Homeschooling 1 student

Is there a simple way for my student (daughter) and I (the mom and teacher) to share an account using just one email? I would like to use the program too separately from my daughter. Thanks!

No, you have to have two separate emails. iCloud is very useful for your children. You can have a family account with sub-accounts. It's quite easy to set up.

If you want your progress to be tracked separately from your daughter, you'll need two accounts.

Many email providers will let you do a variant of your email address by adding "+" then another segment. For example, if your email address is "elmo@gmail.com" you can sign up for another Duolingo account using "elmo+student@gmail.com" (the 'student' part is totally arbitrary... you can put anything there and your email provider should still send it to your main 'elmo' email address). Might be worth giving that a shot, then set up a classroom from your main email address, and add the variant as a student.

I hope that clears it up, but I could see if that would be a bit confusing. Please let me know how it goes for you!

I just created a homeschool classroom for my 2 daughters and when I created an account for them it gave me the option of not needing an email address for them. It auto-generated a username/password.
