    I always used to perceive learning a language as hard but Duolingo made it so easy and enjoyable. This is a must have app.
  • Request

    By A Five Star Fan
    Thank for this app! But could you also add Icelandic and Afrikaans on too? Also I founding Hebrew hard to learn, because it uses a different alphabet than, for an example, the Romantic languages. Could you create some lessons on the Hebrew alphabet? Keep doing good work!
  • Why would you mess it up?

    Привет! I never knew any Russian, and I (as a native English speaker) jumped in with zero experience and straying learning Russian with Duolingo. I love how interactive the app is, I like how you are constantly listening to the language you are learning. In general, the learning aspect is great and it works well for me. But the hearts! THE HEARTS! When you are struggling with a particular lesson, you need to keep working at it not give up! And especially not be forced to give up EVEN WHEN YOU ARE MOTIVATED TO LEARN MORE!!! I absolutely love this app, and it pains me to give it a bad review. I just hope that enough reviews complains about the heart system will motivate them to change their mind. If I could give a suggestion: keep the hearts, but instead of being able to “practice” and gain one heart, let the practice button take the user to a screen with a few different options (alphabet, vocabulary, phrases, grammar) to choose from. After selecting a topic, the user would then complete a mix of different questions that apply to that topic, with a focus on things that they have missed in the past. On completing that, the users hearts would be FULLY restored and maybe they could be shown a motivational message to encourage them to keep going. Duolingo developers, please listen to my recommendations and everyone else’s pleas. Remove (or at least change) the heart system. It makes learning a new language a tedious and frustrating task. No one likes it.
  • Great app but hate the lives

    By Jackiefaraj
    I love this app, it’s super helpful but the only reason I can’t give it a 5 star is because it’s unfortunate that when you are trying to learn a language and you get something wrong they take a life a way. There shouldn’t be lives like a game when I comes to learning a new language. It’s just discouraging when you lose a heart when you get something wrong while learning.
  • Pay to learn

    3
    By ghostgurl96
    While I understand the app can and should charge for premium content, there’s no way to beneficially use the app for free. You are allowed a very limited amount of mistakes and once you run out of the “hearts” it ushers you to pay for the premium app. On top of this, you are bombarded with ads pretty frequently given the fact you’re only allotted 5 or less mistakes. It’s disheartening (no pun intended) because I can’t really learn anything if I’m kicked out the app for making mistakes so quickly! I would love to pay for the app but it’s just far to expensive for the content that’s offered.... and that’s after the 60% off. I do believe this app is good but it needs to be more balanced.
  • Great app that is absolutely infuriating from time to time

    By new girl 2012 2 1
    This a great app to learn a new language. However, some language classes from English have clearly been written by people who are not truly bi-lingual. German-English and Spanish -English seem to be fine. Portuguese seems to have been written by a team that is only moderately fluent in English.
  • If the whole world speaks two languages and you don’t...

    5
    By Revalev
    It’s not hard or time consuming to learn a language. When a family doesn’t speak the language of their country it’s usually their kid who does. Because they’re flexible. Adults DECIDE they can’t. Decide that you can. It’s easy. It’s fun. Just do it while you’re on the toilet. Or instead of social media on your break. Speak Irish. Or Klingon. Or Spanish so that you can meet your coworkers.
  • Hearts

    I dont like how you have a certain amount of hearts because it gets boring. Im trying to learn a new language and I feel like the app doesnt let me learn.

  • Blocked by inappropriate test

    2
    By School of the Ages
    To get past a certain level, I have to pass a test that includes grammar and vocabulary not taught in the prior lessons. I can’t take any more lessons to get to that level of knowledge, and repeating the old lessons won’t help since their content is different from what it on the test. What nonsense is this? I haven’t seen it mentioned in other reviews so I am mentioning it here.
  • The program is very educational! Thanks

  • They intentionally make the web version worse

    1
    By Neama D.
    They intentionally make the web version different and worse than the mobile app, then you run out of hearts on the app and cannot practice. Stop intentionally making your product worse just so people spend more money on it.

