Awesome, Love it! This is an excellent language program; they make it fun -- better than all the phone games that I see others playing (no disrespect meant to anyone), and I am actually learning something while i collect "lingots" at each level I pass. Plus, it gives you a rating on your progress and continues to challenge you so you don't forget what you've learned over time. In my opinion, it's just the best! Thank you for developing such a great way to learn!
Fantastic app I have never felt compelled enough to leave a review for an app before, but this is so good it deserves that at the very least. It's an addictive way to learn a language and has a range of exercises to get you writing, reading and speaking different languages. Can't recommend this highly enough- especially as it is free!
Great, But Could Be Even Better The only thing that this app is missing is offline capability. It would be great if lessons could be downloaded to be used and practiced without being connected to a network. I spend so much time on the subway with little to no cellular service and always wish to be able to use Duolingo at this time.
Incredibly easy and addictive I'm using this app to learn German, Spanish, Russian, and Welsh. It's fantastic. I'm about 31% fluent in German, and I feel confident enough to where I can have a basic conversation. I'm going to keep working on my Spanish Russian and Welsh so I can get fluent in those too. My only issue with Russian is that it doesn't teach you the alphabet. But just practicing with Russian Cyrillic on will help you pick it up.
Excellent, but lacking on grammar Great app, useful reminders that aren't irritating. Great incentives to learn. The way it paces you and you can strengthen your skills is great as well. Very helpful! Only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because of the lack of grammar, currently learning Italian and I would like explanations on why certain verbs end the way they do. But overall really good, especially as it's free!!!
Great app for keeping your skills sharp, and learning new skills. I studied Italian in college and have used duolingo to help me keep my skills sharp. The fun gamified lessons make it easy to spend a couple minutes each day learning. Although repetitive at times, it's really how you have to do it in order for retention.
