  • Useful app with a obnoxious grading system

    By amulz
    I‘m teaching myself German and use Doulingo as a supplemental activity. I despise the grading system because - they use words WITHOUT introducing them - they don’t account for typos (auto correct doesn’t help either) - the return key is right above delete which invariably leads to submitting answers that are incorrect - the continue/submit button is precarious for someone like me who chooses to voice dictate. Cancelling voice dictation, I have pressed continue before I could correct the dictation - the use of incorrect words in the choice options annoying when there’s only a one letter difference My quibbling aside, it is a helpful tool and it is free. It’s too bad the ad free model is an expensive subscription. Those ads can’t be worth that much. The chat bots are not nearly as much fun as they should be. They just go on their merry way if you don’t answer the right way.
  • The health has to go

    This used to be a five star app. I used it before I went to Italy and it was so helpful. I use it primarily to brush up on my Spanish, which I am conversational in so the health/ loss of lives are not really a problem. I decided to try French, a language I do not know at all, and the health makes it impossible to learn. I will confuse things I just learned and lose life after life and then you can’t play for an entire day because you only get 5 lives and they take 5 hours to regenerate!! It’s ridiculous. I can lose all 5 lives in French in like 20 minutes on ‘Basics 2’ and then I can’t practice any language for at least 5 hours. I still use the app for Spanish, but I don’t plan on bothering with a language I do not know well because it’s impossible to get sufficient time in unless you are willing to pay money for new lives. I understand the ads completely they don’t get in the way at all and it’s reasonable for the developers to want to make money. However, I do not know why anyone would think the health was a good idea.

    This app could be good but has major limitations. Health feature is stupid. Disengaging for sure. The phrasing isn’t very conversational or practical for actual use. The biggest problem is the voice recognition. It’s horrible!!! And it prevents you from moving on, even if you got it exactly right. This app was disappointing.

    What happened with the latest update? Waiting time between practice to practice if mistaken! And all those adds What happened all of the sudden? Very hard to use the app in this form I wish you would reverse it back to what it was....

  • Do not pay for Duolingo blackmail!

    This app is a bad joke. I want to learn Italian so I paid for “plus”. I can’t get out of the first level because if you make a mistake Duolingo punishes you with “Health Points” and you are locked out from using an app you paid to use. You have to wait at least five hours to study again. The disgusting part is you can BUY more health. The greedy and unethical owners of Duolingo should be ashamed. Don’t pay for this scam.
  • Efficient learning

    I am currently learning German and so far I have gained a lot of insight on the language. All of the lessons provide quite a bit of interaction to discover one topic. The one thing that I would like to have been included for certain languages, however, is a section explaining verb conjugations. Without these, it’s a matter of having to memorize verb forms for pronouns such as he, she, and we that are used as sentence examples in translations. This makes learning a language a little more difficult. But, overall, this is a very good app that I would recommend.
  • BEST. APP. EVER.

    By Keneil Morris
    It’s made language-learning so easy. As a 12 yr old in 7th grade I’ve got to say this is the best I’ve come across. It’s so kid friendly and so colorful and had flavor if you know what I mean. The thing with the groups is just amazing, you have people you can study with and talk to while your learning different languages. Honestly, it deserves a 4.9/5. It’s just straight amazing, I couldn’t ask for anything better.
  • Okay

    At first I loved the app I was learning so much but one day I went on and it deleted all of my progress and now I can't get it back and I am very upset 😕
  • Lives for the plus version? Seriously?

    By darkmaster204
    Loved this app, then I saw they added lives. I thought to myself sure, I can support the app and get rid of lives for 10 bucks a month. Nope, even with the plus version you have 5 lives, you lose one for every mistake, which you do a lot learning a new language (go figure). What the hell is the point of paying 10 bucks of month??? There is literally no benefit. Lost a customer until you fix this very poorly thought out change...
