“You could imagine something with programming, maybe finding bugs in software as part of a course,” he says. “We may try it.”

I am intrigued...

Nice! Congrats for the great review Luis. I have to say - Duolingo has really been working for me. The article mentions that Duolingo takes you to an intermediate level... I wonder if you have plans to take it further?

Congratulations that Duolingo has been selected for an MIT review. Two things crossed my mind while reading the article: 1. about translations: "Multiple students translate the same sentence; software compares those results to settle on a final translation."; as of now the "final translation" is the "wisdom" of fellow users, isn´t it? 2. Maybe Luis could provide us with some background of his ideas about Duolingo on the Duolingo blog. Thanks.
