Play Your Way to a New Language with Duolingo

Duolingo LogoLearning a second language isn’t only about expanding your knowledge, experiencing other cultures, and connecting with others… it’s also a powerful competitive advantage over those in your market who only speak one language.

As census data shows, the percentage of those who speak a non-English language at home has grown considerably over the past thirty years. Consider that in 1980 in the U.S. there were 11 million Spanish speakers, any by 2015 there were 41 million. (Bilingual agents are also more available to wealthy international buyers looking for property in the U.S.)

Learning a new language has broken out of the classroom in the past ten years. Online learning tools now make it not only possible for you to learn a second language in your spare time, but they also make it fun. One of the best free platforms for learning online is Duolingo.

Duolingo is a cloud-based service for learning more than 20 languages. It offer a browser-based interface for learning in addition to apps for iOS, Android, and Windows. According to the website, “Learning with Duolingo is fun and addictive. Earn points for correct answers, race against the clock, and level up. Our bite-sized lessons are effective, and we have proof that it works.”

The interface is highly addictive. You choose your learning pace and Duolingo works with you to develop vocabulary, hone your speaking skills, and reinforce what you’re learning along the way.

Rather than scroll through your Facebook feed in those idle minutes, why not cultivate your fluency in a new language? Learn more here:
