First Trip to Brazil with Duolingo
After about four months of using Duolingo, (app and website) I traveled to Brazil for the first time. I did use a Skype tutor for Portuguese a few times, but besides that all my learning has been from Duolingo.
What a success!
My first days were rough, as I could only communicate simple phrases, but less than a week after, I could hold simple conversations with strangers. It was so rewarding! I wanted to thank Duolingo for helping me break the language barrier, and enabling me to make great new friends!
I had people baffled that I learned so much with a free language app. :D Now to finally finish this tree and plan my return trip!
Congrats! It's good to know we're making a difference in people's lives and allowing you all to enjoy your travel experiences from a different,more engaged perspective :)
Great Story ! I went to Madrid last week and I could easily understand people. I was speaking quite well (only using the present because I don't know how to use past and future). The only time I used english was when I was in the airport and couldn't figure where I had to go, and I was so stressed ^^
DuoLingo is freaking amazing!!! I wanted to learn Portuguese because my husband is Brazilian. We are going to Brazil to see his family soon. This is helping me feel more confident about my language learning and it's addicting too.
Parabéns! Great story! I am learning Portuguese right now because I am planning a trip to Brazil in a few months. Great to hear that Duolingo helped you so much!
Parabéns,fico feliz por você, um dia também desejo poder falar outras línguas ^^
Congratulations! I'm very happy for you. It's a reason to be proud of yourself. I'm brazilian, and I'm learning English, I don't speak many things, but I want to learn more and more.
Parabéns e nunca desista.
