Invitation to Participate: Learning Yiddish on Duolingo

Sarah Biskowitz

The launch of Yiddish Duolingo -- one of the most popular language learning apps -- created a buzz in the Yiddish community and Jewish world more broadly. Almost ten months later, we are wondering: What motivates people to learn Yiddish with Duolingo? How have Duolingo Yiddish learners experienced the app? Are they interested in community engagement, and if so, what kind? How can the Yiddish world better serve them?


If you have studied Yiddish on Duolingo please fill out the survey below by February 6th and let us know!

*** Editorial Update*** Due to an overwhelming response to this survey (thank you!) we have decided to close the survey early to enable us to process the results we already have. Stay tuned for future surveys!
