Goal of points-Duolingo
Does anyone know what the goal of points is (XP)
XP are experience points. You earn them by doing lessons and reviews. When you have accumulated enough, you level up to the next level. The number you need to level up starts at 60 xp and rises up to about 4000 (I think) when you're at level 24, working on getting to level 25.
As RobertoAlerto says, they are primarily motivational.
I set mine to 1 and forgot about them. Maybe its to motivate, But lose your streak just once and the world turns black and glum. Let the points, bury the points. Let's learn something.
