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:
- Yo is more than a statement yelled out by Rocky.
- It’s surprising to me that almost anything can drink milk (bebe leche).
- Yo no hablo espanol
- Very rarely does an English word translate into a Spanish word by adding the letter o to the end.
- 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.
