Taking vacations, without affecting your days in a row statistic. How do you do it?
I am enthusiastic about language learning! However, my wife deserves some time away this. We are both retired. She is a retired nurse, specializing in the elderly. I'm 77 and require her monitoring. Duolingo members spoke of freezing such time off. How does that work?
No real way to do it effectively. You can buy a “streak freeze” to freeze it for a day, but that needs to be purchased one day before the day you miss (will not take effect the same day it is purchased). So you can do those successively.
But my two cents, as someone with a busy life and lots of obligations who lost a 500+ day streak, is just enjoy the learning. If you miss a day be assured your knowledge is still there, and the resources of Duolingo will be here whenever you can get to it. The pressure of making always sure you are one step ahead of maintaining a streak can be a bit of a stressor.
