Today, on day 600 of my Duolingo journey, I completed my 7th tree: Norwegian! I enjoyed learning my first Scandinavian language and found it to be fairly challenging but extremely fun! Over the next 100 days I plan to review all my languages and keep the trees golden. On day 700 I will consider adding a new language! Thanks, Duo!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

I like your view; reviewing is also a very important part of learning.

I came (to the Discussion section) to seek inspiration because I was getting a bit tired. (After ONLY 50 days, yes I'm a wimp.) Your post is exactly what I need. It motivates me to keep going. Thank you for your admirable work!

Hi Steffi :) Totally sucks we can't write on streams anymore. I have to hijack this just to send you a message.

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

Hi Jim, but you can still write on streams, can't you? Just go to my profile page either from the list of people you follow or from the weekly/monthly/all time stats and wait a moment for the box to appear... Anyway, how are you? Is everything ok? How is your Spanisch? Best, Steffi

Hi Steffi, for me streams do not work. I did get my email notifications sorted out though. Spanish and French are going well, the rest is coming along, just slower. I'm doing good, I let the streak go, but now the interest seems to finally be picking back up. :) I hope all is well with you. :)

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

Thank you for your message :-) Yes, everything is ok. Seems as if you have already been switched to the new website layout, I guess you do not even see the activity tab any more. In my cellulars browser it is a mixture, when I use the favorite to the homepage I'm on the new layout, when I use the link to the activity tab I get the old layout. I really hope they sort this out soon - and add a different sort of "stream" :( My Spanish is scarcely used at the moment and I'll prolong this break for another few months... TR is still high priority and I attend another EN course at work. I am also lazy with FR, only music and we'll be in France and of next month for a week :-)

I joined have been doing a little French and even less Italian. I joined some groups on the mobile site that help with motivation a little bit. I remember your trip to France, I am sure you will have a great time. My facebook name is the same as this one, if you have facebook.

Thanks! I worked through every skill from the beginning....never tried to test out. I tried to do a reverse tree in French, but I didn't really like doing it that way. So I just review with Duolingo and supplement a bit with Memrise, and also I got some French and German books that I am slowly working my way through.

To be fair, I didn't give it much of a chance. I found the first few lessons to be very easy, but I know it would have become more changing very quickly. Mostly, I think I didn't like having to switch modes from being a French speaker to being an English speaker when I wanted to work on my other languages.

Ich beneide dich! Jajaja

I have yet to complete my first tree, and I have been a member of Duo for roughly three years now. In my defence, however, this is my second account (sadly, I forgot my password for my first account), and I have reset my trees about three times, which was probably a bad idea in hindsight. :(

Oh, and I see that you have learnt Russian, too. How do you cope with its infamous seven grammatical cases? :)

Even though I envy you for having completed seven trees, I really and truly respect and admire your achievements and success.

P.S Are you planning on learning an eighth language on Duolingo? :)

How many can you actually converse in, like really converse, or is it just to complete as many trees as you can and that's it?

I mean, I'm not trying to hate, but I don't see you being able to maintain all those languages to a high level.

Of course I can't converse in all of them, but that is not really my goal. Languages have always interested me greatly, and I love to learn the nuts and bolts of as many languages as I can. Duolingo is a very fun and convenient way to do that. I can carry on a simple conversation in German; I can understand French and Spanish pretty well, and I have fairly good reading comprehension in all of them. Also, I am a musician and a voice teacher, so knowing how to pronounce Italian, French and German comes in handy. But mostly, I just love learning. Thanks for not hating! :)
