Addictive and challenging. I have been impressed with how much I can learn, even without grammar explanations. The sentences (with translations) build up and if you go in order you can learn a lot. I came in knowing quite a bit of vocabulary but little grammar, so had to go back to earlier lessons and catch up, but it was possible and Duolingo is quite strict! I really like the way the content is specific to the language. I am learning Danish and it includes Danish cultural and geographic detail. This is not a cookie-cutter program teaching the same content for each language. (I wasn’t however thrilled with the lessons on boy/girlfriends moving in together, etc. Despite the initial email that “my child” was using the app.) Some of the English translations are a bit forced, but I have decided it is a useful feature, as that reinforces the grammar differences and is needed for translating exactly what the app wants into the target language. I supplement the app with reading/listening to materials without translation, as you can only get so far with translating, but you can learn a lot with words in context, and that is a huge benefit to the approach here. Other programs drill you on individual vocabulary words building up to a sentence. Duolingo gives you sentences with popup translations that let you learn how the word is used at the same time. Much faster. And much more variety. I am always surprised by new variations I haven’t heard before. Quite realistic!

AMAZING, but.... I gotta say this app is amazing! It just has some issues. One, the speaking part. This is a little tricky. Like, I can’t always make one voice! My voice at random times just goes high, so it’s a problem. 😕 Two, the store. The store is not that well. Why? I’m like a starter and really good at my German (I’m learning it) but I have EVERYTHING IN THE SHOP! I have all the outfits. I think you can improve it by, like, new outfits every week! That would be amazing! Three, gems. Gems are amazing but what if you made coins. That could also help the store. Stuff that costs coins and some that cost gems! Simple really. Four, the bird. I still love the bird but I think if you complete a whole language, like German, you could get there National animal! I don’t know why that is something I want but I do. ;-; Five, another speaking one, wow, it speaking a little for you. Here’s the thing. If it speaks a little for you, how will you learn to say it!? This has happened to me. It’s something I’m not a fan of much, I’d rather say a while phrase then have it say something for me. Other then all that the app is quite something. Well I have nothing else to say except for, don’t let your dog lick you a million times on your face while learning on this app, and ever accept if there trying to wake you up or your doing nothing. - ꧁ Primrose Sings ꧂

I am very grateful !. J’adore Duolingo, I never had the confidence to learn a language before using this app. I always scoffed it off as too much work. You guys really make it fun. It’s like playing a game! As you developers already know, the streak keeps many people committed to the app. I’ve kept my streak alive 150 days twice! I’m not dropping the flame this time though. My only complaint is that I wish bots weren’t in the leagues so much. I assume they are there to give people a more competitive feel that perhaps isn’t quite there with all the real users on the app? I’m not sure, I’ve tried to understand the reason, but alas it is what it is. I am learning how to read and pronounce quite a bit in French! That is the main thing I really get from this though. And that is really something I am genuinely grateful for. I have even been practicing thinking in French and although I cannot understand every day French tongue out in the real world yet, I can differentiate many words that are said and that’s cool too, quite an improvement! That is all thanks to you wonderful folks. I appreciate the people behind Duolingo because they are providing such an amazingly useful resource for free!! I do get the premium membership because I love it so much. I’m on my second year with this app and can’t wait to see it evolve. 🥰Merci beaucoup, Duolingo et au revoir !

¡Me encanta Duolingo! Pero ... I have been using Duolingo for over a year now (462 day streak to toot my own horn hehe), and I can honestly say it’s a great tool for me to help refresh my Spanish skills! However, I do think there’s room for improvement. I wish the community chat rooms were available in app and not just by desktop! Also a lot of native translations that are often taught in curriculum are marked incorrect and that can be frustrating when you know for a fact that you are not wrong! Also, a lot of times the characters will speak out sentences to you but the phrases will be distorted causing you to be marked incorrect which is also very frustrating. One thing I do love is the stories they offer and the inclusion they add to try and incorporate real life situations in a easy to digest way! I also wish that a lot of the functions weren’t hidden behind a pay wall (understandable as the app is free so they need the ads) but only being able to have access to them once in every blue moon after you’ve completed hundreds of lessons isn't very convincing for people to buy that version as it is frustrating for people who want to learn who could use the resources! Overall it is a very good app if you want to be able to read a language on paper. As for real world application, I say this tool is just one of many you should be incorporating into your own method of learning!

Sync your programs!!. I doubt the devs care, but as fun as Duolingo is, it’s really annoying that I can’t fluidly switch between phone and computer. The quests on the programs are completely different, and if I want to make progress towards a friend quest, I *have* to use phone because they don’t show u on computer. But I would rather have access to a mouse and full keyboard. If you really want it to be a phone app that much, shut down the website. Or keep the website and sync it properly. Also, I HATE the 90% and perfect quests. They don’t inspire me to try harder. They just inspire me to stop after I’ve gotten more than one wrong. Either stop and start over or just stop for the day until the quests reload. When it’s one, it’s fine, but when it’s like… 3 perfect lessons for 3 gems? Not worth it, and since I know there’s no reward already, there’s no point in getting on. I would recommend lower stakes (80%) but offer additional rewards (even only sometimes) for the 90% and perfect. Otherwise, you’re basically sending the message that you’re a failure if you’re not perfect. Well nobody is, including you, or you would sync your phone app to the computer program. It would also be nice to know which lessons actually have speaking items in them. It’s really annoying to have a quest to complete 12 speaking items and have to complete 5 lessons just to get 1. This is another thing that sometimes inspires me to not bother, though it’s not as bad as the literal quest for perfection.

This app is so bueno!. I have been using Duolingo for a while now, and recently got into it again after forgetting to practice for a while. I love being able to have a little widget on my home and lock screens to remind me to practice. I can’t remember exactly how long my best streak was, but it was pretty high. I’m currently at an 8 day streak, and I’m excited to finish my course. It’s going to be fun to talk to my friends and then just randomly start speaking Spanish to confuse them. I’m having so much fun, and for a while now, I’ll sometimes say “buenas noches” instead of good night. And I loved going up to my 6th grade teachers and just saying, “Hola. ¿Cómo estás?” And seeing how they responded. Some would reply with “muy bien” and others would say they didn’t understand. Most of the time the conversation would morph into them just having to translate certain parts, as I’m not a fluent or professional Spanish speaker, but it was still fun nonetheless. I love the app, but an idea that I would have is an easy-to-find tutorial for harder aspects of the language you’re learning, because I still to this day can’t roll my Rs whatsoever. Overall it’s a great way for someone like me who has been diagnosed with ADHD and Autism, as well as anyone else who wants to learn a new language. Thanks for reading, hopefully this gave you some good information on my experience with Duolingo, and, of course, adios amigo y amiga!

This is fantastic!. I’ve always procrastinated learning the languages in which I wish to be fluent due to not having the time or money to pursue the interest, and Duo has created a fun way for me to learn with quick lessons that fit into my schedule, while making it free to pursue the interest. The premium version comes with even more features that I feel are valuable enough for the cost. This app works very well for my style of learning, and you begin with very basic sentences, learning slightly more advanced structures and content as you progress. I cannot stress this enough for newcomers: the comment section under each example sentence is a GOLD MINE of a learning opportunity. If you feel you do not understand what is being presented, check the comments and there is likely someone asking the question you have and someone else has already presented a very helpful explanation. *A note to the developers in regards to the preceding paragraph: in the few circumstances where I have a question that hasn’t yet been asked, or if I see a question that I feel confident I could answer, I would love to have the ability to add a comment directly from the app for iPad or iPhone without having to retry that lesson on the website to comment. I feel it is the only thing lacking from an otherwise amazing learning tool. Please, please, PLEASE add this for us!

Please read before you get it. If you, like me, knew and loved old duolingo of the duolingo tree, i need to tell you something. that is gone. they made something new called the “learning path”. look it up if you want to know more. i’m not here to waste your time on that, but what i will tell you is that it is very unhelpful and discouraging to see. i have had duolingo for a number of years now and LOVED it, am a member of the streak society, and a “super plus member”. i LOVED duolingo. not anymore, and quite frankly, i am very tempted to delete it, but i have learned SO MUCH AND I STILL HAVE HOPE. Duolingo!!! Please change the update back!!!I am very disappointed because you are getting so much feedback not only from me, but THOUSANDS of other unhappy customers! i had “super plus” and loved it, it was so worth it, but now, look what your amazing app has come to. i just unsubscribed a few days ago. it simply is no longer worth it. Please reach out as i really do love duolingo and want to see it do well, but i want Before the update, i was steadily learning future tense etc, and now i am stuck not being able to pick what i am working on, on an endless “path” that feels like i’m making no progress at all, which i’m not. Duolingo, this is seriously not good. this is the opposite of your goal, which is to help people learn. i feel like i’m LOSING my skills with italian, and it’s really sad because i love it.

I like it a lot, and it can get better. I really like duo lingo and have used it to start learning new languages as well as to maintain ones I’ve learned in the past. I’m sure there are other programs out there that are better for more in-depth and possibly faster learning curves. My “issues” with duo lingo come from it seeming like they spend more time and effort on the little animations than helpful aspects of learning. They used to have this audio learn along thing where there are a few hosts walking you through an experience and you learn the phrases they use to get around and whatnot. THAT was helpful! You learn very useful phrases and since it feels like you’re speaking along with them it sticks better. They took that away for whatever reason even though a bunch of people online loved it (you can find Reddit threads and stuff). Duo lingo sometimes teaches some really dumb phrases when it should be oriented to often used /helpful things while visiting a place (ex: “duo likes to surf” vs “where is the restroom?”). I’m also annoyed that it’s taken them years to include more than just Swahili for African languages. And even now there’s only like maybe 3 MAX. Do y’all know how many of us are trying to learn Twi or Yoruba or one of the thousands going on there? The diaspora is HUGE and a lot of us are searching high and low to learn our homeland languages. But you have Dothraki and other made up languages 🤨🙄

Highly recommend. I pay for the SUPER service and I feel like it is worth it. I have a friend who was using the free service and she felt like sometimes she would make a mistake and the quizzes to get the heart back made it more discouraging. With the paid service you can make as many mistakes as you want and you just repeat the question. You do fly through it a lot faster so if you don’t feel like you have the words down you have to force yourself to do the review sections. I like that I have more control with what I’m learning and how frequently I can retake a section. I am currently learning German and Spanish. I took Spanish in school but started it from the beginning because I wanted to see i it would teach. You do have the ability to take a placement test to skip ahead though. In school we learned a lot of nouns adjectives and verbs but never really practiced harder sentence structures other than I go swimming. She goes swimming. We are starting to do the harder sentences now in the end of section 2. German is at a really good pace too. I’m taking it a bit slower because I have no prior knowledge. I’m on section 1 rookie unit 3 and I’m only moving forward when I feel like I know the last sections words. My husband knows German and he is happy that I’m not only speaking German but I’m also pronouncing words properly

I love the setup and purpose of why this app exists, some tweaks and I think it could be amazing. I just started to use this app again even though I’ve had an account since 2016. I’ve taken some courses in high school and college for Spanish which helps in the language learning process; most is just refreshing with the language of Spanish. I can’t provide to much input as to whether it will help you become fluent or not because I’m still on the beginning stages of the lessons. However I am enjoying my time with it and hopefully it does help me get to where I would like to be which is a fluent Spanish speaker. I rated four stars because going through the activities I’ve noticed that when it tells you to repeat the sentence the audio seems to lag on the last word and take a little while to register that you got it correct. Everything else is great, I like that if you get something wrong you can go to the discussion section where other users have had the same issues as yourself which has helped me understand errors so I don’t make the same mistake next time. Even after viewing the comment sections duolingo itself gives its own tip by using an example to help you remember and avoid the mistake you made for the future. I would highly recommend the app for learning a language but like I said previously I’m not sure if it will help you become fluent or not. Fix the audio issues of it lagging for a few seconds and I’d gladly rate five stars!!!

Best Language App EVER!!! 5 STARS!!. I was planning on traveling to Europe and going to Italy. Because, it’s my dream! So, I was looking around for an app that I could learn Italian on and I found Babbel and I downloaded it. Let’s just say it was not the best experience. I don’t want to hate on an app that was hard to make so that’s all I’m gonna say. After some research I found Duolingo and I downloaded it to try it out. It was AMAZING! There are little lesson reviews on the side and fun little characters. There are so many languages to learn and so many fun things to do! You join leagues and try to make it up the leagues and that gets me going on the app. I highly recommend this app if you want to have fun learning a new language! There’s only one thing I would change (and it might be a little greedy) the heart situation. I’m sure you’ve gotten many people hating on how you lose hearts so I’m not gonna be that person because it’s an amazing app. But, for fairness, I don’t think you should lose hearts every time you make a mistake. Or at least, you gain hearts more often by getting a perfect lesson or something. Other than that, this is my go to language app. So, if your looking for a fun game with not just learning a little competing and fun I would highly recommend you get this app!! Ps- I would love if you guys responded to my review 🫶🏼 Thank you!

New smaller word boxes TOO SMALL. Since the recent update (late April 2018), on my iPad Pro DuoLingo app, the word boxes and the type within them, which one taps to put together a translated sentence, are frequently appearing much smaller than the helpful size they consistently were before. Sometimes they appear in the original size, but more often now, even with a short sentence where there is no problem fitting them on the page, they are very small. Harder to read, and harder to accurately select. And I have small hands/fingers. I lost several “health” bars and had to stop my lesson sooner than in the past, because I was selecting at the speed I always have, and realized I could not have the confidence I had grown accustomed to, that when I think I have touched a word box, it is selected. So my learning process is slowed not because I am selecting the incorrect word and losing health, but that I have to stop and check more diligently to make sure the box I tapped (or tried to, but apparently did not hit the now very small “sweet spot” on it which selects it), actually shows up in the answer box. This was NEVER an issue before the change in word-box size. Please make them, if not as large as they have been previously, larger than they are after this recent “upgrade”. Very annoying in an otherwise wonderful app...you folks say you want to make learning easy, and my feedback is that this tiny type in close-together boxes, is an impediment to learning. Thank you.

why are the motivational messages mean?. 5 stars for visibility. 3 star app. duolingo is pretty ok for being free. the japanese course is missing some things, like speaking exercises and stories. i'd also like to be able to practice kana and kanji without having it go through a randomizer first. why can't i choose what i want to practice when i've finished all the practices to fill up the bar? none of those things are integral to the learning experience, but it's a real shame how far japanese is behind the other courses i've tried before (spanish, swedish, german). my actual least favorite part of duolingo is the mean messages i receive almost every day from the girl with purple hair. i think they're trying to write a tsundere, but instead she's just a huge jerk. her "motivational" message today is "it'd be a bummer to lose that streak. just saying." which is such a rude and unnecessary thing to say. she's shaming me for not finishing my daily lesson before 8AM (yes, i get these messages before 8AM daily). i wish i could just get messages from the other characters, the little boy and girl, the older characters, and the bear all send perfectly fine messages. i'm just really getting sick of having to put up with passive aggressive "encouragement" from the developers at duolingo in order to get my daily lesson reminders. please, i don't want to put up with that purple haired jerk anymore.

Let me start by saying I NEVER review apps. This app I have had for a while. And I try to use it everyday. It can be pretty disappointing to see that you have missed a lesson and now you don’t have a true streak anymore. If you truly love language and learning it then this app is all you need. Please do yourself a favor and pay for the plus services. I have used this app for about 4 or 5 months and once I upgraded to the Plus option I really saw my learning time go up a lot faster. Let me stop here and say this is not an advertisement trying to sell you the app, just a VERY satisfied customer. Now it’s currently December of 2020. Bobby Shmurda will be released from prison soon and if you run into el chapo you should know some Spanish. Recently there were some changes to the app that exponentially improved the feel of the quality of service immediately and it was such an amazing well thought out addition that I believe it alone could very much help you to learn 90% more than anything else on the app can. What I am referring to is the newly added voice recorder that lets you hear your vocal lessons so you can hear and compare your voice to what you should be hearing. And for people like me who have a very hard time hearing anything, (And I know my ducking kids inherited it 🤟🏽🙃) This new addition to the app makes it so much easier to hear what you are doing.

Good app! ...but needs work!. Great free app, very helpful and useful in learning new or refining old languages. However, it still needs work in my opinion. I am learning Spanish and I have learned a lot more than I already knew in a couple days... but there are times when using a proper word is necessary to succeed and move on, but I have to restart over and over again later (after practicing, to get health to play) ...because I picked the right term but wrong specific word and no explanation is given as to why. I.E: Yo (means I) has to be followed with an o in the use of words like como (eat) or bebo (drink) instead of come/comen/comes or bebe/beben/bebes (as I learned through searching), but no explanation is given as to why. It’s frustrating and infuriating. This needs to be explained and taught for proper teaching of other languages. Also, why does the asterisk above certain Spanish words apply but not on others? Learn it all or don’t even try I say! Finally, turn down the need for health as often, or turn up the regeneration rate. I read it was said that they are trying to make learning free. So do it more, please. Stop making me practice over and over again just to get 1 bar of health (works on only 1 mistake before failing) and have 1 measly chance at succeeding just to have to quit, practice, and start ALL OVER AGAIN; only to fail because I don’t understand what I did wrong! The ads are bad enough and should be sufficient... but then there’s this! Please fix!

Der, Die, Das. I love this app and I am learning a lot. I’m taking the German one. In your tips you say when you want to learn the noun. put the der, die, or das with it. however in your matching quizzes you do not put the der, die, or das with it. it would make it much easier to learn the gender of the nouns if the der, die or , das was put with the noun in the matching quizzes. Thank you I went to the word list and once again there are no genders with the nouns. English only has two genders while German has three it would make it much easier to learn the nouns if the genders were included in the matching list and in the word list. Thank you I do like the app. OK it will not let me write a second Review so I will add to the first and hope that it gets seen. I am currently in the Explorer tier at the end of the sixth set and the beginning of the seventh set. At the beginning of each month I like to go back to the first round, called rookie to just review things and to brush up on wording and the die, Der, DOS, that kind of thing. today I went to the rookie tier To do my review, and in the second sept under personalized practice I was given a lesson from a much more advanced set than I had even seen. this was very disturbing to me, and used up all of my hearts at the very beginning of my practice of my German.I think this is a very wrong thing to do because it took me out of any familiar words or sentence structure I was trying to reinforce.

Excellent App, but could use more Languages!. I’ve been using Duolingo for a while now to practice my French, and in the time I have had the app I have tried out several other languages too (including Spanish, Russian, German, Klingon, etc.). The games make learning fun and the teaching style helps keep the terms and sentence structures ingrained in my memory very well! My only request/hope for this app (not a complaint, I love the app) is that while I appreciate the inclusion of fictional languages like High Valyrian and Klingon, I would like for there to be more significant languages to be added to Duolingo’s roster of classes as well. Widely-spoken languages like Arabic and Bengali are noticeably absent on the course list (for English-speakers, not sure about others), as well as Finnish, which is a little strange because Norwegian, Swedish, and Danish are all present. Personally, as someone whose family comes from the western Balkans, I would love to see a language course on Serbo-Croatian, since it is a difficult language that I believe Duolingo would be an excellent tool to help me to become better at it. Recently, Hawaiian and Navajo were added to the roster, which excites me and makes me hope for these languages to be added sometime in the future as well. Overall, I love the app and will continue using it to study foreign languages! I look forward to seeing more language courses added in future updates! 👍

Room for improvement …. I’ve been using Duolingo since 2014 and I have been able to learn a few languages to an advanced enough level that I can comfortably credit Duolingo as one of the primary reasons for my success in learning said languages. Now, there are quite a few things that irk me about the app, particularly, the free versions bombardment of ads over the years and a subpar system of hearts which deter learning instead of encourage you. The introduction of new languages to learn has been rather slow but I have been pleased with the fact that Duolingo has made it known that they will continue to introduce new courses as they go. Another annoyance is that I seem to be missing a leaderboard now simply due to the fact that I traveled to a certain region and now I’m unable to access certain features of the app, like the leaderboard as I mentioned prior. This is extremely annoying as I find encouragement through competition, the leaderboard is a feature I have adored since it’s introduction in the app. I’ve yet to contact support regarding why this is so but hopefully the Duolingo support team can resolve this for me and if not then I will consider canceling my family plan. All in all, it’s a great app that can greatly benefit your language learning journey but there’s just a few spots that need polishing for this app to even be worthy of asking you for a paid subscription. Thank you.

I love this app, but…. I am still in the beginning stages of learning Spanish and am in love with this app. The simple approach and repetition of words is super helpful. I do have a few issues with the learning style though. 1.) I like the fact that repetition is used to help with memorization, but it is just SO SLOW. Like I’ve been learning about the family and it’s vocabulary for what feels like years (47 day streak). I just wish that some more key concepts would be introduced at a quicker pace. I would like to learn some of the exceptions and tenses used in Spanish quicker so that I can use Spanish more in my day to day life. 2.) The talkback feature in this app is straight up garbage. You can’t convince me any differently. I can say complete gibberish into the mic or just say one of the 7 words given and it counts it as correct. Duolingo definitely needs an update in that aspect of the app. If they can change this, it would be MILES better and would help for the overall credibility over other language learning programs. 3.) Why is the LGBTQIA+ being forced upon me as a user? Almost every other exercise that I do involves something to do with a gay couple or a liking of another person of the same gender. I’m not a hater of this community, but would rather not have this forced upon me as a user. Overall, I’m very grateful for this app, but these things could be changed about the app.

