My success...

Basically there are lots of threads about how Duolingo helped improve people and I might as well make a little quick short one since I wanna share my results as I will look back on this thread in the future.

Compliments / posts will motivate me more, too bad all my Lingots literally got washed away while doing lessons. :P

Basically, I NEVER took Spanish, so I never even knew how to do Spanish and it was obviously hard.

I got transferred to Spanish 2 HONORS in highschool because there was no regular / easy Spanish classes available.

I found out Duolingo, I've started playing it and stuff.

I got a 97 average in Spanish first quarter, then a 99 average in Spanish in the second quarter.

Basically, you guys can see what happened. I do not have enough time due to my phone about to die. [Yes, I made this thread on my phone.]

Thanks DUO!!!!!!

That is so seriously awesome!!! I took French in high school and a little Italian in College but it was so frustrating and hard. I never wanted the teacher to call on me. But I love French and I really wish Duolingo was available when I was in school because if it were, I would have done great and loved going to class. Keep going! You could become fluent!

5 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/iKurtie

Yes, I agree! I wish Duolingo came out earlier because when I was younger I loved to play games including learning games, by now if they made this program earlier, I would be fluent :P. Thanks for the support!

Well done. Congrats. You could go to the lingot store and buy (if you have enough lingots) A test were it gives you this score thing....i don't know how to explain it. They give you an example. The example showed a 5.0 i think... You should take it, and print it, and hang it, to remember how awesome you are. ;)

you should consider it even if your school doesn't offer it. spanish is one of those languages where there's a lot of practice available, which is what classes are for anyways.
