Only Another 2,147,453,643 XP To Go...

30,004 XP down. Only another 2,147,453,643 XP to go to get to Level 26.

The number 2,147,483,647 is the maximum positive value for a 32-bit signed binary integer in computing. It is therefore the maximum value for variables declared as integers (e.g., as int) in many programming languages and the maximum possible score, money, etc. for many video games.

Challenge accepted. :)

I wonder what would actually happen if you reached the impossible level 26, would everything reset?

Congratulations on your level 25! And good luck with getting to the 26th, of course :)

If you did 30 XP a day, it would take about 196,000 years to get to level 26. If you did 200 XP, it would be 30,000 years.

Thanks for all your comments. Much appreciated.

Without doubt, LOL. Nine quintillion XP could be somewhat tricky... (although maybe I'd have mastered prepositions by then).

I know officially we can't reach level 26 but I have been congratulated twice in the past (by Duolingo) for reaching it and on other occasions also been told it was my 'goal for today'. Needless to say I remain at level 25!

Congratulations on reaching Level 25 in Italian!

I will get there one day :D

290 XP a day... that's impressive. How does one achieve such an amount of XP in a day?

@Germaron

Just time really. Although this post is about XP, I don't really pay much attention to XP in reality. I prefer to go by time, so each of those is about 4 hours (with a short break in the middle). Broken down, it's roughly a new lesson every two hours, with the rest of the time spent in the 'Strengthen Skills' section and reading comments to clarify why exactly that particular preposition is used, instead of the one I think Italians should be using. ;)

Four hours, now that's dedication. Where would your Italian proficiency at right now? (A1-C1)

Hehe, I like the way you put it. I've always heard that Italian was supposedly an easy language, but some things, at least the way I see them, are completely counter intuitive. Anyhow, wishing you the best of luck on reaching level 26 ;)

A1-C1 is not something I've come across before, so I have no idea. I wanted to learn Italian for a while, then just over a year ago I discovered Duolingo. This provided me with a way to do it, which I wouldn't have otherwise been able to afford. So how I see it is just making the most of it really. To 26... and beyond! :)

Duolingo really is a great and super accessible tool to learn languages, despite all of it's flaws. Cheers :)
