Hi Duolingo, I have a question about the eligibility for your back to school contest. I'm an English Language Development Teacher in California and I'm wondering what you meant when you wrote that "foreign" language teachers are eligible? Can't any language be foreign depending on what your perspective is and what language you learned first (or second, etc.?) I'm asking because I noticed a lot of teachers in California (myself included) who work with a lot of students who have immigrated to the US and are using Duolingo to support their students in learning English have entered the contest, and I just want to make sure our classrooms qualify. Also, just a thought, you may want to consider using the term "world language" or something else because "foreign language" can be offensive. -Annie "Eligibility: The Duolingo Back to School Contest (the “Contest”) is open only to Kindergarten through 12th grade teachers of foreign languages at a U.S. or Canada-based school"
I think Duolingo is an amazing tool and I have used it for myself as I prepared for my current position here in Mozambique Africa. I wish this was open to people like me. We are a Canadian based organization working in rural Mozambique where less than 30% of women can even read. We are not only teaching them to read but to speak Portuguese which is a foreign language to them but is the language of business here.
I entered the contest, but the link sent to me from Duolingo sends me to a page on which the Vote button does not work. Just thought you guys may want to know in the event there is a glitch! Thank you so much for this opportunity for teachers & our students after already doing so much for our language learners!
Hi. I know this is really off topic but it would be nice if a admin could answer. When will you be making more moderators? Duo needs some. Can you explain these new changes for mods more clearly for me? I get confused. Thanks.
