Amanda Lopez, from the Philippines, has shared her adorable love story that saw her meeting the man of her dreams, Rob Ciesielski, based in the US, through the app. 

In a blog post, Amanda revealed she joined the app in 2013 to learn more Mandarin, but didn’t meet her husband until 2021. 

The couple developed their own love language through the learning app as Rob continuously congratulated Amanda on her achievements, ultimately leading the two to fall in love and tie the knot.

Rob joined Duolingo in 2020 and he was immediately smitten with  Amanda’s profile. 

He saw how successful she was with her learning and kept congratulating her on her achievements.  

After exchanging a few messages through the app, the lovebirds ultimately connected on Facebook. 

The two began to text and video chat each other, despite being in totally different time zones. 

And while they dreamt of visiting each other, due to COVID travel restrictions, the pair were limited to technological talks. 

However, the lovebirds finally met in person last summer and sparks flew. 

‘We’ve come quite a way, from calls to video chats to care packages sent halfway across the globe to virtual family introductions. And where our relationship is now will only continue to expand,’ Rob said. 

Amanda and Rob got married in January and have the language-learning app to thank for bringing them together.
