Easy to learn a new language I use this app daily and I am actually learning! It isn't boring and it notifies you how fluent you are by precentage lol it keeps me motivated. Duo lingo has worked better than any other methods I have tried for learning languages. I did not know more than 2 Spanish words when I started and now I can have small conversations with people the speak spanish. I can also can read parts of Spanish and I have only been on the app for almost a month!
Absolutely love it I've been using it for over a year and love it. Now my 8 yr is using it and he enjoys it. I have tried other programs and this one works best for me. Spend 10 minutes at least a day and you will learn. Only reason I'm not as advanced as I should is because I stopped for about 6 months but I'm back at it in full swing. The only complaint I have is it teaches both Latin and European Spanish and doesn't really say if it's Latin or European. I want to know both but would like to know the difference.
Not in-depth enough. One downside is that I cannot tap on a word from a lesson I've learned before and refresh my memory of how that word is used. After practicing lesson 1 from food category of Spanish after learning rice, egg, chicken, cheese, and fish. All I practiced was fish. I cannot learn how other words are used if I only practice one from the lesson. I need a challenge in order to learn properly and efficiently, and these lessons aren't long or detailed enough.
Great accessibilty PROS: Uses a mixture of reading, speaking, and pictorial learning, which is a great, balanced way to learn. As an app on your phone, this is ready to go at anytime. CONS: Some of the vocabulary introduced early on, I've been told by some native Viet speakers and Japanese, is not preferred/commonly used. However, I'm fairly sure this is high quality for the wonderful price of FREE.
I would give 5 stars, but mobile version needs solid improvements The lessons are great, I really love Duolingo and use it everyday. This mobile version needs real improvements, though. This app doesn't give you the theory like the web version does. I miss it a lot when learning German and French that are so full of details on plurals and genders. The most recent versions do not show how many XP to the daily goal when the app is opened for the first time, I always have to open the app twice to see this. This version did not change as stated in changelog.
Really good! My husband and I have been having a lot of fun learning with this. My only complaint is that some of the languages have less spoken examples of the words than others, for instance the Irish lessons have less than the German lessons. Other than that it is really good. It's a very fun, enjoyable app that helps me learn something new!
