From Average to Best in class

I'm a 12 year old grade 8 student, and i love learning new languages! I saw your TED talks video(Luis) -my dad showed me- and it was so cool. i loved what you guys did, and how you everyone who made this website thought about it. so creative and clever! i have only just started taking the french lessons, and i'm going to do the Spanish one next. Loving it on duoLingo! this has really helped me at school with my french skills, now i'm one of the best in class! Thanks you guys!

I knooow!!, by now i would be fluent in 2 more languages Plus we all know there are studies that say that it's far easier to learn languages when you are younger and it's less likely you will have a thick accent lol Cheers!

My grandpa tried to speak English once... he tried to pronounce "sock" but it turns out he spoke it like "sook" instead. I can't wait for the Chinese-English one to come out so that he could actually learn English!

Wow, how long did it take to reach lvl 25 in 5 languages??

February 14, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lolaphilologist

It just happened couple of months ago, so 7/8 months, I estimate. Much faster in French, because I was already fluent, a little longer in German, Italian and Spanish, which I had studied, and the longest in Portuguese, which I just started in August.

If you want more inspiration, watch this guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOiXtWcQ8GI

Well I should clarify that he didn't use duolingo. But learned the languages the way I learned Enlish, by reading, writing, conversing, and watching movies in those languages etc.

He spoke 20+ languages by the time he was 16!
