I did two skills of Russian on Duolingo - forty skills left. :-) If I do two skills a day, I can finish the course in twenty days. Or I could try to finish in exactly thirty days (doing two skills each day for ten days and one skill each day for twenty days). Hm...

The one thing I've always admired about the members of Duran Duran is their utmost respect for other musicians and artists.

It's about time! :-)
 
Awesome. Though the title should say "probe" since it's not going to be manned.

I reached Level 2 Vietnamese! https://www.duolingo.com

The Vietnamese course is now available on Duolingo.

I'm not sure how much Vietnamese I'm going to learn, but I'm sort of interested in comparing some of the various non-Indo-European languages that are spoken in East Asia and Southeast Asia.

I reached Level 10 Russian!

I still have a long way to go though. Since Russian is significantly harder than Spanish, Italian, French, and Dutch (the language trees I've already completed on Duolingo), I've been doing quite a bit of the "strengthening" for it (at least three a day). While I was able to finish the trees for the other languages (I finished two trees each for Spanish, Italian, and French - there is only one tree for Dutch) somewhere between level 11 and level 13 (doing little to no strengthening), I think I will be aiming to finish the Russian tree by level 20.

(By the way, Italian is fairly easy to learn once you already know Spanish and French. ^_^)
