I love Duolingo.
I currently learn:
Image German - essential language in Europe
Image Danish - both sisters learn it, also a very interesting language
Image Dutch - also a major language in Europe
Planned:
Image Romanian - one of my close friends is Romanian
Image Spanish - reportedly, soon Spanish will be the #1 most spoken language in the world.

On other days i resort to being ambitious yet inept

Wait, did I just read "Dutch" and "major language" in one sentence? :lol:

I have completed Image Swedish and I'm following Image Spanish. I also started with Image Danish, Image Norwegian and Esperanto, but I didn't work on those for a while.

I had professional education in Image Dutch, Image English and Image German. I also had professional education in Image French, but I dropped the course because I was struggling with it a lot.

I'm interested in Swedish and German. Do you suggest me Doulingo (I didn't know of it before) or Babel?

Yup. but, in order to learn Swedish, I have to set my language on "English" in Doulingo. So, this is more tedious for me.

Thanks for telling me about this site! :)

I can only speak English and very little German because learning languages in school in the UK is a joke if you were to get a A* in a language, you would only be able to pick out phrases of someone speaking you recognize and only speak and write German phrases you can remember

But i wish to Learn Dutch because I am quarter Dutch plus learn French, Spanish

Well, you're lucky, you don't have to study English which all European schools study for years :D

Checked this out after seeing this thread. It seems like a fun way to learn. How detailed does it get? Might get the app and actually learn German. Shame it dosen't have Croatian/Serbian though. :(
