  • Generally Good

    1. Maybe add some kind of once-a-week review/conclusion. Explain the further concepts learned that week. Duolingo is very practice-based, but learners can really benefit from formal diagrams to make things clearer. 2. Increase incentive to earn lingots. There's nothing to buy in the store. 3. Please don't make the speakers more appropriate for their sentences! I like the funny situation created by the characters saying silly things!
  • Super helpful!

  • Great app but hate the heart/ life system😡

    By kpc_90
    Its a great app for learning languages, i loved it before they added the heart meter, serously 5 hours for one life.... wayy to much time, would play way more often if i had to wait less or no time.
  • Great for beginners

    By Greenisthefam
    I’m currently in a Spanish class and all my teacher speaks is Spanish. I can understand him a little because he’ll do hand motions and some of the words sound a lot like other words in English. But still 1000000000% recommend using this app if your a beginner
  • Problem :/

    By eveyrockie
    I'm learning Chinese and when I got to the "tap the pairs" part, the screen became stuck and it started to lag.
  • Heart system

    By Chris9991682
    Heart system is terrible especially when there is inherit errors or nitpick issues on typos
  • Great!

    By BookwormCat
    Nothing is perfect, and this app has a ways to go before it can be the best it can be, but I love it, my German teacher loves it, and it even has new and more improved features every now and then.
  • Non existent customer service, many technical problems

    By kcoigne
    I’ll preface this review by saying I like learning Spanish and Italian on Duolingo, but their complete lack of customer service and many technical errors in the app infuriate me. The health bar system is absolutely terrible, get 5 questions total wrong within 5 hours and you lose all your “health” and get kicked out of whatever lesson you’re in. But to further that flaw, the app is inconsistent in what it penalizes you for. For example, no penalties for lack of proper punctuation, but if you flip flop 2 letters while trying to spell a word in a new language they penalize you and tell you you’re wrong. Other times you’ll type a translation you’ve done plenty of times before, and it tells you a word it wrong, and the correct word is one you’ve never seen or been introduced to. It took me a lot of digging to find a direct customer service contact instead of being directed to post a question in the public forums to have another user answer, and when I finally did find said contact for Duolingo support I got a confirmation email saying I could email more details and attachments about my case, so I’ve sent more then 10 additional emails with screenshots of problems, still with no response. It’s almost as if they keep the app “free” by making it have so many technical flaws that cause you to lose health so your options are either to pay cash to get back in, or wait until the next day to do another small amount of learning before being kicked out
  • Totally Disappointed

    By hazelbell2
    When started to use this app it was free and you could use it for long periods of time now you can't because you run out of Health and then you have to wait several hours or you have to pay to continue so beware it's a misnomer that this app is free.
