How many XP are you doing per day?
Hi everybody, I have been for 2 weeks now on Duolingo and I am curious, how many XP are you approximately doing in one day? I have started with Spanish and set up 50XP, which is supposed to be "insane" (more is not possible). But then I added other languages and I think 50XP for 6 languages is not enough, I am doing now cca 600XP a day. Am I really crazy??? :-D :-D :-D BTW. looking for some new crazy friends as well :-)
I just did the math - I've been on Duolingo for 125 days and a total of 24,755 XP -- that averages out to about 198 XP a day. My daily "goal" in my profile is only 10 - I think for me a higher goal would be counterproductive. (it would make the skill sets seem like a chore instead of a fun thing to do).
Probably depends on how much free time you have. I usually do more on weekends than weekdays.
I do at most like 500 XP a day, but some days I only do about 40-50. Just depends :) But nah you aren't that crazy haha
Ebenfalls! Ich sehe, dass Sie auch Deutsch lernen, so entschied ich mich zu Ihnen auf Deutsch antworten. Ich werde Sie aber eine Übersetzung geben: "Same! I see that you are also learning German, so I decided to reply to you in German. I will give you a translation though."
Ja, ich lerne Deutsch auch. Ich mag zwar diese Sprache nicht so, aber es ist für mich wichtig sie zu kennen. Und ich glaube, wir können uns "du" sagen, Sie ist zu formal. Ich versuche jetzt auch übersetzen, aber Englisch ist nicht meine Muttersprache. Yes, I am learning german too. I do not like this language so much but it is important for me to know it. And I think we can use "du" (informal, in English you have only 'you', how easy:-) ) I was just trying to translate it but English is not my mother tongue.
Warum ist es wichtig, dass du es weisst? Ich persönlich liebe Deutsch, aber das ist nur mich. Mein Fehler! Ich wusste nicht, dass Englisch nicht deiner Muttersprache ist. Dein Englisch ist gut!
Weil ich lebe nur 25 km von deutsche Grenze und muss Deutsch in meiner Arbeit benutzen. Aber sonst ist für mich Deutsch eine harte Sprache. Zum Vergleich mit italienisch, das ist total Unterschied, wenn ich italienisch spreche, das ist wie singen, einfach schöner für die Ohren. And I need to improve my English as well, thanks :-)
Long term consistency is important, whatever you do, do that every day. (a missed day is okay so long as it doesn't break the habit). At 2 weeks you are still in the "honeymoon" phase, when something else gets interesting will you still keep that amount? In practice that means you should feel like you could do more nearly everyday, but you are forcing yourself to stop.
The reason duolingo works is the spaced repetition. That means you need at least 6 points of review for every point of advancement. In the early days there isn't much review, as you get farther you need more review.
I have done 20 a day for over a year (I missed a week or so on vacation once which is why my steak isn't that high. I have decided to try 40 for a while to see how it goes but I might drop down.
I do anywhere between 10 (to keep my streak) and 600 a day but typically I do about 200 a day, anybody else in that range?
Ich glaube nicht, dass man das Wissen von täglich 600 XP wirklich gut behält. Wieviel davon bleibt wirklich im Langzeitgedächtnis? Gerade Russisch ist doch sicher eher anspruchsvoller.
Ja ich weiss, aber ich mache 600 nicht nur für eine Sprache, sonst für 6, also das ist wie 100 pro Sprache und das ist nicht so viel. Und von jeder Sprache habe ich schon ein bisschen Grundkenntnisse gehabt.
20xp a day to maintain streak.
Ok, I have started Spanish because I am going to travel in Latin America and I know that I will have Internet only for 2 weeks now, that's why I am little bit in hurry. On the road you never know when you can connect again (of course I will try to keep on). And then I added Italian (I can speak it little bit already), just not to forget what I already know and not mix it up with Spanish after some time. Then I added English, because even if I know the answer in other languages, I usually have mistakes in my English translation. And then I put German to improve it and started to learn French and Russian again (I learned it like 30 years ago). I think on the road I will have to slow down a little bit but now I have time because I do not work much. What I am doing is 50xp in Spanish with new lessons and then I try in each other language finish the skills. After that I repeat those skills in Spanish which are no more gold, sometimes it is 50xp, sometimes 100. And then the same with other languages. I do not have a line, how much XP I want to have every day, I just doing it until it makes fun to me... And because I already know the basic of all languages I am learning, I feel like with 20xp a day I would just not learn much. And thanks for all the comments :-)
It depends on how much time you have. I just started and am doing 100xp per day for one language. If you have a ton of time I'm sure you can do a lot more than I am.
I like to get between 300 and 500xp per day, though I've only been going for a week or two
I couldn't sleep and did 900 in German yesterday so for 2 days on duolingo I need 20xp to reach level 8 (a third on my way to 25), 50 xp is 10 to maximum 20 minutes of your time. I do appr. 200 xp per 25 minutes as the levels are still too easy. That's most likely your commute, or wake up procrastination time, or dinner cooking time.
I joined a while ago (around 4 months) and I really want to learn German. I today, so far, have 1340 points and hope to keep this going for days to come. Points are NOT too hard to get. But for people who can only spend about 20-30 mins on Duolingo it makes sense to keep the points low. ( I know I'm late in responding to this but why not)
i do as much as i can! but i started french the other day and did a whole 490
Hi lenka121888, seeing how many points you can get a day, or how quickly you can complete a tree, and so on and so forth, are very fun games. I played a similar fun game a while back with a language I had no knowledge of -- Basque -- on Memrise. However, these speed learning games are not ultimately sustainable or productive for language learning. I recommend half an hour minimum per language per day. Which, in Duolingo terms, I would say is 20-30 points per language per day. Slow and steady wins the race. Also, for a productive day, you probably want to break every 45 minutes.
Me, my priorities in order are : 1. Spanish, 2. Swedish, 3. Portuguese. I do 30 Spanish daily, and 20 Swedish, 20 Portuguese: 70 points a day. But when I have a really full-on Duolingo day, I will do 40 Spanish, 30 Swedish, 20 Portuguese: 90 XP. But I adjust as my priorities change. For example, once I've regilded my Spanish tree, I will likely drop my Spanish to the same as my Portuguese today, perhaps add 10XP more for Swedish and/or rebegin my English for Spanish speakers tree. Who knows what's going to happen when the Greek course is released, though! I need to do 20 XP a day in order to make it worthwhile, but 100+ XP I just don't think is that productive on a long-term basis. Not if you have other stuff to do. I work 12 hours a day, so 1 1/2 hours learning languages a day is a massive luxury.
I usually do from 500 to 2,000 XP per day, but today I had a contest with my friends and I got 4,865 XP.
