Exploring Duolingo Tools

Hola! This week, I decided that I would explore the many different tools that Duolingo has to offer. The first tool that I explored was Tinycards. This is an app that recaps your vocabulary learned from each Duolingo level. It is full of images and is a fun way to remember Spanish words!

Secondly, I explored Duolingo Podcasts. Full of various stories that are narrated in English with Spanish characters, these podcasts are an awesome way to keep your Spanish skills through listening to them wherever you go.

Lastly, I wanted to show you all the Duolingo Stories. These are short stories that ask you questions through a mini conversation. Although I have tried all of these tools, I may have to advance a bit more in my Spanish before being able to properly complete them. However, they are all great and highly recommended tools to learn new languages!

Here is this week’s video that will walk you through all of these tools that Duolingo has to offer. I also have a fellow classmate who walks through Duolingo herself this week. You can access her blog post by clicking here. Have a fantastic week!

  1. Hi Shaelyn!
    I honestly had never heard of Duolingo before it was mentioned by a few people in EDTC 300! It seems like such an awesome way to learn new languages! I really like how you can go at your own pace and review things you learnt using Tiny Cards! I am definitely going to keep this app bookmarked! Thanks for sharing and you’re doing a wonderful job at your learning project!

  2. Hi Shaelyn,
    I love the fact you’ve used so many extensions and tools that we’ve learned in class for your blog this week. Your blog looks great. I’m pleased and impressed that you’ve linked your website to another classmates, well done! This shows you like what she’s done, and you’re helping to showcase her work.

  4. I think it is so great that we can learn from each other. Even though I am also using Duolingo to learn Spanish, I did not know about their Stories feature until reading your post! I am looking forward to checking them out this week. Thanks for another informative and personal post about your learning project journey.
