    Mostly I love this app, but occasionally it tells me that I've gotten an answer wrong when I clearly haven't. They show me the correct answer and it is the EXACT same as the one I gave but no matter how many times I type it in it will continue to mark me wrong! It is infuriating because then I cannot move on in that level and I have to skip it. Fix this it is driving me mad! And one more thing... GET RID OF THE HEARTS!!!! They are an impediment to the learning process and extremely discouraging

    apk I am loving this app. Have started the French course yesterday and it's going great so far. However, one feature I've come here to suggest is to please add a reference or revision material of what is being taught in lessons. The TIPS in the beginning of lessons is very brief. It can't be relied for revision. And without a revision, I'm not sure I'll be able to store it all in. Please consider my suggestion, that'll help me a lot.

    download The app provides a basic language learning, both speaking and reading, which is especially important when you want to continue to a more professional level later on. Sometimes the speakers are not as clear as they should, which will result in losing a heart, but you can always add hearts by passing a test and watching an ad. Diligence will result in extra points, to buy extra hearts. The free level is really good. Some of the translation wouldn't be used by a native speaker, but close enough.

    download for pc Not only is the app free, but when you run out of hearts, you have a few options. You can pay gems, which you earn by completing in-app achievements. You can upgrade to premium ($12.99/mo, with discounts for purchasing 6 or 12 months in advance) You can practice. That's right... if you need more hearts to play, you can just go back to a previously completed lesson and strengthen your existing skills in order to start learning new ones! What an awesome option!!

    دانلود I have been using the app for about 2 weeks. I enjoy it and feel like I am learning. Using the "tips" page before you begin new areas is important. Give it a try! Update: at about a month, still enjoy the game, a nd have encouraged 2 friends to join. However, the practice for hearts has been erroring out for a week now, I considered paying because I like learning with the app but the price is to high for the subscription period for me. Friends and I are considering trying something else.

    duolingo - learn languages for free. ( android iphone ipad ) I am really enjoying this app so far. I'm only learning Latin at the moment and getting a kick out of moving up leagues. I would give 5 stars if not for this huge problem with one particular phrase I can't get past, even though I enter it correctly, each time the results say it's wrong and deduct a heart. I've lost 7 hearts now and I'm spewing! They're not quick to get. Please fix this so I can move on past this!! Otherwise I'm forever stuck in it.

    دانلود برنامه The app itself is wonderful. I feel like I'm learning. The push notifications can be Super Passive Aggressive, so if that's something that might affect you, just turn them off. Also, with the change from lingots (which, love the name) to gems, I have no idea what the conversion rate is? am I paying the same for my streak freezes? what's going on? there's been NO messaging on that and I hate hate it

    تنزيل Duolingo was one of my absolute favorite apps until the Heart feature was incorporated. If you make too many mistakes, and you don't have enough gems to re-up you must quit until you have enough hearts. In order to continue you must upgrade to Duolingo Plus; making it a cash grab. This is not a game. Learning a language is a life skill, and important. Very unfortunate. Five star app to a two star app.

    دانلود نرم افزار I'm surprised by how much I appreciate various aspects of this app! Yes, it's already awesome because it's a free language app, but it seems to work, the details are VERY GOOD, and the visual appeal is quite nice! Plus, I kind of hate that siren time suck that is Facebook, and while loading it asks you how much benefit you got from 15 minutes a day of social media time (as opposed to 15 minutes a day to actually be able to communicate with a HUMAN in some other country). I <3 YOU, DUOLINGO!

    The app makes it fun to come back and learn, and the positive reinforcement when you get something right (or the hints when you're wrong) make you feel like you're constantly making progress. I LOVE putting my skills to the test when listening to the stories. Two recommendations: 1) Stories without text, to purely test listening 2) Grammar lessons - especially verb conjugation! I've had to look these up elsewhere, which honestly is fine, but would be great to have in one place!

    I haven't been using this for too long, only one day but right now its very fun. You dont need to pay anything to learn it, it will only speed up the progress. As the biggest difference I've currently seen to having a membership is, that you can take a break when you want. Which makes sense they need to make money. So far ads haven't been intrusive and put in at good times. The one thing that I find wrong with it is that they should use pictures of things more often and not english

    The leaderboards became optional, which is great. I still have issues with privacy. I'm not sure the option to block unknown followers works. I blocked them, yet they still are listed as my followers. When I go totally private, I don't see strange followers, but I don't see friends either (ppl whom I follow and who follow me). Otherwise all seems to work great. I love the stories. They are witty & interesting, and the exercises & topics are diverse. I also appreciate the variety of languages.

