What's New in Version 5.1.3
Bug fixes and performance improvements.
Pretty solid app
I've been using this app off and on for awhile now. And actually the previous version didn't work well for me. It was too easy to binge and pass a bunch of levels and then drop it for awhile and sure with the new update I wasn't sure about the idea of health and more ads. Thinking I would have to purchase health or wait a long time to refill it (which you can do) but actually by going back and doing old levels you can earn your health back. Making you practice old stuff that might not of. It's a good method of encouraging practice makes perfect. And sure the ads are a little annoying but they keep the app free. Making it totally worth it. It's a great app for students who need the practice or people who are beginning to lose their skills. If you're a newcomer to a language I recommend you get tinycards which another free app by the same people. It will help introduce you to the vocab one word at a time so you can practice one word and not a whole sentence. The two apps work great together. I've been speaking French for five years now but I stopped taking lessons and this has really worked as a good supplement to my other studies. Which is one thing to keep in common this app will not make you fluent and no app will. This is only a supplement to real life experience.
Great supplementary language learning tool!
I use Duolingo supplementary to my language courses, and I think it's great! Most people seem to think they can learn a new language just with duolingo and that's impossible, anyone who is bilingual will tell you the only true way to learn a new language is through immersion. That's simply not what duolingo is trying to do. Duolingo is a memorization tool and should only be used for that purpose, although being able to hear correct pronunciation is key to picking up a new language as well. You have to be able to train your ears to understand foreign pronunciation before you will ever be able to pick up a new language. I use this app and TinyCards to help me remember vocabulary and also help me work on my pronunciation, because you can repeatedly tap a word and have it read out to you. I love it for these two reasons. Hopefully with the next update they are able to flesh out some better grammar lessons, it's one thing to be shown it but some better explanations/reminders would be helpful!
I get it but give us another way!
Update: After getting the most recent update, I realized that you know what to charge us 10$ per month to get basically access to more than one lesson per day (unless you're the smartest person on earth). This is not cool guys. Heck I'll pay 5 or 10 dollars period! To get this permanently but no way per month. I can get a Netflix subscription for that! The fact that you added that was because you heard the outcry over this. But this is even worse!
Ok guys I get it, you need to make money, but this isn't the way. When you added the ads I understood, y'all needed to make some money. But the health bar NEEDS to go! And if you can't do that, you need to give us the option to pay (to support you) and get that option out of here! It makes learning languages impossible now. You guys used to be great, you were one of the, if not the BEST app on the App Store! Now I can't even touch this app! I understand that you guys need to make money, but this ISNT IT! Please, here the communities cries and stop this madness I wish y'all the best of luck in finding a way to make money and I hope y'all stay true to the mission of Duolingo, "the best place to learn a language!"
