Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Practicing a new language with Remember The Milk

With our language support (thanks to our awesome translators!), Remember The Milk can be a neat way to test your foreign language skills: just change the language, test out the app, and change your setting back when you're done.

This week's tip, shared by relevart, suggests something a bit more dedicated: entering your tasks in your foreign language, learning and practicing as you go.

Yesterday evening I was thinking about ways of how I could improve my English skills. One of the ideas I came up with was to utilize my regular RTM usage to do that.

I am from Hungary and so far I have been adding all of my tasks to RTM in Hungarian. Today I started to add all of my tasks in English. This takes a bit more time because sometimes I have to think a few moments about the translation or look up some words in an online dictionary, but this way I am practicing English every day without too much extra effort.

I have already learned a few new words and expressions while translating all of my uncompleted tasks to English. At first it's a little odd to see the tasks in English, but I already love this new way of using RTM. If you would like to improve your English skills you should give it a try too!
