- Upvoted a comment on DuolingoThe free version has A LOT of ads. If you make 3 mistakes during a lesson, the lesson is failed and you have to watch more ads + take some mini-refresher course. The paid version removes all that, but at 120 per year, which is about as much as Rosetta Stone. They also just keep removing features: grammar hints are gone, discussions to ask for help are gone, feedback on phrases and lessons are gone, meetups are gone, etc. At the time of writing, they are also reducing the flexibility of the app and forcing you to a "path" upgrade which means you can learn the language only in the way they deem it possible. Only the stage has a topic e.g "talk about your family and yourself". A stage has about 10 lessons, each is repeated about 5 times. The lessons have no description of what you're learning. Is it family? Yourself? Are you learning pronouns? Nothing. It used to be a good app, but those days are gone.