It’s a good app!. This is some reasons i gave this app 4 stars only. I did not want to put 5 because of some stuff so let me tell you. This app is so amazing i would download it if i were you but, i am trying to learn french because of friends.. but it does not really teach me french language. All it kinda wants me to do is pick the right french word or, something else like that. It doesn’t seam to make me remember all the words. So i give this app a 4. No hate to this app because they are trying there BEST to help people learn new languages! Its really a great app but also, it wants you to pay a lot for a month I’m pretty sure to get no ads and level up quicker. Almost every app has a monthly subscription witch is kinda unfair. People are losing there jobs during this moment of Covid-19 so they won’t be able to pay that much for a month or however much it costs. I would say who would want to level up fast? It would not be fun because its going fast and you really learn anything and, its kinda cheating as what i think. The no ads.. well thats kinda “OK” but i don’t know about it.. the ads are kinda great although, they are about the Duolingo subscriptions. The ads are actually short though so i would not mind the ads because i don’t want to pay a monthly subscription. So i give this a 4 i guess but it’s actually good app and i think you should download it if you like! There is so many amazing languages out there on Duolingo. Thanks for reading my review! - Customer <3

Great app, but one problem!. I have been using Duolingo to learn French for a little while now. If you really want to be good at it I suggest working over and over on the basics 1 and mastering it, and continuing to work on it even after mastering it until you know the basics 1 words 100%, which is what I did. It’s a lot better to know the words than to rush through and not actually be able to remember them. One thing is, I have started the “phrases” section. Usually when you start a new section and it gives you words you haven’t seen yet, they will put a dotted line under it where you can see what it means and then eventually remember it. However on some new words it doesn’t give me the meaning and asks me to translate anyway. Since I don’t know the meaning of the word because I’ve never seen it I get it wrong and lose my health. I have used this app a long time ago to learn Italian (which I’ve since stopped) and it would always give me the meaning of the word, multiple times even. It’s just annoying to me that I have to lose my health because I don’t know the meaning of a new word. It’s not too much of a problem that I will delete the app, but something that could be fixed. I recommend using the computer version of duolingo for learning new words and phrases, and just using the app for strengthening your skills. Overall though this app is great!

Excellent learning tool, Needs more community interaction. I have tried many language learning applications, but Duolingo is by far my favorite. Why? Well first, this review is based on the subbed version. I subbed immediately so I cannot speak for the unsubbed version. Now, this is why it is my favorite app. I am to unit 3. The lessons I have encountered have been the best I have used for memorization. I will cover pronunciation in a moment, though. Now listen, it are VERY repetitive. ALL Language apps are should be. However, other apps don’t provide as much variance as duolingo. I am extremely impressed that they can repeat vocabulary enough to optimize memorization, yet also provide consistent variance between the material. redundant vocabulary becomes interesting every time. I have used apps that have no variance and become boring fast, and apps that are too fast paced, lacking memorization technique and losing their learning power. Duolingo also offers stories that you listen and interact with, and even interactive podcasts. They are my favorite. The app gives you true sense of progress through achievements, monthly challenges, speed challenges, ranking, and a lot more. My critique is an app like this has more COMMUNITY potential than they realize. If I could message directly and even form groups with other learners in this app, it would be fantastic.

I am loving this app!. This app is really helping me to learn very quickly. I am learning Greek and brushing up on Spanish. I wish it would handle a few things differently Among them, letting me test out of Spanish levels further along the way than it does, but I understand they are testing whether that feature is more or less beneficial for learning at the moment. So, I upvoted the feature :). The other thing is that the adds are locked in portrait mode and the “practice” tab also starts out and sometimes gets stuck in portrait mode. I have tor turn my iPad to portrait and back to landscape and it usually switches to landscape then, but not always. I pretty much always use my iPad in landscape mode. Especially when I am using the keyboard, which the app has plenty of. I wish that the whole thing would just be in the orientation of my screen without changing/ trying to figure out which direction it should be as I use the app. Otherwise, this app has been AMAZING and, while, I’d love those improvements, I’m really just being nit picky. I didn’t feel it deserved any less than 5 stars because the rest is awesome! One note, if anyone is having trouble understanding anything in the language you’ve chosen or with the app, visit the website and check out the discussions tab. There is a lot of helpful info in there and many other language learners who are very happy to help out!

Course quality depends on the language. I've been using the premium version for two years, mostly on Japanese and tried some others. Some language courses are much better than others. For example the Spanish course seems pretty robust. Korean seemed pretty bad for beginners (even though it's a relatively easy language to learn). I have the most experience with the Japanese courses. It's honestly not great if you're completely new to the language. It doesn't have much focus on teaching the basic alphabet and tries to jump into to words or phrases without much context. If you already know a bit and want to learn some kanji it is decent for that. There are many frustrations with the courses. One of the most annoying things is when you're trying to complete courses quickly to beat a certain timer. Some sentences they want you to translate are weirdly long and unnatural. I can't help but to think there are roadblocks set in place to encourage people to buy timer boosts. I also really don't like the amount of unnecessary animations, some which you cannot turn off that just adds time between courses. Pretty frustrating when I'm trying to finish a few quick lessons during a break or to get more xp within the boost timer. Overall it's a fun little way to get some practice in but it's best used as a supplemental learning too. For many languages it doesn't seem to be a good way to learn from scratch.

Great app, I love it for language learning, but too meat-centric. I love using this for learning languages and use it daily. My primary is Spanish, then I use it some for other languages like French, Portuguese, Korean and German, which I’ll explore more when I finish Spanish. So much here and very well updated and perfected. Only technical issue is occasionally with words not accepted when doing audio to text on challenges. The audio to text doesn’t always work but it’s about as good as can be. Minus one star because it is SO MEAT-CENTRIC. The food sections are all about meat- chicken and fish. The audio sections are all about meat, and ordering only meat sandwiches, vegetables are gross…. Even the stories have one mocking vegetarians and to make that clear the audio part where you repeat what you hear is just for the waiter who ignores the man asking for vegetarian food. It’s the same on every language and super annoying for me and likely any vegans or vegetarians or anyone who eats more than carne y pollo y pescado. Super sick of it tbh, and would detract more stars but the rest of this is great and has taught me a lot for a realistic monthly fee so for that I’m just leaving this here for developers and the content design team to hopefully see and take into account. I know this app is all about diversity and inclusion— it shines through all the podcasts— and it’s just not evident with climate change, animal rights and people who believe in these matters.

Good starter language learning app but…. If you’re taking a language course in school, this app is great supplementation to practice your skills. If you’re just learning on your own, while Duo is a good stepping stone, you’ll need some extra resources if you’re serious in trying to master a language. Personally I use this and babble because the less popular languages like Swedish and Russian don’t get tips like German and Spanish. Apparently they’re available on the website itself, which is pretty inconvenient. (Really babble is more in depth in explaining the grammar. In comparing the two, they both have their strengths. Duo gives you quick vocabulary and babble gives more grammar.) My issue is really how strangely some of the modules are set up. I noticed that the more popular languages are set up in a way that’s a bit nonsensical and fails to set up the lesson they’re intending to teach you. The questions segment of German spent less time showing the proper set up on how questions are asked and spent more time having me translate random sentences. The thing that irritates me the most is how this app with every update tries to push you to buy premium. It used to be you’d just get a few ads for it but these days after every lesson about there’s another promotion for premium, with increasing unskippability which is even more aggravating. And they added an word save feature which is helpful for learning… except it’s for premium only!

Best Language Teaching app! Super Helpful and fun!. I wanted to learn Greek because, it’s in my culture and my realities and family know how to speak it. I searched for Greek learning apps and I stumbled across Duolingo. I made an account and started learned basics ( though I had experience I wanted to start from the beginning.) I got some things done and made it to checkpoint one, which took some days to complete the lessons. I took the test and failed, I tried again, Nope! Again I tried, but no success for me. I kept trying and eventually gave up but a few months later, I decided to start practicing again. I hadn’t used the app for MONTHS! And it was time to break the Non-Bilingual Wall. So I started it again yesterday and after leveling up on some things, I decided to try the test. I failed two times and then it said it wouldn’t be graded so I could just take it without hearts and stuff since I failed so many times. I took it and I finished and guess what? I PASSED!!!!!!!! I had no faith in my self and I gave up, but a little practice made it perfect. I continued practicing today and now I can speak in detailed sentences, and I know a lot more than before. I am even learning to write in Greek by solving the questions and taking courses. If you want to learn a language I recommend Duolingo, it has helped me come so far and I will continue to learn with Duolingo. Thank you Duo for helping me learn! ❤️❤️

ONE OF THE BEST WOULD RECOMMEND, SOME SMALL SUGGESTIONS AND ISSUES. If you are just starting out on a language this is the app. You learn words effectively and it is very good at encouraging to learn. The unfortunate thing was it got very repetitive and takes some time to get through to learn new words. It was very good when I first started learning Norwegian or Norsk Bokmål. I got the basics but really just basics. Duolingo won’t make you fluent but it is a great starting place and language practice tool to have when first encountering a new language. Don’t expect yourself to learn an entire language with Duolingo alone but it is great when wanting to practice the language you are learning or getting a few new words. Once again, it doesn’t feel like you are making super fast progress or you have grown quickly but I always enjoying going on and practicing. Another problem is that I never really understood why something was some way and Duolingo did not really do a good job explaining the reasons behind something so I was left confused. The good thing is these questions can be answered on the forum that Duolingo provides. Also the pronunciation does not appear to be given. All you could do was hear the word but I could never tell if the letter “d” was pronounced at the end of some words or not. I had to learn this outside of Duolingo. To conclude this is SPECTACULAR language learning app and I recommend it for all who want to try a new language.

Frustrating, but a good app. I have had Duolingo for maybe a month now and I’m level one on all of the first group of things. Now there are a few things I’d like to address. Duolingo is really great because I’m taking French this year. However there are many huge problems with it too. One is with the practice for a heart. I have been doing it right, le restaurant. But every time I type it no matter how I tweak it it says I’m wrong and knocks me down so I can’t actually ever earn that heart because it keeps giving me the same question which has the wrong thing happening. When I get it wrong it shows me the answer- exactly what I typed. It kind of drives me nuts. Other than that, the hearts system is really stressful because it basically tells you that making mistakes is horrible and that you literally have to pay for them. Now I know that’s not the point but it sure feels like it because failing a lesson sure feels horrible, doesn’t it? I’m sure there are plenty of bugs Duolingo has that I haven’t uncovered but I really wanted to put this out there. Other than these things, Duolingo is great and it’s a great choice to assist in learning a language. But seriously the hearts system crushes your soul and it sure doesn’t help on a bad day. And yes I understand Duo plus is better but come on, I just want a free language app. So if you’re still reading this thanks for listening to me little Duolingo rant. Have a great day.

Merci beaucoup, Duolingo!!!. I am a language learner at heart; I started as a toddler learning Hebrew from my mom, then as a nine year old, I began 11 years of Greek study, learning both modern and koine Greek. Sadly, I never had a wonderful course to take. I did three levels of Rosetta Stone which gave me an incredible foundation, but it didn’t have a life like way of teaching the language and I had no one to speak with. Then I found Duolingo and completed the entire Greek course. Even though it wasn’t quite as well formulated as the Rosetta Stone, it was WAY more inspiring for some reason. Then, after I had the wonderful opportunity at a job that required speaking with Dutch children, I blazed a good ways into the Dutch course. However, I kept noticing though, how much better the course was in languages like French, Spanish, German and English. So one day I did the first lesson in French, just to see what it was like to hear a story in a different language that wasn’t a far fetched tourist robot sounding conversation about where the toilet was. That was 1,160 days ago. I’ve been learning French ever since. To top it off, I realized my great grandparents spoke fluent French and our family had let it die out to only English. Duolingo—It’s the best resource I have, and all my friends tease me about my learning obsession. Thanks Duo for inspiring my favorite language learning experience so far!!!

Pretty cool way to learn. It’s pretty cool , especially if you want to learn fast . My only problem is with the hearts and the league system. The hearts are a major problem, because while it gives you the incentive not to make a mistake, it makes me have to reset my focus especially when running out of hearts. I say this because once you run out of hearts trying to learn you must go to previous lessons and practice or wait, and this goes hand and hand with the league system too. After you run out of hearts some people don’t have the time to practice the other lessons that they’ve previously done and it feels redundant as you end up mastering these skills and this makes people ( especially me ) feel as if learning is being prohibited by that much longer. Feeling this way makes people not want to continue learning and then they drop down in the league system, and once you drop it feels as if your hard work is being undermined. This fact alone has made a few people I know stop using Duolingo for this purpose. Along with the fact that there is no explanations as to why you get things wrong. There NEEDS TO BE EXPLANATIONS, especially if you want people to actually learn. The only way people can truly learn is if they understand. Quite frankly when Duolingo tells me I’m wrong it enrages me because there is no explanations, which in turn makes understanding that much harder .

Duolingo: IMHO The Best Way to Learn a Language. Hi! I rarely write reviews, but Duo means so much to me that I thought I would add a thought or two. Duolingo is one of the apps I rely on most on my phone, similar to the camera, flashlight, phone, texts, etc. After trying other language learning apps, the thing to me that sets Duo apart is the fact that they’re actually teaching you the STRUCTURE of a language. You’re not just memorizing phrases to use (which may be helpful in a crunch and you’re traveling to a different country); you’re actually learning how to conjugate the verbs based on the pronoun (critical if you’re trying to address a familiar you vs. a formal you, for instance). Yes, it’ll take more time, but you’re actually building a foundation from which you can really be flexible and confident in speaking a different language because Duo’s not just teaching you wrote phrases to memorize. Plus: IT’S FREE (there’s a bit of advertising to work through though)!! The AI teacher is an upgrade that is really tantalizing, which I haven’t invested in yet. Lastly: I took 3 years of German in high school; and in 3 years of Duolingo (5-10 minutes a day, almost every day), I am way further along in Spanish than I was in German. Thank you, Duolingo for not only developing this critical app, but also continuing to work to improve it. - Tim in Chicago

Love the Accessibility. Duolingo is awesome. I took Spanish lessons for years in school from 7th grade to an advanced college level and if you don’t have time for that and/or don’t have the money for expensive programs like Rosetta Stone (whose free app I’ve also used and still prefer THIS!) Duolingo is great. It feels like you’re playing a game- which my ADHD brain loves and it uses a great way to immerse you without seemingly boring repetition. Also if you haven’t used the app in a long time/ start it with some basic knowledge you DON’T have to do the “Hello = Hola” thing and start all over again at square one. I’ve noticed some incredible improvements in the app’s interface using it on and off for years.. but the new subtle additions/ changes—especially if your iOS is updated—- Duolingo makes it easier than ever to remember to practice. I have dedicated 10 minutes a day for a week and feel my skills getting so much better already. I can not recommend this enough!! Out of all the apps I use, I have never left a review lol. But I feel so fortunate to be able to learn so many languages from a legitimate and advanced learning system for free!! I feel even the premium would be worth it for no ads and once I’ve kept up my streak for a little longer while I’ll most likely invest in it, but again I don’t think it’s necessary.

Nice app but slow progress. The app is nicely designed and has good variety of testing formats, but each level takes FOREVER to pass. Some have 20 rounds before you can move on - and each round is the SAME thing. Even some of the levels seem the same. This feels like a waste of time for the learner and has made me start practicing even less (therefore using the app less) because I already know the material by round #5. I don’t need to review it 15 more times. Please make the progress faster, perhaps integrating some review of previous levels into later ones to ensure retention. Also, please allow us to skip levels more easily - right now it takes 400 gems to pass a level, and that takes many days of repetitive practice (of topics I already know) to accumulate. Not worth it. I even made a separate account to start over and take a placement test to hopefully bypass some of these basic levels. I did much better on this test that my first one, yet the levels they put me on seemed the exact same as on my other account - does the test actually place you anywhere other than the beginning? I get that you’re trying to make money by encouraging us to pay for more gems, but what you’re actually doing is discouraging me from using the app. (Plus, with all the ads, I already feel sufficiently encouraged to pay for premium.) Perhaps just make the number of gems we’re awarded for meeting our daily goal much larger or make the number required to pass a level much smaller.

The heart system takes the learning experience away. I’m learning Spanish on this app. You can only make 5 mistakes or else you need to wait to have the heart restored to continue. Many times I just have a very small translation error in English which the translation is definitely still right but the app won’t accept my answer - then I lost a heart. I just don’t understand if it’s necessary to have the heart system if I really want to learn. You can have me watch those ads after each lesson, and I’ll still continue study on this app and spend more time on this app. But it just feels like I cannot make mistakes with the heart system. Like don’t we learn from our mistakes? Sometimes I’m learning a new grammar of course I’m going to make some mistakes. I don’t know which program manager of your team came up with this idea but this person should be fired. The original goal of this app to HELP people LEARN languages, but now with the heart system it forces people to spend less time on the app, cannot make more than 5 mistakes, and just give customers a ugly-looking feeling of just want us to look ads so you can make more money. Also, you need to make sure what you are teaching is at least correct. The present tense and normal tense is always messed up in this app. Many times the translation is in present tense but they want you to write Spanish in normal tense and vice versa. I’m not sure if this is helping people to learn or making them more confused.

Very good but I have suggestions. Update. Still loving the format after 2 months but good grief the choice of vocabulary words for Vietnamese! Why am I learning bee, bat, comedian, ferris wheel, sparrow… when It hasn’t introduced numbers 6-9, or uncle/niece/ etc, or how to ask price, or even say - get this - RICE! which is a major food staple there! WHY?? I have been studying Vietnamese daily for a month and have suggestions for better learning. First and most important please make learning accents a much more integral and required part of learning the words. When you start, it seems like a pain, but as you move on you learn how necessary it is. Secondly, on the “Translate this sentence” lessons, I try to understand by only listening before looking at the words, but they speak at full speed and it’s just too fast for a beginner. Slowing down by just 10-15% would probably be enough to distinguish words. Third, I would love to be able to tag words that I want more practice on. Fourth, I can’t check something in the built in dictionary during a lesson without losing progress, and the dictionary is only in Vietnamese or lesson order. You should be able sort alphabetically in English too. Last, “What do you hear?” should tell you the definitions for reinforcing vocabulary. Overall it is very good and I am really enjoying it. I stopped playing games because I actually prefer the challenge of this app!

Love it, but some features need to be added. I have to say that Duolingo has taken me to a new world of languages. I can spend my whole days practicing with Duo and increase my ability of using languages. However, there're still things that I'm not satisfied with this version for IOS: - the discussions after answers: I've wait for them since a long long time ago. I believe that Duolingo is not only a software for learning languages, but also a special environment for everyone to enhance their skills together. Using Duo on IOS is quite convenient, but if I want to check my answer with the other's, I have to login my account again on the version for web browser, go to that skill, do it and seek for the question. That's not good at all! - The report: Nothing happens when I press the button to report the errors (most of them are translation errors). My and other's reports are the very efficient tools to help Duo better, and we want to see that in the near future. - The club should be added to web version and the currency systems - gems - needs need to be synced. Anyway, the life point is awesome, but we want more games, or tournaments, or challenges, or... something like that, just to increase the competitiveness between leaners. I know that to solve with the problems I've listed above will take a lot of time and money and labor power, but we can believe with our effort and strength, the future of Duolingo is brighter than ever! Duolingo is the sweet home for everyone!

Not a fan of the update. Practicing my daily Duolingo was something I looked forward to. Competing, buying the occasional gems for extra lessons, etc… The new update is NOT motivating. In theory it seems more seamless (I was excited for the stories to be incorporated) but I cannot get my daily exercises in since it changed. I like the pathway, but there are so many random tiles added, and to go back and practice is more difficult. I found going and practicing my old daily lessons was motivating because I was able to earn at least 20xp and get a refresher in on each lesson. Now, the lessons are just as long, I’m only getting 5xp, and if you want to complete the random task on the side (which I have no idea what the purpose of them are) you have to spend a TON of gems. I just don’t feel motivated to go back and practice, and the lessons have changed in a way that has caused me to run out of hearts every day since the update— I’m usually on top of not doing that! I just really miss the old version because I was telling EVERYONE to join and now I’m just a little frustrated :( it would be a 10/10 otherwise. Great app to learn languages from home, but the update seems less user friendly. If anything, I feel like they should’ve had a tutorial for all of the major changes. :( i agree with other reviews— the option between the pathway vs old screen would be nice. In all honesty— the old screen was super easy to follow!

