On the 2nd last day of 2015, I reached a 800 day streak. Not quite perfect timing but considering that I had a 1 in 365 chance, it is pretty close.
Congratulations to KnittingGurl for your streak too!
And a huge thank you to everyone who has supported me in learning Spanish over the past 800 days (and more). And also sending out the love to Rspreng, Mavry, Babella and others who have patiently answered my silly questions and looked over my bad jokes. Big thanks to the ever hard working contributors and administrators of this fantastic site. Your generosity is beyond words. It really made me proud to be human when you announced German for Arabic speakers to help out the refugees. You are so wonderful for doing that.
Sincere congratulations Meredith...!! 800 days is a huge achievement.
Bad jokes.... what bad jokes? I love bad jokes! :-)
My Spanish is intermediate. At least that's what my friends say...
"Intermediate" sounds pretty good. My hope is that I reach a comfortable level for conversation in 5 to 6 years. Your progress makes that seem possible.
I can hold a conversation wholly in Spanish for a few hours now (my record is two hours). Google, WordReference and cherades often get used but it's mainly for the vocab rather than strange grammar. If you keep up Duolingo and a gold tree, plus supplementing it with lang8 and Memrise you should get to a comfortable level of Spanish before that.
