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.

Pros:

How easy to use and accessible it is

Cons:

The app is no where near as good as the website version in terms of detail or features

Fond of everything new!
Highly recommend! Super friendly with beginners. If you are totally new to a language, try Duolingo! Have been using over 6 months and it helped me a lot with my Italian learning. The courses are funny and of practical usage! It's like playing a game while in learning new vocabulary. Will continue to use!!! 5 stars!!!

Love tech, especially fitness tech!

Great app for learning the basics but they need to add European portuguese!

Pros:

Easy to use, gamified, fun

Cons:

Not enough content, easy to complete language without actually knowing much, no European Portuguese option

@larry_hall They won't add European Portuguese, as they said they will only add a dialect for a language. Sorry. What do you call "not enough content"?

It's such a great product and i recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning a new language.

Pros:

The app is amazing and just very easy to use

Cons:

Once you get to the end, there are no new challenges

@jadesola Try doing the exercices while using the forum sentence each time, there is great challenges in answering other people questions about the language.
Lost in the digital world.

Duolingo is great to quickly learn the basics of a language. However, you will need another app or service if you want to learn in deep.

Pros:

It´s very easy and user friendly

Cons:

It is just for learning a few things.

Using Doulingo for a long time. It really helped me to improve my French. Recently began to study Swedish there. It helps to improve listening, writing and speaking skills at the same time. Love the approach to study, that's really funny and easy. You just make fun and the result is a new skill.

Pros:

Fun to use, easy and helpful, well-featured but not overweight

Cons:

love computer version more

@deleted-1752054 No, it's not great for speaking and writing skills. Writing = write your own sentences I mean. But it's great for many things.
The reason I do not like this app is ,because what it teaches you is something you would never say in a conversation like"she is a woman" know one would ever say that! also when you look up duolingo and look at the images it show's very creepy photos, some of them are memes but some of them look real! So that is why I disapprove of this app.

Did somebody get an answer, ever, from Duolingo when facing a technical issue? On earth.

I'm trying Duolingo to get up to speed with Japanese, and I'm really enjoying this way of learning - it's time efficient and visually pleasing. For the moment I'm using the free version. If I had to suggest a feature, I would say showing the stroke directions for drawing the ideograms, and have tests for that too (maybe it's an advanced feature I haven't reached yet).
One among many modern-day web wizards.
Best tool for picking up basic Vietnamese. Great app. It would be cool if the app displayed more features as you progressed (like when you're 50% done, maybe add a feature to add your own questions).
