Finished my Portuguese Golden Tree! My first one!
I just finished my Portuguese golden tree after spending 8 weeks in Rio. I am super excited about this language and the opportunities it has given me!
Ah, já que você foi para o Brasil sugiro comprar um teclado com acentos, vai te ajudar muito. Você conhece o pronome vós e essas coisas?
Do you mean you just needed 8 weeks to complete the tree from 0% to 100%, from scratch with PT as the 1st Romance language?
Or what was your total, including starting the tree in your own country?
Have you been in Rio for private tutoring lessons?
How many hours / day?
I am also looking forward for some (speaking/grammar) tutoring after I finished the Memrise courses, Mondly and Duo tree.` I think it is very ideal to refresh / enforce language material AND practice daily speaking.
Do you know Tom from youtube and his Duo announcement thread?
He is from UK and goes for 1 year abroad to learn languages.
He started with French...pretty impressive his talk just after 4 weeks / with zero knowledge before.
I had a pretty solid knowledge of Spanish before going so that helped me. But yeah I pretty much did the tree in 8 weeks by testing out of most skills. I was in Rio for a mission internship and we took language classes as part of it. I have not seen Tom on youtube but I will check it out! Thanks!
finished my tree too -not really speaking but I am able to read somewhat.....man sounds fun except for the bugs......
I also finished last year. Now redoing it and strengthening to refresh and work on being more fluent
