I'm looking at it right now and it seems like a good place to continue learning once you've completed the skill tree in duolingo. The only issue I have is that there is limited free content and most of it required a payment of either $8 or $18 per month. I was wondering if anyone else has tried it and also if anyone has any suggestions for other courses that continue beyond what duolingo offers.

I believe that once you have mastered the tree. Notice I say "mastered", not just completed. You will have enough of the basics that you won`t need to pay anyone for additional lessons. I completed the tree in three months but 445 days after starting duolingo I am still trying to master the tree. However, I started translating my native language of English into my target language of Spanish after I reached level 25. That was 15 months ago. Notice that I say native to target and not the other way around. Only through learning how to construct sentences into your target language will you actually be able to speak it. I do read Spanish and listen to the radio on top of all that. It is a long process but I can tell I am making progress daily and that is enough.

I'm currently extending my tree by reading, listening to podcasts, and trying to talk as much as possible. I'm also taking a weekly class that is more formal, and it's helpful to have others to talk to and a native speaker to guide us away from misconceptions.

I don't know that another computerized course would add any value over what I'm doing, even without the weekly class.

I quite like FluentU because it does give you some more listening practise at a much faster speed than duolingo.

FluentU has Japanese (yeah, and it is great!)! Videos, voice, music, real context (my English course for portuguese speakers on Duolingo is very "formal", I'm not very satisfied).
