    Seems good enough for learning but the app has always refused to do anything involving my mic. Now since the last time I was using it they have hearts. So the app won't use the mic right, and then docks me hearts for it. Smooth guys, real smooth. Other than being ultra annoying with regards to the mic, seems like it would be useful. At least there is a setting to turn the mic off entirely in the options. I just feel like I'm missing out on part of this.

  2. SikoSoft-avatar



    apk Great interface & graphics. Starts off well. Japanese course quickly becomes unmanageable. Suddenly, you are bombarded with kanji. They don't say it's kanji. They don't tell you what kanji is. They don't have an area to learn kanji. It's just blasted with no context. Other main lessons are easily solvable by logical guesses as random word choices are often terrible and only one as arrangement of words could ever make sense. Good potential, but some major lapses in execution.

    app download I REALLY enjoy this app. I can learn a new language at my own pace. There is SO many languages to choose from. And it's Actually fun to do. It doesn't feel like learning. Or school work. It's almost like playing a game. I have no doubt it a couple years I'll be multilingual. Not just bilingual. Thank you So Much for developing this app!!!!

  4. Chad Lepak-avatar

    Chad Lepak


    download for pc It's not perfect but pretty darn good. I like that the lessons are short if you only have a small block of time. Or you can go long. I like the competitiveness added by points, levels, streak days, and limited number of hearts (mistakes). Increases focus. I recommend they expand what you can do with your gems (fake money), keep added different voices for accents. I'm getting addicted to the app. Makes language learning free, fun and on your time schedule. Best language app I have found yet.

  5. Haven Shoemaker-avatar

    Haven Shoemaker


    apk download I love how it's in "game" form; keeps it from being too monotonous and teaches you how to ask and speak the same thing but in different ways. With that being said though, the practices introduce limited amounts of vocab sometimes asking the same question literally twice in a row. And then when you get to test, they use vocabulary that has yet to be introduced. Maybe add some games just to learn verbs, crossword or wordsearch form. Regardless, it's still a fun and informative language app

    دانلود Duo used to be enjoyable but they changed the program and it's no longer fun. You can have a sentence that you wrote and one tiny error will cost you a star. If you lose your five stars in a lesson of 20 questions, you have to earn them back by doing extra lessons, watching ads, or using gems to buy stars. The program has become more punative and ad heavy.

  7. Rachel F-avatar

    uptodown I love this app. It's been great to help me brush up on my spanish. However, it is not people with disabilities friendly. I am learning disabled and I am trying to learn hebrew since my fiance's family speaks it. Looking at full sentences as the symbols without seeing the pronunciations under it really makes it difficult. My fiance has been helping me since my brain has trouble processing it

  8. Pedro Amado-avatar

    duolingo learn language free I used to love this app but the latest update has made it almost impossible to use without paying. Yes, I agree that software developers need to be paid for their work, but with the amount of advertising we're bombarded with between lessons and 100M+ installs I don't believe any payment is warranted. I use the app to study 11 languages, ranging in level from absolute beginner to almost expert, but my frustration since the last update has me on the verge of uninstalling it. Please remove the idiotic "innovation" of only allowing 5 mistakes per day (for someone who only has time to use the app in the evening the fact that the hearts slowly build up again over a period of hours is useless) and give your enormous user base reason to continue using this app Update April 2021: Not only do they continue to use the stupid points system, but the software is now full of bugs. I got a perfect score on the final checkpoint for the French course, only to see the points I gained disappear, even though the system says I finished the checkpoint. Most days I have to cut my studying short because I run out hearts - it's no use trying to push myself, as the extra effort is penalised instead of rewarded. Message to the geniuses responsible for this idiocy if you were minimally intelligent you would understand that by getting people to complete more lessons they would also be watching more adverts. I guess some concepts are too hard for you to grasp...

    duolingo - learn languages for free. ( android iphone ipad ) Really enjoying this app. The only things that are a bit of a let down are: It taught me 1-4 in one lesson and it wasn't until a couple of lessons later that I learnt up to 10. Think it would just make more sense to learn 1-10 in one go otherwise it's disjointed. Also you can't revisit certain bits if you want to go over something in particular, you just have to do the whole lesson again which is frustrating. Babbel do a review section so you can go over vocabulary already learnt.

  10. Miztickow-avatar



    دانلود برنامه The app is amazing and I'm hearing more faster with it than I ever did in school, but the ads are annoying in several ways. Sometimes they freeze and make you restart the app. They aren't in the language I'm learning so they constantly take me out of the correct mindset. They keep switching the close and download buttons.

  11. Onionknees-avatar



    Hi, please fix your app. Things I have noticed that there are bugs and mistranslations all around. Not even little mistranslations; I mean where the English translations when you type in the Spanish sentence correctly AREN'T EVEN THE SAME SENTENCE OR SUBJECT!!! That is just plain laziness. I've also noticed that when you go to the stories and click on one, the whole app just freezes. I have to restart the app just to do a story. That is horrendous. Please fix your app and playtest for bugs....

    Started using this for German a few years ago (3+) recently tried coming back to it a few times but I'm going to give it up, the hearts system is a such a pain, it destroys your learning rhythm and you're penalised for the slightest mistakes even though they have the exact same meaning and the adverts and constant push to sign up for the paid service is just intolerable, if anything they've put me off from subscribing and now put me off this app. Shame that they've ruined a perfectly good app.

  13. GoldenBoyJK-avatar



    I just want to suggest something, I think it will be a good idea if there will be a section where you can view all the new words you have learned and each time you learn a new one it will appear there. It will be a lot easier to look for them without taking the test all over again just to look for that word. None the less, this app is so helpful because in just 3 days I already learned a lot, hopefully you guys can make something out of my recomendation.

