Towards the beginning of the pandemic I remember being bombarded by the news of people wanting to learn a language. Desperate as we all were for brain stimulation and something else to focus on, learning a language seemed to be the perfect solution. Such was the collective enthusiasm for this skill that Duolingo started advertising on TV; your streak on the app became something to post to social media; and the whole world seemed eager to become multilingual.

Although some might decry the benefits of learning via Duolingo, Drops or any other language learning app, I am not among that…
