Have you ever wanted to learn a foreign language? We all took courses in high school and probably college but how much do you actually remember? Could you communicate with a new student if they were not a native English speaker?
Our world is increasingly becoming a global society. According to the United States Census Bureau, “Of the 60.6 million people who spoke a language other than English at home in 2011, almost two-thirds (37.6 million) spoke Spanish.” There is no better time like the present to learn something new or for a refresher course….and what makes a course better than being FREE and scientifically proven!?
Duolingo is free language education for the world! This program offers courses in Spanish, French, Italian, German, and Portuguese. They are currently adding new courses that will allow non-native English users to learn English and all the languages listed above!
Duolingo is available on the go from the Apple App Store and for Android users. There is even a feature to challenge your friends and see who can cover the material first. So, grab your friends and start learning a new language today!
P.S. Public voting is now open until May 9th for Doodle 4 Google! Cast your vote using the link for the best doodle in the five available age groups! I know the students involved would greatly appreciate it!
Happy Friday Friends
