Add me as a friend
Im new and have no friends here ):
Hi Lia, welcome! Assuming you're serious (and not trolling like some of the recent goofballs!), please consider inviting some of your real friends to join you here on DuoLingo so you can compete with and encourage each other here on the website and learn and practice together at home. There's a place where you can send an e-mail invite on your home page. Then, if your friends find it as fun and as much a learning experience as many of us do, they'll thank you for the invitation!
A couple of suggestions for you: In addition to those you've added as friends, you have several followers now. You might want to click on them and press the "+ Add friend" icon under their name so you'll be connected and able to follow them in your stream, too. Also, try to practice your German regularly at your pace, whether that's one or two lessons (or more) per day or a few lessons per week. You'll be making progress before you know it. Good luck!
