This is the best approach I have ever used, it's so addictive. It's like a game but you're learning a new language for me and the wife we are competing with each other and helping one another it's great fun. The whole programme is designed to to help you learn a language in what I think is the easiest way. Fantastic I have recommended this to all my family and friends and they love it too you can learn when you want and for how long you want, it's the best teacher I have ever had. Try it for yourself you won't be disappointed guaranteed
Finally! Japanese is here. I've been waiting for this to happen. Thank you. Now to get back to studying.
Sooo helpful! Very comprehensive.
Edit 06/22: Stars deducted for the most recent update that added the timer to strength exercises. This should have been an option where people could choose what works for them. I'm probably going to look at other software to continue my studies as I find this extremely distracting, and frankly, unnecessary. This reminds me a lot of another company's expensive language software - but this is laid out in more logical lessons and it's free. I feel I've learnt a lot in a short time. I would like to see other languages added over time, even if they are premium addons.
The timer puts me back in the lessons at school that are the reason I don't speak any other languages. I really liked this app until then. Now it's like all the times you were shamed at school. But your phone is shaming you. I have no idea what they were thinking. Avoid the shaming.
This is without doubt the best language learning app I've ever seen. It has the compulsion & competitiveness of a game while giving you a thorough grounding in a new language. Well done Duolingo ! A little more theory would help extend the usefulness of an already excellent piece of software. Edit: still great. Would like to be able to disable duo popping up to 'encourage' during practice. Obviously aimed at younger learners, but is just an annoying distraction for me.
