♥♥ 1000 DAY STREAK ♥♥
Yippee! I am so excited that I reached my goal. I've worked very hard to accomplish this goal. I am retired and have some health issues but I didn't give up. I am so thankful for Duolingo opening up a whole new world for me. I've learned so much these past three years. My community has a large number of Hispanics so I am able to practice. There are several Mexican restaurants that I enjoy. Great food and fellowship!
Thanks to the Duolingo Team. Keep up the good work.
♥ Just don't anyone say, "Ahhh...Streaks aren't important...It's the language that matters...." etc. Streaks are an incredible milestone, a personal victory and show true dedication. That being said, "CONGRATULATIONS! YOU ARE TOTALLY AWESOME!"
hi i am thuy tien.who folow me.and i am vietnamese.Because I wanted to learn Chinese, I had to learn Chinese from English because there was no Chinese for Vietnamese.
keep working on your English. and grammar. you are almost there and I really want to learn Chinese too! I don't know why I have just always loved Asia.
I think that streak are not important, but it's for me alone, I wouldn't say it's not a good goal or milestone.
Being retired, and having health problems, and being able to set useful goals is very inspiring. All is in the goal.
Also, streaks are great for figuring out just how long you've been working on this thing. I hit a wee 60 days today, and while it's no big milestone, it made me think, "I've been working on Spanish for two months!" And that sort of made me happy. I thought it was much less than that, until I realized that within these 60 days, I've watched a bunch of Spanish-language movies, practice in the car, listened to podcasts & been to a couple in-person exchanges. While I don't know much, Duo was what got me started on all of these things. I can't imagine what 1000 days would be like, but apparently there is a "club" you can join (I see it up in the related links)
I am not normally impressed with streaks, but taking care of a streak for one thousand days is quite a feat. Well done!
That is wonderful!
For a person in your situation, it must be great to have language learning as a focus, plus you already have people with whom to practise the newly acquired language . Well done!
As you know, there are different types of Spanish; the Mexicans have a slightly different pronunciation from Castile (Spain) and some different words, as you can further tell through a good dictionary.
¡Felicidades! Sigue aprendiendo y aprenderas la bella lengua que has comenzado a aprender ¡no te rindas!
Buen trabajo Katy, "Quien persevera alcanza", espero disfrutes enormemente el español, en muy interesante cuando se habla ya que se pueden expresar cosas de diferentes maneras. En lo personal me gustan los idiomas extranjeros, los estudio y estoy aprendiendo, aun asi, aprendo cada día mas de mi lengua materna: el español. Congratulations!
Well done Kathy, you have worked very well keeping your streak and it must have paid off. Now with the 3 and a half years you put into this I think you deserve the Mexican food. Congrats.
Wow that’s really amazing what an accomplishment. So are you fluent in your target language now?
Hola! Good job! Duolingo really open a new world to me too！like languages! I wish to be that persistant everyday like you and enjoy the learning too!
I am also retired and agree with every word you wrote. Unfortunately, I can never reach a long number of streak because every time I go traveling abroad I have hard time to keep maintainig it, and so, I alwas start over when I come back. When at home, I don't miss even a day without practecing..
Great job! I reached twenty today, and even that was hard for me. I am amazed that you managed 1000! Amazing dedication.
My goal is the same. Science is a valuable experience.
I am recently retired also and that inspires me. I am going to follow you.
That's amazing!!! Congratulations!!! I hope to follow in your footsteps. Only 996 days to go. :)
Suuuper :) It is not simple. I don't remember if I've ever achieved more than 200 without a break. What's next? 1095 days ... it's probably three full years? but 1 thousand sounds better and I associate 1001 even better;) Like - Tales from the Thousand and One Nights... Because for me Duolingo is evenings and nights Congratulations!
Hi Kathy, you are a power woman! Well done. Three years in a row!! I am also retired and am enjoying Duolingo just as much as you do. I started with Spanish, but I noticed that the more I practiced the more I wanted to learn. So now I am also learning Portuguese. I am really addicted to Duolingo and have advised it to many of my friends. Good luck with your study, Marlies
Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! estoy muy feliz por tu(accent) (I'm very happy for you)
Kathy that´s amazing! It must feel so nice to have reached our goal.. Congrats!
Massive congratulations on such an impressive milestone! One day I'll make it to your level :') Best of luck for the future and happy learning! x
Que impresionante que lograras todos esos días de buena racha, ¡muchas felicidades!
Congrats for you! I was in a 547 streak when I miss one day and I totally lose my determination. :( Now, I don't care for streaks anymore.
