It really helps.. 5/5
It really helps and honestly is better than Rosetta Stone. I am going to China in a couple years and would love to learn to speak Chinese decently. It would be great if you added it. UPDATE: YESSSS THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ADDING CHINESE!!
Aplicación super amigable la recomiendo 100%
By Derpy dawg
This is an amazing app. However, keep in mind that THIS IS NOT MEANT TO BE USED ALONE. It's great for daily practice, but not so great for entire languages. If you're already taking a class for a language, this is the app for you!
Amazing just.... 5/5
I was wondering how to remove a language ..after selecting it by mere mistake cuz I can’t do it ...n couldn’t find delete anywhere???
A request. 4/5
Please. Arabic for English Speakers. It’s an important language for people to learn (if not fluently, at least some key words and phrases).
Overall, I really enjoy the app. It's really helped me learn and retain Spanish. However, I have a real issue with the updates. Every time there's an update, I have to basically start from the beginning, I've lost my place, my gems, lingots (or whatever the point system now is), and it's nearly impossible to sign back in.
Please stop. It's really frustrating when I'm trying to learn and it feel like I'm being thwarted. Also, stop signing me out.
Duolingo: Fun & Effective 5/5
I love Duolingo. I took two years of Spanish in high school and always wanted to become proficient. Now, many years later, I am retired and love working through the lessons and practicing conversations with the “Bots”. It is a fun program, and just as important, I can work at my own pace-reviewing a lesson as many times as I want. I have recommended it to many people.
New course 5/5
I’m having fun learning Spanish, but I wish there was a course to learn Latin.
PLEASE READ. 2/5
By Juicy Watermelon
Over all, this app is great. You can learn so many languages! I downloaded the app 2 days ago and I am currently 20% fluent in French. But, I have a complaint. If there are people in this world that want to download your app, then they will to learn a language. UNTIL they find out that when you run out of “lives” you have none, and you have to wait 3 freaking hours for 5 hearts. ITS STUPID! If you want people to learn a language, they should be able to learn it without anyone stopping them! In this case, “anyone” is those stupid lives. Take them away and I would rate this 5 stars and recommend it to my friends.
Duolingo review 4/5
By sloth lover 123
It really is a great app. It has helped me a lot with learning Spanish, although I'm not 100% fluent yet, I hope I can also learn many more languages with this app too. Of course I am a fan of this app, although it has some bugs. Although it only has one bug, I have been reporting it, and eventually I'm sure they will get to it, but it's probably going to mess with me learning Spanish for a while. Even though there is only one bug the app is super recommendable.
Thank you for your time and I hope you consider using this free app 'cause it's really a great, easy, and fun way to learn a different language.
It’s ok 3/5
Ok so yes I do like this app but it takes 4 hours for 1 health bar and I think it should be 2 hours for the whole health
I'm Doing It Right!!! 3/5
Every time I'm typing to translate from Spanish to English, I type in the correct translation and when the little flag thing pops up it tells me I typed in the wrong translation but when it shows the correct translation it shows the same thing I originally typed in, but it's telling me I got it wrong. P.S: this happened after the update. PLEASE FIX!!!!!!😖😖😖
Wish it had Amharic 3/5
This is very useful if you want to learn Spanish, but would be better if it taught Amharic because a lot of language learning apps do not teach Amharic for free. If you type Amharic in the Apple Store search bar, there are only five free apps that allow you to learn Amharic but the apps are not as good as Duolingo. Amharic is the second most spoken Semitic language worldwide next to Arabic. It would be useful for me because my maternal side is from Ethiopia. In fact, Ethiopia is the only African country that has not been colonized by European nations.
Mr James Luper 5/5
By Captain Jimmy V
The best app ever. The only problem I see is when I get something wrong the correct answer covers my wrong answer so I can’t see the wrong answer.
Health system problematic 1/5
By Jumbo log
In its current form Duolingo is not recommended. The health system discourages use and tries to continually pressure you into buying health. There are too many mistakes and glitches in the program to feel good about spending money on this app. I have repeated tried to type in the same word that is the correct translation and then it says it is wrong and takes health away incorrectly. Very frustrating to use.
