Hey I work 13 hours a day and when I get home I'm exhausted! Any advice to give me on how to maintain my streak? Thanks xx

With a busy schedule like that, perhaps you can look for a daily moment that you have to wait for something, for example when you're on a train, while your food is heating up during cooking, etc. This way you can have a fixed moment of the day without really losing time you'd otherwise spend on something else.

Good luck with your studies.

Set you daily goal to the lowest (10XP), and make effective use of your time en el baƱo. Just don't blame me if you have the tendency to drop things whilst in said location...

If your tired just do an easy lesson to get by for a day. If you are up late do 1 lesson at 11:45 and the 2nd lesson at 12:01 then your covered for the next day. But then taking a day or two off can be good for the brain.

you could buy a streak freeze, from the lingot store, whenever you don't feel up to practicing.

I do one lesson in the morning with my morning coffee for the streak, and then if I have time and energy during the day I do more practice with no pressure

I lost my first one when I was moving house and it slipped my mine one evening. Duolingo very kindly offered to restore it for a large amount of money!! I'm working on an 108 day streak now! need to focus and not forget again!

PS, need friends for the award! Please add me :)

lol probably a good idea but I'm actually saving for a trip to France!

Ah, that makes lot of sense.

Sort of an interesting dilemma in a way... not enough time for studying French because of the need to work to in order to save enough to be able to go to France ;-)

But without dilemmas life would be boring.

Do an easy one. Or click on practice. Those usually only take a few minutes.

There's a feature that allows you to trade your lingots for streak credit. I suppose you could do that. I don't think I'll use that because it feels wrong to me. If I miss a day then I miss a day. I'll lose that little pomegranate thing (or whatever it is) but most importantly I won't forget all the spanish or french I learned just by missing a day.
