Needs to be used in conjunction with other tools.
NurseOlive85 on 2021-11-29
I would highly suggest using this app as an aid along with other forms of teaching tools (apps, books, online or in-person lessons, etc). My biggest issue is the lack of explanation with grammar. They show you sentences and I guess they just expect you to memorize it — for instance, with grammatical gender (which is completely foreign to English speakers). They also don’t start out with basic pronunciation of the alphabet, which I think is strange. It would be helpful to learn the alphabet and pronunciation of the letters along with a basic tutorial on lip and tongue position to help with that pronunciation. Another thing I found odd is that too often during the audio (when you can’t check your work) they’ll throw in a word they haven’t covered yet. Of course it’s hit or miss whether you’ll get it wrong. Hearts —or lives— are required to continue the lessons. You lose a heart for every incorrect answer, but only earn ONE heart every four hours. Oh, but guess what? Yep, you can PURCHASE hearts to continue learning. I might understand this if the lessons were ad-free, but they aren’t. I just don’t feel like this is conducive to learning, especially for those who spend more than half an hour per day on the app.
조금이상합니다

I like the gaming aspect, but it has some problems. First the test said my Korean was so poor that I needed to start with the alphabet. Then the way it teaches you the alphabet was so odd that I was making some mistakes, so I had to do an Internet search to figure out how to skip ahead. Now that I’m doing sentences it’s better, but why in the world would you teach people strange sentences like “I am a person who eats coats and gloves.” These kinds of phrases are next to useless in my opinion and so easy to do better. Also, there is a grammatical construction in Korean for “Let’s” like “Let’s go” 갑시다 or “Let’s eat” 먹읍시다 and this program isn’t using it when it’s giving “Let’s” sentences in English. - edit -> several months later I’m still frustrated with this app. I hear great things about the Spanish version but the Korean version has way too many mistakes. It will mark you wrong for using the “wrong” article in English (the versus a/an) when the sentences have no context. There is a place to choose “my answer should have been accepted” but people in the comments say they marked this months or even years ago and it still hasn’t been changed.
Amazing app!
smokey cat grey on 2021-11-29
Ok so I’ve been using this app for a while now and it’s great! It helped me learn really well, and I love the fact that you can pick any language you want and not just Spanish. Duolingo is a amazing app to help you learn any language and something I really like is it’s not like giant hard sentences and words from the beginning it will slowly get harder and harder the more you get on the duolingo app. I have a one suggestion though, it would be a great idea to make this app an offline app other than that your app is amazing it even asked you how good you are at *insert language here* like when you are signing in it will ask you if you know that language well or are you just a beginner, and i find that amazing beacause it’s very helpful in many ways it also keeps track of ur progress and when u buy duolingo premium it gets 10x better than it already is like for instants it will give you infinite hearts mistake recovery and a hole lot more. And I know that u might be thinking “oh doesn’t it send weight and scary messages to it’s users? No those are memes, ok that’s all I have to say bye!
Micro Transaction Trap
gglrg on 2021-11-29
This app is mired with micro transaction pitfalls, even if you pay for the year of Duo Lingo Plus. Gems are part of the gamification of this language app. Gems get you further in speed lessons or allow you to access additional sections of a language. Gems are now harder, if not impossible, to earn in the app. When you do earn gems it seems to cap how many you can earn a day. Eventually due to the lack of obtainable gems you are forced to purchase gems, even after paying for Plus, to take part in aspects of this app or to fix issues. One such issue is that even if you use the app daily it will randomly glitch, and you will lose your daily usage streak. How do you fix that? Why gems dear reader, it will cost you gems or real money to get that streak back. Save money, and buy the lifetime licence to Rosetta Stone or another language app. It’ll be a better value, and way less of an outright financial scam than Duo Lingo & Duo Lingo Plus.
What a cluster ****
Professor Underhill on 2021-11-29
It’s been years since I used the app, so I thought it would be simple to start over from the top, right? Wrong. There’s no way to reset the lessons within the app. I had to log on on my laptop in order to reset the lessons. Only problem is, it’s been years, I don’t remember my password. So I reset the password on my laptop, log in, and reset my Spanish lessons. I open my app, knowing of course that I would have to log back in. Only it won’t let me. It refuses to let me log in with my new password. I tried several times. I try deleting the app and redownloading it, still won’t let me log in. I try deleting the account from the log in screen and logging back in. Doesn’t work. I try deleting and redownloading the app again. No dice. So now I guess I can only access duolingo from my laptop, which means I just won’t be using duolingo. All of this could have been avoided if there was a simple way to reset the lessons inside the app.
Why haven’t you enabled family sharing yet
AliCB on 2021-11-29
It says that Duolingo supports Family Sharing and I have a paid subscription so why can’t I share it with my husband? According to your faq Can I share my Duolingo Plus subscription using Apple's Family Sharing? Unfortunately, Duolingo Plus can't be shared. That's the case for all In-App purchases according to Apple's policies. Apple allows sharing now, but Duolingo has yet to opt-in. So when will you enable family sharing? Also the audio in French is a joke. As a test I have been silent when I’m supposed to speak and it gave me good feedback and I have also spoken in a different language and it gave me good feedback. It frequently takes quite a while for lessons to load and the app frequently freezes. Instead of continually adding new features that often don’t work very well it would be nice if you made the app work as well as it used to.
If you get frustrated easily don’t try
nooneoartent on 2021-11-29
I hate this it’s frustrating and the stupid little no sound parts make me wanna throw my phone if you have it and get frustrated easily DELETE DELETE DELETE it’s for your own good this app shouldn’t exist and I’ll put money down the people who love this are bots just trying g to give this stupid good for nothing app a good look it’s so bad there’s a horror game because of its ridiculous reminders I was eating thanksgiving dinner and my phone kept beeping because of this dumb app reminding me about my 2 day streak like I don’t care and I have perfection issues where I have to make everything perfect so this doesn’t help and I don’t wanna spend 10 minutes of my day pushing buttons just to get the wrong answer all this app does is make you insane and hog up storage just don’t download it its not worth it
Room for improvement
bckpffngscht on 2021-11-29
This app is great if you already know the basics of your target language. For some languages, they do a pretty good job at providing explanations for the grammar points, but if your language isn’t one of those, then good luck figuring anything out. I’m learning Dutch right now, and because I have a background in German, I innately understand some of the rules. But certain ones, like adjectives, are incredibly poorly implemented. There’s no explanation at all about when to use certain declensions of adjectives. They also don’t provide a pronunciation guide, so I am stuck guessing if the way I’m saying it is correct or not (because let’s be honest, voice recognition is a bit bad).
Mixed feelings
Maddycakes42 on 2021-11-29
I have been studying Spanish for four years with Duolingo. I am grateful for a free software that has helped me a lot. However, the app does not explain grammar rules, it just expects you to pick up on them in context. It also is not consistent with how it wants you to answer certain things. These two things combined, make it UNBELIEVABLY frustrating to use once you get in to the more advanced levels. I fear that I will need to abandon this app because even my boyfriend, who is a very educated, fluent, native Spanish speaker is unable to anticipate what answers they want. The inconsistency is maddening.
Great app but
Branduibh on 2021-11-29
Overall the app is great. The microphone is a nightmare. When doing audio lessons it will lose track of which microphone it is using, which isn't a problem that happens in the regular lessons. So if you're using Bluetooth or plug-in earbuds it will switch randomly to the phone's microphone. Sometimes the microphone fails to respond at all. In timed challenges sometimes the voice processing is so slow to respond you fail while waiting for it to figure out what you said. Also, some languages have way better lessons than others. I'd stick with the popular ones.
