It takes 6 hours to get my hearts back and I don’t shan’t to wait that long
I bought a subscription to PLUS just bc I love this app so much. I knew that the PLUS features weren’t that great but I was OK with just giving the app some money. I had only meant to do the one month subscription but it automatically signed me up for the 1 year without my knowledge. So now I’m out $80 for a worthless (non refundable) upgrade that’s not really any different from the free version.
I have learned a lot from this site and my Spanish has improved a lot more since I have started using this app. I recommend for those trying to learn a new language(or improving a currently used language).
Duolingo would be a fun way to learn a new language if it did have so many errors. There are many times the database does not include a variation of a correct answer. This is exasperating as 5 “mistakes” kick you off the app for a day. What’s even worse is that in many cases the mistakes are so frequent that instead of learning the language you are really learning how to adjust to their mistakes. The voice recognition is also spotty. Meh
It will accept random English words that are totally wrong as correct in some cases. In other cases, it won’t even recognize 80% of the words I speak. This entire feature of the app is completely broken.
I am learning 3 languages and I am having a lot of fun!
no complaints at all
I’ve been using Duolingo for years now, but haven’t gained fluency in any language because I was kinda lazy. However, I still managed to learn different writing systems and learned conversational languages. I’ve started being more serious about learning languages, and there are a few suggestions I’d like to give since I’m using the IPad app. Firstly, I wish the iPad app had the community center like the iPhone and desktop version have. Sometimes it’s really helpful to ask a question when you don’t understand something and have someone give you an answer. It’d be great if you added that. Also, I think it would be super helpful if there was some sort of in-app dictionary that stored all of the words you learned so far. I’d like to go back and study a few words I may have forgotten or am having trouble with. This would a very great addition to the app. Overall, it’s a great app, but I’ll give it a five star rating once these suggestions go into play. Thank youuuu Duolingo team!
Hitting 98%-100% fluency scores on practice and “level up”s only to be hammered with a 5% accuracy on master tests is a clear indication of poor lessons. The mastery test sentence complexity is far more advanced (both in structure and vocabulary) than the lessons.
