The Greatest

Quite possibly, the best free language app on the planet. I'm taking French so I need to make sure I remember the stuff that I learn and Duolingo is an amazing way to go back and review the stuff you have learned. I am genuinely surprised this is free with no gimmicks or having to pay to "take your learning offline" like Busuu. It is comparable to Rosetta Stone. Great design, nice and simple. I only wish they made it more like the website; the lingot store, the discussion under every "prompt", and the microphone system. 25 thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By far the best language app for Windows Phone. That said, I'd like to change a few things. I'd like the ability to change a few things. I would like the ability to flag words I feel I need to practice. Also, I keep loosing proficiency on levels I have completed. Especially those levels I used shortcuts on. It seems like proficiency is bases on a timer rather than getting specific words wrong in subsequent lessons. It seems like it would be complicated to program, but it would be really cool if weak words were triggered by specific errors rather than just cropping up periodically. Thanks for the great program 😊

It's pretty awesome!

I like it because it teaches different languages and helps you understand them, but the only problem is once you chose a language and start it, you have to finish it before you go to the next language. Closing the app doesn't work , so chose wisely with the languages you want to learn.

Fun, and efficient

I like the way it doesn't lecture you on the words, or tell you to say the word 50 times. But right away it puts the words first in pictures, and then puts them in very simple sentences. It doesn't tell you this is the feminine or masculine version of the word. But as you go through you start picking up on those small things. It also switches between typing, speaking and clicking on the right word, and changes from your native language to the one you're learning so you get used to translating both ways. Really great app.

One of the best apps ever!

To start off I don't think there's anything I dislike. The app is very well presented and functions perfectly. The lessons aren't very difficult but despite being fairly easy the method used is highly effective! I have been using this app on my GS6 edge for a while and I'm one of those people who never downloads apps they won't use, to me Duolingo is an essential app! My downloaded apps consist of Flipboard, Facebook, PowerAmp, Spotify, Tidal, Soundhound, Shizam, Photoshop and Duolingo. Unlike my friends who have pages of seemingly random apps, I am very picky about what apps I have and only keep ones I use. Point being that I'd recommend very few apps and Duolingo is one of them. 5 Star!

Makes Learning Languages Easy

It's an easy and fun way of learning languages, I am taking German and Russian on this and am enjoying it, My only problem is that Japanese is not an option at all for any languages. Other than that It is a great app to use to learn a lot of languages. I recommend that you or your friends that want to learn foreign languages, download this app.

Rote Learning

So far, this app is good for an introduction to a new language, with some minimal coaching for pronunciation. Requires umlauts (German), enyes (Spanish), etc...so it is a good idea to have your shortcut keys down. Everything functions just fine, and no glitches downloading or installing. After using this software a bit, I'd add that there is a good variety of exercises to keep the pace going, and there is really an amazing amount of material here. I would recommend this app.

you will love duolingo

lots of encouragement, progress report, fun, pictures, variety of presentation, reminders to keep at it; could benefit from repeat pronunciation at times--they go by fast!

Fabulous app, across all platforms

I love this app. I have been using it off and on for awhile. I find that even if I haven't used it for a few weeks or months that I can pretty easily remember where I was and pick it back up. I have recommended it to several people, native English speakers wishing to learn other languages and non-native speakers wishing to learn English. I am currently learning both Spanish and German. I have no issues with trying to learn two different languages at once.
