Does your Spanish tree stay golden?

I was just wondering if the Spanish tree stays golden after you strengthen it. Any help would be appreciated!!!

I can't speak for Spanish, but my French tree has stayed golden for over a month now. I'd say about half of all the things I do on Duolingo are strengthening exercises.

Only for a while. It is less likely to deteriorate if you strengthen it a lot.

Cool, thanks for telling me.

isn,t it hard to get a streak 4 over a month?

I've seen people with 500+

The longest streak is 1600 days (something like that)

for real? that's ridiculous!

I would say do strengthening exercises.

If you don't get on daily, your tree won't be golden.

i do get on daily, so maybe it'll stay golden?

I don't want to sound rude, but who cares if it's gold or not? As long as you can remember the lessons YOU are gold in my book.

My first language is Spanish. If you ever need help with the lessons, feel free to ask me and I'll try to help.

P.S. The gold trees do look nice though, but is just bragging rights. Same with levels.

thx, will keep in mind.

Also, duolingo suggests that you actually review the topics once the skill has reached half-way down. It's easy to repeatedly go over the exercise but gradually the memory fades, which is why duolingo suggests this so it actually becomes more noticeable to your brain despite your recent lack of activity.

All of the trees go down after a while to help encourage you to keep remembering the things.

nice day streak!

Ah, thank you! I've been practicing it every morning in order to keep it up ^^:
