An Observation

Every Saturday morning, I go to the library. And every time I go, there’s an elderly man, sitting at one of the computers, learning Spanish on Duolingo. Often, he’ll stop to take notes on paper. I think it’s the most inspirational thing, what this man does. He’s clearly dedicated to learning Spanish, and puts in a lot of effort.

I just thought I’d share that with you guys.

If you ever talk to him, tell him that a random DL user thinks he is awesome.

Wouldn’t it be funny if he commented on this comment?

That is a nice story. I can picture him sitting there :)

Give him our regards and wish him the best on his studies.

Nice observation. Public libraries are the life blood of knowledge for many people. After being out of an area for many years I returned and one of my first things to do was to arrange a library card. I noted with dismay that an entire area of Vietnamese related material such as books, DVD's and CD's was eliminated. Budget cuts. Funding public libraries should be a no brainer, pardon the pun. When I went online at their web page I was looking for the Rosetta link that used to be free on there was gone but I discovered Duolingo.
