That feeling when...
you’re at 160+ day streak, then miss one day by a few minutes and go back to 0.. :( (I forgot to re-add the Freeze streak)
yeah i thought of this aspect too. Maybe it’s time to move on. I feel like the german course can’t teach me anything new. I loaded all words into Anki (about 2400 of them) months ago and I’ve since mastered them. I’m just a bit off on the grammar. Time to pick up some german book i guess.
Yes Duolingo did the same to me when I changed a mobile and I forgot setting time before arrange making practice. For some reason the streak went back to zero. So I noticed the last streak I had and continued from zero. I know, it is not shown in my profile. But I also know that I have about double actually. So what?
At the risk of sounding anti-social....come on, people, what's the goal here? We're trying to learn a language (or two or three). If you miss a day and forget to use a freeze streak....who cares? Isn't this about what YOU are getting out of the website and app? Duolingo is trying to make language learning fun. I know seeing other people's length of learning is intended to get the competitive streak going. But let's try to focus on what we're all here for!
Bottom line: don't worry about it! You're at level 20, so you've obviously been practicing. Keep that up, and you'll be reading and speaking German.
I gotta say that it can be pressuring if you get high numbers for your streak ,and you know that if you lose it, it's not going to be a piece of cake to get it back. It would take me about half a year to get mine back and those 1400+ people? That's about the lifespan of Duolingo.
