The concept of virtual cruise threads seems to be working well.
The Virtual cruise from Mainz along the river Main Click here to view is going well and has several active participants and maybe there are also other people reading, watching the linked videos, and enjoying the virtual cruise.
I have various ideas for future virtual cruises, such as the Valley of the Loire in France, first gathering in Paris and then travelling to the cruise ship by TGV train.
I have an idea that I put forward in this thread for consideration please, wondering if it might appeal to readers, yet wondering if it might be a virtual event too far.
So here is the idea.
Could we have a virtual cruise in a place where participants do not know the language, but we simultaneously try to learn some of the language using the free Duolingo course?
Proceeding slowly, at the pace of the slowest, starting to use the language bit by bit aboard the virtual cruise as we learn from the Duolingo course and explore the country.
For example, if we are taught how to say Good morning in the language in the course then we sometimes use it in the virtual cruise thread.
One needs to register, free, to continue after the first lesson in
Duolingo. Duolingo by default sets your profile to public, but it can be made private.
So can we discuss whether people like the idea of a cruise with language learning please?
If interested, please suggest ideas for where to go and which language.
I have thought of two possibilities thus far, but I will not mention them yet.
There can be an ocean going cruise ship as well as a river cruise ship if that is what is needed.
Here is a link to the languages available on Duolingo.
