Abstract

The research was carried out at SMP IT Al-Hafit Pekanbaru involving 58 students in the 8th Grade as the research sample. This study uses quantitative research methods with the ASSURE model (Analyze, State, Select, Utilize, Require, and Evaluate). The result obtained from the use of duolingo in class VIII.1 on speaking and listening skills of the "t" value with df 31 at the 0.05/5% level is 2,042, while the results obtained from using duolingo in class VIII.2 for speaking and listening skills of the "t" value with df 27 at the 0.05/5% level is 2,052. The results of each ability show that the students’ speaking ability of class VIII.1 is 5.5> 2,042 and their listening ability is 4.48> 2,042. The students’ speaking ability of class VIII.2 is 5.17> 2.052, while their listening ability is 5.10> 2,042 (the "t" table is each greater than the "t" value). This demonstrates that the use of duolinggo to improve speaking and listening skills in junior high school students is proven to be effective.