Love it 5/5
This app is sooooo cool. It really helps you learn Spanish and makes it fun. It’s also really nice because it’s free! I just truly recommend it
By A Smike Fan
Did you actually expect people to be okay with needing “health” to learn a new language?! Come on.
Great app 5/5
By Marisa May
This app is amazing👌🏽. It is free, yet it is so helpful with learning languages! It is very easy to use, helps you remember to brush up on skills you have already learned, and helps you learn so much of a new language. It has the perfect combination of listening, reading, and comparison exercises. I would definitely recommend it to anyone! ¡Es increíble!
Greedy greedy greedy developer 1/5
$10/month and there are still micro transactions to regain health.
I totally get that developing and maintaining the app cost real money, and I am ok with subscriptions or micro transactions.....but not both.
Also there seem to be two completely different versions of this app out there.
I have the app on my phone and the in app currency is lingots (there are no micro transactions or health bars to worry about)
My partner has the app on his phone and his in app currency is gems (which cost real world money) and he has a health bar that is reduced by each mistake he makes. After 5 mistakes he must wait for the health bar to replenish or use gems ($$$) to refill it.
Both of us are subscribed to Duolingo Plus ($10/month)
Both of us are using the most recent version of the app from the AppStore.
I really like the version of the app that does not use micro transactions, and would be very happy to continue paying $10/month for it, but if this is the direction the developer is taking the app I will cancel the subscription and delete the app.
Epic way to learn 5/5
This app when fully used greatly helps to learn French. I moved to France not knowing anything about the language and this app was my best friend. When you use all the features and are consistent about using it daily it makes a hug difference. Right now I’m hooked on the bot conversations because it helps me develop my french texting skills.
Very useful review tool 4/5
I really like this app, however it should not be used to learn a language, but to review or refresh your memory on what you already know. Since I took Spanish in high school, it has been very helpful in refreshing my memory on the subject. Thank you, Duolingo.
By Crown Ether
I cannot tell you all how much this app is helping me. If you have children get them use to using this app. It’ll go along way to a head start and or improving linguistic skills. Great for brain developing.
I love it! 5/5
I have fallen in love with Duolingo it’s a great way to learn a new language for free! I write everything down in a notebook like notes so I can study! You’re the best app I’ve downloaded.
Great concept that works 5/5
I don’t usually write reviews, but I just have to say how useful this app has been for me. There’s no place near me that offers Danish courses, and I’ve learned a lot more using this than I expected to.
Love it 5/5
I love this app. It helps allot. I would recommend it to anyone but I would also recommend to the creator of this program when you are learning a new language put new words up front before putting them in a sentence.
It’s ok 2/5
When I got this app I was exited but then I saw that the app has the energy bar blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
One minor bug 5/5
Please add some other languages. Like Tagalog, Greek, and some others. Thanks
VERY unhappy with paid version 1/5
I decided to do the paid version of this app assuming I would no longer be punished for making mistakes, but I am still stopped every time I run out of “health” and not allowed to move forward with the lesson until some time has gone by. I did not purchase this to play a game, I purchased it to learn Spanish. I feel the app is inhibiting that process. I certainly will NOT renew after this month. There are plenty of competitive apps to chose from. I also was trying to find an email address to launch a complaint, but there is no way to talk to customer service.
New "Health" feature signals the end of this Apps popularity 1/5
By Auto Feather
The app has gone from one of the best in the market to frustratingly unusable.
The developers will, without question, regret this new approach.
The “health” feature impedes your progress after you make mistakes unless you either buy “More Life” or go back and review ridiculously fundamental lessons that you’ve already learned thoroughly, resulting in a monumental waste of time.
Every time you update the app, expect the annoying ads to get worse.
Please help 4/5
I would have given this app 4 and half stars but it won't let me give the half. So just starting today I did my French went over to my Italian lessons and when I finished my Italian lessons I tried to go back to French and it would show the loading the screen then a black screen and it would kick me out of the app. I've turned my phone on and off, cleared my cache, and I updated the app and it still won't go to French. Can y'all please fix it? Thank y'all so much for reading this and if y'all fix it thank y'all so much for fixing it!!
