1000 Day Streak!

Just hit it this morning! Woohoo!!!! But next week I'm on holidays... and I'm not sure what the Wi-fi will be like! I've been learning Spanish for this trip, and it will be so ironic if my streak breaks while I'm in a Spanish speaking part of the world!!!!

Symbolic streak break, breaking out of your old Spanish level and into a higher level.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vesna2691

One more day for you. I congratulate you in advance! :-D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/unicornbetrayal

this is a bruh moment


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/zyxwvutsrqpo

Not sure what that means :P


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hannibal-Barkas

Congrats to you for your own 1000 days


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/zyxwvutsrqpo

Thank you :), responding late because I didn't want to draw the attention away.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Linda7Italian

Elvpe. And congrats to you too in case I don't get back here tomorrow, one more to go.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/zyxwvutsrqpo

Ti ringrazio :), ti sto rispondendo in ritardo perché non volevo attirare l'attenzione.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Linda7Italian

Well done on the 1000 day streak. Reduce your xp goal to 1, just in case. It may help you keep your streak. But if it goes, keep smiling, you have all the knowledge. Best wishes...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/rolosrevenge

Congratulations! I recommend getting a mobile phone plan with free international data. It helps a ton for maintaining the streak.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/julienvanbeveren

Wow you have a big streak. But you have only 78 levels? Did you deleted your'e advance? Good luck anyways. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lightning_11

Probably just from doing the practises over and over... like me. You don't get flag levels for that, otherwise, I would be about level 21 now... ):


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Szab

More than 2000 days!? Ugh, it's amazing, congratulations!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AndresGarner

Congrats on your streak! it shows that you have been a very dedicated learner, keep up the excellent work!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/durasplice

Congratulations on your 1,000 day streak. I just hit 1,500 today. It is not so hard to keep the streak when in the same time zones, give or take a couple of hours. I have traveled to South America, a couple of times during this streak. The bigger issue is going to the Middle East and the Far East. It becomes more tricky to keep the streak because of flight time and finding Wifi in the Airports. I was just in Australia and could not find a Wifi connection in the airport. So, I used my AT&T roaming to do my lessons. When I got back, I found out that cost me $110 in roaming fees. Oh, well, the streak is still there. It was worth the money to me. A big zero would have been a killer. I have had the zero after 320 days. It is hard to pick up from there. Good luck.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/APRILBROWN4

Congratulations on the consistency of your practice ... Well done.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielTap135

How'd you put that Duo owl on?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mikey184382

How did you do that?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/julienvanbeveren

I am actually going for the flirting skills of 30 Lingots but I give you my last 10 ones. Your'e Welcome !!!!!!!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/no.name.42

Here, take some of mine, I have over twelve thousand, so


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ne71A1

no way really? how do you get so much? I have 46 currently but imma give some to hermione.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hermione256

Aww... thanks so much!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/An_Artists_Blade

Congrates! the highest streak I've gotten was a 20 day streak!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lightning_11

My best streak went for 7 days... I always forget on the weekend!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielTap135

My highest streak was 14. Could never get it back since i lost out


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Thomas.Heiss

Hi,

congrats.

In only 95 days you will level up to the next gold SHOF rank on www.duome.eu! :-)

I am curious: How do you practice Spanish and French both in parallel?

  • Same day?
  • Do you learn NEW words / lessons for both in the morning?
  • How do you catch up the learned words in both languages to be able to use spaced repetition (SR) for the next optimal 4-5h / 12h review intervals laters in the afternoon/evening or before you go to bed?
  • Do you confuse French and Spanish when you do both in the morning?
  • How long is your break between them? 1-1,5 hours? 4+ hours? 1 day?

Quote: But next week I'm on holidays... and I'm not sure what the Wi-fi will be like

Can't you go with a data SIM card and 3G/LTE (4G)?

