Plus que parfait Duolingo 5/5
By Medozil Garry
Ah ouais c’est superbe, j’ai apprit très bien l’espagnol avec Duolingo
Solid but flawed 3/5
Duolingo is the king of language-learning apps for a reason. It’s not all you need to learn a language, but it is a very useful asset.
Unfortunately, the increasing gameification and efforts to push people toward subscriptions are slowly eroding the value and enjoyment of the app.
I understand that Duolingo needs to generate revenue, and I support them in that, but they should do so by creating compelling content behind the paywall and not by eroding the functionality of the core app that established the brand.
“The first taste is free” and bait-and-switch may be successful strategies, but Duolingo users deserve better.
They have done it....... 1/5
By Eithan's observations
Today, Duolingo removed Duolingo clubs. The clubs were a place to learn and speak to other people. It was a great place to practice speaking the language you were learning with others. Now, we have leaderboards, where it’s about you and not others. Where you compete with a list of names for prizes, but no way of speaking. No contract. Now, in Duolingo, we are alone. It’s a solo mission to learn the language you want now.
Duolingo, how could you? My heart is broken for the 298,000,000+ users who had great clubs, that are now gone. Duolingo is ruined 😭
good, but your family will be taken 5/5
you get to learn new languages, but if you don’t do your lesson, your family will be taken.
Worth it? 4/5
I’ve used this app on and off since it came it came out. I can honestly say it’s helpful and you do learn new languages or improve what you might already know.
Although, I do have to say that the phrases used aren’t that useful. I wish they were more common but again you do learn something.
So, is it worth it?
Unqualified commendation 5/5

Wish I had done this way before.
Great App! But a few flaws 4/5
By Livy Grace LaChance
I love duolingo and it has helped making learning new languages SUPER EASY.The reason why i gave it 4 stars is because it won’t let me reset my languages.I started a Spanish lessons a few months back for fun.I never really did it , but now sense i have to spanish for school, I went to reset spanish , and it won’t let me.
Really good help if you are learning a new language
By Gamer's Friend
Great idea and great concept. Teaches me and my family Spanish and more would recommend.

So I’m learning Japanese and all of a sudden it gives me a word I don’t recognize. I assume what the word means then get it wrong. I don’t understand, also, why isn’t there a simplified version? Its very heard to remember all the symbols. Other than that this app is amazing. (*^▽^*)
ありがと権妻ます for reading.(^з^)-☆
I think it’s good and useful
Add new languages 5/5
I love this language but please add persia language
Rip off 1/5
I can’t even learn any language without waiting hours for my health to recharge or paying for it. HUGE waste of time, do not download. Might as well get Rosetta Stone if you’re going to pay for something...
great app 5/5
10/10 from me. a great addition would be to add Gallifreyan as a language!!
THE BEST!!! 5/5
i downloaded duolingo a few months ago in an attempt to learn japanese and korean. thankfully, their program works for me!! i quit korean like 2 days in (cause it was HARDDDD!!!) but now i know quite a bit of japanese!!! also duolingo’s twitter is absolutely hilarious. 10/10.
Amazing except the heart concept. 4/5
By teh lojinzez
I think this is a great app. Personally here I have been learning Japanese and it’s quite helpful and it has a great apron he to teaching new sounds. The only thing in this subject is the fact that it doesn’t really explain what makes the same characters sound different. Do you know what I mean??? Like with the daktens and stuff? Idk. It’s a small detail but I think they should explain what that is.
Also I think that the concept of the hearts is kinda stupid. Like you only have five hearts for one lesson. That kinda messes me up. I cant finish a lesson with only five hearts. I’m a human. I make a lot of mistakes. And with only five chances to make a mistake, I can’t really finish my daily lessons. Especially with the kanji stages. Also it take a ridiculous amount of time to get hearts back. About 3 hours until I can have only ONE heart back. ONE!!! I mean I get that it’s trying to get you to push yourself to try your hardest. (I’m pretty sure) but it gives you those hearts so early on that it makes it like impossible for some people to finish a daily lesson. And some are not quick learners and/or forget half the stuff they see, so only five chances to make a mistake is dumb. Well, at least I think so. I think either you should give the hearts to the people later on in their journey on learning a new language, or just not give the hearts at all. Maybe something else like... they have to take a break for five or ten minutes. I don’t know. I’m just stating my opinion. But yeah. Other than that I think this is a great language learning app. But anyways, bye.

