Pearson and Duolingo announced a partnership to provide college and university students with a fun, simple, and effective way to learn foreign languages. Beginning this fall, institutions and educators can offer their students a personalized language learning experience featuring high-quality content developed by Pearson, and delivered to students using Duolingo’s award-winning platform. Duolingo is the most downloaded education app worldwide, with more than 200 million users.

“Through our partnership with Duolingo, we will combine complementary expertise to increase access to highly personalized and mobile language learning experiences. Our shared goal is to help improve students’ academic performance while preparing them for today’s global workforce and opportunities that require multilingual skills,” said Paul Corey, managing director, higher education courseware, Pearson.

Pearson and Duolingo will produce courses in Duolingo that are aligned with the content in Pearson’s popular e-Textbooks and print materials. Spanish, French, Italian, and German courses will be supported this fall. Students will be able to access these specialized courses in Duolingo on iOS, Android, and the web after purchasing their course materials.

“Our users love the way Duolingo makes it easy to fit language learning into everyday life in a way that is effective and fun,” said Bob Meese, vice president of business at Duolingo. “Duolingo is already used in over 300,000 classrooms worldwide. We’ll greatly increase this usage by aligning courses in Duolingo with popular course materials from Pearson. With the curriculum expertise of Pearson and Duolingo’s gamified teaching methods, we hope this partnership sets a new standard for the future of higher education.”

“Duolingo is a fantastic out of class supplement to any foreign language curriculum. It engages students in a variety of language practice modalities and supports their language learning progress,” said Anna Szawara, lecturer, University of Illinois at Chicago.
