App is great. But it keeps crashing on my phone. It works good for a day, than on the next day starting screen shows for 1s and exits. Works good again after reinstall.
Easy and fun! Love to use it, I think I would never have started learning another language if it wasn't for this app. It is easy to understand and really good to use. Daily reminders keep me on my streak (350 days already!) and it only takes few minutes a day. If there were a bit.more randomness to the sentences it would be even better. Many sentences are already burnt to my mind. :)
A very good program but stops short of being excellent I speak several languages and need to upgrade a few. Duolingo is far superior to Mango, offering as much Freedom or hand-holding as you need. It lets you back if you are weak in an area. But I would like to see two changes before giving it 5 stars. First a simple vocabulary list, growing as you learn, containing both singular and plurals, and using masculine, feminine, and neutral forms. My spelling needs work. Secondly, a series of conjugation drills would be priceless. Otherwise an excellent app.
Amazingly simple, simply amazing The only thing I could complain about is that the sentences sometimes make no sense at all. However, the app is so well made that you actually remember what you've been learning from the start because they are smart enough to regularly make you re-use the vocabulary and stuff... I would give the app 8 out of 5 :-)
Great, very useful Very good for trying to learn a new language. I love using it, why then 4 stars and not five? Lack of explanation for the cases. I'm using ot for German and it doesn't stop to explain why the cases on words change, but corrects it when you use the wrong one. I know from previous language classes why but for those who have never taken a case language it can cause a lot of confusion.
Gives a sense of progress.. I'm using Duolingo for Italian language and am enjoying it thus far. My only gripe would be that not all of the sentences are widely usable but provide good comic relief ('A turtle doesn't read'). Irrespective of that..you still get a good sense of grammar and sentence structure with this App. Even with as little as 10 minutes a day you get a sense of progress that spurs you on. Duo is a good place to start for those who want to dip their toes into learning a new language. Recommend.
