My goal is to complete all the trees from English, Spanish and German, plus any reverse or ladder combination that arises from them.
I've only achieved it 2-3 times since I started here (there were just 5 basic languages back then)... fortunately, duo keeps throwing new owls at me when I'm about to get there :-)

My ultimate duo goal would be to complete a Finnish course, so I guess I'll be here for a while :-p

Please ignore the fluency rating, it is meaningless. Far better to rate your "fluency" by how comfortable you are in a conversation in the language you are learning.

how comfortable you are in a conversation is a great way to rate it!

Saying I want Duolingo to rate my fluency as 55% by January is like saying I want Duolingo to rate my abs as 55%. Not only does Duolingo know as much about my fluency as it does about my physique, but giving a percentage to either one is meaningless. Okay, that's an unfair comparison. 55% abs clearly means I have a 3 1/3-pack, whereas no one knows what 55% fluency means.

Once again, ignore the fluency rating, it means nothing. Make your goal "feeling comfortable" in communicating your language in general conversation. That is a far more sensible goal.

As of now, I just started this crazy goal that I find very challenging which is to get 1000XP a day. I started yesterday, and was only able to make it halfway (because I had things to do and places to go, and I started later in the day). But today, I'm aiming to make it all the way! Some people might find this easy, and some might find it impossible, and to be honest, I use to feel like it was impossible. But now, I plan to make it possible! Its not as amazing as some of all of your guys' goals, but its something :)

TwentyOneDragons, that is an awesome goal. It might be crazy, that's only for you to say. It is 100 skills. Should take maybe an hour or two? One thought: You might want to set your official daily goal lower (in fact I hope you have) so that if you don't reach 1000 xp one day, you won't lose your streak. My daily goal is set at 1 xp and of course I do loads more.

Thanks!!! My goal is set to way lower, its only set to 50xp a day, which is what I always aimed for before I decided to try and go way higher. Its a challenge (especially since I have other schoolwork to worry about) but its so fun and it gives me motivation to keep moving forward :)

I have several goals:

  • practicing every day in Spanish

  • practicing regularly in French and German

  • keeping skills mostly gold.

  • hanging in there, while hoping that a way of communicating with Duolingo friends returns.

100 percent fluent isn't possible , 'cause 77 percent is maximum.

Hmmm. I want to finish my Spanish tree and then do the reverse, by let's say the end of the year. I still have a ways to go, and may not finish the reverse (it isn't as much of a concern for me though to be fair).

Then I want to do the Swahili tree, and the Japanese and German ones next. Ugh, so many beautiful languages to learn, so little time! :)

I guess that’s true. I’m about to finish Spanish. Probably going to do Greek or Hebrew next. Maybe Swahili idk.

It looks like your doing the same thing, right?

So my goals are: Finish my trees, and their reverse and ladder trees, , to be able to converse about general topics in my languages, especially in German and in Spanish, then to do at least 200 XP every day, except Sunday. Then to begin and finish the Swahili and Hindi courses.

My biggest goal or wish is to complete a Duolingo FINNISH course, even if by that time I had learnt Finnish.
