Mandatory streak post: 4 Year-Long Streak

A few days ago, I reached 1,460 days on the same Duo streak, meaning my streak has reached it's forth birthday.

wipes away sentimental tear They grow up so fast!

Thank you so much to Duolingo and their staff for giving me the opportunity to learn any of the unique and beautiful languages on this app at no expense. I hope to continue learning for years more.

Congrats, but four years is actually 1461 days---don't forget that pesky leap year!

I'm coming up on that same milestone myself! Duo has changed so much since then.

August 6, 2019

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

I'll admit, I forgot leap years existed. Oops!

And congrats on that! Indeed, it has changed so much these past few years.

August 6, 2019

technically there are spans of up to seven years without a leap year, but only on special occasions. For example, the year 2000 should have been a leap year but it was not, since every 20th or so leap year is actually not a leap year.

Thats just some food for thought

August 7, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Weylin366674

2000 was a leap year. In the Gregorian calendar centuary years not divisible by 400 are not leap years so 1900 wasn't a leap year.

August 7, 2019

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

Does that mean there are leap centuries as well? Cause usually it would be every 4 years. Does that mean 2096 would be a leap year and then the next one would be 2104, since 2100 is not divisible by 400? Interesting

August 7, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Weylin366674

Yes, that's exactly right.

    Wow, how many languages can you actually speak fluently now because of Duolingo?

    August 6, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Thomas.Heiss

    @ChaleBrown13

    Duolingo alone won't make you any fluent and be able to understand native recorded content / fast spoken speech or to be able to speak and to freely express your own thoughts very well.

    It is the beginning...not the final end.

    August 6, 2019

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

    It's a very good beginning, but you will need to branch out and push yourself to develop further indeed.

    August 6, 2019

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

    In your opinion, what level approx. can you reach with Duo alone?

    August 8, 2019

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

    Thomas.Heiss, I read somewhere your a windsurfer and kiter? Dunkerbecks classes in Grand Canaria is good. Very good.
    But what really made me a decent windsurfer back in the day, was all the times the Hookipa and Pozo waves almost killed me... hehe

    I went to Italy having done nothing but Duolingo Italian and 3 total Meetups for Conversational Italian (I did play some online conjugation games as well) and I was able to get by and understand anybody who wanted me to understand them, I even managed to use the subjunctive conditional correctly when we had to go to the outskirts of Florence to get our cell phone fixed! Yes I did look up electrical techno words from Google translate and I practiced explaining the problem with my imaginary techie all the way out there on the bus, but I did it!!!!

    Congratulations, rockerbox! The daily lesson becomes a habit, doesn't it, after a few years?

    August 6, 2019

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

    it does! It would feel bizarre to go a day without doing a lesson.

    August 6, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ALLISONTHO654832

    some people say weird. it means the same thing as bizarre.

    I accomplished 1155 days streak ~3,16 year. But I see no big difference in my knowledge maybe I didn't do much more speaking about learning completely new language. And is it a fault trying to learn too much languages at the same time? I see many people just try a few lessons of something new and come back to one to master it as much as possible using duolingo is it right? But I guess doing duolingo it's my good habit and people around me stopped me from interrupting me while I'm clicking lessons being with them xd Or I just get with years not so surrounded by people and engaged by events as I was before at university xd Finally I have too much time for duolingo courses hehe Any thoughts?
