HELPS SO MUCH!! 5/5
This app is so amazing!! I am taking Spanish next year and I wanted to be prepared and this is helping so much!!! You can also take so many other languages! This app also doubles as a fun thing to do.
No por que a cada rato me anda preguntando lo mismo si me gusta pero con esa pregunta ya me estoy molestando ok si pregúntelo pero no tan repetido ya 😑🙁😒
A good way to learn direct word translations, fluency not so much 3/5
Duolingo never advertised it would give you complete fluency nor would I expect it, but there are a few severe issues with its core teaching methods.
The primary and biggest issue I have is there being no even simple aspect of the app to teach you sentence structure and grammar. Everything has to be inferred based on the sentences given, which hampers the ability to understand how to write your own sentences a lot. Even just a graphic under the sentence saying “notice how the sentence is structured VSO or OVS” etc. verb conjugations especially. I would love if they even just highlighted the part of the verb or noun that’s being changed and why it’s being changed that way. Just anything, instead of having to try and watch YouTube videos or googling it.
Another problem is proper pronunciation guides. Adding a small drop down on the word that breaks down the exact pronunciation would be a Godsend.
In all this is a good app and I’ve learned a lot from it. But having to use lots of other resources to compensate what duolingo doesn’t, but easily could, teach you is frustrating.
Fun to learn 5/5
Much like a game but you’re actually learning something
Great, but the heart thing blocks me from learning. 3/5
I want to practice an hour in the morning and an hour at night. However, it is very hard to do this when each time I get an answer wrong, I lose hearts and do not have gems to fill up meaning I can only practice maybe twenty minutes a day. I just moved to a predominantly Mexican area where I feel it’s important to learn their language. It’s extremely hard to practice when my hearts aren’t filled up for hours. I also just don’t want to spend money on learning a language when the app is supposed to be free. I should be able to be wrong without risking learning time. I want to get fairly familiar with Spanish in 3-5 months but maybe I shouldn’t use Duolingo for that if this heart thing continues.
Please add Tagalog 3/5
By Soccer Mom 19
I would have given a higher star review if you had Tagalog as a language choice. I have started Spanish and enjoy your app but would have preferred Tagalog. My father was Filipino and my step mother and brothers speak Tagalog. Please consider Tagalog as an addition to your language repertoire. 😊
This let me leave Duolingo 3/5
This app doesn’t let me refer back the old exercises. Even though I took notes while practicing, I am unable to remember much of past lessons. I felt like I’m just doing the exercises for completing daily goal. I wish I could get access to old lessons in premium version.
I liked. 5/5
Do you lingo is fun 5/5
By dragon girl 15
Do you lingo isit’s funner than I thought
Es muy bueno 2/5
Me encanto el programa porq soy una persona adulta ( 74 años) estoy entusiasmada en aprender un poquito de inglés , para ayudar a mis nietos.
I hate this app 1/5
By dog person / reviewer🐶
It only gives you five tries and are 5 try’s going to do and to get more you have to pay to learn your passion but why it stops when you learn a certain amount and I am very upset 😡
How much is the Plus version? 3/5
You have prices for gems but I can’t find the price for the No Ads Plus version. Also, the gamification is a pain. I’m not a kid and don’t care for collecting gems. It’s what my brain retains that count.
AND YOUR DEVELOPER LINK OPENS THE APP 🙄. IT SHOULD OPEN YOUR WEBSITE!!!
This is my opinion 5/5
I have been improving on my Korean lessons and I am getting way better, I love to do the Korean lessons but Sometimes I get disappointed and I think it is the apps fault but at the same time I
know it is just me forgetting Korean. Other than that the app is great!!!
Doulingo is the best app to learn any language! 5/5
By on the ice ccf
I love this app so much! I have wanted to learn Spanish forever (almost everyone knows Spanish at my dads house and I felt out of place somehow) But I downloaded this app YESTERDAY and I already know so much! And it’s not just Spanish you can learn. You can learn all SORTS of languages! I got it just for fun because my bestie got it, and I wanted to check it out. But it’s is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo fun! And the bird is so cute!
