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 :)

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

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.

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.

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.

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. :)

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!
