I know this is a bit abrupt.
So yesterday I was thinking about it and I've decided to leave the forum. It sounds like another give me attention post but I'm really serios. I was thinking and learning Spanish felt kind of dry I was getting board and I had to force myself to do a single lesson and I wasn't really learning. So after thinking on it for a while I realized, it's probably the forum. I mean, I love it and all the comunaty is great (for the most part) but it's hindering my learning. Every day I would open up duolingo, go stright to the forum read for 20 or 30 minutes rush through a story and come back to the forum. So I decided to leave I'm here to learn and don't get me wrong, stories and the forum are great resources, but used wrong they can just hinder your learning. I may come back one day, but for now I'm leaving. Thank you all for being so nice and making this such a great place, it was great getting to know a lot of you.
Best XP contest ever! Thank you so much to you and Nate and everyone! So many great people I met online through that contest.
Nate, you will be missed, but I want what's best for you. I understand completely the draw of the Forum, and maybe you have already done it all here, and it is time for a break.
Jack, I am glad you are still here to carry on, in between so many languages to study! Bye, Nate, until we may see you again here, please accept our "King of the Forum" award today from all who will miss you.
Do you want to know what's so great in my eyes about these forums, Nate? The opportunities they provide to practice what I have learned by helping other people who post comments in the language I'm studying. They'll ask questions about English as they type out there posts in Spanish, & I finally get to test out my reading & writing skills &; test my brain's ability to try to answer with what I'm trying to convey.
For me, it's both challenging & rewarding. Not to mention totally worth it! Happy studies Nate. See ya around buddy.
This is very true, the forums and league's really do hinder learning. You can post and get some help, but it's rarer than it should be to find someone who will help. I have quit the league's and am also planning g to quit the forums for the most part soon. Apart from facts and a dual language help it is rather a waste of time.
