Perfect for increasing your vocabulary

5.0 4 weeks ago New

Pros:

I recommend this to everyone I speak to that wants to learn Spanish. It has really helped me increase my vocabulary.

Cons:

"Spanish" is actually Mexican Spanish on the app... rather than Castellano which is Spain's main and official language. The world is biggerthan America but some companies don't allow for that in your software. I know that i can still input Castellano but when learning new words it's not helpful.

Best Language Learning App

5.0 last week New

Comments: I can't forget this one time when I couldn't believe I understood full sentences in Spanish, and Duolingo stated that I was only 23% fluent in Spanish. I thought it wasn't much until I shocked myself by fully understanding what those full sentences were saying. Duolingo seems so easy in terms of making it a kind of game in learning and the next thing you know, you can easily understand the language. I appreciate the reminders as well, they can be persistent but do mean nothing but well.

Pros:

I've been using Duoling for 9 years now and appreciate how I can easily retain the lessons about foreign languages I thought would be hard to learn. I love the fact that I can not only track my progress but the app itself is encouraging, it shows you how far you've come and how much you've learned. You won’t even feel that you've been learning for quite some time now because the tests and assessments appear to be easy but then the next thing you know, you'll be able to read and comprehend sentences in a foreign language you are learning.

Cons:

As a user of Duolingo for 9 years, I can't say anything against it because it helps me learn a new language. I can easily change the language I want to learn whenever I want to.

A total decimation of a once great learning tool

1.0 2 months 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

Great for staying fresh and learning the basics

4.0 last month New

Comments: I am grateful for Duolingo all in all. I can hold minor conversations in Spanish thanks mostly to this app. I highly recommend and will still use until I feel and stay fluent. Unless, I find something better which seems unlikely. You WILL absolutely need other ways to study the language to become fluent in tandem with this app.

Pros:

It is Free! Love that. I have used the free version for 7 years now. I am really grateful for the program and have gotten very far in learning Spanish. The daily streak keeps me doing it daily. I have only missed a handful of days in 7-8 years.

Cons:

Verb conjugation is really POOR in Duo. No overall reviews of each verb. I wish they had full lessons dedicated to just verb conjugation. It really only teaches you based on pure memorization. Which is good, until you realize how much more you need to REALLY learn a language. For audio I wish you could control the speed. On audio lessons the normal speed is for fluent locals and the slow speed is for pure beginners. I need a mid speed so I can learn to get faster. So the other con is being able to keep up in conversation with native speakers.

Fun and easy to learn tool.

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: The learning trails keep me hooked at every stage. I learn quickly, practically and with fun. I like it a lot.

Pros:

An app that's like a language school. It's easy to learn, and it's fun, because the stages and the learning path keep you hooked on the app.

Cons:

The cost could be a little lower, but I understand, because as I said, the learning is comparable to face-to-face schools. It's just as good. But because it's an app, it could be cheaper.
