Spanish teacher information?
I am a Spanish teacher and would really like to use duolingo in my classroom more. Is there any way to get a list of the content for each level without playing each one and writing it down? I love duolingo so much that I would do it myself but I'd love a shortcut!
Also, would there be any teachers interested in working together to come up with some classroom activities that go with each level? Maybe reading selections, conversational activities, or videos from youtube or something?
Do you use Duolingo via the app or the website?
The quickest way I know of to find out what's in each lesson is to test out of as much as you can with the gateways, then test out of each 'skill' beyond the last gateway rather than doing the individual lessons - there are only thirty-five beyond the last gateway, and you can test out of each skill, so that's effectively only thirty-five lessons after the last gateway. If you're a Spanish teacher it shouldn't take too long! :-)
Once you've opened up a skill by reaching it or going past it (coloured or gold, not grey), you can access the lesson contents.
Website: go to 'home', then click on a 'skill'. That takes you to the skill's page, and there, you can cut-and-paste the words in each lesson, and (in the case of Spanish) the grammar tips relevant for that skill, if any.
iOS app: you'd need to test out of all the skills in the same way, but then when you go back into the skills you can see the words Duolingo teaches in each lesson. However, there are no grammar tips on the app yet.
Android: no idea, but probably pretty similar, although they've got some useful features that iOS doesn't.
Note: the Vocabulary feature is suppposed to be coming back during early May sometime, so keep an eye out for that.
Thanks! I didn't realize that information was there. I've done most of the skills already but hadn't noticed that. I still wish they had something more printable or something all on one page.
Currently, the site is set up for individual learners, so it isn't so important. However, there was, a while back, some talk of new feature(s) that might be designed for, or helpful for, class teaching. It is conceivable that if Duolingo intends to implement class functionality, they might add something of the sort, or that (eventually) there might be a sort of teachers' resource page.
Watch this space, I suppose. :-)
I have captured the lesson material on 33 of the DL skills and I continue to add to them as I complete a new skill. I have these located at http://quizlet.com/in2languages along with a large number of Spanish practice sets. Scroll Dn to the Duolingo section at this link.
