Some encouragement. . .
I know learning a language is hard. I've trying to learn Italian for a long time, because I have family is Sicily that I visit from time to time. It's hard, but everyone can do it if they try hard enough. Here's some things I'll tell you guys, just for some encouragement:
Overall, the streak doesn't matter, but it can really help you. Sometimes, you just forget about it, than after a few days you look back and see you've gotten lots of XP and you have a pretty nice streak! Then you decide to try harder, and you go for a really long streak, and you do it! Sometimes it can be as simple as that.
Don't give up! You can totally do this!(another nice reason for the streak)
Enjoy learning the language. Honestly, Duolingo makes it a lot of fun! And you have something to look forward to in the end -- that you've just learned a bit of a new language!
I'm not a moderator or anything, but I just wanted to encourage people to do their best. Have a great day! :)
