Duolingo is a popular language-learning platform and mobile app that provides interactive and gamified lessons for users to learn new languages. It was launched in 2011 by Luis von Ahn and Severin Hacker. Duolingo offers courses in a wide range of languages, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, and many more.

The platform employs a variety of techniques to make language learning engaging and enjoyable. Users can progress through lessons that cover vocabulary, grammar, reading, writing, and listening comprehension. The lessons are designed to be bite-sized and interactive, incorporating exercises, quizzes, and challenges to reinforce learning.

Duolingo utilizes gamification elements, such as earning points, leveling up, and receiving virtual rewards, to motivate users and make the learning experience more engaging. It also includes features like streaks, where users are encouraged to maintain a consistent learning habit, and a social component that allows users to compete with friends and share their achievements.

Duolingo offers both free and premium versions. The free version provides access to the core language courses, while the premium subscription, called Duolingo Plus, offers additional features like an ad-free experience, offline access, and progress tracking.

Overall, Duolingo has gained popularity for its user-friendly interface, effective language-learning methodology, and accessibility across multiple platforms, including mobile devices and web browsers. It has helped millions of users around the world in their language-learning journeys.

Duolingo Facts

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Duolingo statistics come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