My answer to la leche is wrong even though I spell it right.. This app has been very useful. My whole family speaks Spanish and they never taught me so I downloaded this app. Everything has been going good, but I have an issue with a lesson. So I decided to try and get all the crowns for the intro levels. I’m on level/crown 3 out of 6 and lesson 2 out of 4. Remember for this question, you have to complete 2 things to submit your answer. This question is talking about how to spell leche and choosing if la or el goes with it. So you choose la or el and of course I chose la because that is correct, then you have to type la leche. So when I’m trying to type la, the text box goes blank and you have to rewrite la, but this problem continues to occur when spelling la. So I put the word leche(milk) first and then take the blue like that’s there when you are typing and I put it in the beginning of the word leche and then type la in front of it with a space in between the 2 words. I then submit my answer thinking I’m clever and it would still work. Then it says my answer is wrong and it says you spell it like la leche, which is how I spelled it. I then report the answer, I retried this a few times and it still didn’t work. So I then skipped the level and went to the next level and was doing it until the same question popped up, just with different words. I then tried to answer it and it did the same exact thing. I’m just trying to complete my levels, someone please help.

Good for beginners. I downloaded this app since other apps I used, such as babble, wanted me to pay/subscribe in order to fully access language lessons which I think is unfair, or just didn’t teach me all that much. This app however was very good for me at first, since I am admittedly learning a lot and can speak full on sentences with the language that I am learning. It is convenient, and pretty fair in terms of money because I can still learn what I need to learn and deal with ads without necessarily having to pay money (even though there are perks if I bought super duolingo). My issue though and why I gave it 3 stars instead of 5 is because there are no explanations of terms just words, as well as when I go further into lessons, it adds extra words that it never even taught me before. If I don’t select or type the right it wants, I get it wrong and loose hearts (this app btw only gives you 5 hearts or 5 chances to get something wrong unless you pay for super duolingo unlimited hearts which is annoying. If you loose all 5 hearts you have to either wait for hours just to receive 1, or redo lessons for 1). I think that this app should properly teach or show all the words it wants me to learn before it just gets thrown at me out of nowhere and I don’t know how to answer. This isn’t with all of the prompts, but when it does happen, even the comment sections wonder why a word that was never taught in the lesson is there.

Thank you for such an App. I’ve heard of Duolingo many times before and just thought of it as a pay to learn app without verifying if what I think is true. I found other apps to learn Arabic but deleted them because I don’t have a job yet and can’t pay at all. I also don’t like asking for money from my parents. (I don't hate my parents nor anyone else, I just don’t ask for money). Anyway, continuing my train of thought. Yesterday, ( Wednesday, February 21st), my sister convinced me to download DL to learn Portuguese. I had no intention of learning Portuguese but the opposite can be said for Arabic. I download DL and talk to my sister about it and she mentions the word, “Free”. Now, don’t take me as a stingy person, not willing to spend even a little bit of money but I just wanted to learn a new language since they only have Spanish, French and ASL at my school. (High school by the way). Now, I’ve found out about this wondrous app that’s completely Free and you only need commitment. You can’t expect to learn a language by learning a word every 5 days. In return for this Language App being Free, you have to show perseverance. You have to have a desire for learning what you want to learn. Now, I just want to say, I have nothing against people who speak Portuguese or want to learn Portuguese, I just wanted to learn Arabic to further myself in my Religion. Islam

Fun way to study!. I took 2 Japanese courses in college and this is the perfect app to practice and brush up on my Japanese knowledge! Although, I must say it might not be the best app for learning from scratch… it starts by teaching the “alphabet” (hiragana, katakana) then throws in some harder vocabulary-including kanji.. it’s great if you aren’t looking to be proficient in writing, but probably not for you if you are. I already learned stroke order for the hiragana/katakana in college, but we never got to kanji.. so this app forces you to look elsewhere for stroke order, which is somewhat frustrating. Albeit, all the content has been right so far and is quite fun! Very user friendly and simple to study with! I just wish it had some textbook-esque quality to it before starting a new unit. I will stumble upon a random word and have no idea where it came from, but I guess it’s part of learning. Seeing a word you have never encountered then learning its meaning and usage. Doesn’t really explain grammatical rules, but as I said before, it really isn’t necessary if you are only trying to SPEAK the language rather than write it. I know my review sounds harsh, but I really do enjoy this app! I recommend anyone to try it at least once.. It really isn’t my style of “learning” but it is great fun for brushing up on my previous language knowledge:)

I luv ur app😁. Duolingo is simple and fun to use. I can tell a lot of work goes into it from the audio lessons to the animation characters. I also enjoy your ads for some weird reason. I just feel like your adds genuinely show what the app is and aren’t annoying like other adds. I also think their entertaining and cute. I also like the fact that even without super Duolingo you can still learn effectively and the app is still good. This makes the app more accessible and useful to a lot of people. Unlike other apps where If you don’t pay for extra benefits or super memberships the app turns to be totally useless and you can’t do anything. I am learning Spanish and Japanese. I find both categories to be taught well. I also see the differences in the way you teach these languages. I’m also guessing it changes by what language you speak. Which I find helpful and super cool of you. I luv Duolingo, it is so much fun to use. So shout out to all of the Duolingo team. I suggest to anyone who is reading this to try out the app. Don’t worry about going to slow or fast. Which the app makes me feel good in. I feel like I can make mistakes and take my time and not be rushed. The app is also not that complicated to use. P.S. I don’t review app ever but I thought this app really deserved it. The apps physical design is nice and so are the characters. May God bless you 😁

App is buggy and geared toward forcing you to pay. Duolingo wants to project a public image of an app dedicated to people languages for free. And you certainly can use it without paying, as long as you constantly watch as, often for really dubious apps or products. But mostly they seem to be following the airline model of, "sure, you can have the cheap version, but we are going to make it as annoying and miserable as we need to go get you to pay more." Take the heart system of lives, introduced supposedly to make learning more effective. But the fact that you can pay money to get infinite hearts either means they want you to pay to get an inferior version or they're lying that the hearts are beneficial. The fact that the app often has errors that cost you hearts just adds to the crappiness. (You can flag errors, but it takes months to get then corrected and you'll never get the hearts back, even if you paid for them.) There are a ton of functional bugs, too. For example, when you start a lesson, it will often try to get you to watch an ad for another heart, but only because it hasn't registered that your hearts have fully recharged already. (Funny how bugs always seem to work in favor of the app pushing you to pay for the premium version.) Honestly, it's not even that effective a way to learn a language. I'm quitting from a 1500 day streak in language I studied 30 years ago (and used little since) and most of what I know now is from class three decades back.

Great But Here Are A Few Tips. So this is great! I started learning Spanish a few weeks ago and I have learned a lot from this app. I thought I wasn’t going to stick with it, but I ended up doing it. It’s a really great app if you want to learn any language! Just a few tips though. A couple times, I’ve had a thing pop up when I’m trying to do my lesson. It says that something went wrong. I came back a while later and the same thing was happening. I’ve been working hard on my streak, and I really don’t want to lose it. I wonder if it is possible to not break my streak because of an error in the app. It’s only happened a couple times, so its fine. Another thing: I feel like we shouldn’t be given the stories until we got all of our first lessons done. I tried to do it when I only had 10 crowns, and I didn’t understand everything. I had to use the hints, and then I felt like I wasted a story. I would recommend not Doug the stories until you are done with the first lesson. The cafe one I would wait until you have the restaurant lesson done with all five crowns. The last thing is just being able to have more than 5 hearts if we do the practice. (Or at least up to 6). I feel like then, you would practice more to get hearts (even if it’s only one more than when your hearts are refilled). Well, this app is amazing even if you don’t fix those tiny things. I would definitely recommend.

Love the app but ... Look I Love this game like really but something is wrong with the duolingo Super so I got the super for free because I’ve been practicing like every day but do you have the icon that you could change from the boring old one to the new super one So I did that and next thing I know everything starts to crash like all my games work stuff and things, so I checked like what’s going on I’m panicking and then I realized this didn’t happen before, so I thought maybe icon because I changed it so after that I changed it back to what it was, and then everything started to like uncrashing so I was like let’s test it out again, so that’s what I did and then I turned it back on and everything started to like tell me I had no Wi-Fi but I have like five bars so can I have Siri right, and she tells me that something is wrong please try again but I have full bars like I said so then I turned it off like the icon And then after I turned it off everything started to work again, so I was like OK I’m not turning this back on again because then everything is going to start crashing again, so then after that I never turned it back on again and then everything is fine. |for DUOLINGO you really have to fix it because I don’t want no one to have a crash or their stuff telling them that they don’t have Wi-Fi because then they’re probably gonna get worried and I don’t want them to be worried at all like at all|

Excellent learning app. I enjoy the app because it twos that you make a commitment in terms of time devoted to learning, the animations, the interactivity, etc. The only downsides are the ads and the cost; it’s not free. With digital marketing, banner ads, and the countless ways to funnel money from online channels, the app could be free and should be free for particular groups of people (teachers, educators, public relations staff, etc.). We are wanting to learn the languages of our students and families to effectively communicate with them. The two main contributors to sustained marginalization for students and families who are emerging English learners are ACCESS and OPPORTUNITY (A&O). Most educators know how to navigate systems to open A&O for all students, but specifically communicating with emerging English language learners is difficult. Effectively communicating with families helps to build trust and demonstrates support, inclusivity, and trust. Those connections matter when we, as educators, are trying to not only improve their learning but also break cycles of limited A&O which anchor the lives trajectory of far too many brilliant students and hard working families. Educators already pay so much money out of their tight pockets for operational supplies. The cost of this program could easily be offset for educators by industries, corporations, civic donations, online marketing, etc.

In need of update. The reason for only 2 stars is that I want to be heard by Duolingo! I have been trying to contact you privately but it seems you like it this way instead. The update that needs to be done is to setup the app so you can be totally taken off the league if they want. I am a subscriber and I am going to cancel my subscription because although I am in the “Diamond” league now I am finding that all I do is compete! I came to learn a language, not compete with other people so you should have a setting where a person can opt out of these leagues and competitions. Also, the AI voice that is used is not always clear and is too fast when it speaks, we are learning a new language so why have is speak so fast? You should have a native of the language to record the voice not a robot. Also, the font is too small. I am learning Hebrew and I can’t see the niqqud; at least enable to pinch and stretch or enable us to change the font to a larger one. Also you should enable to add or take away the niqqud when you are used to the language. Lastly, the section where you learn the words is no audio although there is the “speaker” icon. When you press it to practice the word, no sound comes out. I hope you see this and please consider these requests. This is a really good app and I don’t want to give up my subscription. But I can’t learn by competing with people. I would rather learn solo and at my pace. I am willing to pay the price for that simple way. Thank you so much.

Great app- bad update. As usual, “upgrades” to computer products destroy functionality and make things progressively worse for the user. Latest update now has all lessons in sequence so that the learner has much less flexibility than before. Maybe its better if you are a school teacher trying to control what your students learn but I am nearly 60 and don’t need a nanny. The problems I wish they would have fixed include tiny pictures that I can see on my iPhone and occasional screens that don’t have enough room to see the text you are typing. They have fixed some of the regionalisms and no longer force me to use continental Spanish, for example. One continual annoyance with all academic language instruction is the insistence on “school grammar” instead of how people actually speak and write. Since I learned Spanish in an immersion program, I continually run into grammatical elements not actually used that I have to put in, like the “se” reflexive pronoun. Duolingo puts it in all the time, street Spanish leaves it out unless there is no other reference to the object. Since I still can’t type reliably on virtual keyboards, I rely heavily on voice recognition, which works poorly. Most of my mistakes are due to voice recognition errors and secondly word order. Decent voice recognition would be a real plus for me. In some cases, the voice recognition just pumps out complete absurdities that bear no resemblance to what I said, recently, “darmelo” became “Dave my load”.

Impossible with dyslexia. I wish there was a setting for people with dyslexia, that would make it easier to progress with spelling mistakes. I struggle with spelling English words and lose hearts when I get my own language wrong. This seems very unfair. I can understand it to some degree that learning to spell another language is important but it makes it impossible to progress when you have this disability. Even with the paid version it’s disheartening to get so many lessons wrong just because you spelt the word wrong or you accidentally used the wrong word because they put a similar word in to purposefully trip you up. I know the right words but I read them and spell them wrong sometimes and it would be so good if there was a setting that could help people like me where it flags that you have made mistakes and and gives you a chance to correct it before submitting. Or maybe have less spelling based lessons until you have a better grip on the language. But apart from this one issue it’s a really great app

Path and learning ruined for free and paid subscribers. The path style before was 10 units and you knew what you were studying with each topic. The current path style is basically as though each topic has become its own unit, which also is wrong… on unit 15 “Say where people are from” I am learning about how people are feeling and I’ve notice this inaccuracy on other units. I thought maybe the second half prepares you for the first part of the next unit which ultimately makes no sense. So not only do the topics not match the units but there seems to be less reveals of the learned language so I can see what it means in my language at the end for further practice and I can’t go back over previous lessons because nothing matches with what or where it’s meant to be! So the only real point to Duolingo is the competitive side and the streaks which further take away from learning and make it feel more like a chore! Why, I ask, is the path not like it was before? Which is how it STILL IS on the web version? Which I would much prefer to use the app than go onto the web which I don’t always have access to… Thanks a lot Duolingo for making the process to learn a frustrating chore; from 5 down to 2… I recommend memrise - one off payment for life subscription and you know what you’re learning with real people and return to previous lessons selectively and more easily

Love the app and the value it brings. Addictive and educational. The perfect mix really. Whenever I start scrolling pointlessly I have trained myself to notice it and instead go on Duo! It had definitely done my brain some good. My one thing I would LOVE to see if a way of knowing what words are what genders. I’m mostly learning German and for grammar it is so important, but sometimes/often I forgot the gender of a word and as a result I don’t know what articles to use… would love it if I could see the gender when I click on a word’s ‘hints’ or even if the nouns were colour coded. Second thing - another way to better and more intuitively see if sentences are formal or not would be nice. Another possible colour coding? Sometimes when you’re jumping into a “conversation” and you’re going off one sentence it’s a bit hard to tell what’s really going on. Thank you to all your team! Duo is easily my most expensive subscription, but it is something I enjoy supporting.

A revelation, but not perfect yet. This app has opened up a wonderful world of language (Indonesian for me) allowing me to learn the basics of everyday survival over a year at 5-10 minutes a day - Amazing! Many times I’ve felt compelled to subscribe to the paid version, but have bailed out at the last minute due to the copious small faults in the lessons which threaten to overwhelm the experience. For example, while most lessons are well constructed and easy/moderate to complete, allowing swift progress, my current one is ridiculously complicated in comparison and has slowed my progress. There are also inconsistencies in translations throughout the app that result in dispiriting errors when I actually got it right with the same answer in previous exercises. Even the exercises with the most copious number of complaints seem never to be fixed. If there was evidence that clear errors would be attended to as a priority, I’d be much more inclined to pay. The free model has obviously been successful in creating this app’s footprint. I look forward to it being more consistently tidied up so that it can transition to a well-polished paid product.

Please download this game😎😁. Very great. I love the different types of ways that you can learn languages, it’s interesting and fun. Since I am a grade 5 girl, this is quite enjoyable for me to do after school and on weekends. The challenges and the leaderboards are a great way to get me engaged with learning languages. One problem, I know it’s a cool idea to have hearts (lives, every time you mess up you loose one heart) and all but… what if you just want to enjoy the game and learn new skills, just learn from the mistake. I mess up a lot because I’m learning a difficult language and in like 30 minutes I’ve lost my hearts and can’t practice any more. But I do like the idea of practicing for hearts and the free trials to the ‘Super Duolingo’ but what if you just want to learn and your OUT OF HEARTS. It’s frustrating sometimes, but then I guess it teaches people to try not to mess up. Any way, thanks for reading this. Please reply back as I am curious to know what you think of this review. But this new Home Screen really not a fan of it. It’s so confusing on where I’m up to I really want the old one back.

Good App!. Ok. We all can see not only in the actual app profile on the App Store, but the actual game, that the animations are ADORABLE!!! The ability to be able to text with the animations in your selected language is so amazing and fun. But obviously with good comes bad, I really am not talking about the ads that you have to watch, but how, if you don’t buy the premium version they make your life a disaster. My hearts almost every 20 minutes get lost, and I know you might say I need to practice but, they make the practice tests for extra hearts take forever and then when you get an answer incorrect it jumps you back 3 whole inches!!! The books that there is are so cute, however you need HEARTS to read them. I’m sorry but what do I do? If I can practice for a heart but it takes 7 years to complete, well my hearts would have filled up by then. Now, I’m done with my critic. Overall suggestions. I think that everyday we should get gems, the amount of times I end up with ten after not continuously playing every day for 7 days... The game may be more enjoyable if we had: 1. More hearts or 2. Unlimited hearts (like the p r e m i u m users). Honestly I love this app apart from (some) fault so really I’ll give this app a 4/5 or 8/10. <3

Streaks need to go!. I love Duolingo, it’s great for language learning and the theme of the app is both cute and neat. The only thing I’m going to say is that you need to stop the streaks. I don’t need to wake up every morning being stressed over losing my streak, because I have system when learning a language that I go on Quizlet and try to memorise the alphabet. This usually happens every second day and my streak would obviously break. The constant reminder that I can’t lose my streak is stressful and pressuring and language learning is supposed to be fun and something that eases my mind because I enjoy it. I understand it’s more motivating for people who use the app to complete a daily lesson and therefore higher profit, but I think there should be an option to remove the streak or keep it. There’s obviously other people like me and the word needs to be spread so Duolingo can finally make a move. I don’t know if they have in the past but they kept the streak anyway, but I don’t like it and out of millions who use the app, I’m not the only one. Thank you.

A BUG THAT NEEDS FIXING. Hello Duolingo, this is a personal problem that I’m not sure if other people struggle with, but I am decently far along my duolingo journey and have noticed that, although I have multiple stories available for me to practice, I seem to only be able to practice the first four that I unlocked. And ever since (for about 1 or 2 months now)that has happened, I have only been able to practice those four (I usually have about 15-25 stories) I have tried everything; reloading the app, restarting my iPad and even updating both the app and the iPads iOS, nothing has helped. Again, not sure if this is a fault on your end or mine, or my iPads or something that I may have missed, and I’m not sure if this has ever occurred to others. Please respond to me with a solution of possible. (Also don’t take this the wrong way I love learning French with Duolingo it is very helpful for my studying and at home practice and apart from ads, I really do think that duolingo is a perfect app for learning a language) ⚠️edit! I do want to say that I also have lost about 3 units worth of learning, which was months of hard work and effort, just to lose it all again. I’m not sure exactly at what point this all went down, but it’s very disappointing.

Disappointed. I have a 466 day streak and my partner has a 702 day streak and we have always loved duolingo, but this new update is so disappointing. There are multiple glitches and we feel like we are being pushed to pay for the super account despite not really being able to spare the cash due to us being 20 and only working casual jobs whilst studying. We are worried about loosing our streaks as everything costs so many gems now and practice gives us barley any XP. Alongside this, there is no help if we get stuck and need a suggestion as the first suggestion is always wrong. My partner is nearly fluent in spanish now (duolingo + spanish speaking friends) and still has difficulty earning enough XP to stay in the diamond league. I am not as fluent but have learnt a lot since starting my French, but again it is so much more difficult to earn XP and stay in the diamond league. I just wish they eased up a little with the pressure to pay for the super account and at least bring up the practice XP and go back to only some stuff costing gems and not everything…

Possible money chasing or streak glitch. As a free to use language service I feel it is incredible and as it’s been upgraded the steps seem to fit perfectly for early stage learning (of learning Spanish for me) but the only downside for anyone who maybe has self diagnosed OCD and enjoys maintaining a streak there has been either a carefully inserted method of money grabbing or just a standard glitch that once your streak reaches higher numbers it may pretend like you didn’t follow the lessons for the day and require you to pay money to repair streaks. While I won’t pay I did find this disappointing as it even lets you open the prizes for completing your daily quota which means you've done the daily requirement yet you may still lose your streak. This has happened a few times to me through this and all once you reach a 30+ day streak. Small problem I know but this is aimed for people who may get anxiety from this sort of thing as I do just as a heads up, apart from that I really recommend this and it is a free service if you choose it to be and if you don’t mind supporting it and paying then no problems at all with the app

Please remove the 5 daily hearts.. I’m learning Arabic currently and this is great for learning the sounds and letters. It’s a great starting point and I loved how they used to just put quick adds after every lesson if you didn’t have the premium, which I saw as more than fair. However now they’ve started adding 5 daily hearts (you loose a heart after every mistake) and once you’ve used them up you have to wait 5 hours for them to refill. What I loved about Duolingo is that it really did encourage free education, in place for a very quick add after each lesson that you could click off of after 2 seconds. However it seems now they’ve taken to the tactic of trying to pressure you to pay to get “unlimited hearts”. I know that they’re a company and they need to profit but surely they have plenty of people who pay premium and get more than enough money from add revenue. I even just saw one of their own adds “support free education, join premium” ...I mean.... doesn’t that contradict the add in itself? I’m just really disappointed that Duolingo has gone down this path by trying to force people to buy the premium version. It’s very disappointing because it is a great app.

