  • What is the best and easiest way to learn Dutch
    Give a go, I think it does a much better way of explaining words and grammar than Duolingo. Good luck! - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • Similar website as Lengalia for Italian?
    When I was starting out I used a subscription to Busuu and thought it was pretty good. They had listening exercises, vocab exercises, grammar/conjugation, and test exams. There's also a community feature where native speakers can correct some of the exercises you do (and vice versa). - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • 30F Looking for a language partner to practice basic French. I can help with Portuguese (BR)
    I have been studying French for a few years (I still don't feel I would be very beneficial to you unfortunately, however) and a good place to look for language partners that I have found is . A big section of it is connection to others learning your native language that speak your learning language. Just fyi if you want that info. (: Good luck!! - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
  • Duolingo is overrated
    Then I've tried Busuu premium, which is considerably better than Duolingo - at the very least tries to teach you grammar, and the video contents are really well produced. For an absolute beginner it is great! - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago

    I learn english at One of my lessons contain phrase "i had dinner" and also "i had pizza". I am confused. Dinner and pizza it is countable nouns. Should I use "a" article? - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
  • Wtf happened to weekly challenges
    I came here to ask the same question! If you go to there are still ways to do this but I can't find it on the app anymore... - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • 1 week in learning
    Optional Step 2.5: Use a textbook like Genki1 or Japanese from Zero, if you prefer using textbooks, or if you're like me and you don't really benefit from textbooks, I recommend the app Busuu; out of all the language learning apps I've used, Busuu has been by far the most enjoyable. I still recommend using Anik, Bunpro and Wanikani for the SRS element. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Could someone explain why this is wrong?
    Yes it has alot of other languages and a community function where native speakers can correct some of your sentences the name of the app is Busuu but it's paid. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago

    Channels like those, along with have worked very well for me. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Anywhere to learn Spanish on campus?
    If you go to or download the app, you will see solid improvement in using it for just 20 minutes a day. I used it for French and it helped me get from the A2 level to the B2. You can stick to the free version or get the premium subscription. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Other main sources for learning & input?
    Aside from Duolingo, a better paid alternative is LingoDeer (which you can usually get a lifetime subscription to for under $100 by using a coupon code). There's also Busuu, which includes peer review for your answers (by fluent/native speakers). - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Hi, how do I start self-studying Japanese with online resources?
    I tried using duolingo but it didnt really seem helpful as it was more like a game than a studying app. I actually found this website called but im not sure if it is reliable. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • In general, how helpful are college level Spanish classes in the US?
    Taking classes will give you a community and expose you to things you wouldn't come across on your own, but if you want to actually learn the language you'll need to take the bull by the horns and create your own system. For me,,, and have been very helpful. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • Is there a sub or app where we can find a native Russian speaker? Need to learn and practice Russian. has a pretty good Russian-speaking community, they check exercises and provide good feedback. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
