    I’m still a newbie but am loving my daily Spanish and Russian lessons! Any chance of adding Latin as an option? I’d love to learn Latin!
  • Why are there lives

    You should have lives and you should let everyone have unlimited so we can learn even more. I think it’s very stupid to have lives cause I need to learn French for homework and I always run out of lives. I really suggest you get rid of the lives thanks
  • Good app for practicing vocabulary

    This app is a great and fun way to practice your vocabulary for a given language. Combine this regularly with real communication practice (which is best done with classes or groups) and you will strengthen your comprehension of a foreign language!
  • App is OK

    Duolingo is teaching me 3 languages at once and it’s so engaging and somehow fun that you want to keep going. It even has a placement test if you already know some things about a language, so you don’t have to go through the boring process of reteaching a part of a language. I love it highly recommend.👍🏾👍🏾
  • Almost perfect

    This is really an amazing app and I strongly suggest everyone use it but the new update isn’t good. It’s new and it works but I just like the old duolingo better. I don’t like the new “health” concept but otherwise a very good app.

    As a former Instructional Designer, I realize that learners need constant, and relevant practice exercises to learn any new skill. I have noticed that the practice portions of each lesson comprise the majority of the lesson. I always spent the majority of my development time on exercises and quizzes because I believe the mind must be challenged in order to retain new information. I really like the tips section of each new subject. It gives the student the technical information they need before they start practicing. There is also an element of competition and that helps motivate the student in a fun way (similar to online games). It is wonderful to know that anyone (including those of limited means) can learn a new language thanks to you. Keep up the good work!
  • Better practices please

    Everything about the program is great, the languages and learning process even how they put the ads in the free version so they’re not crazy obnoxious or in your face with ads but it’s reasonable. I just wish there were more obtains on the app to practice like on the site. The site you can practice reading and vocabulary that you haven’t refreshed for a while and more. I also with there was a way for me to practice translating vs understand because I’m actually advanced on listening but not speaking/translating. So it would be great to add a practice feature for that specifically.
  • Amazing!!

    I was skeptical of Duolingo when I downloaded it. How could something so useful be free? Especially when the Rosetta Stone app is about $100/year after a short trial. I kept waiting to find the fine print, but it never happened. You can upgrade, of course, but it’s completely unnecessary to learn a language. There are basically no restrictions on how much you can study in a day or how many languages you can learn. It’s easy, fun, and comprehensive. The lessons build vocabulary, grammar, and confidence. I previously purchased a Rosetta Stone computer series which has its advantages, but I actually prefer Duolingo. You can study anywhere, and the direct translations make it easier for me to connect with the material, especially for more elusive concepts such as “sometimes.”
