Auto-renewal may be turned off at any time by going to your settings in the iTunes Store after purchase.
If you don’t choose to purchase Duolingo Plus, you can simply continue using Duolingo for free. Current Duolingo Plus subscription price starts at $9.99 USD/month. Prices are in U.S. dollars, may vary in countries other than the U.S. and are subject to change without notice.
Two new feature alerts:
1. Hear, hear! We've added a brand-new "listen-and-tap" exercise type for all courses, where you listen to a phrase and then tap the corresponding words from the word bank below. These exercises will be shown at earlier levels of each course so you can get a head start on improving your listening comprehension skills.
2. We’ve got some ’splainin' to do - you asked for more explanation around grammar and pronunciation, so we’re adding exactly that! Tap the new Tips icon next to certain skills to get in-depth explanations of key concepts. We’ll be adding more every week, starting with our Spanish, French and Chinese courses.

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!
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.
Practice contains very repetitive items
I use it every day because I want to learn German, but the practice section contains same exercises over and over again.
I think that would be very helpful to have exercises from all the sections completed and the exercises not to be repetitive. Do “salz, bitte” (and many other phrases and words) a million time, doesn’t help me to practice German.
The feedback section doesn’t work as long as I have sent them the above feedback several times and nothing happened so far; it’s kind of frustrating.
I think that seeing advertising every time I finish a section, it is again frustrating mainly due to the fact that actually I cannot practice German as it would be helpful.
Should rather focus the practice section on building phrases rather than just translate words, because you learn words at every section.
