My longest streak yet

Hello everyone,

I started Duolingo about a year ago. Honestly, when I first started it, I didn't really have much motivation to practice on it daily because I thought "Why study Spanish here when you already are taking a Spanish class?"

I got a few streaks, lost them, then got them back, then lost them again. I basically forgot all about Duolingo until June, when my Spanish class ended. I then started to go on Duolingo daily, and found it very enjoyable. I had been using the app prior to this summer, and I don't know, the app seemed less enjoyable than the website. I realized that I enjoyed practicing on the website much more than on the app for some reason, so now I do the entirety of my practices using the website.

I have learned so much already in the span of a month. So here I am, studying Spanish, and enjoying my longest streak of 30 days. It may not seem very big compared to the gargantuan and impressive streaks of many other dedicated users, but it's at least something for me. It means I have consistently practiced and met my daily goal for a month straight, and to me, that is a big deal. I hope that someday I will get a fifty day streak. Until then, I'll keep practicing and hope for the best!

That's amazing news! Well done! ^-^

I've never really kept a streak alive for more than 10 days. One day, I hope that is, I'll manage to keep a streak of 100.

      Nice, congratulations!

      Back when I was learning German about 2 to 3 years ago I carried a pretty decent streak, which I remember what my personal best was. I'm gonna see how long I can keep it going now. Wish me luck!

      This is my longest streak as well and the most motivated I've been to learn a language yet. I've always wanted to but I never actually put in the effort but I finally did and so far it is paying off very well. Jag älskar duolingo!

      Well, I certainly hope to get to that point someday.

      I have been the same way. I've been doing Duolingo for 4-5 years now, but never had motivation to keep a streak. I would always slack off on the weekends. Now I practice on the weekends as well, and those 2 days a week sure do make a difference!

      Hey - thanks for sharing your story. I'm currently on my FIRST ever 7 day+ streak so I totally understand how you feel. I've not been very motivated this week, but having gotten this far I'm determined not to miss another day before reaching 31. But now I'm determined to catch you so LOOK OUT. I'm right behind you....lol!!

      Nice! I have a 21 day streak right now, which I think is the longest I've had. In fact, I've been keeping this streak ever since I created this account (I had another one a couple of years ago). Good luck on getting a 50 day streaks or even more!
