It's been quite a journey and honestly, I didn't expect to be able to achieve so many things during this time =)

I don't want to make a long post, only put in perspective that I've circled the sun studying here once already hehe. I joined the site some time before this streak but I consider my day #1 the day I decided to take this game seriously.

Non of this would be true without all of you, we create the community that gives ourselves the motivation needed to push a little bit further every day and what you learn cannot be taken away, so learning will always be worth it.

Happy birthday to me! =)

Wait, is this an unoversary or a duoversary?

Regardless, you've been such a wonderful influence on Duolingo, always helping and working hard. I'm glad to be moderators with you and in general being in the same community with you. Felicidades, Emanuel! :D

Eey91 has a NAME?! o.o

I always think of him as Eeyore. From Winnie-the-Pooh.

You became B2 in 6 languages in 1 year. Impressive. I highly respect you, so I will give you two lingots. Just think what you can do in five years. Wow! You could easily become an interpreter!

I actually knew English already, but it has improved enormously as well. I'm just planning to learn as much as I can for as long as I can =)

Thanks for the lingots!

Wilkommen, but I believe you are C1/C2 in Spanish, Portuguese and French as you are level 20+

In fact, I only did SP and EN courses to have the badge =P. Spanish is my native language and I've been around English for over 10 years. Those two are obviously the languages I feel the most confident with, but French and Portuguese are not strange in any way. C2 for me is almost like a native lvl, but either way those measurements are very subjective in my opinion.

Well, I've only known you for a couple days, but I still hope you have a green owl shaped cake and an awesome Duoversary!

I'd like to know how you manage to not let your moderating and Incubator-contributing get in the way of your streak. I've wanted to "take it seriously" as well for a while, but I always end up doing "work" and no learning. Maybe you have some secret recipe?

And all the best for your second year, the German course is waiting for you ;-)

Thank you!

I definitely think I have an advantage in this aspect, when I joined the incubator my course was already out of beta so I don't have the rush to finish the translations so the course could be graduated.

I mostly answer questions in the forum since I've been moderator for some months now and I'm already subscribed to a lot of sentence discussions, so I do that first. Right now I'm revising for missing translations in the incubator, but that is not something I do every single day.

About the streak well, sometimes I can't even study so what I do is saving the day doing one lesson, or at least the minimum points, that's something many people do to, and I don't consider it cheathing because I still visit the forums every day =P. In general I just try to balance everything my first priority being answering questions in the sentence discussion.

It took me a while to "get serious" with Duolingo as well. I had an account long before my streak but I only count my streak time as the "real" time I've been on here. You've done a lot with your year! Plus moderating. ¡Enhorabuena!

Parabéns!

I've said on other occasions that you inspire others around the community to keep pushing themselves just by looking at your streak and the effort you put into studying alone, not to mention the time you take to help people out in the forums.

PS: Desejo-te boa sorte para atingires o nível 25 em Português rapidamente :)

Eu ainda tenho um longo caminho com a língua e também estou tentando atingir o nível somente fazendo as lições, mas eu sei que falta pouco ^^.