    There is constantly changes that never stay, they pop up for a couple weeks and then get taken away again. Like the last round of a level being double XP, practicing previous mistakes or double XP rounds. My boyfriend has duolingo on his iPhone and that version has a lot more features that make you want to keep going. Why??? Pretty unfair...

  15. Harris-avatar



    App inconsistent across platforms. On my android I have gems but on the computer, I have lingots & don't like the hearts on Android. If I lose all hearts (5), end of lesson. Missing features I once had. In the learning portion, the button to jump down to the next lesson, skipping over all completed is gone. And can't see my progress of each check point in a snapshot where it listed level progress anymore. The lessons are useful. App is just inconsistent, hearts suck and that hurts overall.

    Amazing app and 100% FREE! I'm learning a conlang (Esperanto) that sadly isn't more well-known, but perhaps that will inform you as to the breadth of what this app can offer. My best friends are learning German, Polish, and French here also. Each exercise has its own discussion thread where you can delve deeper into the semantics at play or get specific answers to clear up any confusion you might presently have. One can always upgrade their experience, but there's zero freemium roadblocks here!

    In the past, the app was helpful for learning Japanese (particularly useful sentences and new vocab for beginners). I really miss the old version before they updated it with the heart system, despite the new elements to the Japanese course such as stroke order for hiragana/katakana. I agree that the heart system takes away from duolingos message of free learning and that mistakes are ok. I EXTREMELY also miss the old free strength tests, it's hard to remember info without them.

    Great app; you do learn. Lots of stories and lessons for Spanish now. I wish there was for Latin. The amount of lessons and stories for learning varies by language. There's Latin now, but only very introductory. Not thrilled with the "heart" system they've forced on us. Lots and lots of Spanish lessons now, which is good. A great way to sneak in learning when you have a few minutes. Some of the stories get a bit pushy with some worldviews.

  19. Sergiy Polischuk-avatar

    App good and effective, but it is created and edited by feminists. All texts use the feminine gender fanatically. In addition, by default, the black theme is immediately turned on and pictures of colored races have been added. Passed the whole course in the old version. I wanted to repeat, but I could not- so much feminism and diversity.

  20. Benjamin Mitterlehner-avatar

    Benjamin Mitterlehner


    Sometimes I accidentally click on "can't listen right now" so a way to undo that (without quitting the lesson) would be awesome. But the reason for 3 stars is because I despise the heart thing. I know what it's for but everyone learns differently and it definitely impairs my learning. I also know that it's supposed to make more users buy plus which imo is pretty shameless for a reputable app like duolingo.

  21. David Angell-avatar

    I have been learning intermittently on duo and I am surprised at how well I understand common phrases. Never did I think that learning about tortugas would help me understand Spanish. I think their approach is to use phrasing that mimics what children learn and build on a solid foundation. I recommend this learning platform.

  22. Robert-avatar



    I have been waiting for FIVE YEARS for duo lingo to support stories for Russian and Ukrainian languages. The work for this has already been done; I've been in contact with developers I will not name and have PROOF that there are MULTIPLE languages that are 100% ready for Duolingo stories and they are just sitting there on a hard drive. All duolingo has to do is flip a switch and they would be available. Is duolingo Exerting soft power in favor of a group of languages? I'm getting angry!

    If I had not known about Duolingo I would have never speak English. I love this app. This app gives me more whatsapp, telegram and YouTube put together. I have been learning English 5 years. I have been learning Turkish 1 year. But I stopped using Duolingo learning English because of I grew up Duo's level. Duo's one disadvantage is there are no levels after intermediate.

  25. Gwerk Lancaster-avatar

    This is probably the best polyglot app you can get and it's free! Some of the pronunciations could use an update. And they need to add a new lesson plan specific to pronunciation and any tips for mastering it. Regional accents and tips to cultivating them woulf make this an amazing app! Even if it was part of Premium. The in game currency also needs a big content update. You can buy scant few situational items and just 3 costumes. That stuff helps motivate us, keeps us interested in Duo

  26. Maura S-avatar

    Maura S


    I love how Duo says "It's about progress, not perfection", then operates on a heart system, where you can't make any progress if you aren't perfect 5 times. I also love how it takes FOUR WHOLE HOURS to get ONE SINGLE heart back. Horrible app. Oh, and another thing. The report button is broken. It obviously doesn't work, because nothing ever changes.

    I love this app. I have recently taken on the task of learning japanease however when doing the lessons there is a bit were I type the translated term however sometimes it wants what it is and sometimes it wants the English spelling of it. for example it gives me the word ocha but I dont know if they want me to type Green tea or ocha when it says translate. otherwise great app but please fix that.

    I have been using Duolingo for more than a year. Every day! Great app to learn any language. Fun and interesting. You can do 1 lesson in 5 minutes. Or some days I complete many lessons and listen to short stories in another language and answer questions. Give it a try!

  29. Liam Thompson-avatar

    I've used Duo for a few years now to get a rudimentary grasp of Polish and Russian. It's a very good tool to learn the basics and to practice alone. I'm a non subscriber, mainly because I feel it's overpriced, ad's can be annoying at times, but I'd rather sit through them than pay £12 a month/£72 a year. The only *real* issue I have is the English used throughout is not British English, although it has got better at accepting BE spellings in answers.

  30. Alex Fries-avatar

    I would love the ability to pay to disable all involuntary ads as a separate feature from having infinite lives. Likewise it would be really cool to be able to buy premium for a reduced price on a per language basis. A little over two weeks in and I feel this has been more effective than languages classes in the past. However, it doesn't always explain things to you until after you're wrong (tense, conjugation, etc). That said, the aspect of repetition has helped me learn very well.

