Duo is 👍 Definitely recommend 5/5
Love the app, just please add Latin and maybe another Native American language??? Also THANK YOU so much for putting in Esperanto, Navajo, and Hawaiian. Would love to see more moribund and interesting languages being added in the future! (Suggestions: Latin, Sioux or Yupik, Armenian, Sicilian)
Awesome App!!!! 5/5
Duolingo is an amazing app, I use it to learn Spanish and I recommended this app to my brother and he learns Japanese. We both love it, because it does not cost anything like the the other two Spanish apps I have tried and it really reinforces what you learn. There is a home page with different categories of words that you can learn. I love learning on this app and definitely recommend it to any one that is serious about learning a new language. Go try it!!
Please add dark mode! 5/5
By This is by far
Hands down, this app is entirely amazing for getting better acquainted with different languages and should be highly recommended. Only request would be to add a dark mode, which would be a bit easier on the eyes when studying at night.
Fix pls 2/5
By Marley benton
So at first I loved this app but I am experiencing problems like when I’m off the app when my health is gone it won’t give me any health I’ve been waiting one week for my health to go back up ONE WEEK and you shouldn’t even have health because every body makes mistakes and then you learn from that mistakes I didn’t know I was going to be punished for my mistakes and I said punished because I love to learn new things and no one is perfect not even god oh and you should have this thing that disables Siri so people don’t cheat you know what don’t do the Siri thing because I bet the app would glitch like mine has been doing and it would disable Siri forever but I’m not going to delete the app just in case but now I’m moving on to a better app
Pretty good 3/5
Overall decent app. I have used Rosetta stone too and I like Duolingo because it kinda fills in some “verbatim” translations that Rosetta leaves out. Duolingo is better at practicing grammar and spelling. Biggest grip would be when you run out of heath the practice exercises are pretty weak.. give a better practice exercise... I’m past translating “bread and water” 20 times 🙄..
By Felix P
Just started using the app to learn Portuguese and I’m enjoying it. Haven’t had a chance to apply what I’ve learned, but I expect that it’ll come handy.
Don't Believe "TRIAL" Period 3/5
If you do agree to trial period, it does NOT give you any upgrade for that supposed seven days (so you think that it did not upgrade) but when the seven days (the "trial" period) passes without you canceling, of course, because you didn't know you had to cancel because it did NOT show ANY indication that you were even using the upgraded version).
I really do love the app and have told others about it but this glitch makes it their business practice seen shady.
Learning Navajo 2/5
I love this app but for the Navajo section, there are a few bugs that need to be worked out. I can’t complete a level when I am spelling the words correctly with all accents in place and yet the app says I am incorrect, please fix!!!!!
French is repetitive and boring (at least the free stuff) 3/5
I don’t know how many times I’ve been asked to write or say “hi how are you” – in French. OK, I’ve got it – now let’s move on to something else – but it doesn’t seem to. So I’m giving up on Duolingo. It was fun at first but it’s gotten incredibly tedious and boring. So what if I’ve gone through 20 lessons without a mistake— as the app recently informed me. The reason I got through 20 lessons without a mistake is that they were pretty much all the same.
Love it 5/5
By curly stephie
This is a great app! Motivating and easy to use. Highly recommend!
Friend feature not working 1/5
I actually love this app, just want to get you guys to make it so I can add friends. I hit follow, it says following, then I look at my friend group and it says no one still. I will update my review once fixed.
Great language app! 5/5
Still at the basics of learning Italian and Spanish but this app is awesome. Instead of browsing Facebook or Instagram you could learn a language. I think this feature is new but the little light bulb icon is awesome. Lays out the rules of the conjugations and gives you important info. Of course I don’t use it as often as I should but when I do I feel like I’m actually learning! Excited to continue. Thanks Duolingo. :)
It is fun and very educational 5/5
By ray the maniac🤘🏻🌟
I like this add it teaches very well right now i’m on French.
The one thing that I do not like is when it tells you to speak
You could say anything and it will still processing it
But it’s my only grief with this app
Otherwise it’s a very nice app
If you’re looking for something for another language
Then you should use this
Why am I wrong? 3/5
I will give this app 5 stars if it starts explain WHY I’m wrong when I miss a question. Giving the correct answer isn’t enough, I need to know why so I don’t keep repeating the same mistake.
iOS more limiting than Android version 4/5
If you make too many mistakes on the iOS version, they stop you from continuing the lesson plan (need to pay, wait, or practice many times before lesson plan is available). Android version allows you to make as many mistakes as you make.
