Editors’ Choice

With its friendly approach and awesome updates, Duolingo’s long been one of our favorite 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!

Duolingo is great!

I love the languages! I am multi linguist and I dare to say I have never seen better app for improving the language skills and to start to study the new languages. I am very satisfied with the many world or European languages. English is perfect, German is great, Russian espectacular, Polish fabulous, Dutch unbelievable, Danish super (I admire the pronouncing). I admire the pronunciation especially in Irish, Norwegian (Bokmål), just I miss Nynorsk from the second kind of Norwegian and I miss especially Icelandic (which is similar) that the best would be in combination with English. The nice Irish is the only official Celtic language. The French, Italian, Romanian, Latin (in more voices), Portuguese and especially Spanish I find very great and well done. The unique Greek is also very good created. From Asian languages I like Japanese and I admire especially Chinese. I like the double combinations, E.G. Portuguese-French, Italian-French, French-Italian, Spanish-French, English-French, English-Chinese, Czech-English, English-Irish, German-Dutch, Spanish-Swedish, English-Finish, Spanish-Russian, Polish-English, Spanish-Portuguese, English-Romanian, English-Danish, English-Guaraní etc. The Guaraní si the only official Indigenous language. The most interesting and easy to study from the Finno-Ugrian languages I see the Finnish. I find here especially useful Irish and Portuguese because the pronouncement is quite difficult. Duolingo is wonderful! Greetings. Vašek

annmariiiiii ,

good but has a few minuses

This app is super fun, i love doing the courses. Sometimes i feel like duo wants me to learn words too fast, but when you dont have money for Super, you can just simply run out of hearts and gain them back by practicing. This is such a great idea and i love it!! Also, i have a little problem. 3 days ago i got '2 days of Super' from a chest i opened and yesterday it was supposed to end. I wasn't on wifi so i thought maybe i read it wrong and today was the end? I did a quick review which you can do on Super offline, and after the course it showed me that my day streak increased and i didn't open duo that day. Today i opened duo and it said that i used a freezer yesterday! I mean, i didn't loose my streak and it's just a few days, but imagine somebody with a streak over a year losing it because of this! You should notify us even if we are offline, or write it somewhere when you give us the Super in the start.
Other than this, i don't see any problem, and i'm really happy with this app! 💗
