It's been a few years of work, and now, it seems so anticlimactic. From the past few years of pushing out the thirty minute evening sessions, to the sessions in the parking lots of stores fishing for wi-fi to maintain my streak while I was traveling, to losing my longest streak to traveling and being away from wi-fi and how hard it was to get started again, to trying to simultaneously learn German and French, only to have to put French aside because I was in a different country, and needed to learn their language, it has been a journey. The funny thing is that I never thought I'd never bother to learn French, but I guess c'est la vie.

To everyone out there, don't get discouraged!

EDIT: Thanks for the congrats everyone!

I cannot understand that, you are so far,you spend so much time to reach your level, keep faith in your self, 283 days, top. I had some holiday breaks, because I travel a lot, I made the move to Luxembourg, I had no Internet over there in the beginning. I also travel a lot to Spain, lots of appointments,( we are starting to build a house over there) tired from al the information,but when I arrived home I always close the trees again , it takes a lot of time, I agree :-) Wish you luck, keep on going

I know, normally I try to do 30 xp for all my languages a day and more..., but when I have the time I do much more. Today was such an exception I did 5070 xp, add an other language, it was raining, did my daily sport routine, I had nothing else to do,that gives me a great feeling. You will get there :-)

I started French back in 2013 and only reached level 25 in the past month, so it can definitely be a long road. But keep it up and you'll get there.

You did it, top. I finished my Spanish tree many times and als learn Italian, French and German from out English, it is difficult because I am Dutch, it takes me more time than English speaking persons, but never the less I keep on doing it. It will cost me some time to finish all the language trees, but that day will come :-), I am motivate because I made the move to Luxembourg, where they speak German, French and Luxembourgs, I want to understand them. We are building a house in Spain and when that is finished I make another move, so that motivate me to keep my Spanish tree closed every day :-) I wish you luck with your lessons

It's tough fighting discouragement especially when you're in college and have to focus on tons of loads my strike has been on and off, but it matters not as long as you still push yourself and finally get that trophy in the end. It's all worth it :) CONGRATULATIONS though
