What are XP on Duolingo

When you are completing the lesson you gain some experience points. According to Duolingo the more XP you have earned means you are more closed to the targeted language. There are many ways of earning XP, but one of the best ways to earn them is by completing the old lessons. Further, when you will be taking the legendary lessons or unlock new achievements you will be getting more XP on Duolingo. Some other ways to earn XP on the platform are by taking up Stories, podcasts, timed challenges, etc. Further, we have discussed some of the fastest ways to get XP on Duolingo.

What are the Fastest Ways to Get XP on Duolingo?

Following are the fastest ways to get XP on Duolingo-

1. Using the Desktop version

There is a big possibility that you may also be unaware of the desktop version of Duolingo. Duolingo has its own desktop version and when you will use it, the chances of getting more XP increase. It is because there is no heart system and you get unlimited health on the desktop version. Having unlimited health means that you can practice anytime you want to even after making mistakes while practicing. You will be able to complete all the lessons without watching any ads.

As your health is unlimited you will also not need to use your gems for refilling your health. If you are a person who can type faster on a laptop, using the desktop version then you will be able to complete the lessons quicker. Always remember that you can take the lessons of your course offline whenever you want to. When you complete the lesson you will move faster on the next lesson, which will help you to gain more XP.

2. Duolingo Event

Duolingo events are basically Skype video calls with other users who are learning the language you have taken like Japanese, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, etc. These events are usually free and help you to earn 250XP for a single event. Thus attending a Duolingo event is the fastest and easiest way of earning a lot of XP together. All you have to do is to attend the call and get in communication with other users. It is the best way of practising the conversation language in addition to the regular Duolingo lessons.

3. Early Bird Award

It is one of the XP boosters that is available on the platform. For getting it you will have to use Duolingo as early as you can. When you will use Duolingo in the morning and complete the lesson you will be unlocking the Early bird reward. However, the biggest difference between it and the other boosters is that you will not be able to get this booster at the same time. In fact, you will have to wait till 6 pm according to the local time to see it at the shop section. To get this award you will have to start the lesson in the early morning and complete it before the mid-day.

4. Completing stories

Stories are part of your course which help you to practise your listening and reading skills. You must remember that these stories are only available for some of the courses like French, Spanish, etc.  You will see different activities as a part of the Duolingo stories. If you are on the old version of Duolingo i.e. Duolingo Tree, then it was available in a different tab for stories. However, if you are on a new learning path you will get these stories in the course itself.

Further, if you are a member of Duolingo Plus or have taken the Family plan and are using the desktop version, you will still see these stories in a separate tab. In these stories, you will have to listen to a conversation and then need to answer different questions based on it. On completing the first set of stories you will earn 14 XP per story. Gradually it will increase when you will move to a harder level. When you will on a higher level, you may also get about 30 XP which is too high.

5. Duolingo XP boost up

As the name suggests it is a feature given by Duolingo which helps to boost your XP score. It is basically a temporary booster that will help you to earn double XP points. It is a 15 min long booster and you can double the XP within it. As you only have 15 minutes, you must try to complete short lessons first. Thus the maximum you can earn from it is 30XP for simple lessons (10 for completing the lesson and 5 for full combo). Earlier there was also a perfect lesson boost which gives you additional XP when you complete the lesson without making any errors.

Whereas if you are taking up final lessons you may get 50XP from it (20 for completing the lessons and 5 for full combo). Also if you are at a legendary level you can earn a maximum of 90XP from it. In addition to it, you must remember that you will not get extra XP for stories and podcasts. Thus you will only get XP for completing the lessons and timed challenges

6. Do ramp-up challenges

Ramp-up is a timed challenge which you will generally get on Saturdays and is one of the oldest timed challenges available on the platform. When you will take up these challenges you will get 40 XP within a specific time period. All you need to take care of is that you are not making any mistakes during the questions. To get this challenge you will need to go to the league tab and look for the challenge. These challenges will not only help you to get more XP scores but will also help you to increase your rank in the league. 

7. Revise the old lessons

When you come far in the learning path, you will get hard content in the course. You may not be able to earn some extra XP score. The best way at such a point in time is to revise the old content or take up the previous lesson again for earning more XP scores. Although if your ultimate goal is to learn the languages and not maintain your XP score, I would not recommend you do it as it will only help you to increase your XP score.

