Google has recently released a list of the most popular apps, games and books in Google Play store for 2014. Google used the download frequency as criteria for selecting these apps. Interestingly enough, in the education section, Duolingo was picked as the most downloaded app for this year.
Duolingo is a great web tool and mobile app for learning a new language. Duolingo provides a plethora of translation activities through which learners get to practice their new language. Duolingo gamifies language learning by using a system of rewards for good achievements. It also gives learners the opportunity to translate real-world texts in the language they are learning and thus help other learners.
