A really fun and casual way to learn new languages! However, I would suggest at the beginning of each lesson to have an overview of each new word, showing how it's pronounced? I find myself winging the lessons often and not retaining the information. Other than that, Duolingo is a fantastic alternative to paid classes!
Working on my Spanish. And I credit this to helping me pass my Spanish class. I do wish they would have a "rules page" or something of the sort. In English we have a "rule book", if there could be a Spanish equivalent. That would be amazing. (The rule book helps for us dyslexics out there. It is a set of rules that are applied to the English language, such as "I" before "e" or "tryed" is not correct. You drop the "y" and put "ie", so "tried".)
It has become more and more of a begware throughout updates. It started out only appearing after completing exercises, where it can be skipped directly. Then it started appearing more commonly. Now it even shows up when one quits and exercise, and the bottom part is replaced by a "Go ad free" button, bringing you straight to the purchase screen. It's trying to make the ads more annoying, which makes the experience a whole lot worse.
It's a great app! But one thing that fustrating me sometimes (actually alot of the time) is that the app would quiz me on the words it hadn't taught me yet. Also I activated a streak freeze, but it didn't keep my streak! Also can you put a way to delete messeges on in the club, because I have A WHOLE BUNCH of annoying messages, since people are in my club. Also maybe you could make the messeges only for friends. But other than those 3 things the app is awesome! 😄
I went off it for a bit. Then when I came back thought "I'll never get to where I was before". Then when I started I realized I still remembered almost everything I learned before. Even though it's been months. The app really does teach you
Pretty outstanding. Only thing I would change is to have a function that lists the vocabulary so you can refer back to it without having to redo a lesson.
