Website problems

Hi I am having problems with the Duolingo website. No 1- lessons are extremely slow to load initially and after each completed question 2- the audio sometimes doesn’t work at all or for only part of the sentence and I have to try and workout what the last word or words are. This is extremely frustrating and I have been close to giving up more than once but I have put a lot of time in to this and it is a struggle for me - I am not a natural . I have put in a report and was asked to send a screenshot which is impossible for these problems. I have checked my settings and the audio is on. I have a new iPad so not a computer problem.

This might be an issue with wifi.

I agree. Could you try it with a different device or in a different location with good wifi?

Yes have tried at my daughters and still the same. My WiFi is good this is the only site I have a problem with.

WiFi is good have no problem with any other website .

Ah, ok. Maybe a problem with which web browser you use? Duolingo is designed for the most recent version of Google Chrome.


mobile app or website?

But people are continually posting that the Safari browser is a real problem with all the code updates to the web UI in 2019!!

Who knows how the audio behaves with Safari...

If you want to use a web browser with Duolingo, you need to stick to Google Chrome V77/V78, Mozilla Firefox Quantum (latest); you can also try "Microsoft Edge"!!
Other browsers (or older versions) do not seem to be tested from staff!!!

You should expect to run into multiple problems with Safari:

"No access to home":

I won't comment on the IOS mobile app.

Thank you for your reply and I use the website.
