What is the first language you have ever learned on Duo??
What is your first language you took a course for on Duolingo??
Mine is Spanish. Whats yours?
Lol. Would you say that it is your favorite language? I was actually considering taking the courses for it.
Probably French, however I'm going to take German all 4 years of high school
For me it was either German or Spanish, but I don't remember which I took first.
OH haha thats awesome! I am hoping to learn German eventually. Of course after I finish Swedish and Danish (:
Cool!! Wait, you are taking Swedish courses?? My best friend has a Swedish dad! Would you recommend taking the Swedish courses?
Yes I am (: I would definitly recommend taking a Swedish course! I know everyone has different opinions so it might be a different story for others but I find it quite easy and very fun to learn! I would also like to travel to Sweden one day so it will be useful. Plus another advantage is that Norwegian, Danish, and Swedish are quite similar so once you learn one it should be easier to learn the others (: By the way sorry for my bad English haha cx My keyboard seems to hate me right now and I don't know why
LOL. I'll try the Swedish course after German. Thanks for the recommendation!
My mom and dad both have German blood in them, and my dad grew up in Germany. When I was little, we both would speak German to each other and freak my mom out! But now that i'm older, he works more. I just take German on here.
I would. Portuguese is a charming language. There is a Portuguese language poem by a Brazilian poet named Olavo Bilac which describes the Portuguese language as a series of contradictory comparisons, at the same time beauty and vulgarity, splendor and death, and other such comparisons.
Portuguese and Welsh are the two languages I have discovered through Duo that I have enjoyed the most, and I am surprised by both.
Wow. That's amazing! Why did you pick Portuguese and Welsh?
( Sorry if I'm asking to many questions... I'm just considering taking another language course after German and I don't know what to do! )
I picked Portuguese because when I started 990 days ago, Duo only had 5 courses available for English speakers and I had already studied three. So my choice was between Portuguese and Italian and I went with Portuguese first.
After a while, I felt an urge to study Welsh. I don't know why, I just did. I started the tree and almost quit but somewhere around level 7, I really started enjoying it. Welsh is very straightforward and simple in both grammar and spelling but still very foreign to the English speaker.
Ooohh!! I luv the Spanish language!! It's a lot of fun! How long have you been taken Spanish courses for now?
I haven't taken any outside Duolingo. The Duolingo course took me 3 months, as did the Italian, Esperanto, and Greek courses. The German and French courses took me a little longer as the tree was updated for each of these courses when I reached the halfway point in each course. Hungarian has taken me almost a year as the other courses have needed to take precedence, due to my job. Now I am back to Hungarian and am almost finished the tree! When I finish the Hungarian tree, it will be my 12th tree (I've also done the Spanish, French, Italian, German, Esperanto, Greek, and Portuguese trees as well as the reverse trees for Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese.)
It was English , but I stopped it because I already know it . I began to learn German from English , also I learn Spanish ^^
Lol. How did you do English when you already knew it?? Spanish is cool, too!!
I'm still learning French. It's not too hard a little hard to pronounce somethings but still pretty easy!
Cool! I started out with German and Spanish, too. I want to take a Hebrew class though. Would you recommend it?
Ehhh Its really hard I haven't gotten past the first level plus it also makes you type in hebrew which is even harder lol. So I would recommend if you have the time to do it and the brains LOL
Portuguese, but I decided to focus on Spanish for the time being. I really enjoy Duolingo!
Yeah! I figure skate a lot! I take classes every week, too! You used to? Cool! Did you look it?
yeah, it really is! i loved making my own skating out fits!! they are so fun and pretty!! you?
Woah, you MADE your own skating outfits? That is so cool!!! I wish I could make mine, but my fingers aren't working the way I want them to whenever I have a sewing needle. But yeah, I love the way how the sequins designs seem to flow along with your program. It's SO much fun!!
well, i did use a sewing machine. i know, I LOVE how the glitter sparkles when you move!! it is so much fun!!!
IKR?!?! I have to say though, my favorite part of skating is the feeling whenever you land a jump PERFECTLY. It's like SCORE!! The bad thing is that I have to share a rink with the HOCKY PLAYERS. Luckily, they have a smaller space than us so we get to practice more!!
Spanish, and you can see I'm still doing it. I had did some others but didn't like them. So, I stoped it!
I Believe that i came to Duolingo firstly, for Russian? or Spanish?, Not sure. I created my account on December 15th, 2015.
I ended up doing the Spanish tree 217 days ago, quit it and did the Esperanto tree, getting all the way past the last checkpoint (i had maybe 10 skills left?) and Quitting in favor of Spanish again, Which i once again quit, and re-did Esperanto, quit, started Russian, German & Danish, Quit, Started Vietnamese, i reset the tree once but I've stuck with it for awhile and i picked up Spanish again. Korean snuck it's way into the mix recently also.
I've realized that i seem to remember words and grammar easier when i have more than one language. Of course, i don't do them all at the same time. :)
