Do you think Duolingo is good for learning Italian?

I mean, I really would like to know what do you think about this. I'm starting with Italian; I know English and Spanish. I don't know if I should stay here..

I have been learning Italian here since they started back in January or so. I am still very inept at speaking it but I have become quite good at reading it. So I would say yes its very good for learning the basics of Italian.

Like Quazar, I feel that I can read more Italian, even occasional pick some words that little old Italian ladies bombard me with. :D

I feel like I'm learning to read it and write it very quickly, and speak it some. Understanding it spoken by actual Italians, however, is an area I'm very lacking in.

Have you seen the Hagen Daaz Gelato commercial yet? That's really ridiculous for me to follow. >.<

I think DuoLingo is a perfect supplement for learning italian. It is fantastic for learning new vocabulary and practicing verb conjugation. BUT I can't imagine if I had tried to begin learning here without first learning how verbs and sentence structure work.

Really? I knew absolutely zero Italian grammar when I signed up, and it's teaching me very well. There has been a little Googling once in a while to clarify something, though.
