Those of you using Duolingo for some time have already discovered how this little number called streak keeps us coming back every day! It’s exciting to see it grow as we practice Italian or any other language we’re learning. But would you like to know who has, up to this date, the Duolingo streak record?

Duolingo Unofficial Streak Hall of Fame

This is an interesting question. To help us answer it there is a platformed called “Duolingo Unofficial Streak Hall of Fame”. To take a look at it, please click here.

Duolingo Italian

According to the count at Duolingo Unofficial Streak Hall of Fame, at the time of writing this post, the Duolingo Streak record is in the hands of a user that as you, is learning Italian using Duolingo. How cool is that? Of all the languages available on Duolingo, the user holding the record is learning the same language as you! And has enjoyed learning it with Duolingo for more than 7 years (at the time of writing this post).

I view it like this. Duolingo has done a good job with all the languages it teaches. And proof of it is the worldwide incredible following. But when it comes to Italian, it is the really best of all their courses, capable of keeping users coming back again and again and even hold the Duolingo streak record. What do you think? LOL.

And here is an additional fun fact, position number 3 is held by a user that as well… yeah… you guessed it! Position number 3 (at the time of writing this post) is held by a user that also is learning Italian! Hmm, that doesn’t seem to be a coincidence.

What does the Duolingo Italian course have that makes its learners stick to the platform for years?

What makes Duolingo so good?

I have my own opinion. I feel the platform is good, technically flawless and to cap it all, it’s free. Why wouldn’t somebody stick with it? What’s your opinion why positions 1 and 3 are held by Italian learners?

So here is the Top Five – March 18th, 2020:

1. Christi3: Learning Italian and Latin – Duolingo streak record – (2,624 days).

2. SarkaB: Learning Portuguese, Spanish and French (2,623 days).

3. johnarnold: Learning Italian, German, Spanish and Chinese (2,619 days).

4. DeeRamm: Learning German and Spanish (2,617 days).

5. jelinek: Learning German and Spanish (2,617 days).


Can I rely only on Duolingo for learning Italian?

I particularly have my own position concerning only using Duolingo for a very long time. I agree you can start using Duolingo alone but as time goes by you should complement your learning with other platforms. Keeping a streak is good, but don’t forget to also dip your feet in other platforms. If you would like to read a bit more about my opinion about this, check this post out by clicking here.

Please tell me about your Duolingo Streak?

Now, I’d like to hear from you. I’d like to see who has the record among all of us that comment here on this post. If you can share proof of your streak it would be nice too. Have you been able to reach 100 days? 200 days? What have you learned from your streak? Tell me in the comment box below.

I know of 2 friends that used Duolingo for sometime and today they are fluent in the language they were learning. I don’t know if they only used Duolingo or they combined it with other things. I’ll have to ask them. But what I know is that the platform seems to be helpful.

One of them told me about this Duolingo Streak. It motivated him to practice daily. Based on this, I’m encouraged to give Duolingo a try. So, my streak is beginning today!

    Hi Benson. It’s good you have the close experience of two of your friends with the platform. I always recommend Duolingo but I don’t recommend to use it alone. They probably combined it with other resources.

    I wish you all the best in this journey that starts today. Feel free to come here and share your progress or ask for suggestions. We’d be eager to hear how it goes.

Hi! I have been using Duolingo for about 7 months now but up to this point I haven’t paid attention to the Duolingo Streak. Reading in forums, I ‘ve noted that this Streak is quite a thing and have felt curios about it.
I’ll try to start a streak today to see where it takes me. Thanks for this Streak Hall of Fame.

    Jonathan Henry · March 21, 2020 at 11:57 PM

    Hi Joseph! It’s good to hear you’ve made up your mind to build your own streak. Practicing everyday will lead you to have a better command of Italian. All the best in this journey that starts today.

Hi, and thanks for researching and finding this list. I had always asked myself this question: who has the longest streak. Little did I know that it was somebody learning Italian! Fun fact. Italian’s course on Duolingo must be good! 😉

Thank you very much for your site. Keep up the good work. Stay safe!

    Jonathan Henry · March 22, 2020 at 4:42 AM

    Hi! Thanks for your kind word concerning this humble site. They’re much appreciated.

    Yes, the record being in hands of somebody that is also learning Italian took me by surprise too.

Duolingo has done a good job with all the languages it teaches. And proof of it is the worldwide incredible following. But when it comes to Italian, it is the really best of all their courses, capable of keeping us coming back again and again.

Thanks for sharing the fun fact that both position 1 and 3 are Italian learners.

    Jonathan Henry · March 22, 2020 at 4:43 PM

    You’re most welcome. Yeah, it’s fun to know that. Keep up your streak, we could have you soon on this list too. 🙂

Hello, I was intrigued about who had the record and have had a nice time reading this post. I agree with you: we can’t use Duolingo alone. I view things like this: we can build up our streak, it will only take us 2 – 3 minutes daily to complete our goal. But then go off to the other resources we’re using. Use Duolingo only as an alarm clock!

    Jonathan Henry · March 22, 2020 at 4:50 PM

    Hi! Yeah, that’s a nice way of viewing it. I like it! Using Duolingo as an alarm clock! 

Smoochi · March 24, 2020 at 2:13 AM

This guy with the record must have an alarm clock that tells him to practice three times a day! LOL. When I have been going with a good streak, then all of a sudden something big happens and my attention is shifted for one day and I lose the streak. Please ask this guy what he did to keep this streak alive for so long.

    Jonathan Henry · March 24, 2020 at 10:37 PM

    Hahaha, yeah we’ll have to ask him.

    Did you know that if you skipped Duolingo for a day or two you could still keep your streak? To read how, click here.
