    I really do like it I think it’s a great app for many people wanting to learn “languages”My only wish is that they add ASL(American Sign Language)
  • Great app. Really helpful.

    Is there any way to cut out the man and just hear the woman speak? I am a man, but I feel like the woman is better at pronunciation and enunciation compared to the man. No offense bros.
  • App No Longer Suited for Intermediate Speakers

    2
    By yessireememe
    Duolingo removed the option to test out of large blocks of lessons for Spanish. So if you want to test yourself or more advanced areas you’re unable to test out of the lead ups, instead now have to test each lesson individually. There is an option to test out of an initial twelve lessons or so, but that doesn’t get you far.
  • Update ruined it

    3
    By Rebel Donut
    I used to love it until they put in the new update and there is the life system, I hate it. The new update ruined it for me, if Duolingo is reading things the life system isn’t working and driving ppl away, I am not gonna pay for plus just for this LIFE system.
  • Hate the health aspect

    4
    By Redhousegirl
    I love this app but the requirement for health drives me nuts. I’ve run out from silly mistakes (like a mistyped word on my keyboard or accidentally hitting check before I’m ready). Please get rid of the health. My husband doesn’t have it on his!!

    This game is great for the mind and very fun but the adds and constant nagging for Duolingo plus is very annoying. Less adds would be nice. Other than that I love this game and I love learning French. Please get this game!

  • Bad app have to spend money

    1
    By ddffeffdfftfdfgbthjffhio
    What is think this is the better because if you run out of lives you have to wait for hours or pay 79Dollars for 12 months so therefore I do not like this app I think you can find great language learning apps that don’t require spending money
  • Spectacular Concept

    By Parkerhopper
    I loved using this app. I learned German at a rapid rate and I even started learning another language. But now I can't study for long periods of time because of the heart feature. I'd like to be able to learn more languages and use the app much more but I am so limited now. Unless I pay money, of course. Please fix this.
  • Great app

    By livi9878
    This app is a fun way to learn other languages but I don’t like how if you run out is lives you have to wait another four hours to play unless you want to buy plus or take a test to get one life it stinks but I’d recommend this app
  • Fun and easy!

    Makes learning a new language enjoyable, great for beginners. Would highly recommend!
  • Tired of Losing My Progress

    By TooTall99
    I don’t want to have to keep starting over. It’s a tad annoying. Besides that, the app is perfect.
  • Excellent Language Learner App

    5
    By nynuts
    Very happy to be able to learn a new language that is feasible. You set how long you want to study a day and it reminds you when you forget. The way of teaching is fun and you’re most likely to want to continue. It’s free, not boring and even pronunciation is covered - when you have to repeat a sentence and record it. It will tell you if it sounds ok or not. Couldn’t believe I was actually delivering some foreign words in such a short span. Highly recommended!
  • Arabic?

    1
    By cmellenpsych
    I just downloaded Duolingo...I do not see Arabic as an option to learn. However, there are lessons provided to Arabic speakers for other languages. Have I missed something??? I was really looking forward to using this app...
  • It works!

    By lifelong learner 2
    A great way to learn to read, write, and speak in Spanish! I highly recommend this program.
  • Amazing but Just a Thought..

    5
    By Jimin's Jams Are Still Missing
    This app has me learning a lot of things (btw ARMYs trying to learn Korean this will help a lot) and it does a good job reminding me daily to do lessons, however, I feel like it would be a good idea to add in a different type of lesson. Before I learned the Korean alphabet (which I used YouTube for) I went to Duolingo and was confused about many things. I even quit Duolingo for a while because I thought there was no use. But after learning the alphabet and the sentence structures I actually used Duolingo correctly and now know how to make sentences. If Duolingo could have maybe explanation lessons where all the new users (as well as beginners of the language) have to do is read about the language, then maybe it will be easier to start. Maybe there can be explanation lessons on other topics as well. But for now, Thanks a lot Duolingo 💚💚💚
  • Health system still awful when the translation dictionary is this bad

    1
    By marmotzero
    About 50% of the questions that you get “wrong” on higher language levels aren’t actually wrong, they’re just the result of errors in the app’s translation system. So it’s pretty galling that the app punishes you for its own errors by trying to sell you micro transactions after it makes a mistake. You need to re-design your product
  • Affordable and effective

    5
    By DeSantaOregta
    I just got this app about 5 days ago and I'm in love with it. My friends recommend this app to me because I wanted to learn Japanese, and Rosetta Stone wasn't working out so well. I decided to try it out, and I was surprised. It made it way more fun and easier to learn. That same day I got the plus. I enjoy this app and will recommend it to so many people 🔥🔥🔥
  • APP great but extortion streak repair

    By Pfredy
    I have a subscription but it cost $6.99 to repair a streak!? Ridiculous extortion. Now I could care less about the streaks. Prefer to start over than give in to extortion.

    By Zaiv
    I enjoy this app but last night I was going to do my lesson (I was skiing at school and was gone most of the day), and it needed to be updated. I was getting tired and I was getting impatient and went to sleep. Now I’m going to cry because my streak of 39 days was lost to an UPDATE!!! I will still play but I’m going to have to earn my lost streak back.
  • Good game.

    By J da +
    I liked it as a whole but the paid version wasn’t that worth it. Other wise good for homework practice!
  • So helpful!

