  5. Duolingo really does equal on…


Duolingo really does equal one semester of college learning!!

This learning platform is truly amazing! I've been using Duolingo every day as well as doing other personal studies, but Duolingo is what has taught me the majority of my skills!! I wanted to further my education by taking a French course at the university I am enrolled in. First I had to take the mandatory placement test and with Duolingo in my corner, I was able to obtain a score one point away from the intermediate level course. So amazing that an app can help me learn a second language so well that it almost surpassed an entire semester of a French course!!

    Congrats on your progress.

    You might find the following of interest:

    Other subjects available too - get the first year of college free.

    You can also take courses on Khan France and Khan English to become familiar with vocabulary by subject.


    Wow, this is awesome! Thank you so much for the extra help.


    Have you done the whole tree ???


    C'est génial! Continuez comme ça et vous verrez. Duolingo est très bien pour ceux qui veulent vraiment apprendre.

      did you finish the whole tree? i wonder how far can Duolingo get you if you actually learn everything the app can offer


      Duo is only as good as the person using it! You definitely made the most of it! Well done!


      Nice Streak! I lost my 80 something day streak, so sad :(


      Great testimonial! And well done!


      Congratulations, you did very well. I think that with a little help from more listening, talking and writing oriented resources you should have been able to jump 2 semesters.


      I am more spread out with about 30 languages


      I wonder if plus makes your learning better


      You have quizzes, unlimited hearts and no adds, I think it does help you a little bit more but there's not a huge difference.


      I completely agree, though I'd credit Duo higher than even Duo credits Duo. While I can't say that I've learned more here YET, my comprehension and foreign language development with Duo supercedes the extent of my previous studies combined (which INCLUDES a year's worth of college courses).

      My overall standards are high --- "if not perfection, then one's best" --- and I limit my praise to that which is deserving: honestly, I can't stop speaking positively of this app. It's that fantastic.

      Congratulations on your learning thus far ... you're doing great!
