400 Days, Four Languages!

Thanks to all — especially the inimitable, irrepressible MaeeSafaee, who pushed me to post this — for 400 unforgettable days of learning, friendship, collaboration, shared frustration, tolerance, patience, and fun. I agree with one of usagiboy7's recent posts: mastering foreign languages makes us better human beings.

That's amazing! How did you manage your time during those 400 days? Because it seems to take over 400 days to even get to 25 in one language, for me anyways. :) I admire those who are as dedicated as you are. Felicidades, félicitations, complimenti, congratulations!!!

Hey, that's awesome mate! I have up-voted and given a lingot. Out of interest, your profile says that you are from Philadelphia, USA, so I am assuming English is your native language.... so how come you are at level 25 in English? Have you been doing something in reverse? Also, out of your 4 high leveled languages, have you done them all directly from English or laddered any of them? Thanks and keep it up :)

Thank you. English is my native language. On DL, I translate both forward (into English), which is relatively simple, and reverse (from English into other languages) ... which is not. That's why the icons show me in some English level, which should be ignored. I have laddered east Asian languages (not available on DL), but for the languages available on DL, I have always had English as the reference point. Ciao.
