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

Love this app

Hi, i love learning languages and duolingo is the best app for it.. Its simple and the design is just amazing.. I have some tips here that I would appreciate; 1- It would be good to save your favorite phrases from the course and check them out somewhere (something u want to remember or just save) 2- I have one problem- it is, that u can delete a course (settings-manage courses) just when u learn it from english (in my case from czech), but when i added another course (the same one like i had in czech) but from german, i cant delete it. I mean ive learned czech-english and then i added german-english and the german-english course i cant delete.. its not so big problem i just have a lot of courses like that there what i cant delete
Thank you for making this app its amazing and ive learned so much there👏🏻😊 I hope that this app will be here with us forever, and that it will increase interest in language learning among young people✨ Heartful greetings and big Thanks👏🏻
