Have you already started learning a new language? With the app Duolingo you can learn a language completely free! In the meantime, a few employees have already started using DuoLingo, so we are sharing some of experiences.
"DuoLingo is a very nice way to learn a new language for free. The exercises are very diverse. Sometimes you have to name pictures or pair a picture with a word, you have to pronounce words or sentences and sometimes you have to write a full sentence. So you don't have to study really hard, but you learn in a really fun way."
"It's a nice free app to gain basic knowledge of a foreign language, but you shouldn't assume that after a level you'll be fluent in the language. The app gives you a good basic knowledge, but you will really start to learn a language when you put it into practice and have conversations with others."
"I give it 5 stars! It's fun and they build up well. The app starts off easy and slowly gets more difficult. Also, the different games keep challenging you to go further."

How does it work?
The app works with different types of lessons, levels and 'worlds'. By playing different games, you unlock new levels each time, this way you learn a new language in a playful way. The app has been developed with smart technology that continuously adapts the games to your personal development so that you always learn at exactly the right level for you.
Which languages can you learn?
Through Duolingo you can learn more than 30 different languages, including Dutch, English, Polish and Romanian.
How much does Duolingo cost?
On Duolingo you can learn languages completely free of charge.
Per day you get 5 hearts (lives). If you make a mistake in one of the games, one of your hearts goes away. Did you make 5 mistakes? Then you are finished and the app will be blocked for 24 hours.
Do you want to continue using the app indefinitely? Then you can also purchase Duolingo Plus. This will give you unlimited access to all lessons, you will receive infinite hearts (lives) and you will not see any advertisements. The cost for this is €7.33 per month.
Does it take a lot of time to learn a language?
No, and that's the fun part of Duolingo! One game of Duolingo takes an average of only 3 minutes.
Several studies show that our brains absorb information faster and store new knowledge when we play games or watch a movie/story. Storytelling is the best way of learning for our brain! Duolingo itself says that if you play the app for 15 minutes a day, you will learn a new language the fastest.
