My first month of language learning!
I would like to announce my first 30 day streak! Duolingo is such and amazing language learning website! I have never been as motivated about learning language as I have been this month. Thank you Duo team and community for making this the best month of language learning in my life! Das ist alles, bis später!
It is decent but i spend about 2 hours a day on Duolingo studying and then I watch youtube videos that are teaching German or that are just speaking German. You defiantly see you're learning progress quickly when you practice it every day opposed to missing days here and there.

Isn't it amazing? I spend most of my time studying my German too, from spelling words, repeating sentences, singing along to songs, watching German cartoons, or even trying to communicate with native speakers over the Internet. I had this one really decent conversation with this German girl on YouTube about Der Koenig der Loewen (The Lion King) and it was all in German (with very minor help from Google Translate). I've never felt so confident before!
