    Awesome sauce! The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the people they used to do voice overs (at least in Spanish) slur words together and the only way to understand what they're saying is to have it read slow. I'm not just saying they talk fast, they literally turn 2 words into one. Anyway, other than that it's a great app.

    download Re:1962453 For the past few days, I have encountered following issue. After completing the lesson, I earned 99 gems. I then clicked to open another chest (view an ad) to receive more gems. But the screen became black, the ad didnt't play, and the 99 gems that I earned were not added to my total gems count. Before the lesson, I have 7509 gems. I should have 7608 gems after completing the lesson but that is not the case. I don't mind if it happened once but this has happened for the past few days!

  3. Katie Dickie-avatar

    apk This app is quite good for helping to learn different languages that I have seen so far, I installed it about two hours ago and I've noticed when it asks for you to speak in the language you're learning it says it's correct even if you say a completely random word. Besides this it's a really good app, and if this is possible please fix it. Thank you

    app Duolingo is great and I love it. I have learnt so much already. You should, however, fix the listening exercises by making the speaker button and the snail-speaker button smaller. These buttons take up too much space when the on screen keyboard pops up, and leaves too little space for the words that one types. I tend to make many typos, and find it frustrating when I try and correct my mistakes in the listening excercises before submitting my answer.

  5. Matthew Kyle-avatar

    for pc Very helpful as a learning tool but isn't a complete language class. Also would you PLEASE stop blaring the volume on ads in the free version? I'm happy to help you collect ad revenue, but not when it makes me jump. Ad choices would be helpful too, because seeing an ad for a sniper game shooting ordinary humans on the street from a rooftop makes me sick to my stomach & sad for the world.

  6. James Goggin-avatar

    download for pc I enjoy learning Spanish with Duolingo. The thing that stops me giving it 5 stars is the constant reminders about dropping out of the top ten! I am competitive by nature but I was doing modules without really learning just to keep in the top ten. As a result I stopped and uninstalled it. Eventually I saw sense and started again. I now couldn't care less where I am in the league table I just do as much as I can in the time I have available.

  7. kempak k-avatar

    apk download Worked well for a few weeks but then stopped working on WiFi. No problem with any other apps and have a decent enough connection. Switch over to 4g and it works. So looks like Duolingo having issues connecting with bt sent in error report but no word yet. Annoying because I was getting into it makes the app almost unusuable having to switch to 4g each time to start a lesson.

  8. Karin More-avatar

    apkpure Too many run-on sentences and bad grammar in English translations. But on the whole I really like this app. Short lessons, easy to get most right, lots of variety to keep it interesting. LOTS to study for free! Suggestion: nouns should be taught with an article so we automatically know which gender they are and it gets drilled into our brains!! A list/dictionary of words we've learned would be really helpful. Also a list of conjugations of the verbs would be nice!!

    دانلود I love this app! It has many great things to learn a language. My only problem is that I have the speak setting turned on, but it never gives me one of those exersises in the japanese course. I would really like to practice my speaking voice so I sound good. I do not know if that is not working on japanese, but I would like to. Otherwise, I totally suggest the app! It is the greatest language learning app I have seen so far!

  10. Tangeryne-avatar

    uptodown It's a good app for learning a language. But I find that some of the sounds are too similar. When I have to click on the right characters for the sound being played, I usually have to decide based on pitch. I should be able to distinguish "Mo", "Bo" and "Po", but they sound too similar. Also, the heart system is annoying. Why does an language learning app force me to stop using it for the day because of a few errors? The app is overall decent, but you can't deny these setbacks.

  11. Jody Hartley-avatar

    This is great! I was fairly fluent in French as a teenager but never had the opportunity to use it until recently when visiting a friend in Belgium. I discovered a lot of that knowledge was buried deep in my brain, waiting for release! I wasn't there long enough to really get into it but I knew I could. 50 odd years later, I am amazed at how much I can remember! This app takes you slowly through different practical situations and applications. I think if I didn't have some distant knowl

  12. Carlos Uzaier-avatar

    So far, this app has been great. Learning Danish has been quite an enjoyable experience. There are only a few minor flaws like the pronunciation being slightly cut off and the main menu running at an unoptimal framerate, but Duolingo more than makes up for it with the user-friendly interface and fun lessons.