⚠️DO NOT DOWNLOAD⚠️. My name is Sierra, age 27 and I’m from Mexico along with the rest of my family, all of us speak Spanish, except for my four year old daughter Dina and my husband Felix. One night Dina told me she wanted to learn Spanish and if I could teach her, I told her I would love to but I had to get to work and since her papa had recently been fired I had to work more in order to pay for everything we have. And unfortunately Felix isn’t from Mexico and doesn’t know how to speak Spanish. Dina started getting really upset after I had told her this but I was running late for work so I told her I would figure something out on my lunch break. So it was my lunch break and I was sitting on the couch with Dina trying to figure out a solution, finally after heaps of research I discovered this app, I started to look into it more and found that it was perfect. I told Felix to get it set up for her. I was back from work and I was making dinner. I was watching Dino on her tablet playing Duolingo when suddenly I saw her completely freeze, I rushed over and asked what was wrong, she told me that the app had told her she was going to die so I comforted her and quickly deleted the app. It was a horrifying experience and we never spoke of the app again. Was this a bug or something because I don’t know.

Not enough gems. I have a 1261 day streak and have noticed something about the gems. For the first four hundred days, there were bonus crates at the start of every day that gave you a range of gems from ten to sixty. This was a really fun concept and it was always fun seeing what you got. Eventually, the developers did away with this and just gave you from ten to twenty gems at the end of each lesson. While not as good as before, this was still okay and a cool idea, it just did away with the whole element of choice. This also came with slightly reduced amounts of gems that you got for completing the quests AKA: get a 365 day streak. You still however got at least one hundred gems for beating these. NOW, however, (and the past 150 days) you are only given gems if you complete the daily goals, (you know what I’m talking about) and even when you do, you get a max of about eighteen gems, and that takes roughly half an hour to do. If you don’t do any quests, because your day was really busy, then bad luck, you get nothing. This update also came with A: a HUGE downgrade for beating the quests to only twenty to fifty gems and B: I was on level 51 one or whatnot, and yet now it removes all of the previous ones and condenses it down, so now I’m on level 12. All in all, I think it would be good to bring back more gems and give people more levels, since it used to be much more of a motive to actually do the Duolingo.

BRING BACK CONVERSATIONS, please.. Hi, I have been a user of Duolingo for many years and when you got rid conversations I was devastated and noticed my ability to learn languages decreased drastically and I found my motivation levels to drop rapidly and I just didn't want to use the app anymore. I found the 'conversation' using AI 'people' conducting these conversations with you was a great way for me to grasp how to construct sentences and apply the words I had learnt during recent lessons. I really like the addition of 'stories' in the new updates of Duolingo, but I wish that Duolingo had BOTH stories and conversations, I love both and they teach in different ways than just lessons. I am a disappointed customer asking the developers to bring conversations back, I dearly liked conversations and I dearly like stories I don't like how the developers keep trading off first, conversations for, I believe it was, practicing, then practicing for stories. I really liked all of these but found conversations to be the best learning tool for me and then stories and then practicing to be the least helpful in my quest to be bilingual and to be able to use the new language in real life in a real context. So please, developers I ask you to bring back conversations. Just please don't take stories too.

Has potential but too much frustration and thus far too expensive. Encountered quite a few problems while trying this out … For a common language like Spanish, and an app that has been around for years, there are too many errors present in the lessons themselves eg. Marking an answer as wrong when you gave the exact same answer that duolingo presented as a question earlier, and worse, offering as the correct solution a word/phrase that was never introduced in the lessons (eg. marking “tu eres una mujer” incorrect and offering “usted es una mujer” as the correct answer). I “reported” heaps of errors. I got offered a time challenge several times and accepted every time and it never once happened, the app just switched to the leaderboard. Weird stuff happens in all the “gamification”, such as having to click on “claim reward” multiple times and the received gems goes up each time you click. I was forever wondering if the app was working correctly. I’m all for supporting a free version through ads but you really take it to the extreme. Plus sometime I didn’t receive the promised “reward” for watching an ad (eg. a heart) The sound effects in the “stories” playing back at an ear-splitting volume. No ability to delete my profile. Ultimately it was just a painful experience. I could go on but I think you get the picture and I’m not getting paid to fix your app for you.

Good app, a few flaws. Duolingo is a pretty sound app, however I do have a few small problems with it. The biggest annoyance in the game is the health bar system and the amount of leniency given towards typos. The idea of the health system is good for when you’re trying the new levels, as it encourages you to practice more if you keep stuffing up, but it shouldn’t be present in levels you’ve already completed that you’re actually TRYING to practice. Don’t get me wrong, the practice system is a good concept, but you know what you’re worse at better than a random question generator, losing health in these old levels just slows you down from learning. Of course, this would be a little less of a problem if it gave you more leniency in small typos like accidentally putting the i before the e, or if you accidentally add in a letter at the end. Losing health for small errors like this when you knew the translation is just frustrating Also, could you guys please add in some volume options? I love listening to music, and I do it whenever I’m anywhere or doing anything, so having to switch it off or have it constantly disrupted by the forced voice over for even the text sections is a giant turn off and all round inconvenience

Duolingo has changed my life!. About 8 months ago, I was recommended Duolingo by a friend. I began learning Norwegian on there, as I had interest in Norway and my friend was also learning it. I’ve learnt so much in such a short time frame! I never did well with languages at school, but this app has been amazing. There’s a great balance of repetitive learning with fun learning! With each lesson you get XP points there’s lots of cool features such as leaderboard’s, leagues and badges to earn depending on your XP points. You can also compete with friends! There’s also a streak system to keep you coming back to the app to learn more. The characters and graphics are so cute, and there’s so much extra info you can learn about the language, such as grammar, composition, context, etc. I’m also currently learning German and I plan on learning Vietnamese in the new year. The app is so motivating! Because of Duolingo I plan to travel to Norway and possibly study there! (Same with German) There’s so much to get out of this app! I could go on forever about Duolingo, but I’d say it’s one of my favourite things, so definitely give it a try.

Slowly getting worse. Duolingo is an enjoyable app to use and has always been pleasant despite the abundance of ads. Recently they added in “hearts” which will shatter when you get an answer wrong, then you have to “refill” said hearts by purchasing them with in app currency known as “gems”. These gems can be earned by completing lessons, but of course you can also buy them. Your hearts will regenerate over time but your max is five at a time (i.e. five mistakes). Basically, this means now you will be spending less time on the app unless you are an ace at the language you are learning, or if you refill your hearts. Personally, I don’t even spend my gems on hearts because I don’t really want to support a system like this. Though if I did, I wonder how long it would take me to deplete all my gems, leaving me with the only option of buying them. It’s safe to say that this addition of hearts is disappointing and the decision to do so was clearly driven by money. I understand that it’s a free app, but I’m sure they’re making a decent amount from the number of ads in their app. I give Duolingo a 3/5. Unfortunately this score doesn’t regenerate.

Duolingo’s advantages: fun and disadvantages: ads. Advantages: Duolingo in a great app to learn new languages and skills. There are so many languages to pick from, and you can do multiple languages at a time. Duolingo will help you with your weak spots in a specific language. Duolingo will also make learning languages fun with daily challenges and fun games to learn words and sentences. Duolingo has characters to say the sentence you are learning. There are a few types of lessons, which l shall tell you. 1st type of lessons is speaking lessons, which is where an animated character speaks a sentence. Then you have to pick the words on the page to replicate that sentence. 2nd type of lessons is talking lessons, which is when an animated character speaks a sentence. Then you have to say that exact sentence. 3rd type of lesson is writing lessons, which is where there is a sentence on the page for you to type in a different language. Disadvantages: There is only 1 bad thing about Duolingo, and that is the ADS. Every time you complete 3 lessons there’s an ad. A Duolingo ad, that advertises there super Duolingo plan. Which you have to pay $10 dollars a month to have. But it does have its perks. It takes away all THEIR ads. It gives you infinite lives. People who have the super Duolingo plan is 4.9x more likely to finish all their lessons ( which coming from me is a LOT), and yeah. Why did l give it 5 stars, well l like it and also it helps me learn French. 🥖

Inconsistent Features, But Overall Amazing. As a free language learning service Duolingo is incredible. Over the past 6-7 months I have been learning German using primarily Duolingo, alongside other learning resources. However, most of this period has been on the desktop web version of Duolingo. When using the mobile app for Duolingo, I have frequently noticed inconsistencies with in-app features, across multiple devices and reinstalls. I use an iPhone 6S, and my mother uses an iPhone XR, and somehow this device difference means she has access to a practice skills lesson and I don’t? Also, my usetime for the app is restricted by health, whereas many other people I know are not restricted by a health bar. Recently, my app somehow started not having a health bar, but when I had to delete it and I reinstalled it, I suddenly have to deal with making < 5 mistakes while learning again. Another thing I have noticed, is a lack of extra information for each lesson. On desktop, I can right click the lesson and have access to a deeper written run through of the lesson, however on mobile, I have access to this extra information on less than half my lessons. Particularly, I am unable to view this on newer lessons I’m learning, and thus do not have extra context and information for new concepts. For what it is overall, Duolingo is an amazing app, especially when you consider its entirely free. However, this inconsistency is enough for me to rate it as 4 stars instead of 5.

Good App Getting Worse. I have been using Duolingo now for almost 5 years and I have finally given up. When I started it was a very simple and free app, there were only two voices and the lessons were incredibly simple. Now there’s a cast of incredibly patronizing characters that speak to me like I’m a child in incredibly annoying voices. I should say, I’m speaking of the Spanish course in particular. There is no option to turn all these silly voices off and one of them for some reason is a perpetually unenthusiastic emo girl, one day I got something wrong because she said she was excited in an I assumed she wasn’t based on her tone. The cartoon owl is annoying enough but at least in the early days you could turn him off. It’s also getting worse with the free version off the app, when I started there was ads but no love hearts, you could practice all day, now I can only use it for 30 mins at most before I run out of hearts and have to wait. It seems as though their plan is to make the free version so frustrating that you HAVE to upgrade. In fact most of the ads are urging you to upgrade. I guess that need to pay all of the animators for all their unnecessary work. I’m done, I’ve found an app that treats me like an adult. Good luck to you reading and I hope you get more out of the app than I did.

One improvement and one suggestion. So I love this app and I try to keep my streaks going as long as possible but some days (usually when I learn in the morning)it saves my progress but doesn’t continue my streak. It’s kind of annoying. I think it might have something to do with the timing because when I do it in the night, it’s totally fine. Another thing is that when I learn in the morning, it still comes up as perfectly fine, the fire is lit for the entire day until the next day where it comes out that I didn’t do anything that day. But regardless, I love this app so much and I play everyday, it helps me practice my French and the fun of playing a legendary round is awesome. I think you should get this app because it has helped me learn some things (but it is useful to live in a country that speaks the language you are trying to learn). Just a suggestion, maybe it could add an option that allows the users to create their own language and learn it like any other. The user might also be able to share the language with friends and let them learn it as well. Overall, I love this app!

VERY GOOD <3. So, I learn music, maths and German (which I’m most confident in) for 46 days and I think that it is an amazing app for learning language/ maths/ music. Though i think that it is expensive if you want premium, which I bought and It has helped a lot with lots of the features it give. Some of the best features (free) are, how it takes learning step by step which makes it easier to remember and learn in general. Another feature I LOVE is how it has a button when your out in public that say ‘I can’t listen now’ or ‘I can’t talk now’ which I fine really useful. Some Premium features that I love are, how it lets you have a lesson that is just speaking or listening. But I always mess up what I’m saying when and press the button that stops the speaker thing but it says that my answer was correct when I said it wrong and didn’t finish it, this is not a major problem because it usually doesn’t happen but sometimes it can be annoying. That’s all I have to say :) Thank you for the amazing app!

Was a great App. Another update; they have upgraded the app again and once agsin skipped me forward. Words i havent learnt being quizzed on, each level is all over the place and not on a specific category. I find my self just doing a faily lesson to keep my streak after receiving reminders. Lost the desire to learn with this now, but am sticking at it only because i want to learn I am Very disappointed developers Update: The new update has messed things up completely. It skipped me forward a long way, levels that i had got legendary status on were no longer and where it has skipped me forward to has words that I havent been taught. An absolute mess now Duolingo makes it easy and fun to learn I can suggest 3 improvements that i would greatly appreciate Create the ability to go back and review complete individual lessons rather than overall for a group of 5 lessons. Explain in more detail why the language works w for what you are learning, rather than an overall for a complete unit which only touches on a few things Also, create an area with all the words listed that you have learnt. Would be good to rehash that way

Very Unhappy, cancelling duo+ subscription. I love Duolingo and have found it extremely helpful in learning several different languages, however I’ve just opted the app pm my iPad and the layout has finally change. I’ve been seeing the new layout on my mum’s phone and other users screenshots etc. for a few months and have been extremely happy I didn’t have the update yet as it looked horrible. But now the update is finally here and I’m not happy at all. I cannot see myself using the app looking like this. It’s awful and the first design choice of any app that I have whole heartedly HATED. I have no idea where I’m up to and even though my Rogers’s has been “saved” it’s also been simplified to baby level which actually makes it more difficult to figure out. Now my lessons don’t even have titles so I’ll have no idea what I’m about to learn and whether I want to focus on a different topic until I’m ready to move on etc. I am also a Duolingo plus subscriber however I will be CANCELLING MY SUBSCRIPTION TO DUOLINGO PLUS as I don’t want to pay for this horrible new design that I’m sure will result in me not using the app very often if at all. I will continue to use the app on my phone as it hasn’t received an update yet but as soon as it does I’m not sure if I’ll ever keep Duolingo downloaded on any device.

Get rid of the stupid animations.. Duolingo has gone from bad to worse with each update. The latest revamp, replacing discrete modules with “units” of mishmashed sentences, is profoundly unusable, as both a new student and someone who is trying to revise or improve a language they already partially know. I wouldn’t dream of teaching my students this way, and am genuinely baffled as to which “experts” thought this was a useful way to teach a language. Horrible UI, horrible UX, and if that wasn’t bad enough, the “tips” that used to appear have been replaced with half a dozen rubbish examples and no explanation of functional grammar. Would rate this 0 stars if I could. (Former review, from the time the animation was introduced: The cartoons are distracting and grossly over-animated - please stop to consider that your userbase may include those with visual impairments, vestibular migraine, or seizures triggered by moving elements. Very poor design work with little regard for accessibility. Every update is worse than the last, stuffed full of bloated loading screens, ads, and those horrible little animations. The app is unusable if you want to avoid them; the desktop almost as bad unless you know how to use ad and element blockers.

Is this really the most useful?. Hi guys, when I first downloaded this app I was really happy when it came to my confidence slowly growing and I was thinking to myself I could actually learn Japanese. Then I came across a little problem, the way the app teaches you is you don’t learn how to construct sentences which is vital when learning any language, but instead you learn the common phrases. And I bet there are thousands of common phrases that this app could force you to memorise along with the minimum standard of 2,000 kanji characters. I find that this is the least effective way of learning a language such as Japanese especially when your first language is English. If it were me I would teach the basic alphabets (hiragana and katakana) teach them a few basic words and then teach them how to construct basic sentences instead of having them memorise literally thousands of phrases, then they begin learning kanji and then more complicated sentence structures and then the rest is is just expanding their vocabulary. I find that this method is easier more effective and quicker when learning literally any language. And if people are facing similar issues with other languages I would like you to consider doing a huge overhaul over all of your language courses. Until then I will be trying to find someone or something which could make learning a language easier, thank you.

Fix your lessons.. It is so obvious you only care about money, when users have been complaining about new words and phrases in their review lessons for weeks now. The German course is completely ruined because of this. I don’t even feel confident enough to try and master a level anymore because every time I review a lesson you throw new words, phrases and sentences at me and it’s happened during challenges as well it’s completely unfair. To be quite clear I’m not sure how talking about when a store is open or if someone would like to play soccer at three correlates to using accusative case & describing language skills it makes zero sense. It makes less sense when it’s a part of my “personal training” level. How can it be training when it hasn’t even been taught yet? I’m two whole levels ahead going back to try and golden my lessons and that is what I’m met with? New words, phrases and sentences that weren’t even taught in the next two levels is bad design. Also side note: 100 gems per challenge is insane considering how many gems you can earn a day is so little. (You also never gave users their gems back when you had the glitch that required you to complete the challenge twice before it would register.) It’s not free and easy learning for everyone when all of these mistakes exist.

Duolingo. Duolingo is a free, easy-to use app containing multiple groups of languages! Some I guarantee you didn’t even know existed… Duolingo gives paths and ways to learn half or more of a language, it obviously can’t make you absolutely fluent in the language itself but gives you an amazing idea of what the language is Like. The application gives you opportunities when traveling to show of your skills, so to be able to talk in larger/longer sentences and make small talk! This app is fun and not complicated! Now when you read this review and see the little pictures nestled below the download button your thinking: ‘this can’t be free!’… Well I’m here to tell you it is 100% free! Oblivious to ur surprise there are packages if you are Interested in buying some extra content. You can buy family packs, XP/hearts pack, etc… these help, but are completely optional! Throughout the course you will find tasks and pages with more things to study. Some language courses have letter learning, which sums up how to write in that language! While some have different sides to the language itself, like Japanese which has 3 different available sides of the language to learn. The app is awesome for school and language classes, if your behind or wanting to soar ahead. This is practically all I have to say in my review. I’m my mind I’m having a minor baggage of thoughts and information, but I would only bore you more! Best regards: a very happy downloader!

Health bar. I do four languages daily on Duolingo. However I dislike the way the health bar can block you out of all languages if you make 5 mistakes. I only allow myself a certain amount of time each day to study and if I get blocked out I can’t get back enough health in that day to continue. Previously I just used to swap languages so I could continue to get my quota and also regain a bit of health. I was happy to pay for the plus subscription to get rid of the ever increasing adverts but I am not going to pay for new health. Please do something about this as I am getting very disheartened by this app. However I do like the Owl popping up and giving me words of encouragement. In case I didn’t press send the other day with the above I’m sending it again. I am totally fed up with the current format of Duolingo. I keep getting blocked from continuing and am seriously considering giving Duolingo the flick. I have been doing four languages faithfully nearly every day and I really enjoyed it. I am also mad that I took the decision to buy a subscription. If I cannot do my quota of Duolingo every day maybe I will make the same effort to complain everyday. Does anyone actually read these comments and does anyone ever think to reply............

The Hearts. Hello Duolingo people! I would recommend this app but the only trouble I’m having in the app so far is that there are 3 hearts at one bar. Whenever you fail a lesson or question (I think), a heart gets taken off, hearts are basically lives in this app, but if your hearts run out or you get too many questions wrong you have to wait like HOURS to be able to play again. I don’t like how the app “Duolingo” is basically a video game with limited hearts to be able to go on to the next stage, if Duolingo got rid of the hearts and actually let us learn languages without making us wait a few hours (or minutes) it would have more people/users playing this game. I love the app and totally recommend it to learn languages but there are also ads. Back in the day they didn’t have a lot of ads but nowadays they have SO. MANY. ADS. It is so annoying how basically every minute is just an AD, I also want Duolingo to get rid of so many ads in this app. This should be an app to learn, not to see other games or wait to be able to learn languages.

A review Duolingo Chinese. Translation is mostly acceptable but not without errors. Some translated sentences are more Chinese than normal English. As I often say to my Mainland friends, “你用英文说汉语.“ This is because they tend to translate literally from Chinese to what little English they know. Their handicap is their failure to recognise that English verbs are conjugated. In English the verb “to be” takes the forms am, is, was, are and were but in Chinese there is only 是. Consequently my Mainland friends use the present tense even when they try to talk about events of 50 years ago. Another retired Chinese teacher uses the present participle exclusively but I refuse to correct her for fear of offending her. It is obvious that your teachers and translation team members are people trained by teachers who themselves were trained by Chinese “teachers” who were not educated in an English speaking country. I have met at least 50 Mainlanders who proudly told me, “我的大学专业是英文” but their syntax and grammar are embarrassing.

Duolingo: Download this app if you want to learn a new language. Duolingo is a beautifully crafted app, that teaches language in a fun way. The app is easy and has a variety of methods of learning such as: reading, audio books etc. The app rewards you for showing up and learning helping you keep motivated to speak the language of your choice. Duolingo also adds friendly competition in the form of a rank system. Where you get promoted to a higher rank if you have one of the top 15 xp scores. You collect xp from completing courses; again bringing another motivation to keep you on track. If you were to force me to tell you something bad about this app I would struggle. The only thing I see that could be improved is: Not making people subscribe to Duolingo plus to get the 14 day free trail. A lot of companies do this and I think you shouldn’t have to give your bank details for something that is free. But I digress, the app is a great language learning tool and premium doesn’t determine your learning success. But premium is like a tutor: you pay for extra help. I could go on about how having limited hearts without duolingo plus is a good thing but this review is long enough. Good luck to those learning a new language! Au revoir

$270 per year and still attempting to manipulate us into spending more. This is a well crafted and helpful app, and I am very happy to spend $270 per year for it (which I do), because it is, aside from the issue below, very well done and effective. However, I find it deeply troubling that this business constantly attempts to manipulate users into spending even more by “buying gems”. We all know what a lucrative revenue source this is for apps - we also know this is a shady practice, particularly when young people are a major customer base. Taking users all the way through “events” then at the last minute ramping up the difficulty and repeatedly suggesting they buy gems for time extensions at exorbitant prices is very sleazy. I work in tech so I am aware of these practices but other people aren’t and end up spending money they don’t have with manipulative gamification. I know the person who will be responding to this review won’t be responsible for this revenue strategy so I’m sorry for the negative energy… but please pass this higher up the chain if you can. It comes across SO badly. I would happily spend $300/year on this app - but I find this very off-putting. It’s a shame considering what a great app it is in every other respect.

