Hi! We'd love to help support you in a training for Europe. We'd also be happy to help set up a webinar that works for EU educators.
Thanks....I'm in Europe too (France), I just created my class on Duolingo today. Would be interested in some training ... Thank you and weldone. Please keep us informed on the webinar. Merci.
Also Europe – American School of Warsaw. I'd be happy to run a workshop at the CEESA regional conference in Sofia, Bulgaria (March 16-18), for example.
Hello, Is it possible to have a copy of the webinar? I'm using Duolingo to teach in Belgium. Tx
For sure, I'm in Taipei, Taiwan...would love to join in, or at least catch up with what's going on in yonder parts of the world.
Ok cool, but I don't live in Chicago. It's just close coz you probably wont do WI.
Vermont! I've been using Duolingo for 2.5 years with students. I'd love to help out with something like this to share how my utilization of the skill has evolved over time.
M.Dantes! Amazing! We'd love to talk to you. We've had lots of teachers host trainings in their community for their peers. Please email us a firstname.lastname@example.org.
I miss the webinar that you offered on January 19. Will you be offering another one? When?
Yes, BeatrizArs- we'd like to know what time works best for you- please share your time zone and give a window. We'll be doing more open webinars like this.
I really would like to know about the webinar you had. Is there someplace I can "get it" and watch it???I am trying to have a "duolingo" class...explore class and I have implemented lots of ideas but really need some help and MORE ideas!!
Hi MaryFree1 - we can email it your way. So excited to hear that you're exploring new class ideas. What have you been doing in the classroom with Duolingo so far?
HI, just joining the discussion from Northern Ireland. Any chance I could also have a look at the webinar? Many thanks
I've been making it up as I go:). I assign some beginning activities regarding their histories and background before beginning duo lingo. Then we do a little research into some cultures. Monday's, Tuesday's and Thursday's we do duo lingo for 1/2 an hour. Wednesday's are culture days. I provide a culture activity. Friday's are conversation days and students group into like languages and practice accents, words, forming sentences, etc. I sometimes wish they had more "useful" language.., like greetings, etc. But they seem just as excited to say "I am a man" in whatever language:). I really want to give some incentives... But it is too easy for them to click on the dots and type what they see. I would LOVE to see a quiz without answers that the kids could take as a final.... Just so I could really celebrate the progress!!
Hi Kristen. I still haven't received any email. When can I expect it? Thank you!
Hi, I am Calixte Macso From Haiti. I am teaching Spanish and English at a high school. I have just created my classroom on Duolingo today. I would like to receive training unless that pleases you. Thank you and good work! Keep me informed when you are ready!

Any idea of when you're having another webinar or is there someplace I can watch it online?
Would I be able to get a copy of the webinar? I just joined Dolingo and am excited to get started with students!
Hi! I'm teaching Spanish in Sweden (adults) and I'm going to start using Duolingo Classrooms. I'm very positive about it, I'm sure it will help them a lot and it will be so fun! Greetings!!!
That is great! I studied Spanish in Sweden also (not for very long though). Berätta för oss hur det går! :]
Det går jättebra! Jag undervisar på Folkuniversitetet i Växjö. Var studerade du? Tyckte du att det var svårt/enkelt? Jag skulle vilja använda (kommer att!) använda Duolingo i mina lektioner eftersom jag tycker att det är ett väldig trevligt och enkelt sätt att lära sig språk. So, I'm very interested on using Duolingo with my students and to keep learning together! Greetings / Hälsningar / Saludos!
New to Duolingo for classrooms. Would love to know when is the next available workshop.

I just started teaching English to my neighbors who only speak Arabic. I'm using DuoLingo as my homework piece so that I can track their study habits. Is there going to be a workshop or Webinar available this fall? I have another question as well. Three of the boys in my class will be starting classes in our area High School. Is there a way that I can allow the ESL teacher to see their progress on DuoLingo as well?
I am in California. This is the first time I will be using Duolingo with my Spanish class. Could I get a copy of the webinar that everyone is referencing? Thank you!
Will you be having any training in Canada or maybe Buffalo so Canadians can attend and when will your next webinar be?
