When learning a foreign language, students can often benefit from using a range of study materials. Download the Duolingo app and your child can practice his or her foreign language skills anywhere! This incredibly versatile app has received rave reviews from such notable publications as The Wall Street Journal. It offers lessons in French, Spanish, German, Italian, and Portuguese. International students can also benefit from this app, as it offers English lessons.
Duolingo even offers learning incentives for children. Your student can earn Lingots, a virtual currency, by completing lessons and moving on to the next level of intensity. Lingots may be used to customize the app.