A good app. This is a great app if you want to make learning fun and into a game. Though I would say that they should make hearts easier to get and harder to loose. I’m not saying they should get rid of it completely, but my sister only just started French and could only do about 5 minutes of learning before she ran out of hearts. I understand why they have health, but make it a little less scarce. I was just about to finish my hour long lesson with one heart and then I made a mistake and bam, all that progress lost and you have to do ten minutes of practice to get another heart. If you want to really stick and learn for hours, I don’t recommend this app unless you want to do something like arabic because (oddly) they don’t have hearts like German or french. I also think there should be a filter to turn the health off and on so people can stick at it or just have 5 minutes a day. Currently the health shield in the game costs money or “Duolingo plus” which is expensive and not worth it as it glitches when you get it. So overall, good app, but it could be a whole lot better.

Duolingo is a Fun and Easy-learning App for Kids! TOTALLY RECOMMEND!!!!!. Omg, lemme just start off my saying… Duolingo is the absolute best language-learning app I have ever encountered! I joined recently (October 2023 and ps. I wrote this in November 2023) and I already am so obsessed with it! It functions like a game, with quests and fun leaderboards to challenge your friends or other people across the globe! I have already been using the Japanese I have learnt to communicate with people more clearly, and I absolutely love it! It consists of many types of learning sessions, like learning new words with pictures, saying the words, or writing the words. There are sooo many languages to learn, and you can complete more than one! I am very dedicated about getting log-in streaks, and you can even add pretty Duolingo widgets to your Home Screen! My younger sister even uses it, and she loves it like me. I think the Duolingo mascot is actually kind of cute, and during sessions, they provide you with so much inspiration messages! I heart Duolingo, and rate it an 11 out of 10! Ilysm Duo and I’ve even gotten some of my friends to join! 😍😍

I was a fan before the update.. I was using this app multiple times a day every day for over a month and couldn’t believe such a perfect app for learning new languages existed! I loved how clearly labeled the lessons were and how you could go back and revisit ones you had to work on a bit more and keep going over the same sections until you had grasped the lessons confidently. This update progressed me past lessons I had not finished and wasn’t confident in and the lessons aren’t labeled in any way that you can revise and work on areas you aren’t quite grasping. The update they have put out feels more like a downgrade. This new update has completely discouraged my learning and I’ve gone from well over a month of every day use and excitement to use the app to getting notifications about losing my streak and being out of the streak freezes and doing one lesson and refilling streak freezes. My progress isn’t very clear and when I get into a lesson I’m not ever entirely sure what the lesson is going to be about and struggle to prepare for it. I guess the app as it is now would have been fine if I had never used the the old dilungo although I’m not sure I would have stuck with it the way I’ve stuck with and loved the pre updated app. I very rarely purchase subscription to anything and I was looking at doing the yearly family subscription before the update. Unfortunately I’m looking into new language apps. It’s such a shame.

Duolingo was better before the update.. Duolingo is a great app for learning basic sentences and words in other languages that can help you in the future and help you get a grasp of the language early on. I remember I always went on Duolingo everyday, excited to go on it and learn. From the new update, I’ve felt really demotivated to actually do any lessons. I had almost a year streak on Duolingo and I had lost it due to the fact that the new layout makes it so hard to keep track of everything. The layout previously, was very organised and well kept. The new layout on the other hand, is really disorganised and I don’t like the way they’ve set it out. I feel really unsatisfied with this new update and I think it would be better to change it back to the old layout where it is more efficient and made me feel a lot more motivated and happy to be learning. I also don’t like the fact that you get forced to read the stories. I liked it when you could choose if you wanted to read them. It’d be a little fun every now and then but now it’s just boring and it doesn’t make me feel like doing any of the lessons. Please change it back to the old layout. This app is still great, but I’m not learning as much as I could be.

I’m having some learning issues.. So I’ve been on Duolingo for about over two years now. After the overhaul of the entire app it has severely hindered my learning. Before the overhaul you could keep going through and advancing levels and repeat sections if you knew you were weak in those sections or just want to practice and refresh those areas. After the overhaul they just thrust you into the next section without the option to advance one section at a time. The lack of option to be able to use and repeat sentence structure and rules is genuinely frustrating for someone who likes to constantly practice. I’ve also noticed a difference between two languages and their tips section. I’ve recently started Russian after becoming comfortable enough in Italian and I’ve immediately noticed in some sections there not explanation of sentence rules or structure for Russian as there was for Italian. In the tips sections for Russian there is literally just phrases and conversations with no explanation for why or how certain words or phrases are used. It’s pretty strange being told to use these phrases instead of their literal meanings and/or how they’re structured.

Love the app! ( Please Read ). I Love the health bar love when it tells me I’m failing and not to fail again cause I don’t have many lives absolutely 10/10 never thought I’d learn a language but this app makes it super fun this game is not a cashgrab at all I recommend this game to everyone!!! I put one star so they would read my review My idea - To fix the streak problem everyone has in the reviews Make it so every 7 days or so when they complete a unit they get 5 gems every time or something So on the 7th day they get 5 gems completing a unit Day 8 they get 5 gems for completing a unit Day 9 and so on and so forth Cause gems are hard to come by but you don’t want it to hard to get them as well like it is now ( Gotta complete those legendary challenges ) Leagues - I still don’t understand why they’re a thing it’s not really like clash of clans Only reason I think for leagues. is if you battle someone like can you beat this person in a Spanish battle, otherwise it’s pretty useless it’s like look I practice more then you haha but I don’t have to prove I’m good at it Also needs a pet this game so people know why the health bars there I recon Feed it with words level it up things like that make it fun make it battle in ( French Oder German ) leagues Ahh you taught me that. ^ -ja, Duolingo ist sehr Gut -

Pretty decent app. Like other people who have commented on the app, the ability to learn Japanese falls down on the ability for new learners to grasp grammar, as learning connecting particles is not emphasised enough, which is necessary if you want to alter a sentence. I also wanted to comment that use of speed tests in events can disadvantage people and there should be an option to complete them without a timer or with an extended timer. This would help people who require extra time to think about the question, and allow them to participate in the events, without causing them to not bother with them, because even though they know the information, they can’t input it fast enough to be within the time limit. This can be especially difficult for people who have disabilities, as fast response can trigger a freeze response and mental blanks. Yes, you can get extra time by using points, but considering this could largely affect disabled people who use the app, that isn’t particularly fair. For a positive though, I like that words are brought back throughout the learning process and so information gets reinforced.

Not enough attention to fixing bugs. I have been subscribing to this app for 6 years, of which the last 2 as a paid member (Super Duolingo) but in all of the years I have used it, there have never been so many bugs as lately. And having bugs is one thing, but being completely ignored when you report them is another thing. Even though Duolingo advertises with ‘follow friends you will be more successful’, since November last year I have not been able to follow friends (initiate to follow) or follow friends back. I have reported this every couple of weeks since December and heard nothing back. I have had error messages of which I have sent screenshots to Duolingo, I have ‘bought’ upgrades to get 30 minutes double points instead of 15 minutes, only to get a message ‘sorry your reward is not available right now, try again later’. I have also reported this a few times and heard nothing back. There are very frequent upgrades, to fix bugs but none of them have fixed my problems. I will go back to being a free, unpaid user again as Duolingo doesn’t seem to care about people paying $130 per year for this app!

#1 best language app. Okay for starters Duolingo offers pretty much every and any language there is (even fictional languages such as Klingon) the app makes the languages easy to learn and if you continue with the same sections until all the lessons are completed you remember phrases and words very easily. Other alphabets such as Greek or mandarin teach you the alphabet as well. It does not require money to pay for but does have in app purchases same as unlimited hearts, oh I have forgotten to mention that there are hearts in game but they do recharge, the hearts make you think more about submitting your answer. There are also monthly challenges and leaderboards, the higher you climb the more gems you collect to buy things in the game. You also have a streak where you also earn gems for things, the streak keeps you going and the longest streak I know was 1000 days. In total Duolingo is a very good app, download if your are visiting a country, doing language in high school or just wanna learn a language.

Confusing and Explanations. To the Developers and Linguists at Duolingo, Though Duolingo is one of the most popular language learning app on many platforms and is trusted by many professional language teachers, it still has many flaws, such as the lack of explanations, the several bugs that have not been fixed, and of course, the stress that is inflicted upon the many people who use the app. And because the app has a lack of explanations, people find it stressing because they can't seem to learn the concept of a word, phrase or sentence. And though it may put more time and effort, it would be worth it to give explanations to people who use the app, but usually have a hard time remembering the concept, and I do have trouble remembering similar words, especially in german with the feminine/masculine suffixes and the -e, -t and -st suffixes in verbs. I would highly appreciate if you would be more mindful that some people learn languages slower and progress slower that other learners. If the customer service team at Duolingo see this review and consider adding the feature I have suggested, I would be very thankful.

Good but new update kinda ruins it. Don’t get me wrong this is a good app for language learning I would still recommend it the only big problem for me would have to be one of the new updates let me explain in the app there are leaderboards which are there to encourage people to not just practice every day but to practice as much as they can and it definitely works in fact I’ve been using it for a while and just got to diamond League the last one the issue is I’d usually do hard practice which gives you 20xp and then 10xp for a second time which worked great for a while but now when I’m on the last league they decide to make an update that replaces hard practice with legendary level which don’t get me wrong is a cool concept but the problem is that it’s a Duolingo + feature meaning that now I have to pay money to be able to stay on the leaderboards because now I can only do regular practice which gives half the xp it’s just really frustrating that after spending so much time trying to get to diamond league as soon as I’m there I can barely move up the leaderboards.

A few irritating things, but pretty good. To start off, the features are really good. Many languages are there, so you don’t need to worry about a language not being there. There’s practices, feeds, quests and streak freezes, etc. Despite all these amazing features, it needs a few improvements. Sometimes when you make a typo, it says that the answer is wrong. Other times, it says you have a typo. This might not be the games fault, which is acceptable. But please add more space to add more streak freezes! Sometimes (or pretty likely) you’ll have a stressing day, and you have to do Duolingo. You obviously wanna get it over with because you don’t always wanna do the lesson, but you only have 1/2. Moving on, you should add a feature for recording your voice to help people pronounce the sentence, because the only thing you can do it match and translate the word/sentence. If they pronounce something wrong, you make them pronounce it again. Overall, this app is really good! I enjoy it most of the time, and the features are super unique.

Duolingo. Duolingo is an amazing app, I find it really easy to navigate and it really helps when you’re wanting to learn a language. I really like how you can practice to earn hearts because, not only do you get free hearts but you can quickly review what you have recently been learning! Thank you for this app, I have been wanting to learn Latin for a long time and now I can for free! There are not many bad things about this app but there are still some. I don’t like how there are suddenly all these ads of the premium thing (although it is smart to advertise your own app). I have been using Duolingo for a couple of years now (I started off in Spanish), and there never were that many ads but now there are suddenly lots. There are very distracting and annoying because I don’t really want to pay just to get some better features so the ads are kind of useless. But apart from that it is an amazing app and you should be very proud. Thank you for sharing it with us all!

Harder work. It takes a while to learn the basics of languages such as Korean chinese or japanese. If you ever decide to learn all 3 of those it is hard to keep track with each one. Though many people may not be interested in learning all 3 or even any at all, I have been attempting to learn each and every one of those languages. I would appreciate it if languages like those were made so that the person trying to learn the languages would have to do more work in one session. Although there are fewer flaws, the flaws are pretty big which makes learning harder. You have to work terribly hard to do learn fewer phrases. I am currently learning chinese but it took me 1 1/2 unit’s to learn 5 numbers by heart. Duolingo makes up for these major flaws though by giving the user a fun way to learn a language. The gems and quests make using duolingo all the more intriguing and fun to do. Duolingo makes learning a language like a game and has super cute art styles and characters. I also love how the characters have different voices so you can get used to hearing a languages from people with other accents.

Mew update has changed the way the app can be used. While I like the new update in principle - it makes the learning journey seem more fun and makes progress more clear - it does allow me to continue using duolingo the way I had been, and in my opinion lessons now tend to be far too easy. In the past I would skip ahead to level 4, and then work my way to level 6 one lesson at a time, and this worked quite well for me as I would have to actually think to answer the questions. I would also focus on the parts of the course that I found more difficult, while skipping further ahead on things I found easier or that did not really interest me. With the new design you can’t do this, though. You are locked in to a single path, and must complete the lessons at all levels, with few options to skip the easier levels (of the same lessons). While I don’t mind the multi choice comprehension questions (although they are a bit easy) I really hate the questions where you just arrange words. I feel like I get nothing out of them, and if anything they harm my learning because I am not thinking between different translation options. I would really appreciate it if there were a way to turn off the “order the words” questions! I also liked the speech versions of the stories which are now gone. Otherwise, I see how this new version can be great for people new to duolingo, even if it is frustrating to those who have already started to use it in a particular way!

Doesn’t make sense for languages with different alphabets. I was hoping to use duolingo to improve speaking Japanese and Greek, but the focus is on learning the alphabets rather than learning useful speaking phrases. With Japanese especially this isn’t particularly helpful. I was learning for weeks and the focus was just on hiragana (one of the three Japanese alphabets). In the short / medium term this is useless, in real world applications (eg if you’re in a train station), most Japanese will be be in kanji. Duolingo for Japanese is therefore almost completely useless for speaking and reading / writing as you get incredibly bogged down in alphabets before learning to say anything...and the main alphabet you learn isn’t particularly useful. There should be an option to learn languages for speaking, with the text written in romanised form. Most people using this app will want to use it for speaking. Similarly with greek, the duolingo system isn’t suited to learning alphabets. Again, after weeks, the phrases are totally random (‘The good popcorn’) because they are purely devised to teach you the alphabet. I have been to Greece and have never needed to say or write. ‘The good popcorn’. Phonetic phrases would be much better!

Heart feature trash. The heart feature added to app version of this platform is awful. 💔💔💔💔

heart system is stupid. It won’t work out if waiting for whole 24 hrs to have full health, learning language is about making mistakes, the heart system is just another level stupidness, used to love it but now no more.

💥. Love this app!! (Please let my family go)

Microphone doesn’t work. Why does the microphone not work? It is such an integral part of the course. Apparently the microphone has not worked on this App for years as other reviews also complain about that. With so many intelligent App developers out there why has this not been fixed? Otherwise the programme is a good one and enjoyable. This bug MUST get fixed.

money hungry!. we sit through ads, that we are told is for supporting free learning, and now you make it so much more difficult to learn on this app when you just want us to pay. you charge way too much. some of us have lost our jobs and cannot pay. you’ve taken away perks from the app that were helping me learn. i now have to pay gems to use certain features that were always free for me to use?? why??? i have spent countless hours on this app and watched literally a thousand ads to help support my free learning and apparently that was all for nothing. you are just slapping me in the face and i can no longer even use the timed experience ramp up challenge without buying it?? i am SO unimpressed and so disheartened by this change in the app. it has really killed my desire to practice and learn. and again, i’m months into a streak, practicing for at least 3-4 hours a DAY. you guys are ruthless. it’s so sad. truly sad.

Duolingo. Awesome app, makes learning a language fun and easy. I wish it had Mandarin.

Hate the health bar and repetitive lessons. It takes forever to just get 1 heart after I have made a mistake. The lessons are also very redundant and repetitive, it's like the same lesson 48 times

Used to be great …. Unfortunately, changes to this app have made it far less enjoyable to use. This is what can happen when app developers decide they need to generate a revenue stream, I guess. Far too complicated a system of rewards that one has to navigate one’s way through, if one wants to stay on a ‘free’ plan. My advice to developers: Don’t clutter up your app with all those messages and convoluted reward systems. Make it clear up front that your app is either free (with frequent ads to support) or an ad-free subscription service. Get rid of all the other nonsense. I’ll probably just delete the app. Not interested in yet another subscription, and no patience for earning tokens at a snail’s pace.

Monetization creep. Obviously Duolingo is focusing on monetization. This latest update is garbage designed to encourage free users to upgrade to premium. Get rid of the hearts and go to hell for ruining what was once one of the greatest apps to ever exist.

Destroyed. The update to the path interface has really destroyed the product. I was thinking about upgrading to a subscription before, but now I’m thinking about uninstalling.

Help!!!. I missed my daliy German lesson and my is gone!!! There was a note in the kitchen that read: “Du hast deinen Deutschunterricht wieder verpasst! Ihre Familie wurde innerhalb von zwei Tagen zur Vernichtung gebracht, es sei denn, Sie beenden Ihre Lektion!!”

Used to Love it! Hearts??? Really???. I have been using this app for a while now. The new hearts system sucks. It is just a terrible idea to prevent someone from doing lessons because you ran out of hearts. Take this new feature out please.

AI Usage. AI language translation and voice is awful, laying off your experienced translators and staff makes Duolingo a lifeless app that doesn’t fulfill its promise of teaching language in an applicable and natural way

Counter Intuitive System. If I am trying to learn a language and I get a question wrong, I lose a life and am then restricted from learning the language. How am I supposed to improve if I am restricted from learning the language because I don’t know the language? This system does not help me learn the language and restricts my education.

Why Duolingo plus?Microtransit actions annoyances. This app is the best free language learning app at most, it’s heart system where you lose a heart each time you fail a question and then a whole lesson.And the only solution to this problem for us is to buy Duolingo plus to have infinite hearts.This honestly sucks cause you have to pay for it monthly or whatever just to learn a proper language or wait a few hours every day to get one or two hearts.Thanks Duolingo

New path update isn’t good. The new path update is confusing and annoying. I hate how I can no longer choose what I want to learn, how I can no longer skip ahead and how things are not properly split up based on the content. Why is stories not on a separate tab like they were before, I want to be able to do stories whenever I want. There should be an option for all users to be able to switch between the 2 different paths at any time they choose. The fact that this was not properly play tested and even though a large majority dislike this change is disgraceful for a company of this size. I had no problems with Duolingo before this update, but until you give an option to revert the path update then I will only be completing the easiest lesson to keep my streak. One again this change was pathetic and whoever approved this change should rethink their position at this company.

Take away the health bar!. I love this app and how easy and fun it is to learn a new language. My only problem with Duolingo is the fact that there is health, it takes so long for your health to refill fully and why is it that you are limiting the amount we learn. It is so unnecessary. I would love the app so much more if that was removed.

Right now Duolingo wouldn’t dare offer a live invitation to rate their app. An open invitation to rate them would absolutely tank their current good rating. Right now I’d be happy to give them 0 STARS After having earned a winning streak of almost a year, I lost it by minutes on the daylight saving time change over. It would cost me $10 to restore it- with no option of using gems! I found that so offputting that I stopped using the app for over two months. That’s getting close to the cost of a punitive parking ticket. Duolingo has totally abandon good pedagogy in adopting a punishment mode to force you to upgrade. Punishment is totally effective as a motivator for learning. In fact, is is counterproductive Now that I’ve come back to it I’m even more put off. You now need to maintain hearts in order to progress through a lesson. This will cost you 450 gems. Your errors never used to impede your ability to move to your daily goal. You just got an extra question and a reduced bonus. NO PUNISHMENT! Now you have to keep buying the hearts or you have to start the lesson completely over even if you were just one question away from finishing it! What a put-off. My first review lesson was very complex in its use of grammar, specific irregular verbs, and specific situations for pronouns, adjectives and articles. I kept making a different little mistake in many my do-overs and burned through a lot of hearts. That’s when I learned that you lost everything if you didn’t buy. Also frustrating is that Doulingo is totally unforgiving if you so much as mis-type one letter a name. It used to be a lot easier to forgive them their imperfections when you weren’t being fined for them. There also is no refund when you are fined for a correct answer- one that you share with them to help them improve. To Duolingo: I’ve been watching your ads to help keep this free. Some users cannot afford your fees, others will struggle with them- but make them a priority, others can afford them, and some could afford to pay more. That has always been the spectrum of your clients. You have forgotten your roots and your early mission. Your continued message of ”working to keep the working to keep Duolingo free” is becoming exceedingly hypocritical. I can’t help but wonder if you have a director and staff driving your new changed mission with a sub-plot of creating and keeping very well-paid jobs. I volunteer for hundreds of hours a year, and it saddens me to see these changes. Maybe you should get rid of the dishonest manipulation and do something like Wikipedia. They have a link that takes you to an explanation of their financing and have a donation button. They also are struggling, but they’re being honest in their struggle, not manipulative. Manipulating just diminishes the humanitarian aspect of helping individuals to learn a new language, many of which will be newcomers to the countries they live in or want to work in. It also diminishes the value of the work that your volunteers do, and have done, for altruistic reasons. Do please consider do please consider on doing this last cash grab undoing this last ill-thought cash grab.

