How can I add my own kids to my account?

I'd like to add my kids as they are still too young to have emails of their own. How can I do that?

June 25, 2015



If they are too young to have an email address, are they old enough to be using Duolingo? There can be a lot of spam and occasionally some of it is obscene.

If you really want them to have their own trees then you can make up an email address (they are not checked in any way).


No I don't think the rules have anything against age. Even all the mods encourage the kids to use Duolingo, so I think it should be okay.


There's an age limit for email addresses? I have three kids (8, 5, and almost 3) and they all have email addresses. My older two do Duolingo and we just have it set up like a regular classroom on the Teacher Dashboard.


How did you do that? I tried, but it didn't work.


Does anyone know how to do this? The ensuing debate about whether children should use Duolingo does not help me with HOW to add them.

  1. Create email addresses for them on GMail, Yahoo, or whatever.
  2. Create a classroom: https://schools.duolingo.com/
  3. Login as the child and join the classroom: https://www.duolingo.com/settings/schools
