Mi aprendizaje  Dimas Robayo  5 star

He venido aprendiendo inglés en cada una de las prácticas que hago a través de esta aplicación


Great, but.......  Gauri2013  4 star

This app is great. I started with just Spanish because my Spanish teacher recommended it for me because I was failing. Now I have a 92% accuracy rate and now I’m studying German, French and Czech and it’s all because of Duolingo. The only thing I have to say is sometimes when it asks me to type what someone is saying, I type it exactly correct and it says I’m wrong. I’m losing all of my health because it keeps saying that I’m wrong but I’m not. Please fix!!!


One bone to pick...  Flarpdragonz  4 star

I love duolingo, but I wish there were more things in the shop. I keep getting "lingots" for passing levels but the shop still only has the 2 outfits and the 2 extra lessons that I got at the very beginning. I still use the app but I just wish there were more rewards. They continue to enhance the more popular languages but neglect to update languages like Italian. I want the bots in Italian and more bonus skills!!!


Noise issue  Cal469ok  3 star

It’s hard to use this app on the subways or in public transportation of any form because it requires listening and speaking. I realize this is an important part of learning a language. However, from my personal needs the time i would use it most would be in transport and I️ am not the type of person where is your buds. I speak multiple languages and I’ve taken many foreign language courses. But when I got this app I was wanting something I could use on the trains quickly.


Incorrect answers  jobro1356  1 star

I already posted about this once. When I get to plurals it gets hung up on” lo mangio panini” and goes into a loop even though that is the correct answer. I guess my next step is to contact Apple and ask for my 50$ back.

Great but  King10🦊  4 star

Hello, I’m here to say that adding a quick teaching course before you get thrown in would be nice. as a beginner you don’t know much but if you add the teaching session, I won’t be stuck guessing and losing all my health all the time. (Old comment was about the health and how I didn’t like it). Thank you for reading- a happy user


A Fun Language Learning Tool  IsoMirae  5 star

While I think it would be hard to completely master a language using Duolingo alone - I think it is a great accompaniment to your studies. I also appreciate that it is of now free (albeit with more adds). I recommend checking it out :)

Regina Halliwell

Free? Learning  Regina Halliwell  3 star

I wish I could just purchase an app and have it let me use it without any fluff. So many lessons ask questions they haven’t taught the material for, so before I know it I am out of health and can no longer learn. These microtransacting apps are the bane of my existence. This app would be great if it would just do the thing it is purportedly for: learning languages.

CookieMonster1234 (you tube account)

Two problems  CookieMonster1234 (you tube account)  3 star

The only thing wrong with this app is when you choose the words to match the sentence, this first word is always capitalized. So if I don’t know what the first word means, the app gives it away by capitalizing one of the words to choose from. To fix it I’d say just make all the answers lower case. Also, the questions where you have to type out an English response hardly work. I’ll get the answer perfect and it tells me it’s wrong. I’ve been reporting a problem every time this happens but it hasn’t changed. The app is great but it’s got a couple problems.


Great approach to learning Japanese  Tryhardoz  4 star

A good range of vocabulary across the many categories, manageable chunks so one or two lessons a day is easy to fit in. English translation seems to be all American, and so some words and expressions reflect that. So I find many errors are to do with that, even though my understanding of the Japanese is correct


Alex  Alexlees  1 star

Was a great app picked up Spanish really quickly but now it kicks you off for making mistakes in an attempt to monetise it and sell "gems" :( don't update

Elyse spence

Thai?  Elyse spence  5 star

I love this app and my kids love it too. But I have some extended family who’s first language is Thai and I think it would be great if you could teach me Thai as right Now it’s not an option


Duolingo - French  Ami_123  3 star

The voice recognition isn’t very good so when you’re asked to speak and say what is written, it doesn’t recognise your voice. I have a pretty clear accent so I don’t think I am the one to blame on this one! Also, you have to make sure your “health” stays complete (at least one bar) otherwise you can’t continue with a lesson and you have to wait for it to recharge. It would be much better if you just had to restart the lesson again. I paid for this app. I wouldn’t recommend it unless you need to use it offline.