    "Does it work?" Like anything else only if you put in the time. I've learned the building blocks for two new languages from Duo to basic proficiency that could be improved with immersion and live practice. Could be better at highlighting its lessons (tips) that prepare you to enter each level. Update 10/7: Most recent update limits you to 5 mistakes per day which is punitive and counterintuitive to education. Was trying to get some family members on it but this is a non starter.

    I like a lot about this app, I always find myself coming back to it to learn some more. The only thing I struggle with is speaking the language, I wish I could do more learnings on the pronunciation of words (maybe I haven't gotten far enough in any of my languages yet for that) but I feel confident with the reading and writting portion that I have learned from this app. Overall I highly recommend this app for getting into new languages.

    Very strange... It seems like the teaching method is worth it but based on the weird phrases I'm not sure I trust that I am learning anything valid. For example, when learning a new language you'd expect the basics like, "Hello, how are you?" not "I am a dove" or "Does dad love?" Quite an odd first impression, I must say.

    Recent update made it far harder to comprehend the voice prompts. Speaking too fast and not enunciating words clearly compared the previous voice prompts. Additionally there are times where the audio prompt simply will not play, and you will have to restart the lesson. Up until the update on the 6th I would have given the app 4-5 stars, but now I just don't even hardly have the motivation to use it other than to keep from getting bombarded with notifications.

    This app is great for beginners who are getting into a new language, and for those who wish to just refresh their language skills. Its great for casual learning, doing just 5 minutes of it gets me into a productive mood. Overall awesome for those who enjoy learning new languages on the side, and a good little tool for those who wanna take their language learning serious.

    This app is great in general but I'd like more repetition so I have time to absorb it. Also would be great to have some tables of grammar rules to refer to, like: I am, you are, we are, he is, she is, they are, etc. Italian seems like a complicated language and although I'm getting it right, I'm not sure if I understand it.

    This is a fantastic app but made almost unusable with the latest update after the introduction of the "hearts" feature, where after 5 errors, you can be locked out of learning new material for a period. I am not a paying subscriber but am happy to watch the in app ads. I would suggest giving users 20 rather than 5 hearts to encourage more new learning & pushing of boundaries, thereby not punatively punishing errors, which are essential for learning new languages.

    This app is great. It allows me to jump ahead on things I've already mastered, and provides encouragement on things I'm struggling with. Ive used other apps before and gotten stuck on a lesson with no way to move forward without spending money. THIS app let's me move on to another lesson once I've finished the first part of the previous lesson. It makes learning another language far easier and less stressful. Top marks!

    I started using this year's ago, then more recently probably due to the pandemic. I'm currently studying 3 languages. The lessons are easy to follow, and you get reminders for your daily sessions. You get the best out of it if you pay attention to the leaderboards, as this will provide additional motivation to get to the to of your current League. It has a few minor annoyances, and I wish I could switch off the sound in ads by default (has a mind of its own to be honest). Otherwise it's great!

There are lots of negative opinions on that feature, but I still want to be ableto access those features. Could be great if you add a word list to the lessons, especially now that Tinycards is deleted.

    I've stopped using duolingo. It's counterproductive to learning. The leaderboards and heart system is a cash grab and it's entirely too punative to be conducive to learning. Some of the sentences and structures are absurd. "My horse is a poet and not an architect" for instance. Duo has a system in place to report errors, but don't waste your time. nobody monitors. I was almost at a 200 day streak but it has become so frustrating that I actually hate it now. I'm out. Rosetta Stone is much better.

    I downloaded this app expecting it to be as amazing as it used to be a couple of years ago. I am shocked and appalled by a lack of ability to actually use this app. It continually freezes or will not access my lessons; it will never actually allow me to go to the shop; it often will freeze and restart and then bring me back to the beginning. I hope someone can fix this immediately otherwise I will be deleting it and getting my money back for the premium that I paid.

    Lots of languages on offer, good variety of learning (i.e. mixture of reading, speaking and writing) and overall easy to use. But (and this is a big BUT, hence only 3 stars): the recent introduction of hearts (and losing "lives" in case of mistakes) is counterproductive! It would be more motivational if gems could be used to unlock special skills/additional lessons or quizzes (rather than using them to dress Duo). Just an idea

    I love Duolingo as a supplementary language learning tool, but I will always write a less than happy review when they introduce the hearts system. I understand that the app is free, but we already see ads at the end of every lesson; the hearts system makes me nervous while I learn and impedes me from learning more if I make too many mistakes - - which is bizarre, because part of learning a new language is making mistakes! It actively turns away people who want to learn, so I hate having "hp".

