Studying one languange while teaching another one

Hi! I'm an ESL teacher and I'm at the same time using Duolingo to learn German. I find it very inconvenient that I can't do both things in the app. While I'm logged in in my account in the app I can just see my progress as a student but I have to go into the browser and log in again to check my classroom's progress. It'd be much easier if they made a switch button teacher -> student and student -> teacher. Anyone having this problem too?

The issue is that the apps don't currently have "teacher functionality". On the website however, you will be able to easily switch without logging back in again.

Happy learning!

That's my problem, they SHOULD have the "teacher mode"

Ah, I misread your post. My bad. :)

That is a great idea, and I'm sure something a lot of teachers would like to see. The apps have not seen a lot of the same kindness that Duolingo for Schools web has, so hopefully something is in the works. In the mean time, i recommend discovering how the browser you use on your phone/tablet, allows you to save passwords. That way, you can save a little bit of time by not having to log in each time you need to switch.

Save passwords-Google Chrome for Mobile

Save passwords-Safari for iOS

Happy learning!
