"Learning languages has never been this fun"

Reviewed by / Jun 07, 2013

This is the official Android app of the well-known language learning web platform

Duolingo is quite popular on the web. For a long time, thousands (millions?) of users have followed its method to improve their language skills. Now, the service is also available from mobile devices which is aimed to make even easier a daily routine for language learning.

Just in case you haven't one, you need to create an account in Duolingo to gain access. You can do it from the app in a few steps. After that, you'll get to Duolingo's dashboard that will guide you from the basics to the advanced level of the language you choose to learn. By now, you can learn
Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, and English. Totally free. Doesn't it sound awesome?

Duolingo features translation, listening, sorting and vocabulary exercises and a final test to check if you've got the concepts. Lessons are themed in order to help you learn vocabulary in a comprehensive way. In addition, grammar difficulty increases gradually which guarantees no one is left behind. Anyway, lessons can be repeated as many times as you want and, since exercises are randomly generated, you'll always be challenged until the concepts are reinforced. Learn at your own pace.

If you find basics too easy, you can always jump to a "shortcut test". If you pass it, previous lessons will be unlocked and you will be able to start advanced levels. Anyway, users with medium-advanced language skills won't find it extremely difficult. Think Duolingo as the entrance gate to a new language instead of a service to get Proficiency level.

    You can't change your picture or anything like that? Also if you sign in with Google it just puts in your full name and you can't change it either. Kinda lame. Update: crashes at listening questions

    An absolutely fantastic app for learning another language. The progression makes sense, and the correction messages are actually helpful.

    I used to use Rosetta Stone but this is so much more user friendly, setting it up like a game makes it competitive among my friends which encourages more learning! I love it.
