Hurray!!! I'm 365 days!
Tomorrow will take care of the the leap year! I am sooo psyched....if I can duo 365 days, what ELSE can I do for 365 days.....hmmmm
Congrats!!! It blows my mind how some people get their streaks so high. Whenever I start, something happens that makes it nearly impossible to be on Duolingo. Now shoot for another year?
Congratulations on your first year. I know it feels great. I remember my 365 day streak and I asked the same question if I can do this for 1 year, I wonder if I can get 2 years. I'm 33 days away. you can do it as well. GO FOR 730.
It's tough for the first 90 days then the habit is formed and then after a year it becomes an addiction, then you're hooked. I got my 8 year old granddaughter started and once she hit a 10 day streak she was hooked. She's on a 27 day streak. You can do it. As the say it one day at a time.
Get to 1095 and you will be at 3 years! Hope you make it that far. Lol I only have a 2 day streak. Only 1093 days left.
Congratulations for this achievement! I'm very close... :O
How do you learn so many languages? My mother says that it would confuse me and it would be too much.
Congratulations, a whole year using Duolingo everyday. But don't forget that it is just a number the important thing here is to learn as much as you can. Well done.
Thank you. I try to speak with people whenever possible. Even though it can be nerve racking :)
Actually it doesn't require much time, just some minutes per day. I'd like to spend more time on Duolingo but currently I don't have enough time....
Congratulations! It's such an accomplishment! It's so much effort to do something on a daily basis, let alone learn 3 languages :) Fabulous Fabuous! Here's a lingot for ya!
WOW that is awesome! Why not learn a new language? -Don't give up on duo jsut ebcause you did it for a year, you'll lose it
I won't. Now I talk to people who speak the languages I'm learning (sometimes, I'm nervous but I do it anyway) :)
Congrats! A journey of a thousand miles begin with one step. You will do great!!
Thank you so much everyone!! So much love! You really help to make this feel even better! If I were to write about my year I would say something like the following: There were times I was too tired but I duoed anyway. There were times I felt like a chicken without a head, just too much going on, but I duoed anyway. There were times I just was not in the mood, but I duoed anyway. So reaching this milestone, I say, gracias!, grazie!, merci! queen wave :)
Yay! Congratulations :) I have a one year goal as well.... but first, I have to hit the 100 day milestone. Keep it up!!
After a year, are you able to use the language fluently? I really would love to know your experience in this. How much did you get to spend every day? were you working on other documents/sites...etc other than duolingo to learn the language? Thanks in advance and congratulations :)
Thank you. I do not feel that I am fluent but I can hold a conversation. I try to speak with people for practice anytime I get a chance. This I feel is most important. I duo before going to bed. I also use rosette stone for reading purpose and pimsleur for listening. I try to listen to music in the language I'm learning. If I have to write down anything, I do it the language i'm learning. I try to integrate it into my life. I read simple children's stories as well which helps. For sure, Duolingo has helped my reading skills a lot and help my vocabulary grow. However, you must find a way to listen and understand the language in as natural a setting as possible. One cool thing I try to do is I choose a day out of the week that I only speak that language on that day. I do not care if my sentences are not perfect, I try to be understood. My vocabulary will grow. My days for speaking only the language of choice are Mondays, and Fridays. I also study Mandarin Chinese, but duo does not offer that now. Hope this helps. :)
Congrats my friend i too am looking forward to my year/years of duo learning multiple languages
Congratulations! I like your thinking... if I can do this for a year, what else can I accomplish? In comment to using the language fluently after Duo'ing for a year, I feel I can read and write the language quite well, but speaking... I become nervous and it is slow going but certainly better than where I was 301 days ago! ;) Keep on keepin' on folks!
Thank you! I decided not to be afraid of making mistakes and to speak to anyone who will let me in order to practice. I just try to be understood. It is the only way you will be able to grow your vocabulary and you confidence. :)
Thank you. Let it become a habit. Pick a time of day that works for you and do it first before ANYTHING else. :)
Congratulations, Fabuous!! That is awesome! !Felicidades, Fabuous! !Esto es asombroso!
I have a 207-day streak and am about to go out of town where I will not have daily access to a computer. Is it possible to do Duolingo on my iPhone using data? I cannot access wifi either. I am not very tech savvy but I am learning!
If you still have enough Lingots, but the Streak Freeze and apply. One is good for a day. 10 Lingots for 1 day i believe.
Streak Freeze allows your streak to remain in place for one full day of inactivity.
Thanks mje2! You can definitely duo on your phone. I have an android and I do use it sometimes. You have come a long way. Congratulations on 207 streak! I would hate to see you lose that. Use the freeze as much as you can. Do you have enough lingots?
I did get the Duolingo app onto my phone and tried it out today. It worked very well and now I won't have to be concerned about losing my long streak! Thank you, Fabuous, Jaleesj, and iWayne1 for your encouragement!
Congratulations! That's very encouraging for a beginner like me. I am on my 10th day. Thank you for sharing your accomplishment and your success tips.
it is pretty cool that trying to keep the streak makes you practice even when you really don't feel like it that day! Congrats!
Hello guys, Hope everyone is doing great. Anyone know how I can let my blinged out owl be my avatar?
You know what you should do for 365 days? ...
You should read 1 poem every single day for 365 days!!
What breaks my heart is when someone calls people a name just for having an opinion.
Sorry, that's fair enough, I just get really worked up about haters. Not enemies?
I tried doing it. I got to a 13 day streak, but then I slept over at my dads over the whole weekend and I lost all of my credit. It's kinda hard to keep you day streak if you are gone for the whole weekend...each weekend. Plus, my parents won't get me a phone. I have to buy my own phone and pay for it monthly. So I can't go on duolingo on a phone. And for some reason he does have a computer either.
So sorry...sounds like you 1. need a lot of lingots and 2. someone to buy another freeze once one is use up to buy time. Sounds a lot.
