I think this fits better here, since this is an educational resource.

I just started to use Duolingo a couple of days ago. I'm using it to learn French and I use it on my phone. And yeah, sometimes the voice is a bit confusing, but that's to be expected with an online source.

I use it to learn French, and my dad uses it to learn Italian I think the voice is a bit weird at times when pronouncing œ or other letters/sounds that are odd, but meh. I have it on my phone n I don’t think I’ve ever had a very long streak before, though I do use it often

I haven't used it in ages, but I used it most in middle school. Our Spanish teacher had us get set up with accounts to help us further our learning outside of the classroom and regular homework assignments. I always used it on the computer and thought it was pretty fun, even if the voice was confusing sometimes. I was usually able to figure it out pretty quickly. Later on I did use it some while taking French in high school, although it wasn't required by the teacher. I've been thinking about getting back into it.

I think it is a good feature to keep you sharpened when out of class, especially good for unorganized people like me, but there is only a handful of things that can substitute a qualified teacher.

I've used it here and there on my phone and computer, but I don't have the time or discipline to keep up with it as I should/want to.

In school for our French classes we had Memrise and most of our homeworks and learning was based on Memrise even though I personally thought Duolingo was better for it and used it here and there to reinforce my learning. I've continued to use it now to learn some Italian when I have some free time.

I love duolingo (and their new app "Tinycards" which really helps with the learning). I think my absolute longest streak is 10 days. I'm learning French on my phone

I will cry for attention

I've used it for several languages. Thus I have small knowledge of several language rather than fluency in one. I'm currently learning Russian but I have commitment issues. I've found it to be surprisingly effective, as I've been able to have full fledged conversations in Russian, it's pretty cool.
