Ratings and Reviews
With its friendly approach and awesome updates, Duolingo’s long been one of our favorite apps for learning another language. Its secret: making the process genuinely fun. Engaging mini-games test your reading, writing, and speaking skills, and joining a club (where you can encourage and compete with others) adds a great social element. Bonus: all those languages and games are available for free!
Superb vocabulary builder- the best on the market by far
44 years old, did a little Spanish at school but was pretty rubbish. Tried to put some phrases together last year on a five day break to Barcelona but not much more than greetings and thank yous. My sons started using this for German so I thought I’d give it a go for Spanish - oh my word, what an addictive, supportive and fun way to learn in just three days of about 20 mind my vocabulary was easily over 100 words and I found myself translating food items and ordering them in my head whilst walking around a supermarket. In three days I was putting conversations together such as ‘Buenos Dias, yo quiero una mesa para quatro personas por favor’ and a few variations on this as well as dozens of other useful phrases. It is really addictive and In just four days I was comfortably speaking and translating written and spoken Spanish better than I ever did at school. I think this would prepare anyone for GCSE level study in just a few weeks. I’ve yet to see how far this will take me but already I am genuinely amazed at how successful I am at learning another language. I’m even tempted to try a completely different language that has no similar roots to English and see how that goes but I think I’ll stick to Spanish for at least a few months first. I cannot believe this is available for free; I don’t think you’ll find anything better anywhere.
This app is brilliant! I didn’t expect to make progress very quickly as I struggled to pick up languages in secondary school. The alternating between translating from English-german, german-english, listening and typing what you hear, choosing from multiple choice options etc. Seems to be a very effective way to really help the information to sink in. Differences between masculine and feminine (der/die/das/den) are difficult and sometimes involve a bit of memorisation but the structure of learning duolingo uses has resulted in me beginning to understand how and why words are used as well as memorising. As long as you frequently revise sections/practice, duolingo is a shockingly easy way to learn a new language!
Note: flaws wise - the gems are a little irritating to collect. I want to learn german in as much depth as I can so I don’t like that the “extras” (flirting/idioms and proverbs) require a massive amount of diamonds to collect. Extra health (lost when making mistakes) is far too expensive to purchase. Personally I’m happy to practice 5 times if need be but others probably don’t like that. Also the practice section seems to usually test on animals/easier parts, id like to be challenged on everything?
Amazing app, highly recommend giving it a go! I’d pay for it if need be.
