While you’re out on a walk, you don’t have to think about difficult tasks. It’s not stressful at all. You can stop and smell the flowers, sit on a bench and read, or simply enjoy the fresh air. It’s easy and fun!

But I think learning a foreign language is no walk in the park at all. You have to learn forever and  always there is something to learn.It might be a kind of nonstop task.
