I Can't Wait!
I am so excited about the language creation tools coming out. You could easily say that I am too excited about it. I constantly think about it, it is like my whole world orbits around that one thought. I am also having trouble sleeping because of it. Does anyone have any tips? Do I have an attachment problem?
Although Duolingo is an AMAZING tool, you can't learn Korean solely from it. Korean is too complicated for Latin and Germanic based language speakers. Not to mention how strange the slang and grammar is. I would say use Duolingo, only as part of your training.

Source: I am on an intense Korean language program that aims to make me fluent by New Year's.
I may have mislabled it. It is not "a" program, but multiple. I am using Living Language Korean, various textbooks and dictionaries written in Korean, Memrise, a book on slang. I watch a lot K Dramas and repeat everything they say. I go into total immersion and not speaking any other language but Korean when I can. It's expensive to start with all the books, but I believe it's worth it. Soon, I hope to add Duolingo.
