Duolingo is wonderful! I use it in tandem with memrise, which features videos of people speaking the language. Together, I've seen my comprehension in French and Vietnamese absolutely skyrocket! It all started with Duo <3

I tried Duolingo for Spanish, but found it to have a lot of errors. Meaning, I would write the correct translation, and it would mark my answer wrong and then say the solution, which would be exactly what I wrote. It would also mark my answers wrong if I forgot a period, or wrote a similar translation (eg: don't vs do not) that was still correct but not exactly what the app wanted. Does anyone else have this problem?

I also found that Duolingo dropped the "the" before nouns, which (at least in Spain) isn't done. So, I suppose I just don't trust Duolingo for Spanish. But I'm glad it is helpful to so many people. c:

thats werid when i used duolingo it wouldnt correct punctuation mistakes (it wouldnt count contractions like you said tho). i recommend using the web browser version instead of the app, because it doesn't have the health bar thing and its less glitchy.
