Best language app by far!! I think the app is very successful in giving a step-by-step breakdown of a language. It's so addicting that I have decided to learn more than one language at once. My only complaint is that Russian isn't available to learn, I wish more languages were available.
However, the app is ineffective in teaching how to actually speak a language and pronounce words, it's more for learning how to read and write. The microphone option is poor and ineffective. Also I need to deselect some of the languages that I accidentally added. Lastly, I think a section on polite words would be very useful, along with more greetings.
If I may, I suggest a section on learning the alphabet, how to pronounce the letters. And using that to spell out words on your own!
Best aplication ever
So ive used duolingo for a while now, trying to learn french. However due to lack of attention on my part i haven't been doing great. That is until this month of July where i started giving it another try. And Wow!! I can't believe i missed out on so much. The app is very interacting, makes you keep coming back, and makes you want to practice over and over even skills you already know from the language. I think that at this rate, by the end of the month i'll be able to fully comprehend, write, read and speak the french language (atleast at a basic stage), and this is all thanks to this Simple, plus Free Amazing App. IMO: this is a Must on every IOS device.
So, I've been trying to learn French with this app and it's really good for that, but I've recently decided that I wanted to not only do English-French but French-English as well. (If you know it both ways the you must know it, right?) The only problem with doing this is that you have separate tabs for English orientated lesson etc, so I have to go through a lot of menu choices just to switch. All I'm asking, if it's not too much, is to have a separate tab for all active lessons. (For the person who is learning multiple languages, let's say English, French, and Spanish, but find it easier to do English-French, and the French-Spanish. Thank you for your consideration.
