How many people are learning German on Duolingo?
It is the only language with different numbers listed. Now I know it might not seem important, but everyone counts! 900,000 people is more popular than the 6th most learnt language on Duolingo.
It is more than 13M people. You have to count the people learning it from Spanish, Russian etc... But There is top 1.5M Active learners I would say. Because Most of the people are not using Duo anymore or just gave up
If you know both languages very well, you can apply to join the team and improve the tree. Since you are a beginner, you should not hold your breath though ;)
Excellent question. I wonder about this a lot because it is German and I wonder. I have read 100 million people speak in Europe but it is not very popular to learn in US (as even Mandarin) or other areas outside Europe for some reason. Or to clarify, maybe just not as popular as French or Spanish. Interesting .
