I WANT MY KIDS BACK...
By Lisa WWM
I am glad to have a nice slow pace teacher. It goes over the new stuff I few times giving you a little time to catch on. I should be ready for a little conversation when I go on my trip next year.

Best app that I’ve had in 10 years 5/5
By Gregor the overlander
This app is simply amazing. I’ve been trying to learn Italian for five years, but I’ve never had time to devote. I’ve tried Rosetta Stone, a college class, etc. Of course, I never had time to devote to any of these things. Duolingo is amazing because I do it in my downtime. I do it for fun. I’ve only been doing it for four days and I’m confident that I will be speaking Italian by the end of the month.
Awesome sauce ! 4/5
By ÃRBĘŸŠ PÎDGĒ
Dulingo has really helped me learn my native language; French. It’s great and is supper beneficial! I’m positive that when I go to France I will be able to speak with everyone! The only problem is that you run out of hearts if you answer a question wrong if your not a premium member. But, hearts respawn fast. I recommend learning Spanish. It will help you a lot with many languages! Ty so much Dulingo!
I will now speak French! 😀 5/5
By Sup im stephen
This is even better than my Spanish class to be perfectly honest.
What a piece of sh^^ 1/5
The programmers have little clue about teaching. Ready to get answer after answer wrong? With no instruction as to why? This is the app for you. Sick of this crap.
Constant freezing makes the app unusable. 1/5
I'm using Duolingo to learn multiple languages, and am paying for plus, but the constant freezing of the app upon launching a lesson makes it entirely unusable. I am having to use an Android phone to use Duolingo because of this, while i would prefer to use my iPad. It’s doubly frustrating as a paying customer. The freezing has been going on consistently for over six months in my case, and our requests for support on the Duolingo site are summarily ignored.
THE BEST APP I’VE EVER USED!! 5/5
I love Duolingo so much! I’d recommend it to almost anyone!
Muy buena para aprender de una manera diferente y entretenida me encanta esta aplicación
It’s great when it works 2/5
By The Misery Chick
The app is incredibly useful for casually learning another language, however recent updates have left me wondering why I’m paying.
First things first, the customer support is i credibly minimal and not at all nuanced. I have 1 of 3 concerns about the app crashing answered and the response was pretty abysmal as it essentially boiled down to a “if it happens again, take these steps to report it”. Not helpful.
Secondly, if you’re like me and you’ve been using the app for a bit, the recent major update over the summer really sucked. A big part of this has to do with the voice changes. I have been learning French since the pandemic lockdown and the voices I started with in April were by far superior to what I’ve got now. While it is nice at first, to better hear the language what you begin to realize is that no native speaker talks this way. Even more annoying, the voices pronounce the accents of a letter by actually saying “accent” so “á” (ah) becomes "ah-accent”. Obnoxious, disorientating during lessons, and so needs to be fixed but it’s been over a month now so my hopes on that are dwindling.
Third, also since the new update this summer, constant freezing and crashing during lessons. I’ve had to reset this app more times that I care to count and I’ve lost lessons because of it. It’s no competition or anything, but it is nice to be able to keep track of how long you’ve practiced as well as keep open the lessons you’ve unlocked. I got no answer from customer support about my disappearing lessons and I expect I won’t at this point either.
So yeah, what a great idea, especially now when so many of us our stuck at home trying to be useful with our time but DuoLingo definitely has some problems that need resolving.
Download it and give it a try, but don’t waste your money until some of these major issues get resolved, it’ll only add frustration to something that should be educational and fun.
Duos pet 5/5
By P4A pilot
Best free app on my phone
App keyboards aren’t working 2/5
When trying to type simple words like “is” and “woman” the keyboards autocorrect to other words and don’t leave the option to leave the words I have written. When you hit space it autocorrects. Was having fun learning a new language until I got stuck on a lesson due to a bug in the app.
Very good application, but sometimes there are mistakes
Doesn’t sync across devices 3/5
By Mitch Muse
What lessons I do on an iPhone doesn’t transfer across other devices like iPad. Frustrating.
