I may actually end up just contacting the duolingo team as I have no idea if anyone of them visit these discussion forums. But why shouldn't we setup a Mumble server where people can get on and discuss together!

We have a fairly large gaming community[NA & EU] with a 1000 slot Mumble server and for someone with bandwidth (something DuoLingo has to have) and a spare Linux box, you can easily setup a Mumble server.

DuoLingo Management, if you are interested, feel free to PM me and I can talk with you about the ideas. I think it'd be great to extend and build the already great community you guys have.

For those that might not know what Mumble is, it's a voice chat tool like Skype but it allows TONS of folks to be in different channels and communicate with each other. Free, fun and helpful tool with built-in chat abilities too.

Cheers! Trae

Sorry for being rash, but what is the Mumble server?

No problem at all. A Mumble server is a voice chat server. You and I (and 10, 20, more) other folks could get together and help each other and practice what we've learned on duolingo.com

Think of it as "Skype" for the masses with permanent / persistent channels for people to talk.

You'd probably set it up like the following:

DuoLingo General Chat - Spanish - German - French - language

People could go into the different channels and talk with other folks about that particular language. Furthermore, you might have channels in the main language channel like this:

  • Spanish
  • Help
  • Spanish Chat
  • Beginners

etc...

Hope this helps!
