How do I download lessons?

Only Duolingo Plus users can download lessons. Note that this is only available on mobile devices with the Duolingo app.

 

iOS Devices

To download unlocked skills (i.e. colorful circle shaped icons on your main screen):

  1. Tap the icon of the skill you would like to download (e.g. Activities).
  2. Tap the download button on the skill pop-up.
  3. When the download is complete, the download button will turn into a checkmark.
  4. You can then go offline and complete your offline lessons in the app. 

         

 

To download locked skills (i.e. greyed out circle shaped icons on your main screen):

  • Tap the blue down arrow on the lower right hand corner of the greyed out skill icon you would like to download.
  • When the download is complete, the blue arrow will turn into a blue checkmark.

 

Android Devices

To download your offline lessons, head over to the Plus tab (rocket ship):

  1. Choose the course you'd like to download in the 'Available for Download' section, click the Arrow icon. 
  2. You'll be prompted to choose if you'd like to auto-update with wifi or wifi/data.
  3. You can view download progress (%) in the Plus tab or in your device's notification menu.
  4. Once successfully downloaded, the course will be in the 'Downloaded' section. 
  5. You can then go offline and complete your offline lessons in the app. 

            

Some things to note:

  • To toggle between wifi or wifi/data, click the Gear icon in the Plus tab. 
  • For Android devices, the course will auto-update with new content for offline use. To stop a course from auto-updating, please click on the circle/square icon. That will stop the download process and return the course to the 'Available for Download' section. 
  • To remove a downloaded course, click the trashcan icon. 

 

NOTE: You will need a working internet connection to download lessons. You may also see slight differences across Android and iOS devices.
