I reached a 1000 days on DL!!! Phew! I have recently stopped switching around between languages. I'm going to keep on doing Spanish until I've finished the expanded tree.

Funny coincidence: my last exercise before completing to get 1000 was in the subject 'Routines', and it was a picture of a bald old man, saying "I have to study."

I think that sums up my motivation for doing this, and while I'm not old or bald (yet), I do expect at any age, I'll continue making use of that phrase, if not in English, in one of the many languages I'll have learned, thanks in great part to Duolingo and this community.

P.S. Thank you to my friends for putting up with my addiction. You too have reached a 1000 day streak. Congratulations!

You'll get there. Just don't lose motivation on the way because it's so easy to lose that streak once that motivation goes.

Trust me, I've been there. I've used a lot of streak freezes because I haven't been motivated.

I've just lost a 99 day streak but not sure how it happened. I usually use my tablet, at home. I've been away for 3 days and used my phone for Duolingo. Back home, back on the tablet, my 99 day streak wiped out. But I have a 3 day streak on my phone. Don't know how that happened. Very confusing. But well done robert.bowman, congrats.

Hi Robert,

congrats to your dedication and achieved missions.

Du hast mit Deinen Sprachen ja richtig Gas gegeben! ;)
Ich glaube ich werde froh sein wenn ich in 343 weiteren Tagen meine beiden Portugiesisch Rückwärtsbäume durch habe (goldene Eule) und bei EN-PT mich erfolgreich auf das Level-Up der schwierigeren Verb Zeiten Grammatik Skills konzentriert habe.

Welche der angezeigten Sprachen kannst Du denn zwischenzeitlich am Besten schreiben oder sprechen?
Chattest Du viel um die Sprache zu üben?

Which Duolingo course do you like better?
Spanish, French or Portuguese?

Have you already finished your PT tree update from June 2018?

I liked the superb crystal clear Spanish audio on www.Lingvist.com a bit better than Duolingo or Google Spanish TTS when I did the placement test to level 9 (I have now resetted the SP tree).

BTW: I had "learned" (probably forgotten the most) my first 1000 Spanish words on Lingvist with my "end of 2017 year challenge" in 11 days and 20 hours but for now I have stopped reviewing as I firstly would have to re-learn Spanish - lesson by lesson - here again on Duolingo from scratch.

Don't you also prefer - like me - the Portuguese BR TTS over Spanish TTS on this platform? ;)

Viele Grüße

A question. Have you practised every day, or did you use the streak freeze/bought back the streak? I can't imagine being able to keep my streak up for so long without forgetting (my last 'long' (ish) one was lost due to travelling and going through many time zones!).

A streak freeze was used once when I went away camping outside of data range. I did lessons already saved on phone anyway because I didn't trust the freeze. Anyway, yes, I have practiced at least once every day and never bought back. I do it right before going to sleep and usually 30-90 minutes during the day, and it's rare that I have any close calls where it gets late and I haven't reached goal.
