  • Excellent, could do even more

    By jcpac
    I think that something that could benefit Duolingo even more would be if they shared more performance data with users. Using that we could study the words were struggling with and concepts that require more time and allocate our energy more effectively, instead of just seeing four bars on a lesson and understanding that any less means it needs work. Greek conversation bots would be greatly appreciated.
  • Good, but don’t like recent changes

    By Acsking
    Love using this app to learn Spanish and appreciate the discussion forums that provide more insight (although access to these is NOT offered in the app on the iPhone so I’ve had to resort to using the the app on my iPad to optimize my experience). However, recent changes have altered the experience on the iPad for the worse — specifically, the ability to add appropriate accents used to be available on screen, but has since disappeared. And a smaller issue, but still an annoyance, is that the return key no longer is accented to move to the next exercise, and requires a touch to the screen to advance. Otherwise, a solid free app for learning Spanish.
  • I am bilingual now, thanks to Duolingo.

    Love how easy it is to learn! With daily small lessons, it is easy to find time to practice. It is motivating to practice with daily reminders. The daily streak score has made practice close to midnight on many occasions. I have had over 100 day streak on several occasions. I can “buy” a day off to keep my streak with “lingots” points I earn.
  • Awesome but has some problems

    By percyjacksonforlife
    For Greek and others some letters we cannot type because they are not on the key bored
  • Wonderful app, but I lost all my porch when I updated from iPhone 6 to iPhone 8.

    By JDB-P/T
    I love this app, but when I updated from iPhone 6 to iPhone 8, I lost all my points and my standing. I can test into the program, but I don’t know a way to get my couple-of-thousand points back.
  • Thank you!

    The ways this app can teach you are amazing. I have started a few days ago and I can almost speak Deutsch. Now there’s one thing I’d recommend: Have a lower amount of ads. I know it’s hard to remove them, as you’d lose money. But it’s really unpleasant to leave a lesson and have a Toy Blast ad pop up. It makes me lose my focus. Besides that, the app is amazing. Keep up the great work.
  • Muy buena aplicación

  • Fail!

    By LucyFurbear
    I originally gave this a 4 star rating but now changed it to 1 star. I’m using it to learn spanish, you have to pick correct phrases, pictures, sometimes repeat in the microphone or type the correct phrase. I am stuck on a phrase I am typing correctly (it shows you the correct answer in case you get it wrong) & it still says incorrect and now I can’t progress. So the app gets a 1 star fail. I do not see a way to contact the developer, so maybe this will get their attention.
  • Excellent

    By Hi3u+)3pz@i
    The best way to learn new language, thanks!
  • I'm a sucker for rewards!

    By Nadiah25
    I love getting points for my efforts. One thing that would make it even better would be a glossary of the words you're teaching us. I don't learn them from a single exposure.
