Connect with other teachers, ask questions, and learn how Duolingo for Schools makes it easy to enrich your curriculum and motivate your students!

Building on the efficacy and success of the original Duolingo platform, Duolingo for Schools, created for schools and universities alike, augments any curriculum, giving students content designed to promote long-term retention, while providing teachers with creative ways to differentiate instruction, increase engagement, and keep students learning on any device, both inside and outside the classroom.
