Grandpa, let's have a conversation!

My grandfather is at the age of 60. For years I haven't been able to communicate with him much. Ever since I started using Duo-lingo to learn, I have been able to have day to day conversations with him. You have no idea how happy I was to be able to understand him. I love my grandfather with all my heart, and for Duo-lingo to do this, it has made me very happy.

Thank you very much Duolingo!

My grandfather has passed and I never got to meet him, but one of the reasons I began learning Japanese was in a way to honor him, even if I couldn't do it in person like I would have wanted.

I'm very happy for you.

You have determination and faith. If you believe that you can conquer your achievements, then you are able to do anything. I'm very proud of you.

Ps: Your story is very good. You should make a book or even a comic about it.

Mine passed last month, but he's the one who began teaching me Greek, and was very passionate about the language. I'm going to become fluent to finish what we both began :)

I hope you continue to grow closer and closer with your grandfather. The art of language is a very beautiful thing, especially when it brings people together. I'm currently learning Spanish so that I will be able to communicate with my mothers side of the family. Btw, love your profile pic, anime is my life XD

Also, you have a Great Spirit in you. Try Speaking with him Everyday and you can also ask him how to say this word or that word in Japanese.
