  • wonderful app

    I learned words in a snap, must endorsed app+1 rep!
  • Amazing, but needs something

    By NotDannySexbangButIWish
    I love this app to death. I've been learning Spanish, and I've been doing pretty well. However, some of the problems I have with the app are: First, it rarely ever has me learn new words by themselves anymore, I have to guess what words mean when I see ones that I don't know. Secondly, it doesn't teach grammatical rules or why certain words are they way they are in the context of the sentence they are in. It's possible to figure it out by the sheer amount of work that the user puts into learning, but it is still very difficult and I would rather be told than to figure out a grammar rule that ends up being incorrect. Lastly I wish they taught more informal speaking, but that's more of a personal choice. I'm sure I could find it out by googling, but I would rather it all be on the app.
  • Great App

    This app is a great resource for anyone starting to learn a new language. The only thing I don't like is the structure of the Japanese lessons. It starts off good by slowly teaching you the Japanese characters along with a few words, but then advances too quickly. If I compare it to the French, German, and Spanish lessons, then it is not as good. I do like that you can write your own messages in the clubs. It makes sense to be able to truly communicate with others.
  • Great but frustrating

    By ZachVanM
    Please get rid of the five “lives”! It is very frustrating to try and learn the language but only be allowed five mistakes before I can’t continue the lesson. Otherwise this is a five star app.
  • Should Have the Alphabet of Language Being taught

    4
    By Ghjdvfn
    It’s a good learning app but I think Duolingo should teach the alphabet of the language your learning first so you have a understanding of how the word formed.
  • Really Well, Minor Problems

    5
    By 1-800-random app reviewer
    I wish I could give this app 4 1/2 stars only because sometimes you put in the correct phrase and it will come back as wrong, even though I put the same thing in. Anyways, great app for learning a new language. Free of charge! That is if you don’t mind ads.
  • Chinese could use one big improvement

    3
    By Chris Pt
    Everything about this is best mobile Chinese learning app ever. But its potential efficiency is probably 50-66% right now because if someone already knows how to hear / read pinyin, so many of the exercises can be solved on that alone. I.e. no character or meaning recognition is necessary, just matching pinyin to sound, which is nothing.
  • Excellent free app!

    By Ellen little
    I’ve been using Duolingo for 5 days now, and it is excellent! The only problem is that when I’m answering verbally, it doesn’t always understand me. That might be my phone’s fault though. Or maybe I’m mispronouncing everything! I doubt that is the case. I love all of the language options.
  • Lost in translation

    3
    By Ramona?
    I was really interested in learning Spanish. Based on the reviews I decided to give this app a try. It’s very disheartening to type the same answer the same exact way as the results only to be told that your answer is incorrect. I have sent feedback but the situation remains the same. I feel that 3 stars is more than generous based on the simplicity of the app but the app not given the correct response to saddening, and oh yea it takes your heart beats away.
  • Beware uncapped pay wall in place!

    1
    By VintaminTee
    A great app that is otherwise completely ruined requiring you to pay for making mistakes when learning the language. After I paid to remove the ads and support what I though was a high quality app, I quickly found out that I would have to buy more “lives” after making too many mistakes. This is an appalling practice that is all over the App Store, for silly games I get it, but for educational software to financially penalize someone for making mistakes with no cap is absolutely disgusting. I recommend supporting a competitor with up front *fixed* pricing!