    I like it, BUT I absolutely hate the loading screens. They always 95% of the time get stuck or frozen. Also I don't like we only get like 5 hearts, and unless you're doing perfectly, they will definitely run out real quick. I want to have my lessons offline, as well. I don't want to pay for no ads that should not be there in the first place :(

  14. TJ Ziv-Wynn-avatar

    Very engaging! I usually turn off notices, but I can choose what I want to be alerted about and this is a rare case where I like the reminder. I appreciate the option to be repetitive or move forward, and I especially like the function that recalls you to earlier lessons for a recap to bring your points back up. It's an excellent application of learning as a game, and I look forward to learning more languages. I recommend using this in conjunction with other language lessons as well.

  15. Richard Austin-avatar

    The activities are mostly fun and help with learning a language. They are rather repetitive, though, and full of mistakes and awkward translations. There's a whole Japanese lesson on rock-scissors-paper, or whatever they've decided to call it, and you're guaranteed to lose points if you play the game differently *in English* from the developers. And you're not allowed to progress until you've passed it. What a joke!

  16. Shank-avatar

    An amazing app to learn languages. It takes you slow and you don't even realise when you got good. I've tried a lot of apps but they've always been too overwhelming and not very structured (Ones for English to Spanish). The only drawback, as I see it, is that the app doesn't have difficulty control. As I get better I want to learn faster and take up more difficult exercises. If that could be fixed, it is hands down the best in its field. Moreover, it is free!

  17. Khalid Hasan-avatar

    i really like this app ... it really started the lessons from scratch n helped me learn a lot.... but it would have been even better if it gave small explanations about the grammatical structure n sentence formation n why is something said in a particular way as it would have helped in understanding that language better.... otherwise its wonderful.. n i really love that i dont have to worry about making mistakes while learning as the hearts r gone😁😁

  18. Shruti Mitra-avatar

    Really helpful app and the modules are repetitive to get you hooked to doing tests. It reminds me everyday to take the test and learn new words, sometimes reminds me too often which can be a little annoying wrt to getting notifications but also works out for me. Overall, a good app, would recommend for you to use.

  19. Surriya-avatar

    Great, best app for people who learn many languages. I love it. It simply makes learning fun, free and great. I have never given any comment before but this is simply perfect for casual learners. To be simple I recommend to use it. By the same time i also has one small request, the audio recorder should be updated. However it is worth giving five stars.

  20. Pol Foreman-avatar

    Used to be a great app, but uninstalled it since it started forcing me to watch unskippable video ads. Sorry, but no, you do not get to take control of my device like that (having to use the "back" key to even leave the app while the videos run) and use my data. Just to be clear: I have absolutely nothing against ads appearing in the app, I am after all using it for free. But unskippable video ads? That's clearly malicious design and should never be accepted.

  21. Gacha_Basset-avatar

    This is overall an amazing app! I love it on computer, where you don't have to use lives, but on android and/or other devices other than computer, the lives system does get annoying. It is overall a great website on computer though! The amazing part is it is totally FREE. I have tried other apps, but they would just do the most random things. I was recommended to this by a friend, who is learning Spanish too, and my other friend is getting pretty fluent on Japanese! Overall love this app, and would recommend it to someone any day! You can even learn multiple languages if you want! I already have a few other people in my family learning too! We might start speaking Spanish so I can start to memorize the language! Best app to download, and premium isn't necessary, unless you BARELY EVER have internet. The ONLY thing that I want you to remove is the lives system, but overall, AMAZING app! I hope you found this helpful!

  22. Jason Howard-avatar

    I tried the Greek course and whilst I found the app useful the voice was very hard to understand at times and even seemed to mispronounce what was shown on the screen which had the net effect of losing hearts. I did see comments in the forum regarding the new voice which changed recently. This leads you to make mistakes and drives you to the paid for version. I also could not create a profile when I tried to connect via Facebook which was frustrating. Overall quite disappointing.

    I love you, but some of the pronounciation is very confusing. When it's a male voice it's different and when it comes to the female voice, it's different again. Please fix that especially in french. We don't know which voice and pronunciation to follow. Over all I'm glad that this is a free + ad app. We know you need the money because hard work is needed too <<33 love you lots

  24. Parniyan G-avatar

    Thank you for your amazing app, but I have some complaints. Actually, I have found some bugs in Duolingo while learning Italian. Firstly, there are many times that the listening part of the sentences and words does not work, and this has a huge impact on the learning process. Secondly, sometimes the app stops working and blacks out. I was wondering if you could fix these problems. Thank you for your considerations.

