THE USE OF THE DUOLINGO PLATFORM IN DEVELOPING SEVENTH GRADE'S VOCABULARY MASTERY
Keywords:Application, Duolingo, Vocabulary
The motivating basis of this study was the fact that many students struggle to learn vocabulary. The study seeks to investigate the effect of the Duolingo platform on Junior High School students' vocabulary mastery. To this end, the study carried out a quasi-experimental investigation in which fifty students were assigned to the experimental and control group 25, respectively. The students in both groups were given pre-test and post-test before and after the instruction. The data were calculated statistically assisted by SPSS 24. The finding showed that Duolingo positively contributed to developing the students' vocabulary. The possible
explanation for this contribution is probably due to the relevance of the applications towards the nature of the students to require more visual material. This study concludes that the involvement of technology helps in vocabulary learning.
