Doulingo a Genious App

Have you ever wanted to learn a second language without the cost and time you would have to put in by going to classes or using outrageously expensive programs such as Rosetta Stone? Doulingo might be the answer to your prayers. 

After spending a good amount of time using it, I have ceretently improved my Spanish, and I’ve also helped CNN, and Buzzfeed translate there websites. Doulingo has a contract with those two sites, and as you are doing your daily quests you are also helping the company stay afloat, as the app is free, and the way they earn their money is by having the users translate news. 

What a genius business plan, the idea came from  CAPTCHA which was bought by Google and is now reCAPTCHA, for you ever done any shopping at ticketmaster, or any other ticket site you know about the box where you see some letters from an old book. That  is Google confirming that you are not a bot, and also you are helping them creating a library. 

After completing all the challenges in the app you are suppose to be able to read a book in the language you have been studying, and conversations will still be rusty, but you are able to understand what people are saying. 

Give it a go, and have fun with it.
