You can take the test on a laptop or desktop computer with Windows or macOS.
The Duolingo English Test will not work on a Chromebook, iPad, tablet, or cellular device. The test also does not support the Chromium or Linux operating systems.
While we have had test takers successfully complete Duolingo English Test using Windows 7, Microsoft discontinued Windows 7 support in 2020.
Technical assistance and software updates to Windows 7 are no longer available from Microsoft. Likewise, the Duolingo English Test cannot actively support or provide technical assistance for Windows 7 users trying to take the Duolingo English Test.
For most Windows 7 users, we recommend moving to a device with Windows 11 or a Mac. If this is not possible, we recommend upgrading to Windows 10.
