Duolingo is awesome. I’m almost done with my first week and I’m totally hooked.
I took two years of German in highschool and I’ve been eager to get back on it. Learning a new language is a perfect way to sharpen my brain and give me insight into a whole new culture.
If you’re thinking about developing a fresh skill I’d highly recommend giving the Duolingo app a shot. The creators have really perfected the gamification of learning. Every time you complete a task you get a very pleasant ring noise almost like you’re scoring points in a Mario game or something. There’s so much simple yet satisfying positive reinforcement. It’s just awesome how much fun learning can be if educators use creative solutions instead of the bland status quo.
Wanna learn a language? Go download Duolingo! You’ll only need to dedicate a few minutes a day and you’ll be on your way to being a more kick ass version of yourself.
