The app is nice, bit it's not even half as helpful as the full website version, so I find myself using the desktop version of the website on my phone just so I can get the benefits that aren't available in the app (e.g. the tips and notes section, and showing the gender of the nouns in lessons so you can use the correct conjugations.
Beautiful app for learning languages
Awesome! Ever felt empty after you finished a game (like the Witcher) or watched a series (like Rick and Morty)? That's because it's over. Forever. And after all that time you put into it, you have nothing to show. You can't take any of it into the real world. But with DuoLingo I'm learning German, and it's like playing a game. And after playing it, I don't get that empty feeling, because it actually made me a richer person. I actually have something to show for all my invested time. I have something to take with me into the real world. And what I take with me is mine for ever. This app makes your life richer. And it does it for free.
Overall it's an okay app, but it crashes a lot on my older phone. I also miss the notes and tips for each lesson that are visible in the website version. Also the treasure chest game when finishing your daily goal is kind of annoying since it takes a long time for me to load, and it doesn't help me anything in learning a language.
A fun and addictive way to get a handle on the basics of any language. My only gripe is that some of the Spanish words seem to be derived from Latin Spanish rather than Castillian (only about half a dozen words though). Other than that, it is a great tool, which I'd recommend to anyone looking into starting to learn a new language.
Do not make the mistake of pushing add a course unless you are 100% sure! I pressed add a course and it WOULD NOT let me exit until I added a course. After I chose a course when I tried to go back to my French course I realized all my progress had been deleted. Thanks a lot for throwing away 3 months of work.