Used to be amazing.... Before their terrible monetization scheme this was the best free language app out there. Now, it’s completely ruined. Instead of encouraging mistakes as you learn, it punishes you for each one, making each lesson seem like a pressure test. I used to recommend this app to anyone, but I will no longer do so. The health system on a timer is something I want no part of. If money isn’t an issue for you, it’s still probably a fine app with the monthly subscription fee, but the value for free users has completely been scraped from the program.

Challenge mode timer. New timer built in to the challenge mode just makes you rush and lose hearts Really don’t want this app to turn in to a fremium Update: it’s a fremium now, was on 182 day hot streak tell the heart system (health bar) made me lose because of typos and misclicks. I really was enjoying this app but if I need a video game I will just use my xbox or PlayStation

Very good. 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

please take off hearts.. i loved this app so much! it was a great way to learn a language without any pressure, and it made learning fun too! but then you added the hearts. the WORST thing you could do. please take them off! you’re literally holding people back from learning! punishing them if we get it wrong, OF COURSE WE ARE GOING TO GET THINGS WRONG, we are literally learning a new language ON AN APP. anyways, please take them off! :(

Duolingo Review. I have been extremely impressed with the organization and function of the app. I feel as though I am picking up Dutch really quickly in a short amount of time (as someone who has learned another language through school and can compare). The mix of written, spoken, listening and pronunciation work on the app is truly incredible, I never expected the app to be this good.

One heart, one person. When I loose a heart, Duo comes to my house and kidnaps a member of my family. Send police. No better, send FBI.

😡. Ok i thought that this was going to help me learn Spanish but it taught me how messed up this app is. you need hearts to learn. And keeps reminding me about the plus thing. Im sorry (not) but this app was a huge disappointment😡

Please change the voices. I have been using this app since February on a daily basis and have really enjoyed learning Spanish. Recently the voices have changed and one of the characters is a child’s voice. It is awful, hard to understand. Please, please, please change it back to clearer voices and remove the Spanish speaking child

Inappropriate subjects for kids. Thinking that it’s a learning tool and you had informed your kids age, I would expect more respect to the parents choice of approach some subjects like homosexuality. Homosexual stories are constantly brought up, distracting kids from the real objective of learning a new language. What about being more neutral?

Hate the new update. This was an amazing app and then they went and changed it for some reason. It was great and fun and I was actually learning but with the new version I am having a much harder time. If it doesn’t switch back, I may have to find another app.

Duo lingo sucks. It takes 5 HOURS just to refill ONE heart?? Duo lingo says it wants us to learn but all it wants CLEARLY is the money. Duo lingo, u need to fix this. I’m not gonna pay each month just for HEARTS. I will learn form a different app. Practice what u preach which is “we want everyone to learn free!!”🤨 MHMMM that sounds like a bunch of cap right there.

GET RID OF THE HEARTS. If your reading this Duolingo is an amazing app and I’ve been playing it for a while now and see that there is a health system preventing me from learning more please fix this problem and I will recommend this once awesome app...

Mauvaise appli. Depuis sa mise à jour que je n’avais pas je ne peux plus pratiquer autant qu’avant avec Duolingo car il y a maintenant des vies c’est vraiment stupide quand qu’on veut vraiment apprendre l’anglais...

Lacks explanation. The only downfall of the app is that it doesn’t explain why an answer is wrong. For instance, if you use the masculine version of a word but the correct version is feminine, it would notify that your answer is incorrect but wouldn’t provide the correct answer, or an explanation. I find when learning a new language that it’s easiest to remember how to structure sentences and spell words correctly if I understand why.

Horrible update. The new update changed how the app and program works. It’s horrible for someone who has been using all along. The program changed. Cutting my lesson short and putting me in another lesson without the proper training. Also, the levels have changed forcing us to take part in stories. The new update is horrible. Probably will have to find another program.

Used to be politically neutral. This app used to be politically neutral, now they are shoving this f’ed up leftist bull shi done your throat. Why not just have the animations the little bird instead of a woman wearing a burka, a trans woman with a shaved head, etc? What happened to this world? Its disturbing when ever aspect of life is invaded by this perverted ideology? For this, i rate the app zero stars

Heart system. I see allot of people complaining about the heart system in reviews... This prevents people from juste rushing to the end without remembering half of what they learned! When you are out of lives you simply have to do a “Practice” wich is a quiz that takes ALL what you have learned from the first lesson to the one you are at! This pushes me to review all of what i learned to be sure not to forget the lesson i did 1 week ago, or even more. I LOVE THE APP AND I LOVE THE HEART SYSTEM PS: dont miss a lesson or someone who is worth allot to you will go missing!

Learning path update has ruined a good thing. I’m a long time user of Duolingo- 8 years. I’ve seen a number of changes in the app, most of them positive. However, the new learning path is a disaster. For those of us who have been using the app for a long time, the new UI completely negates all of our previous work. I will only continue to use this app if an option to revert back to the previous learning path is offered to users.

New path update sucks. Give us the option to change back. Really bad new update. I thought it wasn’t so bad until I went to my first units I already did and boom there’s words I haven’t even learned yet. Also lost my august challenge progress with the update too. I don’t know if I have to go back so I don’t get screwed over for not understanding words that mysteriously popped up or if I’m just gonna have to give up the app and look for something else. Between how gamified this app is and this massive obstacle, I’m discontinuing my massive streak and looking for another learning app. I feel like everything I worked for was pretty much thrown away and I don’t wanna be working on a n app that decides to put words and lessons I didn’t complete, in my completed path. Zero sense

Bring back the classic format. A lot of regular users seem annoyed by the new format. I’m over 200 days in a row learning Spanish and loving duolingo but the format change this week was tough to take. Don’t like it at all.

Take away the hearts!. I love Duolingo- or at least I used to. The health bar is awful and totally ruins the entire app. I don’t know why they did this and sincerely hope they take it away!

Great app, plagued by ads and money-grubbing scheme. Tl;dr – Great app to learn but only if you pay subscription. As a free user, you can get away with learning the basics before it gets too tiresome with all the ads and waiting for hearts (lives) to restore. Long version: This is my first time using Duo, the lessons are designed beautifully, and the gamification helps add fun to the learning. But, like so many other reviews have mentioned, the heart system and countless ads ruined the free user experience. You can get upto 5 hearts and even a simple mistake such as choosing a different verb form results in loss of a heart. As others have said, this puts the pressure on learner and it becomes more about getting the right answer through the system instead of learning. I don't think you can learn much in the free version, specially when difficulty of lessons increase as you progress in the course. You'll end up giving up instead of waiting for hearts and ads to finish. This is ironic considering that the founders of Duolingo built this app with the idea of free education. It doesn't seem like that's the point anymore.

Remove hearts. The app is great for learning new languages but when you limit the amount of learning that someone can do because of the mistakes they make it is unfair and a very unsuccessful way to learn. Mistakes are how we learn, right? If you remove the hearts people will learn faster and more effectively.

I came here to learn a language. I downloaded this expecting to learn a language and not have to worry about making mistakes. It’s treated like a game with hearts and when those are gone it’s the worst thing possible I’m sorry but the app is bad with the whole game setup

Pay to win!?. This LANGUAGE LEARNER is pay to win. Why you may ask? Because of the health bar. Once you get 6 or less questions wrong, you’ll have to wait an hour for the health, so you can LEARN. You’d expect Candy Crush to have this, but no, DUOLINGO does. I hate to be the kind of guy that says “back in the old days”, but I’ll have too. In my elementary days, my teacher used Duolingo as a free time tool. It didn’t have the health bar, more customization, and a better interface. Now the app itself is rather nice, but I can’t get past the fact that it’s p2w. I understand you guys work hard, but just accept donations like Wikipedia, or use your ads. You can keep the Duolingo Plus, but take out the health bar. 1/5

Bye bye learning.... I use to LOVE duolingo app for learning Spanish... that is until they turned to a “health system” and you require lives to learn. When learning a new language you are going to make mistakes and if you have to wait a full day to earn lives you will never learn at that rate. I’m on an 80 day strike and up until today I didn’t need lives to learn and I would really learn by completing 20+ lessons in an hour. Now I cannot get through 4 because I’m out of lives!! Please take this option away! Even the version you pay for requires lives!! That’s so ridiculous. I use to recommend this app to anyone who wanted to learn a language and I no longer will be! This app is designed to learn not play. If I wanted to earn lives to play I would play candy crush.

Best language learning tool ever!. They drill the language into your head by their unique way of repetition with different variations until it sticks! You get the sense that they spent a lot of effort and paid attention to detail and methodology. Even the ads are polite to the point where you would want to watch their ads! Ads by consent! Well executed. Good job!

Heart are a Nuisance. Since the 5 heart came into play, I feel threatened when I make a mistake and lose a heart. I want the former version back.

They punish people for errors. I used to like duolingo when I first got it. Every time you update it they add something new like ads or punishments for making errors. You either pay with your points or you have to wait till later to be able to continue to use it. I'm not a child that doesn't work for me, either change this or I delete the app. I think it's a way to get more money but it treat adults like children.

You’re better off using the website version than the app.. The health bar isn’t a thing on the website, and as such I find the website much more conducive to actually learning. You’re allowed to make mistakes and learn from them as opposed to being punished and shut out. It’s also more forgiving of typos since you don’t lose health — ironic, since it’s easier to make mistakes on a phone’s miniature keyboard than a full-size keyboard. On the website, you don’t have to worry about losing health just because your dumb fat finger accidentally pressed enter before you were finished typing, because you’ll get the chance to try again without losing health. Would have liked to be able to learn on the go, but the app is garbage, so I’ll stick to desktop learning.

Money grubbing new owners. Update: Just when you think it couldn’t get worse...it finds a way! So they have taken the health system to be even more punishing. One of the few learning activities they wouldn’t take hearts away for before was a matching exercise. This made sense as it didn’t rely on clicking a “check” button. Today, I accidentally clicked on a card I didn’t mean to, and poof! One heart of 5 down. They claim that this is to prevent rushing through the material, but let’s be honest, it’s a “pain point “ to try and get users to pay for their “plus” membership. I am considering paying for my lessons, but it sure as hell won’t be Duolingo with their sneaky, underhanded tactics. From before: Studying Japanese, used to have no health bar, that changed without warning. Get rid of that health bar. Less likely to take risks to test myself now. Got rid of my ingots, for blue gems, did not feel like an equivalent exchange. I repeat, get rid of health bar. Also I would consider paying for subscription if it were more reasonably priced. Used to love Duolingo, now sorely disappointed.

Preposterous New Update. The new update is lazy, unintuitive, and frankly just overall worse. You have completely disregarded thousands of loyal users who have been using the platform with no issues by changing it completely to a redundant, quite useless update. We used to be able to focus on multiple lessons at a time, while also being able to go back, review, and practice in areas where we were not confident. The old layout was user friendly, adaptable, and it was quite easy and fun to use. If you got tired of one area of language, you could move on to another and go back to what was frustrating you at a later time without hindering your progress. Now, if you get stuck on something, or don’t want to do a specific exercise at that time. You are forced with either losing your streak or forcing yourself through an activity you have no motivation for. There are also absolutely NO indication of what the next course will be about. Verbs? Transportation? Daily life? Where did the categories go? My grandmother is 77 years old. She has been using Duolingo for around 2-3 years to help teach her different languages. And she has absolutely loved it. Every day for the past 2+ years I have heard her spend countless hours on Duolingo. Lately she’s lucky to spend more than 20 minutes on it before it becomes too boring and tedious for her. How do you expect users to want to continue learning if you have made it nearly impossible? How is it that in this new update you’ve seemed to completely ignore the very people who’ve made your app so widely used? You admit you’re hearing the app for “new users” but what about the old users who are the very reason your app does so well? Maybe you should actually listen to what your users are wanting out of this app instead of being capitalist pigs focused on brining in as many new users and paying subscribers as possible.

Great app honestly however. This app is truly amazing the people at Duo lingo really show depth and understanding of not only a language but how to teach it. It’s very stimulating and sometimes feels like your playing a game and rewards you with sounds and animations. However, while the app is executes it’s purpose very well there are some issues I’ve noticed with it. First the speech recognition software doesn’t seem to be very sensitive. There are times where I have to repeat a word that I have pronounced well before multiple times before it reads it. This issue might be more of a phone software issue than with the app itself nonetheless it’s an issue I’ve found. Second has to do with the teaching itself. Most languages other than English seem to emphasize masculinity or femininity for example in German Der,Die,Das. I find that the app does a poor job of explaining when to use the proper word. It seems that it almost expects you to memorize which nouns are considered masculine,feminine, or in the case with German also neutral. These are words that are used in almost every sentence and I believe there should be much more emphasis on teaching when they should be used if not outright having it be the very first lesson learned. Other than those two issues once again I must admit this is a very effective way of learning a new language. So big thank you to the Duo lingo team!

GREAT APP. Like many people are saying, this app doesn’t teach you FLUENT languages. I’m fluent in English and Spanish, but that’s because I’ve been in the dual language program in school since kindergarten, with half of my schooling being in Spanish, and I’m in seventh grade now. Learning French with Duolingo has been pretty great, though. I’ve been using it to enhance my Spanish after taking a placement test and I’ve learned better grammar! The app is aesthetically great and the Plus features are pretty nice. There’s no ads and you get unlimited hearts which is AMAZING (without Plus you only get 5 hearts and if you run out, you have to wait four hours for just 1 to fill up.) It has great learning techniques like the streak feature. I’m on a 12 day streak because it’s really gotten me to keep doing it. It can be a time consumer, but it doesn’t have to. One lesson may take 5-10 minutes. It also has many learning options based on your preferences. The standard lesson way, or learning the language based on real-world stories, or listening to lessons on audio and answering the questions by voice. Plus is a BIT pricey, but definitely worth it!! I would recommend Duolingo to anyone!! It’s so great, especially if you plan to travel anytime soon. Teaches you travel lessons, money lessons, etc. So great!

Makes learning fun. I decided to learn Spanish because I wanted to learn how to sign in Mexican Sign Language (LSM) and the book I bought was written in Spanish. It was so much easier than I thought it would be. There are different ways to pick up new vocabulary, match up words to make translations and more. Feels like a game. In a few months I could test out for the most rounds and am now learning the tenses. Then I started playing around with Hebrew. Boy, now that’s really hard! I’ve never tried learning an language with a syllabary instead of an alphabet. Duolingo isn’t really helpful with comparisons or explanations on the app and according to other reviews it’s better on the web. I saw descriptions when I was playing on the Spanish side. But now when on the Hebrew part I wish I could back up to compare the words and their structure. I’ll check out the web side and see if that’s better. But it’s free and it’s fun! Makes me feel smarter. Thanks Duolingo. Edit: one thing that annoys me about Duolingo is the notifications. The one that says: “those notifications don’t see to be working we will stop sending them for now”. Oh please. I’m on a 25 day streak and I’m still getting that message? It would make more sense if someone doesn’t log in for 7 days in a row to get that kind of message.

Meh - but still decent. I don’t think Duolingo is a good app for learning languages, but a really good one for practicing. Unless you buy a subscription (that is a bit costly), you only get to have 5 hearts every day. When you get a problem wrong, you lose hearts. Duolingo’s structure is really just doing problems. There’s not really an introduction to a language so if you’re new, you just get handed a problem and you have to figure it out. I run out of hearts really easily like that. However if you have already been introduced to the language, duo is great for practicing since there are so many different problems. Another problem I have is the problems themselves. During timed sessions, you don’t have that much time to read the problem carefully and sometimes mistype or click to fast. I think duo should be a little more generous when it comes to margin of errors. For example, the problem might be translate this sentence: “Juan comer muchas manzanas” and I would type “Juan eats mnya apples” or accidentally arrange the sentence to “Juan many eats apples”. I get really annoyed because I know I would run out of time trying to retype or just redo the problem again at the end, especially if it’s a long problem with a lot of characters. I still think duo is a great app though, because it’s free to download and really fun to use. There are a lot of language choices and easy to use.

Been great, but would love to see some improvements.. I’ve been learning Spanish for about a month and making (I think) decent progress. The gaming approach to learning makes it fun and competitive (if learning with another or others). I think this app would work well for homeschooling. However, it would be nice if in the future they could address a few things. As a “native English speaker” they should be more tolerant of ENGLISH typos if it doesn’t change the meaning of the word. (Afterall, I’m not there to perfect my English LOL) It would be wonderful if at the end of an exercise it would give you a LIST of the new words you learned, not just tell you how many new words you learned. Some exercises are set up so that you can write them down as you go, but others are not. So, either a list, or let you “page back” for your own review. Lastly, if there was some kind of “intro” as to how it all works; how to post a question in the comments, what are the crowns, gems, leagues etc - I missed it/ haven’t found it. I have had several questions that I would like to post in the exercise comments, but can’t find the “how”. Fortunately, in reading previous posts, so far, I’ve always found my question already answered, but still- I’d like to know how. (And yes, now I’ve figured out thee crowns & gems & leagues)

Plz fix this !. i would love a persian/lithuanian/croatian/somali course btw PLEASE FIX THIS BUG THAT people have been having for over a year who knows how long! The bug is: If you go to a course and “start” it (aka open it) from a different base language, you cannot delete it you can only delete the languages up until there is one left! So the last one stays and you can’t delete that one. it clutters up the interface of people who were just curious to see courses from other languages. Let me give an example. Ok fro example: I am a native English speaker. If I am curious and want to “learn” English from a Greek perspective and open the “Greek to English” course up, (when all my other courses are English to _____) whether I actually start it or not, it now shows up in my languages list on the app on my phone and I can’t delete it on my laptop OR phone! On my laptop the button to delete the English course when I turn it to Greek is grayed out. So now English is in my list of languages even though I am not learning it :( many other people have this problem from what I’ve seen on the forum and recently too!!! Pls fix :( it looks so ugly I was playing around earlier so I actually have many of these extra courses that I have no use for and cannot delete !!! Please fix :(. Thank you 😸😁

The new layout is terrible.. As a longtime multiple language learner on Duolingo, I am really sad to get on and see this oversimplified version today. I was doing so well and making leaps and bounds in my Dutch learning and all my motivation is completely gone in one stroke. You could've at least given us the option instead of forcing it on us. You say that people are just resistant to change but you're just pushing away people who genuinely loved this app by forcing a pointless extreme change on us all at once, so of course we're resistant. It's all good for new users, sure, but what about the rest of us? I accept small changes over time but a huge change like this can completely throw off the joy of learning for people. I don't even want to open the app anymore. Not ADHD friendly. Way too much scrolling. Looks like it's made for tiny children. Oversimplified, underdeveloped. Completely pointless change. It would be one thing if it was just an aesthetic change that was kinda ugly, but it's also made it incredibly hard to go back over old lessons and to jump around so you don't get bored and just give it up. Poor choice. Sad that you have decided it's non-negotiable. It's also trying to pretend that I have learned words already that I have not, and they're completely new words that I've never seen and it's acting like I should know them already. Your app is a piece of trash with this new update. You have traded actual love of learning with capitalistic greed.

An okay app, but ridiculously picky about grammar. I have been studying Spanish for 8 years now and constantly lose hearts in this game because I use a different, but just as accurate verb, or don’t include the pronoun they were looking for but still write a grammatically correct sentence translating what they gave me in English. An example of this was in a case where they counted my sentence wrong because I didn’t put the pronoun for “They” in Spanish and just included the verb in the correct tense with the correct conjugation. When I did it again, they told me that I should have known that the “They” was referencing girls, even though there was no context for this in the sentence. They don’t accept different translations for sentences that are just as accurate, which is frustrating when they make you translate entire sentences at a time. They also throw in random vocabulary that is not used in normal language and I think that I’ve been writing sentences about christmas for the past 5 levels I’ve been on. Christmas is only once a year; I’m not going to be talking about it this much. Overall, I don’t think I’ve gained much from this app, which is why I refuse to purchase the unlimited version. I originally got it so that I could practice my Spanish while I was out of classes and keep it up, and it has definitely decreased. Wouldn’t recommend unless you are only looking for a very light and brief course on spanish for like a weeks trip or something similar.

Horrible New Update. I absolutely despise the new update that changes the course layout. Different people learn in different ways, and having the more somewhat flexible course that you used to have was a lot better to some people than the completely linear and forced course that you have now. At the very least you could have given us an option to allow for us to switch back to the old course tree instead of being forced to use the path in order to better accommodate to more learners. Furthermore, I’ve looked at what other people have had to say about this new path of yours, both before and after the update came out, and almost every single review I have seen has said that they also hate it and want to keep the tree, or have an option to turn the path off and go back to the tree. You should really learn to better listen to the people using your app. Many people think this new update makes it look like you’re treating this is as a game as opposed to a proper learning experience, especially since the new layout has only served to be confusing and difficult to both manage and navigate. There are only negative things to say about this new update, and I sincerely hope you can fix it all so I can actually go back to learning the languages I would like to learn. Until then, I’m afraid I might have to use other methods of learning my languages and leave Duolingo behind, as I don’t see how this new setup could be helpful for me in any way anymore

Great supplement language app!. I like this app. However, the app is NOT as detailed in explaining Spanish rules as the website and I highly suggest if your Spanish isn’t as fluent, please use the website in conjunction to this app to get explanations on the rules. I say this because on the app, you are constantly penalized for wrong answers and when you lose health, you either need to spend your jewels (fastest) or practice (time consuming) or wait for the health to regenerate (the most time consuming). So, I’ve been going back and forth on the website and app so I don’t lose as much health. I do not like how the app penalizes you so much! It makes me lose motivation to continue the sessions because of the waiting period to regenerate health... and you spend a lot of jewels at once in order to obtain health. The app is fun! You earn rewards and streaks... all to motivate you to keep practicing. I like earning the jewels because you can use them to purchase health and other fun things in the app. The streak count makes me want to practice everyday! I like how you can join groups with other people that are learning the same language and you all can motivate each other. Your detailed profile information isn’t shared with them; it’s pretty basic where you know everyone’s screen name, languages they’re learning, and rewards they’ve obtained and that’s all. The app is convenient on the go for sure.

