2. Duolingo. Though the online program is still in the beta phase, I am pretty pumped about it. It is a web-based program designed to teach Spanish, French, and German. I have been working on Spanish for a couple of weeks, and like Codecademy, Duolingo offers positive reinforcement and solid structure. It also offers plenty of opportunities to practice new vocabulary and language skills with real Spanish on the web. In July, I am going to start working through a Spanish for Reading Knowledge textbook, so we’ll see how much Duolingo can prepare me for that.
3. Trello. If you love lists and organization, check this site out. You can move items on your to-do list through stages (like to-do, doing, done). You can also invite members to a group and organization tasks, team members, etc for a common project. I have set up a couple of boards (one for my summer course, one for summer, and one for my family). The site is easy to learn and easy to use. Another recommendation from my brother. Thanks, Bren!
