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!

Good for a foundation level knowledge

Personally I went the extra mile since I am dedicated to learn Swedish, and I bought a year's worth of Super Duolingo. With this, it's much more appealing to learn consistently, every day. It teaches you some useful phrases that you can use to get around town in a foreign country, and on the longrun I believe it can help with much more complex things as well, however at the time of writing this I am still relatively in the beginning of the Swedish course. It helps you get a foundation level understanding that you can start using when reading texts in the language you're learning, and from there on exploring other forms of getting used to the language, such as videos or chatting with online friends who are native speakers.

Nice app, but beware of total waste of time

This is a very nice app/game. It will help you have a glimpse of a foreign language. And if you spend enough time (years?) even read/understand a foreign language. Make no mistake though - the focus of this app is so that you *do not* learn a foreign language to the level you will start perfecting it while speaking with foreigners. It’s focus is to keep you see ads for as long of possible. This is not a technical limitation but rather a design choice and business model. (The percent of native language to target language question is ridiculously low (max 10%) and all requests to do something about it were deflected by the team for various reasons)

Start using it, then make a calculation for yourself and see how much it will take you to complete a course. Note how bad you remain at writing/formulating sentences in the target language and decide if that time is worth wasting. Compare it to the value you would get from attending language courses, or possibly other apps focused on teaching you a language efficiently even if that means letting you go at the end.

It’s nice as a way to kill time though, like a mobile game, but more useful.
