It's a little slow, and the fact that you have to be connected to the Internet to actually play it is the reason why I give it 4 stars instead of five. I've been trying to learn dutch but I'm still not so good at it. you can now have clubs on there with other people which is cool if you like a little competition, it helps keep me Interested anyway. 😊
This new update with the "Crown level" instead of the percentage of your fluency rubs me the wrong way. I've spent this entire week refreshing verbs and tenses (it was easy to do as you only needed to check the strength bar). Now none of the exercises show any progression, how am I supposed to know where I left off? Another problem is that I can't choose a specific set of words to refresh either, clicking on something like Past tense only takes you to a general exercise.
You have a wonderful app so far. I've started Swedish and I am currently trying to bring you Japanese course to where I need it so I can study during the summer months. The only issues I've come across are these in Japanese. 1. When the speaker says "Ha" she actually says "Wa". I understand why this might be a mistake though since the character for Ha is often used for Wa when it comes to particles. If you meant for it to sound like wa then i suggest changing what it is in romanji to wa too so confusion doesn't happen. 2. Is something I will double check on before I tell you.
The ads are awful, and it is too expensive to pay for ad free, be better off with Rosetta Stone if you are gonna pay. By itself i doubt you could really learn any language without something to teach you the Grammer rules, you won't know why or how things work. Also it needs to have a list or dictionary of the learned words to look over without having to do a lesson, and for it to explain the grammar and how words work together, like the rules on what words work and when.
This app used to be great. But now since Samsung updated the version of Android (or their overlay), this app slows down and grinds almost to a halt, rendering it unusable. And yes, it's the only app on my phone that does this. Disappointed.
Ever since I updated the app, it keeps saying I haven't practiced- even though I have. Because of this, it made me lose my 302 day streak!! I tried to email Duolingo, but they did nothing! Anyone else with the same problem?? Also, my friends on iOS have a practice feature called bots, but this still isn't available to me (on android) after many months of frequent updates. Why?? It is, however, a great way to learn new languages. 👍🌟🌟👍
