Learning a Language in Quarantine!


We’ve all got a lot of time on our hands now. Some states are on a full lockdown, forcing thousands, if not millions, of Americans to shelter in place.

So what do we do? There’s only so much Netflix to watch.

Some stars have thought about expanding their brainpower by learning a new language! The actress Gwyneth Paltrow suggested to her followers that now is the time to explore a foreign tongue or two. Or maybe write a book!

Harry Styles is also diving into other dialects. He started learning American Sign Language and Italian while he’s in quarantine. Whether or not that will go well for him remains to be seen, but we can only hope that he writes an Italian song or two!

The humble author of this post is also trying his hand at a new language! My girlfriend and I decided it might be fun to learn Norwegian together, and ten days in, I can confidently say “jeg snakker ikke norsk” (I don’t speak Norwegian).
