After signing up on a whim in late December, it's crazy how much Duolingo has managed to become part of my everyday life. As someone who never really even had much of an interest in languages before, Duo has managed to completely change my mind and now I look forward to studying them everyday. It's insane to think about how much I know now that I didn't know just under two months ago. Hopefully I'll be able to say the same after the next two months, and the next, and the next, and the next. Grazie, gracias, and mulțumesc everyone!

I know how you feel, Duolingo has made me love learning languages! Unfortunately, I haven't been using it so much recently since I've been focusing on Japanese, but I certainly owe Duolingo for getting me into Japanese in the first place, and once the Japanese course is released I'll be using it every day.

I absolutely cannot wait for the Japanese course to come out. I only a few words in Japanese, which is purely what I picked up from watching subtitled anime, so what I know might not even be entirely correct. I joined sometime in January and I already love Duolingo.

I'm a rare case of someone who started watching anime after starting to learn Japanese, and once you know a bit, it's a great way to learn new words, recognize grammatical structures, and get some sense of how much you know. I've picked up many words from anime. Also, after I found an anime that I absolutely loved, my motivation for learning Japanese skyrocketed, so that's another big plus.

That i did not know! Or I did but then I forgot, because I have terrible memory sometimes :/. But now I know! And I can't wait! On the downside, I'm sick today and I hate it because my throat is really sore. The only word I can say without it hurting much is 'meow'.

That sucks, hope you feel better. I've been a bit under the weather myself lately.

Yeah. I originally thought I had gotten it from my dad, since he was sick recently, but he says if I had gotten it from him, I would have been sick last week. Also I hope you feel better as well.

Congrats on your 50 day streak! I'm with you in that Duolingo is a part of my everyday life. When I wake up, I usually do a lesson. Before I sleep, why not one more? And in between, lots more! I wish you the best in your language learning! :-)

oh wow dont you find it confusing to learn so many languages at once? how do you keep them seperate? I started 48 days ago and i only have a couple more skills left on my french tree and i have been resisting the urge to start the spanish tree until i am very confident in my french

i remember in highschool I was taking both french and spanish and although it helped a bit having done some french before spanish i found myself just getting really confused and ended up dropping spanish because i almost felt it was ruining my french. I once wrote an entire french essay and realised at the end that I had accidently written ¨y¨ instead of ¨et¨ every single time I wrote ¨and¨ lol

You seem very dedicated, and that I like. Unlike myself -- a heavy procrastinator -- I am amazed to see just how well Duolingo actually works for other people. I've been around for at least six or seven months and I'm struggling to learn Norwegian, and to top that off, I now have to start learning Italian because of my girlfriend. Nonetheless, congratulations; you've learnt quite a vast amount in such a short time. Sometimes I'll leave Duo for at least a week before trying anything again.

Thank you; I'm trying as much as I can. I just recently discovered that the web-based version helps more than the mobile application, so I might have to go through everything again and take more notes. Nonetheless, you have a good one too!

Congratulations....yeah after just a few days it becomes part of your routine. Keep practising everyday and don't give up if something doesn't stick in your head right away (been on the same welsh skill for about 2-3 weeks and still going at it hehe). Best of luck :)

Hi, it is crazy how fast the time is moving and suddenly you are 110+ / 365++ days on DuoLingo :-)
Have you already seen the Streak Hall of Fame (SHoF) - Platinum with people being on DuoLingo for 4 years? (thread linked in my posting below)

Do you learn Italian from scratch with/without any other resources?
How do you like the tree so far?

These are some impressions after 90 days on my own Portuguese tree and my resources I use (and I am still searching for): https://www.duolingo.com/comment/20736135

I am learning Italian from scratch, but with a background in middle/high school Spanish. (My Spanish is so low because I literally just took the placement test and then never touched it again, whoops...)

In addition to Duo I also read short stories from the internet and prefer to learn the grammatical concepts online before doing starting the actual skill in the tree just to make it easier.

I find the tree super useful for vocabulary (at this level at least), and for practicing, but not so much for learning new grammar where I like things to be clearly explained to me in text form.
