Great way to learn the basics of a new language

5.0 2 months ago New

Pros:

There's a great variety of languages available and I like that it offers a placement test if you're already a bit familiar with the language

Cons:

Because I'm living in countries where I'm also learning the languages on Duolingo, I'm learning at a faster rate than the application and I find I eventually get bored at the level it put me at in the beginning as I've surpassed it with real-life learning and development. So I end up stop using the app. Would love to be offered a level placement reassessment for such cases.

Great for staying fresh and learning the basics

4.0 6 days ago New

Comments: I am grateful for Duolingo all in all. I can hold minor conversations in Spanish thanks mostly to this app. I highly recommend and will still use until I feel and stay fluent. Unless, I find something better which seems unlikely. You WILL absolutely need other ways to study the language to become fluent in tandem with this app.

Pros:

It is Free! Love that. I have used the free version for 7 years now. I am really grateful for the program and have gotten very far in learning Spanish. The daily streak keeps me doing it daily. I have only missed a handful of days in 7-8 years.

Cons:

Verb conjugation is really POOR in Duo. No overall reviews of each verb. I wish they had full lessons dedicated to just verb conjugation. It really only teaches you based on pure memorization. Which is good, until you realize how much more you need to REALLY learn a language. For audio I wish you could control the speed. On audio lessons the normal speed is for fluent locals and the slow speed is for pure beginners. I need a mid speed so I can learn to get faster. So the other con is being able to keep up in conversation with native speakers.

A total decimation of a once great learning tool

1.0 3 weeks ago New

Pros:

If you have a base knowledge of the language its okay to use to keep fresh

Cons:

Straight up capitalistic practices. Removing several features. Charging a crazy amount for them. Continously advertising their own product. This is just the 10k foot review. As a long time user I'm very very disappointed in the direction of this once great app

An amazing tool for learning languages

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: It is a great tool for beginners, the notifications help the user stay motivated and compromised. It is very easy to use and the ux is great.

Pros:

I love how easy and intuitive it is, it's fun to practice and it keeps me motivated.

Cons:

It can feel a little boring after some time because the exercises are the same.
