The Duolingo English Test has emerged as a popular and convenient assessment tool for individuals seeking to demonstrate their English language proficiency. Offering a flexible, adaptive, and affordable alternative to traditional language exams, this test evaluates reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills through a computer-adaptive format. Its accessibility lies in its online nature, allowing test-takers to complete it from the comfort of their homes, eliminating the need for in-person testing centers. Here are some key features about the Duolingo English test:

  • Test Length: Without any interruption, you only need one hour to take the Duolingo English Test.

  • Computer Adaptive Test: Because the Duolingo English Test is computer adaptive, the order and level of difficulty of the questions vary with each test taker and testing session. The test differs slightly from other tests you may have taken because it is adaptive.

  • Only One Section: You won't find the same kinds of questions grouped together as in other tests. One question after the other will come up. You won't be able to predict what kind of question will be posed next.

  • Difficulty may vary: Throughout the test, the question's level of difficulty fluctuates. It is therefore normal for some questions to seem harder or easier than others.

  • Adaptive length: No specific amount of questions is required. When the grading engine is satisfied with your score, the test is over.

The fee for the Duolingo English test is around $49 USD.
