Keeping them Golden

Dear Duolingo,

Golden skills are much nicer.

So I was wondering, how many words needs to be strengthened each day to keep up with the average rate of 'depletion' of vocabulary according to your 'vocabulary strength algorithms'?

For instance with a vocabulary of around 1000 words, which in real terms means around 5000 words due to genders and conjugations. How many would you need to practice per day? 20? 50?

Thanks,

This would be useful to help us keep our skills fresh, shiny and golden!

Regards Salfs

There can be no fixed answer to this, because the decay rate drops as you practise more. Just after I finished my Italian tree, I would sometimes lose (i.e. "de-gold") as many as ten skills a day. Now, a couple of months later, it tends to be about two skills a day.
