  • Very intuitive and useful

    By Jello5517
    This is a perfect setting for travelers. There is enough material to get over the inertia hurdle. Duolingo provides a great platform to learn how to fundamentally converse while traveling through. It is also a nice brush up / supplement for already known languages.
  • ¡Muy Beno!

    By JaniceThwaits2243
    This app has really improved my Spanish. I had a 42 in Spanish but now I have a 43 aiming for that 44! Yo es muy contenta por Duolingo. Es muy caliyente. I will now be able to soothe Latina women with my diverse tongue. Grasias Duolongo!
  • Sentence validations are broken

    By j8chuenka
    First of all, I love the app. I picked to learn Spanish. When the practice to listen the sentence and type the translation in English, I wrote down the exact sentence matching the answer and it keeps telling me it is incorrect. Then, it keeps repeating into infinite loop of the same practice until I runout of heart. Please fix that. Speech recognition for translation practices also have the same problems. Sometimes it passes with my correct answers and sometimes it doesn’t. Thank you so much though for making this app. I learn a lot.
  • Duolingo is 💣

    By Ambermccoy
    It’s the only free language service I’ve found. I’m loving learning Italian on here and if I can ever afford it, I have the option to pay for it to stop ads and keep learning in the same system that I’ve grown to love. There’s so much variety in how they test your knowledge. You really have to pay attention and I personally take notes like it’s a class because they won’t let you put the wrong word even when it’s the right word in the wrong tense. I appreciate the accuracy and I think the whole set up is great. The only thing it’s lacking is a background on why the words are the way they are. It would be easier(and I don’t know how they would integrate this) if they told us- oh, verbs have six forms. I drink: Io bevo. You drink: Tu bevi. He/She drinks: Lui/Lei beve. They drink: Loro bevono. We drink: Noi beviamo. You all drink: Voi bevete. There’s no one to tell you, and you have to notice these patterns and remember them. Good news is, they’re linear and that structure works for a lot of them. I eat/drink/read/write: Io mangio/bevo/leggo/scrivo. And so on: We eat/drink/read/write: Noi mangiamo/beviamo/leggiamo/scriviamo. So it’s great that I notice these patterns, but maybe there are a few who don’t catch on and get frustrated and quit. Maybe a little more explanation could be added in. And then even though I can figure it out, I won’t have to on my own and others will have a clearer path. All together though, I love this app and I appreciate it so much.
  • Could be better

    By WAS in LaLaLand
    Every time I do a test, the app says my answer is incorrect. Although my answer is exactly the same as what the app says is the correct answer. Reporting a problem does nothing, because there isn't an option for "my answer was correct". I'm losing patience with this app. Will delete it if the issue is not fixed soon.
  • App fails to properly track usage

    By adancingnancie
    Every time I wager gems (and double to meet a streak) the app tells me I have lost my streak when in fact, I have not. THEN it asks if I want to pay to restore the streak. I am owed approximately 500 gems and there is no where in the app to report a problem or get technical support.
  • Pretty great, but room for improvements

    By Tommy Boy 1234567899
    So I’m not usually one to care enough to leave a review on an app, but I’ve had Duolingo for awhile now and it’s pretty great. Tbh the main thing that caused me to come leave a review is now they added it to where (at least on the iPhone) I have a Duolingo Owl bitmoji with reactions and as long as they keep pumping out content like that I’m here for it. The main con being I wish it would actually explain the grammar of a word and how it’s used, instead of the short preview snippet it gives you. Also, I wish it gave you more context as well. Sometimes I end up hearing the right words but second guess myself because the sentence seems super random and out of place.
  • Filled with ads and IAP

    By fuzzball6447740997
    What a fall this app has had. Ads everywhere, and it literally stops you from practicing after like 10 minutes unless you pay to restore your “health”.
  • Poorly designed cirriculum

    By Fnsishtkdksbl
    The first lesson was “the boy is eating an apple” instead of “hello.” That says it all really.
  • Really like this app!

    By ASchnauzer
    It keeps me working on language and changes up so it’s more fun.
