  1. Has anyone here finished a language on Duolingo? How long did it take you? I just finished Italian but I tested out of about half of it. It still took me around a year to get to the end (though admittedly I go through cycles of lots of Duolingo and then nothing for weeks). Do you feel you learned a lot? I feel like I understand a lot more but my speaking has not improved lots, yet. I will keep practicing until everything is gold  :grin:

  2. The ideal would be to split it into two sentences as they are separate clauses and form a list.

    "First, talk to Mr. Johnson. Then, see the supervisor for the next meeting."

    Another option would be to add an "and" to separate the clauses. This would remove the first comma as there is no list being formed, and add one after "Johnson". The "and" is not necessary but improves the rhythm of the sentence. However, stylistically this is less preferable than the first option (for written English anyway).

    "First talk to Mr. Johnson, and then see the supervisor for the next meeting."

  3. Hello! I'm a Swiss-Italian (from the lovely canton of Ticino) who was raised in California but has recently relocated to Graubünden, Switzerland, after a brief stint of living in Iceland. I speak Italian and English at home, though my Italian could use some practice when it comes to more complicated grammar. I've picked up bits and pieces of many European languages and would really like to reach proficiency in them before expanding into more diverse languages. So, I am currently trying to work on my rudimental German, French, and Swedish! Luckily Duolingo offers all of these (or will be, starting tomorrow :grin: ). I would love to communicate with some native speakers of these languages, if anyone would like to practice with me!

    Nice to meet you all!
