500 days... :-)

Hello,

I have now spent 500 days here and time passed by so quickly, I did not even notice :-) Within the discussion forums and on the streams I have met a lot of amazing people! And this is for all of you :-)

500 days - for me this means as well 15 finalized trees and you may as well accuse me of chopping wood with a blunt axe, I can't disavow that I used the test-out option on most of them but at least I finished them off ;-) Well, it is not as ıf I am only learning languages since Duo nor that I only do so here...

So in order to keep this language related I want to add some things to this post: Spanish tapas for the party, French reggae, two dutch questions. I think I covered English by writing this post in English. Nothing German - that's my native language. And nothing Turkish because I simply lack any ideas...

You get the idea? I would be really delighted if you could add anything that is related to the languages you are learning!

Looking forward to seeing you here :-)

    You are awesome, too!

    Oh the fabulous tux! So pleased to see it again, and literally nothing says PARTY like this tux :).


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SteffiBookworm-

    Lento, mi amigo, como estas? Gracias por el tuxedo!!! You make me smile :-D And for the fireworks! And for the new trick you taught me:

    Without it I could not have added the delicious food pics to this post!

    I dare say this might result in a lingot bomb sometime soon ;-)


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

    Estoy bien amiga! I hope you are as well. I'm happy to see all my friends together in one place again:)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SteffiBookworm-

    Yes, that was what I hoped for, to see us all together again :-)

    Congratulations!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/J1ng3rT41ls

    wow!! YUM!!!!!!!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vc120

    I'm imagining you like this now:


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SteffiBookworm-

    I never posted for streak anniversaries nor finalized trees before. The lack of streams even drives me to do weird things ;-)


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

    Welcome to my world ;) Weirdness Rocks!!! ou Rocas de Rarezas!!! ou Rocce di Weirdness ou ... ;) Oh, and Congratulations Steffi :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SteffiBookworm-

    Not really, unfortunately I have to prepare some things for the coming work week, but I'd really rather follow the screen like that ;-)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Belkacat2

    Herzliche Glueckwunsche!! I'm so happy for you!!! ^^ Das Essen ist sehr schoen und lecker :) ich moechte es essen!! Since you are so amazing at languages -- any tips for us novices? ;) :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SteffiBookworm-

    Dankeschön Bekacat2!!! Und im Restaurant auf Deutsch bestellen ;-)

    Ich glaube, so gut bin ich gar nicht mit Sprachen, ich muss schon einiges dafür tun, und ich umgebe mich damit, Musik, Videos, verschiedene Sprachkurse, Nachrichten, Bücher... Und immer mal wieder sprechen und schreiben :-) und wiederholen, wıederholen, wiederholen...


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Belkacat2

    I think my crown phrase, when I visit Germany will be "koenne Sie das bitte wiederholen?" XD I find it very helpful :)


    [deactivated user]

      Congratulations, SteffiBookworm! 15 Trees! You are awesome in every way.... Thank you for all the help you give fellow language learners and here's to the next 500!


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

      That sounds like a toast RR :) Let's clink glasses!


      [deactivated user]

        Consider our glasses clinked!

        Chris! He brought out the suit!!! Lento is ready for a wedding in Wisconsin!!! Clapping, laughing, jumping up and down OH, and nice fireworks ;)


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/buck72

        That's right! It looks like the suit the guy wears when he's advertising the Wisconsin lottery!


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

        Oh no! I'm sorry that I have not seen that. Chris, what language do you have level 23? I can't find it in the flag list.

        My mouth waters when I have a look at these delicious French crêpes.

        We have fireworks, we have the food, we have the dance and the celebration. How about a music band? :)


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

        Bonjour Anne, J'admirais les crepes et a rire a la bande des hiboux. J'ai oublie de vous dire comme ils sont charmants et amusants :)

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

        Yum! I don't speak German so please tell me what Ein Schnitzel is. I think the rest of the sentence is 'with potatoes and salad' (bitte sehr)???


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Belkacat2

        A schnitzel is a type of meat that is fried and rolled with bread crumbs -- lecker :)


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

        Any kind of meat? chicken, pork, beef? Is lecker bread crumbs? How are you Bel? (What name do you go by?)


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

        Bel is nice :) So are Belle or Bella (like Beauty and the Beast) You pick ;) Sooo, lecker means tasty :) My new favorite word :) Belkacat, those fries are lecker! squirrel cat chuckle ;)


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Belkacat2

        Really any kind but I think it is mostly pork. No XD lecker means tasty. Je me sens assez bien. J'ai une presentation dans la classe francaise! Tu m'appelles Frieda ou Bel... I kinda like that :) Et toi? Ca va? :)


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

        Salat ist für die Kaninchen. Sagt mein Grossvater.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SteffiBookworm-

        Wo er Recht hat, hat er Recht :D


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

        It certainly is, we know what is best.

        Dutch questions:

        1. ❤❤❤ breed is het smalste huis van Amsterdam?

        2. ❤❤❤ lang is de echte Elfstedentocht?


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

        YUUUUUUUUUUUMMMMMMMMMMM


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

        음식이 참 맛있겠어요! (The food looks good!) :) Korean is actually my second language :)


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SteffiBookworm-

        Thank you, the writing looks really interesting! :)


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

        Thank you! :) The language is very beautiful. If it interests you, you may want to research about how the alphabet was created. It's a wonderful part of history! The funny thing is that I am Korean-American so some people assume I can't speak Korean while others assume I can't speak English. :D It's hilarious


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SteffiBookworm-

        Thanks, I'll look it up :-)


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IAmBrave16

        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SteffiBookworm-

        Thanks, I'll do so :-)
