Learning Language Online
Online language courses
In this globalization environment, we are forced to understand the language of certain countries to be able to communicate easier and find a better common ground. The world is now fast-paced because of the internet and the practicality of transportation. But, for some people learning a new language can be very hard and complicated because they need to learn new grammars, words, phrases, and maybe other alphabets from other languages. And because we are stuck at home, might as well use our free time to learn these languages online. There are a few apps that can help us learn new languages such as:
Duolingo is an American platform that includes a language-learning website and mobile app, as well as a digital language-proficiency assessment exam.
