Duolingo introduced a NEW READING SECTION into the official test on March 30, 2022.
This course does not yet cover the tips for that part of the test.
It gives tips for all other parts of the test, but not for this one.

The test is still 1 hour long – they have not changed the length of the test.
1. Introduction and onboarding ~5 minutes
2. Adaptive test ~45 minutes
3. Writing Sample and Speaking Sample ~10 minutes


This change also means that the number of other tasks from the test has changed!

Read and Complete, Read and Select, Listen and Select, Listen and Type, Read Aloud: 4-6 times each

Write About the Photo 3
Speak About the Photo 1
Read, Then Write 1
Read, Then Speak 1
Listen, Then Speak 2
Writing Sample 1
Speaking Sample 1
The Interactive Reading sections are 7-8 minutes long and there are two of them, so it means this new part takes around 15 minutes of the test.



*** The description of the course that follows below is before the changes to the test were made. ***


  • “This is a very complete introduction to Duolingo Test. Teacher Elena is an excellent teacher.”
  • “Thank you so much Elena for this course! In my opinion, this course not only has important information about the test format and the rules, but it also gives valuable tips and a piece of advice which I couldn’t find anywhere else! Elena goes in detail through each task from the Duolingo test, explains the approach to them, and gives recommendations on how to improve the score in each task and the total.
    Highly RECOMMEND!”
  • “If you are preparing by yourself, this course gives the idea of how to prepare for the test and achieve the desired result!”

    Duolingo English Test Preparation Course – if you don’t know anything about the Duolingo English Test format after this one-hour course you will know everything. It is perfect for first-time test-takers, but also for those who already took the test and did not get certified results.

    In this course we go through:

    1. All the tasks which are in the test – I give you examples and special tips for every single one
    2. The rules of the test – so you immediately get certified results
    3. The major differences between Duolingo and other popular tests, like IELTS and TOEFL

    You don’t need to spend hours searching, reading texts and watching videos in order to learn everything you need to know about the test – you can now do it in less than 1 hour and save your valuable time.

    Plus, in the additional materials, you have a quiz that will help you recap all of the essential info from the course.

    So, one more time, this is what you will learn in just 1 hour:



    Did you know there are 12 tasks, meaning there is a hidden question that is not on the practice test? Or that in one task only one specific spelling is allowed? We go through the entire test, so you will know exactly what to expect. I will give you tips for every single task.



    Did you know that lot of students fail the test the first time? Or that you might even get banned from taking the test ever again?
    We go through what you CAN and CAN NOT do, so you get the certified results immediately – this saves you a lot of time, energy as well as money because you do not have to retake the test, plus pay to take it again.



    We cover 3 key differences. Also, we look into how you can potentially save hundreds of dollars if you chose the Duolingo Test.

    Finally, you have a bonus video and a PDF booklet with a lot of useful additional facts, as well as a unique quiz!

    As already stated, this course is perfect for first-time test-takers, but those of you who already took the test could benefit from it, as well!


How long do I have access to the course materials?
You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Can I take my courses with me wherever I go?
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
