Language Learning

Another aspect of preparation for the Ignatian Camino is learning Spanish. I managed just a few words on a previous visit.  I have tried a couple of apps: Duolingo which is free and cheerful but does not explain anything or get very far, and Babbel, which is not quite free but inexpensive and much more educational. Spanish has an enormous number of tenses. I have worked through the six modules of the Beginner’s Course, with interesting storylines including (women’s) football, speed dating, online banking, and protecting the environment. Now for the intermediate course!
