On the whole a great free app that provides a valuable service!

I’ve been using Duolingo for about 4 years now so I’ve seen it undergo a lot of changes over the years. On the whole I think it’s a great app that is providing a valuable service for free. It’s great for dipping your toes in the water of a new language and making yourself familiar with a lot of vocabulary and grammatical structure. In order to gain higher levels of fluency, though, you do need to branch out into other forms of learning such as watching films in said language, etc.
I would make one complaint about the app. Although most of the changes over the years have been for the better, the process of the developers rolling out the changes can be pretty tedious. One day you will be able to double your gems by watching an ad, the next day you’re not given the choice to watch any ads. I think the experience could be improved by the developers being a bit more measured in how they role out changes. It would be better if as a user I was notified about any changes that were going to take place prior to them taking place, maybe being told that I’m in a test group so the changes may revert after a time and maybe even a reason why the change is being made. It’s nice to be kept in the loop.
Also the league system is great, but I wish you could somehow choose to get put into a group with people that are on your friends list.

Pro Membership is a total rip off!!!

I am a long term user of Duolingo and I do really enjoy the App - it's a great fun way to SUPPORT your language learning: just remember to take the "33% fluent" thing with a huge spoonful of salt! However, I have one MAJOR issue with it.

In order to get rid of the very annoying Ads I joined up for the Pro Membership at €7 (or so!) per month: pretty expensive but as I'm learning 3 languages - and I do actually USE the App! - I thought it would be worth it. However, as a previous reviewer has pointed out, in Duolingo you have 5 lives and each, even tiny, mistake or typo costs a life. When you lose the 5 lives you have to either use 500 accumulated "gems" to regain your lives and start playing (learning) again or you have to pay an ADDITIONAL amount (I think it's something like €5) to gain new "life" or wait 5 hours to gain just ONE life! To regain all 5 you are blocked for an ENTIRE DAY! - even despite your being a full "Pro" member!
So I've paid €60 per year and I can't use the App for at least 4 hours most days! It's an absolute rip off and they NEED to change this feature. Until they do, I would strongly advise you not to pay for the Pro feature. If I'm paying €60 per year for one language App I want to be able to USE it when I want to, 24/7 thank you!
