Duolingo Doesn't Just Help With Foreign Language
Recently, I had to do a paper for History about language standardization and spelling reform in France, which I was rather worried about, since the topic is slightly archaic and difficult to find sources for. I navigated my way through forests, lakes, and mountains of information on Google, but still could not find any really good sources. However, as soon as I tried French Google, I was able to find books, magazines, newspapers, and essays on my topic. Thanks to Duolingo, I could read all of this, and raised my grade from a C+ for my feeble first draft that pulled its info from purely Anglophone sources to an A once I started using French sources. Big thanks to Duo for (inadvertently) helping out with my History class!
WOOW! Cool! I also found this out! This is a huge advantage of learning other languages. One sees a whole new world open up before him! I happened to be checking out a mathematical subject on wikipedia, and when I looked at the spanish version, it was so much more detailed and explanatory than the English one!
