Interested in learning a language? Duolingo is an app that can be used on a Smartphone or on a regular computer screen, and tests your skills in reading, writing, and speaking. It's set up sort of like a game, and you can compete against your friends to see who earns the most points! (I'm an avid user--feel free to challenge me!) If you're an English speaker, Duolingo currently offers lessons in Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, French, Dutch, Danish, Irish, and German. If you're a Spanish speaker, or a speaker of a variety of other languages, you can also use it the opposite way, and hone your skills in English.
