Here at Duolingo for Schools, this is one of our favorite things to geek out about. We love making learning enjoyable for students!
One way that Duolingo has committed to student motivation is through gamifying learning to make the process of learning a language more fun for students. Students earn experience points that they can use to show off their skills, or Lingots and Gems, which they can use as currency to deck out Duo with snazzy new outfits.
We’ve also compiled specific tips and strategies for staying motivated that we hope you’ll be able to implement with your students. In particular, we recommend offering your students specific, tangible goals that they can use Duolingo to hit, so that they see the direct connection between the work that they are doing and the language they are trying to acquire.
