Addicted to blue hooklets

Are you reading this article on your tablet or even on your cell phone? Think about how many Whats App messages you have already sent today!

But once we start discovering new words, sounds and maybe even alphabets – how can we brush up our foreign languages? How can we keep them up to date?
