Description

This time it’s not a game but a website and app I am reviewing. Duolingo is a way to learn a new language. It’s an educational tool that uses many forms of gamification. Gamification is adding game elements to things that are not games. It can take many forms but it makes it more fun and it motivates you as well.

 

Duolingo is available in 21 languages and depending on the language you speak, you can learn up to 26 new languages. You can learn English from all 21 languages. They also have a project where the community makes new courses people can do. For example people who speak German and Spanish are making a course in German to learn Spanish.

 

The fact that it’s not only a website but also an app works very well since the best way to learn is to practice every day. They remind you every day to practice depending on what level of coaching you select. You can also earn experience points and level up. You can even earn some cool badges and make friends. You can also earn currency and unlock new stuff.

 

Duolingo is not just typing words, sometimes you will have to listen, select a word or even speak. This brings some variation and depth in the learning process. Together with the gamification elements Duolingo makes for a good way to learn a new language or brush up on others.

  • Duolino is in my view a great way to learn a new language or brush up on some other ones. The assignments are clear and easy to perform which is why it doesn’t cost much effort to do. You also progress pretty quickly which gives a great rewarding feeling while playing. The combination of daily practice and the forms of gamification keeps you. If you want to learn a new language Duolingo is for you. it doesn’t matter whether you use the website or app, they both work great.
