What would you change about Duolingo?

I personally would want to have a tab where you can message friends on Duolingo, instead of making a discussion and hoping your friends will see it and talk to you. So then, you can privately talk to friends.

Native audio instead of awful text-to-speech


1000000% support. Some languages (especially the ones I'm interested in) would be impossible to implement into Duolingo without native audio.


Their choices of text colors in the lessons make the text hard to read because of the low contrast between text and background. For example, in the new web version, for correct answers the translations at the bottom are green text on green background. The default font for the translation is also small in that area. These combine to make the text hard to read, especially if the language uses accents.

It never ceases to amaze me that there are web designers who think that low contrast text is easy to read.


I sort of agree, but not on private discussions because those can turn bad very quickly.


i like the old version

    I agree. I wish that the activity stream would came back or they would add something similar.


    Yeah the activity thing was the best, now I can't see notifications if I have more than 5.


    Nothing. Every change made it worst.


    Well, you could change the fact that changing something makes it worse. ^^
