Duolingo

FREE LANGUAGE EDUCATION FOR THE WORLD:

Duolingo is a free language-learning program available for iOs and Android. There are only a few offered languages, unfortunately—but with enough signal boosting, we could find bilingual people to volunteer their services! 

Please reblog!

  • It’s free, for real.
    No fees, no ads, no gimmicks. A college-quality education without the pricetag. This is how we do it.
  • Scientifically proven.
    An independent study found that Duolingo trumps university-level language learning.
  • Learning, gamified.
    Lose hearts with incorrect answers, practice against the clock, level up. Duolingo is addictive.

My fave app, atm!

Go to a coffee shop. Sit by the bar with the glass windows and look out. Look at all the people running to catch a train. All the girls with one too many shopping bags. All the couples too in love to care. Then you’ll see it - a bit of yourself in everyone. And somehow, sitting alone in a coffee shop had never felt so good.

I don’t really want to become normal, average, standard. I want merely to gain in strength, in the courage to live out my life more fully, enjoy more, experience more. I want to develop even more original and more unconventional traits.
