Userscript's install button

This page lists unofficial third-party userscripts intended to enhance the Duolingo experience. These userscripts are not endorsed by Duolingo and may cause unforeseen problems, so exercise caution before installing them.

If you experience a problem with a userscript deactivate it immediately, and try to contact the author of the script directly to see if it can be fixed.

Note: Duolingo may ban users for using scripts that break their Terms of Use or Guidelines [1].

Use userscripts at your own risk.

How to install scripts[]

Scripts can installed in browsers using tools such as Tampermonkey  (be careful to install the Tampermonkey extension and not the Tampermonkey application) or Greasemonkey .

Scripts can be installed from Github by pressing the 'raw' button on the script's page.


Script Description
Duolingo Advanced Learning Gives additional field in «Write this in English» exercises, hides the sentence in your target language, lets you write what you hear and only then translate into your native language.

This boosts the development of both auditory, writing and listening skills. It's a must-have!

Installation guide and more info: userscript's discussion .

The userscript is being constantly supported by the author and is completely functioning as for 7th of May 2019