Best platform to learn languages 5/5
By Magic Taimania 💎
This app is user-friendly. It is very interactive which makes it more interesting. The streak feature makes us login everyday. Thanks Duolingo!
4 stars 4/5
I try to hear the sound of what it’s saying and sometimes it says nothing
Amazing! But I have asuggestions 4/5
Ok so Duolingo is an amazing app to use when you want to learn a new language. But can you please add the Armenian language also? I really want to learn Armenian and Duolingo would help me a lot! Please add the Armenian language! 🙏
It’s ok 3/5
I like Duolingo but I hate when you lose hearts. They want you to learn another language but when you make a mistake you lose a heart and when you lose all of them you literally have to wait a day to get all of them back. Also it makes you less motivated. Another thing I feel like when I’m learning Chinese and I have to put the Chinese words but then it says I’m wrong when it’s actually right.
I’m trying Duolingo plus right now but it will not allow me to unsubscribe.
Latest update 4/5
Please remove the hearts and maybe add something where you have to redo that question after you see your mistake so you can better learn from it (like in a classroom setting how a teacher might have you repeat the correct answer). It is very hard to learn any language when you have limited tries. Other than that the app is great, you get used to the adds and just go from lesson to lesson continuously learning. Maybe take notes while you do the lessons though, it’s nice to review the notes later.
It’s okay..... 3/5
By Ryka Herbert
For the most part it’s great. The only reason I dont like it that much is that it teaches you at a really slow pace that may be great for some people but I personally don’t like that. It keeps on crashing when I try to do my Spanish lessons it sometimes crashes and won’t let me in the app. Over all it’s a great app if you like learning at a slow pace but just have precautions.
Rosetta Stone, WHO??? 5/5
Okay so I’ve officially learned more Spanish in 2 hours than I did 4 years in college. Sounds ridiculous, i know, but if you stay committed to using duo lingo daily i am confident that your language improvements will be successful. I’m having so much fun as a 23 year old using this app and the interface is just so easy and compatible with anyone of any age. I have full confidence that this app will increase my Spanish knowledge and i cant wait to see the results in a few months. I will make sure to update you all. But for today, this app gets a 5/5 star rating FOR SURE! Im so excited, i’ve literally never been so excited to learn a new language like this! Screw college! My spanish coworkers better watch out because now they can’t talk $#!+ behind my back!
I AM NOT A BOT THIS IS AMAZING 5/5
First off I AM NOT A BOT 5 stars! and u should trust me cuz I’m 10 years old and I know quite some español a trick tho is what ever language you want to learn if you have a iPhone add that language keyboard to the list and you won’t miss accents😉
If your learning ANY language get THIS app
Love the daily reminders 5/5
By pdx usb customer
Decades after taking French I’m enjoying getting back to it. If I stick with it I might be able to carry on a basic conversation at some point. I like being reminded every day to do a lesson. Worth getting the ad free version
So easy 5/5
By Crazy Cycle
Absolutely love this app. Easy retention. I can get a lesson in waiting at the doctors office, on a lunch break, or just sitting on my couch in and out of a tv show.
Enjoyable learning 5/5
By lynne julia
I have been meaning to learn Spanish for years, but never found the time. This app is awesome it’s free, fun and only takes 15 minutes a day. Even after a week I feel like I am making progress and am really enjoying the experience. Than you
Punished for Mistakes 1/5
STOP IT WITH THE HEARTS
Inventing the “hearts” idea is the worst mistake a language app could make. New learners of a language SHOULD NOT BE PUNISHED for making a mistake because that is how you learn! Losing a heart with each mistake and then being cut off when you run out of all 5 makes learners less motivated to want to try and learn. Terrible app nowadays.
Edit to add: now you have to use gems to play in the XP challenge? Y’all just getting worse by the second.
The best learning 5/5
I like it updated to be able to buy the unlimited with gems?
It’s great, but needs a few things 5/5
This app is great, I’ve been learning French on it for a while now and it has been really helpful. The only thing I wish could happen is if they made the restoring better. When you finish a level, it turns gold. But then you have to go back and practice it once in a while. Which is good, but they make it break way way to often. Sometimes I go a week practicing every day just to spend the whole time restoring levels. I can’t learn anything new this way. It will only get worse as I complete more levels. Duolingo if you could fix this I would like your app more.
