Reached Level 25 - What happens next?
I don't want to damage my streak. I reached Level 25 in English to French. Now it shows continued points being added when I do a lesson but the next "milestone" is 7 digits away, i.e., unattainable and I know there is no level 26. If I continue to do English to Spanish and start French to English, can I stop doing English to French every day or will I stop my streak? I am pretty proud of my streak.... :-)
After you finish your tree you will not really be done you will still have to refresh the gold lessons and you will learn more you could also learn a different language or just focus on your Spanish for now
You won't have a language streak (that's only on the apps anyway, so if you always use the web version it won't matter), but you will keep your streak. :-) So if tomorrow you don't do any English to French but you do your English to Spanish, your streak will go up just the same as it has been. :-) Pretty impressive streak, by the way!
Could you relocate this discussion in the “Troubleshooting" forum? Which is the place meant for such discussion. Thx!
To relocate it (\/!\ please, don’t create a new one \/!\), edit your original post then select said forum in the drop-down menu on top-left of the edition area (see here for details).
Have a look to this short guide to help you knowing where to post your (future) discussions on Duolingo’s forums.
Note: See A_User for the answer to your question. ;)
1) Do a reverse tree, that is French, learning English, it is much harder, as you will have to type lots of French, and the XP carries over to your total (although the badges don't)
2) Add some extra study materials, courses like Michael Thomas and Pimsleur are great for getting pronunciation right, and there are countless YouTube channels for you to study each grammar point you've just learned over Duolingo, while you revise each lesson.
3) Immerse yourself. Get a new song to work on every week, learn the lyrics, understand them and learn how to sing the song, use apps like Filmon to watch German tv channels, translate articles and follow blogs and podcasts related to your interests.
4) Focus on the rewards. A second, third, fourth language, and so on, can mean a 50% or more higher salary in most areas. Do not ever spend a day without taking 20 minutes to 2 hours to focus on a language, and you'll do just fine.
I started doing French to English and I REALLY am enjoying it because somehow it really illustrates how the French language thinks and it makes me write a lot more French than I did doing the English to French.
Your streak will continue even if you do a different language every day.
