What is XP?

When you learn on Duolingo, you earn points, and we call them experience points, or XP for short.

You can earn XP in various ways:

  • Individual lessons
  • Timed challenges, such as Match Madness or Ramp Up (Available on iOS and Android app)
  • Placement Test
  • Duolingo Stories (available in limited languages)

Please note that as we continue to test new features, the experience may slightly differ from user to user. XP is subject to change. You may also unlock certain rewards like XP boost which doubles the amount of XP earned in a specific time.
