Celebrating Blinging Out My Tree
This is a good-bye post & a thank you. Today I accomplished my Duolingo goal. I started Duolingo 836 days ago, and today I have blinged out my Spanish tree. It is now completely gold. Using Duolingo and a few other sources, I'm now a solidly B1 Spanish speaker and working very hard to become B2. Duolingo has played a supporting role in getting me this far (although I have supplemented with a lot of other online classes and real-life speaking practice), and so for that I would like to thank EVERYONE at Duolingo.
As I leave Duolingo, I continue working towards my ultimate goal that I set for myself in 2017 to achieve a strong B2 level by 2020. Even though I began learning Spanish as an adult, I'm hopeful that with daily practice I may eventually achieve C1, but that is a goal for another day!
Cheers to all you language learners! I wish you all continued success.
Signing off, MelCohn
Felicitación! Entonces has alcanzado un nivel para comunicarte con la gente de Espanol.
Yeah, it takes time to learn a language properly. Duolingo is a great tool, especially to start or refresh a language to learn the basic vocabulary and the basic grammar rules, but of course it takes more to reach B1 or even B2. You have to fill in the hours and the different tools and of course the communication in a real life situation.
I started learning Spanish as pensioner but made a break after around 500 days when I had finished level A2, other interests got the better of me. But that's not enough to be at least fairly fluent in a language. Now I've restarted to follow your example. B2 is my goal and enough for my purpose.
Adiós y buena suerte camino a C1
