Great app to build vocabulary, and features like lingots, prizes and challenges make you want to keep playing. I am experiencing various issues though. The tortoise button doesn't work anymore, and the Idioms slot doesn't t turn gold no matter how much I practice! These bugs hurt the customer experience and would need to be fixed.
This is a great app. I just wish they updated Welsh along with all the other languages. I've been trying to learn Welsh in Duolingo, but it is in such a primitive form compared to all the other languages on the app. Alot of stuff is not explained, making you research it to try to understand it, but alot of the time you can never find anything. I love the app, but PLEASE update the Welsh language!
It's a good app for learning. Even though there is a lot of limitations in the translated English-language, they are doing their best to teach you the language. Even if your answer is correct, the app says it's wrong. That's because they have have not included the alternative answers. ( what I said is only a suggestion) But... You are getting the best for free.
Where is the third bonus (Christmas) skill in the German tree?? I just updated the app and as Dec. 14th still nothing, I have over 200 lingots to spend and the third bonus skill (which by the way, I have way passed it, I'm almost done with the tree) slot is still nowhere to be found in the Duolingo store. Am I doing something wrong? Please add the third bonus skill to the German tree, pretty pleeeeease....
Very good app, but works best if you are taking a language course outside of Duolingo. It's great for building vocabulary and practicing grammar, but if you don't know the basics (alphabet, conjugations, etc), it will be very challenging as you progress, and probably not very beneficial. Best for practice, not learning languages from scratch.
Fun and user friendly I am obsessed with this app and work on the desktop version too. I have only been using them a few days but have learned a ton. I always hit the barbell to practice each lesson as I go. This is an awesome free resource!
