Even if you don't have to work in a bilingual environment, the truth is that speaking more than one language opens the doors for a lot of opportunities. There are thousands of methods to learn and master a language that is not your own, and with the advancement of technology, more and more companies join the trend
Such is the case of Duolingo, the site for free language learning, which is now presented by Duolingo Stories, a new project that has more than 100 short and interactive stories, designed to help students with reading and listening comprehension as that progress in their mission of learning a new language.
Duolingo Stories is available as your own tab in the Duolingo application and website, and has a number of useful features, such as the ability to enjoy independent stories at once or follow a plot with stories from various parts, or choose from a variety of non-fiction options (such as biographies), as well as original or adapted fiction themes. You can also find classic public domain stories.
This platform presents fun challenges that are interwoven in each story, with the aim of helping readers reinforce what they are learning. In addition, full-voice narratives help improve listening comprehension, because they are made by professionals who have each language as their native language.
Duolingo is a website for free language learning, as well as a text translation platform. The service is designed in such a way that as the user advances in their learning, it also helps to translate web pages and other documents.
The site currently offers courses in a variety of languages, such as Spanish, English, French, German, Portuguese, Italian or Dutch, although new language courses are in the process of being created thanks to what is described as "the language incubator".
The web application, which allows users to learn different languages, has been very successful thanks to the interaction of the methodology and that is learned without having to know the rules of grammar. Rather, it is a practical learning process that uses images, sounds and translations
Duolingo stories are available for English speakers who learn Spanish, French, German and Portuguese, as well as Spanish speakers who are learning English. The function was launched in the iPhone application as of October 29 and is available on the web. The company points out that it will soon be also available for Android.
