HOW IT WORKS: The App offers you daily lessons which include a variety of speaking, listening, translation and multiple choice questions. You are instantly graded and even if you miss a question, you'll quickly be shown how to improve. Duolingo motivates you to stay on track by recording how many days in a row you spend learning a language. It offers you a very friendly way to learn a language with pictures and hints so you never get bored or frustrated.

In summary, I have been using this app for a while now to learn the Spanish language and I must tell you it has been very helpful. The intuitive lessons make it easier for me to learn and never get bored. This is a recommended app for anyone who wants to learn a new language but is always busy or is on a budget. Spending 10mins daily and you can learn the language of your dreams for free. You can download it for Android, iOS, Windows Phone or from the Web. Happy Learning!!
