How to search for a friend?

I can't find the option to search for my buddy that I want to monitor and make sure he does his duolingo daily. How? Please help.

ps: he doesn't have facebook so thats not an option.

Hello, do you want to search by username? Duolingo has an inbuilt function for that. Just go to "Home" and you will see a leaderboard on the right hand side. Below that you will see several options like invite search facebook and search. Search is what you want.

I think you are looking for Teaching module .... I read in past Duolingo have plan to lunch Teaching module where you can keep track of students/buddy progress .... you can view this post http://duolingo.com/#/comment/70666

Thanks for the reply. I'm currently following 3 people but it seems like the follow people search option went away. I'm just trying to search for a friend by his user name and make sure he's not bs ing me when he says he's practicing his English. But I can't find that option anymore....

If you know his username, just adjust the URL. Your username URL is http://duolingo.com/#/gebroida , his would be whatever he signed up with.
