Help us improve global literacy rates and teach the world how to read. Duolingo is the most popular language learning application in the world, with over 300 million users. We currently offer 94 total courses across more than 38 distinct languages. Our mission is simple: to make high-quality education free and accessible to everyone in the world.
Our next goal is ambitious: we want to teach the world to read. Duolingo ABC is a free app developed by learning experts that teaches basic reading writing to children ages 3 to 7. The app already includes over 300 fun, bite-sized lessons that teach the alphabet, phonics, sight words, decoding (“sounding out” words), and much more. Since initial launch, we have received an overwhelmingly positive response to Duolingo ABC. We are looking to increase our user base and expand the curriculum to accommodate older learners.
