Me, I'm not done yet in this lesson and I have an unbelievable number of tarnished catagories to golden up. I gave up doing them as I was having to redo the same ones over and over every day without making any extent of forward progress. So told myself, screw that! I'm getting out of here 'cause I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Soon, though, I will clean those babies up and stay working the Spanish lessons a fair while so that I can gain at least some extent of familiarity with the new language which I know is the key to fluency. Then I may get into the reverso.
I have been looking in books which I had found I could not learn Spanish using several years ago. I have a number of them and just could not utilize them to learn anything. Duh! Would you believe I can now understand all they say? And I do mean, everything in them! I can read that stuff!
Duolingo is amazing!
The thing is, guys, we are a part of history, here. And I am not joking. This a world effecting thing. It will have a great impact on all that is going on in the planet. My bet that even high end government officials will be using Duolingo around the world
It just clicked with me. Suited me, just as it is doing for millions of others.
I thought so too. But after doing some research, the only "card" that is translated into "carta" is a playing card (you know, poker and such). A birthday card or a post card is a "tarjeta" (tarjeta postal) in Spanish, not "carta". It's a false friend. I actually knew "tarjeta postal", but didn't draw the conclusion that it couldn't be "carta". :)
