I started french and did well with it. Purely based on my pipe dream of having a villa in Paris when I retire (although am in my twenties and only just stepping into the world of work so I’m sure I have plenty of time to practise haha! ?)
Tried Russian for a boy I fancied module at school - so hard. Welsh was fun too, unlocked everything I learned at school and thought I’d forgotten!
Doing some Dutch on there. It’s ok but not a patch on babbel. I do already know some conversational level Dutch so I’m a bit annoyed the duo lingo lessons aren’t more of what you would encounter day to day
I had a go at learning Irish - fancied trying something different. Really enjoyed it but found the lack of grammar explanations annoying. I think you do need them when learning a new language, especially one which has markedly different structures.
Would love to brush up my German.
I'm brushing up on my French that I learned in school. The spoken French is quite good. I'm also trying to refresh my Irish but there isn't enough of the course material there spoken, so you really don't know how to pronounce the words (if you haven't been forced to learn the language in school in Ireland for years). I find that disappointing. I'm also trying to learn Spanish as my daughter is learning it in school and I would like to be able to have a basic understanding of the language.
