Yet another year has gone by, the world hasn't ended, and Duolingo has been expanding rapidly with so many new languages to try! Wouldn't it be great if we could learn more of them? And wouldn't it be great if we could FORCE ourselves to learn more of them? So this New Year's, how about we all pledge to learn more and expand our horizons!

Let's make an international New Year's resolution together to bridge the language barrier around the world and help promote the understanding of cultures different from our own. So, if you make a New Year's resolution (in a foreign language with an English translation) to commit more time to Duolingo and improving your learning I will give you 5 Lingots!

So, who's up for the challenge?

Happy New Year's from the United States e buon anno nuovo dagli stati uniti!

Im not a native but here are some corrections (just because they help us all learn :))

Ma résolution -> most, if not all words ending in -tion are feminine.

est d'améliorer -> vowels cannot be together so the "de" becomes "d' "

mon français -> masculine (feminine is "française" but I don't believe that it is usually used when referring to the language.

Je veux -> "veut" is third person singular (il/elle/on veut)

Commencer à étudier l'espagnol et l'italien -> article used with Italian :)

Bon chance avec ta résolution et bonne année :D

Don't know an ounce of French but the info you gave will clearly be of help to someone - that deserves a reward in my opinion.

Pour info, je me permets ces petites corrections "je veux aussi commencer à apprendre l'italien, le hollandais, l'allemand, le danois..." - quand le verbe commencer est suivi d'un verbe à l'infinitif, il faut ajouter la préposition "à" exemple : je commence à faire quelque chose; quand il est suivi d'un substantif, il n'y a pas de préposition, exemple : je commence un travail ; - ajouter l'article "le" ou" l'(devant une voyelle)" devant les langues. Que c'est compliqué, le français ! Bon courage et bon apprentissage !