    So far, so wonderful. It's easy to grasp, bite-sized in proportion, and has a bunch of really great commitment gimmicks from encouragement to goal setting. For "value added" is it possible to get the advertisements in between lessons in the language we're practicing? It would be nice to keep the language consistent throughout.

  26. Dart Callahan-avatar

    It isn't as interactive as I thought it would be but with it being free and offering multiple languages, how can one complain? I'm not far into the lessons but it really plays on memory which helps me out. I like hearing the pronunciations but it doesn't give the option to hear it sounded out every question, mainly the ones where you translate the sentence. Hands down amazing app. Recommended for all. Download now haha.

  27. Sergio Gomez-avatar

    I am very glad to have this awesome app where you can brush up on your favorite language listed in these choices. If the language you are looking for is not listed, you could ask for it. Whether they have it or not, this should not make Duolingo less special. It covers many areas of the language you are learning with very useful tips to make your learning experience less difficult. This is a helpful language mini course yet very useful at the tip of your hands...Enjoy!!👍😀

  28. Sandra Ahola-avatar

    great tool with much more than expected. The app teaches you to read, write, speak and listen. Love the motivation not to make mistakes so you can keep going. Charming positive feedback on process. Ads are not intrusive. One ad I see is in Spanish. More advertisers should place ads in the language you are learning. The only negative is I'd like to move on to new material faster. It feels like I'm in the same place too long.

  29. H M-avatar

    This is really fun and engaging. The pictures are cute. The exercises are just difficult enough to be challenging, and I like that when I run out of hearts I have to revisit earlier lessons to earn more, so I'm going over material enough times to actually learn it. I'm learning more using this app than I ever did from a book, and I find it a relaxing way to unwind at the end of the day. I like unlocking different levels and the encouraging messages help motivate me to keep going.

  30. andrew childs-avatar

    This is a good app, however there are still plenty of ways th app could be improved. I have an older account, so i dont get the obnoxious hearts which limit how many mistakes you get in a day. Sometimes the app is slow to respond and submits answers before you are finished. Other times, it gives no explanation for why something is wrong. Could be better, but i wont be switching apps (provided they leave old accounts alone and dont screw them up with the heart system) 3/5 - more helpful than not

  31. Eddie boy 109-avatar

    I love the app as it is so easy to use but as a young user trying to do 20 minutes a day mistakes are frequent. And 5 hours to to get a single heart seems very over the top please change this because my phone doesn't seem to accept any type of online payment as it just takes the money and says I says I have £0:00 which means I can't get the plus version and it would be very helpful for my learning. :)

  32. Shailla Quadra-avatar

    Looove it! Totally recommend! Oh, only annoying thing is learning languages with different characters not available on our phone set up in English, because it will not accept the answers typed using English classes, for example, I had to stop Russian lessons because it wouldn't let me move forward unless I typed the answer in Russian characters. Tried adding Russian to my phone, but didn't go through, unless I changed my whole phone to Russian, which would make a bit messy.

    It's great that they are able to put out such a high quality language learning app for free. I understand that this requires them to run ads for revenue, but the ads have become EXTREMELY buggy. It's not even about the quantity of ads, the ads themselves are impossible to close out in some instances and I have to completely close out the app for it to work. this is making the app unusable.

  34. Jayashree Jai-avatar

    Actually speaking it is the best app for learing languages. It makes the reader to read regularly and making to do the task to get better in it. When i started to learn languages from this app i wondered, is it free with these excellent features ! anyone can learn any number of language of your own. Instead of watching youtubes and downloading them this app is pretty good. The tips are so useful to take notes. I suggest the app to have alphabets and basic numbers for every lang to make us clear.

  35. Zona 's Outlet-avatar

    Very good app for learning French. Ads are a minor issue. Sometimes when you go to type something into English, the commas will turn into periods. It is very annoying. Also, the Facebook ad will glitch out and you have to close the app in order for it to work again. Again, a very good app. Just needs some tweaking.

