FAQ[edit | edit source]

Why is English represented on Duolingo using the flag of the United States rather than the flag of England or of the United Kingdom?[edit | edit source]

According to Duolingo CEO Luis von Ahn:[4]

We chose the US and Brazilian flags because we teach those variants of the languages, because they have the overwhelming majority of the speakers, and because they are the variants that most people want to learn (sorry chaps!).
