Best app on my phone

I dumped Facebook and instead of browsing nonsense when I have a free moment, I pickkup Duolingo. I've been using it for about over a year now. It's been hugely helpful in learning Spanish, and now I'm doing German. It's amazing what you can learn in just a few moments a day, and during short periods of down time when you might otherwise just be wasting your time in the echo chambers of social media. Do yourself a favor and learn a new language or two. Even if you don't become fluent, it's very rewarding and great brain excercise.

The app itself is well done and I enjoy using it.

Good but has bugs

I'm glad they added Japanese, it works perfectly. But when I click on the sound, it doesn't sound right to the options or they sound like another option but it's wrong. And the Spanish lessons keep messing up with my progress. I'll complete all the lessons and the bubble with be gold, I close the app or change to a different lesson and it wipes the last lesson I did and takes away the gold. Sometimes multiple at a time. Last time it did it to 4 of my gold bubbles and I'm kinda mad because I won't be able to progress without their completion.

No settings option?

I think this app is great for daily practice that helps a new language sink deeper into one’s memory. My problem is that the account originally set up using my email was for my daughter. Now that I am the one using the app, I can’t change the settings to convert my goal to minutes or update any preferences. Seems a little odd that there would be no option to restart a language; my daughter hasn’t used it in over 2 years.
