How do I stay committed to Duolingo?
I've been on and off Duolingo learning French for school and Spanish for fun over the past year or two. Anyone ave any tips for staying committed?
For me, Duolingo doesn't take a lot out of my day (I usually spend about 10 min or so on Duolingo each day)... I guess it is consistency and setting yourself small goals each day or week. (i.e. "I will earn XXX amount of XP's each week"). Good luck learning French and Spanish XD
Build it into your daily routine as something that gets done no matter what. Monday through Friday after I shower and get ready for work, at 7:00am I sit down on the couch with a cup of coffee in hand, fire up my laptop and practice Duolingo until 7:25am. My minimum goal is to maintain my daily streak by earning 20XP. Saturday and Sunday are not much different. I may sleep in a bit and not be on a timed schedule; but after I get ready for the day the coffee Duolingo routine is still the first thing I do. I've maintained this routine for almost a year now, and it's working well for me. Maybe it can work for you too.
I'm learning Spanish for school too and it is soooo much fun! Anyhow, I'd say do it when you think best. Personally I'm a morning/ afternoon person. Also it's more important to do it in little bits every day than like for an hour once a week. Keep me posted. I know you can do it!!!!
I do it as competition. I don't know if you have a family member doing Duolingo but I do . I have to maintain a streak and get to the next level before them that has worked for me. But if you don't have a family member or friend on Duolingo join a xp contest, that may work. :)
