Duolingo adds a family plan and new ways to learn non-Latin characters


AT The Duolingo Virtual Conference, the company says it will add a family plan to its app, as well as new games and puzzles to help people learn languages ​​that use non-Latin alphabets, like Japanese or Arabic. One of the main new features is a tab that will appear for certain languages ​​that shows users a grid of letters in an alphabet, along with the sounds they make. (If you’re an Android user, the feature might look familiar because it was available on that platform, but now it’s coming to iOS and the web.)

the family plan will give six people (the subscriber, who becomes the family manager, and five others) the benefits of Duolingo Plus, which includes no ads, unlimited hearts, mastery quizzes, and more. It costs $120 per year, which isn’t bad compared to the Individual Plus plan, which costs $80 per year when paid annually, or $12.99 per month, though there’s no there is no monthly payment option for the family plan.

Duolingo says the ability to press symbols and hear their sounds will come to languages ​​like Korean, Russian, Ukrainian, Greek, Arabic, Hindi, Hebrew and New Yiddish (Japanese). had some of the features for a few months). In addition to the board, there will also be lessons, and some languages ​​will include games that involve tracing non-Latin characters or even building the character like a puzzle.

Exercises for languages ​​can include listening exercises, tracing characters and puzzles.

It makes sense for Duolingo to add a family payment plan, which has been Many times request by users, and new reasons to use its app as the company just went public at the end of July. As someone who bounced off the company’s lessons for Russian and Japanese, I appreciate the additional lessons for characters I had trouble learning.
