Excellent--what's amazing to me is that once I began to concentrate on the work rather than the days, time began to FLY:--))

I thought bad weather would help--it's easier to say indoors and study.

Bad weather isn't the problem. I live in the "country" and often the internet connection + bad weather = no service...

Bastante bien, gracias. De hecho, yo tenía una experiencia extraña hace dos semanas. Me había concentrado tanto en español, que un día mientras veía la televisión en inglés, empecé a traducir automáticamente en español. ¡Los artículos de Duolingo en la inmersión son realmente muy útiles también!

Muchas gracias. Thanks to you, I started Portuguese, Italian and Somalian on Memrise. I'm taking a little breather to concentrate on French/Spanish grammar, and maybe start working towards an "English as a Second Language" certificate online. However, I'm also curious to try Italian and Portuguese on Duolingo. You and the Duolingo community really motivate me to keep going. My family and friends think that I am "losing it"...

Glad to hear I helped with motivation. You're welcome. :)

My family also calls me "interesting". They didn't mind when I was learning Spanish, but they are silently going "Okay..." about Mandarin Chinese...they also tell me that French is hard, and not to bother with it. I haven't told them about Danish, Irish, and Dutch, or my desire to learn about five others. ;)

4 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/cjholloway

It is "interesting" to me that my FRENCH is better than my Spanish. I started French ~4 months AFTER starting Spanish. I figured that my French translation tier would SLOWLY catch up to Spanish, right!

My ego is bruised and I'm working hard to get my Spanish BACK in front of French, but for some odd reason, French is more "natural" to me...

I read that an American high school student TAUGHT HIMSELF 13 languages to help many of his peers who could not speak English and no one else would step in.

So, I'm challenging myself to follow the excellent example that you and all the other Duolinguists who are doing so well taking multilingualism to "another level" are setting for the rest of us. ;--))

I know what you mean. I started French first on here, but the further I got, the slower my retainment of French words, while Spanish started off with a bang and never stopped. Spanish feels natural for me, now I just need the words that I have in English. :)

Wow, incredible. 13 languages. Interesting that the teachers/school had nothing to do with it, but kudos to the student.

I have kept a streak freeze in place ever since I lost my streak. The ironic part was: the day before I lost my streak I had intended to put on a freeze since the number was getting big, and the very next day, not only do I forget that, I forgot to practice... Oh the humanity...

Congrats to you...my streak is 8 days after missing a day on a 7 streak...I just learned of duolingo and am finding it as a great refresher, and for me filling in a lot of gaps...MY QUESTION for you and others that stick with it is How fluent are you becoming? I am self taught for 4 years (Michel Thomas,Pimsleur and Fluenz) I feel I can recognize and understand written word, but panic when trying to put a sentence together in live conversation...any comments welcome even harsh ones...AGAIN big props to you for sticking with it, is this game addicting?
