So things have been going pretty smoothly with my #learningproject as far as Duolingo is concerned. I have a 24-day streak going and that is almost as long as the one I had going prior to reading week. So that’s the positive coming out of this post. Unfortneylt I have been having trouble setting up a meeting with someone to practice my French. This is something that I really want to do. It will serve as a sort of culminating project for me. My summative assessment if you will. But, more on that later.
Late last week Duolingo did a big update to its programming and as a result, many of the lessons were changed. This meant that I had to go back and redo a number of lessons that I had already completed. I reached out on Twitter, but to no avail. My fluency also dropped down as a result of the change. I have never been too sure of the accuracy, but it’s never fun to see your supposed progress drop down. That’s all for Duolingo for now.
I have been reaching out to a number of different people on a website called Langue Exchanges this is where you can set up a meeting with someone and help each other learn a new language. I was a little worried about meeting someone new online, but I was able to move past that. I have been following the recommendations for setting up a good profile. Hopefully, I can set up a meeting sometime soon.