  36. Judith De Leo-avatar

    The app seems to offer less than the website. There are too many exercises of the type that displays the answer in the form of individual words that need to be slid into place. Sometimes they're already in place and I need only touch the confirmation box. This is far to easy to be useful. What is good is the ease of use and the possibility of setting up very brief lessons. There is a nice mix of exercises that only lacks an exercise that could listen to and critique my own pronunciation.

  37. mark newman-avatar

    Decent app. Easy to navigate and the lessons are perfectly weighted. The only thing that I can pick fault with is that you are encouraged to take a lesson every day to build up points. Some days I take the lesson in the morning and other days in the morning. But when I take it in the morning it doesn't register as being completed

  38. gatts13-avatar

    Terrible to learn Japanese, at the beginning it's great to learn hiragana, katakana and other basic stuff, but then it reaches a point where the app is just throwing words at you to brute force the language into you with no real explanation. The activities where you have to translate and construct sentences is super inconsistent, to the point where it's more efficient to just memorize the questions themselves and their answer rather than answer them.

    It's great for learning some basics, but there are certain rules it doesn't explain. For example, in Dutch there's all the slecht/slechte stuff, and I'm literally guessing because the app doesn't explain when to use it. I have to rely on help from other users, but even then there's conflicting information. Duolingo should teach you when to use the forms of the word, instead of weird sentences. I once got "you are purpler than a cuberdon". when will I use that sentence?

  40. andy bunn-avatar

    A great free app with a ton of languages on offer to learn. There's a mixture of ways the lessons are delivered which keeps it fresh and engaging. There could be a little bit more explanation of how the app WORKS. New words were introduced without telling me what they meant so I had to guess. I don't understand the point of the heats and diamonds. One thing that would be really useful is a library of words to keep after each lesson. It's a fun n fab app and I recommend it.

    This is so far the best ever platform for you to learn a new language. I'd say it is even better than the realistic classroom experience because Duolingo makes learning absolutely fun and intersting. The course structure is perfectly desgined and if you take this seriously, im sure that you can learn the essentials of the language pretty soon !! I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone who wishes to do this, for free of cost.

  42. MagmaKat-avatar

    The addition of stories is like an assessment of how you're doing which is great. The leagues are ok for comparing your progress in the last week but not much else unless you enjoy competition which is fine once in a while. I wish there was an option for clubs as I personally prefer the interaction in learning, especially with friends and it's highly unlikely to be in the same league as a friend. Because of that, it has become more of a game but is still good.

  43. Aranya Singh-avatar

    It's an amazing app. Apparently 34 hours on duolingo teach more than one semester of a language class course. There are no in-app purchases...the whole app is free. And they don't even give disruptive ads. There is a ranking boards as well. So you always stay upto your work and actually want to go forward with it. I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn a new knowledge for fun

    This is great for a free app! I've been enjoying playing it almost like a video game every night for a few weeks. I am already an intermediate Spanish speaker and I think the thing that bothers me most is that it uses the type of Spanish that is most frequently spoken in Spain, but being in California where the Spanish is influenced heavily by Mexico, the two types of Spanish are actually different. It has made passing levels harder and this aspects of the lessons much less relevant.

  45. GT Lilly-avatar

    Missing some obvious features such as rearranging tiles after picking from word bank, ability to go back in a lesson, ability to always hear a pronunciation, option to speak to stop the repetitive typing, and more. Then again it's free so from that standpoint not too bad. You will not be able to speak a language only using this. You will need to augment with other resources.

  46. Es Di-avatar

    This is probably the best free language learning app. Duolingo Plus may be a good idea for some of the languages. Some other courses are not good enough though. Paying for them is not worth it. Especially if one considers that many courses are not updated or moderated anymore.

    This is a five star app! I really like the way it is designed, my only complaint is about the "lives" thing. If you make too many mistakes, you lose lives, and you only get a limited amount of them per day, which really hinders learning. Other than that, it's really great and makes it really easy to learn a new language! I'm currently learning German. Would recommend

  48. Gary Johnston-avatar

    I have learned some German while using this app, a great pastime and a way to educate at the same time. I would give it a 5 star rating it they would remove the lives, they started off by making money from ads (not a problem for me as they are not so overbearing) but now they want us to pay for unlimited lives. They are getting greedy in my opinion. So in summary The lives system 1* The rest of the game 5*

  49. Elsa Fairfax-avatar

    It's a really amazing app. You can get almost all benefits without Duolingo plus too. Every other app or way I've tried to learn a language is not free or too expensive for me. But Duolingo has quality, it shows us the pronunciation, expands our vocabulary bit by bit and is considerate of our time.

