Duo_PencilBoarding.pngDuolingo for Schools is a dashboard right inside of a teacher’s Duolingo account that allows them to create classrooms and assignments, and to follow students’ activities.



  • Teachers create classes and add students in order to monitor and assign assignments.
  • Students earn XP (gamification) by completing the activities such as completing a lesson or reading a story.
  • Skills are separated into relevant vocabulary and grammar required for each communicative function (greetings, ordering food, etc).


Students Over 13:  CAN create an account using the SD72 Microsoft Account with informed consent.

Students Under 13:  Teachers create a class, add students (anonymously) and share out the SPECIFIC join link for each student OR the class code with anonymous student login credentials.
