Researched & Written by

Are you learning a new language and are wondering how to join a class on Duolingo?

First and foremost, congratulations! Not everyone has the discipline and drive to explore new possibilities and acquire knowledge about a foreign culture.

I know this road can be full of rewards, but also several challenges. Duolingo is great for covering the basics and feeling comfortable with simple phrases, but sometimes, joining a class can take your progress to the next level.

This should be a very straightforward process, but sadly, I’ve heard many people complain about how enrolling can get a little complicated. This is why I’ve prepared 3 easy steps below that you can follow to join any class you want.

Ready? Let’s turn you into a fluent speaker!

Joining Classes

Regardless of what your favorite studying device is, this process should be the same. I normally recommend getting most of your sessions on a computer, as it allows you to go a little faster and there are fewer chances of making a typing mistake.

However, if you’re constantly in a hurry or simply don’t get enough time near a PC, taking the courses and classes on your smartphone is perfectly fine. Regardless of what device you’re learning from, this process should be fairly similar across all platforms.

Solution: Here’s all you need to do to take part in any class you’re interested in:

  1. Go to Google and search for Duolingo classes. Click on the first result to enter the list of classes.

Why You Should Join a Class

Now that you know how to join any class on Duolingo, you might be wondering why paying for additional education is worth it. That’s totally understandable, and a very valid question.

The main reason why you should join a class and pay for it is to increase the speed at which you progress. Sure, you can keep things free and just study through Duolingo, but joining a class and actually talking to a native speaker will be a major boost for your fluency, conversational skills, and overall confidence when speaking a language.

Especially for languages like Spanish, which can be a little tricky to learn right.

Besides, $10-20 is the equivalent of a couple of Starbucks coffees, so wouldn’t you say this is a much better investment?


Studying a new language is always exciting, but also a big challenge. It can be a little intimidating to try to learn everything all at once, especially when you don’t have the bases well-defined yet.

Joining a class in Duolingo can be very helpful for your progress, and as a nice bonus, you’ll get to meet new people in the process. There’s no downside other than having to pay a small fee charged by the instructor, but to be honest, it’s totally worth it.
