Celebrating my 6th year with Duolingo!

Good morning, everyone.

I am a little late to this (few days), but I just wanted to say some words about Duolingo throughout my years here. Also, maybe inspire some of the new comers here.

I remember my first year on the website. We still had wikipedia editing pages, you could comment and discuss on profiles and so forth, etc. We also had very few languages you could learn; the general main languages of the world. I believe Italian or Portuguese was due to release soon too, honestly its been a little too long to remember.

Since I have an understanding for some other languages, over the years I posted numerous discussions for vocabulary and grammar structure in languages like Sicilian and Chechen. I have recently been inactive due to my military career, but I plan on attempting to bring back more lessons.

For Duolingo new comers, I want you to learn one languages solely for a while. You'll see language hunters (For a better term, people who just want all gold trees), and I will tell you this. They might or might not learn languages fast, but its important to embrace one language for a while, and to grasp the language so that you'll know what that language is about. You'll find yourself starting a course in a language, and may not find it interesting. That's fine, we all have to learn what languages are best for us to enjoy to learn. Just make sure you aren't making it a pattern of lv 1 on every course, otherwise you won't be grasping anything.

Thank you, Duolingo. Thank you for 6 years of learning!