  31. Kat Hogan-avatar

    I've been using duolingo for a while to keep up with my studies. It's great for both learning new information, and staying on top of what I've already learned. It provides, written, visual, and audible teaching methods, which can help those who don't always thrive in a traditional learning sense. This app is also great with cheering you on as you learn, and I think the characters are an cute way to help motivate learners. For best results I definitely recommend keeping a study journal as well.

    This app is awesome! Now I have learned so much French that I can properly have a conversation with somebody ,which I thought would never happen. The tips menu gives a lot of helpful hints for the lesson, and overall the design is very appealing to the eye! My only problem is the loves system, and I don't really want to go for the Duolingo plus subscription. Overall, C'est très bon !

  33. Robert Lacina-avatar

    Robert Lacina


    And.... Back to a one-star rating. Just as they improved some things, they've gone to using "hearts" in the Android version. Make a mistake, lose a heart. Lose all 5 hearts and lose all your progress in the current lesson. Learning should be about encouragement, not punishment. I use a mobile device for Duolingo. Touch keyboards can be a bit finicky and even minor typos will cause you to lose a heart. The "hearts" system has sucked all the enjoyment out of learning with Duolingo.

  34. Danny Hyslop-avatar

    Danny Hyslop


    By far the most superior language learning tool. Duolingo starts the learning experience with the building blocks of the language and constructs a solid foundation to understand and move forward. Far better than just throwing random sentences at the student. ....... and it's all free with an option to upgrade which isn't continually pushed in your face. Its a pain being continually asked to leave a review once you've left one , though.

  35. Cody Breshears-avatar

    Cody Breshears


    This program started out as a wonderful learning tool. As the lessons progressed and subsequently became harder, the errors I made caused me to have to either pay for the app, or wait. Not sure if I wanted to pay for it yet, but having been drug through watching a million ads just to get to a point where I have to leave the app off for a day annoys me. Why they haven't figured out that you should get hearts by watching more ads is beyond me. Revenue is revenue. Fix it

    I am enjoying and benefitting from learning Italian. The one complaint I have is that the recorder doesn't always accept the phrases I say. I can't force an accent I don't have. Even if I record the actual Italian's voice recording (after getting frustrated), it doesn't always accept its own voice! There should be a way to bypass the record requirement for those of us who are merely trying to learn a language to keep our brains sharp.

    I've been using the free version so far and it has excellent built-in motivation. I have learned a lot of Portuguese, although I know there is much left to learn. The wait for advertisements is tiresome but DL hasn't said how much the paid version costs. One complaint is the system marks you wrong and deducts points when you say it correctly but different from how the system is programmed.

    Great app to assist in learning a language. I've gotten farther though my goal of learning a second language than I ever thought I would. There are updates and improvements throughout the year, so the app is not stagnant. And Duo is a very cute little owl.

  39. blackmaggit-avatar



    It's okay.. I find it hard to actually learn with this app. If it updated to have the grammar tips it would be a lot better. Its so easy to click through without learning anything, and the rewarding dings make it tempting to do so. When I take the time to go through it slowly, it is good as a starting point or revision point, but without grammar explanations I feel like I'm winging it without learning much.

    Duolingo makes learning another language so fun! In 1 week I have learned so much. It makes you translate from one language to the next in writing and speech. There is also matching games, fill in the blanks, short stories (that are funny) and response scenarios. I'm excited to continue because I have always wanted to be fluent in another language.

  41. Soffia Stoltzfoos-avatar

    Duolingo is great for people who wamt to learn a new language. Each course is different and specifically tailored to that language. First, you go through the basics, then you move on to everything else you need to fluently speak whatever language you want. Duolingo combines multiple learning styles to ensure you can understand, read, write, and speak the language(s) you choose. I like that you can go through multiple courses at once.

    I'm studying Hebrew on my smart phone. This app was recommended. However this app does not work well for me. When I type, there are no points on my keyboard. It considers I have misspelled at times because of that. It does spend anytime explaining, then does not give enough chances to learn before it cuts you off a lesson. For people like me who cannot see well, it is death! It does not allow for illness n dumps you out of the top ten. This is an app, not a college class. Rethink this!!!!

  43. Joe-avatar



    This is probably the best best way to learn a language! I would absolutely recommend it! The biggest downside is the extremely restrictive heart system that chokes your learning by punishing your every mistake. (Please fix that). Despite this shortcoming Duolingo is by far the easiest and most effective means of learning a language I have found after years of searching for free resources.

    I've never missed a single day since starting last June. I think it's a great app. However, I not giving 5 stars for 3 reasons. 1. It would be more beneficial having more commonly used phrases and sentences 2. In the stories, it would help when clicking a read out sentence to press continue before correcting immediately as sometimes the screen doesn't take the click & marks incorrectly 3. The leaderboard. It doesn't make sense. It should be based on crowns not XPs as it doesn't reflect progress

    Like a rollercoaster, first I rated 5 stars than one, when the hearts were implemented and once again I am rating it 5 stars. The hearts addition is good for people who wants to really learn something, to go ahead with advance lessons, you need to finally write down sentences you have messed up. So, to go thru lessons is hard but rewarding. You know the whole purpose of the hearts is for them to push you purchase the Duolingo plus. But I won't let them.

    Great app, I joined a long time ago but never really took it seriously, even though it was free. I should've taken it seriously way back in the day when I started learning languages. Now it is way more difficult to teach old dogs new tricks. I also love how it was free, but I subscribed so that hopefully it will remain free for everyone else even though very few will appreciate the fact that those of us deep subscribe too help keep it free will realize what we are doing. Thank you DUOLINGO.

    At first when I saw the ads and promotions of Duolingo on social media, I didn't took it seriously. But, a couple of weeks before, I thought of visiting the application once. I was abashed for what I have thought after seeing its promotions. The interface and the way of mentoring impressed me a lot. This app justifies five star rating.

