I did it, the tree is done!

I had to share, because I am in joy... I finished my first tree, the Italian one! I began to think it will never happen... So from me to those who struggle, persevere! The feeling of achievement and newfound knowledge, how little or big it is, is so fulfilling. Duolingo thank you! :-) And thanks to all of you who discuss and share :-*

Nice! How long did it take you?

January 7, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/Ketcha7

It took me exactly 50 days, ( i froze one day) but I did maybe 30min to an hour a day. Because I love Italian soo much I maybe hurried a little bit. :-)

50 days?! Wow, that's crazy fast! Make sure you maintain it, or else you'll have to repeat it in a month or so - words decay fast.

I know, right? I am trying to strengthen the lessons every day, but they are weakening soo fast. But I will not give up :) Thank you.

If you don't care about a golden tree, use Anki to strengthen these words.

50 days is fantastic, I am on day 27 and a long way from the goal. but yes they are weakening very fast, and most of them is weakening correct.

Yes I know, it can be annoying doing the same thing over and over again. But you know what they say... Repetition is the mother of learning. I`m sure you will finish the tree soon and keep it golden. :)

I am going to do an english tree from italian now, so when I finish that one, yes I would practice spanish also, thanks. But I don`t know how helpful I would be to you, because english is not my first language. I make many mistakes :-/

I loved it. I learned a lot. I don`t know how well, or can I communicate at all. But in theory I really put some pieces together. I recommend it.

How much Italian did you know before you started?...and can you hold a conversation now that you have finished? Also, any tips/advice for someone learning Italian after moving to Milan?

January 8, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/Ketcha7

I was a beginner when I came here, I listened to Italian music and watched TV shows just to get the feel for the language. Now... I understand it, and I can hold a basic conversation, nothing complicated. Only advice that I can give you is to listen to the native speakers and speak the language every chance you get. And good luck in Milan. I`m jealous. :)

January 31, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/hamburger09

so are you doing this for fun? or for a reason

January 31, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/Ketcha7

I started doing this to learn italian, and found out that it is fun also. So I am still repeatedly strengthening my italian tree and learning spanish too.

hello, I'm mostly doing German, and yep! I really love learning the words and stuff, I'm not that far though, but yeah, practicing makes you better! (new-ish to duo, somewhere between 1-3 months I forgot exactly though xD) :P
