My streak is at 800 days
I hit the 800 day point on my Duo streak today. I know that's still minor league compared to some of the long-timers, but it's a long time for me.
Minor? Pffft, that's fantastic!
Congratulations on the consistency of your practice ... Well done.
Minor? It's magnificent. Enjoy the moment. I lingot you in congratulation.
Boy, would I love to see my streak at 800. I can't imagine the pure dedication that you have. Please, take this lingot.
Congratulations on hitting the 800-day milestone. May there be other milestones in your future. :)
Congratulations, That is very impressive not minor! keep up the good work. Lingot coming your way. :)
Well done on a fantastic achievement . I passed that same milestone a few days ago.
Do you feel over these 800 days, that it has helped you in a tremendous way? Can you speak those language well now?
I know enough French that I've started reading the Harry Potter books in French, and have plans for other books. Eventually I'd like to read some of the classics of French literature in French, but books like Les Miserables use tenses that are seldom used these days, even in written French.
As to conversing in French, I don't really think those are skills Duo excels at teaching.
I have using Duolingo to refresh three languages - French (from school), German (from uni) and Polish ( have a Polish wife). I still use online dictionaries and grammar books to help out as well.
I found that Duolingo has definitely made a difference, in that I can now speak and understand all three languages much better again.
My wife has offered that opinion once or twice in the nearly 47 years we've been married. :-)
WOW, my parents have been married over 40 years too, congratulations!
That's totally awesome! Congratulations! And trust me, that is NOT minor. I just started, I haven't even been here for a week yet, you're doing awesome! Just spent my lingots, but I'll throw a few your way tomorrow!
820 days is an awesome achievement as well! Well done to you!
You started one day after me! Are you still enjoying Duolingo?
My next challenge will be the new Latin course when it arrives! Can’t wait!
Hi Simon, yes I still enjoy Duolingo very much. I started Turkish lately and it's pretty demanding :) Good luck with your studies and congrats for your streak too!
I took 2 years of Latin some 50 years ago, I might dabble with that one myself.
That is 26.3 months or 2 years, 2 months that is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Holy moly way to go. I’m proud of my 75 pidly days hoping to make 100 then 183 or 6 months. I say yell it from the rafters you have A LOT to be proud of.
I have a quick question: at that high of a streak, can you literally just buy streak freezes everyday using the rewards for continuing the streak which replenish your lingots?
A streak freeze costs 10 lingots, so it would cost 100 lingots to buy 10 days worth of streak freezes.
I only got 80 lingots for hitting 800 days. I have enough lingots built up that I could buy 387 days of streak freezes, so it's technically possible for me right now. Now, once someone hits 1000 days, anyone could do it, even if they don't have a stack of lingots in the bank.
But you'd have to log in every day to extend the streak, so why not just do a lesson instead?
Félicitations!! J'espère atteindre ce niveau moi aussi un jour, mais je commence encore :) !
and here i am proud of almost making it to two weeks.. i have much to learn
Nothing minor about 800!!! Congratulations!!! If I ever get to an 800 day streak, I don't know what I'll do, probably make a post about it! ;)
