Any way to disable the Word Bank for students?


June 10, 2020



You can’t specifically enable or disable the word bank on Duolingo for Schools. However, as long as students are using Duolingo on their browser (not on the mobile app) there should be a button in the bottom center of the screen with the text “Use Keyboard”. Students can then type the translation and switch back to the word bank if they want to by clicking the same button again.


I'm specifically trying to prevent them from using that. :) I don't think that clicking on text is very helpful in regards to learning. Take for example: idioms. This just forces them to put the words in the right order. They don't learn how to spell the words correctly and they don't really learn the idioms either.
