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 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.
