Letting go of my 467 day streak
Welp, I thought that I pretty much learned everything Duolingo has to offer and I'm going to move onto other ventures in my language learning, therefore I have to let go of my 467 day streak.
It's been a fun year and 102 days, but I've been doing this since highschool and I'll be a second year university student tomorrow.
Thanks Duo and the community for all the support in learning, hope all of you go beyond and reach fluency in all of the languages you want.
See ya and good luck :)
Good luck on your studies. Remember if you ever need to come back you will always be welcome here : )
The Duo community always had that friendly vibe that I felt was kind of creepy and cute at the same time.
Hopefully I'll come back here wanting to try German or Norwegian. :)
The streak has to go either way, it's a bit too nerdy for my taste. :D
A 467 day streak? Wow, you got me motivated. In 468 days, I hope to be posting a conversation like yours.
thank you for coming on this this duolingo thank you so much i can't wait to meet you ok than god bless you text me we will know each other
Wow, congrats on your high streak! Best wishes to you and your future goals elsewhere. :-)
good job, good luck and if you like so much the spanish, we wait you for south america very soon.
greetings from colombia (y)
Greetings from Lithuania!
There are Colombian students here, they are cool people, I might even visit Colombia one day. :)
You still can make one lesson daily and keep the streak :)
One lesson barely made a mark, I always did either two or three per day, but nowadays it felt like a drag, so I thought it would be wise to let it go for a while. Maybe I'll start another language, who knows, but the streak has to go, it looks really nerdy. :)
Ye, I know what you mean :) I still don't have the strength to let it go, though I always have enough languages to feel like I don't do it just for the streak.
How do you learn all those languages at once? One language is already difficult enough for me not to be confused by other languages.
I don't do all the languages simultaneously. Currently I am more into Germanic languages, and they are all interrelated. German, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian - they all have a lot in common, so it doesn't distract, but rather complements.
"that friendly vibe that I felt was kind of creepy and cute at the same time. " jajajajajajaja!!
Good luck on whatever it is that you seek to accomplish in the future. I have to admit though, I'm impressed with your streak!!!!! How did you do it for so long?
A bit of perseverance and just turning it into a daily habit :)
I started with German, but the streak only lasted for a few days at a time, then I switched to Spanish - something I was never exposed to - and then got hooked.
I remember netting around 500 xp in a single day when I started learning. Guess I just didn't find a language that I liked before.
Wow congratulations on such a long streak. I only have 84 days. Doubt if I will make a streak anywhere nears a long as yours. I am bound to miss some days down and then. Good luck on your future endeavors.
Just use a streak freeze every now and then, it shouldn't be a chore as much as just a small game you do every day for 5 or so minutes.
Al ready bought the insurance, just in case. Not for lazyness but already had it almost once due not a standard day.
Next step... study abroad! :) I studied abroad in Costa Rica and ended up staying for an extra year and a half. Haha! Go have a fun immersion experience if you can!
Unfortunately, I'll probably stay in Europe for a while, I've already been to pretty much every major nation by the age of 16, so at the moment I'm just residing and studying in my native Lithuania for the time being.
Still, would be fun to study in Spain, I got friends there. :)
good job and I hope you do well with your future endeavors. Hasta Luego!
Good luck with your studies! but remember,you can always come back to learn Klingon :p Live long and prosper!
i had 25 but now i have 0... oh well ill earn them back within a few days...
Awh, that's really generous, even for a somewhat arbitrary and fictional currency like lingots :P
You'll get there with enough determination, don't worry ;)
Man I want a streak like that!!! How long does it take to finish the tree, and do you actually become fluent by the end (if you do revision etc.)?
Took me around 70 - 80 days to finish the tree, the rest was just keeping it in the gold. (Although I managed to make it completely gold only once or twice!)
Mind you, there were some gaps where I switched to other languages and kept the same streak, but they never lasted for more than a week or so.
When I came back the lessons felt fresh again and I continued on.
Congratulations and good luck! I would like to suggest to you and to others in my Duolingo community not to totally forsake it, but to use it as a base to leap to even more understanding of the language you are/were learning just for fun. As for example, I am now analyzing the uses of "Se", very interesting to see how much it has been written on this subject, the variety of 'Se' uses and the variety of categorizing the "Se" uses. Hence for me it makes it more fun when I am doing Duolingo to be able to categorize, understand and use "Se" in the right way. this is of course if you have time. ¡Buena suerte, Díos te bendiga!
Yehp. I don't actually feel any regret though, guess it was bound to happen sooner or later and just ending it on a day like September 1st would be pretty reasonable.