I’m loven it ! 5/5
By 😉ILS 2.0
It is a great place to learn Spanish and I only had a short timeframe to learn it I have learned so much !! But of course that’s probably because I do 20 minutes and over of Duolingo like to start as soon as I get up and then end the day with a little bit but it pays off. I’m hoping you’ll do Duolingo also. It is such a good app! I have so many things I need to describe here like the health if you don’t have all your health then you can’t start a new lesson and you can practice to get it back. Also there’s these germs you can learn for like doing certain things and you can buy things in the shop like there’s a sling for 1000 gems that we can learn like Proverbs with I earned it at a special place you can get like bonuses by doing this many courses or something and if you think you’ve gotten through enough you can well actually if you think you know enough you can take this test to skip the course or something you can skip to the next level ! And if you don’t know what you can tap the letter no not the letter the word and it will tell you what it means so you can remember it. Again I hope you sign up for Duolingo it’s really good anyway audios(I think that’s how you spell it you know the Spanish for goodbye ha ha Ha ha ha)
The free version is terrible now 2/5
The free version used to be easy to use and fun. But recently it’s been so inconvenient to do anything and there’s alway the “this thing you’re doing would be so much easier if you paid for it!” It’s such a cash grab for the paid version, it’s ridiculous. I even vouched that at least Duolingo was still free even after lingodeer decided not to be and I left them a review giving them crap about it.
Here’s the thing, I’d happily pay $1-2 per month for this app, but any more I can’t justify it as a broke college student. Rosetta Stone is worth it’s price, but Duolingo isn’t Rosetta Stone.
LOVE THIS APP!! 5/5
I’m currently learning French and I’m really enjoying the lessons. Although, I wish the duolingo app would include the “Tips” like it does on the desktop version and with Spanish. Whenever I don’t understand something it just says i’m wrong but I don’t know why, so I have to go to some website or ask someone before I can know why I got the question wrong. Otherwise, I definitely recommend to anyone wanting to learn the basics of a language!!
Please add Arabic and Persian 5/5
How is it that you can learn Klingon and Hawaiian on this app, but not Arabic and Persian? Especially Arabic, since it’s a very popular language spoken by many. It’d be nice to add those languages because many people including me are trying to learn them
Amazing concept. Broken execution 2/5
2 key points of feedback.
The iOS app feedback button in profile is broken. Lol
I am doing Chinese and the teaching process is new word pin yin but no English definition. I get the exercise but never learn the meaning of the world which reduces the value of the lesson and app
Please fix these problems
Fun and good to use! 5/5
By Redwolf fleerkfjjjj
Very good and cool
Good method, but.... 3/5
By Backwoods Bum
Only method that’s worked for me. I recommend it.
However if you experience bugs, don’t be surprised if feedback questions/problems never get answered or fixed.
Also if you’re good with verbal language, but bad at spelling, this app’s recent update is not at all forgiving like the old one was. One letter off, and you got the anwser wrong. Even if you misspell in you’re native language.
Best app 5/5
Best app if you want to learn more languages, probably the easiest learning tool.
Keeps freezing 3/5
When I want to watch an ad for more health, the app has been freezing often lately. Never used to have this problem.
Great App! 5/5
I think Duolingo is one of the best ways to learn a language. It's well made and delivers on the promise of free high quality education. The only thing I would add to the app would be the option to learn Morse code. It is a language I have always wanted to learn. I would recommend this app to anyone.
Great way to learn languages Big problem 3/5
I tried the app I was having fun with French and German try to learn, but there is one thing that needs to stop. The heart feature, if you get to many wrong it makes you wait four hours. Please for the users own good get rid of it.
I love this app! I just wish Latin was on there
Confidence Booster 5/5
By La Hermosa Abuela
I actually use 3 complimentary modalities for language study. The portability of this app is fantastic for studying on the fly. The division into categories also aids in focusing what might be needed immediately. Due to those 2 facts this has been my go-to as we prep for a trip to Spain. The other 2 programs provide more depth for understanding sentence structure and conjugations but for some accelerated learning Duolingo is perfect.
