I have used Duolingo a couple of times and it is very good.
I love doing quizlet. I find it very fun to learn in a fun way. Even flash cards are great.
I have learned a lot from doing quizlet while doing it in Humanities last year.
I love using Duolingo and Peak! I’ll be sure to check out the other apps!
