My first month on Duolingo
My first month on Duolingo:
Hola amigos! So, this morning I woke up, and logged on to Duolingo, and after I had extended my streak today, looked and said to myself, "has it been a month already?" At first, I had not planned to create a month post, but when I saw that so many other people had done, I decided to create one. I also would like to give special recognition to a few people. In a month, the Spanish skills that I knew previously have increased by a huge amount, thanks to the amazing Duolingo learning system. Thanks to my amazing friends, who were willing to put up with my messy translations and correct them, I have become much better at translations. I have reached translation tier 26 in Spanish, 9 in French, 7 in Italian, 6 in Portuguese, 5 in German, and 5 in English (for Spanish speakers). Now, I am now looked to as an able translator myself. So thank you, Duolingo, both for the friends, and the language learning experience, and I look forward to doing even more with you in the following months! Below is the list of
a few of my amazing friends. But this is only a fraction of the wonderful people on Duolingo!
You've come so far in just one month, and I know your drive and motivation will bring you even further. It's been a joy seeing you grow and improve! :)
Make sure you keep pushing yourself forward; favouring complex sentences and new learning over easy points. The gamification here is a double-edge sword, which provides motivation, but at the same time shifts the focus towards arbitrary goals like points and levels. I know what you really want is to learn and improve, as you've proved this to me in the way you take advice, so keep your course steady towards that end.
