Duolingo is a gamified, customizable, language-learning platform that integrates a website, a mobile app and also a language-proficiency examination. Duolingo uses the freemium model: the app and website is accessible for free, but you can pay for premium service.
The app has gained popularity by teaching language lessons on the go. It takes pride in a constant practice model where users can utilize their breaks and commutes to boost vocabulary and fluency in a selected language. Results are shown immediately, and rewards can be used to unlock new levels that will help further with your mastery.
On the other hand, Duolingo gained notoriety among its users through its tailored learning systems that send notifications not only on the app, but also through email. This method of constant reminders has been identified as mildly-threatening – and in some cases, passive-aggressive – notifications to those who have missed their quick lessons for days.
Ever tried this app? Whether you have or haven’t yet, let these Duolingo memes convince you why it’s fun to learn a new language!
