Ahead of our trip to Seville next weekend, I’m brushing up on my Spanish with DuoLingo. I really like the app, its simple, responsive and gives a nice mix of listening, translating and writing.
There’s one feature that I particularly like which I discovered whilst doing my lesson on a busy train in the morning. There are speaking questions but I don’t want to embarrass myself or annoy others on the train with my poor Spanish. DuoLingo designed for this scenario. For any speaking parts, they have a button at the bottom ” can’t talk right now” which skips the question, mutes the speaking questions for an hour and skips to the next question. Very nice!
