New language mission: learning Italian!

Summer is slowly bidding farewell for this year, the days are getting shorter and the temperature is dropping. Time to find some indoor activity for the cold months!So I decided to add a new language to my range of skills: Italian.

To be fair it’s the easy choice, knowing Spanish and French obviously helps a great deal. Still it’s a beautiful language to learn and there are some difficulties (a language that is very similar to a known one is the perfect recipe for a great mix-up!)

We’ll see how that goes. I just started learning it using Duolingo which I find to be a great tool. I used it to complete French, English, German and Spanish and it was fun & educational. What more can you hope for?

By the way you can follow me there and I’d be happy to follow you back. If you need a good English-Italian dictionary you can also try That’s where I go when I forget a word 😉

So I’m currently at level 6 with Italian, let’s hope I make it all the way!

Next languages on Duolingo: Irish, Danish, Dutch!
