Too Busy To Learn A Foreign Language?
So... I'm a busy lady and I have a lot of things I want to accomplish. One of those things is to brush up on my Spanish, since I spent tons of money in college to learn it and about the only thing I can do is order Mexican food in a restaurant without sounding completely foolish. However, I don't have time to sit down and log into a computer and I don't want to spend more money on instruction. I am always on the go!
The Trimble County Public Library has made Mango Languages available to customers. The other day, I downloaded the FREE Mango Language App to my phone and logged in using my Trimble Library card. I started learning Spanish right away. I learn Spanish when I'm on the exercise bike at the gym and I need to forget that I'm breathing heavy, my heart rate is through the roof, and I'm ready to die. It's a great distraction! I learn Spanish when I am cooking dinner and waiting for things to finish baking. We learn Spanish in the car with my kids on the way to school because we have a 20 minute drive. It actually cuts down on the amount of times I have to reprimand the kids for touching each other or looking at each other. Again - it's a great distraction and we are all learning something new, which is fun!
