Any duolingo users?

I've gotten myself in pretty deep on duolingo. It seems to me the deeper you get, the more things don't make sense. I'm starting to wonder if it's legit. Anyone else feel the same?

Going to hit Rosseta more often. Duolingo was good for me at work. There is not a lot of speaking. You can just do it on your iphone.

I've used it a few times but not in depth. It seems pretty basic from what I've seen so far.

What doesn't make sense?

I went through the French one—I grew up speaking French—and there are perfectly valid translations, especially as you get more advanced, that aren't accepted by the system.

However, I've helped people through Rosetta and it does the same thing, so I would say use the free one until you can't stand it no mo.

Duolingo is pretty good for what it is. (free!)
