THIS FAT OLD LADY’S IT’S ALL ABOUT ME MONDAY – DUOLINGO

No, I am not being sponsored by Duolingo (or anyone, for that matter, just fat old me here).

Duolingo is FREE.

FREE, FREE, FREE!

It is a wonderful website where you can learn other languages.

For free.

I’m learning Spanish.

Ever since moving to California, I have wanted to learn Spanish.

Growing up in Michigan, in high school I took 2 years of French, which seemed practical with Quebec not very far away.

In college I took 2 semesters of German.

I have no excuse for studying German, except French was full up and I wanted to get the language requirements out of the way.

Duolingo lets you study 33 different languages – including Arabic, Japanese, Navaho, Swahili, Welsh, and now Klingon.

You can go at your own speed, and they have various companion programs to help – like podcasts, and flash cards.

It’s also a great way for people of my (advanced) age to keep those old brain cells sparking.

I don’t envision me setting the world on fire with my newly acquired language skills, but I’m having a lot of fun embarrassing myself when I try to inject some Spanish into a conversation with someone who is fluent.

Me encanta Duolingo.

(I think/hope that’s right.)
