Learn the language Duolingo is written in, the Duolingo way (almost)!

  • 2084

As I'm sure many of you know already, Duolingo has recently been rewritten in the programming language Scala, making it a lot faster than it used to be.

If you are one of those people whose love of languages extends to programming languages, you might like this site:


It is structured similarly to Duolingo's exercises, in that you have lessons with exercises where you have to type short pieces of code, and execute them to see if they are correct.

A word of warning, though: the site is geared for intermediate and advanced learners already familiar with programming concepts. And you should probably begin with the "Scala Tutorial" course.
