Can I be fluent in German with Duolingo?
Duolingo is great for learning some of the basic vocabulary and rules (like word order etc.), but to be fluent you need to understand the language (spoken, read, also colloquial variants) and also to speak it. The latter you won’t learn unless you actually do it.
Is Duolingo accurate for German?
It is accurate, but some translations in later lessons can sound slightly unnatural in everyday speech, so be careful about that. It should give you a good start, especially, and I can’t stress this enough, combined with other resources.
Is Duolingo enough for German A1?
If you do Duolingo slow and learn everything it is almost enough, but not enough. You need to practice listening comprehension, specially the numbers for phone numbers, prices, addresses etc. You need to practice writing and some more reading.
Can Duolingo get you to B1 German?
It is generally said that the Duolingo course alone will get you to about an A2 or maybe a low B1 in reading, A2 in writing, and A1 in listening. Speaking is up to you – if you practice a lot you could reach A1.
What level does Duolingo German get you to?
Duolingo has grammar up to B1, but not the whole grammar of B1. However in writing, listening and and speaking the level is not even totally A1, because the CEFR questions are about everyday situations and Duolingo does not have them.
How long does it take to learn German in Duolingo?
The tree with 40 minutes a day will take you from 6 to 8 months.
Is Duolingo a waste of time?
It’s a waste of time. In fact, it’s just as bad as the education system Von Ahn criticizes. Duolingo outsources its translation services, allowing for awkward sentences to slip in undetected. And translation (the core of its platform) is already widely known to be an ineffective way to learn a language.
How reliable is Duolingo?
Duolingo is the best free app for learning a language. Unique features and a clear structure make it a reliable place to learn new languages or sharpen your skills.
Will duolingo get you to A1?
The general consensus is duolingo will bring you to a A2-B1 level of fluency (check out the above discussion to see what that means). I would agree that your reading/writing skills will be higher than you listen/speaking skills.
How do you pass the A1 in German?
So you have to be able to do the following at an A1 level: listen, read, write, and speak. To reach the A1 level, plan for about 75 total hours of studying. This means that if you study two hours a day, you could be ready in six weeks.
