It's a really good app. Definitely worth a try and for sure you will gain some new communication skills.😁👋🏽
برنامج ممتاز 3/5

Love this app 5/5
Good language app. Better than Rosetta. The price is right too!
Great app 5/5
I love this app. The lessons are short and the reviews help cement the words into memory.
Not too fast, not too redundant. It's quickly becoming the most important and effective app on my phone.
Me gusta 4/5

Es una buena aplicación pero debe tener más ejemplos de la vida cotidiana para podernos desenvolver mejor gracias
Benefits outweigh small negatives 4/5
This is a great app, but since you're reading this for the negative feedback I'll get to it:
I started using it to maintain my German (and begin Spanish) but some of the "correct" English translations for German words are...wrong.
It's evident that Germans worked to write the English answers, which is great, I'd rather learn German from a native German speaker, but it's frustrating when I know the correct word in English and have to alter it in order to maintain health. Yes I've reported it, but does anyone really read those?
Synopsis: great tool, but fluent speakers who want to maintain beware
Why did I pay for this app? 1/5
By Hammered Pen
The app seems to be well thought out pretty easy to use. As a "freemium" app, I get the whole watch a video to support it or buy crystals to refill your health. But, I wanted to study without interruption so I bought a 1 year subscription for $87.99 thinking I'd be able to study as much as I wanted. Well, that isn't how it works - as you practice, you're likely going to make mistakes and when you make 5 mistakes, you have to buy crystals (with real money!!) to keep practicing even after you've paid to use the app.
I'm now frustrated and really not interested in practicing since when I make mistakes I'm penalized... that's a crummy educational model.
Love at first sight 4/5
I’ve been using this app for about 1+ years!
And my Spanish is improving drastically 😁😁 I love the new conversation component.
Free and great
WE NEED ICELANDIC!!!!! 4/5
By #takes too long
This would have gotten five stars because of how many languages you have and how well you teach them, but, seriously, you. need. ICELANDIC!!!! I learned Svenska (sweedish), and it was taught very well. But you need Icelandic, we need icelandic, we all NEED ICELANDIC!!!!!!!
South Korea 2/5
By Ashley arias
I’m trying to learn South Korean but you only have a choice and it’s Korea...but idk of its South Korean that I’m learning or its North Korean. I need to know South Korean language bc of me going to my collage there. North and South are different. Please update something that you can choose either North Korean or South. Please write back soon so I can know:) love this app
Truly is helpful 5/5
And my fiancé just sit on the couch playing Duolingo. And yes I mean playing this game/learning device is easy to use and slightly addictive. If you want to new language in your life this app will help you
I give it 5 stars but...... 5/5
This app is amazing! But it has some glitches.....whenever I tap the little box thing that has the symbol thingy in it it doesn't make a noise when it's supposed to and especially when it's a new sound I get it wrong bc I can't hear the sound 😕
By Blacksmith joe
This app in conjunction with other resources will have you well on your way to learning a new language.
As others have stated the desktop version is thorough and should be used as well. This app shines as an on the go tool to language learning or to brush up on your skills. Make no mistake, you can definitely learn the fundamentals of a language through the application itself.
Good but... 4/5
By No Alarms No Surprises
This app is good except for 1 thing. WHERES THE FINNISH LANGUAGE????!!!!! Plz fix ASAP! 😱🙁😕😨😾😐
First Language app that's free to learn 5/5
Thank go this app is free and I don't have to pay monthly. Makes me happy that I am able to learn languages without money being in the way.
Very good app, just needs more lessons 4/5
Nice and easy to use, Duolingo definitely makes learning a language easier, because it lets you go back and practice lessons as many times as you like, but I do think there could definitely be more lessons for each language.
great but has issues 3/5
i wish the speaking component was better. worked at first and then it just wasn't incorporated into the lessons after the first few. tried logging in and out and changing the settings and deleting and redownloading the app but the problem persisted. disappointing because i really do like the app
Learn thru repetition 5/5
Found mix of visual and audio practice beneficial to learning.
Lots of fun 5/5
I like the game fixation of learning German.
Annoying Ads 4/5
This is my favorite app to help me review my Spanish and learn other languages. The only downside are the annoying ads that pop up after every lesson. Other than that, it's a very nice app that I would recommend to anyone wanting to learn a language.
Very User Friendly - and Addictive 5/5
I can't get enough of this little app -- a welcome addictive property in the context of making a serious effort to learn the fundamentals of a language in a short amount of time. I will say that I gain more when I occasionally supplement with the desktop version of the tool. Great job, Duolingo.
Great for learning but annoying sometimes. 4/5
I think Duolingo is a great on the go learning tool. I started it about a year and a half ago and loved it. I forgot about it for a while but I just recently started again and saw the health bar. I hate that! It makes mistakes much more impactful to someone that’s okay at it. It also has adds and “Plus Mode” or whatever. It’s very annoying now when I can’t play for a while because of a couple of mistakes!
Some languages do not have any voice 3/5
By Leila cool
In Irish which I really want to learn, there is no voice so how am I supposed to know how to pronounce things
Good app 5/5
This app is good for expanding vocabulary. I wish it would show me conjugation charts every once in a while. And also hints on endings like eating is comiendo..just something to make it easier to understand instead of figuring it out on my own
Really helpful! 5/5
I just started learning Ukrainian and its going really well and smooth just by completing a lesson daily and repeating it to understand. Amazing app!
Learning Spanish is as easy as Uno, Dos, Tres! 5/5