    Absolutely LOVE this app! It's been super easy to navigate and free, which is amazing in itself. I've learned quite a bit from this app so far. I recommend it to anyone that really wants to learn a new language and doesn't want to pay to do so! My significant other pays for a different app, and he seen this app while I was learning..Needless to say, he likes this app more too!

  49. Velma-avatar



    This app is very good. It helps you learn a language quite quickly and with no need to pay for those expensive courses or a tutor. It's a fast pocket to-go language learning app and I recommend it to absolutely everyone, HOWEVER there is a heart system that punishes you for making mistakes which defeats the purpose of Duolingo itself. If I was good enough not to make mistakes in a language, I wouldn't have downloaded this app in the first place, so why do I get punished for mistaking?

    Great way to learn language. Fun and easy to use. Has more languages than almost anyone else. It's the only app I could find with Ukrainian. The free version is really awesome. Thinking of upgrading just to support them. I do wish they had more explanations for some of the grammar rules rather than leaving you to just figure it out. But for a free app this is unbeatable.

    The unpaid version is much better than I expected. I always expect it to be lousy unless you pay, and since I'm broke, I didn't have high hopes. But I've been really impressed with this app. There are ads but they're not horrendous, and the unpaid version is totally usable. I feel like I'm really getting somewhere. I'm using this app daily in combination with listening to music in Spanish and I'm getting noticeably better .

    It's a fun immersive experience discovering a foreign language. Straightaway, you get to discover the pronunciation, grammar rules and usage all at once. It can be better if each sentence and word comes with an audio on how to pronounce them.

    I'm trying to learn Mandarin and an issue I keep running into is that words are introduced or taught beforehand. A new word will be introduced in a listening exercise and I need to magically know how it's written from hearing it for the first time. Instead of applying any knowledge regarding the word, in guessing to try not to lose hearts. It's truly frustrating.

    I find the learning experience fun. It also keeps me mentally sharp. I can tell by my performance in the lessons whether I am focused that day or not. If I am not focused I will cut my time short after making my daily target. I do miss some documentation to indicate what all the bells and whistles are and what breaks the previous completed lessons. More stories in the book section would also be a great benefit.

    Too many annoying adds, also you will struggle if you have dyslexia. Very unforgivable of spelling errors which isn't a problem if you don't always forget how something is spelt. Otherwise a good way to learn a language. Although I miss the old system that didn't give you a limited amount of lives, I find it harder to progress with this as it requires you to buy more if you lose all hearts (which is pretty easy to do the further on you get).

    if it's fun for you, it's a great way to learn a language, but not the endgame of a language. the nature of this app limits the deep dive into a language and that's ok because the app doesn't aim to do that. i came back after 3 years and the app has only improved, the little tutorial pages, the proper competitive board, it's all done very well. Missing one star because the languages consistently seem to aim for conversational level, i wish i could choose between formal and casual.

    They recently changed the app so you have hearts. If you make mistakes you lose hearts and if you run out you have to pay money to keep learning. My daughter whose only 8 has been using this app to learn Japanese, but makes lots of mistakes cause she's a kid. With this change she can't make any progress without forking over money (and she doesn't learn well under stress.) Mistakes is part of the learning process and now they are penalizing part of the learning process.

    I'm getting very frustrated. I have paid for premium and the app does not accept my answers when it is a speaking task. I have flagged it on the app many times, uninstalled and reinstalled it multiple times but nothing seems to be working. It's been like this for several months, and although my language knowledge is improving i fear my verbal communication is being hindered. Other than this it would be 5 stars.




    4 stars . So many reminders but I really enjoy having time with this app . I had a really good experience with duolingo . I have learned so many languages but I think its time to say goodbye to it . Thank u duolingo application. I travel around the world it is a very appropriate app for tourist like me. Its a free app. More than 30 languages are provided. It is in picture form and when to have a test sound option is applicable. Thank u for the time

    I studied some Russian in high school and now at 37 years old, decided to both see what I could remember and see if it was still possible for my "old" brain to learn things. Duolingo is a great app from this perspective, I can't comment on what its like for learning languages from scratch, but as a refresher or development tool used in conjunction with other things then I would say it's excellent. *Edit* Deducted a star because the app does not understand correctly pronounced Russian Numbers!

    Since their recent update I find myself hating Duolingo! You're not able to make mistakes, you lose "hearts" and are bullied into purchasing more before you can continue your lessons. After not doing any lessons you have to start over in the file! The speaking lessons are hard to hear, I feel they do this on purpose so you'll mess up, then comes their instrusive "premium" ads; one actually interupted my lesson! Who are you guys trying to impress? App is junk, and not even worth it; uninstal!

    A great, fun, and interactive app in general, but as someone with learning disabilities, the lives system is a real motivation killer. It sucks a lot going on and trying to get things right, only to get multiple wrong in a row and then I have to wait a while to try again. Makes it not really worth learning any languages with.

    I've been taking a Spanish class for 2 years, and I've learned more on Duolingo in four days than I have in that time. It's really easy to use on both mobile and PC. The adds aren't too annoying and there aren't many, the rankings are fun and the exercises are engaging. The minimum suggested time is five minutes a day and I'll find myself coming back 2-3 times a day to practice! I love bouncing back and forth between my courses and praticing just for fun! Highly recomend! Amusez-vous à pratiquer

    Interactive with verbal pronunciation by a French person so able to learn the correct pronunciation. Good exercises which are re-inforced if you get something incorrect. Ability to listen. Teaches male and female. Better than other French language learning I have undertaken. I also really like that i can dip in daily, go at my own pace and choose the amount of time I want to spend on each lesson. I would highly recommend.

