Editors' Notes

With its friendly approach and awesome updates, Duolingo’s long been one of our favourite apps for learning another language. Its secret: making the process genuinely fun. Engaging mini-games test your reading, writing and speaking skills, and joining a club (where you can encourage and compete with others) adds a great social element. Bonus: all those languages and games are available for free!

Loved it!

This is a great Learning app, however this is not the best and definitely not the worst learning program, this app helped me learned the basics and taught quite effectively, however I do not recommend for East Asian languages such as Chinese, Japanese and Korean, the people keep complaining about the health bar system and the crown system, I don't want to start a debate over this, but I'm just saying to people "get over it" Duolingo will never get rid of the health system or change crowns back to fluency meter, the health meter, encourages people to review over weaker words, which is good, and you can get a computer/laptop/PC if you don't like the health system, that's just too bad not being able to afford a decent PC, the fluency meter wasn't 100% accurate and I agree crowns were better, I have just finished Duolingo's French course and I am now able to understand daily life and most things in French, I will confirm this was well worth my time, after almost 5 months of using Duolingo, the app was like a game, it was fun and I was actually motivated to learn,with this program than with textbooks, it was free also as an added benefit,I liked how the owl showed up when I got 5 and 10 in a row, and I received a trophy, and I'm not complaining about anything, keep it up duo, and I am hoping to see more languages being finished in the future

Inconsistent Features, But Overall Amazing

As a free language learning service Duolingo is incredible. Over the past 6-7 months I have been learning German using primarily Duolingo, alongside other learning resources. However, most of this period has been on the desktop web version of Duolingo. When using the mobile app for Duolingo, I have frequently noticed inconsistencies with in-app features, across multiple devices and reinstalls. I use an iPhone 6S, and my mother uses an iPhone XR, and somehow this device difference means she has access to a practice skills lesson and I don’t? Also, my usetime for the app is restricted by health, whereas many other people I know are not restricted by a health bar. Recently, my app somehow started not having a health bar, but when I had to delete it and I reinstalled it, I suddenly have to deal with making < 5 mistakes while learning again. Another thing I have noticed, is a lack of extra information for each lesson. On desktop, I can right click the lesson and have access to a deeper written run through of the lesson, however on mobile, I have access to this extra information on less than half my lessons. Particularly, I am unable to view this on newer lessons I’m learning, and thus do not have extra context and information for new concepts. For what it is overall, Duolingo is an amazing app, especially when you consider its entirely free. However, this inconsistency is enough for me to rate it as 4 stars instead of 5.