Learning Portuguese 5/5
I’m Learning Portuguese And I Like It
Super Helpful, but Needs a Tiny Bit of Work 4/5
I've used this app for a really long time. I feel like it worked better when it didn't have hearts. Now you can practice only a shorter amount of time then before. I suggest either adding more hearts, removing them, or having it so that you can only lose one per lesson. Other than this tiny detail, I'm completely satisfied!
Also on a bit of a side note, the Russian course would work better if the alphabet was taught first.
Learn a language with ease 5/5
By JS. 919
This app is worth getting if you are serious about learning a second language.
plese dont git this app, it has ruined my relationship with my roblox girlfrend, ever sense i got this she brok up with me:( it has also made me wear i cant use proper grammer. the green bird thing won’t leave me alon at night, i always see it in my dreems, it’s so scary pls leeve me alone
I bought it not to long ago and I have already learned so much. I was expecting it to be a lot harder to learn a language however this app makes it simple.
I would recommend it for anyone looking to learn a new language.
I really enjoy using this to learn but the structure isn’t the best. It would be a lot easier if it taught you the alphabet and numbers first, then some words and phrases. It would just be a lot easier to learn that way.
Great app, but don’t like new update 4/5
I have had Duolingo for a long while. I have used it primarily for Spanish (to keep skills fresh and relevant), French, and Japanese. I love this app, however recently they added a feature where you are only allowed “five lives”. If you mess up one is deducted. Once you run completely out you have to use gems to get more and the only way to get more gems is buy watching ads😬. Overall really love this app and it provides high quality education!
I am learning Spanish on this app and I love it!!! I started like 2-3 weeks ago, and I am already really good at it. I definitely recommend getting this app for learning a new language!
I love it 5/5
It helps me learn about the different language.💙🦄🦄🎉🙃😇😉🤓🧐🥳🤩
By crazy lady174
It turns of sound for hours so when your done you can’t watch any thing
Don’t turn on notifications 4/5
I thought turning on notifications would help me remember to practice French but it sends me notifications at 2:00 am.
Me encanta!! 5/5
Tenia al inicio un poco de temor de pagar y que no valga la pena, pero es divertido y con 15 min diarios es suficiente!
LOVE IT 5/5
I like it because all the languages I can learn makes this the best education app ever😇
Love it, but it’s missing some features... 4/5
It’s a very useful app for learning many languages, and the Spanish and French courses have reading practices to help you on your way too. Although, I’d like if more courses like the Japanese, Korean, Chinese, and other courses also had this feature, as it would make learning a bit easier. Otherwise I’m very happy with Duolingo!!!
I missed 1 day and half a nanosecond of Spanish and he has taken my family and has a gun to my head, forcing me to leave a five- star review. When I finish this, he will choose between executing my wife, or my youngest child.
I can’t BELIEVE this is free!!! I’m learning Spanish and a could say a paragraph in Spanish almost ten minutes after I downloaded it. Best language learning app EVER!!!!!
Oddest Request I Think Ever 5/5
I am a self-study in Nihongaku (Japanese language and culture), and I’ve absolutely fallen in love with the Japanese course. I use it when I’m on the go and need to study, as well as at night before I go to sleep (this is a scientific study thing, it helps store into longterm memory and the subconscious).
But, something I’ve noticed (this just might only be my own preferences speaking), very few study sources (textbooks, Duolingo, websites, etc.) never have a romaji study. I’ve found, personally, that going from English words to Romaji, then Kana, then Kanji helps me connect and read faster. It may only be me, but, if it’s not:
Could the programmers, lesson writers and developers add in a romaji course section? Sometimes I wish I could answer a “what is this word” question with the romaji. I know it’s frowned upon by a lot of teachers, as doing it alone can mess up pronunciation, but since Duolingo has audio, that’s not an issue. Or shouldn’t be.
I know this is slightly ridiculous, as romaji has such an intense stigma, but it IS still used on signs in Japan. And, is used in things like JRPGs, movies and anime. Even mangaka. So, please consider it?
I thank all the people working on this program, as it has helped me immensely.
