Hi Elizabeth! What skill are you up to? I have only just finished "Verbs: Past Imperfect", but i have 4061 lingots!!! (look for me in the streak hall of fame here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/24089036)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElizabethBell02

I had a look at the link, but I couldn't see your name! What section do I look in?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EmilyMMM2015

All of my skills are gold except for 8 skills, and I keep trying to strengthen them! On the streak hall of fame, I have a 870 streak and a silver owl (or medal?) and the SHoF gets updated every Sunday, so tomorrow there will be a new streak hall of fame post. What stuff have you bought from the lingot store? Did you know that on Christmas day (and a little before and after, I think) a new french skill comes up on the lingot store called "Christmas", so when Christmas day comes, don't forget to buy it! (I have got everything from the lingot store including "Christmas", "Streak Freeze" and "Double or Nothing".) BTW have you got timed practice?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElizabethBell02

LOADS of my skills aren't gold!!! Lots to strengthen!!! Erm, I've bought everything I can from the lingot store (except 'double your lingot wager' and 'streak protector'. OK, I'll remember about the Christmas skill! and I've managed to find your name on the streak of fame at last! Keep it up!!!! Just wondering, have you bought the streak protector just in case you accidentally miss a day?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EmilyMMM2015

Oh, I cross edited!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElizabethBell02

What does that mean? And yes, I have timed practice. and I've just seen that yes, you have streak freeze. Oh, I think I see what you mean now by 'cross edited.'


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EmilyMMM2015

Yes, it has saved me so many times! Once we went on a weekend holiday without WI-FI, so on the Friday, early in the morning, I did duolingo, and I also did duo late at night on the Sunday evening, so on the Saturday, I didn't lose my streak!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElizabethBell02

Good. so I guess you always have a streak freeze in handy!!! one way to use up lingots, although you'll always get more lingots as your streak gets better, I suppose!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EmilyMMM2015

We are both cross editing! ;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EmilyMMM2015

Wait, I have actually got a 877 streak! Why does it say that i have a 876?!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EmilyMMM2015

Oh, it's fixed now! (duo saying that I have a 876 day streak when I actually have a 877 streak)

Hello people! Nice to meet you all! My name is Woof. I can only speak English but I'm learning French, Spanish, and Japanese.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElizabethBell02

Hello Woof!!!!! thanks for joining the discussion. Keep going with French.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Woof.

Merci. You too! Your level is very impressive! Have you finished the tree?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElizabethBell02

Oh no! I think there are 25 levels in French! You're doing well with Spanish.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Woof.

Merci. But you can finish the tree before level 25 actually. I have seen some people who finished theirs at level 11. Are you planning to take other languages when you finish French and Welsh, or will you take your them further, or neither one?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElizabethBell02

yes, I think the trees vary in length. I'm not sure whether I'll take my languages further yet. How about you?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Woof.

I'm not planning to take Japanese further, but I will take Spanish. As for French, I'm not sure yet.
