Duolingo

Last spring I read about the language learning app, Duolingo, on another site and decided to check it out.  257 consecutive days later, I am still with it.  



It started with the basics - hiragana, individual characters.  You have the option of testing out of things you think you already know and you can always go back and practice sections when you want.  I'm learning vocabulary, grammar, and even some kanji.  I look forward to doing it every day, it's fun.  Here are a few examples:












I this one seemed appropriate!





If you are trying to learn a language, you might want to check out Duolingo.

  1. I love this app. I'm using it right now to learn Turkish and it's awesome. I haven't been using it as long as you have but it's going pretty good.
    I'm learning so much I just hope I'm able to understand what everyone around me is saying when I get to Turkey :) What the app is really missing is a way to practice speaking words.

  5. I'm glad you're getting use out of duolingo! I had heard that it was not-so-great for Asian languages so they must have fixed it. I am currently using Lingodeer but it is not great for learning kanji (I learn by writing not just seeing, blah).

  8. Oh, Duolingo does Kanji now? It didn't at all when I checked it out some time ago and that's what drove me away, but I might give it another go!
