Meet the Duolingo Verified Streamers!

Hello Duolingo learners,

We have partnered with Twitch to showcase streamers from around the world as a resource for language learners. For those of you who don’t know, Twitch is a live streaming platform that allows viewers to watch others play video games, paint, cook, or do any of their favorite hobbies in real time. Viewers are able to interact with the streamers through their chat to comment and ask questions.

You can check out our new channel twitch.tv/duolingo

duolingo-twitch

Why?

Many language learners find that exposure to a variety of media like books, movies, and music enhances understanding and enjoyment of a new language. Watching someone talk as they cook, play video games or paint is a fun and interactive way to expose yourself to languages and to connect to people all over the world.

Who are the streamers?

Duolingo streamers are Insiders (part of the Global Ambassador program, just like Hosts and Contributors). They are not language experts, nor are they language teachers. They are multilingual, or learning a second language, and encourage their viewers to practice the languages they know in the Twitch chat. These are people who agreed to share their regular stream with us to offer our community a way to engage with foreign languages. They want to provide somewhere fun for you to listen, practice, and learn your chosen language. You can learn more about some of our verified streamers here and see if they are live here.

What kind of content will be streamed?

Duolingo streamers offer a variety of content like cooking, art, video games, esports, travel, and more. Some streamers may incorporate Duolingo lessons into their stream, while others might cook with recipes in other languages, or try speaking foreign languages with locals as they travel.

We hope you enjoy this new way of complementing your learning. There is no right way to use this resource—whether you set it up in your calendar as a study session or leave the stream on for company while you are cleaning the house, we think it will be beneficial to your learning goals. Let us know your thoughts and ideas around this in the comments, we’d love to hear from you!

>> Visit the Twitch channel now <<

Please note that you have to jump over to the streamer's channel to chat directly with them. Also, a reminder that Twitch is intended for audiences 13 years or older, and might contain some mature language.

If there's ever a competitive gaming section i'm sure im going to learn tons of profanity lol

July 25, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JoshSellsGuns

There are times where I am convinced that Counter Strike is a better way to learn Russian than Duolingo. Especially if you want to learn profanity.

July 25, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-K_F_C-

middle school is the place to be when you want to learn profanity in any language.

July 29, 2019

I'm in middle school and so far, no cussing!

August 9, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Molly28547

People at my school think the C word isn't profanity.

Drives me crazy, ya know.

July 30, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/wiskoj

If it's the C word I'm thinking of, its much less profane depending on where you live.

You from Down Unda?

August 3, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Reykjavik_Review

Windrammer: If you were talking to me, then yes. It is used ENDLESSLY here, but it's still regarded as vulgar.

August 7, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Reykjavik_Review

If it ends in 'nt' then it's the most profane word we have in the English language. Just because some people use it so much that it's not effective anymore, doesn't somehow elevate another word to stronger swearing status. I'm yet to hear a word that is regarded moreso as swearing than that, except maybe the N word but that will probably always be attached to a race thing so people won't be able to use it as a general insult like PewdiePie did that time haha.

July 28, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Molly28547

In that you are right. I remember in my Spanish class at school, there was a kid who would rather learn Russian. My Spanish teacher: "Yes, this is Ru--NO! OF COURSE WE'RE NOT IN RUSSIAN! laugh"

July 30, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nina624226

I agree, I tried learning a language at school but couldn't concentrate on writing lines in a book doesn't exactly keep the brain occupied. Such a good app!

DayZ Is another good way to pick up some profanity.

How cool is this? I'm not a gamer (AT ALL - they bore me to tears) but I know I'm in the minority. I would be super interested in some other topics like cooking and travel and can't wait to check them out.

I took an initial peek and while I don't know my way around Twitch yet, this person was streaming (I didn't have to click on anything -- she was just there). Check out the Duo plushie and sticker on her bookshelf :D :D :D

July 25, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JoshSellsGuns

I am a gamer but I still think I'd be more interested in seeing the cooking and travelling thing.

July 25, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sea-mist

that's what I'm wanting to see too. I dont want to watch gamers

July 28, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jairapetyan

Same here. And I'd like to hear the commentaries in a language other than English.

