Teaching my brother Dutch with Duolingo!

My whole family is Dutch, and I was born there so I kept up the language. Then we moved somewhere where everyone speaks English, and my brother was born there. He was pretty good at Dutch when he was younger but he's basically lost it, and can't understand us when we speak it. Anyway, the other day we had Dutch guests over and he was sad that he couldn't understand what was being said. So I grabbed my laptop, logged on and let him do it. I told him it was a game that would help him learn Dutch and now he wants to do it everyday.

This is also really good for getting me XP, but that's not the point. He finally wants to learn it! Yay!! (Btw, he's eight, and it's good for both his English and Dutch.)

Just needed to share because I'm super happy. Thanks for reading and have a good day
