So, I've been using Duolingo off and on for the last two years or so, without too much personal success. I have, however, been able to convince @Major to begin learning Russian on duolingo.

For those of you who do not know, Duolingo is a free language learning program that can be used as an application on your phone as well as your browser. Their languages available at this exact moment for English speakers are

Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Dutch, Swedish, Irish, Turkish, Danish, Norwegian Bokmal, Polish, Hebrew, Esperanto, Vietnamese, Ukrainian, Greek, Welsh, Hungarian, Swahili,and Romanian.

Czech is VERY close to coming out and I will be spending some quality time with Duolingo to try and learn it.

www.duolingo.com

So yeah, this is a Duolingo thread. Tells us about your interesting translations and what languages you have currently listed on your account as being learned. I'm currently "learning" Vietnamese, Turkish, German, Norwegian, and Swahili (which is surprisingly an easy language).

Had to settle for Russian cause' Czech is a way off (by a month) or so. Started getting really good and both the pronunciation and the Cryllic. You can go into your phone's language settings and download and Russian keyboard. For Android you just slide to the left on the space bar to switch to cryllic. It starts small and builds up from there, but eventually you will start to not even think about it until after you got it right. Very helpful for reading signs and stuff.

I saw swahili! I learnt some when I went to Kenya.

Jambo, Jambo bwana. Habari ghana hatsuri sana. Wageni habori bishwa, kenya yetu hakuna matata!

It is when you get a tone to it. The locals used to sing it when you were on the bus to the safari or going to the village. They actually seemed happy or maybe cause I was smiling too much at the time.
