Useful for getting exposure to a new language, good for getting your feet wet. The timed matching exercise are okay, but the words don't load fast enough. Can't possibly complete it in time if I'm waiting for the animation to finish and the words to slowly appear costing me seconds. It forces you to use a power-up to get three stars, which feels like cheating. Just my opinion.

Doulingo is rapidly helping me learn French, and is fun and easy, especially since you can make things repeat if you need. I highly recommend duolingo. (Edit:) Not so fond of the new update, I have not even seen the characters that make the app seem so alive. Also, they just extend the courses and make them more dragged out. If they changed this back to the way it was before, I'd appreciate that.

My wife (who has MS) and I have been users and Super Duolingo subscribers for years. Apparently they've just rolled out an Android update that disables autosuggest/correct and voice to text on your keyboard while using the app, presumably believing that this helps you learn better. It doesn't, this is a bug, not a feature, and not only that, it's an accessibility issue for people with disabilities like my wife. It's now unusable to us, and we can't even get a refund for the next year we paid for