July 29, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sara_Green358

Hi Lrtward, We actually do have streamers in other areas of interest! Check out Jaystreazy and CJayride, our travel/culture streamers, and Toastie202 is a cooking/real life streamer. Meet our streamers here.

July 25, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jairapetyan

This Twitch thing looks great but unfortunately at this time doesn't offer anything for me, because I'm not interested in gaming, and the few streamers who do culture do it in English. I watched Jaystreazy in Japan for awhile and it was fun to walk around with him virtually, but he spoke in English the whole time, except for about 15 seconds when he switched to French. I hope you'll find more collaborators who speak other languages than English, and who are interested in things other than gaming. Great potential.

July 29, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sea-mist

oh I got excited about this new thing but there is no speaking German streamers who arent into those games. Now Im feeling a bit disappointed

July 28, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/toggitang4

Here were my ideas back in 2016: Duolingo plushie, Duolingo sticker, Duolingo Magnet, Duolingo T-Shirt, Duolingo Hat, Duolingo Necklace, Duolingo socks, Duolingo flashcards, Duolingo pens and pencils, Duolingo eraser, Duolingo 3D printed mini models, Duolingo mouse pad, Duolingo video game, Duolingo board game, and Duolingo bracelet. Ooofda I had lot's of ideas, and later they have some of them!

July 25, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Saturngirl

YES! The Duolingo store is lacking in so many things! I would buy lots of these items, if available!

July 30, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AllisonSummer

Same, honestly.

August 3, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cathyhevey

I think those are some really great ideas, you should try emailing Duolingo your ideas.

July 25, 2019

Okay! Yah maybe I should do that.

But how do I use a mousepad on my cell phone?

July 31, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/yellowcrash10

If you use Android, connect a Bluetooth mouse to your phone and use it with the mousepad. Or get a USB OTG adapter and connect your phone to a wired mouse.

I'm not a gamer (AT ALL - they bore me to tears) but I know I'm in the minority.

:( I definitely think you're in the minority there.

That's cool how much Duo stuff you can see in the Twitch stuff. Thanks for the pic, Lrtward!

July 25, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RogerMarsh0

I'm another minority weighing in. Been there briefly - Rather boring and consider it another major time-waster.

July 26, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Einat162

Another minority weighing in.... was somewhat a gamer in the 90's... As a kid, you have more time and patience for these things (Sadly, my fave game- original Rayman - was borrowed and returned to me faulty after an illegal burn, with no background classical music).

Been thinking about starting twitch with anylazing Hebrew online articles (since they don't Hebrew up there). But what's the point- if Duolingo learners can't find it ? :-(

I can see Duolingo's growing quickly! I'm guessing they'll have a school and campus in the future! And seriously a whole community!!! I'm surely exited 'bout this!

That's one of the things excites me! (Twitch)... But never even heard of it!

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JimThibaul

I do not understand ? I am not a gamer and do not have time for games it looks like Twitch is for gamers and I can not figure out where I would find any useful learning material

July 26, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Einat162

It's unofficially a gaming stream platform, but what it actually means is for Twicher users to stream their hobbies - and in Duolingo's case it means you can interact with a native speaker via chat (or just listen in). The person who streams can read a newspaper or a book in the target language.

When you have a native streaming, it's like a class with a teacher - but you don't have to worry about not doing your homework.

July 26, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HoldenLee2

Haha! Good description. I do like how it isn't just about video games but like you said, people can stream their hobbies or just chat. I'm not too familiar with Twitch so I forgot about that. I'm still learning about the site, I guess.

July 26, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Einat162

Same. They don't offer a lot of languages available on Duolingo. There must be some way for them to verifey a native speaker who isn't too young and uses only slang or bad language (bad grammar or cussing).

July 26, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dpatkat

I just watched and see mostly gamers, too. But because I like cooking shows, a search by Food & Drink found a few in that category. To twitch its own. But not for me.

