Separate XP for each language

I have been thinking about this for a while and thought that I might as well ask if it might be a possibility for Duolingo develop this idea.

I am learning both Danish and French on Duolingo and my daily goal is 50 XP. However, I have noticed that I work more on Danish than French or I do all the 50 XP in Danish and then I don't have the incentive to work on my French.

Is it possible to separate the goals, where you can choose to, for example, either do 50 XP in both languages, or 10 XP in French, 40 XP in Danish?

I hope my question makes sense. Just curious.

you could go extreme and create a separate account for each language you learn :-)

No it's not possible. You can make sure you do it, write it down or something. Or you can just learn both per day.

:/ it's unfortunate that it hasn't been made possible. Writing it down would probably be a good idea, or I could just do 50 XP in both everyday

Duolingo used to offer separate streak per course (I think at one point the app and website approached this differently, one with separate streaks, one with same. I may have been part of a test group though.) They stopped doing that though. And the only reason they would drop it is if it degraded majority user experience. So, I doubt they'll bring it back.

It's actually still possible to find your individual-language streaks (it's just whether you did any XP at all, though, I assume; there's obviously no setting goals). It requites digging around in the html, though.

It is easy to find. Here is an example for the username piguy3

  • type in your browser: https://www.duolingo.com/users/piguy3
  • in the first row of the text you will see a few parameters for the last base language, you have used:
    {"language_data":{"ja":{"streak":18,"language_string":"Japanese"

That is certainly easier than the way I knew! Thanks! (although ctrl-f'ing through the html one can see all of them for all languages studied at once)

In the Firefox browser it is very easy to find.

Unfortunately, this works for only one base language at the same time.
I am doing 8 courses from 4 different base languages (Dutch, English, German and French). So, I have to switch the base language 4 times to see these overviews.

Thanks :) Seems a little complicated but works. It's pretty unfortunate that they don't have it already as part of the system though

:/ it's unfortunate that they stopped it, but I guess they did what was best for the site. Oh well
