Practicing against the clock on Duolingo - 1000xp just because! [Video]

Hallo! This is sort of a product of WaterPolyglot's "1000xp a day for a year" challenge, only without the crazy part "for a year". xD

Last night while I was practicing and getting prepared for a long night of insomnia, I decided to make a video showing "how" I usually practice. It's really nothing from the other world, I just open two tabs and keep jumping from one of them to the other, and vice versa. The result of me recording that is here: https://youtu.be/qRI681Nfl6E and it's to be publicly accessible by the time I post this discussion.

Now I know some of you have done much more than that, so I'll leave that question here: What's the most XP you have earned in one day?

Saludos, and happy learning =(^.^)=

    The most XP I've ever gotten in a day was around 3,000 when I finished the Italian tree.


    Woah, Impressive!

      Thanks, Woof. ❤

        Thanks, Matsu. ❤


        Holy wow! How did you get 3,000 in one day? If you used just Timed Practice and somehow got 20XP every 2 minutes, that would still take 5 hours without stopping. Was this before Immersion was removed?

        [deactivated user]

          Yes, it was after immersion left. It was one weekend during the summer where nothing was going on, and I was under pressure because I would be leaving for Italy in around a month. I decided to stop slacking off, time practice the weak skills, and finish the tree. I spent countless hours relentlessly slugging away at the course. I was a zombie afterwards...(´-ω-`)


          Post study zombie brain. Totally been there! hehe

            The most I have ever done in a day was 200. Congratulations! @_@


            Why do you have a tab that says skills strength on the right?


            It is a userscript. It tracks the internal strength of multiple skills by calculating the strength of every word within it. You can find it by clicking here

            The instructions for installation are in there as well.


            What's the most XP I've earned in one day? A very low amount, A.K.A 290XP.


            Wow, my top is 67, I should probably try harder, shouldn't I?


            About 6-7000, but that was back in the days of Immersion :) After Immersion, I didn't have the patience anymore, so congrats to you for getting 1000 just on lessons alone!


            There are also stories.


            Almost 2000, I think. But I tested out of parts that I already knew of the Danish tree. This was sometime in mid-September.


            I got about 1500 XP on one day.


            So cool! Thanks for the video!
