I have tried Duolingo because of its Esperanto course and then learnt (basics of) several languages. It is great, despite zero coverage of my native language (Slovak).

Excellent tool for immersion learning, as you can practice a little every day. It has helpful community also. If game-like rewards help you, this is a great app; you gain a point each day, but you loose your points is you skip a day. That works for me, the more points I have the less I want to restart the count.
It has many language combinations (for example English to French speakers, German to Spanish speakers, etc...).

Can be infuriating

It provides no coaching to help you understand nuanced practices of languages. I ended up giving up after a few hours of crying as I just couldn't figure out why what I was inputting was wrong. It needs to be more human, and less robotic - it needs to be able to identify when you are struggling with something, and help you with it, in an upbuilding way - not just by getting you to repeat the same mistakes, over and over, making it very known that you are dumb and wrong, as it currently does.
