Local woman can’t even bring herself to learn a new language in second lockdown


Woman not going to learn another language during lockdown

A local woman has confirmed she’s “just about had it with this fucking year” today, after she revealed she doesn’t even have the energy to try and learn a new language during the ongoing second national lockdown.

Sarah Robertson, a 31-year-old marketing executive and ‘wellness enthusiast’ from Wiltshire, had made history during the first national lockdown in March, after becoming the first person among her social group to complete the Level 1 Spanish course on Duolingo.

Despite her clear linguistic genius, however, Ms Robertson has indicated that she has no intention of expanding her range to a whole third language this time around.

“To be honest, I thought the lockdown in March was going to be a one-time thing,” said Ms Robertson in a lengthy Facebook post this morning.

“I thought I would learn a language, you know, develop a life skill, update my Bumble, that kind of thing. I didn’t realise there would be another lockdown, and frankly, I just don’t think I can fit a Level 1 Italian in my head as well!

“This has been such a shit year, and I just don’t have the energy to keep trying to make myself a better person.”

Despite taking such a drastic decision, Ms Robertson says her educational experience was a positive one, and she still keeps in touch with the friends she made along the way.

“Just because I’m not going to bother learning another language, it doesn’t mean I won’t keep in touch with my wonderful friends.

“I mean, I don’t think there’s been a single day since March where that sweet little owl hasn’t emailed me.”