July 28, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MarcoMachern

Same thing here

July 29, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HoldenLee2

If you don't enjoy video games, you probably won't find it too useful. Of course, I do think it expands the options Duolingo users have for more exposure to their language of interest. You can also interact via chat with the streamers. You should try watching some streamers, like mickanplays, and see if you like it.

Dia dhuit! Noticed Irish wasn't on your list. I would love to be considered to showcase Gaeilge on your Twitch channel.

July 25, 2019

Duolingo is open to children of all ages. Twitch is not child-respective. Okay for Twitch but If the language there is not allowed in Duolingo, then please rethink. No, please leave it and don't sign a contract.

One minute in, the guy started talking about sextoys/dildos when I was watching :/ The stream has a tag saying "family friendly" so I'm not 100% sure how they define that right now.

-MobiuS

July 26, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Comfy_Cat

Twitch is not family friendly... Don't let Duolingo pull you in to that absolutely vile website. My advice = stay away. There's plenty other resources that are better.

July 27, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MobiuS_360

Oh for sure! At the moment I'm not looking for any resources anyways, not until I actually start learning a 3rd language at least. But when I do, I'll just use my same methods for my second language :) The best resources are probably YouTube and Discord for me to be honest.

July 27, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sea-mist

that sounds awful. What I find strange about it is that it will appeal to the children being mostly about games yet is a completely not suitable place for kids to be, I used to hate my children even as teens to be around swearing.

Hi sara, I don't know if you're actively watching this thread but I see you jumping around a couple comments so I figure I'll ask anyway:

What are the requirements to be partnered with Duolingo for twitch?

Unironically asking for a friend kinda thing. I am not a twitch streamer myself nor do I have the time/resources to do it haha. But I am very curious! Is there a guideline you guys were working by or was it kinda random-ish?

July 25, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sara_Green358

Hi Josh,

For our initial streamers, we sought out streamers based on a multitude of factors, including their language abilities, community engagement, and number of followers. We don't have set requirements, since we are searching for quality rather than quantity, and therefore our streamers span a variety of different languages, content types, and follower ranges.

July 25, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ednoria

The first stream I go to listen to, and they are talking about doing weed and shrooms. LOL.

July 26, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lightning_11

How is Twitch different than Youtube?

July 26, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MatthewTzeng

Twitch is more focused on the aspect of streaming than Youtube. All content, even videos (they're called highlights on Twitch), are from a stream. You can't upload "edited" videos to Twitch. All content comes from live streams.

July 27, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BastianWhite

Hi Duolingo, How do other people become a streaming ambassador? Although I have done a lot of vlogging and streaming on youtube, I could easily do so on Twitch instead, especially to spread language.

I would be able to host in German, as it seems most are hosting in English? Then also practice and speak Spanish, how do I get involved?

August 5, 2019

July 25, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Reykjavik_Review

Exactly what do you mean by not many sources? There is literally hundreds of thousands of hours of legitimate German content out there, and if you want to be able to interract with the person, there would be tonnes of YouTubers who livestream in German... I mean if you can't find sources in German then definitely make sure you never move on to anything that resembles an obscure language.

Could you try to verify Russian streamers? That would be awesome!

July 26, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/holdredial

There is no shortage of Russian streamers on Twitch, same with Brazilian Portuguese. Just try "Browse" and click on "Add filter +" and filter by "Russian".

They aren't "verified", but Duolingo has not defined that term or explained why it matters. Maybe it means they promise to keep the content family friendly?

I didn't find Twitch streamers particularly useful for language learning though. Lots of brief snippets of mumbled dialog on so-so quality audio. YouTube has much more to offer in terms of listening comprehension, and even their dumpster fire of a comment section offers lots of opportunities to learn slang.

August 2, 2019

THANK YOU. If Duo + Twitch isn't a waste of time, then I don't know what is.

    I tried to post this in the Twitch chat, but it keeps getting erased. I get nothing but error messages when I click on anything in Info. And I can only see one video. Is this a Twitch app issue?

    July 26, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sara_Green358

    Hi, what exactly did you try to post in the twitch chat? Our twitch chat mods do not allow link posting, inappropriate language, or other inflammatory or soliciting messages.

