Day 120: Duolingo
Luis von Ahn, the founder of reCAPTCHA, has come up with a way to coordinate millions of people to translate the internet while learning a foreign language for free, and it's called Duolingo. Watch the short video above to find out more about it. Having the ability to speak Spanish conversationally is one of the items on my bucket list, so I applied to be a beta user of the program as soon as I heard about it. Well, today I got the email saying I had been accepted; I immediately signed into the website and just completed Basics 1. Soy una mujer. Yo bebo vino. See how much I have learned already?
