Duolingo

I do rate Duolingo as a good learning resource in learning a second or third language. I think it does help take you from having little or no knowledge or skills in the language you wish to learn to having the skills and ability to converse and read your chosen language. I do feel that you need to use other apps such as Memrise that help you develop vocabulary as well as your understanding of grammar rules of your chosen language. They compliment each other. I have found the health system on the IPad and IPhone does make progress harder despite the claims of Duolingo developers it’s there to stop binge learning. I found that to meet my daily targets I have to go onto the web version as I do make silly errors of typing etc running out of health.

This made me regret buying an IPhone that I bought because I thought I would be able to access the bots I had enjoyed when using my IPad before my IPad stopped working. Whilst Duolingo is a good learning resource it is being over taken by Memrise. I find Duolingo’s hard selling of monthly paid service frustrating. They offer a way out of the health system offering the ability to download content. I have read feedback on this reading the offline service is not as reliable as they say it is. I would still advocate using Duolingo especially alongside face tuition in the language you’re learning. I have given it fewer stars than my first review of as it needs improving and maybe the ending of the health system.

Pro Membership is a total rip off!!!

I am a long term user of Duolingo and I do really enjoy the App - it's a great fun way to SUPPORT your language learning: just remember to take the "33% fluent" thing with a huge spoonful of salt! However, I have one MAJOR issue with it.

In order to get rid of the very annoying Ads I joined up for the Pro Membership at €7 (or so!) per month: pretty expensive but as I'm learning 3 languages - and I do actually USE the App! - I thought it would be worth it. However, as a previous reviewer has pointed out, in Duolingo you have 5 lives and each, even tiny, mistake or typo costs a life. When you lose the 5 lives you have to either use 500 accumulated "gems" to regain your lives and start playing (learning) again or you have to pay an ADDITIONAL amount (I think it's something like €5) to gain new "life" or wait 5 hours to gain just ONE life! To regain all 5 you are blocked for an ENTIRE DAY! - even despite your being a full "Pro" member!
So I've paid €60 per year and I can't use the App for at least 4 hours most days! It's an absolute rip off and they NEED to change this feature. Until they do, I would strongly advise you not to pay for the Pro feature. If I'm paying €60 per year for one language App I want to be able to USE it when I want to, 24/7 thank you!
