The House of Many Languages

So, my kids have started using DuoLingo this summer to keep their language learning minds sharp while taking a break from “formal” lessons. (Actually, all five of us are using it.) They make me laugh, because they aren’t satisfied with a single language.

In addition to the German and Polish that are being officially studied during the school year, we have Spanish, French, Norwegian, and Russian being pursued by various members of the family. Irish and Welsh were both explored temporarily as well, but those have fallen by the wayside.

Oh, and there’s been a request for ASL lessons.

I have no idea how they intend to keep it all straight, but it is fun to hear the fun phrases they’re learning, including, “They are not people.” Yeah, we have a lot of fun with that one.