    Excellent teaching methods. Keeps showing offline every so often when on stable Wifi. Have to quitte app and reopen. Pity about the hearts in the Android app. This prevents me from learning more in a day's session. In new subjects, 5 hearts hardly last one lesson. Previously I could spend an hour or more learning, with or without mistakes. Now I'm penalised. Yes, one can buy more, but this not conducive to learning. Downgraded from 5 to 3 stars.

    Good for supplementary language learning. However, the pronunciation, which is spoken by computer generated voices, is atrocious. Also, I'm not sure about other languages, but in Greek, there is no way to differentiate when one is expected to simply type the letter, or spell out the spelling of the letter. This makes the ABC section very confusing.

    Why is the iOS version different from Android? - On iOS I have the option to multiply the EXP, and get free gems by watching ads and here I don't. - Here I can practice old levels and get either 10 or 20 points, on iOS I do not have that option. - A bug on Android: if during a lesson, I go to the comments or put the app on the background, I cannot resume my lesson, the app remains in loading and never get out of there; I have to kill the app and start again (this doesn't happen on iOS)

    I used to really like this app. Now, not so much. Every time I get a question to tap the word pairs, the words won't show up. I've reported those questions every time for weeks now it won't work. Things like this have happened before and everytime it gets fixed, another problem shows up. It's a never ending cycle of bugs! Furthermore, the streak thing is rediculous. A better feature would be a counter of how many days you done Duolingo in total. Would NOT recommend!

    I loved duolingo until the changes that I found today. Getting booted from lessons for not having enough "hearts" then it's either subscribe for what was previously normal lesson attempts. Instead of duo plus being for benefits, it's now a subscription for what was the basic app. It makes me really consider just saving for and buying the languages I want to learn from other sources like rosetta stone. I don't have the time to waste doing extra "practicing" to earn a single heart back, etc...

    Learn a freaking language for free AND its 90% accurate?? Hell yes. This is one of the best put together apps out there. Im learning Arabic and Spanish. Yes it has ads... but seriously a commercial break between lessons is no big deal. Free idea here... make your ads interactive in the language that the user is trying to learn. Might get more business that way. As long as it improves the learning on this app im good with it. Seriously awesome.

    This is a very good app to compliment language learning. It could be better if it has the option to have it explain why an answer is wrong so you could learn the rules of the language better. That being said it is very good for when you only have a spare 5 minutes and want some practice. Plus it is free which is always a plus.

    I'm sick of leagues! I've won all leagues and now, I want out. I want a button that allows me to exit from leagues, at my own discretion. It needs to be optional. There's no point in participating if I've already won, and should allow other users to participate and win. Other users will agree with this when I say some of us don't need the pressure of staying in the Diamond League when we can actually learn at our own paces. All I'm doing now is repeating lessons, instead of leaning new stuff.

    This is a great app and you don't need the pay version to access many of the things available. I especially enjoy the mixed types of questions....translate this, match these, repeat this, etc. It is a very effective way of learning. Spanish is what I am using it for at this point and is all I have tried but I assume the format and teaching styles are the same for any language and look forward to learning more!

    Most recent update completely ruined the experience. I have been an avid user for a full year now, and in one update, one fell swoop, they went from a free, unlimited learning model to a pay-to-play service. Not to mention the sharp, complete devaluation of my hard-earned in game currency. You can take back your dark mode, give us the old model back.

    They expect us to know the answer before teaching, so we lose hearts. We have to watch ads to get hearts back. I only use this version for the app-only lessons. I wished it was words, not sentences. If I wanted sentences, I'd get a phrasebook. In the colour section, I have only learnt blue, black, red and yellow. This makes me want to do my OWN language learning website.

Have fun learning!

    Extremely helpful and intuitive learning the language I chose. You can learn as many languages as you want and it's very easy to use and they treat it like playing a game so it's fun, not difficult and frustrating. The ads are not intrusive and only play after the lesson you've finished. The pop-ups for getting premium are a bit more intrusive, but not annoying. I would recommend this to literally anyone.

    This app has been hugely beneficial as a learner with a previous traumatic brain injury. The style of repetition and intermittent introduction of new subjects has truly helped me to retain information. I began using this app consistently a bit over a year ago. I began a formal class for the language I'm learning about 3 months ago and the entire semester was basically stuff I already knew from duolingo, aside from some vocab. Only thing it's lacking is voice recognition pronunciation practice.