Good luck! Enjoy your trip.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hermione256

I did just write a big answer, but my wifi crashed and it's gone. So to sum up, I have only been doing Spanish lately because I have lots of background in French already, and I have other strategies (e.g. novels) to practice my French. I never do both languages in a day... too confusing! And my phone plan is super basic, just talk and text, so I will need wi-fi for sure!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Thomas.Heiss

Hi Hermione,

sorry to hear about your crash and losing your long answer.
It ocassionally happens to me, but nowdays I always copy & paste my texts into a notepad on the Laptop so if the browser crashes or the DL server gets resetted or simply does not show my posted text (which happens more often) I can just repost it with no problem.

Sometimes I do forget to copy my text as a backup :-)

PhraseExpress is a nice program which allows you to copy not only the last text from the clipboard but several old texts from the memory which you can select, if you might have overwritten the one with the other.

Anyways, thanks for finding the nerves to repost again this summary especially with this situation.
Sums it up very well and I think I can benefit from your advise when I try PT->FR and PT->ES Duolingo reverse trees.

I had already "learned" my first 1000 Spanish words end of 2017 in 11 days and 20 hours with my Lingvist challenge before they went "Unlimited" and introduces the free 3000 words cap (greetings to Carlos, if you read this!) ....but I am definitely going to start both languages from scratch.

The two laddering trees are much shorter and provide some nice dedicated grammar skills, so I will put the newer CEFR A2 courses (156-159 skills) back for the next 2-3 years.

You have deserved a hopefully not that stressful day tomorrow! :-)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LangPhile

I recommend using the "TYPE MACHINE" it is software that keeps every bit of what you write.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Judy_Blue_Eyes

Congratulations on your streak.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/julienvanbeveren

I hope the wifi is okay because 1000 is a lot. Verry well done. Im learning Italian. I give you a lingot as a congratiolation.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/OrangeToby

And here I am thinking my 21 day streak is something.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/S.A.Debre

I have 20 days and I already feel like a demigod.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LangPhile

Yes, it indeed is something!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TravisMcHu

Me too Orange Toby I have a 24-day streak today.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/swduolingo2

WOW!!! That is amazing! That has been my goal for a long time, but I have never reached it. I hope to do so soon.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/uphilldweller

Well done on the streak.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vivian115830

omg! I can never keep my streak! how do you do it?! I always forget to practice german on the weekends, so... :( No streak for me!! But congratz! Awesome!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hermione256

I don’t let myself forget! And my mom always reminds me! ;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Emily57578

Congratulations on your 1000 day streak! I think it means a lot :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Emily57578

Do one unit before you get out of bed in the morning. Then it is done for the day. OR I am usually up late so I do one just after midnight, before I go to bed. That is the surest way.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hermione256

Yes, I rang in the new year by doing my Duolingo for the day at midnight!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Zig_Zag_Wanderer

That's very impressive, and I say that honestly.

However, I also always encourage people not to obsess over streaks, xp or lingots. It's really all about the learning.

I do understand how much it encourages one to keep at it, but I think the eventual loss of a streak will be counter-productive to most.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hannibal-Barkas

congrats, Hermione, well done. Keep going, three year anniversary is in sight!

Zigzag, I agree with you. But while I don't put streak over learning, a good streak still remains to be a 'nice to have'. For a wee moment I thought about killing it right before 1000, but, then again, why should I stop exercising for two days just to make a point that nobody will ever be aware of?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ToasterBoat

Congradulations! I find it super hard to keep a streak for more than a day. (probably why duo busted down my door and captured mi familia) I hope u can continue and have a great day/night


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lightning_11

I have a hard time keeping a streak up over the weekend, especially when I go to camps that have a strict no electronics EVER! Probably so I don't play computer games, but I really wish I could still do duolingo... it's not a computer game... is it?

