On Your Bucket List?
Learning a language as a high school student, I thought I would never use it. Who spoke Spanish in rural North Carolina in the 1970s? Fast forward many years and you’ll find amazing little tiendas and taquerías selling everything from tortas to Tejano CDs. Sure wish I’d paid closer attention to Senorita Black all those years ago.
So now on my bucket list? Learn to speak Spanish. Luckily the Duke Libraries now subscribe to a new language instruction resource called Byki Online. With over 70 languages, from Afrikaans to Zulu, you’ll find blogs, flashcards, words-of-the-day, and many other tools to speed your conversational skills.
You can locate additional information here, and after signing up, start your new language adventure.
