It's not perfect, but it is a great way to learn a language or to brush up on one. They contnually upgrade, which is nice except that you get used to how it works and then it changes. I have gone through 2 major changes while learning one language, and on one of them I felt like the change set me back, progress-wise. I miss easy access to grammar rules, verb conjugations, etc. But Duolingo is surprisingly effective even without them. A tiny lesson each day is much easier to stick to, too.

So far, it was good. There arent too much ads, and all of them are skippable after a few seconds. however, ive been having a problem with the audio. It makes noise for whenever i get something correct, but when im trying to listen to the voice for the speaking practice the audio won't play, and ive even made sure that the volume was all the way up, but i still couldnt hear it. But, other than that issue, its a good app to have if you wanna learn a new language.

The app is great and a good way to keep yourself learning a language every day. However, I have a bug from the Japanese lessons that has been annoying to deal with: The pronunciation option is really buggy. Sometimes I turn it off, but if i come back to the app later it might start showing pronunciation again even though it's off, and I have to turn it on and off again. Sometimes the romanized pronunciation shows when I have the Japanese selected. I hope these issues can be addressed. Great app
