Duolingo is so much fun that you feel like you are playing a game.
The lessons include:
- Translating sentences and words
- Speaking or typing phrases you hear and see
Duolingo reinforces learning by using several methods and applauds you after each lesson.
You earn lingots after completing a lesson and can use them to:
- Access bonus skills
- Get Power-ups
- Change your Duolingo character's clothes
Duolingo does not replace talking with native speakers, but is a great place to start learning a language with minimal time commitment. I'm sure you can find snippets of time in your day to do something for yourself--learn a new language!
