I got married and lost my streak.
I wish Duolingo had a vacation mode so you wouldn't lose your "streak" when you absolutely cannot go online. I just got married, only missed one day of work and lost my streak in Duolingo. Oh, well. I still think it was worth it getting married, haha!
I once posted that someone who was going on vacation to the country of the language he was learning had the best reason ever to lose a streak. But I now think yours is better than that! Congratulations (and have a "streak freeze" on me in case you take a honeymoon weekend).
I think there are many people who wish that. xD Congrats on getting married!
actually you can buy a day off at the store but it has to be a day prior
No, it doesn't have to be a day prior. The text describing the Streak Freeze in the Lingot Store doesn't make it clear, but you can buy a streak freeze at any time, and it just sits there unused until you miss a day!
I lost my first 90+ day streak because I didn't realize that a Streak Freeze works this way, so I hadn't bought one.
Congrats on getting married ("Mozzle Tof" if you're Jewish.....please excuse the spelling as I have no idea how to spell this sentiment!). You can buy a Streak Freeze from the Lingot Store which will freeze your streak if you miss a day. It costs 10 Lingots and you have to buy it in advance. Have a Lingot to celebrate!
I lost my streak when I went on my honeymoon. I got to speak the Swedish I learned on Duolingo, though!
I had a similar issue. I had a 150 day streak then I had to go to a family reunion for a week and I had no internet. Congratulations on your wedding by the way!
I lost internet connection for a few hours ended my 40 day streak, from day one. Started a new streak @day 12 now. 19 years of marriage for me, best of luck
Wow, I have heard some wacky excuses for losing your streak, but getting married! That is the best excuse I have heard for not getting married.
"Sorry darling, the wedding is off, I simply cannot lose my streak.
This is such a cute story, and the comments following about maybe not having the wedding/honeymoon because you may lose your streak, really made me laugh :)
Bummer! It happens to all those getting married. Well, at least you have a spouse to complain to now... jaja
In all honesty I probably would've cancelled the wedding to maintain my streak.
Also, there's a "Streak Freeze" store item.
Lose my streak every time I go on vacation. The lingots pile up so fast, it's no big deal. Congats to you!
