Ok, I know. You clicked on this post an thought "Ugh, one more, jeez". But I think you might like it:

When I was 8 years old, I lived in a little countryside town. After going to school and playing for uncountable hours outside by the river, and iPad was always a good way of entertaining myself indoors.

My parents are against gaming and stuff, but they thought that knowing how to use an iPad and having this connection with technology was a good thing. They also knew that an iPad isn't an iPad without some cool, innovative apps; and they did find many (Lumosity, KhanAcademy, Paper53) but the one I used the most was: Duolingo.

At the time, I was just practising the German I already knew and having fun with those weird characters and the parrot (which I later noticed was a green owl). I started growing up, and my love for languages grew alongside until I remembered the interactive parrot app I used when I was younger. And here I am. Yay!

The funny thing is, looking back, I would never have imagined I would get to be one of those lvl 25's I always followed with over 1 million XP, and, that I would know so many languages. And here I am, goldening trees, learning new languages, and having fun!

Thanks for reading, and please take this as something inspirational. Especially for the young kidos out there.

Gracias for posting this. You did Lumosity? I did that for awhile but then I just didn't find any point in it anymore.

The funny thing is, looking back, I would never have imagined I would get to be one of those lvl 25's I always followed with over 1 million XP, and, that I would know so many languages. And here I am, goldening trees, learning new languages, and having fun!

Wow! Isn't it kinda funny that the best stuff happens when we least expect it? Good job and keep up the good work! Best regards/SbC
