  5. One Year Streak!

One Year Streak!

Hey! I've been learning French here on Duolingo for a year now, and I've loved everyday of it! My self-esteem and my confidence has definitely grown throughout this year, because I've learned that I have the persistence and the drive to commit to doing lessons everyday. I'm almost done with my French tree, which I know isn't that much of an accomplishment for a year of learning it, but with all of the extracurriculars and performances that I have, it makes me very happy that I was able to do at least this well! I would recommend Duolingo to anyone who wants to learn a second language. Fortunately, I found Duolingo before I paid for an expensive app, and I'm so happy that I did! Thank you Duolingo for everything you've done for me, and I'm going to work hard to finish my French tree soon! Au Revoir! - Georgia Kate

You're welcome and thank you...! Ah, German is not going too well, but I feel really confident about French. I will keep trying, though...!

    Congrats! I love duo too! Do you think that you'll start another tree?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GeorgiaCake13

    I think that once I finish my French tree, or at least get close to finishing it, then I'll learn Spanish, because it's my mother's second language, and I would love to be able to have conversations with her in Spanish! :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GeorgiaCake13

    Thank y'all for all the kind words, y'all have made me so happy! :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/saraaa091

    Thank you! I think this summer, I'll focus on completing my French tree, so by the next school year, I can begin Spanish!

    Merci! J'espère que vous passez une bonne journée! :)

    Congratulations! But how do you do it? It is extremely difficult to even keep a streak for 7 days. Do you have any advice?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GeorgiaCake13

    Thanks! As long as you are determined, then you can do it! Also, make sure to get streak freezes! ;)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JettCrandall

    thank you so much!!

    Well done! I managed to get myself to about 80 days and then the streak started to feel more like a burden than a motivator. To each their own, I suppose.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ljlafleur

    I have two pieces of advice: First is to find one habit (or routine) you've already got, then connect DL to it. Second, don't try to be a hero; just 5 minutes is enough.

    I'm at 78 days now. I've found that by getting into routines where I can just do one lesson, I'm successful. For example, I do one (~5 minutes) as soon as I park my car at work-before I even go in the door.

    I also start one when my breakfast is cooking (3 minutes), then finish it as I eat (3-5 minutes). I'm not looking to do 30 minutes or anything, just 5 min per day. I often get far more than that, but that's all just icing. My streak only needs 5 minutes, and they're built in.

    Georgia, you rock! Thanks for inspiring me!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GeorgiaCake13

    Oh my gosh, you are so kind! Thank you! ;)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GeorgiaCake13

    You absolutely don't need to have a long streak to be motivated, but in my situation, it makes me very proud that I do! :)

    Félicitations! Et bon courage pour la suite et l'année prochaine!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GeorgiaCake13

    Merci! Je vous souhaite bonne chance pour votre avenir Duolingo aussi!
