An important reminder for this weekend :)
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!
Mennjai Check out this awesome nytimes video on gestures :) http://www.nytimes.com/video/world/europe/100000002309793/the-italian-gesture-.html
Alright, kristinemc, thanks to that video, I think I'll be able to give it another shot... :)
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 :)
Ori_ka I replied to say thanks, but the post seems to have disappeared. So Thanks :) I'll be fine.
Good luck maddyis7 - Duolingo/learning a language can be very comforting! Best wishes.
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 :)
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!
we will :) we have a big brainstorming meeting on Sunday. Soon we will be working a lot in the incubator (it doesn't mean we have not been working so far, but we were working outside the incubator, discussing what to teach where etc)

Now I've just got to post this one:
And a special one for the Russian-speaking community on Duolingo:
I don't think I'll keep calm, but I will learn languages. ;) Having friends over...we'll do a DuoContest. ;)
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).
I have to repeat 13 skills over and over again until they are stuck in my head. :)
I can't figure out how to post a picture .-. ugh I must be stupid...
This made my day after realizing my streak went down to zero): At least I got to reach 100 days, I lost it at 102. Oh well, I'm not giving up!
You guys go back to school?! I'm in Week 9, Term 3. I feel sorry for you.
Spring vacation is like a couple weeks away! And summer vacation is in December.
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.
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.
