By Natasha Husein on

With over 300 million users, Duolingo is the world’s most popular app for learning foreign languages. And with it’s short, fun, cleverly challenging grammar and vocabulary lessons, it’s easy to see why!

Duolingo gamifies foreign language instruction; it turns what was once a long, tedious challenge into a series of short, fun game-like activities. Cute graphics and a points-based rewards system motivate students as they learn and progress.

Behind the scenes Duolingo uses machine learning to ensure each successive lesson challenges students in the areas that most need improvement, whether that’s reading, writing, listening or speaking. The company uses A/B testing to continually improve the platform and there’s sound science showing that it works.
