How to Access Duolingo Words on an Android?

One of the core parts of language learning is building vocabulary. Duolingo helps you learn new words through its lessons and activities.

However, some users, especially more advanced learners, may want to access Duolingo’s full vocabulary list directly.

Unfortunately, the Duolingo app on Android no longer has an easy way to see the complete vocabulary.

This guide will explain why, and show you some alternative methods to access or export the Duolingo words list on your Android device.

Why the Full Vocabulary List Isn’t Visible in the Duolingo Android App

Duolingo actually removed the ability to access the full vocabulary list within the Android app in an update released in 2020.

So it is no longer possible to see the complete list of words directly in the mobile app.

Duolingo likely did this to encourage learning words through the lessons themselves, rather than just memorizing a list. The app still shows you new vocabulary words as you progress through the levels.

However, this change understandably frustrated some users who relied on browsing the vocabulary list for study. If you want to export or view the full list, you now need to use workarounds.

Method 1: Use the Duolingo Website

The easiest way to access the vocabulary list is by using the Duolingo website instead of the mobile app. The website still allows you to see the complete list of words for any language course.

To do this on your Android device:

  1. Open your mobile browser (like Chrome).
  2. Go to the Duolingo website by typing
  3. Tap “Log In” and enter your Duolingo username and password.
  4. Select the language you are learning.
  5. Tap on the “Vocabulary” tab to see the full list of words.

You can browse all the words here or use your browser’s inspector tool to export them. The list may be very long, so exporting can make it easier to study.

Method 2: Use Third-Party Duolingo Vocabulary Apps

If you want access to the vocabulary list within a mobile app, some third-party apps offer this feature by syncing to your Duolingo account.

Here are some options:

  • Tinycards – Made by Duolingo, it creates digital flashcards from your vocabulary.
  • – Build custom vocab lists pulled from Duolingo.
  • Duolingo Vocab Browser – View and drill vocab words.
  • Brainscape – Turn Duolingo words into interactive flashcards.

Most of these apps are free to download. They will prompt you to sign in with your Duolingo account and then provide tools to view, study, or quiz yourself on the vocabulary.

Method 3: Use Shared Duolingo Vocabulary Decks

Another option is to use shared vocabulary decks from sites like Anki and Quizlet. These are flashcard decks created by other users from Duolingo’s vocabulary lists.

To find shared decks:

  • Search the site for “Duolingo” or the language name.
  • Filter or sort results by most popular.
  • Preview the deck to check it matches your Duolingo course.
  • Download or import it into the site’s app.

Then you can study the words using the site’s tools like digital flashcards, practice quizzes, games, and more. Studying shared decks is free on Quizlet but Anki requires a paid subscription.

Using Duolingo’s Built-In Tools

While the Duolingo app itself no longer has the full vocabulary list accessible, you can still utilize the app’s existing tools and features to build your vocabulary:

  • Pay attention to the vocabulary tips during lessons – these highlight important words and phrases to know.
  • Use the discussion boards to ask other learners for vocabulary advice.
  • Enable push notifications to receive daily reminders to practice.
  • Follow the lesson path carefully without skipping ahead to systematically build up your vocabulary.
  • Use the progress quizzes to identify weak vocabulary areas needing review.
  • Enable advanced settings like listening exercises and slower speaking speed to improve comprehension.
  • Make use of the tips section – the grammar and word bank notes provide useful vocabulary context.

You won’t see the full word list, but rigorously working through Duolingo’s structured curriculum maximizes vocabulary gains within the app itself.

Studying vocabulary takes time and repetition. But you’ll retain words better if you engage and stimulate your brain in different ways.

So be creative in how you practice new vocab beyond just memorizing lists. Associating words with images, sounds, and experiences will boost retention.

And take advantage of Duolingo’s lessons themselves – they are designed to teach words in context, which aids learning. Just supplement with vocab lists for an extra study boost.
