My first year (366) days on duolingo.
Hello there, I'm brazilian and I've never studied english before duolingo, I reached 366 days on duolingo, now I want to put my english to the test.
Pretty good job. I'm actually learning Portuguese, maybe we can study together.
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!
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.
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!
Yes, I've studied present perfect in details, because it is a challenge for portuguese native speakers.
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
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?
Hahahaha, I'm sorry but, there is no tongue-twister bonus level on duolingo yet.
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. :)
Parabéns por um ano com Duolingo! Estou estudando Português, eu tambem nunca estudado Português antes Doulingo. Eu adorar a idioma e quer visita o Brasil uma dia. I hope i said all the right haha.
Wow! Great Job! This is an amazing accomplishment. Keep up your spectacular progress. I have just started learning portuguese. =)
I think you've made a lot more progress on your English than I have on my Portuguese. Keep it up!
Congratulations! Really impressive. Keep going :) I'm learning French here and maybe Portuguese later...
Congratulations! :) 366-day streak! I'm amazed. :) And your English is very well. :)
Congrats on your streak! I'm looking forward to learning Portuguese and am going for a 365 day streak! So hard!
i am learning all of the languages but i do not have a streak by the way good job i am proud that you really got in to English and kept working
Well done! I wish I'd have your perseverance when it comes to studying Portuguese.
Congratulations on the streak. Your English is very good. I hope you get many chances to use it :)
Sincerest Thanks! but you are better than me. Congratulations on yours 369.
Congrats on the streak! Did you finish the whole tree for English? (and a quick correction: "but you are better than me"
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
Impressive streak. Keep it going!
Sequência impressionante. Continua, boa sorte!
I'm amazed by your perfect english, and am feeling very motivated by your perseverance! Keep it up!
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 :)
Thank you very much for your kind words. It's very kind of you. but I have a lot to improve pronunciation and speaking are my main challenge.
Great job! I hope I can reach that many days on Duo! I'm currently learning Portuguese, so maybe we can practice together.
Wow! Your English is amazing! Did you learn all of that from duo lingo or did you use other things? I don't know any Portuguese so it's cool to see someone who speaks it natively :)
Thanks Hayleygirl, I know little, but doubt much, and answer your quesion, I use other knowledge sources.
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 :)
thanks, yes, it is true, pineapple also means a problem, because, think with me, peal a pineapple is really hard, isn't?
congratulations! I just started learning Portuguese. Maybe you could help me learn while I help you with your English!
Wow! Good job - your English is better than many people who have lived here for years. Your hard work has paid off!