    July 26, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/zanzaboonda

    Lol I literally just posted that I was getting error messages. Nothing even remotely close to inappropriate. :P (I'm a GA and would never. )

    "Erased" was the wrong term for me to use. The entire chat is constantly blank for me. Everything disappears after closing the app. I'm looking for help. I really want to use this and participate, but I get tons of error messages.

    E.g.: Webpage not available The webpage at http://bit.ly/DuolingoAbout could not be loaded because:

    net::ERR_CLEARTEXT_NOT_PERMITTED

    Webpage not available The webpage at twitch://open?link_click_id=683020271267608349 could not be loaded because:

    net::ERR_UNKNOWN_URL_SCHEME

    I've sent feedback to the app developer (using the official Twitch app) but haven't received a response. I was wondering if anyone else was having the same issue or if that's anything else I can do. Would appreciate any assistance. Thanks!

    July 26, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Einat162

    Not be related- but I think most people (?) who are gamers themselves (?) are using a computer, and not mobile ... I've used a very old laptop when I saw the news about this & watching twich (motherboard from 2007, Xubuntu linux).

    I hope Twich will be paying attention to your report (didn't know it was also an app!).

    July 27, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/zanzaboonda

    Me, too. Thanks! I've reported it two different ways but haven't heard back. However, I think the problem is specifically with Duolingo's channel, as I tested it, and it's working for others.

    I like video games, but I usually enjoy watching people play more. This is right up my alley. :)

    Hi Osandpo! If you go to our team page (twitch.tv/team/duolingo) we have channels broken down by languages. All the streamers on those channels speak the language primarily or secondarily.

    July 26, 2019

    Helpful Duo, I believe that this new initiative is a GREAT IDEA!!! I have not been able to answer lesson questions that ask me to use the microphone prompt to check if I can pronounce words right.

    Also, I would absolutely like to converse with another language lover in real life so I can learn more about them and test my language skills!

    Edit: I just joined Twitch and it was AMAZING!!! It's just like live youtube, but it's live from around the world. Would definitely recommend!

    Welcome to all efforts to encourage or enhance our self-study.

    My personal version of the twitch tv use described here is to type in keywords for my target language on YouTube and the web. I discover static and live events, news, and live weather reporters. Some examples are France 24 which offers news and stories in French, English, and Arabic. For German, I visit DW for current affairs, to watch live it recorded interviews.

    I'll take a look at twitch tv. Reluctance is only because it requires installing another app and concern on my part about data needed to live stream.

    You can always do that on the Twitch (any hobby, not just playing video games)- but you won't be one of Duolingo's promoted ("verified") streamers.

    There are many native or fluent speakers of languages they don't have verified streamers of.

    I think this would be a nice way to start a language practicing group, if people were to be able to find it. If you were doing Italian lessons, I'd join your stream often.

    Maybe if you get enough people interested, you could do a quiz that your chat can participate in, or something akin to that.

    Not unless it's a reasonable question for what the discussion is about.

    Well, that's not true. If they have a question related to the thread they can comment here, but otherwise, it would be best if they put it in a new thread. Have a great day!

    @Potatoagen1 I understand what you mean, I don't think DL Officials are ignoring it or hate it, but if they don't have an answer for you, I don't think you'll get one. One other thing: They can only put up a language if there are at least two people fluent in it who are willing to put hours of their day in everyday for months. And those people have to be volunteers who won't get paid. Have a great day!

    well,you should see from our point of view and the frustration we get from Duo. There are more than 1,000 threads about Farsi, and absolutely none of them were answered by a Duo's officials. They just ignore it, as they hated the language or the people who are speaking it.

    When there in absolutely no open topic by Duo officials, where should I put the question? Where? Is there a place when A Duo official opens an topic saying: Hey people, Duo here, We want to hear you! Talking with Duo is harder than making an appointment with Kim Jun owl or whatever his name is!

    P.S : Kim jun oul is the DICTATOR of North Korea and I am not implying anything!!!

    Just put is in the Duolingo forum and don’t complain. If Duolingo hears you they hear if you, if not they don’t. So complaining won’t do anyone good.
