- Extended Audience Group
We asked 20 adults (m/f) ages 30-45 years about their languages skills, goals, and if they ever considered installing a language app such as Duolingo.
All participants were selected randomly.
“I have considered using an app to learn a language, but I have never actually installed one because it seemed silly to me.”
“I always wanted to learn Spanish and travel to Spain, but I never did. I never considered language apps as a useful option.”
“I would be more interested in learning how to hold up a conversation rather than learning how to write the language, so I don't think an app could help with that.”
“I never used an app because
I don’t feel confident that it would help me.”
“An app is more convenient than a book, especially when travelling, but I haven’t actually installed one before.”
“I did speak Spanish in college,
but never used it as I didn’t really have anyone to practise with. I do not have a smartphone.”
