How I Use It
While I have recommended this app to many students, my primary experience utilizing it is personal and with my own children. My kids love learning with DuoLingo, and even though I am not great with languages, I've learned a lot myself. Possible uses of this app would be in foreign language classes or ELL classes to work on vocabulary, spelling, and use of languages.
My Take
I absolutely love DuoLingo. This app makes learning a language actually fun. The app offers games and opportunities to practice what you know. Although the app is fun to use, it actually offers good information on spelling and grammar within the language.
