So far I have done three skills of Esperanto. I have had past experience, but today I'm challenging myself to finish at least half of the tree! Wish me luck!

1:30: It begins!

2:00: I finished the first checkpoint!

3:20: 2nd checkpoint finished!

4:40: 1/4 through the 3rd checkpoint, progress slowing down :( (I took a break in between)

5:30: Done for the day. Satisfied with progress. Will pick up tomorrow. :D

THE NEXT DAY...

8:15: Let's do this!

10:40: I took a break! :( I finished future/past

2:15: taking a break, a big one bec. i'm exhausted from yesterday

The day AFTER...

8:30 Well well well...

9:25: Finished date/time

Yeah, that sucks that it hasn't come out yet. This speedrun isn't really serious. This is just to see how perseverant I am :)

if you really want to learn it, you should do it it slowly. otherwise it'l all just fly in one side of your brain and out the other.

Mi ne scias lerni Esperanton, mi volas lerni por amuzan. :/

Is it actually effective to learn this way or have you forgotten a lot of it? I'd imagine that flying through the skill tree would be ineffective because you might forget huge chunks of information.

Learning for fun, not to actually learn the language.

Mi volis lerni esperanton por amuzigi min. Tial mi rapide finis la arbon (dum 6 tagoj), kaj ankaux mi volis atingi nivelon 25. Do mi ankaux rapide atingis nivelon 25 en 103 tagoj. Do, malgraux mia nivelo de 25, kiu mi atingis en nur 103 tagoj, cxu mi estas nun intera esperantisto aux ankoraux komencanto? Se mi honeste pensus pri tio, mi taksus min ankoraux komencanto. Cxu mi forgesos esperantajn vortprovizojn? Kompreneble, mi forgesos esperantajn vortojn! Sed mi ankaux kelkfoje forgesas anglajn vortojn, kaj mi estas angla denaskulo! Lerni novan lingvon estas vojagxo sen destino. Aliflanke kaj samtempe la vojagxo mem estas la destino.

(translation for people too lazy to do it(roughly))

I wanted to learn Esperanto for fun to me. So I quickly finished the tree (for 6 months), and I also wanted to reach level 25. So I also quickly reached level 25 in 103 days. So, despite my level of 25, which I reached in just 103 days, if there is now an intermediate Esperanto speaker or still a beginner? If I honestly thought about it, I'd put myself still a beginner. Did I forget Esperanto vortprovizojn? Of course, I forget Esperanto words! But I also sometimes forget English words, and I am an English native speaker! Learning a new language is a journey without a destination. On the other hand and at the same time the journey itself is the destination.
