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.
yup same, only that all my grandparents died on both sides and yea I'm learning chinese to honor him
I'm sorry about your grandfather passing away! I'm sure he would be glad to know that you began learning Japanese to honor him <3 ! :D
That is an emotional story to me! You should make a documentary even of it! Thank 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.
Thanks! I also like drawing anime and I think I'm pretty good at it. Maybe I will! ☆⌒(≧▽° )
Thats awesome! Keep learning and maybe someday you will be able to converse entirely in Japanese!
That's great! Duolingo also helps me communicate with foreigners easily and it also helps me adjust the grammar.
congrats ...I hope one days I will be able to speak with your granpa too ;)
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 :)
What I'd like to add to this is, speak with him everyday! It's priceless time
Aw, my condolences. I'm glad you strive to accomplish something you both started! I'm sure he would be proud of you!
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
Yes, language is a beautiful thing! Also, thank you. Anime is good!!! ♡
I never really seen my grandfather because he went to Japan for Medical Treatment and I really wish I can see him but he doesn't really want to see my family. I also come from a Jamaican and Guyanese Family, The other side of my family is Asian
