in Ireland UK? Dont have any English language
pro?ciency certi?cate like IELTS or TOEFL? Also
presently not able to appear for the tests as all
the test centres in the country are temporarily

very good alternative available for IELTS, TOEFL

UK Ireland that is Duolingo English test. This
test is an alternative to other English
pro?ciency tests like IELTS or TOEFL but more
convenient, less costly, more ?exible, fast
results and accepted by many universities. Many
institutes in Ireland like Gri?th College, Dublin
Business School and many universities in the UK
also will be accepting the Duolingo English test
as English pro?ciency proof instead of other
standard tests due to the situation caused by the
COVID '19 pandemic. Let us further understand in
detail about the Duolingo English Test (DET).

WHAT IS DUOLINGO ENGLISH TEST?
Duolingo English test is the online
computer-based testing system for measuring
English pro?ciency of the non-native English
speakers. It is a 60 minutes test where a student
can appear anywhere with just having a computer
and decent internet connection. It is an adaptive
testing system in which the next question will be
asked on the basis of performance in previous
questions. The di?culty level of every question
increases with every correct answer given. It
will properly evaluate your pro?ciency depending
on your ability. After completing the
scienti?cally proven Duolingo English test
students can get their results in just 48 hours.
The plus point is that with the preparations of
IELTS and other traditional tests also you can
appear for the DET.

HOW IS DET DIFFERENT FROM IELTS OR TOEFL?
  • Let us understand the di?erences between DET and
    other traditional testing systems,
  • One of the best bene?ts of DET over IELTS or
    TOEFL is that you dont need to visit the testing
    centres instead, you can appear at your home in
    a quiet, well-lit room with a good internet
    connection.
  • Cost for DET is almost 1/4th of that you pay for
    the other traditional tests. It costs only 49
  • dollars (3720 INR) against 180-200 dollars
    (14000-15500 INR) for IELTS and TOEFL.
  • It is a very short duration test of just 45-60
    minutes whereas IELTS and TOEFL take around
  • 2-3 hours. In the case of IELTS, it is given in
    the period of 2 days.
  • You will get your test results within 48 hours of
    giving DET whereas in IELTS and TOEFL
  • it takes around 10-20 days for test results.
  • Before appearing for the main DET you have the
    facility of appearing for multiple mock tests to
  • get an exact idea of the testing system which is
    not available in case of IELTS or TOEFL.

WHAT ARE THE CONTENTS OF DET?
Duolingo English Test is divided into 3 sections
with di?erent duration slots Quick Setup In
the ?rst 05 minutes of the test you will be
introduced to the DET and various rules and
requirements. Adaptive Questions For next 45
minutes, there will be sets of questions which
will test your listening, speaking, reading and
writing skills and abilities which is the main
section as your grades are majorly dependent on
it. As we discussed earlier adaptive questioning
will be done to test the pro?ciency on the basis
of your ability. Video Interview Last 10 minutes
will consist of a video recording of the answers
given by you for the questions displayed on the
screen. Based on your test performance you will
be given a topic on which you need to write for
around 3-5 minutes.

testing systems as they give an overall score for
