    Guten Tag By that, you should know I’m learning German through this app, which helped immensely when I went to Germany and Austria (a German speaking country). However, in the app, there is the health bar that you lose a bar every time you get a question wrong. Why would you have that when mistakes are part of learning? I do use Duolingo a lot when I’m on my computer, and it doesn’t have the bars of health, and it’s wonderful. I always learn more when I’m on my laptop doing it, rather than on my phone or tablet. Overall, I love Duolingo. I’ve been in French class for almost 4 years at school, and I know more German from Duolingo than I do French from school. But the health thing needs to be gotten rid of.

    Like the lessons except when new words are introduced and you are asked to type them but have never seen them before! Also, please make the print darker for visually impaired. I have glaucoma and find it very hard to see the light green and gray letters. And yes, I have my iPad adjusted for bold text and do invert colors but would greatly appreciate darker text!

    This is a nice app, but the whole heart thing just doesn’t work. It messes up the whole point of the learning. So, if you could try to do something with that, it would be great. Also, whenever I’m not on the app, the whole timer for lives resets.

    I am sick and tired of your incorrect Spanish. To say you are doing something, you use a conjugated form of estar + the verb with -ando/-iendo. Duolingo says “he eats” and “he is eating” means the same. This is not true. Also, there should be a way to get to level five without going through each lesson individuallyif you already know it.
  • Great way to learn

    This app brings fun to learning the languages we speak today. It includes a variety of different challenges, while making it fun and enjoyable. I truly believe Duolingo deserves five stars for helping us, young and old, learn new languages and communicate in new ways.
  • Great app, Health isn’t great

    I study using Duolingo almost every day. When I don’t use it it’s usually because I get out of the habit due to the Health “feature.” It’s a good idea that was implemented in a seemingly mean way and it needs to be tweaked. Several things could help make the app better. Higher contrast fonts: The fonts are low contrast and are somewhat small, making it hard to read unless your eyes are fresh and lighting conditions are perfect. This makes it hard to avoid typos. Typos are frustrating because Duolingo’s Health feature. Faster Health regeneration: Health takes a long time to regenerate. Sometimes you lose health for wrong answers that are actually correct, or for minor typos, or bad autocorrect errors. Duolingo used to be kinder with typos. Contextual Practice: You have to “practice “ to regain health. The practice questions are irrelevant to the current lesson and are probably taken from the easiest lessons. Thus they’re a waste of time if you’ve advanced very far into the lessons. I frequently go to Tinycards to practice something useful instead of wasting time on phrases I learned as a child. Idioms: I rack up a lot of errors because new idioms are presented without explanation. That means I can’t practice for a day because of the Health feature and because I don’t know the idiom. Every time Duolingo presents a new idiom I usually get it wrong and thus lose Health.
