    "This is a very good app. Duolingo has a host of languages you can choose to pick up and learn. What makes it very unique for me is that I can learn while playing the games they provide. They flash images and speak the words which after awhile I can pick up pretty easily from just listening. There's also writing that helps really ingrain things into memory. I really enjoy Duolingo and feel it's a great app if you're looking to learn some new languages while having a fun and engaging experience."

    "I love this app! I used to get stuck on youtube videos about random facts about different subjects but this does a much better job than google's recommended algorithms. I've literally spent hours just reading through some of the most interesting articles I've ever read. If you have a curious mind and like to spend time learning new things this app is a must!"
