Font Size

I’ve noticed that in some languages—particularly those with alphabets different from my native one—the size of the text is rather small.

It would be immensely helpful if we could choose the size of the text in the app.

For me in this particular case, I’m looking at the Arabic lessons. It’s certainly legible, but it would be so much easier to read if it was larger.

There might be an option for text size in the options app on your phone.

Amen! I find that it takes me a lot longer because it is so small. I'm going to try on my ipad where I can enlarge it myself.

Tried it on different hardware and gadgets - the size of foreign letters is just too small, especially for arabic. real a must do to make it larger!

Agreed! I’m taking screen shots so I can see them, very laborious but it’s impossible to see otherwise. Especially when vocabulary improves and all kinds of tiny symbols completely change the sounds. IS THERE ANYONE FROM DUOLINGO PAYING ATTENTION THIS THIS????? Some kind of response acknowledging the problem would be appreciated

Did you find a way to make the text bigger? Even with my glasses on I find it too hard to see the letters clearly enough to be sure what they are, whether it's my MacBook or iPhone. It would make a huge difference if I could see it better
