Thursday: Studying languages beyond school
Is there a language you have always wanted to learn? Now is your chance! Today we challenge you to spend an hour learning a new language.
In what ways can you learn a language away from a formal learning setting? You might want to watch a film or TV series in your target language, read a book or magazine online, use a a language learning app such as duolingo or memrise or you could ask a friend to teach you some words and phrases.
However you go about it, we would love to see how you get on. Share what you learn and how you went about it on Twitter @LangsWeekScot.
Can you keep up this hour-a-day habit for a week? A month? What progress do you make?
Why not take your language learning further by attending a conversation meet-up or join a language society at your college or university.
