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.

Learning made easy and fun

This is my third attempt in life to learn Spanish. I took it once in middle school and tried to pick it up again a few years ago. I work at a Mexican restaurant where a few employees I work with only speak Spanish and a few others who speak Spanish and English, so having people I want to communicate with and I can practice on gave me a reason to try again. I’ve actually learned more in a week on this app then I did a year in Spanish class. I used a similar language app that was monthly subscription but I didn’t get too far on it. This one is free, fun, challenging, and I can’t wait to see where I’ll be in a month and a year from now. My only issue with the app is when it says you used the wrong word even though you used the word it consistently used before. Example. I had to translate ‘Yo necesito una camisa’ and I wrote ‘I need a shirt.’ Well up to this point, it’s always been ‘I need’ but it said I used the wrong word and ‘I require’ was correct. Which it is, but it wasn’t consistent. I redid that question and used ‘ I need ‘ again and got it right. This has happened a few other times as well. Most of the time it will say ‘Another correct solution is’ and give you another possible answer. On some rare occasions it will say you used the wrong word even though it’s the one you always used and it will say you got it right the second time around. Amazing app, though. Thank you!

Better than I thought

After having used Babel, Busuu, and Rosetta Stone I’m surprised to say that Duolingo is absurdly better made than I used to think. I’ve been using Duolingo on and off for years (half-heartily for awhile and only seriously in the recent past) and I’ve found that the flaws which once seemed glaring are actually not as bad as some other language learning apps. The voice work is an order of magnitude better than Busuu and the lesson structure ,despite seeming somewhat obtuse, is actually incredibly helpful. The pseudo game structure of lessons also helps to keep practice from becoming too much of a chore. I’m probably not saying anything new here but I feel like the only thing that keeps Duolingo from being vastly superior to other language apps is the lack of grammatical instruction in some of the languages. Languages like French have more recently had grammar lessons added even from the start of the course, but Korean has none. From my use of other apps that do a better job explaining grammar I’ve found that Duolingo works really well as a companion app to build vocabulary and just practice hearing/using the language, and is possibly more useful once you have the basics of a language down. The only other language app I’ve used that comes close to rivaling the versatility of Duolingo that I’ve used thus far is Lingodeer which is much better for learning Korean than any other app I’ve encountered.