Finally a productive way to kill downtime 5/5
Duolingo is outstanding. Instagram is ok, nice to see photos but apps like that full time in such a neutral to even negative way.
This you are learning right away!
Awesome app!! 5/5
By Geeta Saigal
I absolutely love this app, It’s very easy to help me learn and the fact such a great app is free BLOWS me away! I would definitely recommend this app to my friends!
Keeps you engaged 5/5
Makes you feel good about learning. Can’t reconnect Duolingo enough. Love it!
Muy buena táctica de aprendizaje 5/5
Es muy practico
They expect you to spell very hard words and sometimes the simple ones are translated wrong. So annoying.
It’s a free quality app. I wouldn’t spend money on it for sure.
I love this game but.... 4/5
I love this game l. It’s great, but there’s just one problem. Health. You have to achieve your daily goal everyday but how can I do that if I run out of lives and it takes 5 hours to give me one life? I can’t even earn new ones, so how can I achieve my daily goal? Please Duolingo crew if you see this please fix this quirk
This game is fun and challenging.
Thanks. My mom is enjoying it too!
Learning Spanish 5/5
Loving this way of learning a new language
It keeps marking my answers wrong 4/5
I love this app, but it keeps marking my answers wrong even though they are write. I think it's because my phone automatically corrects the first letter of the sentence and makes it capitol.
Load time is so long my phone went to sleep 2/5
Twenty minutes trying to get a lesson to load this morning before I gave up. If I were a new user, this would for sure have me deleting. Guess I'll be depending on my streak freeze for now.
So much potential 3/5
I really do like the app but I’m disappointed in the levels. Spanish was my first language and even though I haven’t spoken it since early childhood and never written it, I do honestly know el hombre, la mujer etc and it’s incredibly disappointing to be spending lesson after lesson on things I actually know. I don’t have a lot of time each day for the app and at the snails pace it’s progressing I honestly don’t know when I will get to a lesson that will teach me anything. So to the creators of this app I really support you but your initial assessment needs work. I will update my review depending on how many more lessons of pan and manzanas I have.
What about “persian language” ?! 5/5
By محمّد رضا ۲۰۲۵
Please add “persian language” to this app... thanks you so much 😇
Duolingo is amazing! 5/5
Duolingo is full of excitement and learning I love this app and you should too!
I love this app, it’s can teach you many different languages. I would definitely recommend this if you want to learn a new language or two.
Where's the Arabic? 4/5
I have been enjoying this for Spanish. I looked on the list to add Arabic. I don't find Arabic. The list starts with Chinese. Where is the Arabic? I would like to do this Duolingo program for Arabic but I don't see how to get it. Please advise.
By sweets dreamer
Great experience except you will have to change your keyboard to type the words in the language you choose to learn.
Voices-I prefer male voice 4/5
One drawback to this good app is I cannot choose male vs female voice. Female voice is harder to understand ex: Yo sounds like Jo. Ella sounds like Asia. El sounds like E. In general I rather hear a male voice. Otherwise, the app is good.
Love it. 4/5
I sometimes miss the old version that allowed you to practice conversation. But the updated version is still good
Easy habit tool!! 5/5
I really enjoy learning Vietnamese on this app. It’s awesome that they make it free and accessible for anyone which gave me time to consider upgrading, which i did. It’s well worth the money if you want to force yourself to be invested in learning. Every sentence in every lesson is a digestible chunk of learning. I’m particularly bad at listening comprehension so the sound bites have been amazing help.
- having the option to listen to Vietnamese in different dialects (south and moth dialects are equally common but I find it unnecessary to learn the extra exceptions within the north Vietnamese dialect myself since I rarely interact with northern Vietnamese folks)
- having the option to view a list of all the vocab words (bonus: with example usage) in a section once you go through all of them because I’m not always able to write them all down when I go through a lesson (sometimes I’ll learn on my commute to and from work). It would be nice to have a reference instead i needing to go through random lessons to find particular phrases
By kpop candy
It’s a great way to take you step by step into the world of a korean new language world and it’s helping me not quite thanks
I don’t see learning English option 1/5
Where’s English learning option?
