It says to go to settings but there is nothing there that refers to cancellation!!! You can delete account but that does not cancel subscription. I would tell everyone NEVER use this unethical website.

I want to cancel my Duolingo Plus account, but have been unable to do so, despite trying to follow multiple instructions on Google. So I have uninstalled my Duolingo app, today 9/6/21, and do not intend to pay for anymore months of subscription.
Please advise me if there is anything else I can do or need to do to cancel and not pay for my subscription. I've enjoyed using your app, but I'm leaving for Italy soon and no longer need it.

My iphone crashed. With a new phone I tried to re-establish my Italian course, but was assessed to be at a level way above my achievements. I have not been able to find the level I was at. I am at the point of giving up. I'm totally stuck and will try to find a different course if I am not assisted. It's a pity.

If you are just starting out on a language this is the app. You learn words effectively and it is very good at encouraging to learn. The unfortunate thing was it got very repetitive and takes some time to get through to learn new words. It was very good when I first started learning Norwegian or Norsk Bokmål. I got the basics but really just basics. Duolingo won’t make you fluent but it is a great starting place and language practice tool to have when first encountering a new language. Don’t expect yourself to learn an entire language with Duolingo alone but it is great when wanting to practice the language you are learning or getting a few new words. Once again, it doesn’t feel like you are making super fast progress or you have grown quickly but I always enjoying going on and practicing. Another problem is that I never really understood why something was some way and Duolingo did not really do a good job explaining the reasons behind something so I was left confused. The good thing is these questions can be answered on the forum that Duolingo provides. Also the pronunciation does not appear to be given. All you could do was hear the word but I could never tell if the letter “d” was pronounced at the end of some words or not. I had to learn this outside of Duolingo. To conclude this is SPECTACULAR language learning app and I recommend it for all who want to try a new language.
Duolingo is helping me to successfully master a foreign language. I studied Spanish for 4yrs in high school. (That was 30 yrs ago) Ever since then I’ve tried to continue that learning, with the goal of becoming fully fluent. The challenge is to get from a learning stage to an actual immersion and usage of the language. I have used Duolingo free version at times, and it’s fun and helpful, but... there are limits to how much I learn that way. 3 months ago I signed up for Duolingo Plus. Wow! Wow! Wow! In 3 months time I have learned so much more! I am more motivated to return for lessons daily. And there seems to be a lot more content. I finished all the levels of the free version, and then was stuck with no more increased learning. But with Plus, not only have I increased my Spanish vocabulary. I am mastering more verb conjugation, and gaining a better understanding of phrases and sentence structure. My listening/ understanding of Spanish has multiplied so much, and speaking is improving, too. Understanding native Spanish speakers has always been a big struggle for me. (“Más despacio, por favor” is a fave phrase of mine) I see so much growth in my skills, it blows my mind! I can’t wait for an opportunity to immerse myself in a live setting where I can try my skills again. Duolingo Plus is worth every penny in order for me to reach my fluency goal. I think that by the end of one year , or maybe two, I will achieve this life long goal.
After having used Babel, Busuu, and Rosetta Stone I’m surprised to say that Duolingo is absurdly better made than I used to think. I’ve been using Duolingo on and off for years (half-heartily for awhile and only seriously in the recent past) and I’ve found that the flaws which once seemed glaring are actually not as bad as some other language learning apps. The voice work is an order of magnitude better than Busuu and the lesson structure ,despite seeming somewhat obtuse, is actually incredibly helpful. The pseudo game structure of lessons also helps to keep practice from becoming too much of a chore. I’m probably not saying anything new here but I feel like the only thing that keeps Duolingo from being vastly superior to other language apps is the lack of grammatical instruction in some of the languages. Languages like French have more recently had grammar lessons added even from the start of the course, but Korean has none. From my use of other apps that do a better job explaining grammar I’ve found that Duolingo works really well as a companion app to build vocabulary and just practice hearing/using the language, and is possibly more useful once you have the basics of a language down. The only other language app I’ve used that comes close to rivaling the versatility of Duolingo that I’ve used thus far is Lingodeer which is much better for learning Korean than any other app I’ve encountered.
I’ve been using Duolingo for a while now to practice my French, and in the time I have had the app I have tried out several other languages too (including Spanish, Russian, German, Klingon, etc.). The games make learning fun and the teaching style helps keep the terms and sentence structures ingrained in my memory very well! My only request/hope for this app (not a complaint, I love the app) is that while I appreciate the inclusion of fictional languages like High Valyrian and Klingon, I would like for there to be more significant languages to be added to Duolingo’s roster of classes as well. Widely-spoken languages like Arabic and Bengali are noticeably absent on the course list (for English-speakers, not sure about others), as well as Finnish, which is a little strange because Norwegian, Swedish, and Danish are all present. Personally, as someone whose family comes from the western Balkans, I would love to see a language course on Serbo-Croatian, since it is a difficult language that I believe Duolingo would be an excellent tool to help me to become better at it. Recently, Hawaiian and Navajo were added to the roster, which excites me and makes me hope for these languages to be added sometime in the future as well. Overall, I love the app and will continue using it to study foreign languages! I look forward to seeing more language courses added in future updates! 👍
This app is really helping me to learn very quickly. I am learning Greek and brushing up on Spanish. I wish it would handle a few things differently Among them, letting me test out of Spanish levels further along the way than it does, but I understand they are testing whether that feature is more or less beneficial for learning at the moment. So, I upvoted the feature :). The other thing is that the adds are locked in portrait mode and the “practice” tab also starts out and sometimes gets stuck in portrait mode. I have tor turn my iPad to portrait and back to landscape and it usually switches to landscape then, but not always. I pretty much always use my iPad in landscape mode. Especially when I am using the keyboard, which the app has plenty of. I wish that the whole thing would just be in the orientation of my screen without changing/ trying to figure out which direction it should be as I use the app. Otherwise, this app has been AMAZING and, while, I’d love those improvements, I’m really just being nit picky. I didn’t feel it deserved any less than 5 stars because the rest is awesome! One note, if anyone is having trouble understanding anything in the language you’ve chosen or with the app, visit the website and check out the discussions tab. There is a lot of helpful info in there and many other language learners who are very happy to help out!
