Duolingo App Review
With Duolingo there are different levels which you have to progress through. You can skip through the levels by successfully completing tests (“checkpoints”) but if you fail them then you are ‘locked’ into completing each level until you reach the end of the course.
1. Addictive – Duolingo has the addictive element similar to playing a video game and moving up the various levels. This made me want to come back and ‘complete’ the different levels so motivation to keep going every day using the app was not a problem at all. Several friends also confirmed they also experienced this ‘addictive’ trait to the app.
1. Unnatural – There are no natural conversations in the app so you are not exposed to the rhythm of the language
So would I recommend using Duolingo?
