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!

The best language - learning app out there!

I really wanted to learn a language, so I started looking for language - learning apps on the App Store. However, nearly all the apps’s lessons cost money. I was about to find another alternative until I stumbled across Duolingo - the FREE language - learning app. I have been using Duolingo for around 3 days now and my French vocabulary is really starting to develop. It’s lessons are effective and fun at the same time and if you don’t have much time, this is definitely the app for you as it’s lessons are around 5- 10 minutes long ( depending on how fast you complete them). I occasionally use the web app as well and it’s as good, if not better than the mobile app. The mobile app is still phenomenal, however. I also love the way that you can compete with other language - learners and see who can get to the top of the leaderboard within a 7 day period. You can also do another few things like practice on what you’ve learned and read short stories - just to name a few. I would definitely, definitely, DEFINITELY recommend Duolingo - The FREE language - learning app. Au Revoir!

Great app held back by bugs.

I’ve been using and enjoying Duolingo for about 2 months now to learn Japanese in my downtime, and while it’s done in a fun and effective manor the app itself has its share of bugs.
In particular I’ve had two recurring bugs. Most importantly, the text-to-speech audio cuts out very frequently and doesn’t come back until I close and reopen the app, only to repeat the problem soon after. Not sure what causes this but it seems to be after ads are played.
And while on the topic of ads, recently the system where you watch an ad to open a chest has been bugged.
Clicking the chest brings you to a random ad, but if the ad is not a video advertisement you will not get the gems because it requires you to watch the full ad. Though I’m sure the developer still reaps that sweet, sweet ad revenue, right? Not in their best interest to fix, but one can hope.
