Using Duolingo on your Windows computer is actually very easy but if you are new to this process, you will definitely need to pay attention to the steps listed below. This is because you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We will help you download and install Duolingo on your computer in 4 simple steps below:


1: Download an Andriod Software emulator for Windows

The importance of the emulator is that it emulates or immitates an android environment on your computer, making it super easy to install and run android apps from the comfort of your PC without buying a phone that runs android. Who says you cannot enjoy both worlds? To begin, you can download such an emulator app made by too top dogs in the space.
A. Nox App . OR
B. Bluestacks App .
Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 


2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.
Once you have find it, click it to install the application. It should start the installation process on your PC.
Click Next to accept the EULA License agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application.

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and locate the search bar. Now type Duolingo in the search bar and hit Search. You will easily see the app. Click on Duolingo application icon. A window of Duolingo will open and it will display the app in your Emulator Software. Hit the Install button and your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.

App Reviews

  • Surprisingly good

    I started learning German through this app only a week ago, and already I'm making significant strides in the language. I find it much more effective than dealing with a human teacher, since I'm not tempted to mess around as I would with a person. ;-) My only complaint is that sometimes I don't understand some of the insane grammatical rules, and it would be nice if they included detailed explanations. Update: I am on a 253 day streak of daily lessons, and I can now usually communicate passably well in German, although I still make plenty of mistakes. You should be aware that the computer version of Duolingo is noticeably harder and more useful (you have access to discussion on each question) than the app version. Update: I’ve been using Duolingo for 1,290 days now. Diminishing returns by this point, but it continues to get easier conversing (although I still can’t follow much fast speech on TV shows). I still make frequent mistakes but I’ll blame viciously cruel German grammar for that. ;-) Definitely use the computer version rather than the app. With the former I average more than one new sentence per lesson per day (even after all this time!) and usually make a mistake or two (without using any hints). With the app, I often complete four full lessons without making a single mistake (so it’s not as challenging). Regardless, at this point it really helps to read and watch other German material to supplement Duolingo. And find Germans to talk to.

    It’s the only free language service I’ve found. I’m loving learning Italian on here and if I can ever afford it, I have the option to pay for it to stop ads and keep learning in the same system that I’ve grown to love. There’s so much variety in how they test your knowledge. You really have to pay attention and I personally take notes like it’s a class because they won’t let you put the wrong word even when it’s the right word in the wrong tense. I appreciate the accuracy and I think the whole set up is great. The only thing it’s lacking is a background on why the words are the way they are. It would be easier(and I don’t know how they would integrate this) if they told us- oh, verbs have six forms. I drink: Io bevo. You drink: Tu bevi. He/She drinks: Lui/Lei beve. They drink: Loro bevono. We drink: Noi beviamo. You all drink: Voi bevete. There’s no one to tell you, and you have to notice these patterns and remember them. Good news is, they’re linear and that structure works for a lot of them. I eat/drink/read/write: Io mangio/bevo/leggo/scrivo. And so on: We eat/drink/read/write: Noi mangiamo/beviamo/leggiamo/scriviamo. So it’s great that I notice these patterns, but maybe there are a few who don’t catch on and get frustrated and quit. Maybe a little more explanation could be added in. And then even though I can figure it out, I won’t have to on my own and others will have a clearer path. All together though, I love this app and I appreciate it so much.
  • New smaller word boxes TOO SMALL

    4
    By OnthBeach54
    Since the recent update (late April 2018), on my iPad Pro DuoLingo app, the word boxes and the type within them, which one taps to put together a translated sentence, are frequently appearing much smaller than the helpful size they consistently were before. Sometimes they appear in the original size, but more often now, even with a short sentence where there is no problem fitting them on the page, they are very small. Harder to read, and harder to accurately select. And I have small hands/fingers. I lost several “health” bars and had to stop my lesson sooner than in the past, because I was selecting at the speed I always have, and realized I could not have the confidence I had grown accustomed to, that when I think I have touched a word box, it is selected. So my learning process is slowed not because I am selecting the incorrect word and losing health, but that I have to stop and check more diligently to make sure the box I tapped (or tried to, but apparently did not hit the now very small “sweet spot” on it which selects it), actually shows up in the answer box. This was NEVER an issue before the change in word-box size. Please make them, if not as large as they have been previously, larger than they are after this recent “upgrade”. Very annoying in an otherwise wonderful app...you folks say you want to make learning easy, and my feedback is that this tiny type in close-together boxes, is an impediment to learning. Thank you.

    This is my third attempt in life to learn Spanish. I took it once in middle school and tried to pick it up again a few years ago. I work at a Mexican restaurant where a few employees I work with only speak Spanish and a few others who speak Spanish and English, so having people I want to communicate with and I can practice on gave me a reason to try again. I’ve actually learned more in a week on this app then I did a year in Spanish class. I used a similar language app that was monthly subscription but I didn’t get too far on it. This one is free, fun, challenging, and I can’t wait to see where I’ll be in a month and a year from now. My only issue with the app is when it says you used the wrong word even though you used the word it consistently used before. Example. I had to translate ‘Yo necesito una camisa’ and I wrote ‘I need a shirt.’ Well up to this point, it’s always been ‘I need’ but it said I used the wrong word and ‘I require’ was correct. Which it is, but it wasn’t consistent. I redid that question and used ‘ I need ‘ again and got it right. This has happened a few other times as well. Most of the time it will say ‘Another correct solution is’ and give you another possible answer. On some rare occasions it will say you used the wrong word even though it’s the one you always used and it will say you got it right the second time around. Amazing app, though. Thank you!
  • Good app! ...but needs work!

