2024 DET Update: New Fill in the Blanks question

Beginning April 2, 2024, the Duolingo English Test is adding a new Fill in the Blanks question. This question assesses the depth and breadth of your vocabulary. It doesn't just assess that you know a word, but that you know how to use the word in context.

Fill in the Blanks will contribute to the overall Duolingo English Test score. More specifically, it will contribute to the Literacy and Comprehension subscores.
