About this Episode

Today we're joined by Burr Settles, Research Director at Duolingo.

Most would acknowledge that one of the most effective ways to learn is one on one with a tutor, and Duolingo's main goal is to replicate that at scale. In our conversation with Burr, we dig how the business model has changed over time, the properties that make a good tutor, and how those features translate to the AI tutor they've built. We also discuss the Duolingo English Test, and the challenges they've faced with maintaining the platform while adding languages and courses.
