Duolingo Personal Goals

Hey, what kind of personal goals do you y'all set for yourself on Duolingo? I'm focusing on 150 points per day for both Portuguese and Spanish. I find that if I don't set a goal then I might get on everyday but I'll maybe some days work hard but others just do the minimum to keep my streak alive. What other goals are you all setting for yourselves?

My goal is to get 3 new souls...based on this quote:

❝To have another language is to possess a second soul.❞ ‒Charlemagne

....then I can sell a couple!

What duolingo level do I have to reach before I get my new soul?



It depends on the amount of practice and translation you do. The more you practice and translate, the more points you earn, but only new lessons get you closer to your "next soul" :-)


My goal is a full coin stack every day for the language I'm currently working on (now it is German). My other big goal concerning German is to finish the tree by my Duolingo anniversary that comes on June 20.

Update: I did it! Today is June 20 and I have my German trophy owl.


I find I set goals based on (the somewhat vague rule of) how much I have learned. I noticed near the beginning I was able to obtain points much more easily than I am now because things have gotten more difficult for me and it takes more time and practice to get it right. If I were to base things solely off of points I think I would get discouraged!


By now, i think ill try to get my trophy in French, master in French. But i really have little time for that. I hope for that by the end of July when i get my vacation ;) later on, ill start Italian. My grandparents were italian and where i live theres a huge influence from Italy!! I have quite a few friends who can speak Italian. So, its necessary for me too :)


Are you visiting France on vacation? I shall wave to you from England.


I'm just trying to get in here every day. :)


Hey that's a great idea! My goals are basically just to learn at my own pace and do as best as I can! I gonna try and master spanish though coz that would be nice!
