If you want to keep your streak, that might be a problem. But if you just want to practice for the sake of it, it's fine not to do it on weekends. Rome wasn't built in a day, after all. It takes a while to build up a language.

thanks lily flower. i like how you said "Rome wasn't built in a day, after all."

sssssssssuuuuuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrew

No. Doing or not doing Duolingo isn't a moral issue. It's not bad or good. Not doing lessons on the weekend might hold back your learning, however.


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

you know i just really want to thank duolingo for everything. you people have made me feel so welcomed


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

You'd probably forget some of what you learned, depending on what you do during the weekend. But you can just do some practice and eventually get it back.


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

oh ok. thanks. the only reason why i cant do it on weekend is because i dont have access to tech @ home. i relly hope people dont think less of me for that


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Elin.7-1

Why would we think less of you? Anyone who does that does not have an opinion that should matter to you.

It's your life, and you live it in the best way you know how. Someone else may think a different way is "better" but they never know all of your inputs/contraints/reasons.

Listen to advice, think about it, use what is useful but don't feel compelled to follow it.

As much practice as you can do is the best for you ;o)

Good luck and enjoy the ride!

thanks.dang your a good friend

I can't reply directly to either of your posts above...namely: "What?" and "I'm not on level 6 yet", so:

croeso - you're welcome in Welsh

prego - you're welcome in Italian

;o)


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

im not on level 6 yet?


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

I never do it on the weekends, and there's no trouble.


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

Good for you. Some people can't do this however.


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

I haven't done it on weekends since I started here almost a month ago. Either I haven't had time or I was busy. So no, its not bad at all


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

i like the username 21 dragons. thats cool


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

Thanks! Its a combination of the names of two of my favorite bands. I have quite a few favorite bands, but duo would only let me use so many letters lol


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

let me guess....twenty one pilots and imagine dragons?


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

Yep! Lol nice guess :)


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

I don't believe it would be that bad. You're still studying for the majority of the week. Even public schools give kids the weekends off :)


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

thanks i like that answer too...may i follow you?


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

of course you can! You don't need to ask that because it is an honour to be followed!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ellensheehy10

I never to duo on weekends... I probably am not quite as awesome as I could be, but I try hard when I do do duo, and that's all that matters.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ellensheehy10

And I am not to concerned on keeping a streak... so I personally think it's OK;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bakugou.Babe

hi my name is Raegan!! I like your profile pic! do you want to fallow each other? :^)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bakugou.Babe

can I fallow every one here?


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

Sure! You can follow me :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ellensheehy10

You technically don't need to ask somebody to follow them... But I love considerate people! And it's nice to ask, in my opinion.


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

ya. im just that kind of person


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

I think it can be even useful since your thoughts settle down a little bit and you might not make common mistakes from last week when you start learning again next week.


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

good thought...i agree.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/animallove275758

If you want to keep a streak,you probably want to do it on weekends.


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

Everyone has a different schedule. I would say take a day (or two) off every week if your schedule is busy (or if you have some spiritual or emotional reason to do so).

I tend to do duolingo everyday (missing the occasional day when I'm really busy), but I like doing it and it helps keep me motivated. If you can keep it up without doing it on the weekends, that's cool too.


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

yeah you'd lose ur streak


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HannahThomas13

If you want a streak you may have to do it every day...... but besides that, it would be fine!! It is important to keep a balance in what you do. You only live once, enjoy it :) #YOLO


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Marie-Clai133496

"bad" does not come into it, it's just that the streak really motivates you to sit down and study every day. You won't have that to keep your motivation going long term. However, it is not impossible to learn at a different pace... Good luck with your studies!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/warriorg315

NO, YOU MUST DO IT ALL THE TIME!!! Just kidding. I rarely get to it on Sunday or Saturday, what with Church, fitness classes with Mom, choir, and all that jazz. Sometimes I don't even get to it on weekdays! I'm so lazy, and just want to sit around and watch Studio C (hilarious comedy, by the way). Or else I'm too excited for something else that day. (Shrugs) (I'm kind of ADHD, soooo...) Anyway! SPQR, my friends! Ciao! Warriorg315


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

omg!! you practice italian? can you be my partner?


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

Learning might be slower, and you will never have a long streak. But so what?


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

oh ok thanks...apparently i cant either
