Pearson Brings Duolingo to College Students

Pearson partnered with the Duolingo app to give college and university students more opportunities to learn foreign languages. Beginning this fall, Pearson will develop content for the app as well as courses that are aligned with Pearson’s e-textbooks and print materials. Initial language courses will cover Spanish, French, Italian, and German.

“Duolingo is already used in over 300,000 classrooms worldwide,” says Bob Meese, Duolingo’s VP of business. “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.”
