How I learnt Spanish over the last 4 years, using Duolingo,Netflix and the BBC news app.

Last year when I was flying to the Bayer Youth Ag Summit, I had an extremely short stopover in Sao Paulo airport where I ended up getting lost.

I tried asking for directions from some staff I ran into but they didn’t understand English. My phone was dead so I wasn’t able to use Google Translate and I tried asking them in Spanish instead. Being similar to Portuguese they were able to understand, and gave me instructions which I understood for the same reason…
