Who is learning a language because they are going on holiday? I'm going for 1 month in September.
I'm learning Turkish. Has anyone had experience learning from this site, and then applying what you learned on holiday? Basically, I don't want to go to Turkey and speak English for 28 days. I want to speak Turkish.
I am going to Turkey for 3 weeks in 2020. I have been using Duolingo for 5 months and I am still struggling, but I am enjoying the process of exercising my mind. It has been 50 years since I tried to learn a new language. It's definitely harder when you get older, and this is the hardest language I have attempted to learn. I do think that any attempt to speak the local language when traveling is appreciated and shows respect for the culture and people. Good luck to you!
