Hi Elizabeth! What skill are you up to? I have only just finished "Verbs: Past Imperfect", but i have 4061 lingots!!! (look for me in the streak hall of fame here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/24089036)

August 25, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ElizabethBell02

Hey Emily, I started this discussion yesterday, and now it has over forty comments!!! Hardly any of the other new discussions have that many comments! So, we're both on level 16, although I only have 82 lingots. Erm, I'm up to the skill 'past imperfect' although I have heaps and heaps of skills which I need to strengthen, coz their 'bars' have gone right down. And I've just realized; 'Verbs: past imperfect is the same skill that you're up too!

I had a look at the link, but I couldn't see your name! What section do I look in?

August 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

All of my skills are gold except for 8 skills, and I keep trying to strengthen them! On the streak hall of fame, I have a 870 streak and a silver owl (or medal?) and the SHoF gets updated every Sunday, so tomorrow there will be a new streak hall of fame post. What stuff have you bought from the lingot store? Did you know that on Christmas day (and a little before and after, I think) a new french skill comes up on the lingot store called "Christmas", so when Christmas day comes, don't forget to buy it! (I have got everything from the lingot store including "Christmas", "Streak Freeze" and "Double or Nothing".) BTW have you got timed practice?

August 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ElizabethBell02

LOADS of my skills aren't gold!!! Lots to strengthen!!! Erm, I've bought everything I can from the lingot store (except 'double your lingot wager' and 'streak protector'. OK, I'll remember about the Christmas skill! and I've managed to find your name on the streak of fame at last! Keep it up!!!! Just wondering, have you bought the streak protector just in case you accidentally miss a day?

August 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

Oh, I cross edited!!

August 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ElizabethBell02

What does that mean? And yes, I have timed practice. and I've just seen that yes, you have streak freeze. Oh, I think I see what you mean now by 'cross edited.'

August 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

Yes, it has saved me so many times! Once we went on a weekend holiday without WI-FI, so on the Friday, early in the morning, I did duolingo, and I also did duo late at night on the Sunday evening, so on the Saturday, I didn't lose my streak!

August 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ElizabethBell02

Good. so I guess you always have a streak freeze in handy!!! one way to use up lingots, although you'll always get more lingots as your streak gets better, I suppose!

August 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

We are both cross editing! ;)

August 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

Wait, I have actually got a 877 streak! Why does it say that i have a 876?!

August 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

Oh, it's fixed now! (duo saying that I have a 876 day streak when I actually have a 877 streak)

August 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ElizabethBell02

no idea...I wrote something and it's at the bottom of the discussion. And, what's fixed??? The cross-editing? and we could start a new discussion 'Elizabeth and Emily' or something like that...

August 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ElizabethBell02

Hi Emily, I've started a new discussion on England, check it out...however we can talk on this discussion too. Remember, we HAVE to keep our comments Duo related, otherwise they WILL be deleted!!!

August 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

J'ai 52% de maîtrise en français. Et toi? Devons-nous essayer de parler plus français comme ça? Also, why don't you favourite my knitting terms in tinycards? It has 39 likes so please make it 40!

August 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ElizabethBell02

my French fluency is 44% (that is what you asked, isn't it?) and, I've favourite your tinycards.

August 29, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

Bravo, c'est exactement ce que j'ai dis! Merci pour le favouritisme ma "TinyCards"

August 29, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

Shall I start a discussion where we all ask questions in french? You could say things like "where do you live", (in french) to which you could answer something like "in a village next to a forest" (even if you live in a big city). Or if you ask "how old are you", you could answer "1843 years old" (even if you are 2 years old!) and also, I could put a law up saying: NO GOOGLE TRANSLATE!

EDIT: I have now posted it here :https://www.duolingo.com/comment/24228535 please upvote it!

August 29, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

Wait, is that what this discussion is supposed to about?

August 29, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

BTW for a few days I have changed my "I love duo" picture to a purple flower that I grew. I also took this picture with my camera!

August 29, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ElizabethBell02

nice picture, by the ways. I don't really know enough French to be able to ask lots of questions, but I'll join your discussion anyway and do my best!

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

When did you start learning French on duo? It tells you at "Learning since" in: Settings, Profile. I have been learning since 2015-02-15. (And I can't be bothered to type this out in French!)

September 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

And also, which picture do you think i should stick with: the purple flower or the "I love duo" heart?

September 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ElizabethBell02

count on me! and please join the Welsh discussion.

September 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

okay, but i don't know one single welsh word!

September 8, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ElizabethBell02

that's fine, but you don't have to know Welsh to use the discussion!

September 8, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

BTW there are 2 of my comments/questions near the bottom of my discussion...

September 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ElizabethBell02

I've started learning in May 2016....well, you could swap between the flower and heart. Flower one month, heart another, and so on. I'm not sure which comments you mean on your discussion, BTW.

September 4, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

The comments about fruit and XP are the ones that I mean. Did you learn any french before duo? I learnt a little when I was younger. Good to see you but I forgot to ask you for your email! I'll have to wait until next week. See you soon!

September 5, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

BTW shall we have a kind of xp contest against each other starting on monday?

September 5, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ElizabethBell02

Yes, I learnt a bit of French using Rosetta Stone!!! Yes, good to c u too...and I forgot to ask for your email as well! Hopefully one of us remembers next week, coz then we'll be able to talk properly...

September 6, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ElizabethBell02

So, what kind of XP contest do you suggest? Something like, who gets the most on each day? Then we add up the number of days that we've got the highest XP, and the one with the highest number of days wins? Or just who gets the most XP in one week?

September 6, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/EmilyMMM2015

I mean (for the xp contest), that on the leader board, it says each month, week and all time how much xp we have got in one week. So we could all work one week try to get as much xp as possible, and on Sunday we can see who has got the most. ;) BTW I have a 888 streak!

September 6, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ElizabethBell02

Sure! Just you and me or what??? https://www.duolingo.com/comment/24351429 Here's a discussion on Wales for you to join!

Hello people! Nice to meet you all! My name is Woof. I can only speak English but I'm learning French, Spanish, and Japanese.

August 25, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ElizabethBell02

Hello Woof!!!!! thanks for joining the discussion. Keep going with French.

August 25, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Woof.

Merci. You too! Your level is very impressive! Have you finished the tree?

August 25, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ElizabethBell02

Oh no! I think there are 25 levels in French! You're doing well with Spanish.

August 25, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Woof.

Merci. But you can finish the tree before level 25 actually. I have seen some people who finished theirs at level 11. Are you planning to take other languages when you finish French and Welsh, or will you take your them further, or neither one?

August 25, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ElizabethBell02

yes, I think the trees vary in length. I'm not sure whether I'll take my languages further yet. How about you?

August 25, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Woof.

I'm not planning to take Japanese further, but I will take Spanish. As for French, I'm not sure yet.
