British Sign Language (BSL) isn’t one of them.
BSL only became legally recognised in the UK in April 2022, and just 151,000 people know the language. This means that 11 million people who are deaf or hard of hearing aren’t being heard.
So let’s give them a voice. Help us give Duolingo a hand, and get BSL on their app.
In 2022, the media has put more of a spotlight on the Deaf community. But there remains a general lack of awareness of BSL, and the everyday challenges faced by Deaf people in the UK.
We saw an opportunity for Duolingo to make BSL more mainstream.
Join the cause and add your name to the list of those who want BSL lessons to be accessible to everyone.
It's simple: record yourself signing your name in BSL and send it to us. We'll publish it to spread the word.