    Honestly, this app deserves a five star rating but I'm giving it a four star one because I personally feel like it should have like a dictionary of sorts. Like when i see a sentence in the language that I'm learning and dont know the meaning of it, I would like to come to duolingo instead of just looking it up on google. I feel like the dictionary should also include the common uses of the word, the actual meaning and stuff. It's just a suggestion.

    Went great for 3 months. Now it crashes and I cannot access my account but that was not the end of the story. I reached out to Duolingo and received prompt and courteous service when I unsuccessfully tried to reset my password, after reinstalling the app to correct the problem. The issue was with Google apps crashing. I am delighted to continue my lessons and appreciate it even more now. Thank you Sarah L. at Duolingo plus.

    Super helpful. Duolingo focuses on all the key areas of language learning. There is authentic native audio used, which is important for real life situations involving comprehension and speech. The learning structure also covers reading and writing in a well paced and step by step structure. I also like how there is a reward and day streak system, which is motivating and also keeps you from forgetting your daily lesson. You can also costomize your daily goal. Overall, a perfect tool for the job.

    New read. I love Dou and have used it for years. However recently the app has begun to try to push users into buying it. This is done in two ways, first you are given five wrong answers per day, but the main issue is that Dou seems to expect you to use what can only be described as queen's english when translating to english. In short I rarely finish a lesson any more. Not due to lack of comprehension on my part. But rather because Dou expects me to translate in a way that makes no sense.

    I love this app and at the moment I am doing French to help with my GCSEs and it has really improved my understanding of the language. The only reason why I did not put 5 stars is the premium nonsense. I do get things wrong on the app but then I have to wait another 4 hours to try again. All in all, the app is great but a couple things could always be improved.

    It's a great app to get you started with a new language. I didn't give it full 5 stars because: I do not have a pro version but it would be great to see the graph for the amount of XPs gotten per day over the entire usage of the app for each language. It is also rather sad that they did not cover more languages and that so few are available to non-English speakers

    Great way to learn languages. Very convenient and handy app. Wide selection of languages to choose from. Very invasive adds in the free version. Picture adds is one thing I can live with, animated gifs even. Video with blaring sound is too much. Especially when I've already told the app I want silent lessons that time. This is an embarrassing oversight.

    I've been learning Spanish on Duolingo over a few years. When I started the app was quite simple. The easy levels were very easy and I moved through them very quickly. However as I progressed things became tricky and frustrating as words, phrases and sentence structure changed without explanation!! The recent improvements which include 'tips' at every level and topic help you understand much better. The wide and varied vocabulary has helped with my fluency and ability to communicate.

    The app is good and very addictive. There are a lot of nice features and it teaches fast, however, the problem with this app is that it only has you memorize words and phrases. It doesn't teach or explain anything. Although this is great if you are planning on learning some of the language, if you are trying to become fluent then this is a very inefficient way to learn it. The app is still fun and will help you learn some.

    I have had Doulingo a while but only started doing it again a few days ago, and was not happy with the changes I saw-or one change. Before, there was no "hearts" and you could make as many mistakes as you wanted. But now, you have 5 hearts a day and have to "buy" more with gems in case you made a lot of mistakes or want to do several lessons, since you will make 1 or 2 mistakes every lesson, if you're anything like me. Other than that, it is fine, though maybe a bit elementary.

    Purpose of the app seems good. Learning experience so far is nice as well. However, even after enabling the paid subscription I'm still getting ads. I appreciate the need to earn for your work, but i will not continue to pay for something that is in breach if its own agreement. No ads means NO ADs. Please fix this now, or you will lose a subscription ( 3 actually as this is on my families accounts as well).

    I love this app.. So far no issues or nuisance. I totally understand that advertisements are their way of making a profit for free users like me and I totally support it. Watching advertisements is all worth it from what I'm gaining in this app. It's quite easy and fun to learn French! I have nothing to say but all praises for this app. Who ever created this concept is a total genuis!

    If you are just starting out learning this app is usually a go to but from my experience there are way better apps out there. This app takes an extremely slow approach to learning and is not set up well for some languages.

    Learning a language like a little child at first, discovering language patterns, no complicated grammar lessons (later on you might be interested in concise grammar tips the app provides). With only ten minutes per language every day, the progress is slow but I don't seek proficiency in foreign languages. Let's not forget that learning new skills helps the brain to stay in shape.

    Doulingo is a great app for learning new language (for beginners), Actually I had to learn korean and it really helped me step by step... So it's quiet good, But the reason I gave it 4 stars is because when we sometimes can't practice or are unable to visit the app for some days it annoys again and again By sending messages in e-mail. That's the thing which I find annoying Or everything else is great. It's nice app. Thanks duolingo 😘😊😊

    I use Duolingo primarily for German so far. German has been pretty good. It doesn't have the best "tips" to explain the grammar / rationale behind the language. I recommend supplementing with additional resources, even if it's an occasional article or tutorial online. WISH they would use articles der/die/das EVERY time nouns are mentioned. I have been using Japanese second most, and have prior knowledge from my own education. Japanese offerings could be improved a lot, esp. in structure.

    I just downloaded this app and about 15 minutes in I'm out of 'hearts' and can't use it again for 4 hours. Aside from that I don't really like the lesson format, I kind of flail through them because there is no organisation or explanations about anything - it seems like I'm all ready supposed to know how to read an pronou nce the Cyrillic alphabet too (Russian). I much prefer Babel, which very clearly explains things and makes much more sense!

  84. CarrotStix-avatar



    It's really good, we're using this app at my school and it has helped me learn French quite fluintlently, I would recommend this app to people who are trying to learn a language. Although, you do have hearts which means that I can't learn as much as I would without making a mistake. I'm not really willing to spend money on getting unlimited hearts though.

