♥♥ 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!"
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)
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.
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!
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..
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
Kathy that´s amazing! It must feel so nice to have reached our goal.. Congrats!
