Duolingo is one of the coolest ways that I’ve found to learn a foreign language! There are loads of foreign language choices and it takes very little time out of your busy day. Plus, it’s completely FREE to join!
You have to sign up to join, and you can do that using your email, Google, or Facebook. Then it will ask you to set up a password. After familiarizing yourself with the website, you can begin with the first lesson, or, if you already are somewhat familiar with the foreign language, the program will let you skip to higher levels. However, before the program will let you go to the next level, you have to pass the short tests. Because the lessons incorporate hearing the text, seeing it in writing, and also requires you to type in short phrases or sentences, you’ll be fully “immersed” in whatever language you’ve chose to study.
So far, the lessons that I’ve completed take about 10 to 15 minutes, so I’ve been studying Spanish during my lunch break. I only started a couple of weeks ago and I’m already finished with the first three lessons. It’s a fairly convenient and easy way to learn a new language!
Let me know if you decide to start this program; I’d love to hear what language you’re going to study.
