I am not a teacher

I am not a teacher, but i am using Duolingo to teach english to my sister. May i use the teachers functions to see if she is doing the lessons all day?

If your sister agrees, yes.

However, there is a much easier and more reliable way to check anyone's progress.
Our personal statistics in third party website Duome:

Yours are:

You will find explanations and background information in the links on the bottom of the webpage.
The most important are:


"Yes, if your parents agree" is the right answer here (Pentaan, you are the best!), excepting the case when the sister is an adult in her country. Also, the "teacher sister" must gain an "Educator" badge from Duolingo in order to have the "student sister" in a classroom.



"Yes, if your parents agree" is the right answer here.

  1. Students have to accept the teacher's invitation to join the teacher's classroom

  2. Students can leave a classroom at any time

  3. It might also be a difference in culture and country.
    I am Dutch.
    My parents would never agree on officially checking my sister's homework in a Duolingo classroom, if she does not want to agree.
    It's one of the advantages of Duolingo's discussion forums to meet people of different cultures. And I am glad that you remind me of the fact, that in most cultures parents will make that decision instead of the child.


I did not know about that, thank you, you helped me a lot!
