    I’ve been using Duolingo to learn Esperanto for about a year and a half and it’s a bit buggy. I understand that Esperanto is an obscure language so maybe developers aren’t as interested in maintaining the course as say - Spanish or Japanese. I don’t have some of the necessary symbols (like the downwards carrot above the ‘s’ for example) on my phone keyboard, so sometimes I’ll have to copy/paste the letter from my notes app. That’s annoying. There’s a lot of discrepancies between the app and the desktop version. At one point, the desktop version Duo offered bonus courses (flirting and culture) that you have to pay for with your lingots or gems or crystal dragon balls or whatever the name of the duo-currency is this week. I bought both courses - flirting worked, culture did not work, neither of them showed up on the app. However just recently when I ‘practice’ Esperanto on the app, I’ll occasionally get strange words that I’ve never learned, and then at the end of the lesson, it says “You’ve improved your skill in (null)!” Word for word. I’m like “null”? Is that what you think of my practice, Duolingo?! Like it’s NOTHING?! HUH? ...Also what happened to the owl’s outfits? I liked those.

    This app WAS amazing. Now not so much... The new update glitches every single time I try to get on, therefore I can't use it. I don't know if this is just me, but if it's not I need it to be fixed. This is normally amazing and great for learning and was until I updated. So if you want to learn a language this is great, unlike the update. I love this and want to be able to practice my French, but I can't right now. This would be five stars if it was working but it's not so its three stars. Thank you for reading and Duolingo please fix this bug!
  • It’s okay I guess

    I mean I’ve only probably learned only about 5 sentences in German and I’ve already gone through 7 courses! Also what I have found really annoying is the fact that it has started my progress over THREE times already and I’m a little upset. Although I would say that this app is pretty good for beginners like I was when I first started. Also a lot of the time the person that is reading the sentences to you doesn’t pronounce the word right, then you often get the problem wrong and very rarely do you get is right. As well as you lose ONE FIFTH of your lives EVERY time you get something wrong. But all in all I think that they could SERIOUSLY improve this app in the very near future and hopefully my input helps it become a great foreign language app!!!

    I love this app and have been refreshing my French and Spanish. However, as a diplomat, we learn how to read and speak languages, not how to write them, so Duolingo’s insistence on correct spelling trips me up unnecessarily—since spelling isn’t a priority. Also, now that I’m living in Ghana, a country with 11 official language, I wish I could learn Twi through Duolingo. Anyway it’s a fun and useful app. I like doing the text conversations with the bots on various subjects. I highly recommend it.

    Duolingo is a really good app but it has a few problems. It has this weird thing about "healthcare" or something like that. But anyway if you run out of it then you can continue the lesson which is really just dumb cause it prevents you from learning the language. So it's good but...😬😐😬

    The app itself works quite nice and I found it to be very useful. The one problem is if I run out of Health it does not reload fast enough and I tend to forget about using the app. I wish there was a price I could just pay to be able to use the app but this is set up to get continuous huge payments over time but it's just not worth. If I could pay a reasonable price to avoid the limitations of moving forward because of the health I would rate this higher.
  • Awesome learning app!

    I just love this app! I’m so happy to learn also about the new Chinese course and laughed so hard at how it was written in the update notes! (OMG so funny guys!!!) :)
  • Great idea but needs to improve

    Is helpful to learn Spanish- the approach of repetition - teaching you the word in Spanish then having you write it helps you remember it BUT I’ve typed translations in EXACTLY as the correct answer and it still says it wrong, which uses my “health points” and stops me from continuing. About ready to delete it all together
