Yep, funny to some extent... then again I'm sorry if I break someone's bubble here but it's sadly delusional.

Learning a language is not as easy as cramming vocabulary and grammar and then expect it all to stick forever, I'm sorry but it's the truth. We all here know that. You have to learn context, which takes time and varied situations to do so, you have to separate your native language's patterns from those of the language you're just starting to learn, you have to re-learn everything at least a few times in different periods of time to take advantage of the forgetting index, and that alone takes pretty much 300% the time it took you to first learn everything in the first place; you would have to learn 3,000 words at least (because trust me, a thousand words in Japanese is nearly nothing) AND grammar, let alone writing systems (which there are 3, one of which takes at least 2 thousand characters with at least 2 to 3 ways to read each for you to be able to read), all in 2 months or less for you to review the learned content in the next coming months. It's simply not that easy...

I see you're alpha testing the Japanese course. Did you have to download the Duolingo application again, and if so, did it affect your other courses? I don't want to create a new account either.
