    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The government of Guatemala and the developers of  Duolingo software, designed to facilitate language learning, have signed an agreement that will allow students from 97 public schools to learn English.

    The Ministry of Education announced at a press conference the signing of the memorandum of understanding with Duolingo, an online system created by Guatemalan Luis von Ahn, which has around 12 million users in America and Europe.

    The inventor of the software “Captcha” and “Recaptcha” which was sold to Google for millions in 2009, said via Skype during the press conference that he created Duolingo while “thinking of the education needs of Guatemala.”

    The agreement will facilitate access to the English language to high school students from 97 schools.

    The Ministry of Education also said that 250 teachers will receive training from Duolingo.

    Von Ahn, who in 2012 received the award for Outstanding Young Scientist and Engineering in the United States from President Barack Obama, and is listed as one of the most outstanding minds in the world according to magazines. (ACAN-EFE)