    Desperately needs a button for when you have to speak to the app, that you can say I'm done/I've said it. Because there are times in my office where there literally is no noise, I say everything correctly and the app continues to listen, all words are green and nothing, sometimes I'll repeat the phrase again & again still nothing. It'll keep listening for several minutes till it tells you its skipping speaking lessons for an hour, or if your lucky it will chime and continue the lesson.

  87. Rebecca-avatar



    I've used this app for a really long time and it used to be absolutely amazing. It still is very good with so much content however, I absolutely detest the 5 lives you get in the free version. It's got to the point where I often learn using their website on my phone instead of the app just so I have the room to make more than five mistakes. I don't mind the ads between lessons, but not being able to continue learning after a few mistakes has really impacted my motivation to keep it up.

    Still buggy. I have had the choice of two wrong options when the third correct option is off the screen.

    Great app give it time and you catch on... Only thing I would like to see is when it asks to "translate to english" could it specify translate the letters or the actual word, because I know what it means but sometimes I translate it in Japanese and it's actually asking for the meaning in English. Other than that it's great.

    The App is good . the fact tha it lets me learn at my pace and convenience is great. Overall its easy to follow. However, thre are a few annoying bits. 1. if there is a typo in the answer. it marks the answer wrong. I feel there should be a feedback about the tpos but not mark the whole answer wrong. 2. Its difficult to show accents with the english querty key board. There should be some solution given for this.

    Might be more fun if it didn't punish you for missing a day. I have the paid version. You'd think I'd have an option to pause the app when needed. I have to use gems to get streak freezes which causes me to try to make up for it the next day, it's stressful. Thought it would be fun to learn a language since I'm home so much. Honestly, it's become a chore at this point. Again, I paid for this. I should have a say in how I choose to learn.

    This app is great for driving you through the course. I've had to augment my experience with outside material when I didn't understand why the app was giving me seemingly conflicting teachings, however. Those conflicts arose because certain subtleties weren't explained. Once I was able to find outside material to alleviate my confusion, I've been able to progress rapidly. I've currently tried Duolingo, Rosetta Stone, Babbel, Lingvist and a handful of the free apps. Duolingo is the best.

    Not a bad app. Some adaptation for quick learners instead of repeating the exact same sentence over and over would be nice. And there is no explanation of grammar or rules for things such as making plurals. More useful as practice reinforcing some other more formal learning.

  97. Ashlee-avatar



    It has a lot of bugs. It constantly says my answer is wrong but when they show the right answer, my answer is the same. It still takes away your limited lives, even though you were right. When your lives run out, you can't study anymore for the day. I have been reporting that my answer should have been excepted for several months now, but I still have not seen any improvements to the app. Or any apologies. I think they do it on purpose so more people spend money on the upgraded version.

    I love this app, really cool that someone has created a free app to help people learn a different language (which can be very hard) but they make it fun and easy...

    Duolingo is on the whole brilliant however I keep getting so and so far in each module and then I get a "read and respond" question which just gives me the info and the rest of the screen is blank. When this happens you can't give any answer as there are no options, just blankness and therefore you can't progress to the next question, the only thing I can do is quit. It's very frustrating!!

    Duolingo is a good app, I really appreciate the design, the content and the little things like XP, missions to give the pleasure and desire to learn a lot. But however this favorite translation in your native language than the language you need to learn, in the ending you learn more your native language and no other. And also it confused you, but each time you releat an expression in your native language with another language. I mean duolingo must improve their app to favorite another language.

    This app was ok before, but never updated in a meaningful way. Then they tried to "gamify" it too much and now it's just garbage. My favorite part is how you can now pay 200 gems to try to skip a level, but are only awarded 6 gems if you pass (/s). I already feel bad enough competing with people who have more time and knock me down every week. On top of this the thirsty ads and incessant popups for Duo+ are gross. One star though for improving Japanese with the new Hiragana/Katakana tab tho.

    I've been using Duolingo for well over two years. (They fixed the reason that I quit the first time.) I wish they would make it possible to repeat a lesson, and some of the sentences are irritatingly silly, but they make improvements (I can go over my mistakes now, for instance.) If you have someone to speak with you'll probably get farther, faster. I finally got a notebook just for writing down the sentences. That helps too. Now they have stories so I can listen to dialogue.

    I have used this Duolingo from the start when they only offered a few languages. I was always happy with the application and the friendly nature of the interface, alongside the useful content. However, after using the app for many years, I decided to try out the Duolingo Plus TRIAL to test out the features. After starting the trial, a few days in when I wanted to cancel my trial before being charged, I found that I was unable to do so. I would receive an error message saying no subscription was found.I repeatedly attempted to cancel my subscription to no avail. And today, I was charged for the monthly fee because I was unable to cancel the trail. As a long time user and advocate of Duolingo (over 5 years) I am extremely disappointed and will not recommend this service to anyone at all anymore because of this fraudulent behavior the company has engaged in. A freemium application that encourages users to try out the Duolingo Plus and placing obstacles preventing users from canceling the subscription. As a long-time lover and advocate of Duolingo I am saddened to have to write this review and find it disheartening that the company I love and share with my friends is not what I had thought it to be. I would like to request an immediate refund of the amount charged to my account.

    So disappointed! I have used duolingo since the start and became fluent in Portuguese thanks to it's free learning. That option no longer exists and the pro version is so expensive it would be better to get a tutor online. Such a shame that making a mistake (or as it's otherwise known, learning) is now punished with the heart system. Why bother having a 'free' version at all unless just to maximise more revenue from countless adds? I no longer recommend duolingo to language learners.

