First level 25!!
I finally did it
I wanted to set a goal for myself in my language learning process on duolingo, and that was to try to achieve the highest level possible.
I originally thought it was going to be Spanish, because I had studied it the longest, but it ended up being French, which I'm glad it was.
Spanish will be the next one to Level 25, and I hope I can continue this more, as it is such a rewarding feeling.
I don't know if anyone would care, but last monday, I made a post about challenging myself to get to level 25 within a week, but from level 22, which you can view here https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/32378999 . I documented a little about my progress and you get to see when I managed to earn more than 15,000 XP within less than a week. I hope some of you can take inspiration or motivation from it, as I promise you... it was RIGOROUS.
Regardless, it paid off, and I'm happy I've finally reached to lvl 25. Just wanted to share!
Wow! 15,000 XP is crazy! I bet no one beat you in the Leagues :) Congratulations!!
as it is such a rewarding feeling.
Oh boy it is. I will never forget the feeling of when I reached level 25 in German and finished the tree. I can't imagine how it will be when I have it completely golden + stories.
Grands félicitations à vous! Le niveau 25 est une grande réussite bien sûr!
Et 15 000 XP dans une semaine? Vous êtes vraiment travailleur/travailleuse! Bonne courage avec vos études à l'avenir!
Well done. I'm currently in a battle to win my league and you are about 3500 points ahead of both of us.
This is a good thing because I watched a show on Netflix last night and although I couldn't understand all of it I understood more than I ever have before in a French show.
The more practice you do the more you get from it.
Anyway, you rock. Thanks for the inspiration.
Haha thats awesome! I've watched ,recently, french youtube videos and I've been feeling comfortable watching them! I'm glad you got inspired and thank you for actively watching my progress. It means alot :))
I watch Youtube to relax rather than television and I just recently switched over to doing most of my Youtube viewing in French. It feels like a big step forward. It seemed like my listening ability jumped up overnight and by overnight I mean over about a month. How has your experience been with listening to French.
Seriously, does anyone know how to view your level? I can only see by posting. I have 11148XP how far am I from Level 18. I couldn't care less about crowns or league tables.
Go to the learn page then scroll down to achievements, click on View More then on the right you will see a list of your languages, where you are and how much to the next level.
Nope. It's changed. I no longer see my level on my profile. I can see it when I comment in the discussion here though.
I've never had a problem finding my levels however this week it seems to have disappeared completely from my profile!
Congratulations! I saw your previous post and wondered how you could possibly get 15000 XP in less than a week. I do not understand how that is humanly possible. Even when I try to test out of a level, the maximum XP I can get is 20. Now that we have this leaderboard thing, I see people getting thousands of XPs and bunches of lingots. Am I missing something? It used to be when I tested out of a level, I could get a lot of XPs, depending on the number of lessons I needed to level up. No longer. Are some people still able to get these excess XPs by testing out? Finally, I am a bit concerned that my trying to compete for XPs and the leaderboard is distracting me from actually learning the languages. Instead of looking at the tips or reading the discussions for the answers, I find myself thinking "MUST GET MORE XPS!!!" It was bad enough when I felt pressured to get the 50 XP a day to continue my streak! I did see a post a while back about a member who ended his streak because he thought it detracted from his learning. I may do the same.....But I hate to end this streak! I think the little owl is playing with me.
Don't get too excited. The day I would have hit level 25 - they seem to have eliminated levels. I understand that hitting 25 did not by any sense of the word mean you were fluent or were "done" studying a language - but it was a target - and it is gone - on the day I was hoping to see it next to my name!
Enjoy your studies!
Congrats!! I'm hoping to get there eventually. Having reached this level, have you noticed a big difference in your speaking/reading/writing/listening? I'm curious to how much I might improve by the end.
15 000 its crazy... i hope i will make progress with my French and English :D