    5
    By Luru09
    I love Duolingo! It’s so helpful, because I already know lots of Spanish, and my Spanish class 1 was not teaching me anything. I learn so much more on duolingo than I do in class. The only suggestion I have is too make the keyboard in “clubs” a Spanish keyboard, so autocorrect doesn’t change all of your writing in Spanish. Keep up the good work!
  • The Crown System Is Broken

    1
    By Big Jen Garn
    The crown system is ultimately worthless when you do not lose crowns overtime. Without the progress tracking of the decaying skills, and once you complete a level you keep it forever, I was able to put down the app for six or seven months and still be at the same progress as before. This isn’t helpful when learning a language, because I guarantee I’ve lost some of the skills I’ve earned when I haven’t been practicing for so long. The point of Duolingo was that it helped direct me (and others) who do not have the attention span or discipline to track their own progress. With this new system, which doesn’t track what needs to be learned next or what needs to be reviewed, people might as well just get a book or take a class and learn from that. If we had the discipline to do what the new system makes us do, we would have learned languages from a book by now. Like I was saying, the crowns being there forever are unhelpful, and pretty much useless so who cares if the crown number fluctuates? Even if the crowns did start decaying at this point, I don’t think I would care enough to get them back. I, and a lot of others, prefer the old system where the decay tested your knowledge and molded to each person’s individual skills and told them what they needed to hone. The only people who like the new system (as I’ve observed) do not understand that they are not progressing.
  • Pro Version needs tweaking

    4
    By Deason26
    I enjoy this app and I would highly recommend it if you are looking to learn another language. It’s fun and enjoyable to use and I have to say that it works. My basic conversation has improved and I’m starting to understand more of the language as I hear it from the native speakers. With all of that, I do find one thing annoying...and that is the streak function. I had and I stress HAD well over 100 days of constant usage. Due to a situation beyond my control I lost my streak and and was reset to zero. Now the app is saying that I have to pay $13.99 to restore my streak. That’s insane considering I paid for the pro version! If you have the pro version then you should never have to worry about streaks!

  • Amazingly free

    5
    By cuaycx
    This app is amazing and it drills language learners on different aspects of learning a language: rote memory, pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, etc. The mini games and skill builder levels really help one keep track of one’s progress. Best of all, it’s free for everyone and doesn’t force users to pay for anything. Because of its user-friendly business model, I tend to watch the ads they provide as a way to support them!
  • Good Entry Level App

    3
    By M Mor
    I have been using this app to brush up on and enhance my spanish speaking skills. I feel that this app is best used for picking up and advancing reading skills. Its missing more conversational practice and individual sentence formation. I actually prefer the website over the actual app because you have the option to translate and English sentence to spanish without the wordbank at every level. And you can turn it on and off. I wish they would include that feature in the app also add more bonus skills. I have the plus subscription and am accumulating all these jewels with nothing to use them on. Not really getting a lot for $10/ month. I need more difficulty and variety. Overall i’d say its a good app for just getting a hint of a language. Maybe a duo lingo 2 intermediate level or something should be introduced.
  • Great language learning tool!

    By kpaul0913
    I absolutely love this app and all the updates that have been made. I only wish there was more reporting with it though so you could see your weekly and monthly progress. Also maybe a way to share you progress on social media accounts.
  • I love this app but have a suggestion

    By RaeRay1253
    This app is wonderful, especially since it now lets me learn high Valyrian from game of thrones. Hey, now that I mentioned games of thrones, I’d like to make a suggestion. I was wondering if you guys could let us learn Dothraki as well. It’s another game of thrones language.

  • Best Language Learning Game!

    5
    By bct2301
    I loved this app so much because it’s not just a boring app where you learn another language, it’s a fun and free educational game where you can learn different languages, and actually enjoy it! If you like Doulingo so much, you should also try out Tinycards, their other app where you can learn about all sorts of different things that were made by people like you! :) The only bad things about this app is that (1) you need internet connection if you don’t have cell service, and (2) there a fair amount of adds. But that’s a small price to pay for this app! <3 I would recommend this app to anyone that wants to learn another language.

    My mom 💜 was on Duolingo’s site when we were traveling to Amsterdam. She was learning German 🇩🇪, and I downloaded the Duolingo app. At first I planned to learn Spanish 🇲🇽 but gave up on that quickly because of the la and le 🤔. I started to learn German, didn’t go quickly with that. I went to French 🇫🇷, but it was just too hard to me. I went to Polish 🇮🇩, but let me just say, holy cow 🐄...I’m never going back to that. Just with the word “girl” 👧🏻, it’s “dziewczynka” (I spelled that correct because I copy pasted it from Google Translate 😂). But, I decided to learn Swedish 🇸🇪, and got into that very easily actually. I wrote down a bunch of Swedish words in a notebook 📓, and it’s really fun and easy. I’m still learning Swedish 🤓! I know I’m a nerd but Duolingo has helped me a lot 👍🏻! 5 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    By A Random Person That Exist
    This app is really amazing and I have learned so much from it but, the health is really annoying and takes forever for it to regenerate. I’m learning Spanish and are a beginner so, I’m making a lot of mistakes and it is so aggravating when I make a few mistakes and can’t begin to practice again for 5 hours and even then I only have to make one mistake and wait another 5 hours. It really is an amazing app but, this is so aggravating that I’m starting to search for other ways to learn Spanish.
