How Duolingo works
I did a couple of French lessons, with the regular goal. I felt learning so awesome. Each course in Duolingo is made up of modules that are grouped to form skills. App tells the order in which user needs to complete the different modules. You can go to the next module only if you have completed the first module. The app lets you test your skill of individual module or group of modules. It also tells you about your weaker module and suggests you strengthen.
Language learner had to accomplish each lesson without losing its hearts. Duolingo also consists of listening exercises where learner type what he/she wants to hear, and speaking exercises where learner speak what he/she wants to hear.
Cost of App – Paid or Free
The free ad-supported version of the Duolingo will remain available in the play store. But after 7 days trial; Duolingo Plus offers you plan on monthly, Half yearly and yearly basis.
Another key component of how Duolingo makes its money is through translation -by selling the translations that users do.

The idea of the app is novel-learning with fun. The app holds the secret of future education. So, in my opinion, the app will last long.
