I know it's not a huge deal, but I completed all the Spanish stories!
Took me over a year, but I finally did it!!
Edit: Thanks for the lingots!
You say that's not a big deal? I think you might be wrong. Completing the whole tree is a very big deal and very impressive. Congrats! Siga aprandiendo y buena suerte con tus estudios.
Your stats are impressive. Never saw so many lingots on a Discussion not yet twenty minutes old...bet you break a thousand before day is out.
Edit: 5 hours later and up to 780. 220 to go...
22 hours later and 1021 lingots! Reached the target with two hours to spare!
OMG! SO MANY LINGOTS. This guy should go upvote my post on making the lingot shop bigger so he can spend all those things!!!
I have also finished all the Spanish stories and thoroughly enjoyed them. I read quite a few of them twice since it's such a long time before new sets are added. It's a great experience when you go back to the earlier ones and notice how much easier it is to understand them than it was the first time you read them. I'm anxiously awaiting new ones. I've enjoyed the stories more than the podcasts, perhaps because they're more amusing.
Where do you find the stories? Or is each level considered a story? I am taking Italian so maybe there is a difference in the languages
Sadly there are no stories in Italian yet - just Spanish, Portuguese, French and German (I think).
I really hope they add them to Italian (and Russian) soon - they're really good! Entertaining AND useful!
Honestly, that is a big deal!
How much Spanish did you actually learn after completing all the stories?
Great job! The stories are pretty hard, so this is amazing! When you say it's not a huge deal, you are wrong! This is AMAZING!!! Great job on having the dedication and perseverance! Hope you have a great day!
That's great! I enjoyed the stories a lot. I haven't finished the ones they just added though...
OML Im legit so impressed this is not scarsam I legit wanted to finish all of them when I found out the duolingo stories were a thing!!
Keep it up. This is the most impressive thread I have seen. You are doing great, now for the golden owl. Keep up the hard work. :)
That’s a great accomplishment! There’s a lot of stories, so you should be proud. Also, you have a lot of lingots!!!!
Well done! I've been working my way through them all (as well as the French and German ones) for quite a while, but I came to a juddering halt tonight when I finished Set 14 (having done every story up until then) and found that everything after that is still locked! Can't understand why they'd make it visible if it can't be accessed. Did it let you do all 17 sets?
Take a look through what you've completed. I just had to do a story over again for it to become gilded and unlock the next set. Nothing in the story had changed, so I can't figure why it had returned to its former state.
Perhaps you're experiencing a similar issue.
Yes, I had the same experience where a story I'd previously read was no longer gilded and the star removed. I simply re-read it and the star was returned. Some people have complained that some of the stories have been changed and made easier. I haven't noticed that.
I haven't lost any stars and I haven't noticed any stories being changed - but I have solved the problem! There's a story called "The day you left" and its picture is gold to start with, so I didn't notice that I hadn't done it because it looked the same as all the gilded ones! I've just done that story and now the next set is unlocked. (Also that story is ADORABLE! Possibly my favourite so far!)
A few days ago, there was also an instance where a story didn't receive its star after I finished it. When I immediately went back and redid it, it did have a lot fewer sentences than it had just a couple minutes prior, with those it contained also being much simpler than before.
It was all gilded... I redid the last one to see if I'd missed something, but it didn't work... but I've just solved the problem. There's a story called "The day you left" and its picture is gold to start with, so I didn't notice that I hadn't done it because it looked the same as all the gilded ones! I've just done that story and now the next set is unlocked. (Also that story is ADORABLE! Possibly my favourite so far!)
congrats, Great achievement. After completing all stories did you notice an improvement in your comprehension? (depending on the level of comprehension you may have been beforehand)
Es algo muy admirable, has tenido la paciencia para hacer cada una de las lecciones e historias cada día, veo que tienes una racha de casi mil dias espero llegar a eso también. Lo bueno es que entre todos nos motivamos para seguir aprendiendo
Congrats! That sounds super challenging! I have a question: how do you get to the stories, because I cannot find them anywhere.
if your on the computer then its like at the top but if you are on your phone im pretty sure its on the bottom right i think im not sure
I've just tried the same story three times - in Spanish, German and French. So much fun! ¡Muy divertido! So viel Spaß! Tellement amusant! Così tanto divertimento!
Did you notice that the bride in the bathroom has different parents in different languages?
Firstly, well done! It is actually amazing! It is amazing how many lingots have been given. Good luck with your language learning (and your streak is over 800 days!)
Well done ! At which point in the process of learning are you now ? Can you speak Spanish fluently now ?
Continue the hard work !
Dude good job i know it doesn't matter much but im super surprised and proud! :) AHHAhahhaha Good job :)
Are there stories on the chinese tree? There might be, but I have never found any. Is that just because I haven't gotten far enough on chinese to see them?
That's what I call impressive! Not only finishing all the stories, but that steak is so high! I can barely make 100 days before I have to skip a day! As you can see, I only made it to 31 days. You're so commited. I think you inspired everyone who read this to try their best to learn their language to the fullest.
Yoooooo and your streak is 851~ Amazing and how was it lololol You have 1122 lingots, now you're rich xD
There are no stories for Italian yet - just Spanish, Portuguese, French and German. Hopefully they'll be added to other languages eventually.
They are only available for french, spanish, german, if you have none of these selected it won't show, but otherwise it should be next to the "discuss" and "shop" tabs.
I've completed the stories as well, and I was very excited when I came on the "full" version to see there were lots of new stories, but then realised I hadn't logged in, and when I did all my old completed stories were there instead of the new ones, can't we have the new ones as well please Duo?
