You guys blow my mind..

Well, it's time for me to write a little something to all of you guys.. I've known Duolingo for about 4-5 months now and did a little bit spanish here and there.. then 4 days ago i, coincidentally, got back on duolingo - and haven't regretted it since! I'm duing about 300-400 XP a day (i'm on summervacation btw haha). But i also really enjoy spending time on the discussion site and reading all of your blogs. All the videos and sites that you're referring it's just awesome! So this isn't really anything more than a big thank you guys! I can't wait till i complete my tree! keep up the good work, you rock!

Vamos from Denmark! :D

I've only been here for 17 days, but the thing that delights me the most is meeting people from so many places, all over the world. Duolingo allows each of us to share experiences with people that we would probably never meet any other way, and I'm grateful for that. Learning a language isn't easy, and meeting new people and making new friends that you can share triumphs and set-backs with make learning so much more enjoyable. :)

I've been on here for 16 days and I can really attest to this. Everyone on here is so supportive of learning languages. I'm not sure how it is in other cultures but not many of my friends take me seriously when I tell them I'm trying to learn a language.

When my friends find out I'm learning a language, the first thing they all say is, "Why? It's not like you're ever going to actually GO to Germany or Spain!"...I tell them it's because I enjoy the process of learning a language and it keeps my brain active, as well. Heck, it's fun, sometimes...not only that, but the internet has SO many places to go to practice and interact with native speakers and, perhaps, make some international friends - just like Duolingo!

As long as your motivation and dedication are there to help you complete your goal to not only complete your tree but strive for fluency afterwards then you have nothing to worry about. Duolingo is great and a great social tool to improve your fluency.

Funny. I feel the exact opposite. Normally i have no time for it, but in vacations i can really focus 100% on learning! :)

I used to do a good bit of Duolingo a day (not as much as you did, only like 150-200 XP) but I started to forget most of the stuff I was learning so I cut it down to 1 or 2 tests a day and then listen to a Spanish TV show like Extra. Maybe this wont happen to you and I wish you all the best in keeping your streak going.

Some advice, and maybe you wont need it since everyone learns differently.

But 300-400 exp is A LOT, especially if you're progressing through your tree more than reviewing previous lessons. It may be better to focus less on tree progression, and then take what you've learned from a lesson and find other ways to use it outside Duolingo. If you're spending that much time here and not using what you learn on other websites, or spending time studying Spanish from other sources, you're really missing out. At least in my experience.

Plus you don't wanna burn yourself out either by sticking to doing just one thing over and over and over.
