Get Started Learning A Language With Duolingo

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Android, App Reviews, Free Downloads

In part 1 of this article, we looked how to download and start an account with the great, free language learning app Duolingo. Today we’ll get started by setting up the app to get you started learning a new language or improving your skills in one you’re familiar with.

Once you download the app, just hit the Get Started button.


You’ll have a wide selection of languages to choose from. Pick whichever one you want to learn. For the purposes of this tutorial, we’ll choose Spanish.


You will be asked to pick a daily goal. Pick the one that would suit your schedule best, and press “Continue.”  You can change this setting later to suit your needs.


You will now be asked to pick a path. You can either start at the basics, or take the placement test. This tutorial assumes that you have not learned anything in your chosen language, in which case you should pick the first option – “Start at the basics.” If you do have some knowledge, however, press the second option to take the placement test. The test will allow you to skip some lessons ahead. How many lessons you can skip ahead  depends on how much you know.


If you chose to start from the beginning, you will be greeted to a screen of the first topic – “Basics 1.” Press “Start” for your first lesson.


The lesson will consist of a set of questions, designed to introduce you to new words of the language and to give you some idea of the grammatical structures. Answer the questions as correctly as you can, and press “Check” whenever you are done answering the question.


After the progress bar is filled up, the lesson is complete. You will be taken to a screen that gives you a summary of the progress you have made for today. Press “Continue.”


At this point you can either close the app or choose to create a profile to save your progress. We’ll show you how to do that in part 3 of this series.