High stakes 4/5
This app is great the only downside is the hearts, is you fail too many times you can’t continue without purchasing plus or waiting
Used to be good 2/5
The app is alright if you are willing to pay for it. It never use to spam you with buying the paid version or have you “run out of hearts” like some cheap mobile game. Very disappointing
Hearts ruining it 2/5
I have been using Duolingo for years. Really enjoy it. Suddenly out of nowhere I have hearts that run out so I don’t even get to work on it for more than ten minutes so I just give up. Total bummer
Volume level problems 3/5
By sauna aika
Like much of broadcast television, the volume levels on ads are much louder than the actual language content. I have to crank it up to distinguish subtle differences in language pronunciation, then I get blasted with the volume levels in the ads.
By LITTLE LADY CHLOE
Hi my name is chloe and I’m 16 and I’ve been using this since I was nine and it’s amazing so I would recommend this app and it does a lot languages which I have learned 1 language but that’s okay there is no problems and it’s really cool to so anyone that’s reading this have a great day and please download this app please
By mulan star lani
Dulingo is fun but there are rumors about the bird will kill you in 2 days if you don’t learn your Spanish app I don’t know so pls write me back cuz I’m so confuses
Some bugs 3/5
I used to work with this app for almost one year. But recently it keeps to add extra words to practice mode, words I didn’t see in my lessons before. And this makes practice pointless.
Also I wish there was a future for seeing the words we learned before, then we can review them and checking their pronunciation and more and more.
Create a character 4/5
By unhappy but happy person
I love Duolingo! It has helped me learn more Spanish, but can you make it so that you could create your own characters for the lessons. That would be awesome.
Helpful, but fails to inform users of updates 2/5
Duolingo is a great basic product to learn basics once a language. However, they tend to update learning trees in the middle of the program, effectively losing visualized progress. While technically yes, you did learn something before the update, but it erases most of the lessons and sets them to zero, which psychologically, is quite demoralizing and not a good way to teach. I don’t mind updates, but please warn your users before you do so, and give them a chance to opt out of the new lesson trees.

German soo wrong for the Turkish speaker 1/5
I really don't know who prepares this course but they are really don't know Turkish and German either. I can't count the problem cause the mistakes are too many to count. And no one fixes them. I do not understand how this course was approved and published. There are so many mistakes that you have to deal with this nonsense when you say I will learn a language. This course should definitely be revised or removed in a short time. It's impossible to learn German with this nonsense. You are doing great evil to people, not good.
Stole my life 1/5
I love duolingo and recommend it. I am learning Italian and so far so great
GET IT 5/5
This app is helping me learn German so fast! I highly recommend it! Ich bin ein Mädchen.
Plan on paying for it. 2/5
By no hearts 1234532
The free app is very difficult to pass a first basic level and continue without purchasing more “❤️s”. The difference between a correct answer and incorrect answer can be verbiage on the basic level. One letter in a phrase and you lose a heart and must wait hours to continue, then only to repeat the same mistake. Good luck.
App freezes 3/5
Every time I want to continue in a lesson the app freezes and I have to close out in the middle of the lesson. I’m trying to progress but the app won’t let me
Duolingo Spanish 5/5
By St. Auggie Dave
Duolingo is a wonderful app. I’ve been using it for over a year. I can’t wait to use my Spanish language skills in a live situation.
Losing confidence in the app because the English translations aren’t very good 4/5
By ΘBBΘ fan
I’m doing Finnish (yay!). But I’m losing confidence in the accuracy of the Finnish because the English translations aren’t very good. They are often awkward & don’t accept very common legitimate variations of words & phrases. Examples: really good/very good; soda/pop (inconsistent on that one & frequently uses the very old-fashioned “soda pop); do you want/ would you like; insists on “A coffee?” which no waiter would ever say (It should be “Coffee?” or “Some coffee?”) Don’t you run things by native speakers?
This is the best!!!!!!!!! 5/5
Duolingo is the best! Even though it’s learning stuff, which is usually really hard, it’s super fun and easy! I know spanish much better now! Of course there’s some ads, but it doesn’t really matter! The awesomeness of Duolingo makes up for any inconveniences about the ads. If you’re reading this, I recommend that you get Duolingo! YAAAAAAAY!!!! 🥳
Freezes constantly 1/5
The present l tense lesson keeps freezing. Can’t move past level 1
More and more forcing users to pay site 1/5
By Uber user 86
Only app that penalizes making mistakes and therefore not helping in the learning process. Tons of advertisements before and after lessons.
