  5. One-year streak

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

One-year streak

So, this achivement will probably pale in comparison to other Duolingo users out there, with their ongoing streaks reaching well over a thousand days, but this is something I'm really proud of. In all honesty, dedicating a minimum of 5 minutes a day to learning a bit of a language isn't the most demanding thing. Instead, it is the committment of not giving up which is the real challenge to many learners.

I'd like to take this as an opportunity to thank the Duolingo team for making this amazing, free resource for langugage learners around the world, and to the mods and community for providing answers, helpful tips and invaluable advice in discussion sections when I (like many others) stumble across a difficult lesson to grasp. Your help and support is truly someting I am very grateful for.

This seems a rather apt time to reach this goal because I have my GCSE French Reading and Listening Exam tomorrow and Duolingo has helped me with lots of vocab, sentence structures and idioms. Again, thank you, everyone.

Edit: Thank you everyone for your kind comments (and lingots!) and good luck with all your language-learning journeys.

extremely loud applause flares up in the background as I am reading this post since I couldn't even be bothered to open the app or get on the website because I am too lazy so that makes me very proud of you

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Thank you so much!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jack99802

Good luck mate, I know how awful MFL GCSE's can be having done mine about 4 years ago. Good luck again!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mwbrand1

Well done. Keep it up!


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

Thanks, and well done for your streak too!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Troublesum1

Congratulations and Comhghairdeas! I'm going to be hitting the magic number later this week as well, and it still boggles my mind that the time has flown by so fast. My only (tiny) frustration is that it looks like I'm going to miss hitting my 1-year streak at the same time as my Golden Owl in Irish by only a matter of days. ^_^


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

Thank you and well done for your achievement!


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

Wow! Do you have any background with Irish other than Duolingo?? I can barely get through basics 1 without hurting my brain! (notice how are flags are basically inverted lol, nice)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-Hodge-

Wow! Golden owl in Irish, that has not been easy! I did a couple of years in school a long time ago. Even though it's my native land, so few of us speak it.


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

Félicitations et bonne chance pour vos examens !


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

Merci beaucoup!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Teme23

good job on your streak it's a good achievement


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

Thank you very much.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KingKath123

Adam14701470, how much have you learned in one year? Are you nearly fluent?


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

Well, although I've been using Duolingo for a year I technically started properly learning French about three years go in school. I think Duolingo is a supplementary resource and you should use other tools as well. My French is nowhere near fluent and there are many gaps, but I can understand written and spoken French at a fairly basic standard, but only if you speak slowly!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KingKath123

Thank you, Adam14701470!


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

dude, this is a great achievement! you should contact the Duolingo team via email. (there might be other ways though.) also good luck on the exam!


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

    I'm sure you can ;)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SophieFoster221

    Congratulations! Achieving a year's streak (and then more) is what I've been striving for ever since I started! Which was not long ago, obviously. :)


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

    Thank you and good luck!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/chandler.leo

    How did your exam go?


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

    Thanks for asking. Apart from a few difficult questions on the Listening paper, everything went fine :)

    Wish you luck for exam.. :)


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

    Awesome job! I just achieved my 365 day streak just a minute ago! It has been a great year.

    Congratulations on your achievement!

    I just lost my 32 day streak, and then I see this... Congratulations


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

    This actually happened to me as well! Before this streak, I lost a streak of about a month but it only made me more determined to never lose it again.


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

    Congratulations !


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

    Thank you very much.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Moonwatcher126

    Wow! Did you complete the whole French tree? Gilded?! Even if you didn't, that's just-- wow! I aspire to be like you-- my streak is merely 8. But anyways, best of luck! (Not that you will need luck after all your practicing!)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/L7KE_

    One year shows true dedication - congratulations!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DennisChin8

    Wow that is dedication in its purest form! I also happen to be taking French exams, this year for GCSE and I know how hard it is to do the streak everyday, the frustration of having to do something so often. I guess you are having your writing exam on Friday, if so good luck! Am I the only one who struggled a lot with the French listening, I feel like I was guessing too much.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-Hodge-

    Well done, hope the examen go well!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-Hodge-

        Great job on French! My longest streak is seven days! ;) That is amazing that you kept a year long streak! You motivate me to get a longer streak! Have a great day and I hope you do wonderful on your exam!


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