5. Duolingo

Duolingo is an US based language-learning website and mobile app. Users learn using “trees” tailored to their target language, with specific “skills” to practice vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation using spaced repetition. Exercises can include written translation, reading and speaking comprehension, and short stories. As of June 2021, Duolingo offers 103 different language courses in 40 languages. Duolingo has over 500 million registered users. The company uses a freemium model: the app and the website are accessible without charge, although Duolingo also offers a premium service for a fee. Duolingo courses are built upon the concept of a “tree”. Trees are composed of skills, which focus on a specific aspect of the target language. Trees are usually split into sections, or units, containing a chunk of related skills. Skills can be vocabulary and grammatically based, but other skills relating to color, idioms, relationships, and countries are also featured in courses. Skills are composed of six levels: levels 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and Legendary. Users progress through levels of skills by practicing the lessons a certain number of times, usually 2 to 6, depending on the skill. Users also have the option to “test out” into the next level on a skill. Users also have the option to test out of entire units within a course.
