It's something I would have liked to do before when I reached 100 and 200 days but never did. But now I'm publishing it here because I think it's interesting! When I started to use Duolingo I thought that I would use it for a couple of days and then stop using it but look at my streak now! Almost a year long!

I am still to finish some courses.

I'm not a Native English speaker feel free to correct me =]

Its a kind of thing (Not kind of stuff). App should be app (no capital A). And "A" should be "a". You're doing really well! I thought you were a native speaker!

Good job @Sunset! If you hadn't put that dislclaimer about not being a native English speaker, I'd think you were! :) Keep it up! I did notice a few mistakes but they are so minor. Even native English speakers make mistakes. Good job on your streak and on your English! Best regards/SbC

I'm currently brushing up on Spanish and next will be French but I would love to learn a bit of Portuguese one day...

Am I correct in believing it is similar to Spanish?

Also, congrats on the epic streak!

I would think you are a native speaker! However, instead of writing "stop to using the app" you could take out the to so it read "stop using the app" which is technically correct.

Hi as everyone has said your english is very very good . As no one has responded to your request here is the way I would have written it,,,,its not really wrong just ever so slightly different.

Its the kind of stuff I'd like to have done when I reached 100 days and again at 200 but I never did. So now I am publishing it here, because it's a very interesting thing! When I started to use Duolingo I thought that I would just use it for a couple of days and then stop but look at it now almost a year has passed.

Corrections are really really minor. I hope this helps, really great job

I'm also not a native English speaker (I'm Dutch), but with my 25 years of English experience I hope I can give you some helpful pointers. Al the suggestions are really minor and a lot are about style, not to correct an error.

  • 'a kind of stuff' -> 'something'

  • 'I'd like to do' -> 'I'd have liked to do' it's a thing in the past your referring to

  • remove 'before', the past tense in the verbs already point out that your referring to something in the history, no need to state that again.

  • "... and 200, so I never .." I would suggest to use 'but' instead of 'so' in your introduction I believe you're aiming for a contradiction, if so you should use but.

  • When you change the so in a but, then you have a second 'but' in a few words. I would change that 'But now" to "This time" .

  • because should be capitalized

  • that's -> this is, that references to something 'out of immediate reach / not present at the current time' this is for something inside immediate reach, like a few lines back :)

  • '100 days and 200' -> '100 and 200 days'

  • 'that just would use it' -> 'that I would just use it'

  • 'then stop to using the App' -> 'then stop using the app.'

  • '.. the App but look it now.' -> 'the app. But look at me now.' It was a very long sentence, after app is a good point to break it up into two sentences. Furthermore it isn't the apps accomplishment that you've reached a 300 days streak; it's yours!

  • 'Almost A year passed!' -> 'Almost a year passed!'

With my recommendations your message would read: It's something I'd have liked to do when I reached 100 and 200 days, but I never did. This time I'm publishing it here. Because this is a very interesting thing! When I started to use Duolingo I thought that I would just use it for a couple of days and then stop using the app. But look at me now. Almost a year passed!

Good for you! Your English looks pretty good.

I'm not completely sure what you mean by : " It's a kind of stuff I'd like to do before when I reached 100 days and 200, so I never did it. But now I'm publishing it here. because that's a very interesting thing!"

Do you mean you procrastinated doing it or wanted to delay doing it because the material was too boring or easy until you reached 100 days? But you made yourself do it anyway and wanted to post (publish) your experience - now that you have continued for almost a year?

I have rephrased what I think is needed as you are referring to the streak you are on as well as the app you are using without differentiating between them.

Hope this helps.
