We’re going to be travelling later this year, and those travel plans include a location where English — my first language — is not the primary tongue. English is almost certainly spoken and understood there (it’s in Europe, after all) but even knowing that I’d like to at least brush up on my second language skills as part of a “good traveller” mentality.
So, all that is to say that I’ve been streaking on Duolingo.
I’ve hit a full month of daily practice in my French skills.
I mean, I grew up in Canada where part of the school curriculum is basic conversational French, but it’s easy to feel it slipping away into the cold storage parts of my brain.
Practice, practice, practice. All spring? Hopefully, and by the time my summer vacation rolls around… au revoir!
