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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MaryFree1

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!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kristinemc

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?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Smcgonigle

HI, just joining the discussion from Northern Ireland. Any chance I could also have a look at the webinar? Many thanks


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MaryLeafree

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!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MaryLeafree

Hi Kristen. I still haven't received any email. When can I expect it? Thank you!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/german16max

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!!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vivisaurus

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/normareyes77

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!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vivisaurus

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?