Duo lingo 5/5
A wonderful app!!
A great to learn new languages 5/5
I moved to the United States 2 years ago without knowing and English, and this really helped me, but after fluently speaking English, I thought I would stop, but now I’m also learning French and German, and it’s just very fun to communicate with more people, all because of this app!
Awesome app!! 5/5
Great app. I’m learning so much.
A really good app 5/5
This is a really good app but I’m still stuck on the lingots because now I don’t even HAVE lingots and now in Portuguese there is no lingots so I can’t dress the owl ( I forgot the name)so now it’s just boring.
There are many different languages to learn but they don’t have any charts to help you learn the different words. They only tell you what words mean and not how to use them. Such as in Spanish the words Ser and Esta
What about Arabic for English speakers? 1/5
Why is there no Arabic for English speakers? I saw online that it is one of the most demanded courses for years now! Any plans on making this course??
I love this app but the one thing they should add is unlimited health. It’s annoying when I am trying to learn spanish quickly and it say please wit one hour and you’ll get another life. So in total you would have to wait 5 to 6 hours just for all your life back. If you want to learn quick then I don’t recommend this app. It helps very much but this is one feature I hate. Another feature I hate is when you lose all you lives and you have to quit and all your progress is gone. There has been multiple times where I have been halfway done with the lesson and I have no more life. PLEASE ADD INFINITE LIFE!!! This would make learning faster, but also not losing all of our progress would be very nice and helpful. Gracias!
Sorry about the long review,
At least I think that’s my name on here 🧐
Cool! But... 4/5
By Cupcake Skull
I like all these new updates and all, but could you add Creole? I’m desperate since all my family knows it and I... completely don’t know anything. Help! Please add! I’ll give five stars when you do.
Love it 5/5
It is an excellent app for beginners if you are trying to learn a new language.... AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!!!!!
I had trouble learning Japanese and since my mother is Japanese I wanted to help her around the house and other tasks, one of which is actually speaking it. I could only understand a little bit, but fluently understand it and speak it. Thanks to Duolingo, I can now speak fluent Japanese! Thank you!!
Would not recommend to ANYONE. This app purposely deny’s you correct answers, I don’t know why.
Punishes you for mistakes. 2/5
This could be a the best language app. But they got greedy. If you make 5 mistakes you must stop and wait hours for the your heath to renew before you can continue. UNLESS you PAY for more health!!
They say it’s to help you learn better. Maybe they think everyone is super stupid. It’s clearly about money. Making money is not so bad, but even if we pay monthly for Plus, this ridiculous “learning feature” remains.
The health feature holds you back 1/5
Find another language learning app, they’re adding a health feature so you have to pay to essentially keep going or wait forever to regain health to continue.
Best app ever! 5/5
It's addictive to learn with this app. It turns your alpha mode by learning in a dynamic way.
Loving this app!!! 5/5
I am learning Spanish and French. I love the pace of these lessons.
I love this app!
it really gets you to want to learn more different languages!
Only 1 problem, on Greek basics 1, lesson 1, when it asks “how do you say “the man”” the answer is ο άντρας but it corrects me if I’m wrong, or right!
Too costly for what it is 1/5
By Pene Guapo
Ends up being really expensive due to in app purchases. I recommend downloading google translate as well.
You're penalized for wrong answers. And after around five tries you have to buy your way out of the penalty. A translator should help to circumvent that.
By Makinzie#I Love U
I LOVE that there is almost 100 levels and And a cute little owl!!😍😍😍
I would give this review five stars but I don't know if someone will respond if I do. I was wondering why the Japanese lesson doesn't have the stats bar that says "x percent fluency?" Also I think it would be great if you guys could add the chat bots that you have in the French lesson. I have been learning Japanese for five years and also started learning French on duolingo. I just wish there was the same amount of options on the Japanese as there is in French. (Also jplt quiz would be nice since you guys are doing that for chinese)
Low/high level 2/5
It looks too easy what is supposed to be more complex as I got that option.
