App defects stop progression
wheresmypalmpilot on 2023-01-30
In some of the multi-choice questions translating German to English, “n’t” will appear as a choice. It’s meant to be “aren’t”, or “doesn’t”. There are no other choices but the “n’t” mistake to answer the question. The app will mark the answer wrong. Only one incorrect answer is needed to not be given credit for the session, which prevents advancing to the next session. This single small mistake by the app code writers effectively shuts the app down as the only option is to repeatedly redo the same session only to have to exit without completing because the app won’t let you complete a session with one error. This code writing mistake has been repeated over and over again. It takes months and months for them to fix the app, only to have the same code writing error come up again, halting your progress again. Reporting the mistake does nothing. Contacting support does nothing. It’s too bad because for me this app suits me the best compared to Babble etc. I use the payed version of Duolingo but this repeated error in the app makes it an unreliable waste of time. I don’t know if learning German from English is the only version this error appears. I don’t imagine Duolingo will be around too much longer if this error exists for multiple languages. I’m going back to Babble because that app is more reliable allowing you to steadily progress.
7 years of getting worse
davibd on 2023-01-30
I've been using Duolingo for about 7 years now. Every year they feel the need to revamp everything, which confuses people, deletes previous achievements that we worked hard to unlock, and makes more things premium. They even deleted the community forums and made a competitive (stressful) leaderboard instead. I quit last year because the app frustrated me... now I download it again to see how it is... all my legendary levels (which I paid 100 gems per lesson!) have reverted to gold or lower. Did they forget to reimburse the 15000 total gems I paid for that?? And now they ask 100 gems AGAIN to re-unlock legendary lessons. What the hell!! I wonder how they can still have a 4.6/5 rating in 2023, when everyone I know (in real life) who used the app tells me it feels low quality and they only learned when they took real classes. Personally, I was satisfied with reaching an equivalent of level A1... but the hearts system along with ads make it too time-consuming. Earning back each heart requires a 5 min practice of things you don't necessarily need to practice. Anyway, seeing how they deleted my progress, I don't feel motivated to retry this app. I don't think it will ever get back to its glory days.
I dont like the changes
bradmmmmmmmm on 2023-01-30
I have moved on to Bussuu and have achieved the level of high Intermediate. When I go back to Duolingo to skip ahead because the lessons are way under my level, when I test out (you can only get 5 wrong) the IA is so specific and marks you wrong on silly things that have nothing to do with the concept its trying to test. Therefor it holds you back. I have grown bored of this. I have tried testing out 3 times now . It wasted 20 minutes of my life each time to fail the module over silly mistakes . I wont be wasting another 20 minutes. Sorry to say Duolingo has jumped the shark. There are better options. They could get their mojo back if they fixed this as the app is engaging and addictive (in a good way) when your progressing. Its a waste of time when have to complete lessons that are way too easy just to move to the next level. Most of the problem is the lessons you need to write in. Maybe for this kind of app writing is not it strength (its too specific) and the AI creates sentences with very little context sometimes. Even my family member (native spanish speaker) got it wrong
Question
PuppydogsRULE! on 2023-01-30
Hey Duolingo creators! You most definitely ain't gonna see this review, and even if you do, you most likely won't respond, but I will write this anyway. I love this app, and it has helped me learn French so quickly! I was on a high streak, tryna make it to 365 days, and every morning I would try my best to do it. Well, I was very busy one week and hadn't realized I had run out of streak freezes, and I went to do my learning later (like LATER later) and, obviously, the app decided not to work. Of course, I knew I had.. like... a TRILLION streak freezes, so I let it rest for the night. Fast forward to 7:00am the next day, went to do my lesson, at the top of the screen I read 0 DAYS. I swear to god. I cried. So, I have a question- I think if your streak is past 50 or 75 days you should get a chance to regain your streak, buy either a few ads or a hard review of what you've learned so far. Please take it into consideration, and if you can, give me back my 127 day streak. Please.
Good app, misleading promotions
Dhavalio on 2023-01-30
The app is great. I love the gamification aspect of learning so this really fits with how I am motivated and drives me to complete lessons and challenges often. I purchased the super duo license for a year and love it. Then I saw that they had a family plan and I wanted to share the app with my family. It said only $4.50 more per month instead of the actual price so I figured that it would be on top of what I had already purchased, but instead, they charged me the full amount so now I’m paying both for an individual license and a family plan. The application company has not yet responded to my support request so I doubt I’m getting that delta cost back. I want to recommend this app to my peers but I need to tell them to avoid paying for it because they seem to just take your money and don’t correct issues when they occur.
Works well for certain aspects of language learning
ctkenye on 2023-01-30
Duolingo is great for the necessary but boring repetitions that most people require to have a language stick in their heads, because it skillfully applies the addictive qualities of simple games plus frequent rewards. That said, it doesn’t get five stars, because the “new words learned” function obviously doesn’t work, which means that you never earn even the first reward for that, but most importantly, it that function doesn’t incorporate introduced words in a logical way. I also have found occasional glitches in the responses and there is no way to flag errors, either on the fly or anywhere else. Lastly, it’s not possible to pick out a problematic pronunciation and focus on strictly that until one gets it ‘right’… eventually the app just moves on and never presents that word again (or at least not so far…)
Disappointing since they ask to pay extra even tho you buy the free version
Cigam Tegdim on 2023-01-30
I bought the plus version but now they require me to pay extra for certain things. That’s really disappointing and I will cancel my subscription before it automatically extends next month. By now there are so many more ways to learn A language better cheaper. Duolingo really lost on quality and just became an app to make money. They started off good and I was happy to pay for their learning content but it’s frustrating to have to pay extra for stuff. I wouldn’t recommend it anymore and I’m sure this app won’t have a future like this. Check out Udemy courses or babble. It’s the better value in my opinion.
Where are Estelle and Paul
plmqaxyhb on 2023-01-30
I’m upset that the Estelle and Paul French audio learning sessions are no longer available, nor the podcast-type stories. They were perfect while I walked to and from work every day. I could continue my learning on my iPhone without having to be looking at or touching my phone. I’ve found my pace of learning French has slowed down dramatically since they were removed. It was a wonderful way to help my pronunciation and my understanding spoken French since I don’t live in an area where there is any French spoken. I hope that there soon will be a replacement series or they’ll be back on soon.
Used to love this app
JMUsagi on 2023-01-30
I used to love this app until the recent big update. I had a 120+ day streak but recently let it break and uninstalled Duolingo because the new update made the app boring. The lack of ability to choose what topic you want to focus on is demotivating. For example, if I want to practice a certain topic or even see what stories I haven't done yet, I have to scroll all the way through the ridiculously long path to try and find what I'm looking for. Plus, the icons on the path are very vague at times. Duolingo, PLEASE listen to your users.
Great App, Horrible Support
Mr Cheerios on 2023-01-30
I love the app, but my paid account was mistakenly setup as a child account which prevents me from using any of the social features. I’ve contacted support so many times, and they even responded to me saying they see the problem, but they can’t seem to be bothered to make the simple change to correct my age and enable all the features I’ve paid for. Support, if you read this please correct this issue so I can rate your product how it deserves to be rated based on the quality of the app itself.
