How is everyone doing ?

Still climbing the trees ?

I hope that you are having fun, and learning more and more !

I've switched over to corresponding with my Norwegian Cousins, reading articles on places I have been to,

and planning a trip over this year if I can swing it. 

A week wandering around Oslo (which is now car free..yeap, no cars in the city center);

will be a hoot. 

Let me know how all of you are doing !

Jay

German, 19 day streak, just passed the second checkpoint.

 

I've been doing the strengthening exercises regularly, since spaced repetition is known to be an effective way to learn things permanently. As I continue along, I remember more, though I've forgotten a dismaying percentage of my noun genders.

Day 121, no idea what half the verbs they're throwing at me mean. I think that my cheating (hovering over words) deprived me of a lot of vocab for many of the sessions.

Day 96, 11 sessions from my third check point.  Still doing the 2 reviews / 1 new session / 2 reviews method.  Somehow this crazy program thinks I'm at 50% proficiency?  I to use the hover method.  Still need to check before I hit enter for typos.  Glad to hear we are all cruising along.  Next up for me is Past tense.  Objective pronouns are still a pain though I do better understand how they used now.  They are just going to require more practice.

The game player in me is incredibly frustrated at the lack of things to spend these lingots on.

 

Day 120 though!

Indeed. I'm starting to notice that as well

This week was a big competition for my science team at school. The students did well, but I missed two days of Duolingo and lost my 100+ day streak :(

 

Oh well, back to day one...

The thing that is killing me most about this, is that I thought I only missed Saturday due to getting home after midnight from a long commute after our competition. I missed the fact that I skipped Wednesday also due to a Geek and Sundry game night at the FLGS. I have plenty of lingots that could have paid for the streak freeze power...I just didn't realize I had used it Wednesday.

I wish the reminder function of the app was more useful.  It sends me a notice every night whether I have done the work already or not.  Would be more useful if it only sent it when you hadn't done the lessons for the day.

Sounds like a really good topic to bring up in the discussions forum on Duolingo.  I bet you might have some individuals that would really

jump on your suggestions.  I finally have stopped doing the refresher's due to the constant nagging I was getting.  I don't want to un-subscribe, so I do a refresher or four, and then avoid going for the streak !  With all the Norwegian I personally do, I have a rough time dealing with keeping the vocab fully refreshed.  The more I do, the more it demands.. thanks, but no thanks.  I'm now doing other things I have promised folks I will do.  :rock::upside:

Well I made it to day 100 today.  I am currently on past tense and it is a struggle as is objective pronouns.  I know it is a matter of practice and memory, but I look at the way some of the new sentences are structured and I have to reprogram the way I think.  My old code being stubborn at the moment to that.  Hope all you others are moving along well.

No One is posting so I guess that everyone has added on another seven days to their streaks !

I continue on reading the newspapers, and refreshing a segment when I feel like it.

Strange to be NOT using my notes.

Have to watch some of my spelling, they are tossing a few tricky words at me.

When I get them right I smile, when I screw up I go beserk...ROFL.

Keep it fun, and I hope you have found someone to chat with !
