Look forward to the daily excercises 5/5
I'm only just beginning, and making progress. It's a lot easier and more fun than I imagined. Just keep at it.
Me gusta mucho
It's good but... 3/5
The app is good but I think it should have some more languages like American Sign Language.
By Rickey Lahey
Duolingo works hard to provide the most for each language and allows you to replay lessons.
Loving this app 4/5
By Honest Journee
Combining a game with learning a new language is genius. I'm actually having FUN learning this language. It would be great to have an opportunity to practice areas your not learning as well.
Love this app 5/5
This app is the best. My whole family uses it.
Great app! 5/5
This app does a wonderful job of keeping pace and it's fun to learn with!
Health Bar 1/5
By Cooper Schulze l
Really? This was the perfect app but now you’ve ruined it with micro transactions and the dumb health bar which only allows a few mistakes every 5 hours
The best language app out there 5/5
Makes it really easy to learn German. Absolutely love it
Great for beginners 4/5
I love Duolingo! Along with it's other app Tinycards which is a flash card app, it really helped me learn Spanish and now Korean. The only reason it's not a five is that it sometimes teaches you words that are the technical versions, that no one actually says!
But other than that I loved Duolingo and totally recommend.
Performance summary after practice session 3/5
The developers should provide a summary of the user’s performance after he finishes a practice session. It is important for the user to have a clear picture of the mistakes he has made during the practice session.
Not a serious learning tool anymore 1/5
Introduction of health option prevents you successfully from actually learning selected language.
I am looking for other learning options. I need serious learning tool, not an app game.
Not Happy at all 1/5
So I kept running out of health and being prompted to buy more. So I decided to pay the monthly subscription fee to avoid that. However even though now I am paying I am still running out of health and being told I need to buy more.
Great app 5/5
The app is very easy to use and it's a fun way to learn
So good! I can't believe this is free! 5/5
By Susan, Ph.D.
This tool rivals (and often beats) very expensive language learning tools. I love the convenience of having it on my phone.
Definitely Recommend 5/5
It's been years since I last studied Japanese and this app brought me back up to speed quickly. Hoping that they release additional intermediate and advanced levels for Japanese. Really super great for daily reinforcement of basic language skills.
Best App Ever!! 5/5
This is my favorite app of all time. I'm learning more German in 5 minutes a day than I learned taking two years of college courses. Whoever invented this app is either a teacher or should be, because they incorporated effective teaching strategies. I would give this app 10 stars. Thank you, creators of Duolingo!
Not comprehensive 3/5
I took French in school but it's been a few years. I'm using this app to brush up on the language. The teaching style is great, because you practice translating from French to English and also English to French. The activities are quick and fun. The design of the app is appealing and it's easy to use. However, it's not a very thorough explanation. It doesn't explain the verb conjugations, and it actually doesn't even define the verbs...it just throws them at you. There's no lesson at the beginning of each session, so you just sort of have to pick it up as you go. As a refresher, it hasn't been too hard, but if you're using this app to learn a new language, I wouldn't recommend it. I think it would basically be just memorizing phrases for a new learner, instead of understanding how -er verbs end differently than -ir verbs, etc.
Great app for learning French! 5/5
Downloaded this app to brush up on French before traveling abroad. It's been a great refresher course, and I can't wait to try a new language as well!
Excellent app 5/5
I enjoy using Duolingo to augment my regular German courses. Duolingo is an excellent app!
It makes learning languages super easy and fun. It’s actually addicting, much more than a game app, because of the tangible reward of learning a new language. I use it to learn Esperanto, German and Portuguese and to improve my fluency in French and Spanish.
Best thing about the app is it's very smart. It makes me want to go back every day and continue my practice.
One issue 1/5
By Hi Swdjj
The app locked me out while I was trying to sign in
Lag + lost lessons 3/5
Last version is very slow. I finished a lesson, waited two minutes and nothing happened. After restarting the app, the lesson was lost 👏🏼👏🏼🍾 why?????
Easy, fast and thorough 5/5
I am using Duolingo to learn Italian for a trip I will be taking next year. It is helping me to learn Frases that I will use when I am over there. The repetition really helps. I am amazed at how fast I am learning the language. I highly recommend this program it is wonderful and it's free!
