Duolingo is Apple's iPhone App of the Year!
Duolingo is the world's most popular way to learn languages with over 170 million users.
23 languages to choose from. Super fun and free — Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Irish, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Turkish, Norwegian, Polish, Hebrew, Esperanto, Vietnamese, Ukrainian, Welsh, Greek, Hungarian, Romanian, and Swahili. Oh, and English too.
"Far and away the best language-learning app." —The Wall Street Journal
"Duolingo may hold the secret to the future of education." —TIME Magazine
PC Magazine Editors' Choice for Language Learning: "Among iPhone apps for learning or practicing a language, you can't beat Duolingo."
"The most productive means of procrastination I’ve ever discovered. The short lesson blocks are painless and peppy, and reaching the next level (and then the level after that) becomes addictive." —Slate
Duolingo is changing the way people learn languages.
With Duolingo, you learn a language for free. You have fun while you learn, leveling up and competing with friends.
Yeah, it's pretty sweet.
The applications Duolingo - Learn Spanish, French and more was published
in the category Education on 2012-11-13 and
was developed by Duolingo.
The file size is 86.31 MB.
The current version is 5.1.3 and works well on
8.0 and high ios versions.
Bug fixes and performance improvements.
Wish you had better explanation of subject verb agreement and things like that. If you are new to the language it will be hard to become fluent or even have a strong feel for the language but it is fun and good for vocabulary
Punishing new learners with the Health feature is counterproductive. You should not be punished for TRYING, for making an attempt. I'm not interested in this pay-to-play update. Also, the option to watch an advertisement in order to gain health reminds me of every freemium game I've ever played. The actual language learning capacity of the app has changed as well- you now have to adjust the keyboard on your device to accommodate your needs as the accent marks and characters Duolingo previously provided are nowhere to be seen. I want the old Duolingo back. The one with the tools you actually need to do the exercises (accent marks, etc) and that prioritizes learning a language (including the many necessary mistakes!) over making a buck.
Well I would like this app but I have to sign in a protfolio and I dont want to please fix app
I wish there was room for going beyond the current level of language learning. I finished Russian and Swedish really quickly, and then was just stuck reviewing all the easy stuff over and over again.
Figure it out Duo Lingo. Just won't use it if you expect me to pay for coins or whatever want to call those things. Didn't think this was an iPhone "game."
First app that isn't trying to rip you off after the first lesson .. Totally worth it !! Download it and start studying now !
Best app for learning that I've found ... just amazing ... I've learned French and Portuguese with this app. Highly recommend it !!!!!
I luv this app. It's an easy and fun way to learn languages, I am learning spanish and greek I was really starting to enjoy this app when I realized.... Greek doesn't have bots!!! Why? Spanish has bots and its a nice way to help me speak spanish better But why can't i learn to speak greek better? Greek doesn't have bots but spanish does and its not fair to those who are learning greek. Please fix this tiny issue and i will give this app 5 stars! Other than this small issue.....i love this app, Oh! And one more thing.......add latin please Thanks for understanding
It can't be better. It's teaching me Italian and it's much better than what I expected.
I am taking French in school, and this is helping me stay refreshed during the summer. I'm also absorbing a lot of new information. Merci!
I've been away from Duolingo for a while now, and decided to start again today. It used to be amazing! There was a time I was learning three languages at once, and signed in every day. I never asked them to make it free, but that was a big bonus. I would have, and still would, pay good money to have an app like that. Oh, how far this app has fallen. "Gems", health bars, sign-in prompts, micro transactions... Disgusting money grab. Now they are getting greedy. Fortunately, the app is not very enticing anymore. Deleted.
We loved this app before. It was a great way to review or introduce yourself to a language. My son has Aspergers and is getting ready for German next year. Thought this would be a good way to get him ahead of the curve. But he gets SO frustrated when he makes mistakes and loses his lives. If he makes a mistake, he's out! Also, he will sometimes say the correct thing and it states he's wrong, when he's not and then he loses lives! Not cool at all!! And then having to pay $5 each time you want to move on, not cool. Can you just make a version where you pay for more, but a one time fee?
I just want to learn Spanish, and it's kind of ridiculous that you lose health for missing questions. I missed a few in a couple sections and now I can't move on!! Might as well just take a free online class for Spanish now. I used to love this app, but this update is horrible.
Used to be an amazing app. It's far from ideal for actually learning a language but it was fun. Now we have stars instead of lingots, and IAPs. Stay away!
I used to love this game. But now they added adds and health. I could barely get through a tough level, and I only had two health bars left, so could not get through a level. Plus, now adds keep on popping up out of nowhere like on those other stupid apps. I'd rather that you go back to the way things used to be. When you do, I will rate this game five stars again. This update ruined the whole game.
I used to love Duolingo. Practice once per day? I used to practice all day because learning another language was fun through Duolingo and I felt it sticking in my head. But after coming back and realizing this Health meter runs the game, I'm frustrated to no end. Failing IS learning, but this system penalizes failure. Also sometimes the app glitches and I'm forced to guess because a new lesson isn't giving me the definitions and then I lose Health points. We just want to learn!
I loved using duolingo on my laptop, and needed a more portable version to keep my skills sharp when I had free time throughout the day. This is perfect. Everything that dumb game apps do to try to hook you-points, health bars, push notifications-this app does, except instead crushing candy endlessly like a zombie, it is using those triggers to make you smarter! I highly recommend this as a counterpart to the desktop, but not the sole tool. The platforms teach and reinforce lessons in slightly different ways, so it's worth the two-pronged approach. Also, if you're frustrated with health bars, gems or anything of the sort, none of that exists on the desktop version.
This is an excellent learning tool, and I would gladly purchase a subscription for unlimited, ad-free, and offline access. However, the recent monetization efforts are very ill-considered.
Duolingo was once amazing, but is now horrible due to payment system. What happened to Duolingo Being free education? Update is greedy and horrible
Use it anywhere, which is great.