Very Well Done, Only One Major Flaw. The user interface, the competition, the gamification that the Duo team has done to language learning is done beyond expectations. The one thing people have a lot of trouble doing is sticking to it, and that’s their problem. I find myself coming back after long breaks, just like life, my self driving desire to learn foreign languages has its ups and its downs. I refrain. Drum roll please, the one problem I have, is that the “dinging” noise between questions is unnecessarily loud. The option to have sound levels or disable it completely should’ve been in there since day one. Since my rate has to cover both, the contents of the app, as well as the functionality itself, I have to give it a 4/5 stars. Simply for the singing fact, it literally makes my ears ring after it seems like you guys aim to trigger dopamine on a positive questions result, but man it’s gonna make me go deaf. Love the multi platform ability to just login to a desktop at school stay off my distracting phone, etc. Great overall app. Seriously, you guys practically have a monopoly on the language learning game. Goodbye Rosetta Stone! Please fix the happy hour xp not being added to my total if I click out of the lesson too fast! It’s happened to me so many times that the 5xp per lesson has added up to so much!!!!

corrected from 1 to 4 stars. At first, I hated the new path system, specifically that the stories were now baked into the main “path” and I could not progress in them independently. However, after using the new system for a few weeks I find that I am more inclined to do regular lessons which I used to hate doing. And the variety which I thought was lost is actually still there but it's more structured so you don't have to guess which story corresponds to which lesson. So as a whole the learning experience has been improved. Well done, DuoLingo team! Now, my only pet peeve (and the reason for 4 stars instead of 5) is that Match Madness and Rapid Review exercises (those animated characters doing various activities next to the main path) seem to be impossible to beat without purchasing extra time. No matter how fast I do these exercises I am always short at least 1 minute so I have to spend gems to buy time boosts so I can get the full 3 stars. Seems like an obvious attempt to convert people into paying customers. I get it, monetizing is hard, so I don't really blame you - same with the annoying Super ads after every single lesson - but I think you can do better in that regard. Having said that, to me DuoLingo is still the best language learning experience available as an app, so keep up the good work!

It’s pretty good. This app is good for learning languages but I hate how when I spell something wrong because I don’t know how to spell or pronounce it it makes me loose all my hearts and it’s the most annoying thing in the world when that happens, also when I was leading Spanish just right now it never warns me that I have to put “la” or “el” so I always get that wrong and it basically doesn’t teach you about la or el if your learning Spanish which I think it should at least tell you about el or la because I’m new to Spanish and I don’t know if I put la or el so it’s kinda annoying as well, also when I was done practicing the next day I lost one of my badges so it wasn’t gold it was just right at the beginning even though I have been practicing so much so I had to re-do it and usually when I don’t practice which never happens it cracks so i just fixed it up again but then this time it didn’t just crack it went back to the beginning but I guess over all it’s pretty good but on the Spanish I wish they could make the reading books not loose your hearts they should be a practice because I also lost a heart from the books but other than that that all I do recommend this but only if your learning one language at a time because I’m Learning two at a time and it’s stressful but you can learn two languages if you want i really liked this app and I recommend.😅

Duo’s usability going downhill. I have been using duolingo since it’s early early days. It has always been the very best language teaching platform around. More and more however, the app seems to be becoming more of a children’s game than a learning platform. Each update adds a more “game-like” feature or page. And more concerning, is that with every update the developers seems to be removing the parts of the app that make you want to come back to learn. The first of these negative transitions was the removal of the learning percentage, and the addition of “crowns” in it’s place. Can’t speak for everyone but, fake crowns do no good in my learning... maybe introduce crowns along side a percentage. However, the most recent of these negative transitions is the addition of “hearts”. Learning a language comes with making a lot of mistakes... how is anyone supposed to learn if they are told they cannot continue after making a specified number of mistakes? This is a huge step in the wrong direction for the app and hopefully the duo team will recognize it before it’s too late. I find myself rarely using the app now due to the “heart” addition. Seems to deter users from prolonged use. For the sake of learning, please steer the ship back to where it came. Go back to your roots duo. On a side note, duo team, you need to create a way to allow user feedback.

It has its pros and also cons. I’ve been playing Durango for a long time I’m learning five languages Japanese, Navajo, Arabic, Hebrew and high valerian but still has its cons first I I type in the exact thing it wants me to type and it says that I’m wrong even though I got it right and the heart system I run out of hearts, and I cannot learn atlas I do a lesson for one heart but still they should remove hearts, hearts, take away all the fun and learning a language it gives me hatred for learning, Arabic and Hebrew and Japanese and yes that also goes for Navajo in my high Valerian it be nice if you took away, the hearts hearts take away all the joy and when you lose all your hearts on one lesson, you lose it on all the rest of your hearts on your other lessons Take example, I lost all my hearts on Hebrew I go to my Arabic lessonI have no hearts on my Arabic lesson as well this is me with no hearts at all today i’m losing my Joy please fix this And also for different speakers, they don’t get all the same languages and don’t get the same amount I don’t speak Spanish, but there is one language I want to learn, but I couldn’t because I’m not a Spanish speaker I literally have nothing on Spanish please give all the languages for all speakers, the same amount and same languages i’m just trying to learn thank you I hope you fix all of this remember, I also hate the heart system goodbye 👋.

Long term user. I love this app and have been using it daily for over 4 years. The most recent overhaul is fantastic, even though I didn’t fully appreciate it at first. For me, at least two years of new content was added. For a volunteer supported app, that effort was incredible. I love the quiz and test out features and the progression of difficulty in the exercises. My criticisms are minor, but in theory should be easily fixable (says the non-programmer). I can’t figure out how to give feedback along the way so there is the ability to fix quickly. It seems like you can only report a correct or wrong answer but no other feedback. So here it is-there are times where none of the word choices that are given as hints for an answer are accepted as correct. It seems like there should be a correlation loop between the correct answers and the suggested answers. There are times in the same exercise where the answers are conflicting and no way to report that. Also it took me forever to figure out how to renew my Plus subscription. I would love to have access to a “contact us” field in the app for all devices that would offer options like: membership, report error, q&a (general and by topic section and chapter). To all the folks who have given their time and talent to developing and supporting this app, merci beaucoup à tous!

Problematic in some languages. I’ve been doing the Spanish, French, Japanese, Russian and Ukrainian. Overall the Spanish and French are very good with different activities from listening to reading with explanations when I make mistakes. Japanese is a little sparser with very little explanations beyond some brief “tips” given per section and a summary of the two out of the three writing systems. Ukrainian is laughably bare in instruction. 90% is just sentence translations with some listening or speaking, and sometimes they throw a sneaky curveball at you like putting a sentence that uses the Ukrainian version of the verb to have+ accusative when the section specifically is for genitive case without any explanation. Russian is the same but worse. I’ve been dinged with correct translations but slightly different word orders than their “correct” answer so many times it got to the point I was flagging sentences every session. And yes I know my versions are correct because native speakers have confirmed them. Overall if you want to learn French or Spanish it’s worth the free version if you can swallow all the ads (and yes the excessive amount of them does get irritating as others stated). As for the other languages I suggest looking elsewhere or at least not having this app as the primary way to learn them. As for the paid version in my opinion considering the price it’s not worth it until they improve the other languages in the same level as Spanish or French.

Over all fine. Not great, but fine.. My first language I learned was Romanian. I am half Romanian, and my mother and grandmother and other relatives speak it. I can understand Romanian, but I never learned how to speak or write it. I decided to try the app. The app works fine, it is pretty smoothly running. However, if I make a simple grammatical mistake that can be pointed out, the hearts run out. I think the hearts should be taken off, after all; how is someone supposed to learn with them suddenly not being aloud to because of mistakes they could have learned from? I have found I can now read in Romanian a little bit, this pleases me. But I came to the app because I wanted to be able to speak it, not read. That was another thing. And because I was illiterate at the beginning, I couldn’t do the test. I’ve had to work up from the beginning, and it’s become a real chore. I wish the hearts system was dealt with, and there was a better way of being able to learn for the app. (Also, I tried learning Russian, I believe that they should teach the alphabet, as I can’t read it. And most people just learning a language won’t be able to either.) overall, this app needs real work, but it improved me slightly. I can talk to my grandma a small bit in Romanian, but I’ve found just asking my mom for words works better. Please improve in these aspects. It can teach simple grammar and language, just don’t expect to be able to be anywhere close to fluent.

Plz read. I LOVE THIS APP!! For ppl who is reading this app you can pick a lot of languages to learn I picked Spanish bc i wanna communicate to ppl that speak Spanish! Also for some reason when I speak Spanish for the record thing it’s satisfying bc I never speaked another language before lol!!! But... theres this thing that I did not like when i started this app, and that thing was, it showed words that I had to guess and I never learned it. But I’m starting to learn! And it’s really fun, and good for kids! But you have to listen and be able to read, There is also tips, If you want you can also buy the plus, you get unlimited hearts and about the heart thing when you get a question wrong you lose a heart but with the plus you have unlimited hearts! Also offline courses, I think that is saving your lessons when your offline, no adds, and I think there is a more learning thing, idk? And also fun mastery quizzes!! I also love how you get gems 💎from leveling up and stuff like that and you can shop for new doulingo clothes and refill your hearts with the gems!! Lol 😂! That’s all I’m gonna say!! And thank you for making this game!! 😁😁😁 You teach LOTS of languages!! 🇺🇸🇬🇧🇸🇷🇾🇪🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🇻🇨🇸🇾 ( I picked random flags) I wonder how you know them ALL!! Haha! And again thank you!! AMAZING app!! 😺👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

Great But Lacking. First I want to say that my experience with Duolingo is amazing and I’m truly learning several languages which I never thought would be possible at my age. My criticism is that some languages are better designed than others - in my case Spanish compared to Korean. As we know, Korean is not a Latin based language and there is little to no effort for Duolingo to break down and explain things about how words are formulated, sounded and the construction of a sentence. You’re pretty much left on your own to figure it out. If I wasn’t so motivated to learn, I honestly think I would’ve given up. When they teach a new word, you have ONE time to learn the word and then it’s randomly thrown into sentences and you’re just expected to know it. If you can’t figure it out on your own, there are absolutely no resources or tips to help you learn. It was never explained how “friends”, “my friends”, “those friends” etc is written. You just have to figure it out. Duolingo really falls short in this area. So while I highly recommend them for Latin based languages, you will definitely need other resources to truly learn languages outside of that. It sometimes takes me over fifteen minutes to get through a single lesson (making the xp boost pointless) and it’s because I’m pretty much teaching myself with no help when you’re getting it wrong.

The Most Fun You'll Have Learning a New Laguage!. I LOVE it!!! I have downloaded others to try but duolingo blows them all away in fun, effectiveness, and price! I have been doing it for free and I feel like I could actually learn the language for free entirely, but I love the app so much that I actually WANT to pay for it! And one day in the future when I'm not broke I plan to sibscribe. But for now I'll just keep learning for free. Duolingo makes learning SO fun, in fact, I'm into the seventies in days in a row I haven't missed practicing! And I very rarely visit any of my games apps anymore. Why WASTE your time and brain when you could be having just as much fun learning and opening doors? Duolingo keeps me motivated not only by being fun, but also with its reminders to study, and by letting me know when friends I have met within the app have passed me up in xp points. I love earning badges and sometimes the competitions and races. I don't always participate in the competitions/races bc my old brain is slower at learning and absorbing new material these days. And I'm here to actually learn. So I usually just go at my own pace and even repeat material until I feel completely confident about my knowledge in that particular area. But sometimes I get feisty and race for the win!

This app is good except for a couple of things.. This is a good language learning app but it has a few thing that are wrong. 1) the keyboard for the mobile app, now I’m not sure if this is you but the keyboard is really buggy and keeps typing the wrong letters or completely missing them. 2) The audio for the listening and typing part, the audio is not always understandable because either it is too quiet to make out some of the words or that it something seems to slur the words together and I can’t tell the difference between “un ensalada” and “una ensalada” and it makes me get it wrong when i shouldn’t have. 3) THE HEART SYSTEM, this is the biggest problem with the app, it didn’t use to have a heart system and it was great and made the other two problems less severe because each time I get something wrong because of the top two problems I lose a heart even if it report it. The heart completely loses what this is supposed to be a free learning app. Because when you’re Spanish and you are getting stuff wrong (weather if it is for the top two problems or not) and you have to stop and can’t learn and more it just turns this app into one of those cheap mobile games that just want your money and nothing more. So those are the problems with your app the first two are minor I don’t care much about them there just bugs but the third problem that is what makes you lose those stars so fix it and I will give 5 stars

Disappointed. I’ve been using Duolingo on and off since 2012. I’ve been onboard for all of their updates, and it’s been exciting watching the app grow from where it started. Even this current update - though initially jarring - has potential to be really transformative in how users learn. That being said, there are a number of issues that have arisen out this new update that are quite frustrating. A list: 1. Scrolling from the bottom to the top of one’s path (or whatever it’s called), is quite a drag. I’m on Unit 38 of one language, and scrolling back to unit 9 to level up my legendary status is really annoying. It would be great if there was a shortcut to move up and down more freely. 2. The unit guidebooks don’t come anywhere close to covering all the information covered in the unit. The guidebook for my current unit talks about health and what one “must do,” however the lesson I just started is going into past tense with ZERO explanation. And finally 3. I am unable to access most content when I am offline. This one might be the last straw for me, personally. I would like to be able to practice on the subway, but this setup makes it virtually impossible. Other language apps make it possible to download the whole course for offline learning. If Duo weren’t so obsessed with “leagues” and challenges, I’m sure their content could handle offline access as well. Especially for those paying the subscription…

Wow! 🤩. Duolingo is an AWESOME game! All my friends had it, they were learning different languages all the time so I decided to give it a go. At first it was very frustrating so I just stopped playing it, one day I was on the Airplane and since I had no Wi Fi, I only had a couple of games to play. I was scrolling threw my phone and found Duolingo, and it took me a while to realize that it’s OK and I needed to try again. Everyone at first while learning a new language is a bit uncomfortable to it. So I chose some languages that I wanted to learn (Spanish and Mandarin). Not to lie, I had to google some to find the definition. But googling them and cheating actually helped me, it made my brain focus on the ones I didn’t really understand, and once googling them and knowing the definition, it stuck like glue in my head. (Seriously, I said words in Spanish daily for no reason). Once I warmed up to it, and never gave up on my 2nd try, I was a Duolingo fanatic!! I played it for about 2 hours a day. I got more hearts, gems, and my parents even let me get Duolingo PLUS!!!! 🥳Even though, I felt so mad at myself at first because all my friends knew languages and I didn’t, its just because of me not trying again and focusing enough. This is really an awesome game, remember to never give up even though things seem impossible. Great work, Creators!! 👍🏿😝

They finally have Arabic.... ...and it’s GREAT! They start you off learning to read, letter by letter, sound by sound until you can recognize the most common ones. They have you practice with made-up words from basic sound combinations, introducing more and more sounds at your pace. Then they sneak in real words, and before you know it, you’re translating whole sentences and it suddenly dawns on you that, yes, I can read that, and no, it’s not as hard as I thought it would be! I’m absolutely stoked to study Arabic with Duolingo every day. The reward system is a bit of a joke, unfortunately, but the learning process itself is fun enough that you don’t need it to keep you motivated. It’s fun, I love it, and if you haven’t tried it, give it a go. I’ve gone through all they have on Spanish as well and it’s really, really good, especially for beginners. If you’re not a beginner and just need to brush up, it’s good for you too. You can take the test and it’ll place you as far along in the course as it thinks you should be, and then you can choose which lessons you want to brush up on. There are a lot of ads, but I’m guessing they’re not getting the funding they need in other ways, and it’s a free app, so it makes sense. You’ll have to skip through them after every lesson, but it’s not ridiculous.

The app would be great if they didn’t lie about subscriptions. This app is useful for reviewing languages you are learning however you can’t really use it without the premium plan. You have five hearts per question, if you get that question wrong you lose a heart and go to the next question. Your hearts don’t reset after each lesson. If you run out of hearts mid lesson you cannot continue the lesson and must forfeit your progress for it unless you get more hearts. You can get more hearts by buying them with gems or waiting a few hours for your hearts to refill. The other alternative is buy a premium subscription to Duolingo which gives you UNLIMITED hearts. I understand companies need to make money and that’s fine; but Duolingo markets themselves as a service that can be used without the need for any purchases. When you get an advertisement there is a message below saying how ads help keep Duolingo free for millions of learners. Of course these ads can also be removed by a premium version. If Duolingo didn’t market themselves as an app that can be used standalone I wouldn’t have a problem with their current business model. But considering they don’t really let you finish lessons because of the 5 heart limit but say it helps keep learning free is false advertising. Duolingo is a large company that can afford their experiences and pay their social media managers to mess around on social media, but can’t provide a reasonable way to learn without paying a fee. Duolingo, do better.

awesome + suggestions. i don’t know why i’m putting this. i never make comments. but here we go. this app is incredibly useful. when taking a language seriously it is an extremely useful and well engineered app. i enjoy how it game-ifys the experience and includes the collaboration of seeing friends or public leader boards and there progress as well as languages and such. okay. suggestions time. even though i didn’t get to say everyyyy good thing about this app, i do want to skip to my main hopes for the future. Mainly i think it would be cool to have some more in depth explanations or lessons regarding certain topics of the languages. either videos or paragraphs just explaining nuances of the language. yes they exist currently. but i invite the consideration of duolingo to make them more robust. please. Secondly, it would be SOOOO COOLLL if there was a chat function on here! literally you have all these people learning new languages in one place! just let us talk and ask questions and practice language with eachother! Please!!! or put a forum where we can discuss the language together! please! okay and now the least important suggestion and hope is that maybe duolingo could teach basics to coding as a course? i mean after all they already have math music classes on this app. thanks for reading. bye now

It’s okay. This is a pretty good app, but don’t expect to be fluent in a language from just an app. It teaches some basics, but in order to be fluent in a language, you need to do much more (like buy some books in the language you want to learn, listen to people talk and sing in that language so you can hear how they speak casually, surround yourself with people who are familiar with that language, and practice that language frequently for years, etc.). However, I’m not a big fan of the hearts system. It limits you to only being able to make 5 mistakes, and pressures you into not making mistakes, and that’s not a good way to learn. Ask anyone who is great at something like drawing, singing, or playing an instrument. Of course, before being great, they’ve still all made several mistakes, and it’s extremely rare for someone to be great at something before lots of practicing and mistakes. Making mistakes is a part of learning. It’s similar how before babies learn how to talk. They of course make a lot of mistakes. They mispronounce words and they use incorrect grammar very frequently, and that’s okay. I’d rather have more ads than have to stress about losing hearts, but that’s just my opinion. All in all, this would be a good app for learning a new language, just keep in mind that learning a new language is much more complex, and you’ll have to put in a lot more time, effort, money, and determination.

Duo - tastic! But a few problems…. Duolingo is a great language learning experience, and I recommend it to others, but there’s just three things that make me give it 4 ⭐️s. I don’t like the way you have to wait to get more language lessons if you run out of hearts, at first I wasn’t so good at Duolingo, running out of hearts all the time. And I know, if you join the membership, you’ll get infinite hearts, but I just don’t feel like doing it because I don’t have a lot of time to do Duolingo and think that it’s a waste of money. The second part is the kids’ animation. Also known as Junior, his strange voice is hard to interpret. In fact, the majority of my mistakes are from his off putting voice. I really hope Junior’s voice gets changed to something easier to hear/more realistic. The third problem is the ads. After every lesson I get, there is a Membership advertisement of sone sort. It becomes really annoying, so much in fact that I exit out of the app in order to skip the bothersome ads. Although it’s not going to impact learning, they should really fix it. I also just realized a few months ago that Duolingo supports lesbian couples because of Bea and Lin. In summary, Duolingo is a great language app with very little problems, but still can be a bother once in a while. I recommend to anyone who wishes to learn a language in a quick, fun (ish) way.

