  • Duolingo is great, but the app is not

    By Sugarinyourgastank
    I love Duo on the web, and I used to love the Duo app, but now all it does it make me angry. I’m not a fan of the crown levels, but I’ll stick it out until they iron out all the kinks. But WHY does the app have to have a completely separate reward system? It’s confusing and not compatible. I HATE the health system. It makes me feel like I can only do simple lessons on the app because instead of teaching me it will just shut me out of learning if I get 5 wrong. It’s not helpful, and it totally negates the whole “take a tiny lesson and keep up your streak!” Nope, only if you’re taking a lesson you already know will you be able to do so, otherwise you’ll just have to get on the web in order to keep your streak. Hope you’re somewhere with a laptop! It feels like it’s all set up to make me spend more money instead of learn. Duo I love you and please change this!!!
  • Used to be good

    By Rachelawesomeness
    Before it was all about learning, now it's all about gems (which you can purchase with your own money) and you can't even learn anymore. I used to love it because it had Irish Gaelic, which few language websites have, but it's gone stale. It got too popular and now it's unhelpful and unsatisfying. When you're learning a language, you should be allowed to make mistakes. Now, if you make four or more, you can't without paying the price. Unsatisfied.
  • Please add Finnish!

    By Ktedmonb
    I LOVED duolingo for learning French! I am so sad to not find the same kind of program for Finnish. Please, Duolingo, add Finnish!
  • Amazing App

    By FireBolt1247
    This was the best learning apps ever. There are so many languages that are all free. Very interactive and fun to use. Recommend this to anyone who wants to learn a language fast or slow easy or hard. Love it.
  • Great learning app

    By HannahL27
    I started learning Spanish on dDuoLingo at the end of April, and I am surprised at how much I have picked up. It’s sort of just a hobby so I’m only using the app right now, but it is fun and for my purposes, effective.
  • Almost There

    By marcusanjo
    I really like how Duolingo is helping me get back into learning Japanese which I stopped in high school. My only critique would probably be that there are no kind of explanations for things. Having already had a formal education in Japanese, I understand grammar rules, so it’s easy to just plug in Duolingo vocab and make sentences. I would understand, however, someone brand new to Japanese having absolutely no idea how to use particles like は, を, に, etc. or any understanding of grammar patterns and not being aided with explanation. Even further along in lessons, there are words that basically translate into the same English equivalent. It would be nice to know the difference, if there is any, between words like ぜんぜん and まったく without having to fish through google for an explanation. So, yeah. Explanations on the mobile app for grammar rules would be helpful.
  • You can’t learn without writing exercises

    By BG75894302
    The Mandarin lessons on the iPhone and iPad app don’t let you type using the keyboard anymore. You can only create sentences by picking from the word bank. This feature exists in the browser version, but it’s relatively clumsy on the iPad. Writing exercises exist for other languages. Not having this feature makes the app basically useless for learning Mandarin.
  • Why health and Crown levels?!

    By Maclay Mirrot
    Before health and Crown levels I loved the app, but now it seems that the beginners can’t learn what language they want because of mistakes!! I hate the health because if you make 5 mistakes, you can’t learn anything! I hate the crown levels because you don’t know what new words you are going to learn and it was easier to get complete that little section!!!!!! I would love to give this app a 5-Star but because of these problems, 2 stars!!
  • Plus Not !!

    By sirsd
    So I paid for the plus thinking that was all I pay and now I see gems that you need to advance .. So you now have to purchase gems to learn quicker ... Disappointment ! It’s a great app you just have to buy gems after buying the plus to learn faster ... it’s like $99 for 3500 gems .. the app does not explain this.. Deceiving and bullsnot..
  • App isn’t spectacular.

    By rbw2123
    The computer version of this program is so much better than the app.
