How do I complain

I am doing dual lingo on the iPad, and there are gross mistakes in the translations. There is no way that I can post a grievance, or see any discussions of the sentences that are translated. What do I do?

If you're me, you decide to do most of your Duolingoing on the website, where you can see the discussions and report sentences that you think should be accepted. If you choose to do most of your Duolingo on the iPad, you decide the convenience and the functional mic are worth the frustration of not being able to read the discussions.

Thanks...I guess when I don't have a computer handy, it is better to do the lessons and not have the explanations so I get practice, then to not do the lessons at all.

The only way I know for the iPad is to make a note of the skill/lesson/sentence and report it after the lesson using the support button..

Thanks for your suggestion!

I've seen people take screenshots of the error and tweet it to @Duolingo. No writing down the error and returning to the computer needed. I see @Duolingo responding to such tweets all the time, so their twitter support might be more responsive than their website support.

thanks for that, i never use twitter myself so it's good to know that it might be a better way of reporting problems.

I am extremely dissatisfied with the new updates. I haven’t been on in awhile, but I recently started using Duolingo again to continue using Spanish during the summer. I am unpleased with how I am no longer able to test out of subjects, and the whole “health” system is ridiculous. There shouldn’t be a limit of time that can be spent practicing a language.

the whole “health” system is ridiculous.

A popular workaround to avoid the "Health" feature

Use Duolingo's web version on your phone/tablet (, because it .......

  • does not have the "Health" system and gems

  • will work in the newest version of the Chrome or Firefox browser on your phone or tablet, if you have rather good Wifi (or LTE/4G with an Internet bundle)

For the best typing experience:

  • set the browser to mobile mode
  • use the phone in portrait mode

AND enjoy the better teaching method:

  • sentence discussions
  • grammar "Tips and notes"
  • toggle between "using wordbanks" and "typing the words"

. I am unpleased with how I am no longer able to test out of subjects

Usually on duolingo I complete about 8 tasks everyday, but sometimes it doesn't count them, anyone know why
