What's Your Duolingo Story?
How did you find Duolingo and why? I'd like to hear all your stories out there! (I might share my story, but it's not very good:)
I was at a friend's house, sitting under the air conditioner which was set to 16 degrees Celcius while outside was 35 degrees Celsius. I know 16 is too cold and not healthy but by that time I did not have an air conditioner at home so I wanted to feel some cold in summer.
Then my friend somehow said "I learn German from an app and it is great" and I asked the name of the app. I suppose you can continue the story after that. :)
I went on a trip to Italy without knowing any Italian. I really enjoyed it and I wanted to learn the language so I could come back next year. I asked some of my friends about apps to learn languages and one of them said she learned Spanish from Duolingo. I decided to try it out and I have now completed my Italian course :)
I found out about this because I wanted to learn French. I hear a song I love and I didn't knew what the words mean, so I started learning. I quitted but about 3 months ago I heard another song I think is really catchy in Italian, so now I am learning Italian for about 3 months. I haven`t learned it continuously so now I'm only on 67th day strike instead of 90 (I forgot one day after 20 or so days, and started over, and even before that I also forgot after 7-10 days, maybe now I would be on 100 days strike)
