Duolingo – Learn a New Language On Your Android Device
Duolingo is a free language learning service that I have written about a few times on Free Technology for Teachers. Today, Doulingo released a new Android app designed to help students learn a new language. The app, like the website and iOS app, provides lessons in Spanish, English, French, Italian, German, and Portuguese.
To learn on Duolingo you read, listen to, and translate words and phrases. For example if I want to learn Spanish I’ll be shown Spanish words with translations. I can can hear the words pronounced too. Then to practice I type and or speak translations. The activities start out with simple words and phrases. As I become more proficient, Duolingo gives me more challenging phrases. To help me track my progress Duolingo awards poinst and virtual badges to me when I reach a new level of comprehension.
