"Duolingo's language-learning educational services have benefited millions of people across the globe."

The multiplicity of languages is considered a dividing factor that prevents education & communication1. More than 1.2 billion (Bn) individuals are learning a language, majorly for access to better opportunities2. Digital technology may help reduce the language barrier resulting in automatic translation3. The world economy is expected to double in size by 2050 due to technological disruptions that improved productivity4. Access to education helps to reduce the poverty rate & improves living standards5.

Based in the US, Duolingo Inc is a language-learning education platform that teaches foreign languages to students globally6,7. The company provides over 100 courses teaching 40 different languages8. The company offers two courses, i.e., Basic & Plus9, along with a Family plan10. The company provides its services via website and mobile application2,7.

Duolingo has over 500 Mn learners all across the world8. In Q3 2021, the company earned revenue of $63.6 Mn, an increase of $18.3 Mn (40.4%) from Q3 2020 ($45.3 Mn)11;p18. In Q3 2021, the company’s monthly active users (MAUs) stood at 41.7 Mn, whereas MAUs in Q3 2020 stood at 37 Mn11;p18.

The company’s paid subscribers in Q3 2021 were 2.2 Mn, whereas paid subscribers in Q3 2020 were 1.5 Mn11;p18.

Duolingo has established a platform “schools” in which the teachers create classrooms & assignments to provide language learning to their students12. Moreover, the educators can provide specific skills or leanings to a particular student12. Apart from this, educators could also track their students’ activities, i.e., time spent on learning, number of assignments completed, etc12.

Duolingo is providing language-learning education to millions of people globally with its content. The company is helping reduce the communication barriers through its language courses on digital platforms.
