Duolingo is awesome! I've tried Rosetta stone and it wasn't nearly this good. Duolingo works out each part of the way you learn, practice, and understand languages. I totally recommend it!
Bite size language learning It's certainly quite fun to use this. I've used it daily for just over a week so I'm not sure about its long term potential but I do think it's going to help me get into the language. Some of the words are unclear sometimes, like 'ruhig' in the German course. The strength bars and review methods are great features.
Thorough and easy to use I can go as fast as I want and am not asked to upgrade or buy. The questions aren't too easy, but stay at my pace
Learning made easy! I get up in the morning and drink my coffee and learn Spanish. It doesn't get better that that. Thank you for this great app!
Getting better... and worse Duolingo doesn't actually teach the user anything. Instead, it quizzes you on what you already know (or don't). Sure, you can pick up things here and there by playing--mostly figuring out what the game wants you to enter as an answer--but there's no instruction going on here. ETA: Typing out long, idiosyncratic sentences for grammar is the most boring thing imaginable. -1 star just for that.
Learning dutch and german I like the fact that the app lets you earn Lingots when you've got a good practice session in and I can't wait to get done with dutch and become officially fluent! There used to be an algorithm that had you restart the session if you got too many mistakes in but I don't see that anymore I guess it's been scraped ?
