Duolingo is the most popular way to learn languages in the world. Best of all, it's 100% free!

Besides Duolingo, what else do you use?

As great as Duolingo is, you should never use only one method to learn anything, let alone a language. Diversification creates a more robust method of understanding.

So I want help in diversifying. What else do you use?

Alongside Duolingo, I use Memrise, Anki, iTunes podcasts, and a native speaking friend in the event I have one around.

    Memrise, Lingq and good old fashioned books.

    Google is also an underrated resource some people don't seem to have heard about.

    A lot of people don't like Google Translate, but I do. (My son works for Youtube, so I'm possibly somewhat biased towards Google products, though.)

      I meant the search engine, not Google translate, although I do use that with languages I am confident in.

      Well, I found Duolingo through a Google search. :-)

      I use Duolingo, and Memrise for Italian and German. Also, for Italian I watch a youtuber "learn Italian with Lucrezia" and for German "Learn German with Ania."

      I'm also (attempting) to read Harry Potter in Italian

      I've got a few books in French that I've picked up over the past few years (mostly translations from English of authors I already know), though I don't think I'm ready for any of them yet, but I've never read the Harry Potter books, not even in my native English. Just didn't have any interest in them.

      i read them in english, so that's part of the reason I chose to read them in Italian, since I already knew the story-line.

      Memrise to improve my languages learnt on Duolingo. However, I use Chineseskill to learn (Mandarin) Chinese.

      I love using Memrise, especially for languages very distant from Afrikaans or English.

      I have, but am not currently using, Rosetta Stone for French.

      I like this site a lot: http://www.thefrenchexperiment.com/learn-french/question-words

      Here's a site I found recently that looks very interesting: http://learn-french-free-with-stories.weebly.com/beginner-french-bilingual-story-lesson-part-one.html

      I'm currently focusing on American Sign Language. I go on walks with a friend or out to food and we practices with "voices off" for a few hours. I also use LifePrint's website as well as their YouTube channel. To help me organize my vocabulary review, I use the hyperlinked vocabulary lists on the website, entered into the Evernote app and sync it between my laptop and phone. ^_^