    Learning French - there seems to be no way to report issues with tips, only with checked answers. The sound that comes from the 'o' in Tips for the Basics 1 lesson, is nothing like the sound in the example words. This is repeated in Travel Level 2, Lesson 1 - the sound exercise for 'ho' (oo like in boo) sounds nothing like the word 'hotel' (o like in oh)

    The app is fantastic! But I'm someone who needs to write things down, so my lessons go really slowly as I try to take tons of notes. Also, it would be nice if if didn't go straight into reading AND speaking Japanese. It's a little overwhelming. That said, this is probably the most effective app I've come across for teaching language!

    thought I'd reinstall and try to learn a language I started a long time ago but I'm so overwhelmed and annoyed by all the junk on the app now that I'll be trying out other apps. There is a notification on the thumbnail and I have searched and searched and searched ... can't find it - guess it's as unimportant as all the "extras". Was considering purchasing, but I've reconsidered. The "badges, leagues and rewards" are unnecessary and the opposite of motivating for me.🤦✌️

    I'm incredibly upset over the fact that they would introduce this Heart system to Duolingo. I'm absolutely heartbroken that they would do this because I have been a longtime user of the app and desktop version and I intend on introducing it to many other people but now I'm hesitant because of the blatant of cash grab that's frankly damaging to the app.

    The Korean course is sub-par. They use a mix of Revised Romanization spellings and phonetic romanizations, and this makes it a chore to guess which options to pick to match Korean writing to English sounds. I already know the Korean alphabet and the sounds the consonants and vowels make. I don't want to learn bad habits just to proceed to the more relevant lessons, but I can't skip them, and I couldn't test out of them because the placement quiz uses nonsense sentences and niche vocabulary.

    I love this app. I'll take the ads in between each lesson because I'm actually learning. But with the newest update of adding hearts, I'm annoyed. If one lesson is harder, suddenly I can't reach my daily goal due to making mistakes. Learning a language isn't some game like Candy Crush; it's an actual skill that I was utilizing in my life. Now I can't learn a full lesson because it's getting more difficult. I'd bump my rating up if that "feature" was removed.

    A fantastic app. The choice of languages to learn is very good, if a little Euro-centric. Some African languages, like Swahili or Igbo would be great. Having said that though, the lessons are fun and easy to get into a routine doing them. The app is good at motivating you and you do learn a lot; however, if you are serious about learning languages then I suggest buying a grammar book or two to use in conjunction with the Duolingo course. It's a great way to learn and practice languages.

    I've had this app for over a year! Love it! I started back on app recently. You can learn many languages as you want! Remember to start off slow learning at your own pace. You don't want to be overwelmed. You can start from as low as 15 minutes a day! Love the stories sometimes corny but still exciting and fun! They always offer questions, answers, tips and its constant education. I took two course decided to stick with one but will definitely take up more in future. I'm also a writer.

    Prior to imposing the hearts system on everyone, I would have given this app a 5-star rating. No, the language methodology isn't always great, but it's a free app and I appreciated it for what it was (and didn't mind supporting it with ad watching in the least). Now, the experience is stressful and unpleasant, and I feel actively discouraged from using it. While it's a useful tool, the teaching quality is not valuable enough for me to pay for it (particularly in my COVID economic situation).

    I've used Duolingo for languages I've studied to solidify what I know and grow from there. And I've started from nothing. I've found it more effective than my US public school classrooms in grinding things in until they're natural, and allowing you to go at your own pace. 4 stars, bc I do wish they would expand their languages on mobile. I can learn Klingon or Valerian, but only one US indigenous language. Latin, but no other "extinct" and equally useful languages, like Sumerian or Sanskrit.

    Good for what it is. Not really my learning style but even then it's helpful. I docked a star because some of the ads can't be closed and I have to restart the app and because some languages have limited features, like mandarin not having any challenges where it listens to you speak (though I haven't seen it in spanish in awhile either. Maybe they got rid of that). All in all, useful and relatively easy to navigate.

    You may think that you need the paid version but no you've got everything you need with the normal version and I got through the whole thing without paying and not many ads but my favourite thing was that you didn't need to pay for hearts there is an option for practise for a heart you just need to get most of them right and it's fine if you get a few wrong. Another good thing is if you aren't able to listen to the sound there is an option to not have the listening activities for a hour! Wow

    Recent updates are kinda ugly. It introduced a new bug where whenever I resize the app into half (sometimes I do this because I like to multitask like chatting etc.) and the lesson I'm currently doing suddenly begin loading again and as if it's loading forever. It also happens when I minimize Duolingo and return to the app afterwards where it begins to load again. This bug introduced into the app after adding the "Dark Mode" feature (which I don't ever use anyway). Please fix this please.