What a FUN App! ☺️. Greeeeetings! So, app is incredible. I have been eyeing it for a long time, and dabbled in it back and forth. I tried two other language learning programs and this one suits me the best. I love how they repeat words, even at the different levels. I also love how it allows you to retry the words and phrases I’ve missed from the last section. It’s a great refresher, but you all also word things correctly when I make a mistake. It’s like, “Oh. That’s what I missed. Let’s try it again.” THAT is a great boost to anyone’s confidence. Make you want to try again. The tips are outstanding, and you even get to dress up your character in different clothes with the points you earn. There’s good incentives to keep playing. The most important thing to me is how you all have taken one of the most difficult things to do, learning another language, and made it interesting, fun and doable. I find this to be twice as nice, since the world is a blend of everyone, and I have felt terrible when another person goes out of their way to learn English while others around them don’t care to even learn how to say please, excuse me or thank you in their native language. It bothered me to not know how or even to communicate that I don’t know what anyone is saying. This program is great and I am super thankful for it!!!

Wonderful app, but doesn’t recognize my voice. Ok, first of all I love this app, it’s great for learning and I have learned tons of new words already. Though I wish it would better recognize my voice. This gets incredibly annoying when I am doing a speed round, trying to earn points. I am saying the right things but it doesn’t recognize that I am saying it so it waits to see if I will, then when it finally takes 5 seconds to realize it doesn’t care, it moves on. But that’s 5 seconds taken off my timer and a waste of the gems I payed to play a round I can’t win because it doesn’t recognize me talking. Do I really have to have a spot on accent to get it right? And I get it might be difficult, but if anyone with authority to get it done reads this, could make it recognize the voice faster? It takes at least 3 to 5 seconds to realize it doesn’t care what I have to say and that it can’t recognize my voice. Thank you! Edit: It also doesn’t recognize when I say new words, which is VERY annoying. I will say the new word exactly how they said it but it will tell me I’m wrong and give me 3 more tries to get it wrong. I don’t know why it does this but once you get a new word wrong there’s no point in trying again because it won’t recognize it. Please, someone fix this. It is incredibly obnoxious.

Horrible update. This morning, this was by far the best language-learning app I've come across (so good, in fact, that I was about to go 'ad free' once I got an iTunes payment problem figured out). This evening, it's now one of the worst. With the 'old' system, your skills turned 'gold' when you mastered them - occasionally you'd have to go back and revisit them to keep them golden - a great way to incorporate delayed repetition. Now, there are 'levels' for all skills. So, if I want to graduate to the next level for the 'abc' skill (it's the alphabet - which I need no practice with since I'm halfway through the course), I need to do 16 more practice sets. And I need to do this for every one of the 30+ skills I've gone through so far to level them up. Seriously - to show that I know the Greek alphabet, I need to spend about an hour working through that skill again and, who knows, maybe there's another skill level after that one. Useless and pointless. I'm looking for another language-learning app - there are a lot of good ones out there. Update: there's a level 3 in 'abc', and it has 24 parts to it. It will take well over an hour to complete and the questions don't get any harder, they just repeat over and over. Seriously, why do app developers break really good apps? Boggles my mind!

Duolingo Is Awesome!!!🤩. I always wanted to use Duolingo because I read reviews that it was a good app, then I finally got Duolingo. So a few years ago I went to a Japanese school to lean Japanese. I did know some Japanese at that time but then I stopped because of the pandemic. I started using Duolingo like 3 weeks ago and it showed me stuff that I already knew it was good because I could review it. I been using it a lot. Then it started teaching Japanese to me little by little and I already know more Japanese then I used to know. It so amazing how fast you can learn a language it is also not boring. You can earn badges, Achievements, Gems, and the cool thing is that if you answered a question wrong then you can use the gems to save you. If you do not have enough gems then you can do a practice. You can also change to a different course for example a different language. You can also complete each month’s challenge to earn exclusive badges. And more! But I do have things about Duolingo that I do not like. Like you can not practice listening to your language unless you do Super Duolingo. It is also nice that they can send you notifications with you to practice so you do not have to worry that much. So, if you want to lean a new language on a app then get Duolingo! Bye 👋

An excellent aid. Duolingo has grown a lot since I began learning it, though by no means is it a perfect single tool for learning a language. Personally I have experience in the Spanish and German courses, both of which I have sought out other means of learning the language with Duolingo being a support. Duolingo can impart helpful words, phrases, and help you see a lot of example with the languages grammar! However, a short coming of the application is it does not have a way to focus in on vocabulary or a specific grammar system you may be struggling with. For learning numbers, nouns the alphabets sounds, and especially verbs, you would likely need to find other sources to study them repeatedly such as Quizlet or just flash cards, websites and apps like SpanishDict for in depth lessons on grammar outside of a school setting. Is the app worth it? The free version absolutely, it is free, it does a good job at giving examples and forcing you to interact with the language. The paid subscription? A mixed bag, it adds the ability to make mistakes without a penalty, but the price point is hard to justify for individuals who do not have the most financial freedom. If you want to look into a language, for fun or to try and fully learn the language I personally feel Duolingo is a fantastic area to begin.

Awesome app! Few few problems with it.. Duolingo provides a great learning system, although it is a bit difficult to learn a completely new language. I am learning German, and have been for a few months on Duolingo, but starting off was a bit difficult. Yes the app gave you definitions for words, but it didn’t really give you how you should use the word. For example; it didn’t provide which variation of ‘the’ would be used for feminine, masculine or neutral classification. The only other problem are the ‘lives.’ When I had originally downloaded Duolingo, I could practice for nearly half an hour, yes I would make mistakes, but it still provided a learning experience and allowed me to continue despite these mistakes. The ‘life’ system is prompting you not to continue with your practice, which can be discouraging. The wait time for even on of the five lives is very lengthy, and I don’t want to wait such a long time just to make a simple error and have to restart my lesson the next day. Other than these two problems, Duolingo is an exceptional app that allows for in-depth learning, with lessons that include not only reading, but pronouncing the language, and conversing with others. The streak keeps you from skipping practicing, and gives you motivation. Altogether, Duolingo is a great app, not to mention it’s free, which is a plus considering it’s competition, and it’s content.

Pretty good. While I love the lessons Duolingo offers, I don’t like some of the phrases used. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had a lesson where someone is describing another person’s grandmother as elegant or something. I don’t know if that’s very realistic in normal conversation, but at least I know elegante better than any other word now. I also LOATHE the constant attempts to upsell me for gems. I don’t get on Duolingo to compete with anyone or try to win trophies. I already pay for the plus subscription because I’m trying to take my learning seriously. I know it won’t make me conversational, but I’m trying to build a good foundation. Constantly being asked about leveling up to the next league, getting more points, and trying to get me to buy gems frustrates me. I just want to learn. I don’t want any stupid gems. All in all, the lessons are fun. I just hate the competitive nature of the app because I’m not that type of person. It has the opposite effect on me and makes me feel discouraged because the app keeps sending me to the demotion zone. I don’t even know how these other people are getting over 1,000 XP in a week’s time, but I guess good for y’all. You win. If you want a good laugh, check out their TikTok account though. It’s really funny. That’s actually what made me want to get the subscription at the beginning of this year.

It gud m8. Duolingo is really helping me! The only unfortunate thing is that it will never, and exactly n e v e r make you fluent. It mostly teaches you what you NEED to know. Like Vowels, Letters, Greetings; stuff like that. It won’t make you fluent, especially since studies say you need fluent speakers around you to BE fluent, but it is helping me read some stuff. I recommend it! It makes language learning fun, and actually feels kinda sorta like a game. The art style is cute as heck, and Duo really makes you want to learn ( especially by giving helpful reminders) Now the only important thing you can do, Is actually study. Now I know a lot of you aren’t that dumb to believe “you can learn a language by studying 5 minutes a day!” But in all words, study at least 40 minutes to actually learn something, and keep that daily streak- not just for fun, but for learning reasons.... If you keep it up, you probably be a good ( but not at all fluent) Language Learner! It really depends on you. Summing it all up, Duolingo is really helpful! Making things fun sure does help, but understand it’s not all that and a bag of potato chips. You need to LEARN, but even if you do make that a rule in your life, it’s not gonna completely solve your language problemos. I’d give it a 4/5 for teaching you the language pretty well, making it a priority, and it being fun. (And we must not forget that Duo is making that a priority..)

Verge of being a Great App. I love the idea and practicality of this app. The amount of languages available and how you utilized learning these languages is really remarkable. If you added more dynamics in immersive learning this app would be amazing. However, I’m experiencing some difficulties with using your app that’s severely hindering me from learning the language. One, if your going to teach a language make sure the building blocks that you’re using for the language are all there. I’m currently trying to learn Japanese and your skipping through so many characters in hiragana. Then, before I even grasp hiragana you throw katakana in the mix using actual words with those characters before teaching the characters themselves. Your program is so sporadic and because of this it’s crippling my future progress. And two, your lessons. Five levels of doing the same exact thing, not fun at all, or productive. Level one should be teaching the new material. As the learner progresses by going up in level, old material should be thrown into the mix subtly with each level. Then, by level 5 you’re doing it all. You’ve not only learned the new material but established the old material as well... I just see a lot of potential in this app but it feels like you've bit off more than you can chew with all these languages. If Japanese has such a sporadic program how many others are the same way.

Duolingo is cool. I don’t use Duolingo since that long but family and friends recommended it and I found out it’s really easy to learn a language with Duolingo because it gives you exactly the words and sentences you have to know when you’re in the country so you can actually talk to people around the world and it’s also fun and playful sometimes and the greatest thing about it all is not just that you learn a whole bunch of new things every time you do Duolingo but you also start finding things out about cultures of different languagesAnd you always push you want to complete the challenge of learning a new language and I always tell you that you are good and that you’re learning more every day I just love doing Duolingo and with the day language learning streak it always makes me want to do it every day and that gets you into a hole habit of wanting to learn a language not just because you want to be able to speak a little language and to talk with people around the world but also that it gives you the feeling that you are actually achieving something which is such a good feeling so I would definitely recommend Duolingo warmly it’s also very nice for kids because it’s also fun and playful but also teaches you as much as you need to know to be really deep in a language

I LOVE this app and here’s why:. A large reason I admire Duolingo because it’s amazing at explaining mistakes and getting you out of bad habits. But I also love it because if you didn’t understand why you got something wrong (or right,) you can click a little speech bubble icon above and to the right of “continue”, and people who are also learning Spanish at the same level as you can comment and explain why something is correct or incorrect. (Which has been a huge help for me). But I think people who are reviewing Duo miss the little things that make all the difference. I’ve never seen anybody comment about the EXTREMELY beautiful, and diverse characters that cheer you on in the corner. It makes learning a language a rewarding experience. Also, I’m sure kids would appreciate when you finish a lesson, you get XP and gems. The XP helps you level up, and the gems build up so you can customize the little green owl mascot (Duo). Now, really: I can’t say enough how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE this app. But this is my last reason why in case my first 3 weren’t convincing enough. Duolingo is motivating. You earn achievements if you practice on the weekends and if you get a certain amount of XP. I’ve even gotten one for reading a short story (provided in the app). This app really is just so special. And Developer, if you see this: Thank you.

My One Issue. I love duolingo! I really feel like it makes learning a new language entertaining and it's nice to be able to learn at a pace I am comfortable with. Honestly there is only one problem I have with it and it is how XP boosts work. You can earn XP boosts as a reward for daily quests, or by opening the Early Bird chest, which I think is a great way to encourage people to keep learning. However, I find it very annoying that when you earn an XP boost it is immediately applied, and you have to grind lessons right then and there to make any use of it. Sometimes I am simply checking a notification or where I am in the league, or simply fitting in a quick lesson between tasks, and I am not able to make use of the XP boost in the time given. I think it would be much more efficient for the consumer to be able to hold onto XP boosts, in an inventory or something like that, and decide for themselves when to use them. I understand that them being implied immediately is most likely to encourage them to use the app for longer, but it is an inconvenience and makes me feel like my work towards the reward went to waste. It is not a major issue so of course I still rate five stars, I just wish that it was made so I cod get better use out of the boost.

Great app! A few small problems.... The majority of the functions on this app are great! I love using it and it motivates me to learn. It makes learning a new language fun and simple and is free with very few ads. Honestly, the only things I don’t like are the number of emails I get saying to practice, upgrade to the paid version, and get the company’s other apps. I tried switching emails off in the app‘ store settings but it didn’t work... plus, sometimes I forget to check my email, causing these emails to pile up and me to miss important notifications that get buried under them. The other thing I don’t like is the submit button. It is big and right next to the delete button so sometimes I will be typing or deleting a mistake and will accidentally submit my answer. On a skill test, this can cause me to fail. There is a “report problem” button, but it doesn’t have an “I wasn’t done” option. It should have one. I understand people could cheat on the skill tests this way, but that could be avoided by not counting the question as a question if it was marked that way, instead ignoring it and adding another question. So I know I mostly just complained, but Duolingo is actually a great app and if it weren’t for these small problems it would be perfect. It is a great way of learning a language and everyone should use it. Plus, it’s free and there are barely any adds:)

It’s okay. Great app and great concept. It would be nice if instead of always saying a sentence in Spanish and having us type the answer in Spanish, having just type the English translation instead. So we get in the habit of translating back-and-forth if that makes sense. Also it would be GREAT to be able to turn off the written version of the spoken language and just listening and translating. There isn’t a transcript in real life. I want it to be more challenging or at least the option. The lessons become very repetitive though. Charging 400 coins to skip is GREEDY when you give like 5 a day for meeting your goal. That would mean it would take about three months to gain as many coins as it takes to skip. How convenient when you charge for coins? Also the “practice”health option when you run out is supposed to test you on weak skills but it throws in word you NEVER learned. For example I’m in the clothing section for Spanish, before the people section which i assume has feelings, and they asked me the words for tired and fun. I have neither learned either. How is that practice??? and Also sometimes you recognize typos and sometimes you don’t. . The conversation feature is AMAZING but putting it directly between level one and zero is highly frustrating. Have me do the conversation once i learn the words, at the end of the module. Have a conversation with words i don’t know does nothing but confuse me.

Great App. The language I’m learning is French. I’ve used other language learning apps(Mondly, Babbel) at the same time as a comparison to see which one was the simplest to use, which one taught me the fastest, which one was the the most user friendly, which one allowed me to learn for free(not just a teaser) which one allowed me at my skill level to continue to learn without overwhelming me with advanced practice sessions. Duolingo by far best out the competition in all of the above. Mondly is good but requires you to be more advanced from the start. Babbel is very limited until you start to pay. Duolingo is as advertised, mostly free, very enjoyable to use, definitely teaches you through repetition and introducing you to new sounds and rules of the language you are learning at the correct pace. Only thing I didn’t like is since the update a little while ago is that they introduced cartoon characters (people and animals) with speech bubbles, showing a religious person (male and female Muslim). I would rather it stay neutral and use cartoon animals. Religious categories have no place in a language app. (I don’t want to see a priest or Buddhist monk either) If it bothered me, I’m sure others are bothered too. And I know some people will be shocked that I commented on this, hence why I say, keep the cartoons to something neutral like animals

Worth it.. All I have to say is this, I’m in my second year of Spanish one in college, and I’ve been on this app for less than a month and already remember more than my first semester of Spanish one. I think where schools lack at teaching Spanish or any language, is that they don’t make it fun or interesting. For instance in the first part of this, I read four stories. One is about a woman who thinks she’s lost her keys. When her partner asks if she wants coffee she is so tired that she puts salt in her coffee. I thought it was hilarious. Because I’ve done it. The second one was about grandmother wanted to get bread from the store and then her granddaughter was like oh I need this but I need also you know bananas and apples and oranges (I am paraphrasing here) and then the grandma told her grandchild to how about you go cause I only need one item. My favorite was the same sex relationship, which makes LGBTQ inclusive in the education. Which colleges do not do. Also I enjoy the fact that every cartoon character is a different ethnicity which also makes diversity inclusive when using this app. The point of learning a foreign language is to learn about the culture, the way to speak it and to understand it. And overall accept differences. Dulingo has come a long way in my opinion and it’s worth it if you apply yourself.

This app is great, only a few details left.... I have been using this app and it feels very good to be learning a few more languages. But I want to tell you guys about a few things that have given most of us a few flaws... (1.) Recharging your hearts takes so much time! Like 5 hrs. ! ( Ok I hope you don’t think I’m being mean to you, but let’s go on...) (2.) I really appreciated you guys teaming up with Rovio, the creators of angry birds, you guys actually made a great team together with them. I hope maybe someday you guys can team up with them again someday... Note to self: I haven’t been playing angry birds for like more than 3 days. Man it’s been months since you guys worked together with Rovio. And last but not least... (3.) When I was trying to finish my Spanish lesson I failed, and then the crying duo showed up and the music of failure actually scared me a little bit... But instead of the crying duo, how about this new picture with him doing some weight lifts and the music a little bit more happier, but the more you fail, the worse the music and the picture is. If you fail on a test, you could put duo saying, “Don’t worry! You did your best, better luck next time!” And with that my friends, my explanation is done. Thanks for your consideration and I hope you guys can keep up the good work. ;)

Almost fluent with help of another app. I’m currently learning Spanish and French and don’t get me wrong Duolingo is good but it’s not great. The Spanish can sometimes be inaccurate same with French. It is very annoying to keep with a streak and do yourself a favor and DONT turn on notifications. The notifications are very annoying and tell you to extend your streak even when you’ve done a lesson a few hours ago. Other than these complaints Duolingo is very good and it is better than other language learning apps I have tried but an extremely close second is one of my favorites called drops. Other ones I have tried include babble, hellotalk, Falou and drops. (And obviously Duolingo) Drops and Duolingo have been my all time favorite despite the complaints; but hey nothings perfect. My sister took Spanish and French in high school and college for all four years and is fluent, she became a teacher and recommended drops for me but then told me she looked into Duolingo and said “ I personality prefer drops for Spanish and to get a basic lesson on French, but to advance your skill in speaking French you can do Duolingo and drops.” I trusted her and with the help of drops and Duolingo I’m almost speaking Spanish and thanks to drops got a good grip on my foundation of French! Again the one I highly recommend beside Duolingo is 100% Drops.

My 3 years with Duo. French, Spanish, German modules. Very Good: for beginners. The pronunciations seem excellent. The speaking exercises are ‘usually’ good at catching one’s pronunciation flaws (best feature imho). The beta feature audio group discussion seemed potentially great before they ended it. The scripted dialogue exercises were decent, they got rid of those as well. Quite bad: I’ve had to resort to searching for explanations on my own, which seems ridiculous given Duo could implement error look up tables that push relevant explanations onto the module GUI - for mistakes within every grammar exercise. Otherwise it’s a tedious workbook that pushes only the correct answer, nothing else. Matching exercises are timed even if you use paid version, and worse yet is that one can’t add words. They’ll typically be a bizarre mixture of beginner with some you’ve rarely seen. Since the company went public perhaps they’re focusing more on engaging user eyeball time (for adverts) versus learning (?) Overall: I’ve learned a lot, especially as a beginner. However, the amount of time required to get through intermediate levels versus how much more I’d learn in class or with a tutor is a negative. Classes and tutors can be prohibitively expensive so I’ve continued with duo. Mostly I still appreciate the ‘side features’ of pronunciation, listening, and sometimes the stories.

Good, but could be better. I was doing one of the lessons and I got something wrong. It was missing a letter. Okay, I could understand that. Then I went to the next part and it said that the way I did it before was right, even though before it said I was wrong. I was confused, but I moved on to a couple more. I got another one wrong doing it the way it said it was right before, and I got a little bit frustrated. I had to go and use up ALL of my gems to get more hearts. Then I went back to that lesson, determined to get it right. It only then told me that the translation was different between males and females, and that’s why I got it wrong. It would be nice if right before they have you do problems like that if they would tell you the difference and then let you do the problem. It would also be nice if they refilled your hearts daily. Yesterday when I logged out I had two hearts. Today I came back and I had three. I originally thought that they refilled daily because that would only make sense. But no, either you get the plus package to get your hearts back or you spend 350 to 450 gems to get them back. I am really enjoying Duolingo, I just think that it would be a way better experience if they improved on these things.

Great for beginners, poor for advanced learners. For learning brand new languages, Duolingo is by far THE BEST app you could ever hope for!! 👏😍 I am learning Japanese, which I have dreamed of learning for as long as I can remember, and now it's coming true!!! 😱 But why I don't give the 5 stars is that the 'Placement Test' does not give accurate results. English is my first language, and I was in French Immersion from age 5 to age 11(SEVEN years) I consider myself bilingual but because its been awhile since elementary school i forgot a lot. But I still don't speak the language fluently. So I thought I'd use Duolingo to strengthen my knowledge and vocabulary of the language. I took the Placement Test and according to Duolingo I am only 32% fluent in FRENCH! It treats me like I've just begun learning the language >:( I also took the placement test for Spanish which I studied for only ONE year, and Duolingo claims I am 26% fluent! This just isn't logical. 7 years of studying a language vs 1 year is OBVIOUSLY very different! Not an 8% difference 😕 But don't forget I do think Duolingo is FANTASTIC for brand-new language learners 😃 🌏 As I said with my Japanese learning ;)) I am in no way trying to diss Duolingo, I'd just like to see some improvement in the Placement Test, allowing intermediate/advanced learners truly begin Duolingo where they stand. Thanks to anyone who read my rant 😇 ~Danielle
