Duolingo is enhancing the language learning experience for its users starting next month. Ahead of Duocon, its annual free online education event, the company has revealed a new learning course dubbed Duolingo Music.

The new course will allow users to learn music with bite-sized lessons. Users will be able to learn notes and tunes from the library of over 200+ songs.
“We know math and music, much like language, transcend cultures and connect people,“ said Severin Hacker, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Duolingo. “Soon you will be able to learn math and music in the same Duolingo app – all with the same fun, engaging, and effective experience you know from learning languages with us.”
Duolingo says that more than 3.6 million students in the U.S. don’t have access to music education and private instruction can cost up to $400 per lesson. With this course, users are expected to get music lessons at an affordable price. However, the pricing details will be revealed only next month upon its public arrival.
Additionally, Duolingo will also announce a multi subject experience, which will offer different products in one place. It will gather music, language, and math courses together.
In other news about the app, Duolingo released a new feature for its Indian audience. The app now allows users to learn English from Telugu. It is worth noting that the app already lets users learn languages with the help of local languages.
“Given the success of our courses for Hindi and Bengali speakers, we aspire to empower Telugu speakers with our new course, enabling effective communication and fostering opportunities that open doors to a world of possibilities,” Karandeep Singh Kapany, Country Marketing Manager, Duolingo India, said in a statement.
Other than this, Duolingo also hopped on the AI bandwagon back in March. Duolingo released the Duolingo Max paid subscription tier that offers AI features built on OpenAI’s GPT 4 model.
Duolingo Max offers two new AI features, namely, ‘Explain my Answer’ and ‘Roleplay’. The former offers feedback on your answers to help users know why and where they made a mistake. It ‘offers context-specific explanations across most exercises in the regular Duolingo app’, and the responses are generated by AI in chatbot format.
