Taking days off of duolingo practice.

How do users on here deal with this ? Is it better to use duolingo for a few days and take a break from it for a couple?

I think a little every day is better than doing it for hours and hours at a time.


I never missed a day until I mastered all the French units. It took me 3 months and every single day my "coin" stack was full (i.e. I got 91 or more skill points every day). I appreciated those stacks very much because they motivated me even when I was not very much inclined to study. Sometimes when I was too busy or tired I just refreshed some of older skills or did translations, thus earning points more quickly.

Taking a break is not bad if your willpower and motivation are strong enough to get you back to class after a while.


Do you think it would be wise if I invested more time each day? Because when I tried that for awhile with french, I had a hard time doing it.


I try to practice daily. Sometimes, though, I find that even a few days off can rejuvenate you. So like work, I take weekends off ha.
