Sorely missing a proper overview page for available language courses

I wanted to recommend Duolingo to some Spanish speaking friends, but I suddenly realized I had no idea whether Duolingo offered English-Spanish lessons akin to the Spanish-English lessons I'm currently taking.

In the end I didn't find the answer on Duolingo. Instead, Wikipedia came to the rescue: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duolingo

But Duolingo really ought to have a proper overview of your available language courses.

Well actually, when you sign up, you have to choose what language you want to learn and all the languages they teach show up.


Problem is, that page is hidden away inside the sign-up process, when it really should be a universally accessible page, whether you're a guest, in-registration or already logged in.

Duolingo doesn't have a good info page that explains "You can learn any one of these languages, provided you know one of these other languages."

It should show the following with better visuals:

English to other languagues:

  • English -> Spanish
  • English -> French
  • English -> German
  • English -> Portugese
  • English -> Italian

Other languages to English:

  • Spanish -> English
  • French -> English
  • German -> English
  • Portugese -> English
  • Italian -> English


I think erlend_sh has a point. If he wasn't sure that Duolingo had a Spanish -> English section, then, that's a problem when in fact, Duolingo has a robust Spanish -> English section.
