Duolingo is the most popular way to learn a language online, with over 170 million users worldwide. It is the most downloaded app in the “Education” category on iTunes and Google Play, and the only education app to have been selected by Apple as iPhone App of the Year.
Duolingo’s mission is to make language education accessible to all. The Pittsburgh-based platform is 100% free, designed to feel like a game and scientifically proven to be effective. In fact, an independent study by the City University of New York has shown that 34 hours on Duolingo is equivalent to a university semester of language classes. Find out more on the Duolingo website.
Duolingo also offers Duolingo for Schools, a free platform for teachers where they can track their students’ progress.