Questionable, Yet Helpful 5/5
This is a great app and is very helpful. However, I missed a day and the owl told me to beg for my life in Spanish. So here: por favor no me mates ni a nadie mas haré cualquier cosa. That’s it.
Thanks - very helpful for a raw beginner
He has my family 5/5

Amazing App!!! 5/5
By Noe Elaine
It helped me pass Spanish 1!!! Thank you duolingo. This app is definitely worth getting. And it’s free, what’s better than that?!
Omg. This is great. 5/5
I have been learning Spanish all of my life.I definitely love this
app.It is great and i have Duo on my side.I know how to play piano but we will talk about that later.So if you have Duolingo
do not get addicted.About that Duo thing do not get addicted
cause you might hit the wrong button and lose hearts and
then you may have to wait an hour or so or you might break you're streak.I would not do that if i were you.
Buenísimo pero los comerciales dan hueva y las vidas jodance
Clubs need to come back! 4/5
The new leaderboards that came today are great and all but I miss the clubs. I could talk to my friends and ask questions about the language when I needed to. Please, if you will, bring back the clubs, or at least make a way so that people can still talk to each other. Or if there is a way, could you please tell me? Please bring back the clubs. Thanks.
HES COMING FOR ME 1/5
i should tell annyeong so he doesnt kill me
PERFECT AND BEST LANGUAGE LEARNING APP 5/5
By Madison Cochran
I had only used it for 3 weeks now and I had done my Spanish lessons every day now and I am already learning a lot of Spanish! If I run out of hearts or get a question wrong I don’t have to run for my life nor it say “that’s wrong run for your life” when I get a question wrong or lose all of my hearts! It is the best app ever! Please download and prove that duolingo isn’t really that bad!
For me I just want to listen to music while playing but it cuts off the music every time the game says something

Doesn’t want you to learn 1/5
By Chummy chum chums
Duolingo has stupid “life” system that prevents you from continuing after you get a few prompts wrong. The only reason it was implemented was to be a cash grab for duolingo plus.
Please read 1/5
By RV Productions In The Mix
I’m hiding in my room and the Duolingo took the kids faster than Karen.
I love this app but it doesn’t have the language I want to learn! It would be awesome if they could add Tagalog (Language of the Philippines) Many people want to learn but can’t find apps for it, this app is effective and reliable so it would be great.
Great app but 4/5
I LOVE this app!! It has changed so much for the better over the years & is truly great for language learning. I love that you all are constantly making it better. BUT..... I hate that you took away the option to designate that you made a typo! It wouldn’t be a big deal except that there’s the stupid health bar that depletes when you get something wrong from a simple typo. Soooo frustrating. I don’t understand the need for the health bar in the first place. I just want to learn and practice a new language — no games, no extra bells and whistles. But because there’s a “health bar” and a game aspect to it, I can’t even practice what I want to if my health bar depletes, which 90% of the time is because I typed “quierp” instead of “quiero.” Stupid stuff. Either get rid of the health bar or bring back typo corrections and you would get 5 stars from me.
I love this app 5/5
I’m on day 294🤗. However, about 14 Oct the app changed the “gem award” and today, nothing was provided. As you know, these gems 💎 help continue participation.
I’m up to day 486. I truly enjoy my French time each day. The new competition is fun.
Negative: At the completion of each level, 50 gems 💎 are provided, with the offer to double if watch add. DOUBLE does not appear consistently, for many days.
Looks like I wrote a similar comment nearly 200 days ago.
The recently changed format has provided great review, but will likely change again before I catch up to my previous position
After yesterday’s comments posted. The DOUBLE problem disappeared and doubles were posted. Now, the problem is back.
Later today, upon completion of a practice for health, a ban “watch ad for more health” appears, but does nothing when pushed(twice in a row).
Same kind of problem as above, banners not responding.
I’m in the third round? With 80 points. Just completed two lessons and still have 80 points. Hard to advance at this rate. I have been active for 497 days. Have no other way to contact you when the app screws up.
THANKS. Correction posted. THANKS
Just began new league 8:20 pm. Completed 3 lessons—no credit, still sitting at 0. Leader is at 15
I think Duolingo is really fun. I thought it would be boring and take forever to learn Japanese but it only took me 1 month! It gives you little by little and now look at me I started from not knowing it at all to 70% of Japanese learned. I rate this 5 stars
He’s coming 5/5

Duolingo is coming to your house at 3AM
Great Work 5/5
Such a useful app and people have put in a lot of work to make this platform really useful for learning! Great Work, please keep it up
I’m very irritated that when typing an answer, the “done” at the bottom right of the keyboard submits your answer. I will be typing and accidentally hit it because I’m typing quickly or my fat thumbs hit it, which makes me miss the question. I feel like only the “check” button you actually press should submit it.
Why do you call this free, you call this free and encouraging when I can’t even use your app if I’ve made enough mistakes you limiting my learning by telling me to do better? I can’t when I can’t even take a course
It teaches me but yells at me 4/5
It’s mean to me when I don’t go on it frequently
Love it! Just one thing 5/5
By Fredrick Von Pepperhiemer
I love this app!!! I’m learning Portuguese and it couldn’t be a more helpful tool helping me on my way to fluency! 5 out of 5 stars, I love it!!!
One thing for the developers:
I recently went on vacation with no access to cell service. I wanted to keep learning Portuguese while I was away and I had a 95 day streak going and I figured the offline mode was perfect to keep my streak going. I did my offline lessons everyday and actually advanced farther along in my lessons and I actually hit a 99 day streak!! Unfortunately, when I reconnected to in the internet all of the lessons that I did off line vanished along with my 99 day streak!!!! I was very proud of my streak and I almost had 100 days 😫😫😫 Please restore my streak or find a way to fix offline lessons. Preferably both because I really want my 99 day streak back!
Thanks for listening,
A Happy Duolingo Learner
