Ratings and Reviews

Rating: 4.7/5 based on 23M+ reviews

3 ★ The ads are SUPER freaking loud!! I had a 3 day trial of the premium version of the app and no ads was very nice. I *would* pay for premium if it was a single payment (like a lifetime price) rather than a continued subscription model. Im on a fixed income which means I cant just shell out $ constantly for a subscription like this. Offer a one time payment flat fee and I'd definitely save up to buy it. Otherwise I guess I'll just keep going deaf because of ads that are unnecessarily LOUD.

4 ★ The app makes it enjoyable to learn a new language. I like that I can follow my friends that also use the app, as well congratulate them in my feed when they reach a certain achievement. The daily quests motivate me to learn. The lessons are fair- not too difficult or too easy. The achievement badges are a fun touch. I just wish that there were more / extra badges after completing them. Also, the match madness in the sections are unreasonable. I need more than 1:45 to reach 120 matches. :(

1 ★ Every time you get used to the UI, every time there's a learning tool that's even slightly helpful, you can always expect there to be an update that makes it all just a little bit worse, a little less convenient. The ability to practice writing Kanji was incredibly helpful for memorization, so of course that had to go. The ability to click a button and go over past mistakes was great, so why change it? The constant updates are incessantly aggravating and incomprehensible.

3 ★ I really like this app. It's been fun learning Spanish. I signed up for the free trial of Super Duolingo, and when the trial period was over, I expected to be charged the monthly rate. Instead they charged me the FULL YEAR! I wasn't prepared financially for it, so I attempted to get a refund. I got the runaround, thry said that it was handled by Google Play, but the transaction isn't in my purchase list. I've sent an email to Duolingo with no response. I'll increase my rating if they respond.

3 ★ There are both pros and cons of working with this app. Some annoying factors about Duolingo include: too much repetition of easy nouns; not providing enough practice or explanations of the more complex grammatical aspects of the language; not including enough practical phrases; seriously annoying and repetitive ads with considerable frequency. they do of course want you to pay for the app which does eliminate the ads. On the positive side, I have learned a fair amount with the free version.

3 ★ I've used Duolingo for 5 years & I pay for the yearly sub. It's gotten better lately, but it's also added a "pay for play" option that's really really annoying. There are exercises that you cannot possibly complete within the allotted time-- oh, but if you buy these "timer boosts" you'll get more time!! You *can* earn some credits through doing quests but it's like any other pay for play game- not nearly what you need. It's really disappointing to see this in a learning app, esp one I pay for.

2 ★ The gamification is fun. However, a lot of stuff is buggy, and they don't even acknowledge feedback. My wife and I are on a paid plan, and I don't have all the features she does. There's very little explanation on lessons; you're mostly learning by mistakes. Lessons often give less XP than they claim at the beginning. I sometimes don't get credit for completing challenges. Overall, it is a good resource that I'll keep using, but be prepared for a LOT of frustrations.

3 ★ Ok I'm a linguist and I think that Duolingo's teaching methods are not super effective for learning a language. It relies too heavily on direct translation, even though they've developed exercises to learn through context, which is a faster and more effective learning style after your first module in a foreign language. It's also mad annoying in more ways than I can count. The good part about Duolingo is that it's addicting. It's better than phone games or social media. Good lang supplement.

4 ★ I enjoy Duolingo. I know more Spanish than I would if I didn't use the app. However, after 8 years as a loyal user, at the moment I don't feel any closer to being able to speak Spanish. I can listen and read, but I'm not comfortable speaking. Maybe I need a different approach. So I'd say this app is useful for developing vocabulary and reading skills. My listening skills have improved thanks to the Duolingo Podcast. I still recommend the app.

4 ★ I started using Duolingo to learn French about 6 months ago, and I really like it! I love how repetitive it is, and they give lots of examples on how to use new words, and where to put them in a sentence. Using other paid apps, I wasn't retaining information as well. I didn't give this 5 stars only because I do have to look up my questions sometimes, and the practice tests are 95% of the time things I learned in the very beginning. If I have to hear "Tu manges une pizza" one more time....

5 ★ The lessons are well paced and easy to follow. The ads in the free version aren’t intrusive or disruptive. It’s easy to review and practice lessons. Everything loads quickly even with my poor connection. All around a great experience with no glaring hang ups and thus far an effective learning tool as i feel that i am making actual progress whereas other apps had me feeling like i wasn't progressing at all.

3 ★ It's a great tool to learn a language but could be better. Sometimes, the microphone feature doesn't understand you, and you lose a heart for that, which isn't fair. We also used to have to review a lesson or it would "break," and it was helpful to refresh your memory. Now, you have to use your points to review. Also, the little people are bigger than the words, which splits them up in a sentence sometimes. They should make them smaller.

3 ★ Updated: 12/23 - I've been a paid member for a while. Unfortunately it's starting to get boring. The changes are constant. They forece you to do challenges with your friends. I feel sorry for the friends I have because I literally log on just to complete one exercise so I don't lose my streak. Other than that, considering removing my membership. ____ I really like the app, but it keeps repeating the same lessons. I've also lost the functionality to practice writing hangul.

5 ★ Update: as I've continued to use the new system and as they've updated it like 5 more times, it's actually gotten decent again. I like it again now I absolutely LOVED the old set up. Used it for over a year. Felt like it really allowed my to move forward with learning as well as reviewing old lessons. Really, really enjoyed it. I do NOT like the new set up. It's so frustrating I'm thinking of dropping Duolingo and switching over to something else. Why did they have to go and ruin a great thing?

4 ★ The paid version is much better than the unpaid version, but it used to be very good unpaid. They made some changes which is expected. The lessons are decent, some of the exercises are very easy especially when they give you the words to choose from. One thing I wish was different is the 15 minutes of x2 XP. I always seem to get this award when I'm getting off the app, so I don't get to use the x2 XP. I would prefer this to be something that I can store for later use.
