Duolingo is the free science-based language education platform selected by Apple as iPhone App of the Year 2013, by Google as Best of the Best for Android 2013, and by TechCrunch as Best Education Startup.

It was created by crowdsourcing pioneer Luis von Ahn, PhD, and Severin Hacker, PhD.

With over 38 million users, Duolingo has organically become the most popular way to learn languages online in only 2 years.

In a recent independent study, professors from the City University of New York (CUNY) and the University of South Carolina found that when using Duolingo for 34 hours, students learn the equivalent of one university semester of language instruction.

If you’re looking to converse on vacation or simply watch a foreign movie without the subtitles, Duolingo can help!
I’d always loved languages in my school days. As a native English speaker I also studied French, German and Spanish, but that was eight years ago and I’m a little out of practise.

Ready to take on a new challenge, I signed up to Duolingo. Through following the simple system, which utilises photos, audio and written text, my previous knowledge came flooding back and I quickly began to level up in my selected languages. I think it’s great that you cannot progress until you’ve proven your competence in the current subject, often revising sentences several times to ensure maximum retention.

More recently, Duolingo added Danish to their repertoire. I’m a huge fan of Danish television shows (and their talented, attractive stars, but I digress), and jumped at the opportunity to learn the language for myself. I’m currently at level four (out of a possible twenty five) and love building up XP, almost like a game. Learning feels effortless and rewarding, just as it should.

With 9 languages currently available to learn and more in the works, Duolingo is definitely a site to keep an eye on and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone, whether you’re new to languages or an experienced polyglot.

Strange decision to use Comic Sans as the font for the titles of the website headings.

I could not find a way to navigate away from the homepage to any deeper links with more information. One would expect that the left skyscraper section would be hotlinked to more examples.

Born as a clickbait, arbitrage website completely devoid of any substance or content - it somehow took that concept and made it worse.

A heavily biased so-called "news" resource - HuffPo is hypocritical in nearly every possible aspect. It preaches equality and diversity, and yet it's boardroom is nearly completely composed of white women. It claims to be strongly for diversity, and yet it practices no diversity of thought whatso...
