Spanish, 385 days straight as of today, 1644 Lingots (I don't need any). My fav thing is it keeps me motivated.....and of,course being free. I was willing to start to see if I would stick with it rather than paying $100's. A random fact is I am nearing 70 and since I have had a major stroke I started it to work the brain and get my finger dexterity back by typing. This is the fun stuff....hardest was learning how to walk again!

That is great. We are never too old to exercise our brain. I am 78 and am relearning French. I was born in Maine and it was my first language. Yes, I am quƩbecqois!! I am a retired English teacher. I have been taking Chinese lessons for ten years. (not very good at it). Remember: Today is the first day of the rest of your life. My husband went through the same thing. Best wishes.

Its the best website to learn a language. And It's free! 5. I'm from Argentina, love sports, love the Audi R8 and my favorite color is blue!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElizabethBell02

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jacqui.Holder

yeah ok! oh nicee! I'm quite busy doing other stuff so its kinda hard! yup yup! from Buenos Aires!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElizabethBell02

Buenos Aires...so farrrrrr away....


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jacqui.Holder

why? where do you live?


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

Ok Elizabeth

lets see.

My favorite language on Duo is Irish.... The longest streak I ever had was around four weeks. Lol at the moment, 6 lingots, because I threw a ton at random peoples comments that I liked today. My favorite thing about Duolingo is Tinycards... I love them. Ugh they're so cute. But I love Harry Styles more. One more random fact... I'm listening to "Hey There Delilah" by Plain White T's at the momenttt


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElizabethBell02

6 lingots...well there's not much else to do with them eh? except throw them at people!!! yes tinycards r good


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Far-quaad

My favorite languages on Duo right now are Spanish, Welsh, and Dutch, but in a couple of months it will be Mandarin. I currently have my longest streak of 23 days. I have 165 lingots, I would have more but I am very fond of giving them away to users who leave excellent comments on discussions. My favorite thing about Duolingo is that there is no cost to learn a language, which is how it should be. I survive eating nothing but coffee, cranberry juice, and chicken and rice. Not kidding, I'm doing all three right now.


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

Chicken and rice! Yum!

Also, Mandarin might be more like a couple of years since it will enter the incubator in December, and the shortest courses take 3 months, and I highly doubt Mandarin will take that short. My bet is 6 months at the least. But I could be wrong.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Far-quaad

I heard a rumour, that had no source, that Luis was going to hire someone to do the course so it is finished quickly. Now that I know it's coming I will continue to talk about it until it is here because it is the no. 1 language I want to see here.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Far-quaad

yeah, I think it is unlikelly that they choose to pay someone now. But if there are enough contributing it could be done soon, I would like to see as many as possible


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElizabethBell02

xcellent...thanks for your input...

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

Ahh you definitely should, it's amazing! Thank you!! Six is good, I used to not even be able to have a streak of 1 day, but for motivation a long streak is great.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElizabethBell02

I'd especially like to see the Eiffel tower, but I still think London's better. ;) where r u from?


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

Was in San Francisco until I graduated from College. Now in the awesome city of Austin, Texas! Traveled Europe as a GI. Eiffel Tower was beautiful....took my Mom. London was great too. Luxembourg and Heidelberg were two of my favorite hangouts.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElizabethBell02

OK....never been to any of those except London!!!!! Being a Brit, I'm gonna say London is BEST....totally biased of course...;)

What is your favourite thing about Duolingo? That it's free, and it's a very effective method of learning a language! It's not a cheap, bad website, like you'd expect since it's free.

My favourit language is French. My lingest streak is 351 days. I have 3241 lingots. My favourite thing about Duolingo is ding the bot conversations. I am a senior citizen.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElizabethBell02

yeah, I agree the discussions are a great part of Duolingo...great streak by the way.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Usagiboy7

Howdy folks, could everyone who is saying they are home schooled please edit that out of your comments? Duolingo asks folks not to share their age to obscure the ages of those who are under 18 for safety reasons.

The spirit of that includes not sharing things like school grade etc. Being "home schooled" is a 99% indication that someone is under 18. So, it's gotta go. Thanks and sorry about that! But, your safety is really, really important. And there are also a lot of very young people here (like, there are some 4 year olds here) and we want everyone to help set a good example of internet safety practices. Again, thanks! :)

What is the longest streak you have ever had? My current one, 343

How many lingots do you have? 2234

What is your favourite thing about Duolingo? Oh wow... That's difficult. I guess the variety of languages here. I do love the community too!

And finally, tell a random fact about yourself: I plan on going to Uni in Australia.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElizabethBell02

cool -uni in Australia! Great idea tho! wow, that is ALOT OF lingots...I guess your awesome streak adds up to your lingot count..


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JJT60K

So far, my favourite language on Duo is Dutch. My longest streak is my current one, 214. I have 513 lingots, but I got given most of them. I love FUN Duolingo is!!!! Random fact: I really love sports, especially baseball, hockey, and basketball. :) (I upvoted too!!)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AngelaBowe4

The only other language I'm learning is Dutch. I've used several free, online courses and I do like Duo. I began learning Dutch because, after learning all I could about my maternal Dutch ancestry, I didn't want to end it there and decided to learn the language. My 9th great-grandparents came to New Amsterdam, New Netherland (now NY, NY) in the 1630's from Haarlem, Holland. My grandfather was employed by the Dutch West Indies Company and was sent to America to establish trade between the Dutch and Native Americans. I think an interesting fact about me is that I'm from an all male line of ancestors (800 years). The family name is Van Deusen (Deursen). Someday I hope to visit Holland.

Cool! Thanks for sharing!

  1. My favourite language here would be either Japanese or Russian, I just can't decide!
  2. I think my longest streak I had was 64 days.
  3. I have 372 as of now!
  4. My favourite thing about Duolingo is how it's free which makes it available to much more people, especially children.
  5. I can't fall asleep with my socks on!

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

Weird thing is, I know a lot off people who can't sleep with their socks on either. Myself included. Weird.

thanks for your input...keep up the good work.

My favorite language on Duolingo is French, for many reasons I won't delve into.

The longest streak I have ever had was around the 30s... I did not try to remember it.

Well... I have 1688 lingots and have yet to actually use them. I should probably just give them away. They serve no purpose for me!

Besides the community here, I love the style of language learning here on Duolingo. It's hard to explain, but the system really works for me and I highly recommend it for people who are already beginners in a language.

I'm not that interesting... But, I have a twin. Yay? XD And I love anime... And videogames cough The Legend of Zelda cough.

I like that Duo makes a hard thing like learning a language easy, as it is broken down to small steps. And it is addictive.
