Losing my 106 day streak means I am out...

Just want to give some feedback. I just lost my 106 day streak, although I thought I had the weekend freeze? Anyway, I am not interested in paying for the streak to come back, but have to admit after the loss of my streak, I have lost interest. I am sure there are others like me and I wonder if that is the best way to maintain your user pool?

Lost interest in Duolingo or learning French? If French, are you learning it just for the streak? I don't mean that in a rude way. I know how demotivating it is to lose a high streak. It keeps one wanting to come back everyday and do more. But, don't give up French just because you lost a number. If it's Duolingo you have lost interest in, give it another chance, if you're willing. This site is much more than a streak. But, in the end it's your choice ^ ^.

I wish you luck in your studies!

I've lost a couple of big streaks. One was 189 days and the other around 420 days. It was depressing at first but I really love Spanish and French (and if I had time I'd learn Czech and Korean as well).

Maybe you just need to take a break and come back later. With me, I missed the languages too much. I found I couldn't stay away!

You had an 106 day streak yet you're only on Level Four in one language?

well he could have just repeated the basics and gotten a streak every day

The streak freeze only freezes your streak for one day.

They are probably referring to the Weekend Amulet.

Wow - that is really sad. If your only motivation is a "number" then why are you bothering at all?

My friend lost his streak and it took him a whole week to force himself to get back to it.
