Excellent language learning app

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: 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.

They locked me out of settings

1.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: Bad. After advancing in Spanish and French they don’t know how to correct the sentences. If you write a sentence that is valid and correct but not the same as the Duolingo set up. They say is wrong …..

Pros:

That It’s only for beginners when you get to an advance stage they don’t know how to handle it

Cons:

They locked me out of settings. Can’t manage my subscription. Debiting my credit card and I can’t cancel subscription !!!

Best Language-Learning App

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: I have found it to be the most effective, engaging and interesting of language apps I have explored.

Pros:

It is easy to use the app. It is a valuable tool to acquire a second language, or enable me to join in a conversation.

Cons:

There are no cons in my opinion. I have tried other apps, and enjoy it the most.
