1,000 Day Streak! Woohoo!!
So yesterday I finally achieved what I never thought I would achieve: a 1,000 day streak! Haha, I want to do a lesson right now, but I will do it later so I can cherish this achievement a little longer, and to get a small rest.
I don't have much more to say but to thank you all for being amazing and wonderful people on the comments and discussions sections!! All your assistance and kind words really helps a lot, especially for motivation! For those who wonder how many lingots I have, I have 6,315. I would have a bunch more, but I usually give them away to nice and helpful people.
Also, here is a list of other learning materials I use: Memrise, Babbel, Rosetta Stone, Mango Languages, Tiny Cards, YouTube videos, my hand (LOL, I always write words on it so I can stare at it all day), and books (such as French Now!, Easy French, Japanese From Zero!, etc.).
I wish you all the best in achieving your goals in Duolingo! And now to relax. :-)
Thanks a bunch Operaphile! You already have an impressive streak yourself!
About my photo... I was a Peace Corps volunteer who lived in a hut. I saw this hand-made hut that I loved so much, which makes beautiful smells if you put scents on top and a candle on the inside. Anyways, long story short... it kind of looks like the hut I lived in, so I bought it, took its picture, and now it's my profile pic! :-)
Every day since January 11, 2015...11 months before I joined. (⊙_⊙) Great job! ❤
Thanks for the kind words P-Code!
Oh no I am not a polyglot. I'm much better in French though! The problem is I'm addicted with learning languages, so I don't concentrate on one only, which is why I'm not fluent in most of the languages I'm learning. What I usually do is French every single day, German on weekdays, Japanese on the weekends, Spanish when I meet someone speaking Spanish, and American Sign Language when I have more free time (I use Memrise for this).
It's difficult, but I'm not hard on myself, which is why I continued my steak without being so frustrated! :-)
Thanks a lot Sharon822547! Haha, I'm a student teacher, and my students are usually curious as to what words I'm learning (or just wondering why my hand looks dirty from all the writing) because something is usually written on my hand. I wish you the best and 20 more days for your year streak! :-)
That's a big accomplishment! There are so many different ways to lose a streak. Getting sick, oversleeping, being busy, even the internet shutting down, or just being tired and not feeling up to it. But to keep at it for 1,000 days despite all the things that can keep you from wanting to miss just one day...You've really done well! <3