    This is a great way to practice your language skills. However, the app starts working slowly after a while, and becomes unresponsive at times. There is no way to fix it other than uninstalling the app entirely, and the reinstalling it. This ia very disappointing, and I am surprised they still haven't fixed it. (After all, the same problem has existed with this app for years.) If it weren't for this very annoying and frustrating problem, I would give this a five star review.

    Update- ok so... the latest update is not great. For some reason, everything is more expensive now- the drop rates of the ingame currency are way lower and everything costs way more. It's so imbalanced now. As a tool to refresh a language you sort-of learned in high school, Duolingo is excellent. As a tool to learn a new language, it is... ok. I would love for all Android users to be able to practice speaking as well as writing and hearing the language.

Also if you're learning French, Spanish or German (there's another language I forgot about), it allows you to read stories on checkpoint 1! ♥ And I love Duo as my teacher!

    The app is good in terms of interesting, and fun language learning. I came across an issue with the app accessing two different internal keyboards, one in which the language can't be changed to another language other than English. I can't proceed in the lesson without typing Russian (what I'm learning) on this alt-keyboard. Which isn't possible. I have sent a message to Duolingo service support, and they've recieved my message. Though, after several days, they have yet to suggest a solution.

    Used to be 5 stars and would recommend it to everyone. It was a great learning tool, the streak system kept your motivation high and the ads weren't intrusive at all and it really seemed like they cared about their audience. Then all of a sudden the heart system is introduced, punishing you for your mistakes and prohibiting your progression in a sly attempt to get you frustrated enough to buy pro. I expected this from other apps but was naive enough to believe Duolingo was better than them.

    Prior to this week, I would have given this app five stars. However, the recent update is one of the most shameless attempts at money grabbing I have ever seen. You are now essentially limited to 5 mistakes per day unless you subscribe, which makes learning anything new incredibly difficult. To top this off, all the lingots I had earned were deleted as part of the update.

    Good app for REMEDIAL learning. Not good for a beginners course because this app is disorganized. It has problems introducing new words into the required answers which were not introduced previously, and it does not correlate words with real images. The app also does not teach plurals, possession, or explain other needed knowledge in the proper order required for the proper introduction content before it is required in an answer. As this course required a lot of previous knowledge of the language for me to satisfy the apps testing phases, a beginner would not have a good time trying to start from nothing. The content needs to be better organized, and thought out carefully, so as to appear only after the words have been introduced. It's an "almost" app. I spent $50 bucks to learn this. Unfortunately this leaves Rosetta Stone as a better content provider for the purpose of training new learners, but at a cost that is not reasonable. However this app does have an otherwise easy to use interface, an nice fun feel, and a do it at your own pace style with mild competition with others.

    It's alright for drilling. I don't at all expect to be able to learn the language I'm focused on through Duolingo. I find some of their UI changes bothersome, esp the tiles that are now too small to read. Mostly, I can't stand the bell sound. It's like nails on a chalkboard. I try to move as quickly as possible through each one, and it's nothing but DING DING, DING DING. Something less harsh would be very appreciated.

Lingots were fine, the prices were reasonable, but then you made gems, Everything became super expensive, and you made hearts a thing.

    This is a fun app with a nice interface, a lovable owl, many languages, and has added a story-reading section since its start that is the highlight of my practice. Its downside, as with almost any app, is that it's structured on noun vocab acquisition, and little on verb conjugation patterns. Fluency ends at small talk. Also, it's built so you "lose" when you don't practice, making it dumb down when you return from an absence (like playing Level 1 of a game you beat in the past) for weeks.

The teaching methods and content is all good but there's some technical glitches. Sometimes it freezes and I can't watch other people's profiles, it keeps loading but doesn't show anything. I would definitely give it 5 stars if the technical problems are solved. Also you should add the removing and resetting a language feature in android application.

    I've been thoroughly enjoying Duolingo for years now. I've dabbled in several languages - have gotten pretty good at two of them. I've been quite happy with the app, & told many people about it. However, recently they've re-introduced the 💙 system. You can make only five mistakes, then must purchase more 💙 or you have to wait until the next day to try again. This impedes learning but worse, is a sneaky way of Duolingo to make money off of its users. (Isn't that what ads are for?) Awful.

    I've been really enjoying using duo to learn French. The lessons are easy to follow. It reminds you on a daily basis (if you want) to do your lesson and rewards you for completing them consistently. Ads in the free version aren't intrusive at all. There is the occasional (maybe one question in 10 lessons) mistake in wording/grammar but they are usually pointed out in the comments. My only gripe is I wish there was more explanation of using masc/fem, plural, and i/you/we.

