New Duolingo Max Subscription Tier (opens in new tab), the tutor consists of two functions: explain and role-play my answers. The former, as the name suggests, gives the chatbot Duo a chance to ask for a detailed explanation as to whether the answer is right or wrong if the user is confused by something in his DuoLingo initial response. increase. in the example video (opens in new tab)the AI explains why you should conjugate the selected Spanish verb in a certain way, given the context of the sentence.

GPT-4 AI The duo’s back isn’t perfect. With the new release, the lab’s OpenAI has taken the time to improve GPT-3’s chat capabilities, allowing it to generate more natural-sounding text, at least in English, similar to how people normally speak. GPT-4 can create language guides, such as using English mnemonics for Spanish words. but, as seen on twitter (opens in new tab), these mnemonic guides are pretty hilarious and not always in a good way. Duolingo admits that virtual tutors make mistakes. As such, the company is asking users to provide feedback to his AI. This feedback can be provided by selecting either the “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” emoji at the end of the Explain My Answer session.
Duolingo Max is currently in a limited rollout. AI will only be available in Spanish or French for English speakers on iOS, but a company representative said it will “expand to more courses, language interfaces, and platforms in the coming months. ”I have a plan.
