After just over two years and a 725 day streak I have finally achieved level 25! It was hard work and I am proud of it but still cannot hold meaningful conversations in German. However on New Years Eve I am going to a 12 hour celebration where almost all the guests speak German. I must brush up on my flirting skills. I will have to be good, I am 75 ears old! Thank you everyone for your support. Alles Gut, und Gutes Neue Jahr!
Happy new year to you - and keep your eyes off the flirting skills offered by Duolingo. Just be yourself, you seem to be a nice guy. Don't be afraid of your skills. Just try it - it is surely not the first time you had to jump into unmarked territory. After all, you still have hands and feet to aid your conversation.
Douglas, congratulations. Really i know how is it. In this moment i'm in my level 22 of german, is a hard work but after a year and a half i can understand many words, i wish to be fluent one day , it will be a nice experience. that's one of my goals in my life. greetings. (excuse for my english, really i'm a native spanish speaker.)
