“I can speak French”; “I can speak Spanish”
“Quel est votre nom?”; “Mi nombre es Arish”
Being able to speak a language apart from your native tongue, definitely adds an exotic appeal to your personality.
As a multilingual…
You have an entirely different vocabulary to play with.
You can communicate with the people living on the opposite side of the world.
Maybe you get to date a French woman or an Indian guy, which otherwise would have not been possible, if you didn’t share a common medium of communication.
“Knowing an extra language adds so many new possibilities in your day to day life, be it studying abroad or simply being able to pronounce those tongue twisting French wine names in that fancy restaurant.”
But what about the process of acquiring a new tongue?
Well we know it is not a piece of cake…
especially if you are encountering a new language for the first time, for things like “lack of time”,& “no people to practice with”…cause several new language learners to give up mid-way, but with the arrival of
E-learning platforms, language learning was revolutionized.
“Okay I get it, online learning is better in every sense…but which platform should I choose? There are way too many of them…& all seem pretty good to me.”
“Hmm..let’s see what Google says..”
Yeah..as expected it is the “Green bird Duolingo..!”
Well, not only because Google says so, for Duolingo was estimated to be valued anywhere around $2.4 Billion Dollars in 2020 with an astounding user base of 500 million registered users!
The platform offers 95 different courses in 38 different languages.
Duolingo also generated around $161 million dollars in revenue, in the year 2020.
So Yeah…I think it is safe to say that Duolingo is currently at the pinnacle of online language learning platforms.
To develop a language learning app like Duolingo, follow these steps:
Step 1: Gamify
Step 3: Make it platform independent.
Your app should be supported on both Android & iOS platforms.
Before making cost predictions for a Duolingo like app, you need to first equip yourself with all the required technological arsenal.
Considering all the important factors, the time period is estimated to be anywhere between 47 to 77 weeks or roughly around 11 months to 1.4 years.
Estimating the exact cost of a Duolingo like app is not practically possible, because, the cost of development depends on various factors such as:
But if we work with hypothetical figures, by taking an average development rate of $50 Dollars per/hour then we can predict a figure based of the cost breakdown below:
Stagewise Cost Breakdown:
The total cost is estimated to be anywhere between $96,000 to 157,000 for a Duolingo like app. Still, this figure is simply an estimation & you should consult your development company before settling on the final cost.
These are the few reasons why Duolingo is so successful:
To stand-out from the competition you need to:
“For you don’t want your application to fail in distinguishing between terms like ‘Sit’ & ‘S#it’.”
This also holds an opportunity for you as the voice recognition features of such applications are still far from perfect, and are still maturing with time & technology.
An application with a better voice recognition technology from the rest will not only help you stand out from the already existing competition, but it will also be a strong propelling force for your application’s overall popularity.
The right answer to the question “How Much Does Duolingo Like App Development Cost?” is “It depends.”
It depends on the various cost influencing factors as discussed above. Still, you can expect it to be around the rough estimate that we came up with, through market research & our past experiences in the app development industry. We also discussed various opportunities for developers who are looking forward to developing a Duolingo-like app, such as, scope for improvement in real time chat box & Voice recognition technology.
After reading this blog, you can expect to have developed a better understanding on what goes into developing a Duolingo-like app & also about the factors that influence its overall cost.
