Duolingo Skills are the colorful circles that cover the vocabulary and grammar relevant to a particular communicative function. Some such functions include phrases, travel, restaurants, and family. In essence, these are the skills that users are likely to find the most relevant when utilizing a newly acquired language.
Each skill contains five levels. To complete a level, a user must complete multiple lessons that address the content as outlined within the Duolingo Skill and grammar concepts that are appropriate for the level at which they are learning.
In these lessons, students practice language competencies such as reading, writing, speaking, and listening. The percentage at which they engage in any one of these skills varies depending on the level of their course. While a student who is new to a language may engage with more reading, an advanced student will spend the majority of their time speaking and listening.
