Mine is poeticsteph - just like my fórum name.

My Spanish and Portuguese trees are years old, so many branches have fallen.

I started using it for Dutch this year.

I am sporadic with my use - but do Dutch and Portuguese a few times a week. :)

My username on Duolingo is _kaas_ :)

I sort of use it on and off. To be honest even after all this time I'm still trying to get used to the new crown system :roll:

Right now I'm using it for some occasional Chinese when I feel like it, and sometimes German. Whenever they add new content I like to test out of Japanese because I can :lol: I think I may start using it to continue with Arabic.

Latin came out yesterday! It's... supposed to be classical pronunciation, but they're ignoring vowel length and there are no macrons. I don't think they went with nasal vowels, which works have been more authentic. Also, in one of the recordings they pronounced a v as /v/ instead of /w/. Hopefully that's an error and not systemic.

I've just noticed that the owl has brought back spaced repetition (now via "cracked" skill indicators).


I have a few cracked skill units across a few languages, so it appears the update has now rolled out to the web version of duolingo.

I was afraid I might awake to broken skill shards strewn about everywhere. Then I read the fine print and realized you have to actually get some of them up to level 5 to trigger the cracks. I think I might be able to lazy my way under the radar for now.

The audio in the Latin course is too horrible for me to handle. Dunno if that's just me being weirdly picky about it?

*sigh* well, I'll treat that as a sign that I should get back to Lingua Latina per se Illustrata :D

I am nuttyredhead


Haven't used Duolingo for a few years now, I finished the Spanish tree and then did the reverse tree.

I do check in every now and then to see the updates everyone talks about and then usually get bored with it after a couple of days. Seems there's a lot more levels now...

I'm Sal767989 (my username is random generated, how awkward :lol: )


I'm studying Russian from Spanish. I had no idea there were different techniques for approaching Duolingo until I read this thread, and I've really liked the pyramidal one. I'll probably stick to that method from now on.

I appreciate corrections in any language :D
