A popular reason to cancel Duolingo Plus is that they simply don’t think it’s worth the money. At around $10/month for some countries around the world, it may seem like a low cost but if you feel like the extras you’re getting aren’t worth the money, then there’s no point in keeping the premium language learning subscription anymore. Cancel it and move on to something else. This is a similar reason why people want to know how to cancel their Onstar services.

They’ve gone through all of the available courses on Duolingo, and are forced to move to another platform or offline classes to continue their education.
