- If you're looking for a quick and easy way to learn new languages, it doesn't get better than Duolingo. The app/website is extremely easy to use, very very intuitive.In my opinion, you won't be able to actually learn a language only by using Duolingo, but it can definitely HELP you learn and improve. I've combined real class courses with Duolingo and the results were great. Now I can understand and speak basic Chinese.
My reading and listening skills have improved so much since using Duolingo, I couldn't recommend it more. I'm not naive in thinking it will make it fluent as it's not the best for speaking skills but has vastly helped me improve and build up my language confidence.
I listed "gem restrictions" because I would like to use it without limitations, but I understand that it is part of their business model.
