Motivation

Hey,

It's been a while since I've been on here and I used to have a quie high streak, but recently I've lost the motivation to come on here and learn new languages. I've had an accout on here for a year now. Due to my lack of motivation, I lost my streak. I would like to slowly gain my streak back and be excited and motivated to come onto here again. I would like some advice on how to gain my motivation back.

Thank you for reading and helping out :)

I would just think about all of the possibilities of what could happen if you learned a new language. I see your highest is french, so if you were fluent in french, then imagine traveling to France and talking to the locals fluently, understanding them. Wouldn't that be cool? You could also talk to someone who knows french, and impress them. :)

Choose one time of day and be consistent. And just set a goal of one lesson a day. That's less than five minutes of your time. It's an easy commitment; you can do it!

And then reward yourself with something in that language. (I see that one of the languages you dabbled in is Chinese, so let's go with that for the moment,) "I've always wanted to watch this Chinese drama on Netflix..." "I've always wanted to read this Chinese poem." "I've always wanted to know what the words are to this Chinese song..." "I've always wanted to visit China and so I will look at a map in Chinese and some websites and plan an imaginary trip." Choose something that you will be proud of and that is fun.

So, recapping: 1. Five minutes of Duolingo a day. (You can increase this after you have set the habit.) 2. Some goal of what you will do with the language.

And finally, one more piece of advice: You've got quite a bit of languages up there. Don't start a new one until you have a solid footing on the current one.

Have fun!
