Lesson

A picture flashcard matching exercise

An exercise is any one of the individual speaking, listening or translation tasks that make up a lesson, practice, or test. Each lesson or practice consists of several exercises.

There are a number of different types of exercise, each one aimed at helping users learn in a different way:

  • Translation: You are presented with the text of a sentence in one language and are asked to translate it into the other.
  • Transcription: You are presented with the audio of a sentence and are asked to type it out.
  • Speaking: You are presented with the text of a sentence and asked to speak it into your computer's microphone.
  • Fill in the blank: You are asked to choose the correct word or phrase to complete the sentence.
  • Multiple-choice translation: You are asked which (at least one but possibly more) of several sentences in one language is a valid translation of a sentence in the other language.
  • Picture flashcard translation: You are presented a word in one language and are asked to translate it into the other language with the help of a few relevant pictures.
  • Picture flashcard matching: You are presented with several words and corresponding images in one language and asked to choose which one matches a word in the other language.
  • Sentence shuffle (mobile only): You are presented with several words and have to rearrange some or all of them to form the correct sentence.
  • Character Challenges -  You are asked to translate or answer a question by a Duolingo character [1]. This may change the answer depending on gender/context.
  • Conversation Challenges - You are asked to respond to a Duolingo character.
