Clean UI, easy to use for both students and educators
Duolingo is great for both educators and students. As a teaching tool, this software is very helpful for tracking student progress and even in the classroom to review lessons and get motivated with the many animations, daily goals, adding friends, statistics, and achievements. I enjoy how vibrant the software is and accessible on any device including web and mobile. Not a fan of advertisements while learning but they can be removed with a paid plan. Also, I think it may be beneficial to add video lessons for better comprehension or review, however this can be compensated by teaching within the classroom.
How I Use It
Duolingo for schools is free for classrooms, includes learning standards alignment such as ACTFL and CEFR, fun assignments matched for each student's pace with AI, and clean UIs for student overviews and student progress insights. Duolingo also offers professional development resources with many videos and slides for working with Duolingo in the classroom and materials for teachers, parents, and administrators. Along with an educators network and opportunities to support other teachers to use Duolingo, there's plenty of opportunities to use this software in teaching.