    By Havoc x Raptor
    Great free app, very helpful and useful in learning new or refining old languages. However, it still needs work in my opinion. I am learning Spanish and I have learned a lot more than I already knew in a couple days... but there are times when using a proper word is necessary to succeed and move on, but I have to restart over and over again later (after practicing, to get health to play) ...because I picked the right term but wrong specific word and no explanation is given as to why. I.E: Yo (means I) has to be followed with an o in the use of words like como (eat) or bebo (drink) instead of come/comen/comes or bebe/beben/bebes (as I learned through searching), but no explanation is given as to why. It’s frustrating and infuriating. This needs to be explained and taught for proper teaching of other languages. Also, why does the asterisk above certain Spanish words apply but not on others? Learn it all or don’t even try I say! Finally, turn down the need for health as often, or turn up the regeneration rate. I read it was said that they are trying to make learning free. So do it more, please. Stop making me practice over and over again just to get 1 bar of health (works on only 1 mistake before failing) and have 1 measly chance at succeeding just to have to quit, practice, and start ALL OVER AGAIN; only to fail because I don’t understand what I did wrong! The ads are bad enough and should be sufficient... but then there’s this! Please fix!
  • I am literally crying right now 🤣😂😅it’s a miracle

    This is the BEST GAME EVER. OMG I think that whoever created this app u r genius. I wanted to speak Dutch and French soooooo badly I literally wouldn’t stop bothering my family to get me into language camp but they still didn’t teach me. I was so sad that I wasn’t going to learn those languages but then I found this app and I was like OMG this could be my ticket to speak those languages but then I was like no, this must cost mula when I’m in the app but when I tried it out it was free and it was amazing 😉 I am craving this app I am like all over it it’s my absolutely favorite app and I only got it last week it took me one week to become fluent with those languages I can say any word that I want in those languages, just stick to your excercizes and u will find out that u can become fluent at all of the languages in their box🤯🤯🤯 it’s really actually incredible that u can be fluent in a week with these languages when the app is free. Creators of this app do NOT raise any prices for this app or I will die ok u hear me DIE ya I know u heard. But this app is the best app for learning new languages I HIGHLY recommend it. This app is a miracle from heaven, when I became fluent at the languages I actually cried it was just sooooooo amazing that I’m now a Dutch speaker and French... so stoked. Well bye hope u get this app cause it’s the best app in the world... GET THIS APP ITS AMAZING 😍😍😘 if u don’t then... u r crazy😱😱😜😍
  • I am loving this app!

    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!
  • Great app, but one problem!

    I have been using Duolingo to learn French for a little while now. If you really want to be good at it I suggest working over and over on the basics 1 and mastering it, and continuing to work on it even after mastering it until you know the basics 1 words 100%, which is what I did. It’s a lot better to know the words than to rush through and not actually be able to remember them. One thing is, I have started the “phrases” section. Usually when you start a new section and it gives you words you haven’t seen yet, they will put a dotted line under it where you can see what it means and then eventually remember it. However on some new words it doesn’t give me the meaning and asks me to translate anyway. Since I don’t know the meaning of the word because I’ve never seen it I get it wrong and lose my health. I have used this app a long time ago to learn Italian (which I’ve since stopped) and it would always give me the meaning of the word, multiple times even. It’s just annoying to me that I have to lose my health because I don’t know the meaning of a new word. It’s not too much of a problem that I will delete the app, but something that could be fixed. I recommend using the computer version of duolingo for learning new words and phrases, and just using the app for strengthening your skills. Overall though this app is great!

    This app is great and all, but I’ve found that the desktop site is even more interesting and helpful. The app is very limiting. While the desktop version includes a better discussion board and quite a bit more info. HOWEVER, I have noticed some annoying changes in the desktop site. They are expanding the app, and diminishing the desktop site. Which, obviously, I really don’t agree with or like. If I needed more in depth information about a lesson, as they are usually very cut and dry on the app, I would sometimes go to the site and there might be extra pointers on certain things I wasn’t understanding. I keep trying to do things on the site and it keeps taking me back to the mobile version or a complete replica of the app on my browser. I get that they seem to be aiming at continuity and flow, but please do not take away all the information and good of the desktop site in order to grow the app. I also really miss being able to see my progress on each language. I liked being able to see how much further I had to go before leveling up. But apparently they removed that feature, while still keeping the levels???? Which is beyond me. Just seems like an added annoyance. One of my biggest pet peeves is needing the desktop site and even requesting it on my iPhone and still getting the mobile site or having to continually click Desktop Version/Full Version because every link takes me to a shortened version/aka the mobile site. Soooooo annoying.
  • #AWESOME!!!!! 😍😍. Best language learning app EVER!!!😍

    By Faithgabs
    This app is SSSOOO effective! When you start out you sign in with your email. If you want to, the app will give you a daily reminder to practice or start a new lesson. It will also email you if you get behind in your lessons, which is great for me bc I always forget to practice!😂 You choose the language that you want to learn and then your all set!! No bugs and it works great. And after learning the basics and finishing the first three lessons than you can actually have a conversation with automated people in that language!! You have to try to understand their questions and answer them and if you haven't learn a word yet that they say or you forget what it means then you can just click the word and it shows you the translation. It is AWESOME!! You HAVE to get this app!!!!😄😄. You can also join a club with actual people learning the same language as you! You can encourage each other and post your latest progress and you can also make friends and follow people you know and make a profile picture so that your friends can find you!! You can also make your own club if you want to!!! It is absolutely amazing!!!! If I could I would just tap that download button for you so that you be able to try out this app!!😜 you have to get this app! I hope you take my word for it. PEACE OUT!!!!✌️😂✌
