Today is my 1000th

Wow – what an awesome 1,000 days. Thank you Duolingo, and thank you to all the friends I have met along the way. You are all incredible. My adventure has spanned three states and two countries. Some days are a pleasure. Some days are just torture. I can remember nights scrambling minutes before midnight trying to beat the clock. It has been an adventure and life lesson. And I am extremely grateful to everyone who challenged me to continue and push forward. Buena suerte y gracias mis amigos.

P.s., Great streak, and so many languages. Very impressive.

July 22, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RobertKoeblitz

Wow, the bulb just flashed. For the past year I kept hearing people use a word I thought was “vale” in really inconsistent ways. I wasn’t familiar with “dale”, so I looked it up. And then it clicked for me. I was not distinguishing between the two. So, DiegoDutra, can you please tell me your English translation from “dale dale”. Muchas gracias,

July 22, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EdouardC2020

"Dale, dale" = "Go, go." "Dale, dale" is an encouraging expression to continue and keep doing what you're doing.

July 23, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RobertKoeblitz

Thank you EdouardC2020, that helps a lot! It all makes so much more sense now. It had always baffled me.

RobertKoeblitz. You're welcome, amigo :)

July 24, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/donmac34

In German there is a similar expression. "Dalli dalli!" which is used to tell someone to hurry up.

July 24, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EdouardC2020

donmac34. I didn't know that. It's really interesting.

July 24, 2019

Danke! I'm surprised I haven't heard that one from my German husband. LOL!

July 26, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MindfulHaven

Oh really!? There's a strikingly similar expression in Korean that's said like, "Bali, bali!" This directly translates to, "Hurry, hurry!" (Hurry up).

@EdouardC2020, that's it! Thank you for answering ^^

RobertKoeblitz. You give me inspiration when I feel that I've been slogging away for so long and I still can't understand when I watch a movie or listen to radio. But, saying that, I've learned that it takes a lot longer to master a language (especially at age 74!) than I thought it would. There are so many different aspects to it. Reading, writing, grammar, idioms, local jargon, regional dialects, etc; and, as for hearing... well, Spanish must be one of the most difficult languages to comprehend when hearing it spoken because Spanish nationals speak so fast! And, of course, they drop endings, many don't sound 's' sounds, run words together, and all the other manners of speech which make individual words difficult to distinguish and interpret for an estranjero. I have had to move my goal posts and now they are so far in the distance I can hardly see them! But, I don't mind that now. I just keep on practising every day, because I believe that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. And every day for me, is one step closer to those far off goal posts. When I look back, I can see how far I've come and how much more I've learned. My motto is 'Keep on keeping on'. So, thank you again for your encouraging comments and, many, many congratulations for your achievement!

Obsessed can be fun. : )

We'd been without power for nearly 3 days. I drove 45 min to the nearest town with internet access to do my 30 XP - just got home to find we are back up and running! Lucky there is a great thrift store and Walmart in that little town. Made it seem like I wasn't crazy enough to go all that way just to use the library's computer! I'm protecting a measly 147 streak. What lengths will I be forced to go to in the future?? I'm eager to find out. I love this website. My hat is off to you, Robert.

July 22, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RobertKoeblitz

KJBESSA, I love any note that starts with "obsessed can be fun". We really need to sit down and have drinks one day. I understand exactly what you're saying. It can turn crazy in an instant. Did you have phone service? You can do this on a phone, tablet or computer.

After a 1000 days from using this app would you say you are flowing in Spanish?

July 23, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RobertKoeblitz

Quick answer and hopefully a motivator: Duolingo has helped me read and write Spanish, and also understand the grammatical points that had been confusing. To a lesser extent, it has helped me "hear" Spanish, although many native speakers still tend to slur, cut off words and use a lot of local phrases that don't make sense without explanation. My biggest weakness is speaking. My pronunciation is poor. So, I have started augmenting Duolingo with intercambios, basically an hour or two speaking with a native Spanish speaker who is trying to learn English. It is a win/win for language and great opportunity to merge into Spanish culture even though language is still a barrier.

