Nuestras rojas elefantes beben fresa leche


I’ve been trying to learn Spanish for a few weeks now. Instead of paying for the Rosetta Stone materials, which I understand is extremely helpful; I opted for the free language-learning app called Duolingo. On this app, a happy owl leads you through lessons titled basics, phrases, food, plurals, animals, possessives, etc… and allows you to learn in a game like setting on your phone, varying the questions to keep it interesting.

Here are 5 lessons I’ve learned while trying to learn Spanish with the Duolingo app:

  1. Yo is more than a statement yelled out by Rocky.
  2. It’s surprising to me that almost anything can drink milk (bebe leche).
  3. Yo no hablo espanol
  4. Very rarely does an English word translate into a Spanish word by adding the letter o to the end.
  5. This would have been a lot easier 20 years ago.


However, through the tenacity of the owl, I’ve made it to level 5 on Duolingo. If any of you have any tips on the Duolingo app or in learning Spanish altogether, please share.

Adios. Nuestras rojas elefantes beben fresa leche. Lo siento.