Love this app, it makes it very easy to learn Spanish. I'm not fluent as of yet, but I'm getting there!
This app is an appalling scam built on the goodwill generated by their website. While the gamification of learning a language as it is used in this app can be helpful and effective and is certainly fun, the developers have opted to take advantage of the natural, psychological craving this creates not to help you learn better, but to encourage you to spend money. Please read on before you balk at these claims.
Awe, you made too many mistakes(5) during the lesson? Well if you want to keep going now, give us some money. Or you can wait a few hours when what you were just learning has faded, whether you have time to study later or not.
Yes you can use their website for virtually the same experience on your mobile as in the app. Oh, they make no effort to make you aware of this fact whatsoever. Especially when they are asking you for money.
Want to remove ads? No problem, Just pay us a monthly fee of 10 dollars.
Missed a day in your study streak? No problem, money solves everything. At least when it comes to fixing your score streak, not in actually learning anything except maybe that if you have money, cheating is acceptable.
I understand that developing, publishing, and supporting Duolingo in all its forms costs money. However, when does that become a valid justification for misleading or taking advantage of someone?
Rather than developing a way to teach you about the grammar the way the website does, they spent their development time creating a health meter to penalize you when you make a mistake. Then, they left out any real attempt to explain grammar, so that they can then ask you for money after you have made five mistakes during a lesson and your health meter is empty.
That’s a interesting way to share knowledge under the guise of altruism. What does their website say, “always free?”
If you spend any great amount of time on the Duolingo website and then use this app, the disparity in content, mixed with the artificial barriers like the health meter, and the constant nagging for money, anyone can see the strong evidence that the primary purpose of this app is to make money, not to teach you a language. They have found a way with this app to take advantage of the friendly image they’ve cultivated and the addictive nature of the their learning method, to attempt to get people to spend as much money as possible.
There are many other language apps on the App Store that may not look as cute and cuddly las Duolingo, but are excellent to use nonetheless, up front about any costs, don’t make any attempt to mislead you about their intentions, and have much more detailed and thorough information. They don’t restrict your learning in any way and either they cost less or provide much more value for your money.
Check out Memrise, Busuu, Babbel, Drops, Rosetta Stone, and on and on. Their is veritable plethora of great language learning material out their. Don’t get taken advantage of by these guys.
It’s shocking to me that this app is produced by the same people behind the website or their famous founder.
Wonderful App 5/5
I have only used this App a few times & already feel like it has helped so much! I absolutely love it & look forward to using it and learning much more!!
Good Tool 5/5
I have used Duolingo off and on over the years to brush up on Spanish. I keep coming back to it because it is useful. Now that they have added Korean, it is holding my attention better than any other app or software I’ve tried previously.
Good teachers 5/5
By Wafik 2008
The best way to learn a new language. Whatever your level in the language you will learn it through the app.
This is the best app for learning and for daily review of any language!!!
I have used this for French and now Japanese and it is excellent!
Most effective when used DAILY and when paired with other modes of instruction and learning such as writing, questions and other apps.
Best single source of daily refreshing and learning.
Would definitely recommend!!!
Works great for me 5/5
By Game on my phone
Duolingo works great for me. I can do as much or as little, as frequently or infrequently as I chose and it is always ready for me to keep going. I love the "strengthen skills" option.
By Logan Spanish
Well it is really helpful to learn basic words but not context of where those words go.
Excellent practice 4/5
This is my favorite way to practice vocabulary. I enjoy the bit conversation.
Great app 5/5
Quick refresher before advancing! Breaks basics down, repetitive and offers multiple ways to practice reading, writing and speaking new languages.
Great language workout! 5/5
I have been using the app for a couple of years and have found that my skills keep improving. It isn't as good as talking with people who speak the language, but it helps hone spelling and grammar skills.
This is an interesting and fun app.
Helpful when consistently on it 5/5
I have been using Duo off and on for 4 or 5 years now and I know and understand more of the language from the app than I do the teachers I have had.
Easy and fun 5/5
I'm finding that the fun, and sometimes silly, conversations stick with me. The only improvement would be a few instructions here and there. For example, how do you get past the checkpoint?
Catching On 4/5
I am enjoying Duolingo. The longer the length of time each day, the more proficient I am becoming. I took Spanish in high school and college, but never became as proficient as I desired. I believe if I stick with Duolingo, I will reach my longtime goal. I am going to tackle French as well, another language I took in school but never realized proficiency.
By Bestoon Kirkuki
Very appreciated actually it is very good application
The best app for learning english language 5/5
Before this application I almost did not know how the English is arranged, and now I'm going to study in another country :)
Best language learning app! 5/5
It’s completely free and the streaks motivate you to keep learning daily.
Minor fix 5/5
By BP Silly
When putting sentences together, it’s easy to figure out the first word because it’s capitalized. Just leave everything lower case so I don’t automatically know which word is correct.
Also, an offline mode would be nice. Why does it need internet constantly?
Fun and Free 5/5

Where was this when I struggled through high school Spanish
By Gabriel's trumpet
Really easy to learn!
