    Just took a look at this duolingo thingy. Turns out they actually plan having a Klingon course around August 2017...

    Still waiting for R'lyehian to make its appearance though.

    @Shandyr I studied German & French in high school, so now might be a good time to brush up on those. Then again, I'd love to learn Russian or Chinese (Mandarin) next. Looks like they don't have Chinese though.

    I'm using Memrise for japanese. It's got good stuff for learning words, but I'm having real trouble with kanji and sentence structure.

    I added @Shandyr before checking out your handle @BeaverGuy from the picture. Is that you as well?

    P.S. I earned 20 XP in Russian already! Davai, @JuliusBorisov join us on Duolingo :D

    So I was wondering how duolingo could be free and free of advertisement.
    I googled it and the answer is mind blowing and jaw dropping. WOW!

    Watch this video completely. Mind blowing. I will not take away the answer.
    Watch the video and let it explode your mind.



    This simply is amazing.

    I watched it and I have to agree. That is amazing.

    I've used Duolingo on and off for a few years now and it simply is the best online language learning tool I've found. In case people missed it, it is also available as an app. I used it all the time on the subway on my way to work to improve my spanish and esperanto among others. Yeah, they have esperanto and that is awesome. I have the same username there as here if anyone feels like adding.

    @JoenSo lol why have you done Swedish

    And I added you @Shandyr ! Hah, @FinneousPJ that's kind of a funny story. They have some kind of "test your skills" test you can take if you're already familiar with a language. So I took it for my native Swedish because I was curious what the course would look and sound like. So I try this test for a few minutes and suddenly... I get 3000 xp and go to level 11 in Swedish. I guess I'm just that good at my... native... language.

    Also, there is a japanese course on its way. You can check out coming courses at https://incubator.duolingo.com/

    Well, apparently I'm only 5 % fluent in Swedish these days. "Do you want to add this to your Linkedin profile?" Duolingo asks. Since I work as a language consultant in Swedish I'm going to say thanks but no thanks.

    @JoenSo While not a foreign language it's not my native language so I'm not quite the cheat as you!

    It's not cheating! It's meta-gaming.

    I eat beef. I love beef. Give me beef,

    Now if I was speaking to a Frenchman, I would say it like this...

    I eata da beefa. Le Beef me like. Giva da beefa. MOOO *action eating a burger*

    And I would get me some beef... Most likely raw with an uncooked egg on it...