    By FP1585
    I wish there was an opt out option for the "Leagues." I absolutely hate the competition aspect of this otherwise INCREDIBLE app. I am a plus member and love so much about it. I'm also seeing improvements in my language skills. But being in leagues really makes this way way way less enjoyable for me and I often find myself not wanting to practice and not enjoying it as much.

  • Not happy with it

    3
    By Wolfi228
    I’ve had this app now for about a month and a half. I am 50 days in. Learning Italian. This program goes from 0 to 100 in no time. First of all it progresses way too quick, second, not a lot of explanation. It does have a short Tips section but most of the time it does not help at all explaining grammar etc. And third, it teaches you sentences you will probably never EVER use, instead of just teaching you conversations for traveling to that specific country who’s language you want to learn. I will keep going and see where this goes. For now, only three stars for this.

    By mzamani nick
    Duolingo has become progressively worse over time. If you want to learn to speak French then I would highly advise against using this app. However, if you want to play a few games and learn to say hello and some other useless phrases then this app is for you. Similarly, if you are fluent and want to brush up on your skills then the app could work as well. Duolingo is not helpful for anyone who wants to learn to speak French. Poor lessons, weak translations, constant errors, app bugs and crashing, and horrible service are all contributing factors. The app also crashes and is inconsistent. The developers push to add new lessons, but they don’t check them beforehand and they are filled with problems. They will do something good, once, and then never come back to it. One step forward, two steps back with this app.
  • The original app was way better birthday

    By BksCooldude
    People who made the original app got it right. Whoever change the app is an a*^hole. Used to be able to play as many games as you wanted now they make it to where you mess up you can’t try again. Idiot move. If I messing up I should be able to trying until I get it right. The original App I would give five stars to. This app is not worthy. 👎🏾.

    By mad person😡😡😡
    I am half Mexican and I barely knew Spanish this really helps and I can’t full speak just yet but that’s because I just started. And if I’m being honest do not get Duolingo plus because it would be useless to have unlimited hearts. The reason I keep trying to get better is because I run out of hearts and that makes me want to try harder. I think plus useless but maybe others don’t. That is my honest opinion. But I love the way the app helps😁 I was very pleased.
  • Fix it, then 5 stars.

    By hahahahahaa1223482992
    I submitted the reviews, but it is not uploaded to the recent reviews column. The app suggest words that make Non-native English speakers to repeat after sentences such as "I have a stroke," "you are a farmer," "I eat spiders," and "That's impossible." Meanwhile, it makes the users to refer the others with positive and successful words. As I already mentioned, people with intelligence will realize that the app have ill-intent of giving the non-natives negative placebo effects. Fix it. Not worth the money.
  • Very good way to learn, BUT…

    2
    By John Sisak
    This app is a good teacher, and fun, but the lesson authors subtly try to advance the LGBT agenda in the lessons and in the lesson tips, with sentences like “He gives his husband a ring”, which can be flagged by users as problematic in lessons, but not in the lesson tips, so parents should allow children to use it only with guidance.

    By Housewife247
    I really love this app but for me as a parent I would love to create an account for myself and be able To create separate profiles for my kids. It would be so much easier to just be able to switch between profiles. Plus you can only signup using one email. So hope in the future you guys can fix this for us parents.
  • Fix the bugs please

    By SeekingChaos
    This is a great app. However, I tried to take a placement test, it crashed, wouldn’t let me take the placement test and then I have to pay gems or get premium just to test out more than one level at a time? Yikes. Either this is a terrible bug or a deliberately bad way of annoying people into paying more money.

  • Bots Affect Leagues

    3
    By Woweyer
    I have been using duolingo daily for almost a year now and have thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s helped me learn different languages, but the “leagues” has been a point of issue. Oftentimes there is one user who is an absurd amount over the rest of the league to the point where there’s no chance of catching up. This week in particularly there were multiple “users” with over 28,000 xp in a single week vying for the “top spot”. I love what this app offers but think that until they are able to prevent bots and spoofers from invading the site, I can’t give it a better rating than a 3 out of 5.

    Keeps asking me words I don’t know and have no frame of reference to guess. Also wants me to spell words I literally can’t because it has letters that don’t exist on an English keyboard, then I lose points for getting it as right as possible. Great way to waste time and learn nothing.