  50. Mark Karbula-avatar

    Only used it a little, but after seeing the lesson format i could see this as an effective way not only to learn languages, but instruments such as guitar..or piano. It's a very immersive way of teaching. It is an app though so it obviously has its draw backs but a free app. So GREAT JOB team !! Keep up the good work!!

    A fun way to learn a language. There is a good variety of activities including speaking, listening, reading and translating. You can skip a level if you find it too easy. Lots of different subjects are covered so you learn lots of vocabulary. You can win prizes which makes it more interesting, and there is a leader board if you like being competitive. Its brilliant.

    Such a great app! I've looked at a couple of other ones and this one is by far the best and my favourite. I really like how it's playful and nicely mixed up so you don't get bored. Hasn't crashed on me yet. Voice recognition is good, content is good, it's also available for download on cellphones, Windows, Mac and also online and your progress copies over to all them with no delay. Love this app!

    I'm refreshing the Irish I learned 40 yrs ago. Duolingo is structured, well presented and solid. It's not perfect because nothing is and to become fluent requires dialogue, which isn't really supported by current technology at an affordable cost. That's the only reason I don't give it five stars. And it gets an extra half star for promoting a minor language.

  54. Brad Meader-avatar

    Best free language learning app on the market. Period. The app is designed so the learning is concise and in bite sized chunks, meaning that you can dedicate as much time to learning as you have. They also have cool little stories that introduce funny and quirky scenarios that feel refreshing after the main lessons. Just the fact that this much attention and love has gone into a free app is astounding. It can't garner any higher praise from me.

  55. Lo Dancer-avatar

    I'm really enjoying this. Very easy lessons, with pronunciation and grammar. Each sections has multiple levels - you only need to pass the first one to move on to the next, or you can choose to do higher levels of the same section. Great if you either need lots of practice on one, or you want to quickly skip ahead. There are 5 lives - each mistake costs a life, but if you use them up, you can just do some practice quizzes & watch an advert to get more lives, or buy them with the awarded gems.

    I love this app! I am learning 3 languages right now. Latin, Gaelic, and Spanish. I love that there are so many different languages to choose from. Even if you don't pay for duolingo, there is not a ridiculous amount of ads. The lessons are just challenging enough and really help you understand not only the meaning, but the pronunciation of the words!

    it's all good, could've been 5 stars but... when I go to duolingo stories, after I finish answering the last parts it doesn't proceed to the part where it finishes and I complete the story. Even when it does, it takes incredibly long and hopeless, please fix this issue.

  58. Emmanuel B-avatar

    Dark mode is long overdue and the league's should be optional. Interested in learning a language not competing against others. Still a great app with a lot of language options that allow you to gradually learn at your own pace. Could use improvement in sequence though as you learn certain words and phrases before you learn the basics like numbers and colours.

  59. Heather Smith-avatar

    I love everything except how losing hearts by answering incorrectly locks you out unless you buy new hearts. It gives me anxiety to the point where I look things up online sometimes to make sure I don't answer wrong. Failures should be corrected, not penalized. I like the variety of styles of questions, the simple, fun graphics, the encouraging atmosphere, the ability to set tiny goals so if that's all you can do, so you can still feel successful. I'm a slow learner, but I keep improving.

    The lessons are a good mix of new vocab/grammar and repetition to solidify memory. The owl is cute. Achievements are a good motivator to build real habits. I actually think the amount of ads is pretty fair too. The only thing I don't like is the option to watch ads for extra gems. This runs counter to the core incentive of learning.

    Excellent app. I am learning Spanish y voy muy bien. If you're not fully driven to learn a language though it's probably not going to work out for you, the app becomes very boring, the lessons are plentiful and very repetitive, and the side features are much more interesting than the actual learning portion. I'd like to see the lessons have more writing and less of the Multiple choice. Also I find that the introductions are a bit hamfisted, if I didn't already know a bit of Latin I'd be lost.

