I don't know if I can do this:

I've been trying to learn Italian, but I don't think I'll be able to speak it fluently; I just can't get all the arm-flailing and yelling correct!

September 5, 2014

Mennjai Check out this awesome nytimes video on gestures :) http://www.nytimes.com/video/world/europe/100000002309793/the-italian-gesture-.html

September 5, 2014

Now I know why I can't stop using hand gestures :) Thanks for sharing!

Alright, kristinemc, thanks to that video, I think I'll be able to give it another shot... :)

Really interesting video, thanks.

genius reply Jack. It gave me a real laugh. Just heard that I go into Hospital 10th September, for about a month. They have WiFi - so I'll take the laptop in, and hope for the best :)

A month doesn't sound nice. All the best wishes to you and your health! :)

September 5, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/maddyis7

Ori_ka I replied to say thanks, but the post seems to have disappeared. So Thanks :) I'll be fine.

September 5, 2014

Good luck maddyis7 - Duolingo/learning a language can be very comforting! Best wishes.

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/maddyis7

Kristin, I've set myself a hopefully attainable target.... That in one month, I might be able to finish my tree...or get close to it. Every cloud has a silver lining. This could be a great opportunity for DL progress, if I choose it, and make it happen :)

September 5, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kristinemc

Keep us posted, please!

If the Wi-Fi works....so will I. lol. You can't keep me off the Discussion Pages for long. I adore our community :)

When they wake you up to give you a sleeping pill, you can sneak in a couple of midnight refreshers, too!

September 6, 2014

I don't think I'll keep calm, but I will learn languages. ;) Having friends over...we'll do a DuoContest. ;)

September 5, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ALoUSyUseRnaME

Very important indeed!

September 5, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/makiminami

Exactly what I was going to say! Going to finish my French tree (currently at Abstract Objects 2, Verb Infinitive 3, and Communications), catch up on my Spanish (Adverbs and Verb Present 2?), and do some work on Danish (still at Basics 2 and Phrases, I'm way far behind).

September 5, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LilPeterPan

I have to repeat 13 skills over and over again until they are stuck in my head. :)

What's going on this weekend?

September 5, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GrandApple

Learning languages, that's for sure. And back to school.

September 5, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LilPeterPan

You guys go back to school?! I'm in Week 9, Term 3. I feel sorry for you.

September 5, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Fs_yankees

So you never get a summer vacation? :0

September 6, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LilPeterPan

Thats because it's Fall/Autumn for you, lol

September 6, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Fs_yankees

Yes, don't remind me :(

September 6, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LilPeterPan

Spring vacation is like a couple weeks away! And summer vacation is in December.

September 6, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Fs_yankees

Oh, I see! You're lucky it's starting to warm up over there, it's starting to cool down over here. It was 90F today, freezing.

September 6, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GrandApple

3 weeks a term? How many terms are there in a school year? I'm on the northern hemisphere so it might be different. Yes, I just had my Summer vacation. I think most countries outside the USA get more vacation time.

September 6, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LilPeterPan

Nonono, like 9-11 weeks a term. And there are 4 terms a year.

September 6, 2014
