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.

Do you feel over these 800 days, that it has helped you in a tremendous way? Can you speak those language well now?

April 14, 2019

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 love Harry Potter!

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.

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!

April 15, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/Blackwater13

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!

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.

What is your next goal?

April 17, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/Rockswamp28

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?

April 13, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/MikeNolan6

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?

April 13, 2019

Hahaha yesssss!!!!!!!
