Learn Spanish for FREE...Plus it's fun!

Learning a second language can be very useful, especially for your work or career. In a sluggish economy, knowing a second language might be the thing that puts yourself above the rest. For me I just want to learn another language and knowing Spanish will definitely be beneficial for my career in dentistry.

There are two main problems that I see with learning a new language.
  1. It costs money
  2. It's a lot of work and not very exciting
Well, I just started a new program called "Duolingo" that solves both of these problems. First of all it's completely FREE and secondly it's actually a lot of's really more of a game.
  • Duolingo can be used on your computer or on your smartphone as an app. 
  • It's fun because it uses the "level-up" idea that many games utilize, so it's actually kind of addicting. You don't want to stop learning. You can also see other friends progress and compete with them. 
  • You can actually learn several languages: German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and French.
Duolingo is revolutionary and I've actually read that it is just as good or better than leading language software such as Rosetta Stone. So you can pay $100's using Rosetta Stone or $1000's taking college courses or you can try Duolingo for free. (I've actually never tried Rosetta Stone so I can't personally compare, but I really like Duolingo so far). Might as well give it a try first before paying money to learn a language. 

Want to learn a language other than one offered by Duolingo? Want to try a different free resource? Check out these other free options:
