Invest in myself

This month I want to try something new. I want to learn something new. I thought about knitting, about aquaaerobics – or however you spell the bloody thing, I looked into learning to play and instrument and I bought a couple of books on improvng my handwriting.

What I eventually decided I want to invest some time in is learning/refreshing some language skills. Many years ago I learned German in school and I got a decent grade in my exams. And promptly never used the language again. I barely remember any of it.

I’ve signed up for Duolingo and this is what I learned this afternoon:
Mann – man
Junge – boy
Frau – woman
Ein Mann – a man
Eine Frau – a woman
Ich bin Hannah – I am Hannah
Mädchen – girl
und – and
Kind – child
du – you
bist – are
So now I can say very useful phrases like Ich bin Hannah und ich bin eine Frau
