About Duolingo

Duolingo is a learning management system that helps schools offer bite-sized learning modules to teach speaking and reading different languages including Spanish, French, Italian, German, French, and English. The platform offers gamified lessons, which enable trainees to learn and incorporate grammar and vocabulary skills.

Teachers can define classroom instructions, track students’ progress against learning goals, and share personalized feedback on a unified interface. Duolingo offers iOS and Android mobile applications, allowing teams to download multiple training lessons and view them in offline mode. Students can also reset languages in profiles and follow or block team members on a centralized dashboard.

Duolingo lets trainers login via Facebook and Google credentials and manage parental controls. Learners can also compete with other trainees, track scores via leaderboards in real-time, and access Duolingo stories to attempt exercises based on reading and listening comprehension.

The Best Language Learning App I Have Ever Experienced So Far!

I like that it is a very efficient way to learn a new language. I also like how it is gamified so that it makes it more fun and engaging. Besides, I can enroll in more than one language at a time and keep practicing simultaneously. It has a learning streak which is like if you don't practice for a few days in a row then your progress will go back to down level and you have to start again from the past although you can freeze the streak a few times. Overall it really helped a lot in learning the basics of language.

Pros

There are many things I like about the Duolingo language learning software. Firstly, it is free which makes it accessible to everyone. Secondly, it is very user-friendly and you can learn at your own pace. Finally, it provides a great way to learn a new language or brush up on your existing language skills. I like that Duolingo offers a variety of languages to choose from. I also appreciate the fact that it uses a game-like format to make language learning fun and engaging.

Cons

Every product comes with a con but to be frank I didn't find any major cons for the app. Hence it is really enjoyable. But sometimes the repetitive tests may seem boring for the users as the app sometimes brings up the same lessons again and again. The learning process is a bit slow.

Alternatives Considered

ELSA Speak

Reasons for Switching to Duolingo

Elsa Speak doesn't offer gamification representation which is not enjoyable. On the other hand, Duolingo made the whole learning process a game so no matter how old the age of a person is, can easily adapt and enjoy Duolingo for learning the language.

I like the app I use it daily they encourage you to study every day with notifications and Competitions ,so I recommended people to use it

Pros

you can choose more than one language to learn at the same time ,and you can find all the language approximately ,so you can learn languages you can't find in internet ,and guess what all of this for free ,the most thing that I really love about this app is you can Compete with other people from different countries and that cheers you up to learn more ,and they give you many Strategies to teach you listening writing speaking it is lovely app I believe.

Cons

the one thing that I didn't like about this app ,The language is not strong enough I mean there is some problem in sentence formation ,I hope they improve this side of it.

Addictive and fun!

It's very fun, very modern. The paid subscription Super Duolingo is super affordable as well, but if you can stand ads, you are quite okay with the free version as well. I cannot imagine a better platform to learn a new language on the go, on your phone, tabler, or your PC's browser. Do not expect you to be fluent in a week or a month, but every bit helps. Be patient, enjoy the cute experience and check the Klingon language as well.

Pros

Learning languages with Duolingo sure is fun. I have used it for so many years to learn Czech and Japanese. From the cute interface and animations to the option to draw Japanese symbols on the phone screen, Duolingo offers a free and accessible way for anyone to learn new languages.
With their paid Super Duolingo plan, you can get rid of the annoying advertisements - I am one of those impatient people who don't like ads, have unlimited hearts, and you can also have a family plan where you can share the service with your loved ones at a very reasonable price. You can pretty much learn every major language plus some very "exotic" ones such as - Klingon(!!) and High Valyrian (!!!), both very important and useful in our daily lives. I am hoping for Duolingo also to add the option for us to learn Slovenian in the future. It's one of the less used languages but very dear to my heart.
The daily quests and the monthly challenges are fun as well and a reason for competitive users to log in more often and do their "daily grind." Without you realizing it, you will learn so many new words by simply spending 15 min per day, or an hour like me.

Cons

I will be honest - since I am a very competitive person, I spend a lot of time grinding for experience (XP) just so I can beat other users and advance in the leagues. Currently, I am in the Sapphire League, but I feel like giving up for a while because the competitive side of me blocks the one that wants to actually learn the language. Maybe don't make the competition and advancing into a higher league that tough?

Story Reading never gets old for language learners

Reviewed on 01/11/2022

Pros

This software has a lot of good features but the best part is the story module obviously. The level of language is getting complicated very smoothly and the complexity of the sentences doesn´t head off the reader. The content helps the reader to find out unknown words in a logical way. besides, its up-to-date context including social awareness is priceless for users that trying to be visible in life.

Cons

The beginner level of the software does not actually start from scratch. If you have no idea about the alphabet of the language that you want to learn, it does not help your learning adventure. It stresses general expressions.

Very good, I learned the Korean language from scratch, and I already have the ability to handle the language in an intermediate way by dedicating time to it daily, it is very entertaining.

Pros

It is a very entertaining and dynamic application to learn. It helps a lot to have repetitive activities as it generates long-term learning. It has many languages ​​to choose from!

Cons

You have to pay a certain amount of money, although it is not expensive, in order to get more stages and rankings.
