Week 2 of Learning Spanish

Hey guys! I had no idea how difficult it was to learn a new language, though Duolingo is a breeze, trying to memorize the spelling and pronunciation of some words can be challenging. Though I had originally thought I would be posting a video every week, I may switch to every two weeks as that …

Why Duolingo?

Learning Spanish with Duolingo has been a breeze. It is easy to use and SO fun! Because it records which words you understand, which words you struggle with, and which words you down right don't understand, the app changes to match your learning level. My favourite aspect of Duolingo is that it records your progress and …
