Teachers, Duolingo has a lot for you.

Howdy, language educators around the World! As you may already know, Duolingo is much more than just another language app on your students’ phones. There is a Duolingo community, Duolingo Bots, Duolingo Stories, etc.

This time we wanted to tell you something about the Duolingo Forums.

For some time now, HelpfulDuo has been creating posts dealing with topics that may be helpful for anyone learning Spanish, Portuguese and Japanese. There are grammar posts, vocabulary posts, language usage posts and even seasonal posts! We encourage you to have a look at them as they might be helpful for your classes or as self reference for your students.

Here is the link to the summary posts to each language where you can find a interesting list of topics we have covered:

We also recommend HelpfulDuo's posts for ESL teacher who are teaching English to Spanish, Portuguese and Japanese learners:

Tell us how it went! Have you used any of these posts in your lessons? How?

Will you be doing one for French in the future? Thanks


I have looked at some of the Spanish and Portuguese posts—I think actually a lot of the ones for people learning English from these languages—and I found them helpful.


It would be great if we could assign individual assignments to individual students instead of as a whole :)


But, bot is so not really good. They are doing copy, browser the topic. They dislike very much topic, and the topic has no people can find, and some topic I can find because I read an other topic and find that topic. I wish forum does not have bot.


Hey in our country, bot is really a disaster, users of Duolingo feel bored and nobody likes bot. People think bot is a bad hacker, I think that too. My friends share with me: Maybe they won't use Duolingo in the future, because the bot.


Yes, I agree. I think bot always mislead forum rules of duolingo, and are accepted by duolingo. Bots do weird things, and they can hack other people 's nicknames, and the forum rules say that hackers cannot be used. One person now is my friend, and he said: My nick has been hacked by bot-news-duo and don't mess with them, otherwise hacked. This is a link of him: https://www.duolingo.com/ThienAn095


i use duolingo on my computer to learn french for school but i do not know how to get duolingo bots can you download then on to your computer or can you only get them on your phone ?


Duolingo Bots is a feature built in the IOS (iPhone, iPod, or iPad) app - it is not available on Android or Web (Duolingo staff says they are trying, though)


Yes, it is. I use it myself both on the web as on Android


I would like to know how you are using on web and android. I checked the bots.duolingo.com and it is only on the Apple app store


what iuse it every day


I would like to know how can duolingo help my students that are native Spanish speakers.


Hello! Are your students who speak Spanish wanting to learn an additional language? You can setup a Duolingo classroom (www.schools.duolingo.com) and arrange that students who speak Spanish learn French, English, German, etc. Here's a link to a list of languages Duolingo offers to Spanish speakers currently: https://www.duolingo.com/courses/es


Thank you again for this great app. My students love it. I introduced a new class to it today, and a student came up and asked me if he could do it for fun over the weekend. I said sure!


That's so wonderful to hear! Sounds like a great way to earn extra credit. ;)


I am not a Teachers,but to all of the teachers out there, you guys are awesome.


Using posts is a great way to teach our students how to improve their pronunciation!


That's a pity that Duo speaking exercises are so bad!


im not a teacher but you guys ARE AWSOME!!!!!

¡No soy un profesor pero ustedes SON IMPRESIONANTES! Eu não sou um professor, mas vocês são incríveis !!!!!

I need email for contact Duolingo for help in Portuguese, please. It last a long time for change from one lesson for other, I dont like lost time. Then I need help.


Hello, @NairRosade, thank you for writing in for help. Can you tell me a little bit more about the issue you're having? If lessons are slow to load it may be an internet connectivity issue. When possible, please take a screenshot of any issues you're having and submit them via a bug report.

Here's a link that outlines how to report issues to Duolingo staff. https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/sections/200864570-Reporting-Issues

The Duolingo Help Center is also a great resource for finding support assistance. https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us


Dear friends, when I started with Duolingo I wanted to learn German from English, then I found out there was the possibility of creating classes with Duolingo for schools. Since I am an English teacher I have created a class on Duolingo for schools but I am afraid I cannot manage it properly Might it be because my first registration was for German? I would be interested in giving stories assignements to my students but cannot manage. Could anybody help?


I love this website! I am not so good at Spanish and this is helping me a lot! I really like all the things you can do! I love Duolingo sooooooooo much!


Thanks. Will you be doing one for Italian in the future?


Is duolingo dangorous


I have used Duolingo School for my ESL classes since its creation. Up until now, I had no trouble.

With my new groups for this school year, the account creation isn't working. All the students get the same user ID ("None") and some even have the same password. I have read the setup guide to see if anything has changed, but nothing is supposed to be different.

Am I the only one with this issue? Help!


I have got a problem with my second classroom as well. The first one works really great, but the second one, for which i got new passwords, don't work. None of them. I allready asked in another discussion, i hope i get the answer quickly... Thanks already, because i'm really enthusiastic about duolingo!


I haven't been receiving weekly progress report emails for my classes for a few weeks. I need to be able to view actual points earned each week, not just see if they have completed the assignment, and trying to do the math on each individual profile is quite tedious. Help?


Thanks for addressing this! Please contact the teacher support channel email, teachers@duolingo.com. There was a Duolingo updated conducted that briefly affected progress reports for teachers. It should be fixed now. Please email into the teacher's support team if you still have this issue or if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you!


Hi, can Tiny Cards be used to teach students? e.g. setting a challenge? Thanks


how can i get classroom?duolingo says my email is not a Duolingo user yet.. should i wait?


Hi, I have a question, how can I send my students notification when they don't complete a task?


I would like to use Duolingo Bots now, please give me the link to download app?

Before that, would you like to give me the introdution of this? I would like to read it aigan.


Duolingo Bots is not an app, it is simply a feature in the IOS app, not Web or Android.


Ben DUOLINGO'yu çok sevdim.Çünkü çok şeyler kazandım. Her kese başarılar!!!
