The Duolingo English Test (DET) is a modern language proficiency tool designed for today’s international students and institutions. It offers an English proficiency score, video interview, and writing sample in an accessible, efficient, and secure testing experience.
It is a convenient and affordable English proficiency test that can be taken online, on demand, anywhere in the world and it is accepted by hundreds of top institutions.
In addition, the test helps you showcase yourself and your English ability, through a video interview and writing sample which are shared to the institution alongside your test score.
The test requires an internet connection and a computer with a self-facing camera and microphone. You should be in a quiet, well-lit room with your computer for about an hour.
Results are ready within 48 hours and you can send your score (score is valid for two years) to an unlimited number of institutions. You will receive an email notification to confirm once your test has been scored and shared.
The Duolingo English Test is completely online. It is designed to assess real-world language ability, by measuring reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. Each test taker’s proficiency is reported as a holistic score on a scale from 10 – 160.
