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!

This app is so bueno!

I have been using Duolingo for a while now, and recently got into it again after forgetting to practice for a while. I love being able to have a little widget on my home and lock screens to remind me to practice. I can’t remember exactly how long my best streak was, but it was pretty high. I’m currently at an 8 day streak, and I’m excited to finish my course. It’s going to be fun to talk to my friends and then just randomly start speaking Spanish to confuse them. I’m having so much fun, and for a while now, I’ll sometimes say “buenas noches” instead of good night. And I loved going up to my 6th grade teachers and just saying, “Hola. ¿Cómo estás?” And seeing how they responded. Some would reply with “muy bien” and others would say they didn’t understand. Most of the time the conversation would morph into them just having to translate certain parts, as I’m not a fluent or professional Spanish speaker, but it was still fun nonetheless. I love the app, but an idea that I would have is an easy-to-find tutorial for harder aspects of the language you’re learning, because I still to this day can’t roll my Rs whatsoever. Overall it’s a great way for someone like me who has been diagnosed with ADHD and Autism, as well as anyone else who wants to learn a new language. Thanks for reading, hopefully this gave you some good information on my experience with Duolingo, and, of course, adios amigo y amiga!

I’ve tried to learn multiple languages (I’m very indecisive) over the past few years since I have been using Duolingo. It’s always been very helpful to do what it is designed for, I just have a few issues with the program and a few recent changes. First off, the super duolingo ads have always been annoying, but I have always been able to close them, and they have only been one ad usually at the end of every lesson. The problem I have with them now is that after watching an ad for something else, it will then bring me to a super Duolingo ad. Once in the super Duolingo ad, it will still count down in the wheel in the corner, but once it has counted down it will move to a continue box at the bottom, whereas before it would change to an x in the corner. I personally really liked the x and it gave me a deep satisfaction in watching the ads. The continue button just makes me really uncomfortable.
Another thing that I have an issue with is that before Spanish (which I am currently learning) I was learning Polish. After having learned Polish for about 6 months and nearing section 2, I was disappointed and confused in the fact that there were no speaking lessons. Speaking is a key part to learning any language, and the fact that there are no speaking lessons for a majority while there is a heavy emphasis on speaking and listening with languages like Spanish is deeply frustrating to me.
Thank you for listening to my feedback/rant.
