Reached level 25 today having spend the best part of 2 years doing Duolingo...
Yeah cus I've been on duolingo for 2 years. But I haven't used it for the past year. It took me 2 weeks of regular daily practice to get to from level 20 to level 25.
And the wonderful thing about Duolingo is that there is always more content. Well, almost always. 797 crowns now in Spanish will give you many more years to work. Congratulations on your streak and your level attainment.
Well thanks guys!! I didn't expect any comments at all. I was very ill part way through and could only maintain perhaps 10 XPs per day for a while. I also lost a streak of 100+ at some point. Anyway, I go back over past lessons and do maybe 10XP from each section. My wife also does Duo so there's a bit of rivalry there. I went to Seville for a while last year and that helped except that their local dialect threw me on occasions eg. "Adios" became "Adio"... So I hope Duo continues with levels as it was an incentive for me... Not liking the league tables much..it's a distraction IMHO. Keep up the good work people!!
Congratulations. I just saw this. I am hoping that Duolingo is not about to stop using the levels. I am just discovering this discussion board as I react to the seeming disappearance of the levels! Only recently did I notice that the levels appear to go up to 25. (My husband is at Level 23 of German from English. Lately since my French has been getting higher-I am now at Level 20-I have noticed that 25 appeared to be the highest level one could attain.) If Duolingo has stopped using levels it will be too bad.
The term "level" seems to be used in two ways.
Each "skill" the round circle has 5 "levels" (maybe we should call these stages or layers). You are said to have passed the skill after you have completed the first "level or layer" But there are still 4 more layers or levels.
You get one crown for each layer/stage/level on a "skill (circle)" you complete. - so 5 per skill. There is also a "level" meaning how far advanced you are in the language. I have seen this called "profile level" And the number would be shown next to your profile. Someone did a chart or comparison between XPs and profile levels. It is here. https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/2261330/XP-needed-per-level But apparently duolingo has stopped using profile levels.
Although maybe it shows up on the comments - you for example show a level 25 in Spanish.
For those of us paying attention to levels, it is a bit unsettling for Duo to take them away - sort of like the road signs being taken down.
Congratulations. Enjoy your "diploma". Now it's time to go and use all this knowledge in the birthplace of the Spanish language - Mexico!
While studying three languages, I enjoyed working to get them all to their next levels at roughly the same time, but now I am often working blind as to how many xp's remain until the next level for each language. The levels still show up above posts, but not how many xp's to the next level. There is no consistent way to jog the level display to show up.
Good work, Davide138606, level 25 is my goal for all my languages (assuming that Duolingo hasn't changed how high you can go).
When you say levels, do you mean the golden circles before and after checkpoints ( I am doing Italian), as I have nearly completed 32 of them in about 40 days. I do not know the purpose of any of the scores especially but it is good when you get all the answers right.
No, Dorothy, by levels people are referring to what one has as the number after the flag for a language he studied. You appear to have reached level 24 in Italian which is very close (i.e. the penultimate level) to the top level of 25. Congratulations on such great mastery of Italian!
That seems a long time. I am nearly in the final section of the Italian course , having immersed myself in Italian for the last two months. I hope that I can handle the range of tenses.....
