I propose that, for languages that are taught at both the AP level in High School and on Duolingo, there be a separate AP prep course. For Spanish, French, Italian, German, and Japanese (coming soon), after completing the skill tree there should be a way to prep for the AP exams in May on the website. For example, if I am planning on taking the AP French Exam and I have already completed the skill tree, there should be a way to take practice tests, do audio practice, reading practice, and hopefully speaking practice all without leaving the Duolingo website. This might involve some deals with Collegeboard, tho. Thoughts?

That seems like a really good idea, I'm just not sure if that's something Duolingo would actually consider.

Interesting idea. Perhaps this could be something you could purchase from the Lingot store.

I believe that this is a good idea, but not necessarily one that duolingo would plan to realize. There are already (in my opinion) too many domestic problems in duolingo that need to be fixed before thinking about branching out and adding more content. Otherwise, if you really need help, there are official AP practice test booklets that you can buy. I used the French one which contained two practice tests and a lot of tips and tricks. I'm not sure if CollegeBoard would be willing to let duolingo publish much of the same type of material for free access online as this would devalue the "official" AP guides.

This is a great idea, especially as KhanAcademy is the official test prep for the SAT. College Board could do a similar deal with Duolingo.

I think it's a really really good idea!! It could follow an AP outline that you would similarly find on the test (which is pretty much what you said) so anyone taking it can train to get a 5
