What is XP in Duolingo? (And How to Find Out How Many XP You Have!)

XP in Duolingo stands for Experience Points and they are rewarded whenever a user completes a lesson, reviews a lesson, earns a Legendary level, or completes challenges like Match Madness. Your XP in Duolingo determines your language level (which you can find here!) and also can help you advance in the Duolingo Leagues.

How to Get XP in Duolingo

In order to get XP in Duolingo, you have to complete a lesson within a language course. Each lesson usually will earn you 10 XP.

I seriously would not be able to learn languages without italki (I’m taking 3 classes per week right now) try out a class and you’ll thank me later. They’re usually $9 or less!

Another way to get XP is to review a lesson you have already finished for 5 XP or choose to turn it “Legendary” and earn 40 XP.

How to Find Out How Many XP You Have

Go to your profile on the Duolingo app (which is the head icon in the middle) and you will be able to see the total amount of XP that you have earned. This number is the amount of XP you have between ALL of the courses that you have done on Duolingo.

So in my case, this adds up English to Spanish, Italian, and French as well as my courses from Spanish to Italian and French, etc.

Now the placement and style are a little different, but you can still find out how many overall XP you have earned pretty quickly:

If you want to see how much XP you have in just ONE course, you will need to use the Duome website. To do that, you will need to type in Duolingo.
