Age on Duo?

I want to know who uses duo the most. Is it middle-aged, college, middle school, high school, just-out-of-college...? Please give me an accurate age poll or something. Thanks!

I am retired school teacher, youthful 70 year old. I am planning some trips to Spain and Cuba for a start. I would like to be a traveler more than a turista. I just love Duolingo and all the participants!

I am still waiting for a regular user to post that they are older than me. (75). Also a retired teacher, and also love Duo. Youthful also? Depends on the day. ;)

Someone posted here that they were 81 not too long ago. I can't remember the name though:/

Wow. That's pretty old for Duolingo. Never heard of anyone like that.

August 5, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BastouXII

The older I've heard of was above 90, maybe 94, I'll do a little research to see if I can find him/her.

Found it! S/he is 97, or that's what they're saying!

August 5, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tara668

I don't think that's old for Duolingo at all. If you can take in information and assimilate new knowledge/skills, then I think you're the perfect age, whatever the number.

True. I just think that when anybody says any thing over 60, us young kids immediately connect that to ancient. It's like a genetic defect, speaking as one of the "young kids."

How can it be an accurate poll? There are many millions of Duolingo users and you may get a few dozen replies if you are lucky.

You could always create a survey on, say, Google Forms and invite people to do their clicks there.

July 30, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ooreilly

Yeah, but who connects to something from the web? Could be anything. Plus, people occasionally lie about their age.

I am incredibly old and incredibly wise.

July 30, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KerryLynne1

I'm in my 50's, so I guess that is considered middle-aged.

July 31, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/malkin50

50s is splendid, so you are splendid!

July 31, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ooreilly

Middle-aged is always ten years from how old you are :-). However, you get a HUGE party when you're fifty, so it all works out.

I'll be 20 in three weeks, according to your calendar :-p

July 31, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ilmarien

Hahaha, and would those be the 20 years you knocked off in the post above? :D

In all seriousness, I'm not dreading 30 as much as I thought I'd be - though it'd probably have been different if I were the oldest of my friends instead of the youngest. Hopefully I'll finally start feeling like an adult!

Yes, give or take a year or two :-p I'm not dreading 50 at all... at least not until next year! :-D

No, that's my nickname, Drama Queen. I do a lot of theater around here (in fact I just directed my first show a few months ago!)

Sorry :( (i couldnt think of anything else it could stand for at the moment and I have wondered almost every time I see something you post.) that's awesome!! Congratulations what was the name of the show?

We did one of my favorites that I've now been a part of three times, "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown". The first time, which was a scene study, I was Charlie Brown. The second time, which got cancelled, I was Snoopy. Third time around, I directed.
