THANK YOU DUOLINGO!!

Hello Duolingoers! I decided to start this discussion to express my gratitude towards Duolingo and the team that made the Turkish course happen! I'm Greek and, as a geographical neighbor of Turkey's, I've always found myself interested in its culture,history but -above all!- language, which is music to my ears! Even though I'm a busy man and I hardly ever find the time to study my Italian (I'm taking the CELI3 certification exam this summer and I DO have to consider it my priority when it comes to leisure...), I will try to at least complete a lesson of Turkish every other day in order to support it, especially given that it's still in the beta phase. I wish this course nothing but good luck and ... permanence! Panos il greco :-P

Update!! What a difficult language youĂ ve got guys!!!!! B ut it's a challenge that I've accepted! So far it seems very poetical to me, especially because of its syntax. I don't know if that's the case with native speakers, but to a foreigner it can sound pretty poetical! Just a question... Aren't there recording exercises?
