Attention German faculty in USA

Looking for a colleague to conduct a new study comparing DUOLINGO with a semester of college German instruction with me. Only 2012 study available from DUOLINGO.

What did the 2012 study indicate?

34 hours of Duolingo Spanish equals a college-level semester of elementary Spanish. Would love to do a study in German.

Steven - How do you figure out the hours on Duo?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/StevenJ.Sacco

Personally, I average around 400XPs per hour.

So, about 13600 XP's on Duo equals approximately one semester of college level Spanish?

Don't know yet. That's why I want to conduct additional studies. DUOLINGO is making huge claims based on one study conducted in 2012.