    Great app. Im learning Welsh and it's great to hear good pronunciation of difficult Welsh we words. Having league tables also encourages the more competitive learner! You can also go over topics quite a few times until you feel you've got it..amd you can go back and refresh yourself on that topic at a later stage. I'm not bothered by the ads as it gives me time to repeat out loud what I've learned so far. I guess the only downer is it doesn't explain fully about grammar..Maybe PLUS gives u this.

  110. Cindy-avatar



    The app is very effective at reinforcing the various forms of learning a foreign language; visual, audio, writing, and translating. It may seem simplistic and advancement slow (at least with the free version), but that is what works. It sticks. I like the little characters, games, challenges, stories, and prize gems. Two requests, tho. 1. Special characters, such as umlauts, need to be added to Android apps. They are available when I use my PC, but not tablet. 2. Make app work in landscape mode

    The app works well enough with one exception I've found. During a few of the lessons you need to use your device microphone. This feature will not work for me even though my phones microphone works perfectly. This problem is blocking me from continuing with my lessons. I may be able to pay to go around the block, but that would defeat the purpose of trying to learn a new language in both writing and speaking it.

    I would give it 5 stars, except for two reasons. First, don't force people to go premium. If there are ads, trade ad time for heart refills. Don't force free users to watch ads after each lesson and then also make them do old lessons or wait to replenish hearts. Secondly, please bring back the training option. I want to be able to select one icon and be challenged with everything I have learned.

  116. Squee-avatar



    The new update punishes you for making mistakes, and puts you under pressure. You are offered gems(in-app money) in exchange for watching an advert. If you decline, you receive an advert regardless. I have enjoyed learning languages on here previously, but now I'm doing less and less as I get marked down for minor errors. When you lose all your hearts the crying owl is very patronising.

    This app is designed for anyone who is eager to learn a new language to do so with confidence. I have learnt many new Spanish words over a short period and is enjoying the method that is being used to teach. I would recommend this app for new beginners.

    A great app to learn languages that keeps getting better. The free version is awesome, and the features of plus are enticing and would probably help you learn faster. There is just enough structure, mixed with just enough vague areas to make you connect some of the dots yourself, helping you learn I'm a way that immersion does, at least a bit.

Some parts you translate the Italian to English, then a few questions later, I have to translate the same sentence, but write it in Italian myself. It makes your brain work, but throws the challenge at you while the info is still fresh in your mind, you get answers right, and that builds your confidence, which makes you want to keep learning because you feel so smart! 😊 Just wish you could do more with your gems

    I am using duolingo for more than 5 months. I found learning new languages easy with duo. Now i can understand other languages like french and spanish. I love this app. One who likes to learn new languages must download this app. It contains podcasts also.

    Have been enjoying it for a few weeks now, I find it eatier to keep it as a habit and since streak freezes are pretty easy to get my pride doesnt suffer too badly when I miss a day lol. I've taken to doing each lesson in the hour before bed, and that works for me for the most part!

    I'm learning 2 languages on this application and I think it's amazing in every part . the thing that is special about it is that it keeps repeating every section that I'm trying to complete even after finishing it and I think that is extremely useful for the users in order to never forget what you learned and memorise as many lessons as possible eventually .

    This is a brilliant app. Of course the ads are a bit annoying but I haven't bothered paying for it as it's so easy as it is. I have been learning Spanish for eight weeks and have progressed so much. This app in conjunction with spanishdict has taught me so much. I hardly ever recommend an app but get this, its great.

    It suggested 20min a day for "expert" studying but you really need to spend an hour minimum each day and keeping yourself accountable to practice speaking or writing the phrases to really learn your language. It easy to use and fun to learn. Today I have been having issues with the app and it keep crashing so hopefully this won't continue happening...

    As a qualified EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teacher, I am impressed that the app teaches in the approved order, hear, say, read, write. As I am learning a language with a different alphabet & script, I find the way this is taught to be both effective and easy to understand and absorb.

    This app is great to get you started in a language, and then it keeps you hooked on language learning with its point sistem and it leagues. I honestly love this app, the only recommendation I make to anyone using it to learn a language from scratch is to use other suplimentation such as grammar books in your desired language, videos on YouTube or even lessons if you feel you need them.

    Works well for brushing up on a language. I started using Duolingo to help me get back into Spanish, after learning it in school for 9 years (starting in elementary), then having a more than 5 year break. It's harder for me to learn a new language with this app (I've tried Japanese), but not impossible. I do like that you have a discussion board where other people can help you with questions related to specific translations, and that you can report answers that you gave that you think should have been marked correct, so that the developers can constantly check and improve the translations/possible answers. I really wish there was something we could do with all the in-game currency that we gain from completing lessons. You can buy 3 different costumes for your icon, and that's it. More recently, I've been confused why I haven't been able to do practice my pronunciation on questions in my lessons, even though it used to be an option (any one of my friends, who also has the app, can still do it on his). There are no longer speaking tasks with any of my lessons on my app, but they appear regularly if I sig in to Duo on my laptop (by the way, I like that they give the option to use laptop/computer or the app, so I can whatever is most convenient).

    I thought I'd pick it up again, but after seeing the new heart system, I'm just going to uninstall it now. How can you advertise 'free' education when it's clearly not? I can put up with adverts on a free app, but when you get punished for not performing well and it totally hinders your progress? No. Imagine if that's how our real teachers acted! (As a teacher myself, I will discourage my students from using it.)

    This free app turns learning a language into a fun game. It drills the lessons, so I don't forget them. The lessons are enjoyable, but the stories are even more amusing. It keeps points, compares my points with others and based on those points I go up a level, down a level, or maintain the level. The competition sometimes spurs me to do more than I intended to. Highly recommended.

