Duolingo Immersion 505x360 40142014 ENG

Immersion  allowed users to practice the language they are learning by helping to translate real-world documents from that language into one they already know.[1] This feature was only available for few courses (see here).

The Duolingo CEO announced in June 2015 that they have stopped developing immersion[2]. The last course to gain an Immersion tab was the English for Romanian speakers course (which reached beta phase on 2014/02/04). Around December 2015, Duolingo started an A/B test to evaluate Immersion.

After much speculation,  Immersion was withdrawn on 19th January 2017[3].
