Different streak count for each language?

I have a 41 day streak in French. I just did a German lesson, and the streak on that page shows 41, even though it's actually day 1 for this language. It would be nice to see individual streaks for each language. Too complicated to track? Too easy to load up on lingots? What do you think? Also, does this mean that if I skip a day of French to focus on German, then I don't lose my streak? Thanks and Merry Christmas!

You can see the individual streaks by going to your public profile (Not the Home page, but the little person icon) and hovering over the flame. I don't know the answer to the skipping a day question though, sorry.:(

Fröhliche Weihnachten!

There are different streaks actually: streaks for individual languages and the total streak. Total streak grows whichever language you practice. So, you can switch between your languages every day (e.g. first day German, second day French, third day Spanish), and your total streak will grow while individual streaks will be reset every time you skip a day or two for that particular language.

That is what I understand. Maybe you know what happens if I skip a days practice but not in another language, and I have the 'lingot to maintain streek if you miss a day' - does the language not used gobble up the lingot, or is this only applicable if I do not practice at all?

As far as I know, the Streak Freeze only works for the total streak. So, if you skip a day in one language but practice another one, your total streak will continue without the Streak Freeze being used.

If you only learn one language, skip a day and use the Streak Freeze, your total streak will continue, but your streak for that individual language will be reset.

That's an impressive looking streak you've got going on there :-).

Edit: I am adding this, because this is usually connected to the questions about streaks.

Right now, the majority of my streak is in Spanish. I need to continue to practice Spanish each day to keep that number. I am also doing English (via Spanish to English tree.) I don't have a very long streak in that. If I miss a day of English, but continue to do Spanish, i will keep my Spanish streak, but lose my English streak. :)

Usagiboy7, I don't think this is currently the case. I started duolingo in May 2015 using the PC and the Android interfaces (I have a BlackBerry and have side loaded duolingo through the amazon app store). On the PC interface I have only been able to see my total streak (which is the one that matters concerning lingot accummulation).

On the Android app, I had been able see my individual language streaks on the old version (the one that used the hearts); in the new version there is no way (that I know) to see my individual language streaks. I think it would be nice to bring this back. Also, the old version of the app would show me the XPs earned over the past week or so at the language level; again, not the case with the new version.

It would be great if duolingo could start providing again data at the language level. My activity on other languages should be irrelevant if I am trying to monitor my progress on a specific language.

This post is about a year old. Duolingo has changed some things since then. :)

Edit: oops hit post too soon. If you would like to suggest that Duolingo make a change, you can make a post for it in the forum.

Hi!

This is an older post, but the question is still valid. So, as of 2016, what is the current rule?

Only a general streak is counted? So you can switch between languages and the language specific streak is not counted but they all are counted in the global one?

Is this valid for both the site and the Android app? I remember that at some point in the last two years I lost a streak because there were different rules for the site and the app. Is it consistent now?

Thanks!

I've read a lot of conflicting answers on this perhaps because it varies between the PC version, android app and apple app, not to mention it appears that Duolingo has changed the rules over time. I'm going to create a new account and test this out for myself on PC and android and will post my results. I'm focussing on learning French (as an English speaker) but wanted to start a reverse tree (learning English as if I was a French speaker). Since the latter isn't as important to me I may not do that every day, but don't want to lose my primary streak of learning French (currently at 62 days).

I performed a test. I added 3 languages (learn French and German, both as an English speaking person; and learn English as a French speaking person). I set my daily goal to 10 XP. Day 1 I completed 1 section in each language and achieved my 1 day streak. Day 2 I only did 10 XP in my learn french. I now had a 2 day streak. Day 3 I did 15 XP in my "learn English as a French person". I now had a 3 day streak. Day 4 I again did 10 XP learning English and I now have a 4 day streak. I didn't do any testing of streak saves. So it would appear that the way things are working in March of 2018, you can be learning multiple languages, even from different starting languages (in case anyone is doing a "reverse tree" as I am) and as long as you meet your daily goal as set in the app, you will maintain your streak. You do not need to do you daily goal in every language...just one is enough. Hope this helps!
