As my plans for spending two months of the Summer 2017 in my native Germany, my loved France, my married into Italy and my personal study Switzerland, I am starting to get nervous about my language skills.

There are no worries with German as I use it on a daily basis with my work, associates and colleagues, and my family. Although, I for sure will learn new lingo-slango in the streets and at events over there.

My fluent French after having lived there 6 years, on the other hand, didn’t have much practice lately. And I never learned Italian and would love to talk some more to my parents in law.

With that, I set up an account in Duolingo, a free language-learning platform that includes a language-learning website and app. I decided to integrate the refreshing of my French and the learning of Italian into my daily life, few minutes a day.

You plan to do business overseas? Or selling a digital product there? Why not getting started to learn some of that language. And especially if you have a profession that puts you on the forefront with communicating with European customers, guests, tourists. I wrote a post just about that.

If you like, join me on Duolingo, my username is KatrinRG. See you on the flip-side?
