Duolingo Stories put the fun into learning a new language
What you need to know
- Duolingo Stories come to iOS for the first time.
- They're designed to make learning a new language more interactive.
- A limited number of languages are available.
Duolingo is already one of the go-to apps for learning a new language and now the iOS app has been updated with Duolingo Stories. The feature is designed to make learning a new language more entertaining and fun.
There are currently more than 100 interactive stories for learners to work through, presumably with more coming soon.
Duolingo Stories is a feature that has been available via the web for some time, but this is the first time it has come to iOS. Or indeed any mobile platform with an Android version coming "soon."
Unfortunately Duolingo Stories isn't available for all languages at preset, although some of the most popular ones are covered already.
You can download Duolingo from the App Store (opens in new tab) for free with an in-app purchase model available.

Since then he's seen the growth of the smartphone world, backed by iPhone, and new product categories come and go. Current expertise includes iOS, macOS, streaming services, and pretty much anything that has a battery or plugs into a wall. Oliver also covers mobile gaming for iMore, with Apple Arcade a particular focus. He's been gaming since the Atari 2600 days and still struggles to comprehend the fact he can play console quality titles on his pocket computer.
