How Many Units Are There In Each Duolingo Language? (Updated)

Duolingo is a platform where you can choose out of 100 different courses and learn a new language. When you are learning a language you will have to follow a particular manner which was earlier known as the Duolingo tree and with the new update, it is known as a new learning path. Although the content between both the ways are same, Duolingo units are different for both of them. Here, we have discussed in detail Duolingo units for both paths and also discuss how many units are there in each Duolingo language.

Quick Takeaways

  • Duolingo units are the set of lessons for each of the language courses you are studying.
  • Each course has a different number of units in it.
  • The highest number of units is in the Spanish language which is 230 and the lowest number of units is in Navajo which is 7.

However, you must read till the end so that you get to know the number of Units for each of the languages separately.

What are Duolingo units on the Duolingo tree?

If you are on the old version of Duolingo you will see that your course follows a particular path known as Duolingo tree. When you go through the Duolingo tree, you will have to go through different Duolingo units. These units are the set of lessons in which you will get the knowledge of the language you are learning. There will be a lot of different units which will be focused towards a specific skill. Your units are represented by different towers which will be based on the lesson you are studying.

Thus, if you are in the first unit you will see a single tower. Whereas if you are in 3rd or 4th unit you will see three or four towers. There is also a crown system and thus you will need to get at least a single crown in each of the units which will help you to unlock the badges. You can also get a Duolingo classroom where your teachers can take your class on Duolingo.

What are the Duolingo units on Duolingo’s new learning path?

As Duolingo keeps on bringing new updates learning path was one of them. In it, the tree was removed and all the courses follow a specific path. The lessons have become much shorter and clear than the old version. Also, the lessons are arranged in a more specific manner from beginning to advanced level.

As the lessons are shorter and therefore the units have also become shorter than before. You will also find the stories under the units themselves. Earlier there was a tip page but currently, there is a guidebook in which you will get tips for the lessons you are studying. If someone is really interested in taking the Subscription plan then you can always think of gifting them the Duolingo card.

FAQs

How many units of Duolingo is equal to a semester?

According to research done by the City University of New York and the University of South Carolina. When you study for 34 hours on Duolingo it becomes equivalent to one single semester for a language degree. Also, the time taken for each unit varies with the number of lessons in it.

How much time is taken to complete the single Duolingo unit?

As the lessons are short, it only takes 2 minutes to complete them. Now if we consider that there are 75 lessons in a single unit it will take 150 minutes per unit which is approximately 2.5 hours. Thus we can say that the time taken to complete Duolingo units will depend upon the language you are studying. 

What level is unit 5 Duolingo?

When you are able to complete Unit 5, it means that you have already completed the beginner level and now will be learning the intermediate level. However, you must remember that Duolingo only helps you to learn a new language till the intermediate level and thus does not help you to get to an advanced level. Further Duolingo has stated that it is working on all the courses and soo will bring the advanced level for all the courses.
