Ciao! Hola! Bonjour!
 
If you ever wanted to learn another language now is your chance with the Duolingo App. It's a great way of tracking how you're learning the language and an easy way to integrate this into your daily activities.

Choose from French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and even English.

So how do you learn each language? Well you start off with lessons, each tackling different subjects such as phrases, food and animals.

You advance by completing each lesson, and your progress is rewarded with shiny achievements!

More than a hundred lessons are available for each language, and you can work at your own pace.

However, don't slack off too much!

This app will alert you every day to make sure you are keeping up with your lessons.

Need extra motivation? Well ask a friend to learn a language, too, and you can check on their stats to make it a fun and educational challenge.

The best part of this app? 

Duolingo is available in the App store and Google play for free!
