    UPDATE 4/26/18: Please, please, please allow us to turn off the "type your answer in Japanese" questions you recently added! It would be fine if the translations you get when you tap an English word you don't know was the word you're looking for, but often it is not, and sometimes it is only the kanji and not the kana, so you can't learn how to pronounce the word and type it correctly if you don't already know it! I have a streak of nearly a year learning Japanese with Duolingo, but I can't keep going on in this state. UPDATE 2017: I'm on a 179 day streak of learning Japanese with this app. At this point, my main complaint is that on some lessons - especially more advanced ones - when you are asked to translate an English word to Japanese, tapping the word will show you several Japanese translations, but not the word you need! This makes learning a new word needlessly difficult. If anything has made me want to give up, it is this issue. ORIGINAL REVIEW: However, it only teaches through repetition and rote memorization. Those are valuable tools, but when I hit certain phrases that stump me every time, it's because Duolingo doesn't teach me WHY the answer is correct. I use Duolingo to learn Japanese. Some simple grammar lessons would be very helpful. As it is, I have to supplement this app with another, such as the fantastic Human Japanese.

    All of a sudden the print is so tiny, I can barely see the words. Please increase the font.

    I have had this app for years and I absolutely love it. It’s helpful and I can forget about it for a few weeks and pick back up where I left off. The only thing is I’m not really happy with is the new update. Can y’all please bring back the percent fluency!? That was what made me felt like I was making actual progress.

    Traveling to Israel - want to learn a few common phrases - pronunciation. This is not the app for that. You stay out wth a word and 4 pictures - you choose the pic that represents the word. Then next it asks you to translate a sentence ?! I do not even know the alphabet. Not an app for travelers.
  • Hate the new version of Duolingo

    By Grla_99
    It’s impossible to keep track of where you are and whether o not you are meeting your goals. Cute graphics take up too much screen real estate and add nothing to understanding (how does a cartoon dolphin popping his head above water help to illustrate “He is returning to Spain”?)
  • Duolingo это супер!

  • Update horrible

    I loved Duolingo until the recent update. I hate how you can’t test out of what you know now. It wastes my time now. Also it used to show your fluency percent and I miss it.
  • Great tool

  • No audio for 9/10ths of the Vietnamese first lesson

    By ChefAbram
    I downloaded this to learn Vietnamese to communicate with my coworkers that are Vietnamese, and on the first lesson all of the audio that’s supposed to help me understand pronunciation doesn’t play, even after tapping the megaphone icon. Only very few play the audio. How am I supposed to learn if I can’t even read in my head the words because I’m not being taught the pronunciation
  • New update frustration

    New update is very frustrating, I preferred the prior version. I don’t like the whole health bar or amount it costs to refill it. Every time I play I am more concerned with not losing health than actually learning the language, which wasn’t the case before the update. I really enjoyed the app and have played it every day for almost 2 years but this new update is making me consider other language learning apps. It feels like the app designers are pressuring me to spend money rather than helping me learn a new language. With a health bar that takes 5 hours to refill 1 bar, a 350 cost to refill the health bar, and suggestions to buy gems from the game every time I use the app, I feel pressured to spend actual money in order to learn and use the app. Luckily I played every day and saved enough coins during my 2 years of playing that I can afford to spend some gems, I can’t get over the frustrating new update. Hopefully a new update comes out that lets the user make mistakes without worrying about health. Only then do I think the app can achieve what I believe is its goal, which is to help users learn a new language. If the health bar continues then it’s clear money is the motive as they say.
