If you’re planning a trip abroad (or want to be prepared, just in case…), check out Duolingo, a free science-based language education app now available on Windows Phone 8.1! This app makes learning a new language—or brushing up on rusty skills—fun and addictive.
With Duolingo, you can learn Spanish, French, German, Portuguese or Italian in bite-sized, effective lessons; an independent study concluded that 34 hours of Duolingo is equal to 1 University-level semester of language education!
Fun app features include:
- Constant challenges: Each lesson includes a variety of speaking, listening, translation and multiple choice challenges, with instant feedback to see what you missed and how to improve.
- Games that work: Duolingo tracks how many days in a row you take a lesson, and how many questions you get right in each lesson, and updates your Streak Count and Hearts so you can see your performance and keep improving!
- Windows Phone-only features: Duolingo on Lumia features Live Tiles to encourage you to get back into your lesson, and Fast Resume so you can get back to learning languages quicker.
Duolingo is already available for download in the Windows Phone Store.
