How to verify my identity
Hi All, I've just taken my first Duolingo certificate, 3.96 and pretty chuffed. Next to my name it says in brackets "identity not verified" is there a way to get verified so it doesn't appear on my next certificate Thanks
Verified certificates aren't available yet. But there will be verified and strongly verified(!) certificates in future.
But I don't think any of duolingo certificate will be equivalent of officially accepted tests like TOEFL/IELTS, DELF
Verification of identity for a test can only be considered if it takes place in an official exam center, where somebody can check your identity card and make sure that it is you (alone, and without assistance) that takes the test. Duolingo is exploring ways to do that but it is not available yet. Maybe in the future they can make some agreement with local schools, so that one can take an official duo-language certificate.
Here we are, three years later, and Duo still won't put our names on the tests. Would you at least let us post the results on LinkedIn?
