my 87 day streak is in french not greek

October 16, 2016



Question: Control Panel->Language->Add Greek

Post: Your streak does not tell you what language you've practiced. Just whether you've gained XP from Duo for not.


Thanks i was wondering why the e mails were telling me that i had an 87 day streak in greek when i have only been doing it for a few days


Yes, I get that as well. It might be because Duo randomly chooses languages!
