The Duolingo Test Center -- Fair Language Certification For All

36m ago

Millions of people worldwide can't apply for jobs or schools because they can't afford to! We're taking a stand against this at Duolingo, and here's a video we just made about it.


For decades, the language certification industry has been comprised of a small number of corporations that charge fees representing up to an entire month's salary for some test takers. Many are also forced to travel long distances to examination facilities available only in select major cities. The Duolingo Test Center app was created to allow anyone to certify their English skills from home, on their mobile device, and for only US$20 -- that's less than one tenth of the price of similar tests, regularly priced at US$250. Even buying a new smartphone and taking the Duolingo test will provide a more financially viable option for most.
