It's good, I need it for my family in a Spanish country but there was a problem. It said "La Niña" and I wrote "The girl" and in some other ones, IT DIDNT WORK! So could you people please fix that, Thanks!
PS, Great app! 🌸🌷🦄😁😁🤜🏽🤛🏽
Freemium Isn't Free
By Jacob Poirier
What I initially loved about this app is that it made learning a language totally free. Now, with this new update, it seems they're gradually commericializing more and more aspects of it. Sad.
New version requires payments, even though the app image says it is all free.
What a rip off!! I had the old app on my phone
Now they have "improved" it by asking for $. That would not be a problem if app declared that it was an 'in app purchase'. The whole app is a waste of time now. Keeps telling me I am out of 'health', and the app is locked until I pay ransom. I'd rather go elsewhere, where the app developers were honest!
Your killing it Duolingo
Literally killing it, before the update you were the best by far but after this 5 health bar system, which allows minutes of progress and the only option to continue is by paying 5 dollars for another 10 bars, just sends you from free education to rip off education
I used Duolingo daily for the fast 6 month, I hope , I understand the need for money, we all do, add option of a monthly fee such as 7 dollars and I would happily pay, I believe most will feel the same.
Hope to meet on better terms
Very disappointed by new update
Are used to tell everybody about this app… And having a love languages this app was right up my alley. But this new update has disappointed me greatly. I find it absolutely ridiculous that you only get five chances at a wrong answer. And furthermore, you have to wait five hours for one health bar refill?????? That is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. This used to be a great app, but I think they are straying away for free language learning.
Good job ruining an app that I thought couldn't be ruined. I used to love using Duolingo to brush up on my Spanish or try out European languages, but now the interface is such a hassle and a trap for in-app purchases. These new features are such a disappointment.
What in the world happened to this app?
Used to love Duolingo. Haven't used it in a while, but wanted to brush up on my French. Started thru a lesson and chose an answer (I know it was the correct one b/c the previous screens had told me I was correct). It said I was wrong and would not go to the next question. I repeatedly chose the correct answer, it used up all my "health" (what the heck is that??) and said I had to use 450 lingots to try again. It promptly consumed all those by continuing to tell me the correct answer was wrong. Then locked me out for 4hrs 46 min. Is this Candy Crush or a learning app? Deleted!!

I have been using the old version of Duolingo to learn Italian for over a year. I was doing great and enjoyed the daily lessons. Recently, Duolingo drastically changed the once free app for financial gain and made the learning process very frustrating. My advise, DO NOT get this app, but instead used the Duolingo website which is still on the old version. I am hoping to complete all the Italian lessons before they change the website. Duolingo, if you read this, what a mess you've made of a good thing!!!

Great so far, but is possible you can add more languages, such as japanese? I've been meaning to learn japanese but havent yet found an app. Possible you can be that app????
Would be great if it weren't for the health bar
First of all, I love learning French on this app it's very convenient. How ever, running out of health points is incredibly frustrating!!! It causes me to never finish a lesson cause I ALWAYS have to wait for more health. And I am NOT paying 5 dollars for more. Get rid of the health points and keep it how it used to be, and I will give it 5 stars.
Great app for learning Spanish
Fun gamified way to learn Spanish. Especially if you are starting from scratch
Awful health feature update
I have been a user of Duolingo for quite some time, however, with this new update where you can only complete so many lessons before your health runs out, I have been extremely disappointed. I used to be able to do so many lessons a days and it was extremely helpful. Now with this new health feature, I can only do so many lessons before it asks me to refill by either practicing or buying credits. I am truly disappointed and I have to say that I will be switching to Rosetta Stone. It was good while it lasted DuoLingo, will miss you.
