"Far and away the best language-learning app." —The Wall Street Journal

"Duolingo may hold the secret to the future of education."—TIME Magazine

PC Magazine Editors' Choice for Language Learning: "Among iPhone apps for learning or practicing a language, you can't beat Duolingo."

"The most productive means of procrastination I’ve ever discovered. The short lesson blocks are painless and peppy, and reaching the next level (and then the level after that) becomes addictive." —Slate

Duolingo is changing the way people learn languages.

With Duolingo, you learn a language completely for free. You have fun while you learn, leveling up and competing with friends.

Yeah, it's pretty sweet.

Best game

Very entertaining if you are sick or bored, and in a very little time you can learn a language. There is more languages than almost any other Spanish app on the App Store, and it is fun enough to the point where you will not get sick of it. And, say you were from Spain or Mexico and wanted to learn English or Vietnamese or something, you can change your language to Spanish, and learn that language. DuoLingo has also just opened up a new game mode called bots. This is also very educational because you are actually contacting and texting a real person, so it really helps you interact with a real person, and have common sense over what they might say. So in a real case scenario you may be able to communicate with a person through the language just from what this free game taught you. Most of my family has this game, and they have all reviewed this a 5 star game. If you want to learn a new language, then this is the game for you. Good luck!!

Great update

The bots have a lot of room for improvement, but I'm already learning a lot from them that I couldn't have learned through the normal lessons.

In general, Duolingo is probably the best language learning software in the world right now (definitely better than Rosetta Stone), and it's free. Learning another language is great for the mind, and Duolingo makes it fun and easy to start. You could spend only five minutes each day on this app and learn so much. This service won't make you fluent, but it's the best way to start unless you have a family member or friend you live with that is fluent in the language you want to learn.

New chat is amazing but still a little sloppy

I'm by no means a fluent French speaker, but after a few years of classes in school and a few years of dabbling in Duolingo, I know some of my chat responses are viable but unrecognized in the app. It is an amazing concept but I would very much like to see more accuracy and supported responses to fully replicate the experience of an actual conversation, or in this case, a text message-like conversation. Keep up the great work Duolingo, and thank you for making an amazing app that makes learning such a convenient and pleasurable experience.
