How many lessons a day?
Hi I just started Duolingo and was wondering how many lessons I should take per day to optimize my learning.
I would stick to 1 or 2 new lessons per day, and then just do a lot of practicing of what you already know. If you feel very comfortable with what you already know, you can do more new lessons, but I think its best to take it slow and revise a lot. (Also depends a lot on your ability to memorize things).
I have an average of 100 points per day, so I do about 10 lessons - sometimes more, sometimes less, but at least one every day to keep my streak ;) It depends on the time I have, and the app helps to kill time while waiting for the bus.
Most of that is repeating old lessons, though, weakest vocabulary or the units I have recently learned and where I feel I don't have the words memorized yet (duo is far more generous in giving full vocabulary strength that I would). Once I feel comfortable I move on to the next lessons.
I think you should make as much as you like, and stop if you are bored or exhausted. Just do a little every day and keep it up steadily.
It depends how you learn. I don't overdo it with the lessons, i spend the majority of my time practicing what I already know. I think I am progressing a bit slower than other people. If i did 10 lessons a day, there is no way I would be able to remember what i have learnt. That is why i repeat things a lot. I do make sure i do at least one lesson a day though. I have been aiming for at least 100 points a day.
