Apps we love: Duolingo
With the world becoming more connected than ever thanks to the magic of technology – Duolingo is pitched perfectly to immerse the user in the daunting territory of learning a new language.
The context of travel has turned particularly favourable in recent months underlined by a strong pound, plunging flight prices and a growing economy. It’s easy to see the surging popularity for this app with more people travelling abroad than ever. Launched only two years, the app now has over 100 million users and has organically become the most popular way to learn languages online.
Duolingo is an easy to use app and fun (yes fun!) way to learn a new language. You can pick from 15 languages including French, Italian, Spanish – and even Hungarian or Turkish. The app allows users to engage with friends and track their progress making it extremely addictive, especially for those with a competitive streak.
Whether it’s on the train home from work or waiting in a queue, the app is masterful in keeping you engaged and coming back for more.
Best of all it is completely free with a seamless, smooth interface with no adverts or hidden charges!
Bonne chance et à bientôt!