  62. M S-avatar

    Loving this app to death! 5 stars and kudos to the teams working behind the scenes to make this a hit. Just one question, why can't I access the "Tips" menu for certain languages like Norwegian,Romanian on the app when it is surprisingly present when accessed through the web version? I don't understand the logic behind this and I find no reason to not include the for-mentioned in the app. It wouldn't require a big deal of effort I feel. It is going to be just a simple additon.

    I started using this app ~1.5 weeks ago. I love it! I switched to premium to to get rid of adds so that I was utilizing all of my time as much as possible. However, their free version is really reasonable. It's all the same content, but you can only make 3 mistakes a day before you're kicked off, and there are adds. You can usually click on the words in the question for the answer if you're worried about losing a heart as well. Also, FANTASTIC customer service if you submit feedback!

  64. Linda Pfarr-avatar

    I love this app. It makes learning a new language fun, fast and easy for anyone. I've tried learning on my own, but since starting with this app I have learned so much and feel very accomplished. I love working toward earning achievements and competing against others to raise my XP score. I would recommend this app to everyone.

  65. Hide Me-avatar

    I like it but I need to write more Spanish to exercise the language. A lot of times it asks to write the translation into English which is much easier. It should be more other way around. Also I have been doing it for some weeks and progress is slow as it goes through very basic things yet instead of being a bit more challenging each time

  66. Andres Franco-avatar

    Easy to use and follow. Lessons (tips) are given in a clear and handy format. This app won't learn a language for you, but if you are willing to put in the time and work, it is a very good tool to reach that goal. The free version works GREAT and I'm grateful to Duolingo for making such amazing content available to anyone interested in learning. I highly recommend this app.

  67. Chiara Vuolo-avatar

    I really like this app and its potential, but it really bothers me that it use a really weird an unnatural way of phrasing things. That a native will never use. I recently started the Spanish course, I already know Spanish i just wanted a way for daily practicing it and don't get to rusty, since I don't have many chances of speaking it, and I noticed that duolingo makes you learn sentences that a native will never say. Same happens with Italian and German. It's really a pity. Please improve.

  68. Luke Thompson-avatar

    A great way to learn but needs a little polishing, some of the characters don't have enough pronunciation. And others are a complete stab in the dark but I'm learning Japanese, maybe that language section needs some review. Otherwise it's fantastic.

  69. Leen Mcheik-avatar

    It is a great app really but the thing is that the hearts take too much time to refill and sometimes when i do the practice for a free heart once in does not work another time... I hope this issue is taken into consideration because i would really love to enjoy this app a little longer not suffering with long heart refill

  70. Anja Lesniak-avatar

    Better than Rosetta Stone! Easy to use, fun to learn with, on a simple format which keeps your experience completely interactive, personalized and competitive in a way that helps you stay motivated and entertained! It's exciting and refreshing with cute caricatures, images that follow new words you learn and inspirational messages throughout lessons! Duolingo allows you to learn more than one language as well, while remaining FREE! Free, fun learning for all ages? What more could you want?

  71. Pouya Ghaderi-avatar

    The teaching technics are really good, but I think the written questions should just be in a form that we type in the language we want to learn, because you learn the words in the other questions it is just in written form that you don't see the words so it could be more helpful if these questions be asked for the learning language

  72. Kindra Berglin-avatar

    It's ok, haven't had any interface issues. However, I am tired of every time I complete an entire lesson, boom, I return after a day, maybe two, and I've gotta do more to close out that lesson again! Like, you have to go in everyday to make your work count. That's not even realistic! I can't even see my progress on the leadership board until I complete a lesson? Really! I have to pay 10 lingots to freeze my progress! Y'all are trippin! Uninstalling!

  73. Callum Buxton-avatar

    The mobile app has a fun, game-like interface useful for basics and practicing, but the desktop app is much better for learning the language and has a higher requirement on you spelling/typing the words and not just recognising them from a list. As you move further into a course, an intro/explanation to each section would also be useful, rather than learning by guessing in the earlier levels (i.e. Possesions, Questions etc)

    Good but needs improvements. I wish it would have more support in pronouncing words. I am learning Russian so I would prefer if they could break down the way the word should be said along with the Russian writing. I think it also needs an option where you can slow down the speech because sometimes they say it too fast l.

