  5. Duolingo Program Hangs


Duolingo Program Hangs

Several times this morning I have clicked on CONTINUE and then waited several minutes with nothing happening other than the little white wheel in the upper left hand corner spins merrily. Is this an issue on my end? Or yours?

September 25, 2013



I'm having the same problem today. It's not a connectivity problem, it's a scripting hang in the browser. I'm using Chrome 67.0.3396.99 on a Mac running 10.13.6 (17G65). Cmd-R (refresh) pauses for a few seconds and raises a dialog box saying the page is not responding, with options to Wait or Leave Page.

Restarting Chrome updated to version 69.0.3497.81, and now it hangs at the Continue button, and a force quit is required to close the tab.

Testing with Firefox: All working normally


You have a problem of Internet connection


Same issue, internet connection seems fine, other apps working, email notifications coming into my phone.


Happened to me on Window Phone app ,iPad and on PC too. Happens when continue button is pressed, It's related to duolingo programme itself since other sites were working fine. Sometimes waiting for a minute or two helps,at other times i have to quit and restart all over again.


I experienced the same thing on my phone. The easiest way to get going again is to turn off and turn your phone on again.
