    I started Duolingo months ago. I loved it. I was picking up Spanish really well. Then my phone battery went out for over a month. When I finally get back to my lessons the whole format changed. Now if I make mistakes I lose lives and if I lose enough the lesson ends. Why would they put such an impedance feature in? Several month later now and I am still very far from catching up to where I once was. Also each lesson category has changed the progress indications. It used to be like four lessons and you’re done and move on. Now I don’t know what they are trying to tell me.
  • Now that's a five star chick!

    I’ve been using Duolingo for a while now, but recently I’ve gotten REALLY into it. I’ve got a streak of 52, though there are people with 2,000+, so I’m not quite there yet. I do still love this app, but as I’ve been branching off a bit and trying new languages outside of Spanish, I’ve noticed something- the shops are all different! Some of them use the red lingots, while others use blue; some have different outfits while others have none; there are health shields and streak freezes and all that jazz, but not every shop is the same! I think there should be a uniform currency, and all the shops should offer the same things so that you can still use health shields if you’re learning Hungarian, different suits in Spanish, etc. Another thing I’d love to see is a final Spanish skill that you can buy. So far you can buy the Flirting skill or the Idioms skill, but the third slot is just sitting there, empty and sad. Also to go along with the first point, there should be lessons like that for more languages. There’s also the issue of languages with different alphabets. I’ve been trying hard to learn Russian, but the alphabet is really tricky! I feel as if there should be a way to get comfortable with the alphabet, as it would make learning some of those languages so much easier, since you can pronounce them just by seeing them. I think this also goes for pronunciation, especially with languages like French. I know you’re supposed to use other resources alongside Duolingo, but I think you could definitely help a lot of people that way. Finally, I feel as if the hearts system should be done away with. It’s discouraging when you’re on a really tough lesson and you have to keep starting over because you can only get five wrong. On a more positive note, I have been loving some of the recent updates! The crown system imo isn’t quite as good as the previous, but the new “test out of skill” function has helped me so much, since I don’t have to go through the same sentences so much to get gold (I’m a bit of a perfectionist). There’s also the new skills in Spanish, which did actually provide me with a bit more content and helped to strengthen different areas. I do think some of the existing skills could use a touch-up though, especially in Spanish (It would help if you at least helped us with all the new tenses a but, and spread them a bit further out too). I’ve also enjoyed the clubs feature, since I can get encouragement and practice with other people without leaving the app. The interactive exercises in the club feed are helpful, too. I wonder where the chat bots went, though? They just kind of disappeared around when clubs were introduced. Thank you guys so much for doing what you do, and I hope you consider some of the aforementioned maintenance and suggestions, if not all of them. I’ll be looking forward to future updates!

    Really great program. I am learning so much quicker using verbal, written & audible repetition. I also like that I can do it is short spurts as I have time.
  • Extremely amazing and definitely recommended!!

    This app is very well designed. It has a wide variety of languages to choose from and learn step-by-step. It starts of with simple words, such as I and you, then branches out to different categories like food or family. It is easy to navigate and an overall amazing app. There isn’t one flaw in it and I recommend you get this for all ages!
  • Issue with Speech Recognition

    October 17, 2016 Bots appear on my iPod but not iPad. However, they still don't work on my iPod. The send button doesn't function at all. July 16, 2018 I'm sad bots are gone. Sigh. Anyways, whenever you test pronunciation, in order to pass all you have to do is tap the button a few times rapidly and it'll think you said the phrase. This issue has existed ever since this feature was introduced. It would be nice if this glitch went away.
