10000 xp :)
Almost took me 5 months to reach here but I finally made it.
Don't cry, it's ok! I used to cry too, believe it or not, because people had millions (compared to me) of xps.
And thank you J.Appleseed21!
BTW I really like your username and your pic ;)
I don't know if they do it 24-hours nonstop. But, at the end of the day, I see 20,000xp.... o.o
15500 in two months, but this score should be placed in context: I speak perfect Spanish and French and most of my closest friends are Italian; when they speak with me it is in English and French, but when they speak together, they do so in Italian assuming I can understand the gist of their conversations. I also have many years of language teaching experience and conceived a complete English method for Kodak, which obeys the same principles as those of Duolingo. What I was lacking was grammar and more vocabulary. So I believe that Kingo deserves to be congratulated more than I do if he started from nothing. In any event, for me, the key to advancing quickly is to complete each skill in the correct order, completely (all five levels), and to work every day, if possible. I am also in the habit of spending about half an hour a day carrying on mental conversations with myself in Italian while going about my daily routine, in order to apply what I have learned while identifying vocabulary and grammar that I need.
