Makes learning a language easy!
English is the only language I know, other than some basic French from high school. I have never heard anyone speak Norwegian, never even saw the language written, and so had zero exposure to it before Duolingo. I have been using the app for no more than an hour, and I can already recognize, write, and (loosely) speak some basic words and phrases in Norwegian. The format is simple, and the “game” aspects make it more enjoyable than a traditional lesson. An important note - I have seen a couple reviews where people fault it for spending too much time on the same words and phrases. That might be the case if you already have a background in a language and are just using this to brush up or expend your knowledge, but I can 100% say that the repetition is why I am retaining the content. I have tried other courses and apps, and they ALL overload you with content. Yes, you’ll be exposed to more vocabulary quicker in those, but I find that I was retaining just a tiny fraction of it because it wasn’t beat into my brain the way Duolingo does it. For comparison, after an hour of duolingo, I probably only know 15-20 Norwegian words....but I know them WELL, can use them in sentences, can recognize them when spoken quickly, and the key to all of this - I can translate back and forth without having to stop and think. I think that’s incredible for such a short time spent. The app is free, so go for it!
Mastering Foreign Language!
Duolingo is helping me to successfully master a foreign language. I studied Spanish for 4yrs in high school. (That was 30 yrs ago) Ever since then I’ve tried to continue that learning, with the goal of becoming fully fluent. The challenge is to get from a learning stage to an actual immersion and usage of the language. I have used Duolingo free version at times, and it’s fun and helpful, but... there are limits to how much I learn that way. 3 months ago I signed up for Duolingo Plus. Wow! Wow! Wow! In 3 months time I have learned so much more! I am more motivated to return for lessons daily. And there seems to be a lot more content. I finished all the levels of the free version, and then was stuck with no more increased learning. But with Plus, not only have I increased my Spanish vocabulary. I am mastering more verb conjugation, and gaining a better understanding of phrases and sentence structure. My listening/ understanding of Spanish has multiplied so much, and speaking is improving, too. Understanding native Spanish speakers has always been a big struggle for me. (“Más despacio, por favor” is a fave phrase of mine) I see so much growth in my skills, it blows my mind! I can’t wait for an opportunity to immerse myself in a live setting where I can try my skills again. Duolingo Plus is worth every penny in order for me to reach my fluency goal. I think that by the end of one year , or maybe two, I will achieve this life long goal.
