Duo Lingo is a very unique website. While fairly new to the site, I have found it very easy to use. It is now the program I use to brush up on my own foreign language skills. Duo Lingo offers multiple languages for the user to choose from; Spanish, French, German, and Portuguese to name a few. If you haven’t seen this website, here is the link:
Each person creates their own free account, and in that account your daily progress is kept track of. It allows you to take a placement test to see if you test out of any skills, or start with the basics. You can set difficulty levels anywhere from easy to hard. The program alternates the user typing and listening in the lessons, between the foreign language and English. It’s good for people who do well with hands-on activities rather than text books. You can also download it as an iPhone or Android app through AppStore or Google play. It makes it easy to take with you wherever you go.
Whether you are brushing up on your own foreign language skills, or wanting to teach students a new language, Duo Lingo is a great tool to use.
