I've just made a new friend thanks to Duo. // Also Law of Attraction story if you're open to that.
I have a cute little story of how I attracted a native Spanish person into my life. Where I live I don't know anyone around me who speaks Spanish, but I really wanted to have someone with whom I can practice, I talked about this with my sister about a week ago and she reminded me: "Then, just ask for it!". So I just said it: "Universe, send me a cool native who I can have fun conversations with" and forgot about the whole thing.
A week later, last night I was playing an Online Video Game. I was minding my own business, killing monsters when another player (random person, never seen him) invited me to a group to do a quest together. I helped him. We had a regular chit-chat when at the end he asked the big question:
Player: "So where you from?" Me: "Hungary. You?" Player: "Castellón, Spain." Me: (eyes grew bigger than Spain itself) --> O.O "Comó estááááááááááááááááá mi amigo! :D"
I told him I'm learning Spanish for a month and was able to have a very basic conversation with him (What's your name, how old are you, what do you work, Do you drink water?, Juan eats apples...)
We've put each other on friendslist and he said he also likes learning, so anytime I want to practice, feel free to hit him up.
And that's the story of how language learning can open up the world for you, my friends.
I wish you all happy and motivated learning.
Good news! It just shows how language can change your life. Enjoy the friendship.
This is cool. I actually need to do something similar because I now need someone to practice Spanish with.
Thank you for sharing this story as it serves as helpful reminder to ask for what you want.
Szép történet, jár a Lingot. :-) Én (szerencsére?) már nem játszom, de lehet én is kívánok majd egy hasonlót. ;-)
Jó nyelvgyakorlást kívánok az új barátoddal!