My other issue is that sometimes I just want to watch a lecture and be told how sentences work.

    This app desperately needs a flashcard mode. Also, it doesn't offer much to check and calibrate for vocal fluency or knowledge retention. The app will often not tell you WHY your choice was wrong and which was right. This can be a huge time waste, having to dig further to find the actual reasoning. That being said, this app is extremely accessible and can teach you some fundamentals quite quickly. I just wish they added those features to help people who wish to use it in a real world setting.

    Good app for learning, but with drawbacks. My main issues have been: the mobile app has no access to the informational material about the lessons, so everything is trial and error. This clashes into the new "hearts" system that they've implemented, which cancels your lesson if you make too many mistakes. For an app that doesn't allow you to read up, and then proceeds to stop you for making mistakes...it isn't fun or encouraging, or sensible. It's just irritating.

    If you install this and find that you have resources called "hearts" and "gems", and do not have "lingots", you've been automatically entered into a beta that you are going to wish you hadn't been. There is no way to leave the beta, but I hear that remaking your account is a workaround. It's too late for me, but maybe you still have a chance. It still looks nice, I just wish it didn't violate everything I know about language pedagogy.

    I absolutely love this app. With in just a few days I'm able to form a whole sentence in Spanish. I have two issues that are a big problem for me. First is the white background. I use the app through out the day but mostly at night. So a dark mode or way to change the background color would be awesome. Another problem is the competition. At first I loved it but now I find myself flying through courses just to be top 3 and I'm not learning anything new by that. I'd like to be able to turn it off

    I am frustrated with this app. It doesn't pronounce the word on the flashcards, during the multiple choice on the translation, when you "write" the translated English bubble. Bieng a visual and sound learner, it's hard for me to actually pronounce and retain a word or phrase if I'm left guessing. I find it especially frustrating during the Vietnamese course as it has different intonations. It doesnt teach you noun classifiers.This problem with Duolingo is also consistent with the other courses.

    I've been using this app for about a year and now the hearts is killing this app. It feels like a pure money grab to force you into premium. I have to watch all those ads at the end is that not enough? If you can't even get all your hearts refilled in 24hrs. Amazing how whoever is new running this company is going purely into profit away from education. You should not be punished for mistakes it makes you learn better when you have to figure out the translation. I'll be trying to find anotherAPP

    I've been using this app for a while so I like the interface and all. To make it better, I'd like a setting where I could turn off the images so I can focus more on the words. I think this works better for Japanese where you need to know the kanji itself. Also, I'd like a way for me to type the answers directly instead of tapping from the options, thanks.

I won't pay the monthly fee. I've used duolingo since 2015. I would give the app 5 stars prior to this update. I'm looking elsewhere for my languages teacher. I was doing well learning 5 languages. So, just don't get involved with this app. I'm on the hunt, wish me luck 😟😥😰

    Having access to a free language learning app is fantastic. However I think there should be a greater focus on teaching verb conjugation and other grammatical rules, rather than leaving it up to the learner to work it out for themselves based on reading sentences. Also I would like more of the questions on the mobile app to require a typed answer rather than selecting words from boxes.

    I'm learning really quickly with this app, and I'm satisfied with the teaching methods. The only slight issue I have is that it's technically teaching me to translate it more than speak it... But really I could learn to speak it if I put in the effort to say aloud the things I'm translating.

    The lessons are nicely progressive. But the format is too gamey! I don't care about hearts and rewards and competition. Just now I "ran out of hearts" and the only option it gives is to sign up for "plus" whatever that is. I lost all progress in the lesson. RUBBISH!. ......Now that I have used the app for several months, I like it more and more. I did sign up for Plus (the paid version of the app) and am studying French and reviewing Spanish. It is very conversational.

    Great app to start a language. Just keep practicing and you can see the results. Edit: If you connect some bluetooth device in the middle of a lesson (or the device reconnects for some reason), it reloads the app and the screen keeps loading forever. This also happens when you change your focus to other app for a while and returns.

    Love it, but... Things like always showing the correct translations doesn't always occur. I wish it was on more screens. I also wish you could click more words and get the sound with the translation after you fail. Like, I get not showing it while you're trying to write it, but after its marked wrong, let us click on the words. Having the ability to click on the correct translation and hear the words would be awesome. I would like the option to do speech only lessons too.

