2024 DET Update: New Interactive Writing question

Beginning April 2, 2024, the Duolingo English Test is adding a new Interactive Writing component to help improve the assessment of your writing proficiency. Interactive Writing expands upon the pre-existing Read, Then Write question by encouraging you to elaborate on your ideas.

First, you will read a prompt and write about it for 5 minutes. Next you will read a follow-up prompt related to the original one, then write about that new prompt for 3 minutes.





Interactive Writing will contribute to the overall Duolingo English Test score. More specifically, it will contribute to the Literacy and Production subscores.


5 minutes for step 1

3 minutes for step 2

You will be able to see the current step’s question as you write.

During step 2, you will be able to see your initial response.

Proofread carefully! Do not click NEXT until you have checked your response for the current step and are ready to submit.