Annoying “feature”: quits my lesson when I switch apps 4/5
I really like Duolingo: I have a 419 day streak going. Many bugs have been fixed. But there’s one that irks me regularly: if mid-lesson I look at another app (typically SpanishDict, to look up a word), too often when I switch back to Duolingo, it’s quit me out of my lesson, even if I’m past the middle of the lesson. It wastes my time & effort. I cannot see how this would be desirable. I could understand it happening if the app is updated while I’m temporarily “away”, but I doubt that it updates several times a day. I hope this is fixed soon.
I like app 5/5
By Olivera Mtz
Es la mejor realmente estoy aprendiendo
You betrayed me , Duolingo 2/5
I have been studying very hard on Duolingo since January. I have completed all German classes to level 1. Then I began to complete all the lessons to level 3. When I was halfway, after months of work, a message pops up on my screen asking whether I would like to upgrade my lessons, because Duolingo had made a cool update and blah blah blah. I clicked on “OK” and, all of sudden, hundreds of my completed lessons went back to zero. So I have to start it all over again, from “Ich bin ein Mann”. So cool, Duolingo!
To add insult to injury, I wrote to your customer service and you solemnly ignored me. So, 2 stars for you. It’s a shame.
ADDDD ELVISH 1/5
PLEASEEEE ADD QUENYA
HELPED SOOOO MUCH 5/5
I have only been on it for one day and I already know lots of Japanese hiragana!Totally recommend this app if you need to learn a different language really fast like if you are going on a trip that doesn’t speak English in a few days this app is the app for you!
_____ for dummies 5/5
So simple and if you read the comments they usually have most questions you’ll have answered. Thanks Duolingo! :)
Very good, one problem 5/5
By squid mcsquiderson
So the issue I have is that there was and ad for duolingo plus after completing a lesson. This is fine however, one reason it lists as to why I should get Plus is that users with plus are 4.2x more likely to finish French. This is where my problem lies. It is very likely that people with duolingo plus purchase it after using the app for a while. I’m proposing that the correlation is opposite what duolingo advertises. Duolingo advertises says that getting Duolingo Plus will increase your chance of finishing a course. I suggest that people who purchase Duolingo Plus AND people who finish a course are both avid language learners. This was just something I felt like pointing out. I believe this wasn’t done maliciously and instead was a mistake. Either way I love Duolingo. As of today I have a 290 day French streak.
I love it! 5/5
When I first visited China I had no idea how to speak Chinese, and after 3 YEARS not knowing Chinese I found this amazing app! When I started I was not so sure it would teach me Chinese very well. Then after a week I became obsessed with it! I’m looking forward to more languages coming soon.
It’s great! One suggestion 5/5
I love duolingo and it has really helped me learn the language. I have a suggestion that could possibly make it better! I think once you reach a higher/harder level in a lesson, when speaking a sentence, instead of the audio being given in the language you’re learning, it’s given in your native language and then you have to translate it out loud. (For example, I’m learning french so give the audio in English and I say it in French). I think because this is normally how bilingual/polyglot people probably do it irl it could help the person learning become better at translating in their speech and not just in writing. However everything else about duolingo is great! I enjoy it, it’s fun, and I’m subscribed to the podcast :) I hope you take my suggestion into consideration!
Great for learning a new language 🥳 5/5
By 3ds person 123
This app is great for learning a new language. The fact that a education app about learning a Language is free is mind blowing🤯🤯. Plus, the game doesn’t even throw a lot of ads at you which again, is mind blowing. Also, the life system in this game is also cool. If you get a question wrong, you lose a life but you can regain one life every couple hours which is good for pacing yourself. But if you don’t like the life system, you can get Duolingo plus for a fair price. If you come across this game and want to learn a language. GET IT👍.
Great tool to learn languages 5/5
Easy and fun to use at your own pace. I am brushing up on Spanish and starting Italian.
Duolingo is the best for language learning! You should really try it. It has so many languages to learn, and the way it does works so well. When I finish the Hawaiian course, I think I will be fluent in Hawaiian.
En hora buena al equipo de Duolingo 5/5
