Duolingo: language lessons Pros and Cons

2. The learning process is professionally designed by linguistic experts with scientific and pedagogy basis.

3. The interface and app design are extremely user-friendly with simple and vivid color scheme and cute characters and icons. It is easy to navigate through the tabs and sections with no complications.

4. The learning sessions are short-and-sweet but highly efficient. It is very ideal for beginners and learners with short attention span.

Cons:

1. All most all of the language courses are catering to English-speaking users (with only three exceptions), which means non-English speakers or users with limited English ability may benefit less from the app.

Duolingo: language lessons Reviews

Duolingo: language lessons meets the expectations for its long-standing high popularity and remarks. It is by far the most easy-to-follow education app for language learning in my opinion. First, it is completely free even though it offers a premium version that charges. Yet Duolingo Plus does not block essential learning contents from regular users, or offer exclusively necessary features without which learners would learn less. Plus, the free version often offers time-limited free trials for Duolingo Plus throughout the learning progress, which helps users to know better about the premium features before they make purchase decisions. More importantly, what makes Duolingo successful is its entertaining feature, which makes language learning less intimidating and much more approachable for zero-level beginners. By unlocking each skill trees and pass through each checkpoint, users can improve while having the fun of playing games. At the same time, the learning method is time-tested with linguistics basis, which makes sure your time is well-spent and effectively-spent on Duolingo app. Its game-like design can hardly make learners notice the grinding practice of vocabularies, grammars and phrases; instead, it uses various fun incentives and rewards to encourage a bite-size yet long-term oriented learning habit.


Indeed, like many other online-language apps, the most obvious limitation is the real systemic coverage of grammar and language application, where more intensive and extensive training are necessary. Even though Duolingo is constantly trying to incorporate more comprehensive and challenging contents for advanced learners, sometimes it is still hard to cater to learners of all levels. That being said, I do not think this is necessarily a downside for this app, because each app should have its own unique focus and target user groups. Duolingo is absolutely an ideal and reliable option for beginners and it does not need to do everything and go everywhere to please more advanced users, who in my opinion, should seek other approaches to improve in the first place.
