An amazing tool for learning languages

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: It is a great tool for beginners, the notifications help the user stay motivated and compromised. It is very easy to use and the ux is great.

Pros:

I love how easy and intuitive it is, it's fun to practice and it keeps me motivated.

Cons:

It can feel a little boring after some time because the exercises are the same.

Great way to learn the basics of a new language

5.0 2 months ago New

Pros:

There's a great variety of languages available and I like that it offers a placement test if you're already a bit familiar with the language

Cons:

Because I'm living in countries where I'm also learning the languages on Duolingo, I'm learning at a faster rate than the application and I find I eventually get bored at the level it put me at in the beginning as I've surpassed it with real-life learning and development. So I end up stop using the app. Would love to be offered a level placement reassessment for such cases.

A total decimation of a once great learning tool

1.0 2 weeks ago New

Pros:

If you have a base knowledge of the language its okay to use to keep fresh

Cons:

Straight up capitalistic practices. Removing several features. Charging a crazy amount for them. Continously advertising their own product. This is just the 10k foot review. As a long time user I'm very very disappointed in the direction of this once great app

Learning can be fun

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Very pleasant, the first platform that allowed me to get back to learning languages, I can't thank them enough!

Pros:

I always found learning languages to be quite the chore, exams, tests and whatnot, for someone with an actual phobia of exams (long story, horrible experience in school), this is the only platform that allowed me to learn a language and not feel like I'm learning anything, the gamification is on a whole new level, Thank you Duolingo team for allowing me to learn and actually enjoy learning!

Cons:

Most users abuse the leaderboard, this is not much of a problem, all one has to do is turn their account private and learn in peace.
