Meine Obsession mit Duolingo!
Let me introduce myself. I am Ravi Agrawal, pursuing MBA from SIBM. I got an opportunity to go for an exchange program and then wanted to learn German. One of my friends suggested this site and it has been 17 days since then. I have not missed a day of practice.
Some saturdays, I take it so seriously that I forget everything else. Almost forgot my exams too. Its such a wonderful experience to be here and to be amongst all of you. Thank you so much for keeping it a lively atmosphere.
I recently paid tribute to Virendra Sehwag (he is the only Indian batsman to score 300+ runs in Test cricket, who recently announced retirement from International cricket) by scoring 330 xps in a day.
I hope to see all of you doing great in your pursuits! May this platform help all of us to achieve new heights! :D
Guten tag! I am also learning right from the beginning and really enjoying it! My daughter took the Spanish course to support the school and she is amazed about this. And she is finally enjoying her Spanish! (She is fifteen and takes the course in English as there is no Finnish or Swedish option, so I am very proud of her)
Keep up the good work!
Welcome to Duo and congratulations on your new addiction! Duo and German are awesome. You came at a great time. About three weeks ago the German tree was changed massively so people like me who had finished it got to find out we now had about 1/3 of a tree to do still. Duo broke up levels and added a lot more content which makes German even better. You will work through the tree without noticing a change. I have to feel like I'm drowning in German and put my Italian on hold to get my German tree golden again. You're very lucky you came after the change and so don't have to put another language on hold.
Guten Tag! I, too, share the obsession, especially after getting my first owl (in Spanish). Yesterday I ordered a German cookbook and today I made sauerkraut.
By the way, is the Goethe test only available in Europe? Is there some sort of certification program for those of us in the U.S.?
Danke. Although I do have to say, anybody with a 290 day streak does not have a problem with Lingots. ;-)
I actually started Duolingo 290 days ago. There were a couple of days where my streak freeze came in handy, but I've taken Duo on a Disneyland trip and everything.
