to the forums and even reset your Duolingo password.

If you would like to set up a Latin group on Facebook or Discord or something (just beware of oversharing information), then that's fine. But a Duolingo Classroom is not a good idea.

I did not realize this. I would be just as glad to do a Google Classroom or a discussion group on another platform, but I was hoping to create some more fun here on the Duolingo site.

I get that. And I agree that something better on Duolingo would be fun. :) Unfortunately, this was what Duolingo's Clubs were for, but they got pulled some time ago and were replaced by the Leagues. So I'm afraid you'll have to look outside of Duolingo if you'd like to go through with such a project.

Sorry to be a bummer, it's just how Duolingo is set up. You've still got plenty of options, and there's no saying you can't use them; it's just that Duolingo itself isn't the way to go.

Here's to hoping you'll find a reasonable alternative. :) Best of luck to you!

Features like follows and lingots are so underused! There is nothing to get in the shop; we can give each other lingots but why? I want more ways to interact.

there is a Discord server for Latin already, they try to stick to Classical latin and have resources, although it was not created specifically to discuss the exercises on Duo I think people there would be glad to do so
