800 Days with Duolingo

27th November 2013 changed my way to learn French :-) That's the day I started with Duolingo. First Englisch-French, now German-French, because German is my mother tongue. First I finished the French tree "quick and dirty". Now I'm trying to have a golden tree. Now I am on the last 20 per cent or so... In spite of missing a lot of vocabulary, I understand quiet a lot of French, at least written French. But I keep going to be perfect ;-)

That takes a lot of commitment! Have you considered joining the Streak Hall of Fame? You definitely qualify!

Awesome! I think Clint usually updates it on the weekend, but I'm not sure if he does it on Saturdays or Sundays.

Well done, Samy. I vaguely remember I first started at the same time as you, but somehow I lost my streak in the middle, now I'm determined to keep it going :-)

Congrats. How many XP is the French tree? Around 20K ? I hope to do around 5K XP French points some day

15361 XP

Thanks but 15361 = 1536 x 10 + 1. I thought that all the sessions have XP points which are multiples of 10. So why 1 in the end? Or maybe are there some sessions with an odd number of XP points? I'm a newbie here, so bear with my silly question. Thx.

Usually lessons give you 10 XP, but sometimes they don't if you make a lot of mistakes. Also you gain XP in various other ways like translating documents in the Immersion section.

There are 364 lessons in the French tree.

About a year ago, Duolingo used a system in which you would have three hearts at the beginning of a lesson, and would lose one for each wrong answer you've given. When you finish the lesson you could get 10 + x (x = the number of hearts you have left) XP. So it was possible to obtain 10-13 XP for each lesson. :D

Merci pour l'information !!

De rien ! :D

I'm glad that they did away with the hearts. I would occasionally get really frustrated with the whole thing, which probably contributed to me binning the whole Duolingo thing for around seven months

Also the Timed Practice feature can give anywhere from 1 to 20 points each time.

All the trees (at least all the twenty-something trees I've seen so far) have between 200 and 500 lessons, and given that 1 lesson = 10 XP you have that a complete tree entails between 2000 and 5000 XP.

Of course most people need many more XP to finish a tree, because of the amount of review lessons needed to consolidate in your brain the new vocabulary.
