Gamification poured into every lesson.

Read, Listen, Speak

Each lesson includes a variety of speaking, listening, translation, and multiple choice challenges.

In-Lesson Grading

Instantly see which answers you get correct. When you miss a challenge, we'll quickly show you how to improve.

Streak Count

Duolingo motivates you to stay on track by recording how many days in a row you spend learning a language.

Hearts

Hearts keep your lessons alive! You lose them when you answer incorrectly. When you're out of hearts, start over and try again.
