    Duolingo English Test's review

    Published: 2015-02-26, by .

    For non-native English speakers, here's a way to certify your language proficiency for free

    • Brilliant design
    • Real supervisor
    • Free testing
    • Security concerns

    "Ingenious Extension Of The Hit Language Learning Tool"


    When language proficiency tests cost hundreds of dollars, Duolingo Test Center is a godsend. Aside from some security doubts, this app is perfect. With the superb design of the original, complete testing of listening, speaking and written skills, and even a real human supervisor, this tool is one-of-a-kind.


    For those who have been using Duolingo to learn languages, the interface will be very familiar. The microphone and front-facing camera are used to full effect by an actual person, who monitors the exam (presumably after you've taken it). This is a great way to get your certification without the expense of IELTS or other similar qualifications. You can even upload your results directly to LinkedIn.


    You are required to send a photo of yourself and of some ID, but there are no assurances in place that these will be kept secure. Some will find being recorded slightly invasive too.

    I am impressed. The fill in the blanks is quite difficult, but it is supposed to be a test. It wouldn't be much of a test of it was easy to pass or realistic for the majority to get 100%

    As a native American English speaker, I took the free portion of the test for fun. I passed, obviously, but I think those fill-in contextual questions were way too hard. It's hard to put together a cohesive paragraph with that many blanks and choices.
