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.

As a brazilian trilingual person (I spoke portuguese, english and spanish), it is a way for keep my language skills sharp, and also to learn about other languages. Nowdays I am learning japanese, and it has been a very good experience, I had contact with the language on the past, but even for a person which had not have it, the way which the App explain everything, is pretty easy and well guided. My mother is learning spanish using it, and it is awesome how she can talk with me and explain some complexes things using the skills which she learned through Duolingo.

Pros

The ease of use, the contents inside it, the exercises, the grammatic explanations are pretty good, also they have some "died languages", as latin, Irish, and some other dialects, which without this kind of technology would be tend to disappear.

Cons

Sometimes the exercises repeat so much, at point to make the user bored, but I know that some people learns with repetition. Therefore, I do not see so much advantage to choose the paid version of it.

Excellent language learning app

Duolingo has definitely impacted communications with others who speak different languages. Comprehension of written communication has seen the most positive change, followed by the ability to speak and then listening/understanding verbal communication. I believe this is due to the nuance of individual speakers' accents and phrasing. Overall, the learning attributable to Duolingo is significant.

Pros

I highly recommend Duolingo. There's a free option available, which includes adds and some limited features, yet the Pro option is excellent. This is definitely a "get out of it what you put in to it" tool, and if utilized regularly, users will learn a language. Lessons focus on "useful" learning i.e. key words and phrases vs. conjugation of verbs and other grammatical elements. Those things are incorporated in to the lessons, yet the user almost doesn't notice because it's so well integrated.

Cons

The sequencing of some of the lessons seems a bit strange sometimes, as why one topic comes after another and not before can be odd. However, it's minor and perhaps even more of a preference.

Reasons for Switching to Duolingo

There's more latitude for users to pace the learning based on their own needs/interest and abilities.

When I started I already knew some spanish so I checked to see if it was easy and no it wasnt. Plus it was also wrong. The correct term for girl is chika and for boy it is chiko. But it said it was nina nino. Plus it was very hard. I was pressured into using this and I dont really like it. I have a grandpa who knows five languages and lots of different dialects. And I have a Great Grandma who knows Italian. So overall duolingo is very no.

The best app for learning a language on your own

Reviewed on 13/12/2022

Pros

Duolingo has all the tools you need to learn the basics of a language or even master it. What I like most is that it has multiple features to learn at your pace and it does not rush you into learning, which is very important. Another thing that I like is that it has a lot of animations to help you assimilate the meanings behind every meaning of a word.

Cons

Duolingo is a really good app but sometimes it troubleshoots, other than that the app is awesome!
