Like its kinda fun and gratifying to fill the little goals it sets but i don't see how u could ever even learn to speak/listen to mandarin with it, let alone write the language.
It doesn't feel hard enough to actually be working lol

I learn Korean there and find duolingo isn't enough on its own. It's good for learning vocab and refreshing my memory so i do it often, but you'll need to practice speaking and detailed grammar elsewhere. I have 2-3 apps for Korean each have different methods but altogether i's a good challenge.

thanks that makes sense - do u use lingq? that seems like it might be good and has a heavy emphasis on listening/ immersion

Nope is that for Chinese? I use Memrise and watch a lot of TV series in the language I’m learning, it’s great practice

I do French and am toying with adding in another language. While it is a tool in its own right I found that I needed to supplement with extra lessons privately in order to get in speaking practice. Do use it but also find a tutor as well.

my friend seems to have become almost fluent in korean in the last few years largely through kpop lol. Or maybe that's just her inspiration - she also works in a korean restaurant, run korean club at skl and texts other kpop fans in korean lol
