The Best Time of Day to Learn a New Language

I came across the following article and thought I should share it with you. It's a rather lengthy article, yet interesting: https://qz.com/1215361/the-best-time-of-day-to-learn-a-new-language-according-duolingo-data/

At the same time this is probably the time you have free. All chores done, babies asleep or homework ready. Great time of silence and productivity.

It may be as right as the fact that British statistics experts demonstrated that all people drinking water die.

I think the take-away from the article is that consistency is key AND that people who use Duolingo before bedtime are more consistent than others. They didn't mention trying to control for the age of the students ...

I think you hit the nail on the head. These statistics are useful if you use them to reflect on how your learning. Once you start looking at what works and what doesn't it doesn't take much to get a little more out of each session.

I'd also like to see the age statistics. I imagine college students have the wildest variation on time (due to their class schedules).
