Is the Duolingo language proficiency test not free anymore?

Hi fellow freelancers!

I am new to Upwork, just migrated from Elance. I am trying to get the blue mark of verified fluency in English, which is essential to bid on certain jobs.

I just accessed the Duolingo test center and I could not find an option to take the test for free. Since I am an Upwork user, there may be another way to have access to the test, through Upwork, so I can take it for free.

Could you guys guide through this??

Thank you for the answers!!

I don't think there is a free option any more.

 

I think it was originally free because Duolingo was offering it for free, not because Duolingo had some kind of special arrangement with Upwork.

I heard that it's only 20 USD. That's not much

Esther, taking the test is not a guarantee that you'll the "blue mark of verified fluency in English". I took the test and I don't have the badge. Anyway, it shows under "Certifications".