    EDIT: The heart system is cash grab to try and force you to pay for the subscription. I'm not sure I would recommend Duolingo without paying for the subscription now. Overall, it's a good app for introducing you to a new language; however, with Duolingo alone you're likely never going to become fluent. Very good for introducing you to new vocabulary and just dipping your toe into something new

    First of all, it is free! None "after ten days", "one month later" warnings, ads for premium may disturb you. Premium version is always an option, if you want more, but it is not obligatory. Steps are putted thoughtfully to achieve and maintain what you learned. You can take tests, if you're not beginner level, and start from your side. I haven't tried yet but there is particular testing systems for vocabulary and grammar.

    The app is free and thats why its amazing. But this app should never be how you actually learn. It doesn't "teach" you how to structure your words or how to actually speak it. It's simply a matching game. Use this along side other programs that properly teach a language. I will continue to use the app, however i would never recommend it be how you learn the language, but maybe how you stay refreshed on the language if a pinpal is not an option.

    I loved this app before but now the messed it up by adding gems and hearts. It makes me feel like I'm striving to get it right the first time rather to learn how to speak a new language. Key word, learn. You shouldn't feel pressured while learning a new thing. The only way to get more hearts is to pay a ridiculous amount of gems or go prinum wich is honestly trash. I do like the dark mode now but because of the whole heart system the app became bad

    I used to like Duolingo a lot and I've been using it for almost 5 years now. But the changes from gems to heart is a bit difficult for me to enjoy the language learning process. Only 5 hearts too. We learn by out mistakes but if you only allow us to make 5 mistakes. How is that going to help us learn? We could cheat by using Google and typing the answer but we wouldn't learn, would we? It's a bit disheartening to see such changes. I don't get to learn as much as I do previously. Too bad.

    Learning German. I've used Duo for a year with some success, but lately the ad load on the free version has become absurd; a commercial after each lesson, typically 5-10 minutes. Used to be banner ads. Not a problem with a subscription, but frankly there are better paid apps out there. If you do use Duo for German, get a grammar book right away or spend time on YouTube early on to get a sense of how grammar works. Duo is very weak there.

I'm not paying 12.99 a month or 87.00 a year just to have my unlimited practices back. I can make 5 mistakes and then I'm shut out of learning. This basically ruined the app for me, and it looks like it did for a lot of other people, too.

    The introduction of "hearts" has turned my absolute favorite app into a frustrating experience. Making mistakes should not be punished - it is essential for language learning. I would go premium if I could afford it, especially if I could pay once for using the app on an unlimited basis. I see that most users are doing much fewer lessons now, too, so advertisers will not be happy either. Please return to your former educational and fun version!!! Everyone would rejoice!

The app just shows a loading screen. As well, I have been focused on Vietnamese and the nature of the lessons are not as helpful as other languages. Specifically, with French for example words are spoken as you tap them. Not so with the Vietnamese lessons. I'm a paying subscriber.

    Every time that I practice and pass the lessons of each topic, there are some certain and repetitive new words, not ALL the new words of that topic which have been covered. So I can see and memorize a few of the covered new words not all of them!! For example,the words "belt,gift,purse,..." that were presented in the first lesson, couldn't be seen in next practice lessons as many as other words! I just forgot them! . I wish there was a WORD LIST...

    The new features of being unable to continue if you make 5 mistakes unless you pay for premium will probably lead to my using the app less. So much for their mission statement, which includes the word "free." So instead of seeing all the ads I used to see (and there was one after every section) I'll probably see fewer of them. Even less money for Duo.

It is good that even though the sections are changing, the level of difficulty also, the most important frases are repeated constantly, which helps you remember them really fast. The TIP section is awesome - the words, the grammar and the structure of the sentence are explained and translated in English, which makes it really easy to learn!!! Great app 👏👏👏

    Really simple and fun Paying seems absolutely optional, you can regain hearts (your limited daily attempts if you are not premium) simply by doing practice sessions of words you struggled with. I have been using it for about two weeks now and I already feel like I have made a lot of progress(I am a free user) . Ads can be annoying... But with how great the app is and how customer friendly the monetization, I can easily overlook this and give 5 stars.

    Duolingo has both written and verbal translations, and uses an effective levelling system to gradually ease you into a new language. It also encourages you to learn at your own pace, while rewarding you for consistency. Naturally it has ads, but these are no more intrusive than many other apps, and you can choose to pay for an upgrade to go ad-free. The heart feature is generous for regular learning and practising; and with a wide variety of languages, I can see myself using this app often.

I have a FREE language-learning app. I prefer learning by myself, not in groups, and am not by nature a competitive learner, unless you count my personal streaks.

