Learn a New Language with Duolingo


Duolingo uses fun, game-like lessons, goal setting and rewards to increase your ability to not only learn but retain learning a new language: "Over 200 million people around the world use Duolingo to help them learn languages." Best of all, Duolingo is completely free. Duolingo is also available as a mobile app. Duolingo was chosen by Apple, iPhone App of the Year and Google named us as the Best of the Best in Google Play.
