How to do Duolingo

Currently, I'm ensuring that a skill is gold before moving on to new skills. This method is very slow considering some days I can only do 10XP :(

If I rush through the tree, I feel like I'll forget everything. Is there a correct method??

Thank you!!!! :)

You have to do what works best for you and find your own pace. I like to balance new skills and review, so I finish the first crown level of a skill and move on, then go back and review everything once I hit a new checkpoint. If I find myself having difficulty remembering a particular skill, I spend more time on it. If I find new material is getting too difficult, I spend more time on review before advancing.

Lots of users get each skill gold before moving on, and that pace works for them. I find that way boring, and I lose interest, so it doesn't work for me. Some people might find my pace too fast, and they would forget what they've learned and get frustrated. No one can tell you the "correct" way because it depends on the individual. You can try getting a skill up to level 3 and moving on, and then ask yourself if that pace is too fast or too slow for you, and adjust accordingly.

Great questioning. I have this doubt too.

I did 50XP per day for almost six months, but work has been such a load that I cut back to 10 per day for the foreseeable future. I think it's more important to do some every day, rather than at a specific rate, just to keep one's skills from rusting.
