Really Tired!!

My iphone isn't syncing with my lap top like it used to. I have lingots on the computer and gems on my phone. I did the 7 day streak n my phine and AGAIN neither phone of lap top register that I did my lesson yesterday (and I DID) so I lost the wager. This is the second time this has happened. I'm getting tireed of this and finding this site not as useful as before. If anyone knows of another site for learning languages, plese let me know. Thanks!!

Memrise, 50languages, Mondly languages.
There are PLENTY bigger (offline) learnings apps for Android and Portuguese!


You better concentrate on the DuoLingo (full) browser (PC) web interface.
The bonus is, you get rid of not so effective tapping excercises.

Just a suggestion:
You better test your RECALL rates (typing), especially into the L2 PT target language.

Memrise helps to test RECALLING L2 word/phrases with many supported the user scripts "all typing, autocorrect", whereas DuoLingo quite (too) often just let's you translate into English for the normal/forward EN-PT tree.


Yes, it is known that there are no sync detail screens for the IOS or Android apps.
So you always have to double / triple check on the web interface, that your XPs and streak synced with the online server.

Health / gems = IOS A/B group tests

"Health and Gems are only available on iOS for now
Duolingo will be testing these mechanics on Android in the future.
Duolingo does not currently have plans to bring this to Web."

Use Duolingo's web version (www.duolingo.com) in the browser of your phone instead of the iOS App.


.... and AGAIN neither phone of lap top register that I did my lesson yesterday

Here are some tips to prevent your streak in the future.

Losing a streak is a common complaint from people, who .......

  • use the Duolingo App
  • use an outdated operating system or an outdated browser.

Workaround for the App
Always check if your phone/tablet had synchronised with the Duolingo servers after doing a lesson. Sometimes it can take 5-10 minutes after finishing a lesson in the App.
E.g

  • have Duolingo's web version always open in the browser of your phone/tablet
  • set this browser in Desktop mode
    (maybe not possible in an iOS phone with a small screen)
  • refresh your browser after each lesson in the App, and check if the amount of XP increased in Duolingo's web version.
  • Set your daily goal to 10XP, in case of an unreliable wifi.

  • Check every day if your streek freeze is still equipped.

  • Attention:
    A streak freeze starts protecting on the day after its purchase:
    it's only an insurance for the future, it's not a free pass for the same day!
