2015 - Online language-learning service Duolingo raises $45 Million to take on Busuu
Free language learning service Duolingo has raised a $45 million investment round led by Google Capital. Duolingo says its free language learning tool currently has over 100 million users worldwide. More people are now using it to learn languages in the U.S. than in the entire public school system, the company claims. Over 100,000 teachers have also registered for the company’s free platform for schools. “Duolingo’s mobile-first, adaptive, and gamified platform is changing the way people are learning languages across the globe,” said Laela Sturdy, partner at Google Capital. “We were blown away by Duolingo’s growth and engagement numbers, and we’re thrilled to partner with them as they shape the future of education.”
