Just because we are learning a new language, like English in this case, people didn't suddenly leave their brains at the door, and need childish treatment of the language at a low IQ level, a common failing of many language websites. Keep it interesting, entertaining, pull no punches, soften no landings, more spunky. Offer in-depth treatment of each subject, and allow beginner, intermediate and advanced learners different pathways.
Look at our subject breakdown from content folders, subjects from CollegeInspector, Wikipedia in general, human edited internet DMOZ, subjects from Coursera, Khan Academy, ie, in my long list already.
Further, get the right level of specificity for each subject, and include how-it-works diagrams, educational animations, and since all is free, try to get 'permission' to use a popular figure from comics or games or?, and offer them 'relentless and sophisticated, linked promotion' on our site.
Integrate skritter-like interactivity/exercises, and better flow and tests than duolingo, better charts for progress via Khan Academy, better drilling like quizlet, integrate videos and audio, hosted on YouTube where possible.