    Really disappointed in the new update. Obviously they are struggling to monetize, so have turned this into candy crush where you have to wait or buy to practice. That's fine I guess, but in doing so, they also removed lingots in lieu of gems. If you're going to change your fake currency, at least have a decent exchange rate.

    I loved this app once. Now you need to pay through the nose (14.99) just so that it can be usable. The ridiculous amount of ads (after every lesson) by themselves would have been ok. The annoying heart system that limits you to 5 mistakes a day by itself, again, would have been okay. But having them both makes learning a language a frustrating experience. I recommend finding a different language app if you can't afford to pay for this one.

    Duolingo is good in concept, except that not every translation seems to be literal, which could cause some confusion to people new to a language. In addition, it seems that they've unfortunately decided to make political statements through their lessons instead of remaining a nonpartisan app for simply learning a language like they should have been.

    I use the free version and don't think the ads are too much. They have to pay for it somehow. I'm taking both Irish and Spanish. The Spanish is much more developed than the Irish, which makes sense considering it's more widely used and has been around longer. I would bump to 5 stars when the Irish has all the same features in the app as Spanish, namely more audio and some easy books. Overall, really great app, very helpful for the casual learner. The different leagues keep me motivated, the daily streak encourages me to log on every day. The way it goes back to previous lessons to "repair" the learning achieved ensures you don't forget earlier material. If I could give 4.7 stars I probably would.

    This is one of the best language learning apps out there. Everything is understandable, UI is very accessbile and the challenge for each lesson gradually and naturally grows. Although it does become repetitive every now and then, it is part of the learning process when it comes to learning languages. The ads do not get in the way mid-lesson and show once the lesson is finished. The heart system is ok since practicing does bring it back. Time on heart recovery is a bit too much.

    I like the app, it is helpful, but I would like improvements. •Make the ability to remove languages from the ones you are working on, possibly by long- pressing a language then giving the option to delete, still saving the progress if you choose to come back. •Put what is most important to learn first. Writing system/alphabet, pronunciation, etc. Then move on to things you would need to know if you went there, like how to ask where a restaurant is, ask for food, where the bathroom is, etc.

Definitely, it is better than just playing a game or doing some brain exercises that allegedly make you smarter (probably they do, but in ways that will never be useful in everyday life). I think the criticism of the heart system is unfair. You can keep playing without subscription by doing extra practice. Thanks Duo.

    The app is great for learning a new language. I have a minor suggestion that would be extremely beneficial to the users. It would be tremendously helpful if there was a section within the app/website that contained a list of all the words/phrases that have been covered until a given lesson. It could also have English translations against those words/phrases. This would enable us, users, to keep a real-time track of all the words/phrases that the app has taught us so far. It would also help us revise, and in turn, improve faster.

    This app is amazing and i have been using it to learn japanese. The only thing that really irritates me about the mobile version is that sometimes with the "what sound does this make?" questions, the "check answer" button is over top of the right answer and i cant scroll down or anything, giving me no choice but to either keep clicking the wrong answer (because the order of answers doesnt change when you get to that question again) or just give up on the lesson.

    I love everything about this app. It is so interactive and fun that it makes you want to come back and learn more everyday! My favorite part is the stories, because it helps you to listen and understand converations that would happen in real life. Whoever created this app did an awesome job! Recommending to all my friends 😊👏

    Doesn't fit to my screen. I can be halfway through a lesson and I'm presented with a screen that only shows the tops of the letters of words. Next I'm presented with a screen that is asking for a translation with 3 possible answers but the actual sentence I'm meant to translate is hidden and I can't move it around to see the question. Next I'm asked to input the correct French word but I can't type in the answer because no keyboard pops up. These bugs are really frustrating. Please fix.

    Was great, but recently they've started penalizing you for making simple mistakes, and ad frequency has doubled. You can make max 5 mistakes a day before you either have to pay to continue, or you can't learn anything new that day. This is completely antithetical to their goal of bringing language learning to all, and it counters educational science (that penalizing simple mistakes can severely disincentivize interest in learning). I used to recommend this app; I no-longer can. Please fix this!

    Progress is slow as I'm tackling 日本語, though it would be going faster if previous courses didn't "break" over time. It bothers me more than I care to admit every time I see a course "broken" so I've wasted a lot of time taking previously completed courses instead of actually progressing. It'd be nice if new kanji were given more of an explanation before being introduced, too. Also, can we opt out of the leaderboards? I'm not a competitive person and constant reminders about my rank are annoying.