  75. Daniel Weber-avatar

    Free app with infrequent ads. Slow-paced learning means after 10 minutes, you can put it down for weeks, and easily jump back into it. Game-like challenges provide incentives to resume every day. If you nail about 20 drills in a row, you get an option to skip up to the next level. The next level continues the same words you were drilling before, but adds a few new words. The pace feels slow, but with 10 minutes a day, you can put it down for weeks without losing progress.

  76. Mallory Drees-avatar

    Awesome app! I use it for German, and it actually helps you learn how to pronounce the words too! I would absolutely give it five stars, if it could teach american sign language. I know its a bit of a stretch, but it is a very practical and helpful skill to learn.

  77. HitMarkerMercy-avatar

    Overall very good language learning app! It's helped me learn Russian so far, so that helps! The only complaint I have so far is that it requires me to use my voice to complete certain questions in a lesson. This, in my opinion, should not exist because everyone knows the voice detection mechanic for phones is VERY broken. It causes me to often lose all my hearts, preventing me from getting my full daily lessons in!

    The app is very good and helps a lot, some versions have unlimited lives for free like the version on my laptop. I see no reason in investing when I have unlimited lives on my laptop, it would be nice to have it on the app though as it would allow for me to lounge around whilst doing my daily goals. Besides this it's very good so far and helps teach you effectively.

  79. Josh Crocker-avatar

    amazing app, 2 pc. feedback 1. bug: on lessons where you write down what you hear, and both are in the language you are learning, backspace doesnt work unless you manually select the text box 2. suggestion: end of lesson feedback should be more technical for users who are consistantly completing lessons with few errors. For example in the above game type, successful end of lesson is the english interpretation of what was transcribed but I would rather see correct spelling of the target language

  80. Dale Sutcliffe-avatar

    This app is by no means bad, there are just much better apps available. I started learning Arabic with Duolingo. It was very good as far learning to read the alphabet but not so much with speaking. Too many silly phases that you will never ever use and the pronunciation is questionable at times. Also the Arabic course is quite short and leaves you with very little useable language skills other than being able to read the alphabet.

  81. Amita Lakra-avatar

    One of the bestest app I came across. This app is very easy and fun to use. I had a desire to learn as many languages I can and I would like to say this was my first and the bestest choice for it. It was fun and easy to use. It provides various chapters level by level, stories and chat box too. I can keep my record in the form of streaks and earn crowns to unlock next level. It also contains scoreboard where I can compare my scores with other fellow friends. I'll definitely advice it to new ones

    Really great app and the course structure. But I've been experiencing a drop in network when I'm using the app. Like there is internet connection. But the app says there is no internet connection. So I won't be able to take a class until I restart the app. This issue presents frequently. I don't know if it's only affecting me

    I absoluetly love this app! I've been wanting to learn Polish for years but could never get it to stick. It is really engaging and makes you want to keep going. The only things I would want to be different are a skip option (at certain points if you get an answer wrong it stays there until making you repeat it until you get it right which is incredibly frustrating if you just do not know the answer) I also wish it let you pronounce the words and correct you as needed. Overall an amazing app!

  84. Dalene Wellman-avatar

    This app is fun and interactive. It teaches you to learn the words both verbally and written. It challenges you to actually know what you are saying/writing. The quizzes help inspire you to learn more. I feel the value is truly worth the cost as not only are you learning, but this helps others learn as well. Well done Duolingo. 😊

  85. Garry Ramp-avatar

    This is a great app. I'm trying to learn French and in just a week of 5_10 minutes a day I've learnt so much. It fun and oractical and works in byte size lessons as long or short as you like. My only complaint is that I am dyslexic and have problems typing in the french translations as i mis spell many of the words, and although you can see you were right (in principle) the spelling would mark you wrong. Third isn't a fault, it's just dyslexia. Great app, looking forward to learning more!

  86. Shuchi Katre-avatar

    Love this app. Really interesting and well structured for a beginner, learning a new language. It's fun to learn in the quiz way which is encouraging, as we go on achieving levels and get rewarded. Covers both written and spoken aspects of a language which is really helpful. Happy that I am utilizing my time well with this.

