Most likely answer: because he thought it would be fun (turned out to be, obviously) ;)

Everybody goes at their own pace. The point is to be patient, don't worry about having to finish the tree faster or slower than someone else.

oooh ok den4ikdub. But be sure to know that you WON'T speak Esperanto after finishing the duolingo course. You first have to LEARN the individual words and the grammar clauses, and then and only then you have to USE the words in conversations, and then and only then will you be able to speak the language. IF I continue with Esperanto (and I am 99% sure I will), I will certainly need 6 months before becoming conversational - NOT fluent :) It's a life long journey. This I understand now. Apart from Italian, Dutch, French, English and German.. -all languages which I 'know'-, I've never studied a foreign language before. I started with this one, cause it was supposed to be the easiest. And it really is the easiest. The reason why 'they' only have 44 lessons and other languages have + 60/+70 is simply because of the fact that there are very few declinations. I mean; verbs don't change in a particular tense. e.g.: mi havas, vi havas, sxi havas, li havas, gxi havas, ni havas, vi havas, ili havas. So it always is havas, for every personal pronoun immaginable. past tense: havis futur tense: havos So, really, this language is much easier then for example english or italian. But you still have to LEARN the words! :)

yup. Learning vocabulary is what people underestimate. The grammar is simple enough that it can be learned in days, but memorizing enough vocabulary to be conversational takes months. One of the things that took me a while is to recognize affixes and words put together from several roots. It reduces the amount of stuff to memorize, but you have to get used to parsing the words into their individual parts.

@jirka:I first took your comment for cynicism, but suddenly I realized you didn't mean anything by it aha, malicious -moih- immediately thinking nasty stuff! cheers! French is a breeze for peepz in Belgium. Multilingual, federal, multigovernemental, miniscule, devised 'state', imposing people who don't want to learn languages to learn 4 at school.. anyway :D

:) no cynicism there. Actually much more that I'm impressed. I went through the tree last summer while also on vacation. But my wife was making angry faces at me when I spent more than half an hour on the phone doing duolingo rather than walking with them to the beach :)

Also it's probably that I am just bad at languages, plus I guess with age it's not getting any easier to learn new ones.

if you have the time, you should consult 'steve kaufmann' on youtube. A 70+ year-old guy in Canada who speaks a gazillion of languages. He learned them mainly through his own program 'lingq'. Really impressive guy. We all have grey matter. Furthermore you're a mathematician! WOOW! You have the brainpower man! :D

Laŭ vi, ĉu lavursoj belas? Kaj kion vi faros nun ke vi lernis kaj konas Esperanton? Ĉu vi instruos ĝin al viaj amikoj? (Deziras mi ke miaj amikoj volus lerni ĝin kun mi, sed ili ne volas, do ŭa! xD)

mi vidis du lavursoj dum mia marŝo al mia laborejo la alia tago; Ili transis mian irejo dum mi piediris. Mi ne sciis ke ili loĝis en ĉi tiu areo de Norda Ameriko. Ili iris pli granda ke mi anticipis.

Ankaux mi finis la arbon en ses tagoj, tamen ecx nun mi refaras la arbon, gxis mi atingos nivelon 25. Bedauxrinde, Duolingo ne havas EO --> EN arbon. Gxoje, poste mi finis la arbon, mi povas vidi la vlogon de Evildea per Youtube kaj mi povas kompreni proksimume 90% de liajn parolajn vortojn. Kaj Evildea parolas tro, tro rapide!
