Timeshift on Duolingo, impossible to maintain streak

I got Duolingo when I was in China, now I'm back in Germany but the timezone of the system is still on the chinese time zone. Therefore it is hard to keep a streak. My appstore is in german and my phone as well, I don't know how to change the time in duolingo. Does anyone has the same problem or has got a solution?

Best, Tom

Your time zone is always exactly what you signed on as - it cannot be changed.

However, if you just do some work a few times a day, you can keep a streak. Just think of it as "daily practice" rather than "must finish by midnight"

I never had the problem but from what I have read it might work to log in and out of duolingo on the phone several times, maybe start the app once or twice and possibly re-set the time zone on the phone in the meantime - even if it is already correct.

only on Android, from what I have heard - and since they said "App Store" rather than "Google Play", I'm guessing they have an iPhone.

So it might be a workaround for the OP if he borrowed an android phone set to his regular time zone and started the duo app there with his account, just the once.

We all have 24 hours to reach our daily XP goal... plenty of time!

Yeah but my daily goal ends now at 18 pm, which is kinda bad because I get off from work at 18 pm.

(I think you mean "6 pm" -- 6 hours after noon. 18 hours after noon would be six in the morning -- "18 pm" would mean "30.00 Uhr".)

Well, if you do Duolingo every day after work, it's not a problem (it would simply think you like working on your language early in the morning). Or if you do it every day before work.

You would only run into a problem if you do Duolingo before work one day, but after work the next day (according to your calendar).

yeah you're right. I just have to start a streak after 6 pm then it's going to be fine. But after all it is still confusing haha