Really frustrating sometimes 3/5
Your app is great for vocabulary and very basic language functionality but why can't you include a feature explaining grammar rules and when/why they're being used? It gets very irritating when there are a few random situations that use different grammar structures and I don't get any explanation as to why my answer is incorrect. It is not effective to just show the correct answer and not explain, I will not truly learn whatever rule is supposed to be followed. Also recently it will give me an incredibly difficult prompt that I have never seen before and is dissimilar to anything I've practiced before. How am I supposed to answer these questions correctly? They don't help me learn, please do away with them
It's really good 5/5
I'm learning Russian
This app makes learning a new language fun and easy.
Great Lessons 5/5
I look forward to my Spanish lessons. Thank you 💝
Good app, but feels desperate for money 3/5
One of the best educational apps out there. I recommend it to everyone. However, I have a few issues: It's hard to click the X on the advertisements, which appear after every lesson. Losing health on the German app is easy, for example typing brot instead of Brot was wrong, and I was asked to translate words I hadn’t seen yet, and getting health back to take a course again takes a long time. (They might want to explain how capitalization works in German, but of course I can google it too.) In Japanese, some of the hiragana pronunciations are hard to hear or understand so I'd recommend beginners also listen to YouTube or a Japanese person. On course consistency, it's weird that some languages require health, and reward gems while others don't. I had an 8 day streak then missed a day and the app asked me for $3.99 to continue my streak. really.
This app makes it stick! 5/5
I'm so loving this app!! I've tried multiple programs but this is the one that has made the lessons stick in my brain.
Can't recommend for Japanese 1/5
So many grammatical and kanji reading errors. I was really confused when it was reading off words that looked nothing like the kana then I found out it was reading the wrong readings. Can't recommend.
Must have 5/5
This is super amazing. Very user friendly and just amazing. Everyone ever wanting to leave a new language must try this. It really works and it's like a game, reminds me of FarmVille, were it's just something you do everyday for 5-10 mins. Love it!
Solid app 5/5
A very solid app, well worth a download.
Love this app 5/5
By Venezuelan pastor
What an easy way to learn a new language
So far, so good. 4/5
I am in the basics, and honestly, this is a review for me. It is a great app to remember the skills I once had.
it is cool brather 5/5
By Y'all want dat broccoli
I do recomind this app very many thank you😉🇺🇿💦
It's great and I learned a lot except some flaws 5/5
By lo iodeiah
Considering I knew nothing before I started duolingo, I advanced impressively. Sometimes duolingo can get on my nerves, for example, it can't hear me when it's silent around, even when I speak right towards the mic. Other than that duolingo is amazing and I highly recommend it.
Addictive way to learn a language 5/5
This app has a good design to it. I log in every night and do lessons. It's fun and easy which is good for me because I'm really just a fan of languages. I definitely recommend it if you're looking to have fun exploring a language. At the moment I am learning French and Korean.
Love the app but..... 4/5
I love learning the dominant language of my community, Spanish. It's been very helpful and the Bot conversations are excellent.
I ran into a problem today with the Numbers category. Lesson 4 will not load? Can you please help?
new language 4/5
i like it but you need to add a chinese learning language for english speakers please!!! i have been waiting months for you to release it but still haven’t yet, please do it soon or on the next update!
Best language app 5/5
I love that it gives you reminders so you have no excuse not to practice. I also love that it's cute and simple and it's designed in a fun way so you want to actually learn
Poor speech recognition 2/5
By Flaming Sword of Moderation
Fun, well-designed...and very frustrating. I speak clearly and slowly, yet the app cannot understand my correct answers. It gives me three attempts, and when it displays the correct answer (after my "failures"), it turns out to be what I was saying all along. Since only five screw-ups are allowed per session, my lessons end early. Disappointing!
5 stars 5/5
Very good I have a lot of fun Learning new laungeges
Love it, but Korean next? 5/5
This app is very useful but I would like to learn Korean. So please add it.
Edit: Thank you so much for adding korean! My dream has finally come true!
Great language learning app! 5/5
I've learned so much from this app. It's easy to use and understand.
Very buggy 1/5
Keeps wiping skill trees I've finished after I finish them. Not to mention I can't buy the bonus lessons. And I'll click on lessons to redo what was wiped, and all I get is a blank white screen that says quit for a minute or two before it forces me back to the skill tree page.
Great but 4/5
Duolingo is great and everything but all of a sudden, It had been really laggy and not working at all and it takes forever to load something and yes, I deleted and re downloaded and even shut my phone off and turned it back on and neither of those helped
Doesn’t work 1/5
I tried to pick my language to have a new account and it keeps coming up with an error. It’s frustrating. Please fix it
ممتاز جداً 3/5
