Duolingo 1000

Duolingo 1000.

I have just completed 1000 consecutive days learning languages on Duolingo. Hooray!

It’s amazing how it all adds up when you spend a few minutes a day on a task and make it a habit.

So far I have completed the language trees in French, Italian, Spanish and German. I’ve recently started Portuguese, Latin and Navajo, for fun!

Not that I can speak any of these properly, but I do understand a lot more than I did, especially in languages I had never learnt before, obviously.

Now, I have the even harder task of making myself miss a day to re-set the counter back to zero.

Why?

Well, I don’t want to feel that I have to study each day. I do it for fun after all. And to keep the little grey cells going!

Also, despite all this learning, I still only speak two languages fluently: English and Dog!

      haha Actually I do some Arabic exercises now and then, but as you say, it is very hard – to read the script and to try to pronounce it! πŸ˜€

    Did you know that I speak cursive? I speak it best when I drop something that breaks into a thousand pieces, or when I hit my finger (instead of a nail) with a hammer.

    Congrats… way to go! I’m good in the cat language but unfortunately, I’m not good in speaking dog… πŸ˜‰

    I speak dog to, but apparently not well since words like “lay down” or “sit” or ” bath” are totally ignored. Maybe I am speaking a different dialect. And congratulations on your achievement. Quite an accomplishment.

      hahaha Yeah, it’s all very well to speak Dog – but the Dog has to want to listen! πŸ˜€
      And thank you very much. πŸ˜€

    I’m in agreement with everyone…dog is the most important and universally understood language!

    Congratulations on such an ambitious achievement. Well done!

    As long as you are fluent in the most important language, spoken all over the world: Dog. It does have many dialects but it is a universal language.

      Thank you πŸ˜€
      Mandarin etc are very hard as they have a totally different alphabet etc. And I’m basically lazy! πŸ˜€