Jermaine, it is a process. It is funny and frustrating. If you have realistic expectations and commit to working a little each day it will become fun and rewarding. Just, embrace the process.

July 23, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dee454013

Congratulations! 1000 days can be hard work but also fun like you say. Good luck with your Spanish journey and thanks for the tip regarding intercambios. Ill look to doing that when I get further down my tree.

July 23, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Neoretro

Why not just watch Spanish movies and listen to Spanish radio too?

I bet there are even different dialects even with Spanish people, so naturally you don't want to sound like a robot who's reiterating everything from here.

You know what you must do.

Wow that’s impressive. Have you become fluent in your languages after so many days? I’m at 260 but nowhere near yet.

July 23, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RobertKoeblitz

Thank you Joe. My thought to you is just to be realistic. I shared above, Duolingo has helped me read and write Spanish, and to a lesser extent hear the words and speak. I have no aptitude for language, which is sad because I enjoy speaking Spanish. I had no prior classes, fluent family/friends, etc. Maybe you have a better background. I do not know how hard it is to learn French. I can fumble through simple conversations pretty easily. But, I do not consider myself anywhere near fluent. I think true fluency comes from years of practice and at least some complete emersion. For your own sanity, enjoy the process, it is amazing to carry on conversations and learn about other cultures. If you target in on something you can achieve, it will be fun and rewarding.

July 23, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/joe801674

Thanks for coming back to me Robert. Good to hear someone else’s perspective. I guess unless you can immerse yourself fully into the language and culture it will always take a long time to become fluent. I’m enjoying learning a new language from scratch and have made good progress. But I’m a bit impatient and would like to be conversational by now...but I’m not and will keep preserving. My multi-lingual Swiss girlfriend (5 fluent languages) puts me to shame so I’m very determined.

Congrats on reaching a 1,000 day streak!

July 24, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mutawahesha

@RobertKoeblitz 1000 days. it's almost 3 years. does it worth to sit and use this app daily for few years? how much time do you dedicate for it daily? Till what level does this app help you to reach in Spanish? What is your result?

July 24, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RobertKoeblitz

Hi Mutawahesha. I asked the same question when I started. So, my answer to you now is “yes, absolutely”, it was worth the time to me. If it was not worth my time, I would have stopped. The beginning levels are quick. They get harder. You can get by with 5 or 10 minutes a day, or hours if you want. I learn something new every day. Some is simple vocabulary. The harder part for me is gramatical structure, comprehension and pronunciation. The language builds on itself so you constantly refresh what you learned before. To me, the “daily” aspect has more to do with a commitment to the process. If you take a day off, why not two, or possibly a week? Next thing you know, you start from scratch again. Maybe the way to look at it is: Three years is going to go by. In three years, you either will, or will not, know a foreign language. It looks like your favorite is Japanese. Which do you want to be?

July 24, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mutawahesha

Hi :) The commitment to do the same thing each day is a real challenge for me. I get bored easily and need something new. Until now my maximum is one month. But what make me really going is a challenge or/and a competition. Wanna be friends and compete with each other? As for languages, let's say...There is a language I must learn and it's Arabic. I've started it here on Duo 5 days ago :) Japanese is like a sweet piece of cake next to a cup of coffee for me. It's easy to learn and number 2 in my list :) French (B1) and German (B2) I already know and speak, but they are rusted, need refinement (will be after Arabic and Japanese). As for Swedish. I've worked in a swedish/norwegian travel agency for 3 months, so I wanted to pick up a language until an intermediate level. But I resigned so I put Swedish on a shelf. So my priority is arabic. And I'm really serious this time and sure I will succeed :) Also I want to say that your commitment is admirable and all guys who do it every day for few years, it's really something :)

July 24, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RobertKoeblitz

I just followed you. Arabic seems like it would be a very difficult language. You are a tough one. And, the competition is on. I was just in Sweden and Denmark. I thought I had overslept the first morning. I am not used to daylight at 4 a.m.
