Has anyone let their younger kids do Duolingo?

#1 Unread post by Dinky Dazza » January 13th, 2021, 1:47 am

My youngest wanted to do Japanese after she saw me doing on a refresher on Spanish, except she's doing Japanese in school, so I said absolutely not.

She has to learn at the same pace and style of her class.

But it looked like a game to her and she loves online games, so I let her do Mandarin.

She got so frustrated with the characters, and was almost throwing fits. So I made her finish her level lesson (took 3 days...lol), and she asked for Spanish.

She's blitzing Spanish! She's getting the hang of certain words or phrases I couldn't in high school.

I haven't hardly helped her, instead asking her questions about her questions.

This App is a game foremost but kids are sponges.

I can speak Spanish. We will need it when we retire.

My paternal grandparents are from Germany. I speak a little German. My maternal grandmther is from Japan, but I can't speak any Japanese.

I have been duolingo all my life. The younger kids are exposed to a different language the better.

Old Hernan's first language is Ukrainian even though I was born in Canada. The old lady speaks fluent Russian. We often speak in Russian at home.

Don't know what that is. My adult sons are gamers.

Sometimes, my comments have a touch of humor, often tongue-in-cheek, so don't take it so seriously.

The only language that matters is Mandarin Chinese. Now that we control Canada and the US, it'll be your official language in the near future.

I don't think you'll need to download duolingo just yet.
