Language Learning In Bite Sized Pieces 5/5
While this app can certainly bring you to fluency, when paired with other supplements it shines the most. You can be taking a course at school or online for a language, but you can really understand the intricacies of a language with this app.
By Alexander Pendragon
Decent language learning app. It doesn't really help you get conversational, but it's a great introduction to a language. The app does have a "Bots" section that is SUPPOSED TO allow you to interact more naturally with the words you learn, but it only allows a very few words to choose from. It basically forces you to guess the response that the programmer had in mind when writing it. Of course you can always give up and press the help button, but then you don't earn any points for that response. Very frustrating.
Love the app. 5/5
The app is a great learning tool. It's a good portable resource for learning a new language.
Amazing but.. 5/5
I really love this app but I wish it had more languages to choose from like Korean, Arabic or mandarin.
Effective and Fun 5/5
This is the most fun I've ever had learning foreign languages. Set your own pace, and it tells you if you've reached your daily goal or not. Automatically takes you back to review old material to make sure you remember it. The pace is gradual, but not dumbed down. I've actually tackled a couple of languages I've been putting off. For the price, you should definitely give it a try.
Love love love it!! 5/5
Most engaging and enjoyable way I have found so far to learn Spanish. Kid friendly too!
By Endless Ike
Makes learning a language fun. A few gripes (1) the speech recognition is not good; (2) the practice reminders are not useful if they can't be customized. Why can't I do this from the app!
Great and fun way to learn 5/5
By The impaulsive
The only thing I would do differently is add a few more (and/or more detailed) explanations behind the reasons and rules of the grammar. (In my case it's in German). That might just be because I like linguistics though 🤓
Great App 5/5
This app is greatly you can do so much and learn tons of new languages
No Japanese smh
So far so good 5/5
By DSC Cusumer
If you are looking for a quick and cheap way to learn a language, then this is the app!! I have learned a lot in just a few days. Check it out people. It's free!!
great app if you are not a total beginner 4/5
fun and easy to use would be difficult if you did not know the grammar rules of the language beforehand
App keeps crashing, can't practice 1/5
Please try to fix the problem, the app keeps crashing. It had been I while since I last practiced in the app. I tried opening the app today and it keeps crashing for every redo exercise , strengthen, every lesson and every practice, nothing is working at all! Please fix it😢
I really like this app 5/5
It's a great app and really easy to use you guys did a wonderful job in it I was wondering if you guys could add another language (Choctaw) I've been wanting to learn it if you guys could do that would be nice.
Love love love! 5/5
This app is amazing, it has helped me with my Spanish so much, and it's free! If I had to complain about anything though, it would be that I wished the app had a way to pull up a table of the vocabulary you learned with the different conjugations. Otherwise amazing app!
Good app 5/5
Good app for learning English 👍👍
DuoLingo for Spanish works well 5/5
A friend recommended DuoLingo to me as she knew I was traveling to South America soon. Their lessons are well-thought out and offer an easy way to start learning a language. I like doing the 10 minute daily exercises that are emailed to me.
Can't believe it's free! It's very good!!
Japanese option is not very helpful 2/5
I want to learn Japanese, and I tried to get the Japanese option and it said "you should only download this option if you already speak Japanese". Sorry, but how is this helpful to new learners? I appreciate the app, but Japanese is the only language I am interested in.
Love the app!! But... 1/5
Last night my streak freeze was activated however this morning it says my 271 day streak is over and I shouldn't have to pay to get my streak back.

Can't be Beat 5/5
Duolingo is one of those things that really makes you grateful to live in the age of technology. It's powerful, easy, and free. I really can't say enough good things about this app. There's nothing else like it.
Studying languages in college? USE THIS FIRST. 5/5
If I could give this app 7 or 8 stars I would.
I've been using Duolingo since 2013, when I was a junior in undergrad. My college didn't offer many of the languages I wanted to study, so I was trying to learn Turkish and Russian, as well as French (which I didn't have time to take formally) on my own and via practice with friends. I continued doing Duolingo French for a few years and can now read academic texts with little difficulty, despite having no formal experience studying the language. But that's not what I want to tell you about. Here's the important part:
Duolingo Turkish came out in the spring of 2015, the year I graduated and began grad school at UT-Austin. Over spring and summer breaks of that year, I completed the Duolingo Turkish course. This course put me at such a high level that when I took my language exam at UT, I tested into the second-year course, despite having no formal experience. My ability to test into a Turkish class this way gave me the necessary coursework to apply for (and receive) a FLAS Fellowship to Istanbul in the summer of 2016. While I was in Istanbul, I also completed the Russian course that came out late 2015, which allowed me to reach a high enough level of proficiency that I am now auditing a second-year, second-semester Russian course at UT. I couldn't have done any of that without Duolingo, and I owe the green owl a major debt of gratitude.
So if you want to study a language in college and Duolingo has it, USE DUOLINGO FIRST! It'll help immensely in developing necessary grammar structures for getting into higher classes so you can worry less about complicated grammar and focus more on confident speaking skills (since, admittedly, that is one of Duolingo's biggest weaknesses). It'll also help for applying to scholarships, since it'll show people that you're independently motivated to learn the languages. Take it from me--I got FLAS last year, and I'm going to Tajikistan on CLS this summer.
In conclusion, why are you still reading this? Start using Duolingo right now if you haven't already! You won't regret it!
I love this!
I adore this app! 5/5
I'm on my 3rd language, I absolutely Love this app. It is interactive and makes learning another language fun.
This app is so incredible I don't know what else to say. Normally apps leave you feeling short changed and begging for more. This is not the case for Duolingo. It's wonderful and diverse and fun and interactive. It's amazing. I don't know what else to say. I love it and I think my French is really getting better.
Merci bien Duolingo.
So helpful!!! I love the different ways you learn a new language, it makes me remember what I learn better than any other technique I've tried!!! And for being free, the quality is unbelievable!!!
By Julie Devine
Great app learning a lot
Makes learning fun 5/5
By Janet Seattle
I am learning Dutch while my daughter is learning Italian. We are both having a great time picking up Duolingo whenever we have a few minutes. Now we just need to start planning that trip to Europe!
Surprisingly...Fun and easy LEARNING 5/5
I never thought I could learn 3 languages at once but this app makes the lessons stick in my brain while being deceptively easy and short each day. I'm amazed!! Well done!
By PinkFloyd: Best band ever
Great app. Very easy to follow!
Can't put it down. No seriously, it's becoming a problem. 5/5
This app is simple and eerily addictive.
Duo Lingo 5/5
This app is incredible!!, I have been able to relearn so much in 2 weeks which would have usually taken me almost a month to learn. And not only that but it forces you to go back and redo lessons to stay sharp. So over all, this is definitely a 5 star app.
Duolingo will not allow email notifications to be easily turned off.
Super fun, but 2 annoying thing 4/5
I love this app. It makes learning super fun. The first thing that is super annoying is how you have lives and if you use them up then you have to wait a few hours till you can redo a lesson. The other annoying thing is the spelling when you have to write out what the person said. I get that you should learn how to spell some words but I find it annoying then you misspell and use up your life.
Best way to practice a language 5/5
One of the best appstore apps of all time!
I love it!!! 5/5
