Why can't I learn a language in English and another in Spanish? I would like to learn both Catalan and Russian, but can not due to the application. If I select Catalan, Russian disappears from my courses list, and vice versa. Please allow users to learn these languages together.
A true help in accountability The app works very well. I like how it keeps track of which words you are weaker at and pushes you to continue to work on them. I also like how it rewards you for practicing your new language daily.
Mostly brilliant way to learn vocabulary. Doesn't do much to help understanding of grammatical rules though. You do pick a lot of it up instinctively, but more understanding of a language helps rather than just learning words by rote.
I am in Spain and have not been asked to speak English because DuoLingo has given me practical vocabulary and enough sense for grammer and diction to sound like a demanding 5-year-old. Slunds funny, sure, but having only completed a dozen lessons, my fluency is merely 8 percent. But enough to understand buying train tickets, buy food in local markets, get directions, rent a car, buy diesel gas...and the program notes your mistakes as lessons to review on successive sessions.
Fantastic! I have rekindled an interest in learning a foreign language or two by using Duolingo. The double-or-nothing wagers for "lingots", stats, healthy competitive spirit among learners, chance to interact with people from across the globe and pose or answer questions from fellow learners, particularly native speakers of the target language, are all very motivating. Duo also offers the possibility to practice basic pronunciation , without boring a real native speaker. Tusen Takk, and Danke schõhn!
Tons of languages to offer There is a huge variety of languages to choose to learn from, but for the languages that have a different written system, you are not given the alphabet to learn, but are either expected to learn it as you go along or not learn it at all. Otherwise, this is a really great way to learn languages if you were not able to do it in the classroom or visit a country where the language is spoken.
Bug fixes and performance improvements.
