Editors’ Choice

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!

itlaina and french

Great even if you have the basics

This app is truly great. I did the basics for French in school and therefore had a good base to work off of when starting which can seem quite boring when starting off but basics are the foundation of a language, the way the app kind of bombards you with everything in each level when it comes to using the language you come to appreciate it.
I would like to see an option to choose saying that you have some knowledge in the language when choosing one just in case but the option to go back should definitely remain.
I liked the previous versions though, when you could see if you’re “up to date” on each section, but the levels do seem to offer something in that you can always improve even on the most basic levels.

Literally only 2 criticisms, I would like to delete a language and would like the option to stop daily reminders. I don’t like the sad owl


Afrikaans Please!

I’m highly impressed in what this app has done across the world! Many of my friends have used this app to their benefit when moving over seas! This is a great way to learn a language spoken in a big number! I would only ask for one thing... That the duo team would please add Afrikaans on duo, for many of my friends, wanting to learn the language (in South Africa), don’t have Afrikaans on duo to learn. Many just resort to Dutch because they say it is similar enough but the further they’ve studied the more complications they’ve come across.
I hope you take this point into consideration!
