Duolingo stories

My desktop calendar is reminding that tomorrow we set off for Colombia. Thank you, desktop calendar, but I don't think I could forget that fact.

I'm nearly all ready. Just a few more tasks. But I took a break just now to practice Spanish with Duolingo Stories. (Interestingly, it turns out that one of the founders of Duolingo is from Guatemala. There's tense-making episode of the Duolingo Spanish podcast in which he describes how his family dealt with the kidnapping of his aunt.)

The Duolingo Spanish Stories are wonderful. Some of them are downright hilarious, like this one, "Muñecos de boda", about newlyweds who have been given two terrifying marionettes as a wedding gift. And the one I just finished, "Decisiones", had a moment that made me laugh out loud:



Marcos says, "I love this place," and Laura says "Me too. I just met our neighbor. He has thirty-five birds as pets." "Everyone needs a hobby," Marcos remarks amiably.

It's a very fun way to practice Spanish!
