Duolingo - Language Lessons Pros
✓ DuolingoI really enjoy Duolingo. Recently I started using it from my new iPad, rather than smartphone. I really found it tough to adjust to having a limited number of “hearts”, and having to make them last for two languages! It would be so much easier to have five hearts for each language! The other thing I miss from learning from my phone is the frequent practice of certain vowel sounds with French. I found this practice very valuable. Really, the only thing that keeps me from going back to Duolingo via my cellphone, is that my eyesight isn’t good enough. I am not really into the competitive aspect of Duolingo, probably also because of my age. I just do as well as I can because I enjoy it, and don’t bother to get into all the ways I could improve, as I am doing the best I can. Life gets in the way at times, and I am certainly not concerned with dropping back from such and such a league! Life is precious, and to be enjoyed while we still have it..Version: 6.97.2
✓ Health systemThe listening exercises using pre entered words have words missing from the selection on the online version of Duolingo. Don’t like the health system. I am finding it hard to learn from the mistakes I make if the iOS system locks me out for making silly typing mistakes. As someone with dyslexia I feel let down by the app. Memrise is now much better than Duolingo and is becoming the go to app. Have stopped using Duolingo because of the health system making getting through lessons too hard. Obviously, the Duolingo team are punishing their learners through the health system and trying to bully them into paying for their service. No other language learning/teacher app/service would kick out it’s users from a lesson for making errors. Don’t use the app. If you want to use Duolingo use the online service. I Ding think they care that they are undermining our confidence in language learning through the health system..Version: 6.92.0
Duolingo - Language Lessons Cons
✗ Scammed me £78/$101After being offered the two week free subscription I comprehensively checked the subscription details, it said that after the two weeks you would have to manually renew your subscription and choose between the 1 month, 6 month and 1 year options. Yesterday I was charged £78 as not only did it automatically renew my subscription, but it automatically chose the most expensive option, which completely contradicted what I was told about manual renewal. In a rush to get the refund I was entitled to, I applied through apples refund system as an unwanted subscription, but shortly after this I checked the Duolingo website to see if I could find a number to call to ensure my refund request went through. I found a page that told me that if I hadn’t cancelled the subscription before appealing for a refund, I would not get one. This was not clear enough before the fact and I did not cancel it before appealing as I didn’t want to confuse apples system into thinking I never payed anything. This means I most likely will never receive a refund even though it has not even been 48 hours since my 1 year subscription has begun. Although I do appreciate this app as a very useful tool in learning new languages, I believe the way they conduct business is very poor and borderline scammer esc. I’d like my refund..Version: 6.77.0
✗ Money grubbing new ownersUpdate: Just when you think it couldn’t get worse...it finds a way! So they have taken the health system to be even more punishing. One of the few learning activities they wouldn’t take hearts away for before was a matching exercise. This made sense as it didn’t rely on clicking a “check” button. Today, I accidentally clicked on a card I didn’t mean to, and poof! One heart of 5 down. They claim that this is to prevent rushing through the material, but let’s be honest, it’s a “pain point “ to try and get users to pay for their “plus” membership. I am considering paying for my lessons, but it sure as hell won’t be Duolingo with their sneaky, underhanded tactics. From before: Studying Japanese, used to have no health bar, that changed without warning. Get rid of that health bar. Less likely to take risks to test myself now. Got rid of my ingots, for blue gems, did not feel like an equivalent exchange. I repeat, get rid of health bar. Also I would consider paying for subscription if it were more reasonably priced. Used to love Duolingo, now sorely disappointed..Version: 6.57.0
