Nifty language learning app Duolingo is expanding on its usefulness by adding another course for English speakers. Android users can now click on the green birdy app to learn how to say new words in Dutch. The option is accessible along with all of the other courses, which you can see in the screenshot below.

For people who aren't at all interested in learning this particular language, the latest Duolingo update still comes with an added perk. The team says it has reduced the app's size by 20%. Many phones these days come with storage space to spare, but there remain more than few handsets in circulation that would benefit from this type of optimization. This also makes the app more tempting to download over a cellular connection. At the end of the day, it's a nice improvement.

What's new:

  • Op uw plaatsen, klaar voor de start, af! (Ready, set, go!) We've added a Dutch course for English speakers!
  • Smaller is better—we've reduced the app size by around 20%