8. Switching off speaking and listening exercises

There are many such situations when you want to earn more XP but can’t practice your lessons because you can not take up listening or speaking exercises. In such a scenario you will have to tap on can’t speak nor and can’t listen now options. When you will do that both the exercises will be turned off. Although these exercises are super easy but due to the scenario you may only be able to take part in typing exercises. Thus it will help you to gain some extra XP score. 

9. Testing the units

If you have just started your journey in language learning, you must not do it. But if you already know more about the language or are fluent in a language, it can be the best and easiest way to earn XP quickly. If you are on the new learning path you will have to scroll down at the Duolingo path and see for the button that will have the option of ‘Jump here?’. When you will click on it,  you will see the test which will help you to know if you can skip the next unit or not.

When you skip one unit you will be able to earn 50XP. However, always remember that if you want to skip two units together it will not allow you to earn extra XP. Thus make sure to take the test one by one so that you earn more XP.

10. Take up a harder lesson

When you will complete a lesson and start a new lesson you will see the option of taking up harder lessons. When you will take up this harder lesson you will get the advantage of earning double XP. However, for it, you will need to spend 20 gems for taking up the harder lessons. 

11. Completing the audio lessons

Audio lessons are the feature that helps you to listen to a conversation between two native speakers of your targeted language. Audio lessons are a feature which is not available for every language. If your targeted languages have this option, you must take full advantage of it. All you have to listen to the conversation and answer the question asked while speaking. Once they will introduce new words, you need to translate them loudly.

You will also not need to touch your mobile, just set it at autoplay. When you take up audio lessons, there are 4 lessons together. You get 20XP for the individual lessons and thus if you complete all 4 lessons, you will get 80XP. However, if you are in the recent update you may not find this option on your profile. 

12. Completing all the levels of Match madness

Again to check for the Match Madness test you will need to go to the league tab. Though this challenge is not always available on the platform, you will get to know for how long it is available on the platform. If you are a super Duolingo member then you do not need to spend any gems to take them. However, if you are a free user you will have to spend 30 gems. You will get a certain time period in which you will have to match the words with their meanings. The only reason why you must choose it is that you can practice on it as much as you can till the time gets over.

When you complete the first level and reach the second level you will be able to earn more XP. So suppose if you are at level 1, you will get 40XP and at level 2 you will get 50 XP. Similarly, the higher level you are at, the higher will be your XP score. If you are finding the next level to be difficult, you can repeat the old levels again and again to get more XP.

13. Practice hub

The practice hub is the part in which you can practice the levels that you have already unlocked.  The amount of XP you can earn is based on the number of mistakes you make previously. Thus you must try to use it when you are able to get at least a 15-20 XP score in the lessons.

14. Happy hour

Happy hour is another feature in which you will be able to get 5 additional XP for every lesson you complete. As the name suggests it is 60 minutes long duration time and is generally around 7-8 pm. You will generally look for this time duration according to your local time zone. Although there is no particular day setting for it in most cases you will find it to be activated on Saturday evening.

Further, you may also see it on Thursdays but it is very rare. The best part of happy hours is that it is free of cost and you will not need to spend any money or even any gems for using it.

15. Joining friends on Duolingo

Duolingo is a platform where you can also make new friends. When you follow some Duolingo users you will also get to unlock your first achievement. When you will post your link on different platforms and people view your profile, it will also help you to earn some of the XP points. However, you must remember that you will not be getting a lot of XP scores for making up new friends. Having friends on the platform will also help you to complete the friends quest.

16. Set up your own goals

If you are a person who loves more and more competition, you must set up your own goals for getting a fixed number of XP scores daily. For example, you can keep a goal like you will be earning 100 XP daily. Once you complete this goal for a week try moving towards a higher goal. It will not only help you to get more XP scores but will also help you push your limits. 

Conclusion

When you start learning a new language while using Duolingo you will see an XP score when you complete the lesson. Although according to Duolingo earning more XP means that you are more close to learning your language. However, it is not true and most people want to earn more XP points because they want to stay at the top of the leagues.

If you also want to earn more XP points you can think of taking up Early Bird Award, using XP boost up, practising in happy hours, etc. Further, you can also get more XP by completing more stories and taking up audio lessons. If you are a person who loves to push your limits start setting up targets for earning XP points.
