Learn Languages Online for Free

Learning languages at Duolingo.com is completely free – now and forever – with no ads or hidden fees.

Courses on Duolingo.com can teach upwards of 2,000 words.

How to Duolingo:

Create an account, choose the languages that you would like to learn (Latin American Spanish, French, German, Brazilian Portuguese, Italian, and Dutch courses for English speakers or American English for Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Russian, Polish, Turkish, Hungarian, Romanian, Japanese, Hindi, Indonesian, and Korean speakers) and Duolingo creates a “skill tree” for each language that you want to learn.

Completing one skill unlocks other skills, which allow you to progress from basic words all the way through various verb tenses and abstract ideas.

Duolingo LanguagesWhen you click on a lesson you’ll see a series of tips and common questions.

Each skill has a number of exercises. You read and listen to phrases in both English and the other language you chose to learn. Then you translate it into the box. Up to 13 points are awarded per lesson.

When you get one wrong, you lose a heart. When you get four wrong, you must retry the lesson.

Duolingo also includes a timed practice feature, where users are given 30 seconds and twenty questions and awarded a skill point and seven or ten additional seconds (time depends on the length of the question) for each correct answer.

There is also a social aspect to this free online language program. You can create an activity stream, interact with other language learners and compete based on your total points with other users or with your friends on Facebook.

DuoLingo gives you skill points for completing lessons, charts your daily progress and will even send you optional daily reminder emails for you to keep working.

It’s free for everyone. What does the company get out of it?

The service is designed so that, as users progress through the lessons, they simultaneously help to translate websites and other documents.

In speaking of the importance of our memory and just being able to remember or recall information and dialogues, tell us in your language, if you were suddenly given a memory that allowed you to store forever every important piece of information you came into, and/or every great idea that popped into your head, what do you think you would or could do with such a power? How do you think your life might change?

If you could design your perfect program to learn a language any way you wanted, how would you think outside of the box to design it? Would you use audibles, visuals, flash cards, games, music. A combination of all? If so, what percentage would you allocate to each teaching protocol?

    We also like Duolingo, in fact did a review last year and are currently learning Dutch with it for an update.
    The only complaint we have are the sometimes nonsensical sentences.
    (which apparently are getting less and less as the courses are being improved!)
    Our gamesforlanguage.com courses – also completely FREE, as Duoling – for French, German, Italian and Spanish use an immersion-style approach with a travel story and fast moving games. The learner is being thrown right into everyday, real-life conversations. During the first three levels you hear and learn words and phrases first before hearing “The Story”, which you can then record to test your pronunciation. From then on, for the rest of the 36-lesson course, you hear “The Story” dialogs first. German 2 “Blüten in Berlin”, a 72-lesson course, is already on line, to be followed by French 2 in a few months.
