‎"The cleverest business model in online education." Why thank you, MIT Technology Review.

“You could imagine something with programming, maybe finding bugs in software as part of a course,” he says. “We may try it.”

I am intrigued...


Nice! Congrats for the great review Luis. I have to say - Duolingo has really been working for me. The article mentions that Duolingo takes you to an intermediate level... I wonder if you have plans to take it further?


Yes, we're always working on this!


I agree- it really is working for me too. Thanks!


A good review of the model. Congratulations.


Congratulations Luis to you and your team.

Congratulations that Duolingo has been selected for an MIT review. Two things crossed my mind while reading the article: 1. about translations: "Multiple students translate the same sentence; software compares those results to settle on a final translation."; as of now the "final translation" is the "wisdom" of fellow users, isn´t it? 2. Maybe Luis could provide us with some background of his ideas about Duolingo on the Duolingo blog. Thanks.
