Duolingo is a widely-used and popular language-learning platform. It has a super interactive UI and leaderboards that propel you to learn. Their creative animations and characters make every lesson interesting and boost productivity.

Duolingo allows you to follow anyone you like and allow others to follow you. This is different from leaderboards which are more competitive in nature.

With new features, you can do friend quests together, motivate each other by sending XPs or congratulate each other on successfully completing milestones. On Duolingo, you cannot directly message any follower.

If you are new to Duolingo and are getting lonely in your language learning goals, you can always add new friends.
