With 500 million learners worldwide, Duolingo leverages a significant data corpus to improve its effectiveness, leading to many updates and innovative features, such as audio lessons, level-appropriate short stories, podcasts, grammar lessons, and even live events. This session offers an overview of these resources and a wide range of ideas for using Duolingo in K-16 classrooms to complement your curriculum while motivating students to practice listening, speaking, reading, and writing for the sheer fun of it. Hear from Duolingo linguists, teachers, and learning scientists about the latest innovations designed to support classroom teachers and learners, and then come to one of our meet-up sessions to continue the conversation.