Great except for the ads  Portyhorse  4 star

I love Duolingo because it’s interactive and makes learning fun. I enjoy trying to keep my streak going, and find that a good motivator. The various types of activities are short, so you can easily practice every day without it taking up too much time. I think there could be more grammar teaching/explanation, and I resent the persistent adverts. Otherwise I would have given it a 5 star rating.

Wow what a great app  Jessica😜😎  4 star

This is great why to start learning a new language like me. From not being able to speak French I can speak it pretty well. Une rouge

no I need help

Just got complicated  no I need help  4 star

I’ve been using Duolingo to learn Spanish for around 3 years and find it fabulous. I’m on a 558 day streak but when I wrote something for my profile something inexplicable happened and I can’t open the app! It says my email is already taken, yes, by me!!!!! What can I do to get back? I’m so distressed because I’m 55% fluent and want to finish. I’ve worked too hard to lose it now, help please! Karmel Ho


Maori???  Xx_Udachi_xX  4 star

Please add the Maori language. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼


Inconsistent, doesn’t introduce new words or grammar.  VanuR2  2 star

Review for Duolingo English to Japanese. The biggest gripe is that there’s sometimes no actual teaching or ‘introduction’ to the words or vocab in the lessons. Certain lessons will simply throw you into the lesson with zero knowledge of any of the words or grammar covered. The inconsistency of this app can get infuriating at times, with an initial lesson being very easy suddenly followed by complex sentence structures and translations. If all the lessons consistently covered the vocab (with the helpful picture cards and translation) then everyone would learn a lot faster, rather than guessing half the lesson.


Don't allow your kids to chat in this app  Ivolar  1 star

It is a Great application to learn language but the chat area is not safe for little kids 😱 you know there are weird people everywhere and my daughter so innocent start chatting with someone who start saying not appropriate things for kids 😧 I wish they don't have chat in this application so I will feel more secure for my kids and your kids to use it !!!!!!!!!!!!


This app is great  Vals93  5 star

I start learning English September/2016 when I moved to California. This app is great because will teach you a new language by interaction. Super fun, clean screen and really useful. Highly recommended

Matthew TTC

I love Duolingo  Matthew TTC  5 star

It’s an easy relaxing way and fun way to learn Spanish, German, Japanese, or many other languages. It’s nice to learn without a teacher but people should still get a teacher once they learn a lot of lessons on here


⚠️RED⚠️  Bossestgameeverboss  1 star

I take french. This app is very wrong in most cases to what is actually the right answer. You might even get it wrong for not having an explanation mark. Some questions are just completely wrong. Really upset with this app. Hope to see some updates.

Bonnies biggest fan

Needs More Languages  Bonnies biggest fan  5 star

This is a very great app for people like me who are just starting to jump into learning different languages. But languages I would want to learn such as specifically latin American Spanish because it is not very likely I will ever have to use Spanish from Spain living in the US throughout my whole lifetime. Theres no Egyptian either. It needs multiple teams working on tons of languages not just a team working on one. As it seems at least. Also you can not really expect students like me to understand how people from Greece write the modern alphabet. You should update it and teach us how to use Greek letters and grammar before the rest of the language. I’m going to have to buy a greek grammar book. I just found out myself. To write letters from a foreign alphabet you need to add the language to your keyboard in settings and it will automatically change to that when you go on to the app. The app freezes every single time I ask a long question.


Duolingo súper  motuki  4 star

Es una excelente aplicación...


Would be better with Arabic  soccerchic376  4 star

I would appreciate it if this app includes lessons to become fluent in Arabic.


I am tall.  WesselsAlex  1 star

Great app except that it messes up a lot. I have tested out of many of the Spanish lessons, but I am stuck on the Size test because it is saying I am not inputting the correct answers. However I am typing exactly what it shows. I am tall, I am short. The shirt is short. All of these have made it so I can’t get past this lesson, and I’ll have to delete the app.

Chinese letters

Excellent  Chinese letters  5 star

This is one amazing program! There are a few flaws; words that have not yet been introduced being used in phrases, however it is truly a learning experience and gives the opportunity to re-do when wrong. Thank you so much! I will write in French in another year to thank you! I tap into it many times a day and redo what I’ve completed to fortify my brain. It is such an amazing program! I am on a low fixed income but dream that I will win a trip to France to try out my skills. What a beautiful language and you are beautiful for giving me this opportunity.
