About Duolingo

Duolingo is a learning management system that helps schools offer bite-sized learning modules to teach speaking and reading different languages including Spanish, French, Italian, German, French, and English. The platform offers gamified lessons, which enable trainees to learn and incorporate grammar and vocabulary skills.

Teachers can define classroom instructions, track students’ progress against learning goals, and share personalized feedback on a unified interface. Duolingo offers iOS and Android mobile applications, allowing teams to download multiple training lessons and view them in offline mode. Students can also reset languages in profiles and follow or block team members on a centralized dashboard.

Duolingo lets trainers login via Facebook and Google credentials and manage parental controls. Learners can also compete with other trainees, track scores via leaderboards in real-time, and access Duolingo stories to attempt exercises based on reading and listening comprehension.

An Old Dog Can Learn New Tricks

Reviewed on 29/6/2022

Pros

The app reminds you if you don't engage and encourages you to keep going. This has been beneficial for my child who has ADHD.

Cons

I wish the app was more gamified to keep her interested.

Addictive and fun!

It's very fun, very modern. The paid subscription Super Duolingo is super affordable as well, but if you can stand ads, you are quite okay with the free version as well. I cannot imagine a better platform to learn a new language on the go, on your phone, tabler, or your PC's browser. Do not expect you to be fluent in a week or a month, but every bit helps. Be patient, enjoy the cute experience and check the Klingon language as well.

Pros

Learning languages with Duolingo sure is fun. I have used it for so many years to learn Czech and Japanese. From the cute interface and animations to the option to draw Japanese symbols on the phone screen, Duolingo offers a free and accessible way for anyone to learn new languages.
With their paid Super Duolingo plan, you can get rid of the annoying advertisements - I am one of those impatient people who don't like ads, have unlimited hearts, and you can also have a family plan where you can share the service with your loved ones at a very reasonable price. You can pretty much learn every major language plus some very "exotic" ones such as - Klingon(!!) and High Valyrian (!!!), both very important and useful in our daily lives. I am hoping for Duolingo also to add the option for us to learn Slovenian in the future. It's one of the less used languages but very dear to my heart.
The daily quests and the monthly challenges are fun as well and a reason for competitive users to log in more often and do their "daily grind." Without you realizing it, you will learn so many new words by simply spending 15 min per day, or an hour like me.

Cons

I will be honest - since I am a very competitive person, I spend a lot of time grinding for experience (XP) just so I can beat other users and advance in the leagues. Currently, I am in the Sapphire League, but I feel like giving up for a while because the competitive side of me blocks the one that wants to actually learn the language. Maybe don't make the competition and advancing into a higher league that tough?

New Format Makes Duolingo Completely Unusable

Reviewed on 26/7/2022

I am canceling my subscription and not renewing, and moving to another language program.

I am canceling my subscription and not renewing, and moving to another language program.

Pros

Prior to the new format (which rolled out to some users recently), this app was fun to use, esp. if you want to learn multiple languages.

Cons

The new format doesn't allow the user to practice previous units and does not keep proper track of learning. It is completely unusable, as it tells you that you've completed units you haven't even looked at yet. There really is no customer support; although there is an email, no one responds to inquiries on it, and Duolingo eliminated the most helpful feature--the forums.

A great language learning app that I would recommend for those who are interested in learning a new language.

Pros

Fun and easy to use.
This app makes learning a new language easy overall.
Gamification is an essential part of what makes this software so good.

Cons

I don't like the fact that learning on this app cannot really take place offline
Also the amount of ads that you encounter after completing just 1 segment is just too much.
