I think it would be cool if there were chat rooms for practicing whatever language you are currently learning with other people (Maybe close to the same language level as you?).

I think this is a useful idea, particularly if native speakers of the language joined in and helped people with their learning.

Indeed it would be great. As a french native speaker I would be happy to help out other people learning my language and would hope to be able to practice my Italian as well.

This would be very beneficial, especially if you could chat with those with the same level. Makes it a lot less intimidating :)

I get that it wouldn't be in a web browser, but why not just join into some IRC channel like freenode#duolingo-fr or freenode#duolingo-de?

This would make this website all the better, it combines all the best parts of language learning.

Danke! See, I need MUCH more practice. With VERY tolerant people.

After SRS (Spaced repetition) and translation, live exchange with others is naturally the next step in language learning. I'm not sure whether or not providing such an environment would go beyond duolingo's initial mission of "translating the web", but I'm all for it nevertheless. It's 2013 and there is hardly any decent chatroom for language learners out there that isn't either built in Flash (slow, not portable) or flooded with spammers and freaks looking for a relationship (annoying). Having said that, regardless of whether duolingo ever develops a chatroom or not, a basic integration with VoIP software (Skype, Ekiga, Ventrilo) would be a great start, and an IRC channel is a must!

I think that would be useful for people (like me) who learn the language but can't carry on a conversation.

Yeah, I think it would help so much. I am available to help Spanish Students in Duolingo, I'll help with pleasure. :)

An IRC channel would be really easy to set up. Password-protected channels and a few moderators (who could be "trusted users" would probably suffice to keep out the riffraff.

I'm unable to use a microphone with my computer, does the website correct your pronunciation? I think a chat room where users could connect and then talk to one another would be extremely beneficial or even utilize web cam access.

I am an English speaker, have taken 2 semesters of collège French, but need oral compréhension and conversational practice. I and a fellow classmate are looking for an online, skype, or text site for such to practice.
