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

I have just completed 1825 days (5years) of continues study in Spanish

When I started to learn Spanish 5 year ago I did not know a single word in this language .Now I know close to 6000 words in this language. I talk to Spanish speakers and they are surprised to hear Spanish from an Asian Indian. I consider Duolingo is the best language learning tool .I support them. I think the world would be a better place if we all could support them .Thanks to Duolingo

That's quite an accomplishment! I plan to quit my streak when I hit a year (in two days) (it was quite something to keep it up so long) 5 years is amazing! Congrats!

I said that too Polly. 365 days and I am done! I think I just automatically got out the phone and did some more lessons. Habit is hard to break!

July 27, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PrincessPolly1

Yes, look at that! You're already over 600 - well, maybe I'll see how long the habit holds out on me...

Why do you plan to quite your streak?

I guess you can lose your motivation to keep studying every day. Remember some of them are studying for more than a year. I am learning Deutsch for almost 4 months and there are so much to learn that keep me motivated but I guess when all the lessons get over I will leave this app. I do not yet. I need to finish and maybe it will take me more than a year. :)

What else have you done besides Duolingo? I ask because my understanding is that Duo only teaches you 2,000 to 3,000 words. And how are you measuring that you know 6,000 words?

July 28, 2019

Wow, what an amazing streak you have there!, I hardly couldn't hold that long...

I'd wish to have such dedication like yours, I get distracted so easily with other things in life not realizing how useful and entertainment is to learn a new language and knowing one thing or two everyday.

Next step, makin' a spanish friend and test my knowlegde, findin' out if it was worth my time. :)

July 27, 2019

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

I really feel you here. I still can barely keep a streak going. I usually have too much going on everyday that I just forget to do things, even eat sometimes. But it's so crazy to see how far people can go with a bit of dedication

July 28, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Glen341948

My approach to DL is to do it at the same time every day (after breakfast). That way it becomes a habit and you're less likely to forget.

5 years is either 1826 or 1827 days, depending on when it started. In your case 1826, because 2016 was a leap year, having a day more on 29th of February. Nevertheless: Congratulations! That's a freaking long time and i won't be able to beat you ever. First of all i hope to finish the Spanish course in a year, second because i will be in Cuba in between, learning from real people, not Robots, but due to honky-tonky internet overthere i probably won't be able to keep up my streak: either too complicated (via bad and complicated wifi), or too expensive for a Dutchie (via cellular data). We'll see. Keep up the good language spirit!

On one hand, those who achieve mighty unbroken streaks like your's are impressive. But, on the other . . .

People - it's not just about motivation.

If if was, then why bother? It's not compulsory to learn a language. Think about this: not learning a language won't lead to heart disease or diabetes. You won't land in jail for 'language debt' if you don't keep up your lessons!

If you want to learn, than learn. If you just want to dabble and learn a little about a particular culture and its language then that's fine, too.

I think the competitive environment here: measuring every step in a streak, leaderboards, etc - is starting to distort our perspective on what this is supposed to be about.

Especially what I'm concerned about is: whether we're neglecting other responsibilities in life in order to complete a 'streak'. It's not okay to neglect our families, friends, neighbours, even our health, just to complete a large 'streak'. Or even to become seriously proficient in a language (which is not the same thing as a streak on Duolingo - sorry) if the price becomes too high. Don't get me wrong. Learning a language - and the culture - is a great thing to do. But not at the expense of the things we already have.
