Do you ever need a place to escape? Do you like to expand your mind? Do you like to learn useful phrases like, “she doesn’t eat fish, but she eats chicken?”
I escape to duolingo Italian.
I expand my mind there.
I learn useful phrases such as, “she doesn’t eat fish but she eats chicken.” And other phrases that are, in fact, useful.
My favourite words are are the question-y things. Duolingo says I’m 47 % fluent in Italian. Nobody really knows what that means, but in my opinion, it means that I can speak almost as well as a small child, but with a Canadian accent.
But. That’s pretty good. It’s 47% more Italian than I knew three years ago. And three years ago, I couldn’t have held a conversation with an Italian four year old.
So that’s something.
I always wanted to learn Italian, because I FEEL Italian. I’m kind of noisy, and fun and I drink wine. I yell. And dance and love parties. But wait…I am stereotyping. Let me be clear. That’s what I think Italians are like.
But I’m not even close to Italian, I’m a homogenized Western European UK blend.
Check this. Duolingo is FREE. As in, doesn’t cost money. Nothing doesn’t cost money any more. Don’t worry, duolingo is NOT paying me for this commercial.