Oh, and nice April fools joke reference.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielTap135

It isn't a game. At least it isn't supposed to be...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Emily57578

Can't you use your lingots to buy a weekend pass for these occasions?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielTap135

I don't think there's such thing on Duolingo...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/S.A.Debre

The Duolingo app has a weekend amulet you can buy for 20 lingots I believe.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hoopymoopydoo29

You can use Duolingo on the computer.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SebastianF8101

I would really appreciate it. I am so sad.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BiologicalLang

Congratulations! If you think you need conversational practice before you go, reply to this comment ;) (It´s free btw xD).


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YarkoRab

Congrats from me, I'll be there soon myself ;-)) If you don't want to lose your streak get yourself a friend who's going to do the minimum for you. My friend always does so and she has never lost her streak.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/S.A.Debre

Can't you just keep buying streak freezes?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hermione256

Yes, but they only work for one day. Either way, I would need to log into wifi every other day to buy a freeze.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LeoBlackma3

Can you buy only one at a time? I am going away camping for a few days this long weekend. I hope to get access while away but I thought of buying freezes just in case. 1000 days is such a long time! Congrats.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hermione256

Yes, one at a time. I don’t trust the weekend amulets because they don’t show up on every platform!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lightning_11

You can't buy anything without Wi-Fi, no internet, no duolingo, no shop...

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jacob_HermitCrab

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vesna2691

Congratulations, enjoy your holiday!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Marie-Clai133496

Félicitations Hermione!

Je vous souhaite un agréable séjour!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MarkRusso12

Congrats!!! Felicidades!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lightning_11

There should TOTALLY be a way to get your streak to continue while you are in an area that speaks a language your learning, but such a system would be hard to varify, especially if you don't have Wi-Fi. It would also be likely to be abused by someone. Oh well, maybe the mas streek frees would work.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aviral564273

That is amazing! Inspired by you.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Banana1515

Congratulations for your 1000 DAY STREAK!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Shypharagy

Vamos con este aprendizaje, felicidades su tu racha!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AvengerSwimrGOLD

Congrats! I remember when I had a 106-day streak and I lost it. I can't imagine what it would be like to lose a 1001 day streak. BTW I am giving you 5 lingots so you can buy streak freezes.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hermione256

Thank you so much!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Joserivas1508

Congratulations, that is awesome.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Han_413114

Congratulations! A lingot well earned!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Damilola463063

this is the level of dedication i want to be at!!!!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/zyxwvutsrqpo

!remindme in 952 days.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MikeNolan6

Congratulations!

I hope to have my streak to 1000 by Halloween. I have to work Duo into my summer plans, usually I try to do it first thing in the morning so I don't get distracted.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sharon228703

Congratulations, Hermione! A great achievement! Fingers crossed that you'll have wi-fi on your holiday! And I hope your Spanish study serves you well!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mikey184382

I'm so proud of you!!! You're doing great! Keep up the good work.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EnejLah

Almost 3 years without forgeting once! That sure is dedication.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/john635912

i wish i could get that high :p my streak of 11 isnt great


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cowboysexual

one day it will be great tho! she was once at an 11 day streak too


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielTap135

Right now as I see you've got 13 ;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/livlivlovesanime

congrats, just lost my 60 day streak ..


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielTap135

Aww sorry that happened :(


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hhgleeson8

Awesome! I just recently hit 100 and then nearly lost it...so I understand! If you are using the mobile version, it is possible to "download" lessons. Just tap on the lesson and then exit it. If you don't have wi-fi, it should still show up as available. Have fun on your trip!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hoopymoopydoo29

You can get an international data plan.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LeoBlackma3

You go girl !!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hermione256

Thanks for all the love everyone!! I hope you are all doing well with your streaks, but more importantly, that you are learning new languages regardless of the streak!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ben970652

Bravo, encore, incroyable!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hermione256

On holidays now and my wifi is excellent, so my streak is continuing!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielTap135

I would give you a lingot, but I ran out. No idea how that happened, because I had 5 earlier...
