Whilst I was in Mauritius, I was hearing French everywhere, and it made me want to learn French.

Whilst relaxing by the pool, I started to Google possible classes in Melbourne so I could get started. However, I was itching to start learning French phrases, so I headed over to the App Store, and downloaded a free app called Duolingo.

Duolingo is the language app that everyone’s talking about, and it’s completely free! The app recognises that the key to learning a new tongue is repetition, so the app gives you bite sized learning in a fun, interactive way. The short lessons are addictive as you strive to reach the next level.

You can choose to learn for 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 30 minutes or 50 minutes a day. I’ve been learning French for 10 minutes per day, and I must say … at the end of each successfully completed round, I feel a great sense of accomplishment!

If you’re a procrastinator or you commute on public transport, this app is probably the best use of time I’ve across in a long time!
