Today I’m thankful for Duolingo.
I can make myself understood in French as long as the subject isn’t too obscure. I studied Russian for two years at university and picked up some Welsh for fun. I’m currently useless at both. I’m complicating my French and trying to wrap my brain around Italian. The Duolingo app on my phone tells me I’m 12% fluent in Italian. I can only conjugate 3 verbs but they stay conjugated! Who needs formal study when one’s phone can reinforce their delusions about language fluency?