    Great fun way to learn! The most important part for me is that I can listen to the words and phrases as much as I like, as hearing new sounds is the most difficult part of learning a language for me. Suitable for all ages as long as someone has basic literacy, and would really recommend to parents with reluctant language learners!

    I have been using Duolingo for almost three months as a part of my routine. I can now recognize more words and along with other Japanese language resources am very happy with my learning experience! To add, my son saw me using it and vegan Spanish lessons as well! We both love it and I recommend a kids section.

    Great app. Repetition is the mother of learning! Language acquisition experts may say Duo is repetitive, but it works for me. Of course, if you are serious of learning a language, you would use this and other tools. Request: Wish font sizes can be adjusted for easier viewing and recognition of characters for the likes of Chinese, Japanese, and Arabic (where contrast is looked at and counts).

    This app is a really good way of learning a language! I am learning Duch and it's going really well! The only thing I would say though, (this is why 4 stars) is I run out of hearts half-way through a session, so then I have the end all of the good work and earn a heart! But you only earn 1 heart why not 5!

    This has helped me learn a little more about the language I'm interested in but if your answer is wrong, they don't tell you why it is wrong. It's more about memorization than learning. Also, you have Limited attempts to pass each lesson which would normally be fine. But when I'm penalized because their grasp of my native language isn't very strong and I'm penalized because their translation is off, it's pretty frustrating

    A good app overall, easy to navigate, simple to use and my French has improved considerably. I do have small complaint though; the voice recorder never picks up my voice properly, no matter how loudly/ clearly/ close to the microphone I speak. Also, it often doesn't record my progress properly, so I must re-do lessons

  138. RainbowRide-avatar



    I like it! It's a very fun way to pick up some basics of a language. Keep in mind you won't become fluent by using only Duolingo, but it's a great tool for language learners to pick up vocab and practice. It's fun, and it motivates you to practice. I love the streak and achievement mechanics. It keeps me going!

    I'm having a lot of fun in this app! At first I thought it was too repetitive, but after working on it diligently for 53 days now i can out together sentences in other ways! I love the option to read the english version of the word with the dotted lines, it helps my vocab! Very looking forward to progressing. I did purchase premium because I hate ads, and my only thing is I wish there were more shop options! I like how it's like a game, i also love the leaderboards to do more lessons

    Very well structured way to learn a language, with good reinforcement along the way. I have 2 suggestions for improving it: 1. The mobile app version offers 'harder' review options for lessons previously completed with 20 points for these instead of 10 for basic reviews. It would be nice if this was also offered on the PC browser version. 2. The mobile app version uses 1-2% of my phone's battery per lesson. Would be nice if there was an option for white text on a black background to reduce this

    You'll lose your time. App seems okay. But I did a LOT of progress and it wanted me to log into an account so I did. Now I lost EVERYTHING. So no more access to the stuff i was learning before. Other apps out there wont make you start over. Also, doesnt understand the difference between football and soccer, in the american preference version. Normally this might not be an issue, except it will penalize you and subtract a life, trying to charge you money for something they got wrong.

    The mixed and interactive learning styles are fantastic and something you dont get from listening to podcasts or language CDs etc. Writing, speaking, reading and following stories all make it easier for the information to sink in and the way each style discretely repeats the key learning aims is really good. For me this is the best language learning aid I've ever come across. I'm a big fan recomend to anyone wanting to learn spanish. 10/10 👍😁

    I'm writing this review because I am disappointed at the recent update the tool tip for words in Japanese. It shows the pronunciation in romaji by default when you click words, when I just wanted the hiragana for it. Please, go back to how it was before or at least make an option to turn it off. While I am learning, except for the translation exercises, I like to only have Japanese resources and tips available. Thank you.

    I'm using this app to learn two lesser known languages (Hungarian, Scottish Gaelic) and it's really helping me out. The lessons are easy to follow, it's great with helping you build up a habit and you always feel like you're making headway with your learning. The adds are not distracting either, as they run at the end of every lesson and not in-between. Would 10/10 recommend :)

    Fun way to learn. Keeping a streak going is helping me consitantly practice. Many different lessons that start easy and ramp up in difficulty. While they have tips for each lesson I would have liked more instruction and introduction to new words or expressions. Some of the spoken words are garbled, sounds like an echo. Sounds worse on my newer phone than on my older tablet.

    My PAID account was hacked three days ago. Because of this, I discovered that Duolingo's customer support is essentially non-existent. I've submitted four bug reports and two forum topics, and the only advice I've received is "here is the link to submit a bug report". They have no direct support, only forums. There has been no response to my reports. There is no 2FA or other account security either. They're a good educational service, but they need to do better by their users

    I used to LOVE Duolingo. I'd happily spend HOURS studying. Lately I've been spending FAR LESS time on Duolingo. Not for lack of wanting to continue studying, but due to many recent changes I find Duolingo almost UNUSABLE. None of the changes were optional. More importantly, none of these deeply unnecessary changes actually did anything to help the learning process. Duolingo is supposed to make learning easy and fun, but it's definitely no longer easy or fun for me. I'm deeply disappointed.

    I downloaded and stopped for awhile because I didn't like the flow. When I came back, I'm sure after at least 2 updates, it felt like the flow was a lot better. I'm currently taking Spanish and love the stories. I hope in the future more content like that can be added to other languages, preferably Japanese. Thanks for making this app. Right now I'm experiencing an inability to even log in, the app keeps crashing. I tried doing a fresh install and it's not letting me finish the download even.

    You can tell the creators are genuine as you are given free chances time and time again, and there is no interruptions during a lesson- only after you are finished, there will be ads. Brilliantly made, and makes learning easier.( Currently learning Norwegian). The only aspect I don't like is the app doesn't really tell you why some sentences are phrased like they are. Would highly recommend if looking to learn a new language!
