  5. Student with existing account…


Student with existing account cannot register for my class.

I have students who already have used Duolingo on their own. Now I need them to register for my class; however, some of them are having trouble. How do I walk them through registering for my class if they already have accounts?

The best method to add them if they have an account is by providing your classroom code to the student.

If they have issues entering the class at that point, write teachers@duolingo.com. I'll ensure that they're added from there.


Have your students click on the blue silhouette in the upper right corner (or their avatar).

Scroll down to "settings."

Click on "progress sharing."

Input your classroom code.

That should do it! Post other questions as you have them.


Have they verified their email address?
