  • Great Free Language App

    By Previously Fat Guy
    I love this app. I've been using it for nearly a week and have learned over 100 words in another language. The only reason I didn't rate it a 5 is because of very the few bugs and there is not a way to see definitions of words you have learned from the app. Otherwise, awesome app. I'll be telling everyone about it.
  • Learning Chinese

    I've been using Duolingo to relearn my Chinese for a while now. At first, there wasn't anything to really complain about. Sure I typed something that makes sense to me but the program might not understand that they mean the same thing. Then I started to notice other things. I noticed that some words didn't match up to what I would remember. The word for we didn't look at all like how I remembered it to be. But then, I figured out that I have been learning simplified Chinese. Simplified Chinese is very different from what I had originally learned. By stating that your app can teach Chinese is wrong if you do not allow for people to learn both simplified and traditional Chinese. Both will appear in the world. They may not be different if you hear it, but reading and writing wise is very different and hard to do if you are not verse in both.
  • The “crowns” update ruined it.

    I don’t quite understand the reason SO MUCH had to be changed. I really enjoyed how in the previous versions, you could preview what was going to be taught in the lesson. Now we get is the topic and have to go in blindly with whatever they give you. I haven’t lost all my health before but apparently they’re just kicking people off the app for hours at a time when they do? Isn’t this app supposed to be free and open for continuous learning? That’s real-low guys :/ And that brings me to the incessant ad pushing. Watch an ad to do this and watch an ad to do that. They’re at every turn. This is starting to feel like a cheaply made spam app. That, and I feel like you’re punishing people for not watching ads when all they want to do is learn a language! You guys running out of money or something? This is sad, Duolingo was by-far the best app out there for casual learning, now I have to search for something else.

    I am a fluent Portuguese speaker since I was born and raised in Brazil and I can tell you this, Duolingo has many errors when it comes to the language. Wrong conjugation and so much more this needs to be fixed
  • Could be spectacular

    Update 2: Dropping my 4 star rating to 1 out of frustration. Instead of adding practical features the duo lingo team is incessantly focused on tweaking the core experience to where it never feels like you're getting ahead. The app was functionally fine years ago and they keep reinventing it with no improvement; the app has totally lost its direction and I'm sad for that. Update: Now even slower after the February update. Simply scrolling from the top of the tree to the bottom can take almost 30 seconds! (iPad 3). Sad. I hope development hasn't slowed on this, I haven't seen any new features in ages. The recent updates seem to be directed towards making more money; I think the idea of health that runs out is pretty crappy for an app like this. It's not right that a couple silly typos can ruin your lesson plan for the day. Even worse is when you know you're right, but the app says otherwise. After reporting their error, your "heart" is not restored. Overall there is a lot that aggravates me about the development path but I'm holding onto hope. I'd love to see support for favorite/flagged words and phrases or some kind of review system for revisiting questions after a lesson...even a back button would be awesome for helping to ingrain that one thing you're not sure you paid enough attention to. I'd also love better accessibility support and support for Bluetooth keyboards with shortcuts similar to the (spectacular) website. Yeah, kinda sad the app is still missing a ton of what the website has. Early on there was hints that lessons could be made available offline, at least in a rudimentary way. I'm sorry to see this never evolved, especially since that does kind of seem like an excellent reason to have an app in the first place. One last thing is that I wish they will support older devices as long as humanly possible, as my kids will be using this and support is already gone for the iPad 1 and barely hanging on for the iPad 2 and 3....the scrolling is quite slow and the app runs a little laggy on those devices.
  • I love this app!!!!❤️

    This is an absolutely fantastic app! I would definitely recommend getting it! If you are having troubles they are right there to support you! If you are looking to try to learn a new language Duolingo is a great option. Thank you Duolingo! 100% honest! 😀

    I really enjoy using Duolingo, but I just heard Harry Shearer read out a report that suggests the app violates expected user privacy with unsafe tracking behavior and sharing of user data. This bumps it down considerably for me. Fix yourselves!

    One question asks you to write with apostrophe on the s but it doesn't let you choose it in the options so you can't pass the class.
