Extremely leaning towards quitting Duolingo, try to change my mind.

I got tired of this site. I lost all my progress twice. today I was going to remove French from my languages, along with high Valyrian and when I removed French and reloaded the page it was still there so I pressed remove again and THEN the real website decided to load and turns out French was gone and all of the sudden the “French” I just deleted was my Russian. Yay

Yeah I’m also just tired of this, it’s summer, and I always forget to do Duolingo so I always end up doing it at 10:40 to sometimes never at all just to get my streak.

So try to convince me I shouldn’t quit. I’ll give my mom all my lingots

Ps it won’t let out another topic discussion besides troubleshooting, this broken site

Hi!

Try to take a pause. Watch movies and read books in the languages you're learning.

Then come back to Duolingo and start a new language in addition to the ones you are already studying. Maybe try Italian, it is very beautiful and you'll feel very motivated to study.

Hope I didn't made mistakes. Good Luck.

Alright, maybe I’ll just stop it for the summer then come back at the beginning of the next school year.

Yeah, that sounds nice. You have a right to pass your holidays without "past perfect", "present continuous" and Russian (I am from Russia myself, but I know how difficult is Russian!) :)

Try Memrise's courses for French and Russian: https://www.memrise.com/

Hopefully they'll be less glitchy for you.

Your deletion issues sound just like you being on a slow connection and now allowing the page to load fully before clicking something more, not a problem with Duolingo as such.

I'll also take issue with my pet peeve in this type of discussion. I don't think you lost your progress twice. That would mean that you had a complete mind wipe of your language knowledge twice. You may have lost your Duolingo points, but they are just a score. They indicate your progress but they arenot* your progress. What you know of a language is your progress, and that is something that will hopefully take a long time to fade from memory (and that won't fade at all, if you just use the language regularly).

But yeah, staying: as for me, my German skills have really gotten past the point where I can learn much from Duo but I stay here anyway for the constant repetition. Right now, I'm keeping up my German studies by taking the course in French for German speakers (more for the German than for the French). I'm also doing studies outside of Duo but that's more sporadic; the regularity of using Duo really is valuable..

I would try spanish. It isn't very stressful, and when you get the hang of it, it becomes quite easy.

Nah, I already did spanish before

Uh, you do realise that the "streaks" etc. aren't the real goal of using Duolingo? They can help you ensure you keep at it every day, but just because you miss a day on Duolingo you're not going to suddenly forget everything you've learned - but you WILL if you don't keep making use of it, on Duolingo or elsewhere. If you've lost your streak, set yourself a goal of beating your previous score, just like any other game.
