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!

Nice app, but beware of total waste of time

This is a very nice app/game. It will help you have a glimpse of a foreign language. And if you spend enough time (years?) even read/understand a foreign language. Make no mistake though - the focus of this app is so that you *do not* learn a foreign language to the level you will start perfecting it while speaking with foreigners. It’s focus is to keep you see ads for as long of possible. This is not a technical limitation but rather a design choice and business model. (The percent of native language to target language question is ridiculously low (max 10%) and all requests to do something about it were deflected by the team for various reasons)

Start using it, then make a calculation for yourself and see how much it will take you to complete a course. Note how bad you remain at writing/formulating sentences in the target language and decide if that time is worth wasting. Compare it to the value you would get from attending language courses, or possibly other apps focused on teaching you a language efficiently even if that means letting you go at the end.

It’s nice as a way to kill time though, like a mobile game, but more useful.

It works

One year into it and I can say for sure that it works.

I finished the third chapter in Russian and I think in one more year I will finish the remaining two. At the present level I can carry on an easy conversation, I can slowly read the news and I recently finished a very short story called “Three Bears” by Lev Tolstoi.

I’ve tried other apps too and even some manuals. However, I found that for me this is the most fun and easy way to learn it.
I’m waking up each day at 4:30 and from here to 5:30 or 6 I learn Russian. Sometimes in weekends I learn more.
I’ve probably missed less than 5 days of learning in a year.

I’m planing to finish the course and from there to keep learning by reading books. Can’t wait to do that!

IMPORTANT
I have a ton of friends on duolingo and all of them failed at learning a language. And that’s because they don’t put the hours in.
Learning a language is a long distance and time consuming task.
Don’t do it if you don’t have something to keep you motivated on the long run.
If you are ready for years of learning than be consistent and the results will come. Make it a habit, like brushing your teeth and you’ll find fun and joy in learning. :-)
