To wrap this review up, I would say that as with most other things in life, Duolingo has some good and bad sides to it. In retrospect, what I liked the most about the app is its ease of use on the go and the addictive elements to it that turn in into sort of a game. I’d like to see such elements expanded in future versions of the app, which I think would make Duolingo a lot better.
However, because of the downsides I’ve outlined above, I’ll be honest and say that I will probably not make extensive use of Duolingo in the future. I simply find audio methods such as Pimsleur to be more effective while on the go, with others such as Assimil or Teach yourself better when at home or in a café. Of course, these latter are not free, but time does have a cost too. Free always has an appeal, but free also comes with a price, be it your time, efficiency, or else.

As language learning apps go, Duolingo is a fantastic option that's completely free, but don't expect it to help you become completely fluent.

This is the most productive means of procrastination I’ve ever discovered. The short lesson blocks are painless and peppy, and reaching the next level (and then the level after that) becomes addictive. I’ve lost track of time as I’ve buzzed through tutorials on Spanish conjunctions and prepositions. A co-worker likes to crank out French modules on his subway commute. One friend confided that she’s stayed up for hours past her bedtime learning German — ja, this Fräulein simply can’t put Duolingo down. As I recall, these are not the sorts of giddy emotions that were stirred in Mrs. Gonnerman’s 10th-grade French AP class.
