Editors' Notes

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!

Absolutely Amazing, but I personally have some problems

This app is the best free language learning app, period. It’s easy to pickup, use and you actually learn a lot if you regularly practice. I have been using this app for a few months now for learning French and I have to say, from knowing nothing about French, I can now actually speak and understand very basic French(at least a little bit). This app is a powerful learning device and I’m sure you can learn the basics of a language if you regularly practice everyday(or every few days). It also has a vibrant community of over 100 million learners and the Club system, which not so robust, still lets you learn new words and makes learning fun(also the Duolingo memes are funny too). But personally speaking I have a huge problem, if I use the app for a few minutes, the speaker of my IPhone 6 stops working and the sound doesn’t some out from the speaker. It just gives a subtle buzzing sound and I have to restart my phone to fix this. This literally makes learning impossible and my speaker breaks each time. This is the only reason that makes me rate this app 3 stars. I think this is just a problem with my phone so I’m sure it’ll be fine with others.

Great language learning application

I have been learning a language on Duolingo for over 60 days now and I say I am pretty satisfied. On repeatedly seeing the advertisement to upgrade to plus by first testing it for 7 days, I clicked okay. 4 days later, I unsubscribed to Plus through the list of subscriptions menu in my iPhone. You can check the records and confirm when I unsubscribed. I really felt bad when today, I received a message from my bank that an amount of ₹769 was debited from my account. I tried to raise a ticket to Apple and without taking the request, they displayed a message that said they ‘determined’ that I do not qualify for a refund (not even hearing my case).

Now Duolingo, what star rating should I give you? For the app, I give you 5 Stars without a doubt. But for the disappointment, a 2-Star rating.
