Fix the bug!

I am very happy with this app. It has been a great tool for my soon to be kindergartener. However I think that the most recent update has an error: we are in a constant loop on one level so he keeps doing the same lessons over & over. It’s been a week with no new content. I thought it was happening because he wasn’t getting a ‘perfect score’ so I went in and did it for him. I got it to level 11. And sure enough this afternoon it was back to the tiny turtles. He’s over it and so am I.

My only other general suggestion is that the app have a place for parents to get a comprehensive overview of the skills that have been introduced and where the child is in terms of mastery.

It is a wonderful app and I truly appreciate that it is free and ad-free! Keep up the great work!!

I’m amazed!

I have a 4 year old whom we are getting checked for ADHD and I’ve tried so many different apps (including paying for ABC Mouse)and physical in person learning kits. Nothing keeps his interest for more then a few minutes before he wants to do his own thing and stops retaining any of the information in front of him. He gets overstimulated so easily and it has been a frustration and constant struggle to try and find anything that works for him. We tried this app and he sat still going through the levels which are so quick paced and full of repetition in a non boring way! He went through 25 levels in one sitting and I’ve never seen him more proud of himself in the entirety of trying to teach him to read. There was no frustration at all for him. We stopped after 30 minutes because he finally started getting overstimulated not retaining anymore but I cried with how much he took in and then he went through the house after he stopped playing trying to figure out what letter things in the house started with. I can not praise this app enough, try it for yourself. I hope so much you can get similar results to what we received.

Best early learning app!!!

I have homeschooled all 4 of our kids. (Oldest 16 youngest 7) we use DUOLINGO for teaching our two older boys Spanish. (We tried Rosetta Stone which was an absolute waste of money!) Duo Lingo is engaging and does an excellent job teaching to speak, read and write in Spanish. I saw the add for Duo abc and instantly thought of our 7 year old son who has Down Syndrome. His disability has made it a challenge to get him interested in learning. I have tried many different programs and apps, this is by far THE BEST app we have ever found!! I absolutely love it!!! The first time we opened he loved it!! It keeps his attention, and he’s finally learning his letters and sounds! The first time it asked him to say a word, I was nervous. He sees a speech therapist for his language. There are many times I (his mom) can’t even understand him. So when he repeated the word and it chimed because he got it right, I teared up a bit! I was ecstatic!! I can’t tell you how excited I am!! I have been telling all my homeschool friends!! Thank you Duo abc!!!! I am so grateful!!!
