I’m still a newbie but am loving my daily Spanish and Russian lessons! Any chance of adding Latin as an option? I’d love to learn Latin!
You should have lives and you should let everyone have unlimited so we can learn even more. I think it’s very stupid to have lives cause I need to learn French for homework and I always run out of lives. I really suggest you get rid of the lives thanks
This app is a great and fun way to practice your vocabulary for a given language. Combine this regularly with real communication practice (which is best done with classes or groups) and you will strengthen your comprehension of a foreign language!
Definitely needs more languages! Why is there Swahili and Turkish but there is no Arabic!! Like come on! Please can u add Arabic?
Duolingo is teaching me 3 languages at once and it’s so engaging and somehow fun that you want to keep going. It even has a placement test if you already know some things about a language, so you don’t have to go through the boring process of reteaching a part of a language. I love it highly recommend.👍🏾👍🏾
This is really an amazing app and I strongly suggest everyone use it but the new update isn’t good. It’s new and it works but I just like the old duolingo better. I don’t like the new “health” concept but otherwise a very good app.
Not working anymore.
As a former Instructional Designer, I realize that learners need constant, and relevant practice exercises to learn any new skill. I have noticed that the practice portions of each lesson comprise the majority of the lesson. I always spent the majority of my development time on exercises and quizzes because I believe the mind must be challenged in order to retain new information. I really like the tips section of each new subject. It gives the student the technical information they need before they start practicing. There is also an element of competition and that helps motivate the student in a fun way (similar to online games). It is wonderful to know that anyone (including those of limited means) can learn a new language thanks to you. Keep up the good work!
Everything about the program is great, the languages and learning process even how they put the ads in the free version so they’re not crazy obnoxious or in your face with ads but it’s reasonable. I just wish there were more obtains on the app to practice like on the site. The site you can practice reading and vocabulary that you haven’t refreshed for a while and more. I also with there was a way for me to practice translating vs understand because I’m actually advanced on listening but not speaking/translating. So it would be great to add a practice feature for that specifically.
I was skeptical of Duolingo when I downloaded it. How could something so useful be free? Especially when the Rosetta Stone app is about $100/year after a short trial. I kept waiting to find the fine print, but it never happened. You can upgrade, of course, but it’s completely unnecessary to learn a language. There are basically no restrictions on how much you can study in a day or how many languages you can learn. It’s easy, fun, and comprehensive. The lessons build vocabulary, grammar, and confidence. I previously purchased a Rosetta Stone computer series which has its advantages, but I actually prefer Duolingo. You can study anywhere, and the direct translations make it easier for me to connect with the material, especially for more elusive concepts such as “sometimes.”
Great way to learn Spanish good app
Great app design but there are two major problems with the Japanese lessons: 1) ん is read as “m” where it should be “n” most of the time. This will really hurt new learners and their pronunciation. 2) Incorrect sound files play for kanji when selected or read by the app. Technically correct alternate pronunciations but incorrect in the context of the lessons. This makes it impossible to learn new words. Other things that bug me are the gem rewards which seem useless and the health system which is a deterrent for learning. Also, it’s unclear if progressing in lessons (more crowns) makes it harder or introduces new vocabulary. Should I max out one class before moving on? No guide provided at all. Also, $10 a month just to remove ads is INSANE. Once maybe but not recurring.
This use to be a brilliant app but now it is a money grab of ads and gimmick gems and health scores that get in the way of it original purpose- to learn
This health bar system ruined the app
See my title
Been @ this app for a few months now and have learned a lot, only recently the app seems to have changed to create more frustration. Typos are not corrected anymore, tiny mistakes (accents) cost lives - seems to be geared towards making you spend more money, which is annoying when it badges itself as a fun free learning app. Otherwise content and structure of learning is strong.
I used to love this app as I was learning Swedish. But these updates are just useless and disappointing. Now I have to have a basic understanding of Finnish in three months and none of the major language learning apps offer that particular language. Never mind the fact that you have pretty much all the other Scandinavian languages 😅 Stop wasting time adding useless languages like Klingon and High Valyrian and take advantage of putting useful languages that no one else offers. Miss the days when this app was serious about helping those who genuinely want to learn languages for actual real benefit. Now it’s just a money-grabber and waste of storage...
This is one of my favourite apps but could you please make an update so that you can play offline?
I think this is a really good app. One issue I’d like you to fix is that my health doesn’t regenerate. I waited overnight and in the morning I still had zero..? Please fix this as I don’t always have internet, so I can’t watch ads or practice. Other then that I’m quite impressed with the app.👍🏼
I enjoy this app as a Russian learner. The UI is well-designed and the app is enjoyable. I would also like to see support for Apple Pencil. Is it not an established fact that we learn better when we write things down? ;-) It would also be great to have voice recognition so that speaking skills can be improved.
Even if you tell the app that you cannot speak or listen, it will still give you questions that require listening or speaking. I suggest having an option in the settings that would allow users to turn off audio questions. I’m tired of HAVING to get questions wrong and memorizing the answer for when it pops back up. Tapping, “I can’t listen right now,” or whatever, clearly doesn’t work!
Why does it keep saying that my email address is invalid, it won’t let me log in, and this is not the first maw function that I have had.
Not an end to itself. Most languages on Duolingo do not provide supplementary content for concepts that do not reveal themselves through audio and your inevitable, repeatitive failure at them. So buy a grammar book as well or assume their is an app glitch when you’re faced with the French reflexive.....
Duolingo is a every entertaining, engaging way to learn a language. The recent updates seem to give just the right amount of repetition to solidify the information that has been presented. I love Duolingo!
Duolingo is still a fine, free language app but I feel like it’s starting to rest on its laurels. For example, if it can have back and forth “conversations”, what it refers to as bots, in some languages, why not have them in all languages? That’s kind of showing favoritism especially if a person pays for the Pro version. Also, please stop the whistling mascot touting the virtues of Duolingo! You’re awesome, we get it. But I don’t want to have to see the mascot whistling across the screen while I wait for the x to get rid of it TWICE every time I open the lesson for the day. It was charming once, but that’s enough. I will say again that it is a nice app, but, come on developers, let’s step it up a bit. It’s not like there aren’t a lot of other smart folks out there who couldn’t take your place if you let them by staying stagnant.
You’ll come across a screen where after entering the correct response , you are shown you’re incorrect. I then report the error, but lose health in the process AND have to see this screen again and lose more health. Otherwise a nice program.
Doing this everyday can really teach you a different launguage
Awesome In learning new languages the best ever!
Seriously, now you have eliminated the treasure boxes where we obtained gems, in favour of an asinine spinning wheel. Ridiculous, bring back the treasure boxes, they were the only reason I continued to use this app. This app has gone downhill all the time, it used to be a very good language learning tool. Now it is terrible, it is clear the goal is not to encourage learning, but to get people to go ad free. This app is not worth it at all!
Latest update turned my iPhone screen black and no taps, swipes, clicks or reboots gets you anywhere.
