A study by the NPD Group shows that half of all US homes have a connected TV device. The report defines connected devices as any device such as TVs, video game consoles, streaming media players, and Blu-ray Disc players that connected to the Internet. Of course, we are online. With the pandemic situation, many are spending time inside their home. So, the best way to kill the time, Netflix and Amazone Prime. Right now I am watching DARK, a German series. What are you watching? And how the online platforms are going to change the entertainment industry?
For mny years I have been trying to learn Czech. I have loads of textbooks and courses and am able to make myself understood in Čechia when we go on holiday. It is a difficult language to master but I do want to become more fluent in it. My first book was "Czech in 3 Months" - lol! I have since bought other courses and all of them have good features and bad ones. This year I was recommended an app called "Duolingo" and it really is helping me increase my knowledge and building on the foundation I already have, although I started on it as a beginner. Last weekend I attended "Duocon London" the first conference held by Duolingo and it was interesting to hear from the founder and the "team" who design the courses - there are many language courses available on Duolingo. (My wife is studying Czech and Arabic.) The original idea was to make language education fun and - most importantly - free. Yes you can subscribe and there are benefits to that but all the courses are actually free. Another site is czechclass101.com - mostly free but they do try to get you to subscribe. As an addition to Duolingo i find it very helpful. I would like opportunities to speak czech one-on-one and there are teachers in London (where I live) but the hourly rate is usually about £16 per hour! Are there sites where one can practice for free? Is anyone else earning a language? If so, what have you found to effective?
