If you don’t know Luis von Ahn by name, you definitely know him by his creations. He’s the mind behind CAPTCHA, reCAPTCHA and Duolingo, the world’s most popular language-learning platform.

Born and raised in Guatemala, von Ahn saw firsthand that high-quality educational opportunities were limited to those who could afford it. Inspired to change this, he created Duolingo to make language education free and accessible to everyone.

We spoke to von Ahn as part of our new series American Dreaming with José Díaz-Balart. Watch the two-part interview, or listen in the NBC Nightly News feed wherever you get your podcasts.

Day 84!

Making my coworkers laugh in Spanish on my lunch is the best part of my day. Was also complimented on my accent today, which was a lovely feeling.

As soon as 11 hits I’m like “ope, gotta do my lesson!” Never thought I’d get this far. Can’t wait to see where I’m at next year 😃
