About Andreas Moser
Travelling the world and writing about it. I have degrees in law and philosophy, but I'd much rather be a writer, a spy or a hobo.

Duolingo IS great. Have you tried HelloTalk or GoSpeaky?
I only use Duolingo and Memrise, which I find more useful. Duolingo is extremely limited and a lot of the vocabulary doesn’t make sense when presented out of context. It’s not bad as an additional thing, but you can’t really “learn” a language through it (unless maybe the language is similar to another language that you already speak).
I thought that I would learn much quicker than I did and it took a while before I realized that I would always be learning. But I’ve found that if you enjoy the process, then everything else is gravy.
And then, one day I knew enough to read newspapers. Or all of a sudden I could understand that guy who I thought was showing off in group meet-ups, etc.
