Anyone else use Duolingo on a train or something where you have no reception and so you aren't progressing?

I really love using Duolingo to learn German but unfortunately the main time I have spare to use it is when I'm on an underground train, where my phone has no reception. Therefore, I am usually either unable to load any step while I'm on the train unless I remember before I go underground, or I complete that one and can't download the next step. As a result it's taking me a long time to learn the language because I'm not progressing.

Is there a way to do download all steps so I don't have to have reception all the time? I've been trying to get better at German for some time but I have to keep re-doing the same steps over and over and not progressing.

Many thanks for your help.

But the point is that I want to download it all so that I don't waste time doing other things instead :(

The app now caches about an hour’s worth of lessons and then syncs with Duolingo’s servers once it is back online. Interestingly, this also means that the app is now always a bit faster, because even when users are online, most of the lessons now don’t have to be downloaded on demand.

well that isn't working for me :( Many times because of the coming in and out of reception the app gets confused and I have to sign in all over again, often when I'm out of reception as well, which means more stuffing around and me never progressing :(
