Hello, Olá, Kon’nichiwa, Bonjour, Ciao!
So you’ve watched everything on your Netflix list and now you’re ready for some brain stimulation? Ever curious about learning a new language? Well the time is now.

There are many apps such as Duolingo, Babbel and Drops that offer intensive language courses for those like Prof. Brian Sox, who want to speak fluent Japanese for an archeological expedition in Japan, to the not-so intensive courses for those like Venus, who just want to order a glass of ‘vino’ in perfect Italian. And for those social butterflies like Yoko Mono who prefer some FaceTime, apps like Tandem will connect you with an exchange partner to practice your skills. Think of it as a modern day pen pal.

Spread the love
Whichever your app of choice - FaceTime, WhatApps, Messenger or gamification apps like House Party, use this time to connect with your family and friends. Send a virtual hug, attend a virtual yoga class together, or simply call to remind them you’re there for them.

 

Whatever tickles your toes, there’s something for everyone, every step of the way.
We hope we’ve brought some cheer into your day.
