If you want to install and use the Duolingo app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Duolingo in the search bar and press Search. Click on Duolingo application icon. A window of Duolingo on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

Download on Andriod, Iphone
Free On iTunes
Download Android

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

  • Learning made easy and fun

    By Jesse-Kay
    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!
  • Love it, but some features need to be added

    By minhmornings
    I have to say that Duolingo has taken me to a new world of languages. I can spend my whole days practicing with Duo and increase my ability of using languages. However, there're still things that I'm not satisfied with this version for IOS: - the discussions after answers: I've wait for them since a long long time ago. I believe that Duolingo is not only a software for learning languages, but also a special environment for everyone to enhance their skills together. Using Duo on IOS is quite convenient, but if I want to check my answer with the other's, I have to login my account again on the version for web browser, go to that skill, do it and seek for the question. That's not good at all! - The report: Nothing happens when I press the button to report the errors (most of them are translation errors). My and other's reports are the very efficient tools to help Duo better, and we want to see that in the near future. - The club should be added to web version and the currency systems - gems - needs need to be synced. Anyway, the life point is awesome, but we want more games, or tournaments, or challenges, or... something like that, just to increase the competitiveness between leaners. I know that to solve with the problems I've listed above will take a lot of time and money and labor power, but we can believe with our effort and strength, the future of Duolingo is brighter than ever! Duolingo is the sweet home for everyone!
  • Duolingo is 💣

    By Ambermccoy
    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

    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.

  • Love it

    By curly stephie
    This is a great app! Motivating and easy to use. Highly recommend!
  • Friend feature not working

    By alex123456787657
    I actually love this app, just want to get you guys to make it so I can add friends. I hit follow, it says following, then I look at my friend group and it says no one still. I will update my review once fixed. Thanks
  • Great language app!

    By aikazm12
    Still at the basics of learning Italian and Spanish but this app is awesome. Instead of browsing Facebook or Instagram you could learn a language. I think this feature is new but the little light bulb icon is awesome. Lays out the rules of the conjugations and gives you important info. Of course I don’t use it as often as I should but when I do I feel like I’m actually learning! Excited to continue. Thanks Duolingo. :)
  • It is fun and very educational

    By ray the maniac🤘🏻🌟
    I like this add it teaches very well right now i’m on French. The one thing that I do not like is when it tells you to speak You could say anything and it will still processing it But it’s my only grief with this app Otherwise it’s a very nice app If you’re looking for something for another language Then you should use this
  • Why am I wrong?

    By Sedow63
    I will give this app 5 stars if it starts explain WHY I’m wrong when I miss a question. Giving the correct answer isn’t enough, I need to know why so I don’t keep repeating the same mistake.
  • iOS more limiting than Android version

    By amberAtOculus
    If you make too many mistakes on the iOS version, they stop you from continuing the lesson plan (need to pay, wait, or practice many times before lesson plan is available). Android version allows you to make as many mistakes as you make.
  • I’m loven it !

    By 😉ILS 2.0
    It is a great place to learn Spanish and I only had a short timeframe to learn it I have learned so much !! But of course that’s probably because I do 20 minutes and over of Duolingo like to start as soon as I get up and then end the day with a little bit but it pays off. I’m hoping you’ll do Duolingo also. It is such a good app! I have so many things I need to describe here like the health if you don’t have all your health then you can’t start a new lesson and you can practice to get it back. Also there’s these germs you can learn for like doing certain things and you can buy things in the shop like there’s a sling for 1000 gems that we can learn like Proverbs with I earned it at a special place you can get like bonuses by doing this many courses or something and if you think you’ve gotten through enough you can well actually if you think you know enough you can take this test to skip the course or something you can skip to the next level ! And if you don’t know what you can tap the letter no not the letter the word and it will tell you what it means so you can remember it. Again I hope you sign up for Duolingo it’s really good anyway audios(I think that’s how you spell it you know the Spanish for goodbye ha ha Ha ha ha)
  • The free version is terrible now

    By wennifer-lynn
    The free version used to be easy to use and fun. But recently it’s been so inconvenient to do anything and there’s alway the “this thing you’re doing would be so much easier if you paid for it!” It’s such a cash grab for the paid version, it’s ridiculous. I even vouched that at least Duolingo was still free even after lingodeer decided not to be and I left them a review giving them crap about it. Here’s the thing, I’d happily pay $1-2 per month for this app, but any more I can’t justify it as a broke college student. Rosetta Stone is worth it’s price, but Duolingo isn’t Rosetta Stone.

    By prncssa32
    I’m currently learning French and I’m really enjoying the lessons. Although, I wish the duolingo app would include the “Tips” like it does on the desktop version and with Spanish. Whenever I don’t understand something it just says i’m wrong but I don’t know why, so I have to go to some website or ask someone before I can know why I got the question wrong. Otherwise, I definitely recommend to anyone wanting to learn the basics of a language!!
  • Please add Arabic and Persian

    By Melio8
    How is it that you can learn Klingon and Hawaiian on this app, but not Arabic and Persian? Especially Arabic, since it’s a very popular language spoken by many. It’d be nice to add those languages because many people including me are trying to learn them
