I am 55th learner of Guarani!
Guarani is such a cool language. It has its own unique style to it, but it borrows words from Spanish (like manzana and pan). I'm glad you're enjoying it too, and good luck with your studies! :D
Thank you! I've never learned a native American language before. It must be very interesting.
Congratulations! I wish you success with Guarani! Buenas suerte! (good luck in Spanish. :D)
I just started too! I'm super surprised there are only 50ish students right now. I might start announcing this on social media to help get more potential students. I just started and this seems to be a fun language to learn!!!
There arent that many because its from Spanish not from English :/ However it looks like an amazing(ly difficult) and gorgeous language :D
I totally agree. It is one of my new favorite languages, but it is very difficult. You'll see me at level 2 in a year LOL
I hear ya buddy! Very difficult, but duolingo's interface seems to make all the difference! We got this. :)
That's how I feel about a lot of languages! Okay X language is really hard, so I'll just wait until it comes to Duolingo.
Oh man. All the feels. I was tooling along in Greek, just trying to get a feel for the sounds all those mathematical symbols I'd so long known actually made... when I saw someone with a Guarani flag in addition to the Greek one.
I'd known since I first joined that I'd give that a whirl when it got out of the incubator.
I was startled how much I liked it. I feel so much less lost than when I started Hungarian, for instance. And that's without having Tips & Notes to speak of. Although in a way, they're probably more necessary. Duolingo doesn't have anywhere near the Guarani native user base it does for the other recently introduced languages, so authoritative responses to answers seem destined to be longer in coming.
I'll be honest, I kind of like the fact it only takes "vos" conjugations a lot of the time. People gripe about more local varieties in this or that language not being accepted. I feel like "vos and only vos" offends the vast swathes of the Spanish speaking world equally (excluding the obvious locales where it is commonly used). Non-vos folks, hold your rotten tomatoes, I'm sure the other options will be added soon enough :)
Mostly it just makes me sad that lakota and cherokee aren't coming for a while. Still enjoying it more than expected, though.
Just based on the numbers that show up on https://www.duolingo.com/courses/es I presume. Until the number of users reaches 1,000, I think, a precise number is displayed. However, they don't seem to update continuously, so a number of people can easily wind up claiming that they are all user number so-and-so.
