Wow. Good English. Where did you learn that phrase? Not from Duolingo. Congratulations on learning so much other stuff on Duolingo. I would give you an A+.

Thank you very much, I've learn this sentence on the internet, are you a native englsh speaker?

Hi adrianojp2000! Wow! That is quite a streak. How has it gone for you? We have some new features on the way that will help you put your English to the test :) Why are you learning English? Would love to hear more!

April 21, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/adrianojp2000

Hello kristinemc, how are you doing?, I've been studying english for pleasure and to make friends around the world. I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done.

April 21, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/kristinemc

Thanks for replying! Your streak (and English) is impressive. (one minor edit :) to make friends).

Excellent use of both present perfect progressive and present perfect tenses....congrats!

April 24, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/adrianojp2000

Yes, I've studied present perfect in details, because it is a challenge for portuguese native speakers.

April 27, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/emeyr

Just as the Portuguese subjunctive tense (present, past and future) is for us native English speakers!

hello,kristinemc. I am sorry to interrupt you here. In your reply, I find a word"streak", however, i looked up it in dictionary which says that streak means run naked, so I can't figure out the meaning of the sentence about" this is quite a streak ". Would you explain me that, thanks so much

April 24, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/vic3685

Well, a "streak" has other meanings too. As you can see here http://www.wordreference.com/definition/streak, it is also "a short stretch or run, esp of good or bad luck". In the Duo community, a "streak" is the amount of days you have worked in a row, the little flame icon next to your lingots. Right now, you are on a 32-day streak. Even though it is not short at all, you can see how it would be a stretch of days of activity.

Ok try this on for size:

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked. If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, Where's the peck of pickled peppers that Peter Piper picked?

April 22, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/adrianojp2000

Hahahaha, I'm sorry but, there is no tongue-twister bonus level on duolingo yet.

April 22, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/SD-77

Don't mean to nitpick, but omit the that in the last sentence ;)

April 24, 2014

I can't even type a tongue twister correctly.

Congratulations! After I reached 100 days I decided to make one year my next goal (in regards to duration). Reading your post reminds me that I am 33% there and encourages me to keep working. You should be proud of yourself and find some way to celebrate. :)

Hello! I always thought persistence was a characteristic of Brazilian people (I'm from Brazil, too), and you're a great example of this peculiarity. Your English level is excellent, and I guess you could easily have a conversation with a native speaker. Congratulations! I'm pretty envious of you now, guy... haha

Your English is quite impressive. Not to brag, but I helped native English speakers with their university essays in the past, despite not being a native speaker myself. From the few sentences you wrote, you have better grammar than a good percentage of the Internet. Be proud :)

Congrats! I have a portuguese question. Is it true that "abacaxi" means both "pineapple" and "problem"? Like "I have a big pineapple" also means "I have a big problem." I met a Brazilian on my recent trip to Chile and he told me this, but he also seemed to have quite a sense of humor :)

April 24, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/adrianojp2000

thanks, yes, it is true, pineapple also means a problem, because, think with me, peal a pineapple is really hard, isn't?

April 24, 2014
