How I Use It
This app allows basic facts about a language to be practiced on multiple levels of student learning abilities. Students can work at their own pace and learn in a way that should be how a language is taught. Duolingo uses images and repetition to help the student discover what words are used to piece together complete statements to get a point across.
My Take
If you are teaching a second language, this app will greatly enhance your lesson through the use of images and voiced prompts allowing your students (as a class, in groups, or individuals) to build and practice their knowledge and fluency of the second language they are learning. The approach that Duolingo has used to teach a second language keeps the students engaged at all times through constant learning, quick learning checks, and a fun gamified structure to promote engagement and interest.
