I’m sure I’m still in that honeymoon period where the novelty is keeping me invested. So who knows if I’ll be in it next year.
But for now – I love it. I took Spanish for three years in middle / high school and remembered just enough to annoy me that I’m not more fluent. And every time I’ve tried to pick up the language again with tapes or audiobooks or whatever, the lessons start too simply. I can only practice “Hola” once before I’m bored out of my skull.
So Duolingo’s approach is a huge blessing. I love that I’ve been able to dive straight into more intermediate lessons that balance both review and new info.
And now that I’ve given up drinking again, it’s a good way to kill time and keep me distracted. Let’s hope it sticks.