  87. Sabaa Al Hayek-avatar

    There seems to be a problem with the audio it tends to disappear at times and I'll have to get out and renter as well as with the listening feature it seems to not register anything at times,not a big deal though..would be a bit more convenient if letter pronunciation was a more developed feature languages don't tend to even have similar letters at times ,a quick YouTube search would do the trick i suppose,other than that it really encourages you to keep going and makes the learning process fun

  88. Stevie Golding-avatar

    This app is brilliant and I definitely feel like I am learning something, however, I have now invited 4 different people to download the app and learn something themselves but have only been rewarded with a weeks free premium, this wouldn't usually be a problem if it wasn't stated within the app that you will receive more as a reward by inviting more people to play. If this can be at all rectified then the extra star will be given!

  89. Lexy Rohde-avatar

    I love Duolingo, I use it for learning German, and I love how convenient it is. I see a few comments from people questioning how well it would work, or talking about retention, but that's all on yourself - not the app. You won't learn anything if you aren't doing your own study. I'll continue to use Duolingo on my German language journey until I reach fluency. Great app!

  90. Woodland Blaze-avatar

    Good app. Not too many restrictions or ads in the free version. I enjoy "playing " and find myself opening the app way more often than I expected. The only thing I wish it had was a list or dictionary of words that have been introduced so far for me to refer to when I'm not in a lesson. I often am thinking "what was -- again?" But I cant just look it up in the app. I have to write my own as I go. In the app would be way better for on the go.

    The app's got a friendly user interface, duolingo is as nice as described, just that it couldn't live up to my expectations as regarding the language which had me download it in the first place. I really wanted to learn Hausa language along with French. I wish there could be an update that will come up with Hausa language as I'll in the mean time keep myself busy with learning French. Kudos to duolingo.

  92. Dawn Martinez-avatar

    Very good. But format needs to be more instructional. Present format doesn't instruct basics first, as far as sentence structure, verb forms and tenses, etc. I am enjoying this app and learning. But it is confusing and frustrating sometimes because it expects me to know things I've never been seen before.

  93. Jacob Mischel-avatar

    The latest update adds a heart system, that punishes mistakes and turns the app more into a monetized mess. In addition, the latest update wiped out a couple hundred lingots that I had accrued, and replaced them with significantly devalued gems to purchase less than 2 heart refills. I can no longer reccomend this app with the recent addition of hearts to attempt to squeeze more cash out of the userbase.

  94. Dipayan Deb-avatar

    This app is great if you want to learn a foreign language for free. It makes you learn the language with great ease and fun. Infact the way it teaches is really great and you will not be disappointed. Each exercise contains both textual and vocal problems which will help you to improve your text as well as speaking skills in that particular language.

  95. Ani LouiP-avatar

    Everything is good except with one MAJOR problem. Im not sure if I have an outdated version and it says I'm up to date, or what but here is my response. It seems to me like there are two different versions. One with no lives and red lingots, and one, by far less superior version, with lives and blue diamonds. I ended up with one that has lives, which is a problem because I will occasionally make mistakes that I don't really mean. Thank you for your time.

  96. Carene De hoop-avatar

    Tried to do the trail for a week then when I wanted to cancel the service they make it impossible. I unsubscribed through their app and on the web and it says that the cancellation has gone through than the next day I get another message saying I'm still part of the service. This is ridiculous! Why cant I cancel your stupid app???? Very bad service when it comes to complaints and issues! Don't install this app!!

  97. diako kh-avatar

    I like almost everything about it except the fact that you only get 5 chances each day (in the free version) This is a learning app. You are bound to make mistakes and you will probably have more than five mistakes. The web version has unlimited hearts but is very slow to grade each question (up to 30 second each)

    Duolingo's easy access to lessons mimics game play so well that is encourages continuous learning. Sessions are short enough for frequent play between other activities, and the in-game challenges keep me going longer when I have time. I don't know (yet) if Duolingo will be enough for me to actually learn a language, but I no longer have the excuse that learning is boring or that I can't find time.

  100. Rob Rose-avatar

    I have recently started to use duolingo again after a break of a year or so. It is very intuitive to use and picks up on your weak points. The mix of French to English and to French translations makes you think along with having to speak sentences. It works very well for both myself and my wife improving our understanding of the French language on a daily basis. Try it!
